This is an old hotel and I like old hotels. I stayed there for two days recovering from jetlag. I particularly liked the communal areas, although my room was very comfortable too. I found the service rather formal. Good location for sightseeing.

The hotel is in zona colonial, is safe, I was in room 103 and it was fantastic. The staff is great, thanks to Carlos, Gilberto, the ladies in the front desk and the rest of the staff. We will return and recommend this hotel to our friends and relatives.

I'm traveling with my girlfriend around Cuba, Dominican Rep and Turks and Caicos. This restaurant was the worst ever! Only manager speaking english, not knowing what wine recommend to our dishes. Tuna tatar was frozen, then defrosted in the microwave giving too much water and half baked/waved tuna meat (bleeee). Main dishes (lobster and grilled fish) were lower than restaurants... More

The hotel has a beautiful colonial architecture and is in a great location. Unfortunatly that's about the only excellent thing it has the rooms even though they are nicely decorated and bathroom are ok. The air in our room wasn't cooling enough, the bed was too noisy (horrible). The bar piña coladas $310.00 pesos each which was outrageous. And breakfast... More

If you looking for colonial charm on a budget, this is it. The Hotel Frances is located in the old section of the city just 2 blocks from the Cathedral. We found the restaurant with its courtyard to be very romantic with candles on each table. The service and food was very good but the staff is a little short... More
