 "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.

 "Very enjoyable stay"
Pros: Very enjoyable stay. friendly helpful staff. fairly easy to find. fabulous location right in the heart of the barrio gotico which we loved. small and basic but clean room. tiny but perfectly formed balcony overlooking the street with its bars and shops. pedestrianised side street off a busy main road. great old building with some original features. felt like we were experiencing a true reflection of barcelona living surrounded by locals not tourists. fresh towels and bed made,bin emptied daily. not spotless but clean enough. bed was comfy and bedding clean. working safe in room. the room was very inexpensive compared to other places in barcelona and as such was great value for money.
Cons: The pension does not occupy the whole building. there are 6 flights of stairs up to reception and our room was another 6 fights up after that. if you struggle with stairs, this place is not for you. the communal lounge tv does not work. there's a drinks and snack dispenser in there though. which you may need as there are no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. there is a sink in the room but no plug and cold water only. the shared nature of the building means that silence is demanded after 10pmmall you have to walk sideways at the foot of the bed to get past the wardrobe. the communal shower facilities were not clean enough for my liking but my partner was satisfied. no bathmats are provided so bring a flannel or something to stand on so you don't slip. was a hot powerful shower though. weirdly the room doors are extremely narrow . if you are a very large person you simply may not get through. yes there was a working tv in the room...but it only had one channel (a music channel)

 "Friendly girl at desk"
Pros: Friendly girl at desk
Cons: Instructions to get there useless.
no mention of 4 to 6 flights of stairs.
no soap or towel in the shared toilet , bathroom.
no blankets in our room,had to ask. tv did not work.the shower was left blocked by a person before.there was no plunger to unblock so i had to dress, go down two flights of stairs and they wernt surprised at the blocked shower. they grabbed a plunger and headed off to fix the problem. lucky they have rooms on several levels, so upstairs to get towel and then down again for shower.clients expected to mop after them but they left a sloppy mop in bucket and the young boys slopped it around, and there was no bathmat for the wet floor.
