Hotel Francisco I, Madrid
Very Good8.0
Hotel was in a great location. Only problem was it is on a very busy noisy street. The air conditioning was turned off for the season and couldn't open the windows because of the noise. Very hard to sleep when the room is hot and stuffy.

Renovations undergo. Can be quite noisy during the day on some rooms. Not good for napping.

We would definitely go back!
We loved this hotel! It was clean and modern and in a great location. The service was superior. We checked in a early in the morning and didn’t expect our room to be ready, it wasn’t, but he said a slightly larger room was ready for only an extra 30 euro a night. Totally worth it. We had a big balcony and were able to go in and take a quick nap,before the day got started.

Best place to stay in Madrid!
This boutique hotel is one of the best we've been too. The location is within walking distance of almost everything you want to see in Madrid. It is very clean and staff are very friendly.

Hotel Francisco I, Madrid
A boutique hotel that impressed me
A boutique hotel that impressed me very much with its design, services and friendly staff. We have stayed in Francisco for 3 nights. It was a very comfortable stay. The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. Good location, close to everywhere we wanted to go. Special thanks to Emilio for his kind help and responses before our trip.
