“Stunning place”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

It was a stunning place to see, such unique architecture. It was fairly empty on our visit, with only one tour group going around, and a few families. This made good opportunity for good photo shots. The décor look amazing, however the information of the walls in one of the rooms was in French or Arabic, but I was to interested in the patterns on the walls, floors and doors as I needed cultural photos for my upcoming art GCSE exam, this makes excellent links to travel, as it shows another culture style.

The only problem we encountered was the toilets seemed to have run out of toilet paper, I think it applies to majority of sights, so make sure you have spare on you.

If you have a spare 1-2 hours, I recommend a visit to this place as you will be taken away by the interior of it and it has a good range of photo opportunities

“To appreciate the morrocan architecture”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

A bit busy, with a lot of tour guides and groups,but it is worth the visit. Take your time and appreciate the details of the tiles, the doors, the floors and get inspired...

“Wonderful architecture!”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Very good to do alongside of the Saadian Tombs as they are close by. Very ornate mosaics on floors and walls. Beautiful ceilings and courtyards! Really worth seeing.

“Well worth a visit”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

A very innocuous looking place, very easy to miss the entrance. The route is laid out for visitors with plenty of signs once you are in there. No shop or tea room though so they are, unusually, missing on opportunity there!
The rooms we visited had a beautiful level of detail - the photos are better than any explanation. 10 dhirams to get in (about 80p). It wasn't crowded at all when we visited and there were no pushy guides either.
