“Amazing place to stay for a holiday!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

I came to Bohol for to celebrate the holidays and we were absolutely blown away by the kindness of the staff at Franzen. They were so amazing to us and we could not ask for more. Our holiday was definitely made easier by all the staff here.

The location is stellar. It is only a short, scenic walk from Alona beach and lots of restaurants. And the hotel itself is very clean and beautiful. You will not be disappointed if you stay here!

I must say Franzen surpassed my expectations. My wife and I were looking for a decent hotel not too far from the beach and not too close to it either. Initially, my wife and I decided to book three (3) days/nights in Franzen because of the serene atmosphere there. But we extended our stay for the rooms there were definitely better and more reasonable- in the sense of being more spacious and more equipped with furniture and fixtures- than the other hotels in the area especially if you look into consideration the price per night. Aside from the amenities that rooms in other hotels offer such as a flat-screen TV and a bathtub with hot and cold shower, what sets Franzen's room apart from other hotels is it's installation of a patio at the back of the rooms in the First floor. The patio resembles a personal dirty kitchen where one can cook meals (Each room in Franzen's first floor comes with an electrical stove) and do personal stuff such as washing his/her own laundry. Each room has a porch with a coffee table where one can simply lay back read a good book or enjoy the hotel's free Wi-Fi connection. The hotel really has a home feel to it.

In addition to those mentioned above, the owner and the staff were really friendly and nice.
I would definitely recommend this to soloists, couples, and friends who are looking for a comfortable place to stay and a place they can call Home as they temporarily reside i
