Mostly, but not always. Adjectives that quantify (numbers, the definite and indefinite articles, adjectives like some, many, few, none ) are placed before the noun. Descriptive adjectives usually follow the noun, but I think there are exceptions to that too.

bueno becomes buen when used before a masculine, singular noun as do many adjectives or quantifiers like segundo, primero, tercero, alguno, uno, etc.From one of our lessons in Learn Spanish:Hay un hotel bueno ....if you place the bueno before the masculine, singular noun, hotel, it becomes:Hay un buen hotel...(notice that it is un hotel; not uno hotel)

But aren't adjectives always used after the noun?

bueno becomes buen when used before a masculine, singular noun as do many adjectives or quantifiers like segundo, primero, tercero, alguno, uno, etc.

From one of our lessons in Learn Spanish:

Hay un hotel bueno ....

if you place the bueno before the masculine, singular noun, hotel, it becomes:

Hay un buen hotel...

(notice that it is un hotel; not uno hotel)
