Despite the plethora of no smoking signs, this place absolutely reeks of cigarette smoke, which makes for quite an unpleasant atmosphere. Centrally located, with parking available, the rooms are basic and the whole place quite dated. But it was reasonable for the price.

This hotel is a bit dated and not quite three star category in my opinion. It was clean and the bathroom and shower were adequate. The beds are equipped with old spring mattresses which were very uncomfortable. Thankfully we were only there for one night. The walls are paper thin and any noise in the corridor can easily be heard.... More

We stayed a few weeks ago for two nights and we couldn't sleep first night because of all kind of noises, like drums, buzz or shop-alarms that sounds far but loud. Hot dark small room next to elevator, also the bed was uncomfortable, too soft but with hard points at the middle. The bath was not clean as we expected... More

The hotel was easy to find and the reception staff very helpful. It is located near to bars and restaurants and had a secure underground car park. Unfortunately the beds were uncomfortable and rickety resulting in a poor nights sleep. The hotel although clean is in need of updating. Breakfast was very basic. WIFI was not available in rooms. Unfortunately... More

Stayed 2 nights in June, and agree with all recent comments 100%. We had been told we were in the old quarter - definitely NOT and noticed that there are many lovely places to stay in the old quarter . Our bathroom was so small, one had to site sideways on the toilet ,with knees touching the outside wall. we... More

The parking facility is ok. The staff spoke only Spanish, no city maps or other information was available. The rooms were very small and basic, no shampoo, soap etc. View from the window into a dark, narrow backyard. The breakfast buffet had a good selection. The location is central and it is easy to walk to the old town.

The really friendly receptionist didn't make up for this hotel's shortcomings. The room was too small to really accommodate us. The car park was a nightmare to get in and out of - a really tight turn and the lighting didn't stay on long enough to park properly. We had a room buried in the interior and it was dark... More

Despite the 'no smoking signs' this hotel smelled like an ashtray. The garage parking was outrageously expensive but luckily we scored a spot on the street not too far away. My advice, spend a bit more and go up to the touristy end of town where the sights are within walking distance. The room was typical, as in, tight. When... More

We stayed at the Francable for one night on a bike tour up to Cuenca. Wanting a cheap hotel with secure parking for the night and this didn't disappoint. Parking was in their underground car park, shared with other people but with special spaces allocated to the hotel. It cost I think 8 euros but with a Harley Davidson it... More
