Historic Hotel Frances, Great location
Love Hotel Frances, location, history, funky atmosphere, bar in the lobby with traditional live music, price is right but this is not for everyone especially if you like modern updated places to stay. This is my second stay and would stay here again. Staff is helpful, I have no complaints

Hotel Frances, Guadalajara
The hotel by itself was beautiful (neoclassic style, half block from all attractions in downtown), but the rooms didn’t match the style. Through the thin walls and doors, you could hear everything going on outside and even what your neighbors were doing/talking. They also had double instead of queen beds. Since this hotel is located in downtown and is affordable, be ready to have loud neighbors. I called to report a people who were talking and playing loud music at 4am, and the reception didn’t do anything to make them be less loud. Also, the hotel hosts mariachis on Fridays, and they leave at 1am. Overall, excellent location and great prices. But if you’re traveling with family members, or you’re trying to rest or have good sleep, this is not a good choice.

The walls are extremely thin that I could hear our neighbors when they went to the restroom. The area around the hotel is gorgeous, though.

Valentines day with our friends.
We always take a group to Guadalajara every year and stay at the Francis we get suit #307 for about $65 usd. Very nice great location and this year it was Guads birthday on Valentines day weekend. The fireworks were unbelievable. La Fuerentes cantina is just 2 blocks down on Pino Suarez lots of action there. Horse and buggy rides were 200 pesos for 4 people. Fun Fun. Charles Bronson filmed one of his Death Wish films there.

Charming, Memorable. Great experiance.
Great fun staying in the heart of Guadalajara in a building built in 1610. If you like history you will love the experiance. Unfortunately the building needs repair but it was clean and servisable. The Mariachi music played in the open courtyard was excellent and could be heard in the whole building.
