Italian Language/"hotel" vs "albergo"
Can you please tell me if there is any difference between the masculine invariable noun “hotel” and the masculine noun “albergo” to express “hotel” in Italy.
Are both of these words equally used?
Thank you very much. I really appreciate your help.
there is no difference between the masculine invariable noun “hotel”, which is nothing but the French noun "hôtel" without the circumflex, i.e. a sign (^) over a vowel, and the masculine Italian noun “albergo” which is just a building where you pay to have a room to sleep in, and where you can sometimes eat meals.
Both “hotel” and “albergo” are equally used in Italy, though “albergo” is an Italian noun, while “hotel” comes from French.
All the best,
