Although atmosphere and staff were very friendly and helpful, the hotel itself was a big disappointment. Tiny tiny room, very noisy (on a square with bus station in the middle of town), no extras (no gym, Wifi at a cost, no eggs at breakfast) and overpriced. Convenient location opposite railway station.

Very nice service and good food at the restaurant O' Premier. I recently stayed at the Metropol during a conference at St. Gallen Business School. I choose Metropole because it was conveniently located and not expensive. Rooms are vert small but well equipped. The staff is very kind and tend to overserve you. You get more than you expected.

My partner and I chose the Metropol for its location next to the train station in St Gallen. The location didn't disappoint, with heavy double glazing blocking out much of the sound from what is almost always a busy station outside. The room was clean and spacious and offered great people watching! Two free drinks vouchers were presented to us... More

I stayed here in business for 4 nights to attend a conference. It has a great location centrally and easy to get to the convention centre on the tram here. All staff are very friendly on reception and in the restaurant and will do their best to make your stay a pleasant one. As we stayed for so long we... More

We visited St. Gallen over Easter 2013. The hotel is opposite the train and bus station so the room was very noisy if the window was open. There is no air conditioning so this could be a problem in hot weather. The hotel and room were spotless and comfortable. The restaurant was closed due to Easter and we hadn't been... More

Metropol hotel is just across from the train station, therefore, it is excellent considering the location. However, the hotel is very expensive, comparing to the Best Western which is just a few steps away. Due to various reasons, I and two kids (12 and 13) stayed in Best Western for one night and five nights at Metropol. I compared the... More

There is nothing fancy here but all the basics are taken care of very well. The front door is just across the street from the train station. The rooms are small but comfortable. The staff are very helpful and will cheerfully solve any problem. The restaurant offers a nice buffet breakfast and also has specials at dinner for hotel guests.

This is a business hotel, so it is priced accordingly. The service I think is scanty: they are slightly understaffed which does not say anything about the people themselves: they are kind and helpful. The rooms are comfy and the view from the balcony is EXCELLENT! The REAL clincher is the location: Close to the train station and on the... More

Situated just opposite the main railway station of St Gallen, you definitely can't miss this hotel. That's not it for the excellent location, it's just a few minutes walk to the bustling city that was beautifully decorated for Christmas.. The hotel had cosy, clean rooms which felt really homely. The breakfast room was beautifully decorated with an nice view. It's... More

Good hotel, which I would rate four stars. We had a package from the Tourist office (including guided city walk and dinner at the excellent restaurant on the first floor) – good value for money. Parking 20 CHF per night in public parking garage (pay at hotel). The location is opposite the railway station, which makes the surroundings a little... More
