“Time to renovate!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 July 2012

A bit far from the town center and the Dali Museum - the only reason we were in Figueres - the hotel felt old and in bad need of a renovation. Even in 100 degrees weather, the sad pool at the front of the hotel could not tempt us. I recommend driving the short distance to the beautiful seaside town of Roses for dinner.

This is a good value for the money. Rooms are spacious and make you feel like you are in Spain. The pool was clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and spoke English well. We were given a room with two single beds, but asked to change rooms, that was no problem. The restaurant has an excellent lunch deal, three wonderful courses and includes a bottle of wine. The only draw back is that it is not as centrally located as some other hotels, but it is the closest hotel to the high speed train.

Room Tip: Don't miss the restaurant.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2012

We spent a night in Aug 2011 on our way from Barcelona. We found Hotel Trave a simple place, very suitable for spending the night but not really for spending time at the hotel or in the room (other than sleeping).

We walked around a bit, it's about 15-20 mins walk to city centre, located on a quiet street; didn't really find any restaurants in the area but did find a supermarket nearby (about 7 mins walk away).

We had drinks at the bar in the evening, slept ok and had a nice breakfast in the morning - this was what we were after too so overall it was a positive experience. One thing though: I'm not sure I would have wanted to stay here if I was alone - the place was very dark & quiet, bordering deserted and this I found somewhat strange and spooky even.

Positives:
- Finding the hotel was easy enough (we just followed the signs in the city)
- Parking area was very close, free and spacious
- Staff at check-in desk and bar were welcoming, if a little bored looking
- The place was surprisingly quiet
- Breakfast was good - nice selection of bread, fruits, eggs, coffee, tea, pastries etc.
- Free wi-fi in rooms worked well

Negatives:
- The place looked very dated and somewhat dark
- Rooms were very basic and had small flaws (ripped curtains in my room, the sink somewhat blocked but nothing too bad)
- We had some language problems - the helpful night staff at front desk and bar didn't really speak English
- Whilst the small pool was nice the water was very cold; also the pool was very deep (not really suitable for children)
- Although it was August the place looked deserted - I only saw staff members and an elderly couple staying there

We recently stayed here...initially staff were welcoming and room appeared adequate...after eating out in town we returned for a couple of drinks at the bar, bar man not at all helpfull or interested, we were only ones in the bar cafe area, also very expensive for game at pool table, which was basic eg not normal pool cues. It was not even midnight and we were asked to drink up as bar was closed. So Off to bed; to get sleepless night... the walls must have no sound proofing (paper thin), hearing every movement, noise etc etc from the adjacent room / occupant. Certainly not as anticipated.

Next night found we dicovered a really good Hostel, Hostel Barretina, just a few hundred yards from centre and was very good. Staff were excellent, friendly and very helpfull. A must if your looking for a room with en-suite and other facilities at reasonable prices

We spent a night at Hotel Trave en route from Barcelona to the Dordogne. It was a comfortable and restful stop. It was a short trek to each of the train stations, to the post office and to the Salvador Dali museum. Room, restaurant, computer connection and pool were all good. Staff were very kind and helpful.

Room Tip: We had a room with four single beds in the building across the street. Had AC and extra blanktes. Cl...

We liked the hotel as it was just far enough from the city centre and easy to drive to - could not fault the experience - we didnt have breakfast so couldnt comment on that but everything else first rate. Friendly helpful staff lovely room and great position would definately go back

We enjoyed our 2 night stay at this hotel very much.
We got a great family suite - 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 2 TVs [no balcony unfortunately] for a very reasonable price. Our rooms were clean, the air conditioning was great, the swimming pool was refreshing, the staff were friendly and helpful.
One night we ate outside at the bar patio and enjoyed a World cup soccer game. The food was fine and good value. We did have the breakfast buffet one morning - it was OK, nothing special.
We used the hotel as a base to explore the northern Costa Brava and visiting the Salvadore Dali museum of course, which is an easy 10-15 min walk away, as is the main town square, where there are several restaurants.
