“exceptional boutique hotel in Puebla”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

My husband and I spent six nights at the Casona de la China Poblana and were extremly happy to have had the opportunity to have accomodations at such a lovely hotel. Our room was spacious and beautifully appointed with a great bathroom and huge shower. The breakfasts were included and they were exceptional as was the staff in the restaurant. I had my birthday dinner in the courtyard dining room and the staff serenaded me and brought me a delicious cake with candle. The entire staff was very professional and we were so impressed by this and their friendly manner. The location is in the Centro Historico and close to the zocalo so it is very convieneint to many majoy sights. I would highly recommend this boutique hotel of only ten rooms to any one visiting Puebla. Georgiana and Ted Erie, Pa.

The charm of this hotel is in the conversion of a beautiful old house in to a good hotel, and is located close to the Zocola. The restaurant is located in the open courtyard in the centre of the property.

There are only a small number of rooms which are furnished in a traditional manner. Rooms are spacious with a sitting area. Bathrooms have a separate shower and toilet with twin basins. There are a good selection of toiletries and bottled water is supplied in the room. The shower temperature was dependent upon the number of other people using hot water at the same time. We had considerable difficulty regulating the air-conditioning, which was either freezing or too warm. Our room was on the street and we had a fair amount of noise.

We encountered some problems due to our lack of Spanish, but this is our fault, not theirs.

Breakfast is included in the room rate and you can choose from the menu.

Beautiful building with really spacious and lovely rooms. Service was impeccable. Breakfast was included and wow....a great selection of gourmet Mexican food! You can walk to the Zocalo in 5 minutes and it is close to everything in the historic district. WIFI and good cable tv made it perfect. The bed was a dream as was the bathroom. They serve tea and coffee all day on the second floor patio. Could not ask for more. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Beautiful room with exposed beams, plaster details, beautiful furniture and huge. Noisy at night as our room was on the corner and one of the streets was obviously a major road. Restaurant had very good food and excellent service. Enjoyed our two nights there and in Puebla.

The property is absolutely beautiful. The building was built in 17th century but it has been completely renovated. It is located in the historic center, about 2 blocks from main square (Zocalo) The property is small with only 10 luxury rooms and suites. Each room and suite are different and uniquely beautiful. We have stayed there 2 times and have already made another reservation. The staff is friendly and professional. I highly reccomend this hotel. It is probably a most unique property I've ever stayed in.

Room Tip: Be mindful that the traffic noise can be heard to some extent from all rooms. If you are noise sens...

We came with our three small children and found the staff courteous and helpful. The rooms are spacious, individually and uniquely decorated, and all have modern amenities (designer bathrooms, lots of closet space, a pillow menu...) The restaurant and room service are very slow but otherwise do not have any complaints.

One can consider that the Casona de la China Puebla contributed to Puebla’s designation by UNESCO as a World Heritage. The hotel is close to the main important landmarks of the city, eg, cathedral, library, markets, museums, shopping area, and restaurants. It’s at the corner of two streets which may lead one to immediately fear sleepless night because of outside noise. However, the two rooms we occupied are well-insulated with inner glass doors and on the outside, very old wooden doors (the original 18th century doors?). Its beauty is seen within the courtyard/atrium circled above by a balcony through which visitors pass through on their way to their rooms. Each of the two rooms we occupied has a mezzanine, which could serve as a living room, furnished with a TV, a desk, and a sofa-bed for two (the other room has a Jacuzzi). In front of the rooms we occupied that give to the balcony (same as the other rooms) overlooking the atrium below, is a lounging area with sofas. Next to it is a counter where one could drink coffee or tea and have some biscuits too. Dinner and breakfast are served in the atrium, each time with a musician either singing or playing a musical instrument. Dinner’s menu à la carte included international and mostly traditional Mexican food. We were there on a weekend and the sumptuous breakfast buffet also offered both international as well as Mexican food. There was a varied choice of warm food which could be prepared right away. I tried the “rajas” (cooked green chiles with olives, onions and cream) and found it very tasty. It’s evidently a luxury hotel. The personnel was friendly and courteous.

Room Tip: Google the site of the hotel and pick up the room of your choice. Each room is decorated differently...
