Bottom line- PROS: Location and Price is Reasonable CONS: Noise level, Staff NEUTRAL OPINION: Leaving key with front desk every time you leave We stayed at this hotel after our group of five decided they couldn't spend another night in the hostel we originally booked. Since it was a last minute expense we were trying to keep the price as... More

We wanted to stay the week end in Barcelona, and found this hotel via the web. As it was situated on the Ramblas it suited us perfectly .The price was reasonable, the rooms were clean and had all the facillities needed and the booking and reception was direct and easy. Very helpful staff. All in all a pleasant experience. Would... More

For the price the location can't be beaten. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room though basic was clean and spacious. The only downside was because of it's very central location, it was a little noisy at night. Breakfast was ok, fresh croissants, fruit, cereal, fruit juice.....as much as you want. Good value, ideally located!!

Located at the Rambla very close to Plaza Real. If you are looking for location, this is a good hotel. But this is all. The reception people are not helpful at all, the room is small and the noise of the street can destroy your night. And no breakfast!!

The hotel is very centrical but the area and the square next to it are unsafe! Someone entrered in the hotel room and stole my staff (camera & computer)!!! Maybe they entered from the window or it was someone from inside the hotel!

Hotel Fornos biggest advantage is the l-o-c-a-t-i-o-n. Situtated 10 m. from the Rambla and 10 m. from the clasy and cool Plaza Real I wouldn't swith Fornos for another hotel. The interior of the room is a bit old, looks like from the 80's or so but who cares as long as you are in the middle of the action.... More

What are positive features? 1. Location in the very center of the city, you can easily reach port and Guell Palace by walking. There are many caffes around and small shops. Great flamenco show is given at the first floor in the same building (the entrance is from the side of the Roal Square) 2. Nice personnel. 3. Room cleaning... More

By any standards it's beyond me how this hotel got it's 2*. I've seen better hostels. My room was tiny - not more than 8 sq m. This room would served better for an emergency room resident on duty at the hospital. Bathroom - ugly, with somebody's hair all over the place. Noisy, even if the room wasn't overlooking the... More
