Everything about this hotel is perfect...location, service, food and a beautiful interior. The people are very kind and helpful! Our corner suite was gorgeous, with everything perfect! Housekeeping out of this world.

My wife and I escaped for the weekend to Puebla. We arrived at Casona around midday on Saturday, they welcomed us with delicious margaritas, which we enjoyed in the tranquility of the second floor lounge. Our room was “La Nao”. Very comfortable and the bed was supreme. At the restaurant we enjoyed of the “buffet de moles”. You can taste five different “moles”. It is a must to taste all. The hotel is right in the middle of the historic center so you can walk around very easily. We wanted to buy genuine Talavera so they gave us the best advice: only buy at Talavera de la Luz. NEVER at the Parian market. The market is very nice and a colourful experience but some people may try to trick you into buying pricy merchandise arguing it is genuine Talavera.

We just loved this hotel... our room (the Samarcanda Suite) was just amazing!!! The room is so well appointed, spacious and has verandah's that overlook Calle Norte. Staff are amazing, and so, so helpful... nothing was a problem, and always with a smile. The hotel is within walking distance to central Puebla and you find yourself wandering down little streets looking in great unique shops - just a lovely city to visit. The only thing we would change - is our time in Puebla was longer. Thank you to the staff at Casona de la China Poblana for making our stay such a highlight on our Mexico holiday. We'll be back...

My wife and stayed in a large quiet suite. Chose Casona for its gourmet dining and perfect Historico Centro location. My favorite restaurant in Puebla. Avoid rooms with windows on street. Casona is splendid peaceful retreat in a prosperous and noisy city.

Though we had several options, staying in the Old Historic district was the best choice that we made. This hotel is centrally located: one block from the Zocalo and main cathedral, within walking distance of many local attractions and across the street from a major chapel. We had the la China Poblana suite which was nicely appointed with a sitting area, closet and a great bathroom. It had doors opening on the corner of the building which can be a bit noisy on a weekend night but we used earplugs. I loved the location. The staff are friendly and there is a restaurant in the courtyard. I loved it!

This hotel is superb, great location, short walk to the main square, very friendly staff and the rooms are delightful each with a different layout, we were there for a wedding and the hotel took care of everything. Would definitely stay here again

We stayed for a couple of days and had a wonderful time. Service is great. Rooms are big and very comfortable. Food is good and we had the chance to try a 'Moles festival'. The history behind the house is very interesting, and the infrastructure is lovely. It's also very well located for tourism.

I have spent three nights in Puebla, at this hotel, let me start saying, not nearly enough for all the places to visit and history to learn. I will now need to come back for at least one full week. The hotel is a boutique, understand: "literally a boutique hotel", with everything thought to its minimum detail. An amazing atmosphere and the most friendly staff. And this is coming from someone that spends 300 days per year in hotels. The restaurant is excellent, starting with a very authentic Mexican buffet and lunch and dinner menus are well designed and deliver to the perfection. And to add the last cherry, the history of the place is fantastic, you must ask for the full version of how "China Poblano", influenced the whole region. All packaged in a very reasonable price. I left with only one regret, should have planed my week better and stayed three more days!

I booked my adult workshop students(also friends)at Casona de la China Poblana as I knew they would love it and they did. I stayed at another hotel, but spent time with them at Casona de la Poblana. The service was excellent and very personal ( which doesn't occur in many hotels these days). The rooms were well equipped and beautifully decorated without being overly ornate. I had been familiar with this hotel as it houses my favorite restaurant in Puebla by the same name Casona de la China Poblana. It is also centrally located. I highly recommend this hotel. The breakfasts do not come with the room, but are delicious.

Casona de la China Poblana was a charming place to stay with updated rooms that were lovely. The bathroom was wonderful and the room we were in had a wonderful balcony. The restaurant was pleasant or we could order and eat upstairs in the courtyard terrace. Service was wonderful but Problana food was not our taste - we don't enjoy mole and usually eat a diet with a lot of fish. One caution the stairs to the rooms could be difficult for anyone with extra needs. The entire staff was wonderful. They arranged for us a massage and facial in the room and took care of all our needs. I didn't like the coffee maker's coffee but that is a matter of taste. The only mistake we made in our trip to Puebla was renting a car at the airport even if there was free parking. No need for a car. Would definitely return there again.
