Monasteries de San Francisco was the most perfect place to stay after the madness of Christmas and the New Year. Absolute tranquility in a fascinating and exquisitely beautiful hotel. Sadly, I was only there for four days on business but I fully intend coming back as soon as I can. A good place to recharge your batteries. Very sorry to... More

We stayed as part of a larger group of VBT bike touring.. Large rooms, monastery grounds nice, limited seating around pool, this town doesn't have much to see and was a biking location for the tour..beds nice, breakfast good, dark bar area with not much life to it, but again, you can't compare to chain hotels, a nice experience

This is a historical monastery and as such it has rather simple looking rooms. I was worried that the beds would not be comfortable but I was wrong. Our room was clean and spacious. The whole place was fun to explore. We had a lovely dinner there that was very good. I really enjoyed staying here.

We stayed here at the beginning of our cycling trip through Andalusia. This huge old monastery has thick walls and echoing cloisters. All of our rooms were located on an upper hallway. We had trepidations when we saw our narrow doorway, partially enclosed in a niche at the end of the hall. Once inside, though, we were pleased. A small... More

We stayed one night at this hotel on our way from and to Seville and Cordoba. The building itself is nice but it could do with a bit better maintainance; especially the gardens and pool area. It's tranquil and I slept really well. However the bedroom was a bit run down and smelly. Marvellous bathroom though; although I wouldn't recommend... More

We stayed at Monasterio de San Francisco for 2 nights in July. It is ideally located between Seville & Cordoba and is an easy drive or train ride between these 2 cities. It is important to understand that this hotel is based in a converted monastery so it is a large rambling building has loads of character and charm but... More

The Hotel Monasterio de San Francisco is located in Palma del Rio; roughly halfway between Seville and Cordoba and perhaps a little way off the regular tourist track, but well worth the visit. It was our intention to visit Castillo del Almodovar the following day and then continue on to Cordoba, so Palma del Rio provided a natural break point... More

Very large, comfortable, updated guest rooms set in a historic monastery. Onsite dining facilities with well-prepared offerings. Good Wi-Fi in guest rooms and common areas. There were a significant number of stairs, and I didn't notice an elevator/lift. We handled our luggage on our own since we were physically able to do so and we had not seen any bellmen.... More
