    The location is excellent, could benefit from more live music, only one night they had a guitarist, which played bossanova, excellent!

    They lack a spa and exercise room.

    Hotel Frances is a very tranquil, clean, and well cared for place to stay in the bustling colonial zone of Santo Domingo, just two short blocks from the touristy Calle El Conde. Because of the small size of Hotel Frances (only 19 rooms), the staff seemed to know and give personal attention to each and every guest. As a single female traveler, that attention made me feel very comfortable and safe…and I should add it was very professional, almost business-like attention (not the typical, almost-flirty attention typical of Dominican places). The gardens and room appointments really made the hotel feel like a respite from the city of Santo Domingo.

    As other reviewers mentioned, food & drink prices at Hotel Frances were high so I ate most of my meals elsewhere (and there were many, many places nearby to choose from!). I must say, though, everything I ordered from the hotel was of exceptional quality and presentation, which actually made it worth the price if you’re able to afford it.

    Very nice, historical property with only 19 rooms. Excellent restaurant and good service.

    On the edge of the Zona Colonial.

    The front desk people were terrible. I do not believe the french want american customers. Also the maintenance of the hotel was bad, needs painting, etc. also when checking out I had trouble receiving my voucher and also they said they could not confirm that I had prepaid.

    Fabulous

    Un hotel de type colonial complètement authentique. Un patio verdoyant et accueillant , comme tout le personnel d'ailleurs. Une expérience vraie et une nourriture de grande qualité accompagnėe d'un service impeccable et souriant! ( ils méritent chacun un bon ' tip' qui lui, n'est pas inclus dans l'addition finale) à recommander pour 1,2 ou 3 nuits à Santo Domingo.

    Une salle de bain propre mais un peu austère . Elle mériterait un peu plus de couleurs!
