Exceptional 10,0
Loved our stay here! The reception desk staff were so helpful, eager to please, and courteous, from making a restaraunt reservation, to confirming metro route, to arranging taxi to airport. Someone there had a love of decorative arts arrangements which we admired the day we arrived, and the following day were surprised by a change to artfully whimsical Halloween decor at desk and in the breakfast room- Its those little touches that add to the delight of our stay! Our room was updated bath,ect, yet retained the old town quaintness (ceiling beams, Maid did fantastic job cleaning.The location was excellent, between Opera and Sol metro, and so much was walkable without using the metro. (Royal Palace. Puerto Del Sol, Plaza Mayor). Very close to San Gines Chocolateria which you dont want to miss!

Mixed review
Hotel Francisco is in a wonderful location - walking distance to many places and on a very lively street. The staff were very helpful, but we found that the amenities were lacking. For example, the hotel does not provide things that most hotels do, such as tissues and a shower cap. The beds were adequate, with two pillows each. However, one of the pillows was very hard. The breakfast buffet was good.
