  • The Frailes reopened in 2001 within a few steps of the old St Francis Monastery in what used to be the residence of Marquis Don Pedro Claudio Duquesne in the 19th century. The friar theme is maintained with both the décor and the uniforms of staff.  This is a quirky but popular place from which we have received good feedback. Some of the rooms can be a little musty and most do not have windows (which at least makes it mercifully quiet).

    Room description

    The roomy air-conditioned standard rooms with satellite TV and mini-bars are so comfortable that you forget they do not have any windows. The 4 attractive mini suites have balconies overlooking Teniente Rey Street.

    Location:

    The hotel stands about one block from the Saint Francis of Assisi Square where you can get a taxi to just about anywhere you like to go.
