House of Tiles (Casa de los Azulejos) reviews
Beautiful very ornately tiled building and great location in the middle of many attractions. I did not go inside but you can and I believe it has a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. more »
Very nice building outside and inside. Apparently as well very popular. We have been served in the big hall with mirrors. The food was average and the service was not stylish like the house itself... more »
This is a beautiful historical building. It is definitely something to see if you'd like to see a genuine piece of Mexico. It has both a store and a restaurant. The store has books and traditional candy. The restaurant has beautiful high ceilings and the architectural will take you back in time.
Had to go inside just to see it. Considered to be an old place from old times that kept its style with no change or additions. Long wait if interested and crowded too. A gift shop and a chocolate display at the entrance worth a try. Next time I will eat there.
