Owner description: After your hammam at Mythic Oriental, come for a stroll in this extravagant 19th century palace. You’ll be able to prolong your relaxation with the beauty and quiet offered here.

This palace was built in the late 19th. century for the then ruler. It only costs 10 dirhams to visit it and inside, there are a series of rooms which give some impression of what life must have been like. However, it is completely unfurnished, so it doesn't really compare favourably with some other places I have visited. The bare rooms give little idea of the vulgar ostentation of the times - as, for example, the Dolmabahçe Palace in Istanbul does.

Visited the palaces via a thomsons trip. It was lucky we had a decent guide aziz who I had before on a previous excursion. Lucky for us he knows his stuff, not one of my most favourite trips, but I as part of history of Marrakech walk. Oh be prepared for lots of walking so wear good shoes. You will need to negotiate the narrow streets trying not to get run over by the hundreds of bikes that do drive through the souks, be aware at all times so please please do not think of using headphones walking around the souks, it can be pretty dangerous. The palace was so so, it was good that they have preserved their heritage, but toilets in this place are vile and they asked us for money as we left disgusted...sorry fix up your facilities and then maybe people would be happy to tip.

This place is a must-see in Marrakech, if you appreciate architecture and history, definitely visit this place. The work on it is amazing, very detailed, even though some of it is made of wood. Take a guide as this place has an interesting story and enjoy it. There are power outlets if your phone dies every 2 hours like mine. Beautiful place.

the entrance fee is very cheep : 1 euro

We went since this is one of the 'must-see' attractions and while the courtyard we did see was lovely, it was absolutely heaving with tourists in big tour groups blocking the paths. The rooms themselves were beautiful but very similar to in the Dar Si Said where we were able to wander more freely and which was less busy.

I think the main courtyard/riad/square of the palace was shut - a big disappointment to us since the map and previous reviews made it look like we would go through there, and this that might have contributed to making it so busy.
