Good Camino stop because of the location but nothing thrilling. Very eighties, a little tawdry but clean and welcoming. There is a restaurant downstairs but looks like breakfast only. Went around the corner for three euros.

Quiet and clean enough, but this facility was a bit dated. Staff was reserved, and we could never figure out if the on-site bar-restaurante was open or not. Right in the Plaza Mayor, the location was excellent for exploring the city of Villafranca.

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel - both times while walking the Camino de Santiago. We chose this hotel again for the location - right on the main square. As with our last stay, the hotel was good - clean, reasonably comfortable, nice staff.

San Francisco hotel is on the Plaza Mayor in a great location. You are 5-10 minutes from everything in town by foot. The rooms are very clean. The negatives are: no air conditioning, poor ventilation if you open the windows, and very noisy from the street scene in front of you. It is half the price of the parador hotel.... More

I slept here for one night doing the Camino de Santiago. The strong points are the spotlessly clean room, the location right on the main square of Villafranca (..no need to walk after having done 23 k) and the friendly reception. The WiFi signals are ok. However, the room I got was minuscule, and the price was a little more... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night while walking the Camino de Santiago. It is a basic hotel - listed as a 1 star hotel, so we didn't expect a lot in the way of service. Our room was basic and clean. The staff was welcoming. The location of the hotel is great - right on the square with... More

We are a pair of friends who are walking the Camino de Santiago. We arrived in Villa Franca and had the misfortune of staying in the San Fransico hotel. After they took our 56Euro (almost the most we have paid for a room in the past 3.5 weeks) we were shown to our room. Very old, very tierd. The lights... More

Basic but nice, clean accommodation on our walk across Spain. Handy to the square and the walk. Staff friendly and accommodating. Not fancy but it met our needs just fine. And the wifi worked in our room which is always nice.

Once you get past the fact that the hotel is dated (some fluorescent lights, bathroom that has seen better days, no lift) it's a great place to stay. Right on the main square I had a big room with a Juliette balcony. The room was immaculate, bed was great and the staff was friendly and most helpful. Free wifi.
