Nothing to dislike. A great historical site well worth a visit. An oasis of peace and calm in th emidst of bustling Marrakech. Wonderful courtyards with ponds, fountains and trees, the sounds of birds singing, cooll and calm. Wonderful architecture and amazing mosaics. Give yourself loads of time to get lost in this treasure. And at 10 Dirham for entry it's a must.

Hard to find in the first place. Not so interesting to see, all rooms look alike and no explination, only at the entreance in french and arabic. Beautiful ceilings though. 10 dirham for adults and 3 for infants.

Lovely to amble round, but bring your guide book, or cough up for a guide (available in a myriad of languages) as there is little information around about the palace. Or do what I did and eavesdrop on several groups... What remains is beautiful; the ceilings especially so. Toilets good and clean.

Though it is not that old, it has a great architecture and one can see how the houses of rich people use to look before. Dozen of smaller and bigger rooms with a beautiful courtyard can keep you busy for about an hour, just watch for the opening hours (they close around noon time) and try to avoid the crowds.

So, it's only £1 to get in, but they should charge more and give you some idea what you're looking at. It clearly was an amazing palace at one point, but now it's just a collection of empty rooms that have nice ceilings.... We were there for about 5 minutes.

If they put a bit of effort into it and had some more info I'm sure this would be more like a 4/5 rating.

That said, it is pretty close to the square and cheap so worth popping your head in to get an idea.
