This is very much a pot luck hotel and guest experiences are mixed based on whether they have rooms overlooking the harbour and which floor they are on. So if you are on a budget and want a central location in Horta then this might suit you but there are much better hotels than this so if your budget will...

The rooms are rather basic, the staff are off-hand and the breakfast is the worst that I have ever experienced. Poor compared to the other places I have stayed in the Azores. The only plus point is that it is in a central location

I stayed there for 2 nights while on vacation. The service is very nice, the parking is small but they can help park the car if needed. The breakfast is included and ok. The room is clean but very basic. But above all, the price is really good for the location! Walking distance from everything in the city! They only...

Whilst clean and reasonably welcoming the rooms with sea views can get very hot (very quickly!) in the mornings as they directly face the rising sun and the curtains struggle to keep the light out. Whilst the rooms may be acceptable the bathrooms could do with better (brighter) lighting as it was like showering in a dim cave and (if...

Nicely located, but too noisy all night because of an old road. Breakfast is poor and beds are quite basic. Receptionists don't talk many languages... It's a 2 stars hotel! I will not get there next time!

The rooms are clean and the bathrooms are modern but the beds are hard. Some rooms have a fan and a sea view. Breakfast is very basic; breadrolls, cheese, ham, jam -one day there was fruit! There is free wifi but very slow. The staff are friendly.

Reading other reviews, we were sceptical about returning to Residencial Sao Francisco after a 13 year absence. However, the property is charming, as are the staff. There was no bad smell, the bathroom was equipped to our satisfaction and there was always hot water. The breakfast was adequate and on a par with other hotels in the Azores. This is...

Very nicely located in the city center of Horta close to the marina - Rooms are OK but with no luxury at all - room fee is quite low so you get for what you pay - Beds are OK, bathroom has got the minimum equipment and breakfast is also minimal. Free WiFi in the lobby only. I would not...

I was extremely wary of having booked a room at Residencial Sao Francisco having read the reviews on tripadvisor but feel strongly that the majority are unjust and that some of the previous reviews are from travelers who misunderstand the type of service RSF is offering. This is not luxury accommodation but is clean, friendly, quiet and very central to...

This hotel is in an older building with basic rooms in the centre of town. The view looking out at the marina is lovely at dusk. Some rooms on the second floor have access onto a large shared patio with plastic chairs. My stay here was part of a group tour that coincided with the start of Sea Week. We...
