Great basic hotel with an absolutely fantastic location. If you need total quiet and crash early this might not be your cup of tea. Otherwise you are right in the middle of one of the worlds great streets Pretty much a seven day a week nonstop party. Rooms are clean, inexpensive for Barcelona. Also a decent free breakfast from 8-10.

This hotel is located on La Rambla, unless your a light sleeper it is not for you. However the rooms are clean, staff are friendly. There is good Wifi, plus luggage scales & printing access. Access to metro and many other tourist places throughout city is excellent.

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

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

Staying in La Rambla

Neighborhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-meter boulevard, and a major draw for visitors. During the day, La Rambla fills with pedestrians, some of which stroll past impressive human statues and artists while others take a break to people-watch while enjoying a drink at one of the many terraces. Housed here is the iconic Boqueria Market that offers one of the most varied and appetizing selections of local produce and specialty meats and treats. While it’s important for tourists to keep an eye on their belongings at all times, this area is most safely explored in the daytime and is a must see for everyone who visits.
