Recent guest reviews
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.
A gorgeous mansion With only 10 to 12 rooms/suites, Casona de la China Poblana is quite stunning. Thoroughly modern, yet holds the air of something ancient. We were there for a night, ate at the dining room where both service and food was excellent. Yes, Some of the rooms do face the street, but it did not bother us sensitive sleepers at all, as there is sufficient cover for the windows, including strong wood doors. The pace of the hotel is in keeping with the pace of Puebla; relaxing old world charm with all modern amenities. Very close to the center of everything in Puebla, this is really a secret charm. The hotel staff were extremely courteous attentive and sweet. I had the bad luck of losing my new telephone somewhere between a restaurant in the main square and the hotel - staff were helpful to me, although I never found it :( Still, I hold lovely memories of the hotel.
I loved my stay at the Casona de la China Poblana. I had the China Poblana junior suite and thought it must be the best room with the two balconies. It, like the hotel, is a great blend of Colonial and modern. Everyone was wonderful, service was great. Food, under the direction of charming Captain Flores, was very good. The location is perfect for exploring wonderful Puebla. I am an older female solo traveler and have traveled throughout Mexico which I love at Christmas. The only caveat is that there is no elevator and a set of stone stairs that can be a challenge for a senior guest.
A very warm welcome from the hotel staff and a shot of very good tequila to start our stay was excellent. We had a beautiful room, the Samarcanda Suite, which had not only a very spacious bedroom with beautiful bathroom and shower, but also an upper level, also very spacious, and beautifully furnished with comfortable sofas and a wide screen TV. We immediately felt at home and very comfortable. Outside our room the wide balcony overlooks the restaurant courtyard below and is furnished with coffee and tea-making facilities and a supply of biscuits. It has deep sofas, cosy lamps, a selection of local books, and tables and chairs overlooking the courtyard. Breakfast was excellent, though it didn't start until 8 a.m. so we missed it one morning when we had an early start, making do with coffee and biscuits. The only disappointment was that the restaurant closed at 7 p.m. on Sundays, Mondays and Tuesdays - a fact we hadn't realised until turning up at 7 on a Monday! Staff could, perhaps, warn guests of this. We had an early dinner on the following day and it was very good: Timbal de Pechuga (chicken stuffed with goat's cheese) was particularly good. We would have no hesitation in returning to stay at this lovely historic hotel.
The architecture is amazing, more than 400 years old and very well preserved. The restaurant has delicious food and reasonable price, not too high and not too low price for what it offers. I recommend the Meztizo Breakfast which is an Omelette filled with chilaquiles, exquisite.
