Hostal San Francisco
Ranked #31 of 38 Speciality Lodging in Cadiz
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Walked into this hostal on April 18, 2014 at about 4.05 pm. Was tired after looking for a place to stay after a long walk. Was told by the guy at the reception that there are no room available. Understood. Then my boyfriend asked if he can use a bathroom and the guy said no. Sounds a bit inhuman. Wonder what the rest of the service is if you are refused a basic human need for a reason that it is clients only and they don't have any spare rooms... Don't think we looked dirty or homeless:) would avoid service like that at any cost.

Location of this hostal is really good. Cathedral is just around the corner and the beach is not far away. Room was really basic, but okay. (The even had a hairdryer). The bathroom was really small though. But overall I think I got the value of my money

Stayed one night. Double room with window opening to air vent which had a sewage smell, so could not be left opened. Air conditioning was not working well, fan at extreme low flow. Good hot water supply. Elevator not working.



Not worth the money, will not stay here again.

Smack in the historical center of beautiful Cádiz, this hostal offered a small, comfortable room, the service of a somewhat scary elevator and had congenial, helpful employees. It was clean and there was hot water.

We had agreed in advance that our bikes could be stored at Hostal San Francisco and were disappointed by the receptionist's reluctant attitude even when showing the written confirmation. The bedroom smelt musty and its only window looked out onto a closed dark central airway. The hostal IS well located - right in the centre of old Cadiz - and might be cheaper than other hotels in the area - but it's not a great experience. There's no breakfast in the hotel but lots of nearby options. We made a detour on our cycling holiday to go to Cadiz - and to be honest I'm not sure I'd go back. Jerez had much better hotels (e.g. Itaca) for the same price - and has lovely streets, bars & Sherry Bodegas to visit.

Although half of the hotel was under renovation, it still looked way better than some of the other hostels we saw. Probably because of the renovation, it was cheaper too! Staff was young and friendly. Room was small, with only one small electric heater. No breakfast in the hotel.

Stayed: January 2011, travelled as a couple
