This was a nice place - guided tours are required and included with the ticket price. Took about 30 minutes. Some of the rooms were quite incredibly decorated. Overall worthwhile to check it out!

The entire palace is very nice. There're beautiful inlaid hardwood floors and decorated walls, but the Arab room is absolutely fantastic. It worth the visit.
