“Appears Worn & Mildew-like Smell”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2011

We stayed only one night in preparation for early AM flight. We would pay more to pay at a nearby 4 or 5 star hotel, which is closer to restaurants. Friendly staff and lack of personal allergies meant that one night stay was okay. Rooms were well equiped, although a bit small.

Room Tip: Other better hotels are nearer to area restaurants. I would pay more to stay elsewhere.

We stayed at this Hotel just one night. The location of the hotel was good, but that was the only thing about it that was good. The impression or the exterior of the building was different from the interior. The rooms were old and under kept. There were spots of water on the walls and the plaster was peeling off. the place was clean but didn't feel so.
For the price we paid we expected the place to look better.

If you really, really must stay in this dirty, depressing town, the Francia will give you a reasonably priced bed for the night, with air-con that works, even if you can't adjust it., and so long you can cope with the racket it makes. But that's about it. Reception and the corridors are clean, bright and glossy... but once in the bedrooms you'll realise that the whole place is in dire need of refurbishment (or demolition) (like most of the city); breakfast only serves to make you look forward to what you'll be fed on the bus or plane (the only good reasons I can thonk of for coming here). Beware the shiny tinted glass frontage shown prominently on the hotel's website; it is a mere facade, masking the real 1960s edifice. On the positive side, the staff were surprisingly helpful and polite.
