This pleasant hotel is located near the center of Oaxaca. The exterior spaces of this spacious hotel, which includes several courtyards, are attractive and comfortable, especially the dining area (which serves an excellent breakfast). The setting is great, the price is reasonable and the (mostly) bi-lingual staff is friendly and helpful. One warning, however, the rooms facing the street are... More

I was there for a 4 days (business and social). The place has an excellent location. It is near the downtown area, with anything you need close by. The rooms are impeccably clean and the service cannot be better. Everyone in the staff is attentive and personal, helping out with anything you require. The amenities are a bit limited compared...

Service at the hotel is great. We arrived way before the 3pm checkin time with several large bags. They gave us a room right away. Bad news is, it faces one of the busiest streets in town, there is no A/C (it was hot), and the street traffic noise made it difficult to leave the doors open. We left the... More

The customer service is excellent. The buffet as breakfast is ok but I think it could be better. The rooms are ok, clean but they mostly not have windows so it is very dark inside. I didn´t like that they don´t have air conditioner in the rooms just ventilators and in summer is not nice. They don´t have king size... More

While freshly renovated, this place is NOISY. If sleep matters to you, stay away. The better rooms all face an open courtyard restaurant. Metal furniture over stone floors starts rattling at 630 am. The place is filled with students on tours who are being themselves, IE noisy until 3 am.

The room was absolutely nothing compared to the pictures shown on the Internet. It was dirty, old, extremely noisy, sub-par decorated. When we asked for hand towels, the hotel desk said the didn't manage any, nor any bath rugs. The bathroom sink cluttered at the first use, I even had help come inside the room to leave toilet paper while... More

This was the first hotel our taxidriver took us to when we arrived in Oaxaca early in the morning. We payed about 600 pesos for one night there, and it included breakfast. We would normally not have taken a hotel in that price range but we were exhausted from the trip and wanted to sleep. The service was great, location... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel Francia offers the best value in the market: we are clean, kind, cheap and well located. Hotel Francia is just one block from Zocalo and one block from the local market. We are right in the heart of Oaxaca city. Our building is a typical colonial Oaxac's style construction. And we have some experience in hospitality: Hotel Francia was opened in 1934. ... more   less
