Value for money. Very comfortable stay with extremely warm and helpful staff. Initial room air conditioning failed, we were immediately offered another room and even given the option to be relocated to another hotel nearby. Excellent service.

The room is very nice, clean and huge. Breakfast is very average but the central location is a bonus.

We have a good stay in the hotel. It's clean and comfortable enough. The breakfast is not that good but for the price we paid for the hotel, it's good enough.

All great apart from the fact that all the rooms face the street and people were partying every night until 7am. Breakfast was pretty basic.

We had a delightful time at the hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful and the hotel was very neat and clean. It is being renovated and will be very nice when completed. Some noise from the streets of Madrid, but air conditioner helped.

It's all about the location!”
Location, newly refurbished, free wifi
Booked the hotel a month before our stay, so got a cheap rate. Chose the hotel primarily for its location, which was perfect, right in the centre and with good transportation links. We requested a room on a high floor, but was given one on the 2nd floor, which made the room feel dark and lacked privacy from the street. Was also disappointed with the bed, as although we booked a double, the room had 2 single beds. Staff were helpful and friendly. I think it's accurate to class this as a 2-star hotel. We were lucky with the rate we paid, as 2 weeks later, it was selling for nearly double, which it isn't worth it.

we had such a pleasant stay at the hotel. The staff were all very helpful and friendly people. Agnes, their staff at the breakfast restaurant was very polite and helpful. She catered to all our needs. Aside from being a boutique hotel, this was very centrally located in all of madrid Arenal. Very near all attractions and restaurants. We would definitely come back to Francisco I Hotel.

Highly rated hotel which exceeded my expectations!”
(1) Centrally located,with shopping an metro nearby (2) Friendly and helpful staff (speak English) (3) Nice clean rooms at reasonable rates
We were very surprised at how nice the rooms were for the price. Can't beat the location (near SOL and Plaza Mayor) with restaurants (including Halal Muslim restaurants) and shopping in abundance. The OPERA metro from which you anywhere around Madrid is a stone's throw away and tour operators are in the vicinity, as well as must visit locations such as the Prado Museum. They call this Francisco Primero; primero it is and I'll be looking for the same during my next stay in Madrid. Hola!

Location, nice room, free and fast Internet
The location is absolutely great! It's along Calle del Arenal which is a pedestrian-only street full of restos, cafes, shops. Our room had a great view from the balcony. The modern theme is something to my liking. The staff are friendly as well. And the rates are competitive. I cant really say anything bad about this hotel. I highly recommend it. :)

Francisco I hotel is centrally located and provides easy access to tourist attractions. It is located on a busy shopping and food street. The standard room and toilet are of good size. The room is clean and bed sheets are changed daily. Internet speed is fast. The noise from the street is disturbing near mid night even though we are on level 5.

service, staff, location
I`ve chosen this hotel according to reviews, and I`m too disappointed. I totally disagree with reviews given(high scores)in internet . Rooms were too small,windows very narrow, old, bathroom needs renovation immediately. Very poor buffet breakfast and same every day. Staff was very friendly but hardly understood what we needed, lack of English speaking staff. Excellent location. Easy excess/ walking distance to all attractions.

The most perfect location to explore Madrid from”
perfect location, clean, friendly staff
I was one of the less lucky ones to get a non-renovated room on the 5th floor beside the staircase to the breakfast area. Or maybe it was actually renovated, but just not as fancy or modern as the other ones. That doesn't mean it was a bad room. Mine had a small window facing the street. It was a very clean room, even the paint and tiles look new. The only issues worth pointing out are the shower head (one of those old-fashioned ones that doesn't move, and it's located in the center of the tub), a horizontal line that seems to be stuck on the LCD TV, and the noise coming from the hallway, especially people climbing up and down the staircase to the 6th floor for breakfast. Other than that, the room was perfect for my two-night stay. The hotel is centrally located, easy to get to (I took the Renfe from the airport, got off at Puerta del Sol, then walked a few minutes down Arsenal), and the staff spoke English. The bed was decent, and pillows were fluffy yet firm enough to support my big head. I would totally stay here again.
