A great hotel even for only a one night stay. Lunch and breakfast bot excellent, although breakfast at 30CHF is pricey. However it's not often that you get honey from a honeycomb at the breakfast buffet. The rooms are well maintained and clean. The room design and layout is very functional. Negative points: In my room the toilet was very... More

Unfriendly, inflexible and a very lousy service. As mentioned by others the service of the reception has nothing to do with a 4 star rated hotel. ..no further comment necessary. However St. Gallen as a city is great to visit - a lot to see!

This situation needs to be explained : At first, I was supposed to go to St.Gallen alone on a business trip. I booked a single room at 190CHF on Hotels.com It was written on the description : king size double bed (for the single room.) A few days later, my boyfriend decided to accompany me. On Hotels.com, the room was... More

The hotel is always very clean no matter how many times you stayed there. This is really important to me. The quality of meals is very good. Plus, the hotel has a perfect location in St. Gallen. Service is good and staff are friendly.

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.
