The hotel was named after the Spalentor (historical gateway tower) which is just across the street. We got a spacious and clean room. We liked the balcony and the view of Spalentor. Unfortznately there was a bell tolling every 15 minutes, even during the night and I could not sleep until 2am. The hotel would require soundproof windows. The breakfast was really good. The staff was friendly and helpful.

Booked a one night stay prior to a river cruse. Both the cruise line and our airline cancelled our travel plans due to Covis-19. Our hotel reservation was pre-paid nin-refundable, but we were given a full refund. I can't thank them enough, and if we are able to do the planned Rhine river cruise in the future we will definitely stay at Hotel Spalentor.

Really great Hotel with outstandingly polite and professional staff! We got a free upgrade and the room was just gorgeous! Especially during times of Corona it was great to have a place to withdraw from public and rest and relax.
