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

The reception spoke almost no english, the breakfast was horrible. No fresh things, only 2 kinds of jelly and old sandwiches... Coffie you had to make yourself with a vending machine... The location was very loud and a lot of noice during the night.... it was till 5 AM till we could get some sleep.

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

Hotel Fornos is a clean, basic hotel on La Rambla. The location is brilliant. Drawbacks are it is noisy as La Rambla never sleeps! The hotel is missing a few nice touches eg hairdryer, tea/coffee making facilities. The beds are hard and the breakfast so so (but this is probably fairly typical). However, the staff are friendly, the rooms are... More
