The Pensao Franca did not exactly make a good first impression. The ruby red and ebony dark hallway as well as the ever running tv and the woman at the reception who ignored us for a while did not make us feel very welcome.

Low clean system Pool service Worst condition ever. If I were you, I wont stay this place. Even though we should've stayed 2 days in a row, I checked out faster with left 1 day. Don't go if you want to be happy. Two stars hotel, I dont know what the heck of the meaning of hotel.
