 "Great location!"
Great location, the room was minimal but clean and comfortable. It was a little bit of a hike up all of the stairs to our room, but that's just something to be aware of. There wasn't air conditioning so it was a little warm, but between opening the windows and the small fan provided we made it work.

 "Basic room, good price, clean, noisy, stairs. restaurants"
Small and clean room, noisy (because other people talk loud in the corridor late at night),most basic room, good bed, restaurants nearby, a lot of stairs and no lift, for a good price.

 "Wouldn't recommend"
I wouldn't recommend really. It's very pricy for the sort of accomodation you get. The location is amazing, can't deny that and it's the only highlight of the stay.If you simply need a place to crash, that would do.. but nothing else, really.Wi-fi internet was good on the floor area, pretty week on the rooms though.

 "Good value for money-would stay again, if you dont mind the noise."
Pension Franca is a very simple but good place to stay when in barcelona. Its clean, and easygoing and the location is absolutely perfect, short walking distance to beach and las ramblas. If you dont mind noise then this is the place to be. It gets quite loud from the road (even though the window is not facing the main road). But if you need a cheap and easy stay, i couldnt fault it on anything. would definitely stay again.

 "Great location, very friendly"
Stayed at the Pension Francia for 8 nights and my only complaint would be the squeaky mattress which interrupted sleep. It's in a great location, within walking distance of the beach and las ramblas. Lack of a lift in the building is a bit annoying but not unmanageable with large suitcases. The staff don't speak a word of english but using a dictionary had no trouble communicating and they were very happy to help. Overall a nice little cheap hotel.

 "Barcelona week end"
Great week end in Barcelona, in a twin room. Very good location, in the centre of the Gothic barrio. A bit expansive for a simple room and quite noisy.

 "Great location and good service - but AWFUL sleep"
This pension is very nicely located in the Gottic area, close to cute shops and good restaurants. The staff was friendly and helpful. However if you value your sleep to much, this is not the place. The bed was the worst i've ever slept in, i would have preferred a sleeping bag and a mat. Thin, hard and incredibly squeaky.
