“screams "CHEAP" but is actually perfectly adequate”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

from the moment you arrive, everything about this place shouts "CHEAP". a vending machine inside the front door, pay-per-minute computers in the lobby (even equipped with coin slots like a laundromat). On check in you are instantly shown a plastic wrapped promo of three breakfast formulas (coffee and pastry, 2,70e!) and a the promotional offer of a discounted tourist dinner at the restaurant up the street (you pay the hotel, they call and reserve.)

Your postage stamped sized room (at least ours was) had a cheap looking Ikea-style bed and was sparsely furnished to say the least. Best of all is the spring-loaded instant-charge mini bar in your postage stamp sized room with the admonition to not move anything or you will be charged 5e.

However, once you get past all those warning signs, this is a perfectly adequate hotel. The decoration is simple and modern but has been done to a rather high level with very good quality materials. The floors are all marble, the trim is stainless steel (even the cover for the cables for the television, which could have been white plastic were done in a custom steel cover.)

the beds were comfortable and once you closed the door on the front window the room was reasonably quiet (we were on the 1st floor facing the ramblas and so it was noisy with the window open.) That said if you can you might want to insist on a room on the back of the hotel.

all that said too, it wasn't cheap/inexpensive. We paid.... 61e for the first weekday night, 95e for the friday night, 156e total for two nights. and again, the online booking engines found no bargains. These Expedia rates could have been had by just showing up or calling.

Exceptionally clean room, good sized bed and more importantly, a bath to soothe away the aches and pains of a long days' drive.
Only stayed one night. Parking behind hotel @13 euros a night so in hindsight would maybe have parked on the street.

We only had 24 hours in Figueres and we booked the St Ferran Castle Pack. The staff were very helpful, understanding and organising the trip to fit in with our timetable. The hotel is very central, our immaculate room overlooked the famous Face of Dali memorial in the Rambla where there are restaurants and bars. It is only a few minutes walk to the Dali Museum. We enjoyed the trip around the castle enormously, the boat trip in the fresh water tanks was a highlight, there were very few other tourists and there's also a bar there to help soak up the atmosphere.
We accidentally left some clothes behind at the hotel and the staff went out of their way to help return them to us in England a couple of weeks later. Excellent service.
We traveled by train from Barcelona, the hotel's a pleasant walk from the station. Plenty of trains but don't forget to check which station you need to use in Barcelona.

We got off the train, caught taxi to centre of town then found this hotel. It's ideally situated for visit to Theatro Dali museum. Great staff were friendly and welcoming. Rooms are small as always in Europe budget hotels. Luggage must be opened on bed then put away but we are quite used to this. The large deck over the back street was a welcome surprise. As we were on the main street we didn't bother with hotel breakfast. We never use the mini bars either. They do a deal with a restaurant at the top of the plaza. The food there was shocking. Meal was cold on a raining night miserable. We then walked around the street behind it to find a fantastic restaurant where all the locals eat. It's opposite the tourism office. Perfecto. Be warned that you can hear every sound in the hallways and showering in the neighbouring room but then this is budget hotel in Europe.

Room Tip: We had room with balcony but I suspect rooms looking over Ramblas are bigger so do ask to look at th...

Been there with our kids. The hotel is located in the center of the city, walking distance to every where. The people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacios. The parking is tricky - the street is packed, the parking of the hotel is in near by building, very dense and limited.

I can only echo the comments of Marisa P in her review - we had the same experience in summer 2011 - an extremely rude male receptionist who seemed to be in cahoots with the cleaning staff who apparently reported drinks missing from the mini-bar for which we were then charged -even though we did not touch any of the drinks in the mini-bar! We had a very noisy room overlooking the end of the main square - do not be tempted to stay here at a weekend or during a festival, or if you do, request a room at the back without a view. Plus steep parking charges and a very, very tight entrance to the underground car park.
