We stayed recently and were a little intimidated that the location was so close to all the street noise. We walked through the gated wall into a secluded little paradise. The staff were all excellent., friendly, most spoke English and we enjoyed our 3 night stay. Our room was at the front with a terrace and in hindsight, we would... More

The hotel rooms, grounds, and front porch where breakfast is served are beautiful. The breakfast consisted of fresh juices, fruit, cereal, etc. Well done. Cordial & responsive staff. But I had to call the front desk 3 out of 4 nights because of the loud people on the terraza outside my room late at night. I stayed in the Folklorico... More

Villa San Francisco is right downtown, facing onto the Malecon. Although the hotel offers free parking, there is ample free (ignore the disabled parking meters) and secure street parking (there are civic surveillance cameras and plenty of Beat Cops). The hotel is beautiful and quiet with a charming ambiance. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The reception staff speak... More

Another woman friend and I decided to stay in this charming Villa instead of a friend's home. Glad we did. The service couldn't have been kinder. Right on the Malacon so we could walk to everything and if we needed a taxi the concierge ordered one for us right away. The only thing we were frustrated about was the cable... More

Every member of the staff behaved as if we were beloved members of the family. The service was excellent. Rooms are charming with a musical theme and breakfast was good and healthy, complementary, or you could order from the menu for a very reasonable addition. The manager was our taxi driver to the airport! He wanted to get feedback for... More

I was shocked at the price at first, but then I understood why it was expensive: it is kind of luxurious and elegant, with and antique touch and excellent beds.
