  • Nice quiet place. Lovely architecture. Make sure you go upstairs it's amazing. Shame I didn't get enough photos. Good to learn more about carpets and see different styles from various areas.
  • Just like many other places. The wall tiles are what you get. The palaces feel empty and devoid of their once prime purpose ( a livable home)
  • It's nice if you don't have a lot of time, be careful with the price, sometimes some tour guides ask you for more money than it is. There's no flyers with the price.
  • It worth it to go. Its not very crowded so you can enjoy the views of this amazing "little palace". I recoed to go at 3pm or so....when its almost empty.
  • Highly recommended. Even if you are not into carpets or you have already paid too much for one at the bazaar in Marrakech, it is worth a visit. Stunning building and interior, traditional and modern carpets + you can learn about its Morrocan origins and history.
