The hotel is near the foot of le Ramblas. It is quite basic but very clean and the staff are very helpful. The breakfast is a basic continental breakfast but there is plenty. Croissants, ham, cheese, cereals and fresh fruit. It could be a bit noisy on le Ramblas especially on the Friday evening but if you are looking for...

Location wise this is ideal, right beside Plaza Reial. Room was booked (through Booking.com so got quite a handy deal) and ended up with a room overlooking La Rambla from 2 storeys up. Staff were very pleasant and helpful, understood my English better than I could understand their Spanish!! Only thing I would fault them on would be the breakfast...

A verry basic hotel, but exccelent situated (right in the midlle of the Rambla, very close to the Placa Real). Pretty clean, with small rooms and tiny bathrooms. The breakfast - verry, verry basic. For sure, was my first and last visit to the Fornos.

Stayed at this hotel for a week in September, and I was pretty disapointed. I picked it only because of its excellent location. The price, for sure, is to high for this kind of hotel (definitely, a basic one). Barcelona is my favorite city, for sure I come back, but I would definitely not stay here again!

Stayed at this hotel for a few days in September, and loved it. I picked it mostly because of its excellent location and price. It's definitely a basic hotel, but the beds were comfortable, the room was clean, and the breakfast was free. For the price, it was exactly what I expected, and the location worth every penny. It's a...

Stayed for 2 nights. I would've given 2 stars but the location is so good and was quite a bit cheaper than other hotels in the same area for our dates (€100 per night inc breakfast). The hotel is in need of a major revamp. The room was quite shabby, needed redecorating, new furniture, new bathroom fittings and a good...

Well what can I say or even start. Arrived Thursday morning in the early hours to be have a hostile greeting and the most horrendous customer service. The room was so basic, no fridge, no tea/coffee making, no iron/ironing board. Bed were comfy and pillows were ok. The rest look like it was stuck in the 70s. Bathroom needs redoing...

I loved this Hotel. I walked everywhere from here and felt safe. Noise wasn't bothersome at all (remember you chose a hotel in the heart of las ramblas so you can't fault the hotel for that). My room was always clean and towels were changed. I had a really cute balcony. My room was normal and basic but that's actually...

Stayed here for 2 nights before a cruise and couldn't of been happier! The room was nice, and the location was great. The room also included a small breakfast, which wasn't that bad either. If I was to return, I definitely would stay here. Very nice staff also.

Best location to see Barcelona between Rambla and Plaza Real. Rooms are large and most have balconies overlooking La Rambla. Clean, neat, comfortable hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. I will stay again.

Staying in La Rambla

Neighbourhood Profile
La Rambla
Barcelona's most famous street was once a dry riverbed. Now, La Rambla is a 1200-metre 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 appetising 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.
