“Good value for money and very helpful staff”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

As with any review it is written as one has perceived the experience. Our experience for our one night stay was nothing but positive. Our room was large and had a balcony over the street, was clean and well presented. On arrival we were met with smiles and happy greetings. As we only spoke English, great effort was made to confirm our questions had been answered. The next day we booked out early and the Manager allowed us to store our bags at the Hotel as we were booked on a late train. This was no problem and when I came to pick them up he took them out to His car and offered to take us to the Train station! Lots of great art to look at on the walls. All in all I can recommend this place based on our experience.

We stayed at the Hotel Plaza inn for four nights from the 1st the to 5th of May 2013. We went to Figueres for a friend's wedding and this was one of the hotels that was recommended.

Positive aspects:
- Very unique with loads of different pictures etc. Very different and more fun than your normal hotel.
- Amazing terrace with views of the Dali museum and the rest of Figueres. It was my husband's birthday whilst we were there and we spoke to the staff to organise a breakfast up on the terrace and they were extremely helpful. Also I think there is a free bbq up there every saturday night during summer months.
- Good value for money, we paid 51 euros a night (without breakfast)
- Amazing location, literally 50 metres from the Dali museum and the main street.
- Friendly staff, also willing to help out.
- Parking was easy, just a bit further up the street (on the way up to the castel) you can park for free, saved us 40 euros for the hotel parking!

Negative aspects:
- The curtains in the room didn't cover the whole window so it was difficult to sleep in the mornings.
- Decor - loved the weirdness of the decor but i think they have gone a bit too far, if they took a few things down it could look a lot better!
- There were quite a few ants in the bathroom and some in the bed. Again pretty normal for this time of year but still.
- Very poor WIFI signal in rooms
- Strange built in alarm clock in the room kept going off at 6am and 7am and couldn't work out how to turn it off (possible more my problem than the hotels :o))
- No toilet brush, sounds petty but is kind of important!
- Chruch bells - not the hotel's fault but beware, the church bells in Figueras are so loud and go off what seemed to be every 15 minutes

It was great value for money and I would stay there again. However, it needs some work doing on it, with just a little bit of money it could be so much better!

Restaurants:
Whilst we were in Figueras we went to various restaurants and ate very well. Some to check out include:
- La Figuereta: (menu only in Catalan) very funcy restuarant with amazing food "fresh from the market". Our friends paid so i can´t comment on price but well worth a visit (book in advance)
- Nou Samboya: amazing tapas restaurant with the best squid I have eaten ever and I live in the south of spain!!! Also try the rosé satir wine, very nice. Food very reasonable although gets more pricey if you have some of their coctails. Best restaurant for us in Figueres.
- Granada vins: (part of the same company as Nou Samboya) again lovely tapas and wine, the restaurant itselfs nicer than Nour Samboya but the food in Samboya is slightly better!
- Pizzeria Il Capo: About 100 meters from the hotel and one of the best pizzas I have eaten in a long time and at a reasonable price!!

Other tips:
We used Figueres as a base to discover the nearby area and we saw some great places including:
- San Pedro de Rodas: Beautiful and well worth a visit
- Cadaqués: Lovely little village where dali's house is (book in advance for visit). Here we ate a a restaurant called Bamboo next to the beach area and it was great food with an asian twist.
- Girona: The historic centre is very nice but it seemed to have less atmosphere than the other places we visited.
- Besalú: amazing medieval village, this is a must. You only need one hour to look round. We stopped for lunch and went to the restaurant Pont Vell, which is located under the bridge and has spectacular views, although the food is pricier and not as tasty as other places we have eaten at.
- Ampurias: Romana and Greek ruins, not really my thing, but good if that's waht floats your boat.

Room Tip: There are rooms on the fourth floor that have balconies overlooking the Dalio museum, we saw them fr...

Booked 2 nights for a Dali weekend..
The Room was so tiny and had an overwhelming smell of oil, we asked if there was another room available that didnt smell and all we got offered was a can of air freshener, we asked if there was a bigger room we could pay for, no. The extra bed we ordered (requested for 3 adults) was a childs bed and all the beds were touching each other, even though we booked months ahead. The bathroom had no toiletries, not even 1 soap, again had to ask for these. The mini bar was empty. When we went to bed there was music we couldnt work out where from, finally discovered two speakers in the ceiling playing music, no switch to turn it off, the overnight receptionist spoke absolutely no english, you need to remove the door card so there is no electricity to make it turn off. There was no air conditioning, only heat. Luckily we could cope without either as you need room electricity for this, so to have the heat on you also need to listen to the music coming out of your ceiling all night. Also we couldnt charge our phones, cameras etc with no electricity. Beds were like sleeping on the ground, walls so thin you can hear everyone in their rooms and the hallway talking, walking, opening doors etc. wifi drops out all the time and you need the username and password each time it drops out or you leave the hotel. Overall a terrible experience we could not wait to be over, we cancelled our second night and went to Barcelona instead. This is trip advisors #2 hotel in Figueres.

Cool blend of kitsch and frivolity in a great location - lots of paintings in the starving-artist-quality genre. One minute from the Dali museum. Walls a tad too thin, got to hear neighbor say, "I know, I know. I'll have your money this week." at 5:30 a.m. Good wifi. Highly recommended.

If you like art and Dali you will like this hotel. The entire hotel is like an art musuem itself. We actually spent time looking at all the art and enjoying it for what it is, if you just breeze through and do not look at each piece individually you will miss the creativity in it all. It is not "tacky" as some of the reviews might state. The Hotel was very clean and the reception was friendly and outgoing. The Dali Museum is a 5 minute walk and from the top of the hotel you can see the Dali Museum in a different light, go up at night. The Wall painting in our room were not scary at all, unless you are afraid of flowers and well dali of course. For Figueres, a little shady itself, this is a must go.

We stayed one night in this hotel and the staff was very good: helpful, kind and welcoming. The first room we arrived was quite scary though due to the wall paintings, very Dali style with living dead people. We asked to change and the receptionist agreed and gave us another room in which we felt more comfortable to sleep. The room was comfortable with all expected services. The staff also advised us on good places to eat and go out as well as shopping. Situated right in the city center, easy and convenient for a good price.

We arrived in Figueres by train from Paris and got to the hotel by taxi. Were so excited as the hotel looked so interesting from the outside and as we walked into the reception area with all the weird art work and thought "this will be great". On speaking to the receptionist and producing our confirmed reservation number, we were told that there wasn't a room for us!!! We tried to speak to the manager, but he was unavailable and couldn't understand the situation as we had a definite confirmation. The receptionist could not get us a room and so we were put in a friend's car and driven to another hotel (The President) about 3 blocks away. A busy street and not nearly as nice as the Plaza Inn. The room was stiflingly hot and the air conditioning was non existent. We were so disappointed and would not recommend you take it for granted that if you have a confirmed booking at the Plaza Inn, that it is for real.
