“Good hotel for a three star”
Reviewed November 26, 2013 via mobile

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.

Dear customer, sorry if the conversation with us of the lunch bill caused you bad impression.
We will not apply the appetizer price what was in the bill was the bread.
Thank you for expressing your opinion, the opinion of our customers is important to us and helps us to improve day by day. We appreciate your time and apologize again for the misunderstanding of the bill.

Enjoyed our stay here. We came in from Madrid by train-don't get a taxi!! One of the most expensive taxi journeys we had on our three week visit to this area of Spain. There is a bus which will only cost around 2 euros which stops really near the hotel. (we used it for our return to the station).
The hotel is interesting with lots of Dali related artwork. The room was of a good size and staff were approachable and friendly. We decided to have dinner at a local Basque style restaurant rather than eating in the hotel restaurant although I understand that the hotel restaurant food is very good.
Breakfast was good although the nespresso machines aren't to everyone's taste.
Very convenient for the amazing Dali museum.

Figueres is a lovely town and had a nice feel to it - this place is in the thick of the inner town, but behind the nondescript outer wall is a very modern and comfortable hotel with great staff. I highly recommend it.

The Dali museum is only a couple of hundred metres away and the hotel is surrounded by cafe and restaurant options that are worth considering - but a visit to the hotel's restaurant is a must. I was in surreal heaven eating delicious paella negra at a table that Dali himself may well have sat at - considering there is a framed signed sketch by him just next to me. The rest of the meal was also excellent and worth the price.

The public areas and rooms are surprisingly new and modern and the room was good, i.e. without any flaws worth mentioning.

Service was fantastic, I managed to get the booking wrong and the lady on reception was extremely helpful and managed to sort out a solution for me.

I only wish I'd been able to stay longer.

Old world charm, excellent service in both the hotel and the restaurant - the food was great and reasonably priced. The hotel is minutes from the main square but rooms are quiet. Reception and restaurant staff speak good English.

Had an amazing experience in this hotel. Is walking distance of the Dali museum, the toy museum as well as other attractions. It has an excellent restaurant with plenty friendly staff and fine cuisine. The room includes bufette breakfast. The decoration of the restaurant and the place itself is surronded by artistic vibe of Dali. Although the rooms were extremely clean I wish it had more artisty decoration as the rest of the hotel. But other than that I found it to be an excelent place to stay. I would definitely will stay there again.

We loved our stay at the hotel Duran. The location was great to the Dali museum and also to Castell de San Ferran if you don't mind a little bit of a walk. The room was clean, modern, and had excellent wifi. We also had a bonus of a terrace that was attached to our room and we were the only ones who could access it. The front desk staff was helpful and knowledgeable. Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel!

Met up with friends in Figueres and stayed one night at Hotel Duran. Great pick! The room was fine albeit small, the restaurant was excellent, and everyone from the parking attendant to the waiters and front desk staff were very friendly. This is the place if you are planning to visit Figueres.
