Our first impression upon check in was not great because we were placed on a smoking floor and a smoking room, so it smelled really bad. The A/C was not very strong so the room was musty, smelly, and rather warm. After the first night, however, we changed rooms to a non-smoking floor and it was much better. Our room... More

This was the 2nd time we have stayed at this hotel. Although it is not the type of hotel we would normally choose, there are a couple of things I really like about it. Firstly it is very conveniently located to a railway station on the JR Keiyo line that gives convenient access to Tokyo (40 mins); it is also... More

Awesome hotel in Chiba, right near the Bay with amazing views overlooking the ocean, close to the Marlins' Stadium, parks, shopping malls, and the Makuhari stations to get anywhere in Tokyo you want in no time. The staff is extremely nice and very helpful and while not all of them speak English the ones that do do so very well.... More

No language barrier with reception staff, speaks adequate english and willingly assist guest. Rooms are a bit small but for the price you can't go wrong fully equipped and comfortable. Went here for the tokyo game show lot's of restaurants around and convenience stores.

Chose to stay at Hotel Franc as I was looking for a hotel near Makuhari Messe for a concert. Location is superb and only about 10-15 mins walk to Makuhari Messe. 5 mins walk to Kaihinmakuhari station and lots of shops and restaurants all next to each other. I did not have to worry about the concert ending late because... More

This is my second time staying here to attend a conference at the Makuhari Messe nearby. The location is very convenient to the convention centre with only a 10min walk, and close to the Kaihinmakuhari station and a host of shops and restaurants around the station. The single rooms are very small but this time I got a twin room... More

Been travelling a lot with my husband, and stay in different hotels. I was really not happy when we were given a very small room at a very high price. I booked at Hotel Francs, thanks to RCI, which gave us this hotel for the reason that they dont have accredited hotels in Chiba. RCI charged us P24,000 for 4... More

The Hotel Francs is very convenient to the Makuhari Messe convention center in Chiba City. It's a short walk to shopping, a wide variety of restaurants and the train station. Rooms are small, but comfortable, and exceptionally clean and well-maintained. Our sole complaint is the lack of any sort of dresser in the room. A spacious closet was present, but... More
