The hotel, SPA and swiming pool are so great. Through the swimming pool's floor (in glass) you will see trough to the above floor. It give a magic sensation. The ambiance and decor provides very relaxing possibility. In your room thanks to a pillow "menu" you can find the pillow that suits you. So I discover a new way to... More

Very nice town, quaint and with friendly people. The hotel is probably the best in the city. Very helpful and friendly staff. Good breakfast and bar. Nice large rooms. There is no AC in the rooms. Nice bathrooms. Very close to the center of town. Convenient parking in the hotel.

They provided 3 sets of toiletries, 1,for each of us daily. The air conditioning works, room extremely comfortable, breakfast is wonderful. Actually everything... More

Yes, this was a business trip. However, the staff was great-friendly, helpful. The rooms were comfortable, and a bit more--your own coffee machine, wonderful bathrooms (warmed floors!) were really lovely extra notes. It's close to the train station, although we took cabs (I recently recovered from a broken ankle). Not all taxi drivers are understanding of this. It's also at... More

The welcoming at the reception was extremely friendly and the room was of a high quality. The whole staff was polite and friendly. The breakfast was rich and of a great variety. I would definitely recommend people to stay in this hotel.

Very expensive hotel. But : free wifi, breakfast really nice and varied, fitness/spa outstanding (they have a partnership with a fitness nearby that you can use during your stay at the hotel). 10 min walk from the central train station, very quiet area.

For the price the hotel charges per night, the place offers nothing spectacular. It is quite difficult to think of something that makes the place stand out and warrant the hefty price tag. Breakfast was not inclusive, and finding a nice place in St. Gallen on a Sunday afternoon was nearly impossible. I would say the spa was great, with... More

Arriving at this hotel, a short 10-minute walk from the train station, you are struck by its attractive exterior. Service is excellent and the breakfast buffet is very good (nothing unique, but certainly much better than good). St. Gallen's is not big so location is not likely to be an issue for most hotels in the city, but the Einstein... More
