This building is good for photographs from the outside. Inside it has a famous department store called "Sanborns". It has a nice restaurant. Nothing with a wow factor, but has good prices and good portions. If you dont dare to have traditional mexican dishes, start...More

The food is poor yet expensive - the quality is not good. Saggy oven cooked chips, poor quality meats etc. etc. The service is not great either. We gave up waiting and went to pay at the till at the end. In summary - if...More

I come back here again and again, it's such a sight to behold. It makes you both appreciate the craftsmanship of yesteryear and lament that it no longer exists.

The House of Tiles is a stunning 18th century palace covered in blue and white tiles. It is located a few blocks from Zocalo. it's nice to admire from outside on a tour of the city. Today it's home to a restaurant.

Surprisingly beautiful interior inside a remarkable building. Great for a breakfast, coffee or lunch. Kind waitresses in colorful dresses complete the experience.

I brought a group of people to come check out the Casa de los Azulejos while we were walking around Centro Historico. It's very close to Torre Latino and Palacio de Bellas Artes. It's worth checking out if you're in the area. There is a...More

This old building has much character and has stood the test of time. Still a very useful building as it is a Sanborns department store and restaurant. While you could have a better meal elsewhere, the building is best seen (IMO) while having breakfast at...More

The building's exterior is very nice with the tiles, especially at night. Inside is a Sanborn's, which has the clean bathrooms and great chocolate. This one has a nice cafe and courtyard. This would be a nice stop while visiting Bellas Artes or Torre Latinoamericana,...More

This is a historic place, with great history and wonderful installation. Food normal for a chain restaurant that caracterized it, try enchiladas suizas, Mexican food but not spicy. The personnel use a traditional uniform, and location is great for the Centro Histórico

The house of tiles is basically a tiled building that is now a restaurant and commercial space. Was interesting to see, but not that big a deal to go out of your way for.
