The hotel is very good: big and nice rooms, beautiful design, good breakfasts, nice view to the church from the balcony, very big and comfortable double bed. The hotel is located in pedestrian area, near the main places and metro. The minor negative things: 1) washbasin was a bit jammed with some contamination, the hotel staff didn't fix it properly...

My daughter and I stayed in this hotel for five days then stayed for another night three weeks later to take our flight back from Madrid to the U.S. The hotel is located very conveniently close to two main metro stations- Opera and Sol. It is also walking distance to the Opera, Palacio Real, Plaza Mayor, the Prado, and Plaza... More

Had a lovely stay at this hotel with husband and 14 year old son. Got to say though room was tight squeeze for 3 with no real room to move around. Given we were only there to sleep didn't really bother us but may bother others. Breakfast was great with continental selection & bacon scrambled eggs and sausage on offer... More

Super location. Excellent breakfast. Great service. Only moan would be no tea coffee making facility! Definitely stay again and recommend to others. Modern bedroom, very comfortable. Taxi to airport very reasonable.

Rooms are small but charming and comfortable with updated bathrooms, and furniture. Location is fantastic close to historic areas and metro. Strongly recommend for a pleasant stay. Near good restaurants, coffee places and other attractions.

This hotel is in it's last stages of being completely rennovated and is a great surprise right off of a very central location in Madrid! The location is great and the rooms are modern, spacious, and clean! We had a triple room which had a king size (it's actually 2 smaller beds put together) and a seperate area with a... More

I have just arrived home after a 3 night stay at this amazing hotel. From the outside you're not too sure what to expect but as soon as you enter the building you get a bit of a wow factor. Rooms are a bit noisy. But you are in Central Madrid. What do you expect. Just take some ear plugs... More

I can't believe this is a budget hotel. The only thing "budget" about it might have been the breakfast,and that's only because they don't have a big selection of food. Just a nice selection of breads, meats, cheese and cereals. Our room was really nice and the location can't be beat, which is about two blocks from the Puerta del... More

The Hotel Francisco I is conveniently located right between Sol and Opera making it a great base to see the city, & assuming you don't have a gazillion suitcases, it's an easy walk from the metro station. Our room was in the part of the building which had just been renovated. For what we paid, I was blissfully shocked -... More
