The hotel is clean and the staff friendly and helpful. If you're coming from the main train station, the bus (nr. 3) takes 5 minutes and stops right near the hotel. However, if you aren't in St. Gallen to go to a trade fair or other event at the Olma fair grounds (I was doing just that), there are better... More

The ladies on the reception are extremely friendly and helpull. Breakfast is simple yet healthy and fresh. Eventhough the decoration in the bedrooms is very outdated, the beds are quite comfortable. The hairdryer is extremely slow and it might be a problem during winter. There is an interesting feature in the room which is a trousers presser, that might be... More

Stayed two nights on a business trip. It's just across the road from the Radisson Blu, so easy to get directions. It's about a 15 min walk from the train station, but when you arrive by train it's easier to take a taxi - about 15Swiss Francs and 10 minutes - rather than try to figure out the rue. Maps... More

Stayed at the Gallo for 3 nights with my aunt. We were visiting St. Gallen, for its history of embroidery. Wonderful little town and wonderful hotel. Whenever we needed anything, be it a phone charger or a restaurant recommendation, the staff always came through and with a smile. And the breakfast was excellent. My only complaint would be that I... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this hotel. I was a little concerned that the quality would not be great as it was quite a bit cheaper than others in the are, but it is right next door to the Olma Messen exhibition halls which was where we needed to be. It is a 5 minute taxi ride from the... More

We stayed in St. Gallen for 2 nights as a point to visit northeast Switzerland. The Hotel Gallo was an excellent value - particularly compared to others in the city. Included in the rate was breakfast and internet - there is a small parking lot next to the hotel at an additional charge. The walk into the city was about... More

A 24 room hotel. Conveniently located for the old town. The bedroom was of reasonable size with good bathroom. WiFi everywhere in the hotel. Breakfast was OK, but not fantastic. All the staff, however, were very friendly and helpful.
