This hotel is amazing. Very considerate too. Booked a suite on the ladies floor. There are 3 of us. They made sure the spare bed was so comfy our travel companion couldn't bear to leave the bed. 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

The probably best hotel in St. Gallen: A wonderful blend of tradition, old atmosphere and solemn building and new comfort. The service has been very attentive and friendly. The room has been nicely furnished, clean - maybe some more space in our room could have been a plus. However, overlooking the rooftops of the old city and the monastery in... More

It really is a beautiful hotel, but seriously expensive. I suppose everything in St Gallen is expensive, but this is taking it to new heights. Breakfast was amazing. One good thing is that lots of stuff was complimentary. Free wifi, breakfast included, complimentary pressing service, free loan umbrellas. I suppose it counts for something!

Dear 1421X Many thanks for your open feedback. We do admit: Switzerland does not count to the low cost countries. But indeed, as you rightfully mentioned, we praise ourselves as a country with very high service standards and in spite of above-average prices, we believe we offer very good value for money.

A great hotel in the heart of the old city. Noble interiour with spacious, clean rooms, tastefully equipped, very quiet, free WLAN. Rich and beautifully arranged breakfast buffet. Conference rooms contemporarily equipped. Best hotel in town (prices accordingly)!
