A one-time palace dating back to the 16th century, la Casa de los Azulejos is stunningly beautiful inside and out. Reviewers are a bit divided about the food quality, but that is simply because Mexico is filled with great food at really low prices; House of Tiles has been occupied for years by a Sanborn's restaurant, a national chain, and...

As much as the building is beautiful from the outside as much as the food and the service is awful. Not all that shines is gold

My first encounter with the House of Tiles was on a walking tour. I saw the wonderful Puebla tiles and heard about the history of the house. It was on a subsequent visit that I went inside to have breakfast on a Saturday morning. Clearly, this is Sanborn's flagship and the service was exemplary. The frescoes and interior detail are...

Grand Archtectual facility that was bought by a local restaurant/shopping chain that wanted to preserve this facility. Great place to stop for breakfast or lunch on a budget and take in the views of the facility

This is currently a very well-known restaurant and gift shop. The entire building is sinking on one side, so it's very interesting to see on the inside, and to feel a bit disoriented by the incline. Aside from all that, it is of architectonic significance.

Beautiful tiles building now owned and operated by a major department store. Inside is a restaurant. The maitre de gave us a pamphlet outlining the long sorted history of the building. We were able to walk through the dining room and walk a staircase to the second floor for our best view.
