Stayed here for a night during a biking trip in Swiss and Italy. The staff were helpful; they accommodated us with storing all of our bikes. The breakfast was good, and the Lattes were amazing. overall a nice short stay.

This hotel was a complete surprise. I stayed there the night before walking the Gotthard Pass, I was really only looking for a bed and a decent breakfast. I had a large room in a style I can only qualify as retro. I've seen it a few times in Switzerland and it always cracks me up: the room is as... More

Having come claimed St Gottard pass in sunshine I checked in, last minute, at Forni. Great dinner, friendly staff and good room. Woke the following day tk filthy weather so decided to extend for another night. Spent the day in the bar / lobby chilling and using speedy WiFi for my blog. Perfect for my needs at a reasonable price

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
