Hotel Duran *** is a homely hotel of great tradition and fame, located at the core of Figueres, at just 100 meters from the Dalí Museum.
The upper floors of the hotel, excellently remodelled, display high-end interior finishes, more superior than expected from a hotel of its category. In these floors, there are distributed 65 bedrooms that are decorated with functional furniture of wooden design, elegant Dalí-inspired headboards, walls with warm tones and a pleasant illumination.
The ground floor shows a more classical atmosphere with hand-blown glass artisan lamps from Mallorca and polychrome Catalan chairs, the “Llevantinas”. Furthermore, in this floor, guests can also find original and unique spots which go back to 1855 such as El Celler de Ca la Teta, made out of stone and wood, and the popular restaurant of the hotel, a very good referent for those willing to know the cuisine of the region.
The Duran is an authentic hotel, faithful to its origins and perfect for a peaceful and unique escape. The well-known artist Dalí usually frequented the hotel so as to savour the meals of its prestigious restaurant. For this reason, the hotel exhibits numerous engravings and drawings devoted to the artist, and is also included inside the city’s Dalinian touristic circuit which tours the locations that are more closely related to the painter. Moreover, since 2016, guests are able to do their ticket reservation for the Dalí Museum directly from their room-booking engine. In fact, the hotel is the best location to start the “Dalinian Triangle.”
The bedrooms of Hotel Duran are decorated following the latest trends with wooden furniture and refined lines that create an elegant atmosphere.
Moreover, these bedrooms are also soundproof and contain modern equipment with Internet connection, a safety deposit box, satellite TV, telephone with direct line and a hair dryer. A number of them are also adapted for people with reduced mobility.
The bathrooms are spacious, luminous, with a comfortable and functional design, and fully equipped with a shower and a bathtub. In addition, the bedrooms have double beds, as well as adjustable air-conditioned and electric heating.
The elegant restaurant of the hotel, which was formerly frequented by the same Dalí, serves typical food from the region of l’Empordà. The hotel also has a bar service where guests can have drinks and snacks.
You can request a cot if you need it, but always on petition and with an additional fee of direct payment at the hotel.
The hotel also has its own car park situated very close to the building.
