We had an great stay at the “Franklin hear the Sound” Jose’ and all the front desk crew were amazing. Would highly recommend.. King size beds we’re very comfortable and room was serviced every day.. fresh towels, coffee and complimentary water was left in our refrigerator every day. Bus one block away and short walk to town center for shopping cafes and metro!

Hidden musical Gem
A little far from the station but doable if you only have 1 bag each. There are good restaurants nearby with really reasonable prices that the staff can recommend. The theme is very musical and in our room we had snare drums as night tables. The bathroom had a second optional light that was blue and shone on a disco ball. Sadly the aux connection on the cd player/radio didn't work. Room cleaning was okay but missed essentials like more coffee or tissue in the restroom. The front desk staff was excellent giving great advice about the local area from food to markets. The breakfast you can have there was great for 5 Euro a person buffet style breakfast. Includes some meat, fruit, breads, pastries, coffee, jam, Nutella and more. Was a little difficult to find. I'd recommend to them to post a picture of the door ornaments to make it easier for travelers.

Great place, great staff
I had many airline problems which lengthened my stay unexpectedly, the hotel staff were extremely helpful in helping me sort it all out.

Very Good 8.0
Nice size room. Big bathroom, nice open shower. Clean. Nice selection of music. Inadequate lighting. Would have liked to use garden area for relaxing/eating breakfast, but mosquitos kept that from happening. Overall, good experience.

Feel the Sound of music...literally
My stay Franklin Feel the Sound was great. There were numerous eateries around and the metro was not too far way. The room was clean and the ambience to the room was nice.
