Pros: The hotel was nice, staff was extremely friendly, bathrooms looked to be updated and nice. Cons: The hotel is hot and has no air conditioning. This might be fine for European travelers who are not used to AC but for me it made the room way to hot. I had read on TripAdvisor that they could supply a portable... More

I've stayed in the Einstein many times, but never in the economy room in summer. Don't do it! Despite the fact it claims to be a 4-star hotel, and the room cost ~US$300, there is no air conditioning -- zero zilch nada. Incredible but true. My room was 100F on arrival. Reception could hardly have been less helpful -- their... More

Dear „lyricskipper“ Thanks for the feedback following your recent stay at the Einstein St.Gallen. We sincerely apologize for not having met your expectation about offering central A/C in all our guest rooms. In fact, in most traditional Swiss hotels you seldom will find central A/C’s. With a maximum mean temperature in St.Gallen’s summer of 16 ̊ C (61 ̊ F)... More

We booked last minute not sure what to expect. Great hotel with large room, spotless and very friendly staff. The breakfast was fantastic so much choice. We were there for my husbands birthday and on leaving the hotel were presented with a bottle of fizz. Nice touch, especially since we had not told them. GREAT HOTEL; WOULD RECOMMEND.......

We were booked in the Junior Suite on the Ladies Floor for three (3) nights. The room is large enough to accommodate a sitting area. The beige and light yellow colour scheme is very pleasant set against rich wood panels. Just a couple of things that the hotel needs to address: 1. English fashion magazines should be provided 2. time... More

I stopped at the hotel for 7 days. The friendliness and hospitality of the hotel staff is amazing. Everybody was very kind and obliging. I was given a tea-kettle into the room at my request. The hotel location is superable: near the Cathedral and at the same time it takes some 20 minutes to go for a walk on the... More

We made a strategic stop going from Cortina D'ampezzo to Geneve. The city Is surprisingly amazing. The hotel Is a few steps from the Cathedral and from a street with plenty shops. The breakfast Is very good. Although the rooms need an update ( We stayed at the main building), they are very confortable.

Good bathroom. Room could be any hotel anywhere in the world. No coffee or tea in the room. Good white bed linen and towels. Slightly characterless. Food in the restaurant was of an excellent standard. A little Heston meets gorgonian style.

A beautiful hotel in a good location close to the centre of town. The rooms are spotlessly clean with great bathrooms. An excellent choice of hot and cold foods at breakfast and all the staff were friendly and helpful.
