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, since it is just a block away from both.

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.

This is a beautiful historic house with beautiful tile work. There is a restaurant in the courtyard which is a perfect spot for breakfast. it is best to start the tour of the old town after having breakfast here. wander around the shops and enjoy the beauty of the building.
