Have stayed here over the years and not as good as it used to be. Rooms and bathrooms, whilst clean, need to be updated. Rooms at front overlook railway track and tend to be noisy. Breakfast used to be superb, but now a lot less choice available. No more home made jams but standard supermarket stuff - a sign perhaps... More

We picked the Hotel Forni after searching TripAdvisor as we were looking for an overnight stop on the way from the Uk to the Italian Lakes. In particular we wanted a hotel on the Italian side of the St Gotthard Tunnel as we were travelling on a Sunday and thought there might be long delays on a Monday morning at... More

Stayed here by accident when the company I work for, the removal lorry broke down just outside on our way down to Italy. Opened up for us at 2am, was clean, comfortable and friendly! Amazingly beautiful place, I will return for a ski holiday, very tranquil! :)

I found the Hotel Forni by accident while driving to Italy and stayed 3 nights (1 going and 2 on the return), the owner was pleasant, the food enjoyable (he has a french chef that is incredible) and most enjoyable was the wine cellar filled with Swiss, french and Italian reds. They were very helpful in finding the right wines... More

Hotel Forni s a good hotel for travellers to Italy, but for most Europeans expensive, due to the high exchange rate of the Swiss Franc. The Swiss Italian kitchen is very good. The rooms are spacious, the staff is friendly and the location, nearby the Gotthard pass, is excellent. In the morning you can drive quickly through the tunnel, normally... More

If you want to get away from it all, like I did, this is the place! It is a small family run hotel in the Italian area of Switzerland at the foot of the Gottard Pass. It has a bar & restaurant that is very popular with the locals. The food was amazing & they had a extensive wine menu.... More

This was a stopover hotel on our trip back from Lake Como and although the room was small, smelled of smoke (non-smoking room) and was very dated, the dinner in the hotel restaurant more than made up for this. We had a delicious romantic meal in the hotel (which cost as much as the room) with a lovely carafe of... More

We booked a 4 persons room via swiss budget hotels website. When we arrived we found a clean, nice hotel with a friendly staff. We stayed in room 42... More

Our family of 4 just spent one night at Minotel Forni in room # 25. We loved the convenience: just a few steps from the Airolo train/bus station (departure point for hiking, skiing or sightseeing areas). The room is simple yet very comfortable, nicely arranged and clean. Staff is friendly. We also loved their wonderful, typical Swiss breakfast with delicious... More

We stayed at the Forni to begin a hiking trip through the Ticino region. It was the perfect beginning to a perfect trip. The hotel's rooms were sizeable by Swiss standards. They were decorated in a Swiss chalet motif and consequently were very quaint and cozy. The hotel's restaurant was excellent - it is upscale and attracted a lot of... More
