It started with a bad beginning in Pension Francia. I payed with PAYPAL in advance. After check-in, we were taken into a totally DARK(no windows and openings), HUMID, BAD SMELL, non-closet, non air-con, non-ventilation, SMALL room. I was lucky that my iPad was carried in hand and connected to the Internet with pension's free WIFI to declare my anger. Another evidence to show the bad service and training: I forgot to take my glasses after shower and left the glasses in the small public shared bathroom. The staff in charge of cleaning found it. But he/she didn't leave a note to remark the lost item to the next reception staff in duty and went back home to sleep. That means I was almost experiencing a blind sight seeing in the following whole day. By the way, the plumping of public bathroom is out of order, and the in-door faucet is leaking and noisy at night. Even the location is good. So what?!

OK but no the best value

Position, cleanliness and quiet.
5.7
This pension was typically very clean and in an excellent position but showed signs of wear and tear, it was disappointing to note that one towel had a number of wear holes, indicating it was very old and should have been tossed out long ago. Main issue was no elevator and we were given rooms on the fifth floor I counted 100 stairs to carry suitcases and daypacks. Wi-Fi was quite good. Not real excited about the shared toilet but it was clean. The reception is on the second floor and there is no signage to say that is so at the entrance, or to say ring the bell and wait for a reply, at first we thought we were too late to enter. Only one staff member spoke any English, no breakfast is served or available but a voucher for a restaurant around the corner gave 15% discount for breakfast or lunch, and the meals were very good and good value. I would not say it is good value but it is a supply and demand thing, meaning that due to limited options in this area the Pension will still get quests.

Ideal place to stay to enjoy the cultural area.

. Stairs a bit difficult if you have heavy baggage but in excellent location,we would stay here again.
Travel tip: Used door to door bus service from the airport,dropped us right by hotel.

Due to it's a old building , ones can hear loud plumbing sounds, while walking can hear noise from cracking tiles. I was in aroom with poor ventilation

Great location and friendly staff!

This was a great location in my opinion. Close to lots of great plazas as well as the beach. The room was quite small if you get a single. The double room with a balcony towards Rera Palau is great for a single person to stay in. The safe in the room is a great feature, and there was a sink in both of the room types I stayed in. It's nice to be able to wash up without having to go to the common bathroom.

Great location

Location was perfect

Location was in the Barrio Gotico. Perfect for sightseen and many restaurants around. Service is not the best but it is good enough for only sleeping.

Nice and Comfortable Hotel with great location

Location, Price, clean, nice rooms
6.7
pension francia was at a great location being only a few minutes walk from one of the main train stations estacio de francia so getting from the airport was easy. also its very close to barceloneta beach and metro station. our room was small but had everything we needed and more, double bed with a sink and a shower which i didn't expect to be included however not all rooms are like this. a fan and tv was also in the room but toilets were communal. the hotel resides within an apartment block so there are quite a few sets of stairs with no lift. towels are provided and changed every day as well as bed linen. note that you need to leave your keys with reception everytime you leave the hotel as its their policy, something we didnt realise until the second day, but this was no trouble. i would definitley recommend this hotel for anyone who wants an easy stay/somewhere just to sleep.
Krzysztof C. Couples Germany, April 6, 2012
Maybe the cheapest but still not worth the money

24h reception, free WiFi (although very slow and weak signal)
3.3
Non English-speaking staff, towels with holes and stains, the building is falling apart and the rooms are extremely small. The TV not working, doors/walls not really sound proof - you can hear everyone and they can hear you (most probably).

Francia Pensione hotel is a good solution for me this time because i wanted to stay in the center of Barcellona with short money. Very good and courtesy staff. You have to share bathroom.
