“Perfect location to view Dali”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

A well maintained 3 star hotel with a great restaurant. It may look a little grubby outside but inside is traditional and lovely. The Bedrooms are contemporary and spectacularly clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. We had a fabulous meal in the hotel restaurant and would highly recommend to other guests. A lovely quiet stay in a busy area. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: The internal rooms are a little dark as they overlook a small internal courtyard. This however was...

We located the hotel after a little bit of confusion, as the normal Renfe trains use the station on the east of the city but the high speed Aves (and the French TGV) use the station to the west.

Reception was very welcoming and helpful and our comfortable room was on the third floor overlooking an inner courtyard.

Hotel Duran is an older hotel that has been very tastefully modernised and is located in a quiet part of town, just five minutes from the Dali museum. Dali ate there a great deal and there are quite a few drawings and pictures concerning him around the hotel. The bedroom was welcoming and clean with a smart bathroom. The bed was very warm and comfortable.

Breakfast was a wide selection of cold buffet in the smart first floor breakfast room.

The hotel has a very relaxed atmosphere and we would definitely stay here again.

I recommend that you treat yourself to a meal in the fabulous 1850’s dining room.

Room Tip: Our quiet room was overlooking an inner courtyard away from the lift.

Figueras is a tiny town with a few lovely sights - the Dali Museum makes it worth it and the toy museum makes it good for kids. It may not be the place you need to stay overnight but if you do and are looking for somewhere to dine as well as sleep, this may be a good suggestion.

Rooms are clean and sparsely furnished, nothing exciting nor truly disappointing there. The dining is great in quality and service, albeit the room a bit dated. The old dining area, now a private annex for small groups, is THE place to have a lovely dinner with friends.

A good choice for travelers - with kids it's good too.

I booked a room through hotel.com for 2 adults and 1 child, and on my arrival at the hotel we were told that all of us have to share one double bed. We were told that if we want an extra bed we have to pay 50% more than our initial booking. No explanation whatsoever. The people at the reception were very rude initially. I asked to speak with the manager but access to her/him was not provided. I had to agree to pay for the extra bed, but because they couldn't put the extra bed in the room they moved us into a slightly bigger room just next to the restaurant without any windows. Terribly experience, stay away from this hotel!!

From Duran Hotel & Restaurant we really appreciate the time dedicated to let us know your opinion, we really regret to know that your stay was not entirely pleasant.

We would like to inform you that your booking was confirmed for a double room instead for a triple occupancy. There is no extra supplement with children sharing a double bed in the room. If an extra bed is requested, the room becomes a triple room with the corresponding supplement to be applied.

It is also true that the information showed in some online travel agencies, sometimes is not very clear. The translations are confusing and it may lead to a misunderstanding. That's why we always recommend to contact the hotel directly before booking, in order to avoid misunderstandings like this. We would like also to remark that all our rooms have windows or a balcony or a terrace.

We always look forward to satisfy the customer and make their stay enjoyable so we will update all the information showed in the different websites and avoid in the near future uncomfortable situations like this for both sides.

We regret once again the inconvenience that may have caused this misunderstanding.

Best regards,
The Management.

Central, very close to Dali museum. Friendly, helpful, efficient staff. Nothing too much trouble for them. Really felt at home. Clean rooms. Nice breakfast included. Watch out for taxi sharks - EUR12 for the shortest most expensive taxi ride ever! Recommend you just walk to hotel as probably about 20 minutes walk from station.

Room Tip: Rather take slow coach from Barcelona. High speed train not worth it. Walk or take a bus, do not use...

We stayed here over the September of 2013 and I completely forgot to write a review!! I wanted to note that this hotel was great. The atmosphere was so cool and I completely regretting not eating at their restaurant!! The room was for 3, a queen bed and a fold out couch. We all slept comfortably but the bed was a bit hard for my taste but not bad. Everything was clean and perfect in the room we didn't lack anything.

What I really want to mention is the staff. We were in a bit of a rush when we checked out but all went fine and we left. At about 4pm we got a call from the hotel asking if we had left anything in the hotel room like an electronic of some sort. I wracked my brain and went..."OMG my ipod!" I quickly described it and they confirmed that they had it and they'd hold it at the front desk for me (we hadn't left the city yet). I had left my ipod under my pillow in the hotel room. When the cleaning staff got around to our room they found it, alerted the concierge who then called us. They could have easily gotten away with stealing it and didn't. I was SO thankful. It is a special gift from my husband with an inscription on the back. So a million thanks to the cleaning and other staff members!!!

I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone. Also the location is fantastic, you can walk to pretty much anywhere you'd want to go and we had a fantastic time. Thanks!

Good location and atmosphere, parking a bit expensive. Tried the restaurant based on previous good review. Food was good but nothing spectacular. We were surprised to see the appetiser on the bill as we didn't order, assuming it was free when placed on our table. When we asked about it, all we got was an unfriendly sneer. This was a big disappointment. Otherwise the hotel might get a better score.
