The place is on the heart of the downtown, the staff is really nice people who treat you very well, the rooms are big and clean, the building is an old house so the rooms are too, the downside is they don't have accessible accommodations and don't have an elevator, the price is fair.

A quiet and clean hotel, close to all the historical buildings in the center of Campeche, close to many good restaurants, archaeological sites, etc. Great service, friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast. We also stayed here a few years ago and would again if we returned to Campeche.

Our travel agency in Mexico had booked a room for night at Francis Drake and after reading the negative comments here I was skeptical but it turned out be an awesome experience. The comments are from 2012 so I think probably the management changed after because we did not face any of the problems. We stayed during Christmas holidays in... More

The hotel is well-located, it's comfortable, it had all the amenities apart form the internet, breakfast was ok too. I agree with other reviews -the staff was NOT interested or helpful, too busy with facebook I suppose. It's good for a short stay.

Stayed at this hotel for three days, great location, the room and bathroom look great, indoor parking is available but for only three cars so you have to be lucky to park inside.
