You will see this as you walk from the Belles Artes to the Zocolo as you walk down Madero Stree. Interesting to see, but its a passing thing.

The Casa de los Azulejos is covered with tiles in dire need of a good power washing. As you enter, you realize you are in a high-end department store. Going past the business area, you will access an enormous inner patio, surrounded with beautiful balconies, gorgeously decorated with colonial style fountains, frescoes and more tyles. We suggest you sit down... More

Walking around the historic town center we stopped for a few shots at the House of Tiles. Not really a must-see but part of the map nevertheless.

Certainly, one of the best spots to visit in Mexico City downtown. It was the home of the First Sanborn's Department stores chain in Mexico. You can have great shots during weekends and enjoy a nice walk around this area. Recommended for first-time visitors only, because there is not too much to see inside. Easy to arrive, Google Maps or... More

Very interesting from the outside and whilst we did a walk through looked to have nice restaurants. We had intended to return but got waylaid by the cocktails at the Grand Real, oops.

If you want to eat in a lavish restaurant and not pay lavish prices, this is the place to go. Food and service are outstanding.

All the great reviews are true: it's a beautiful colonial building that is a pure joy to experience. I really enjoyed breakfast—something about being there in the morning and their wonderful juices (guava, cactus, etc). Went back another time for an early dinner and had their signature Enchiladas Suizas which originated there (named "suiza" after the Swiss because they're rich... More

As the title suggests, its ok to look at and there is a shop/restaurant inside but its not a must see. You will probably walk past it and be like "Oh theres that Tiles buildling..."

We went here for lunch and were amazed by the beautiful space. It is beautiful on the outside and the inside is just as spectacular. It's like a little department store on the first floor and there is seating for the restaurant on the first floor and upstairs. Unfortunately, we had the WORST service. We had to get up TWICE...
