We stayed one night as part of a 4 countries/3 lakes cycle tour organised by Radweg & Reisen. The hotel is centrally located near the railway station and within easy walking distance of the main streets of this delightful Swiss town/city. The room had all the usual amenities, was clean and comfortable, the staff were friendly and helpful and the... More

The hotel is a small, family run 3 star property. The rooms are small, but well furnished and decorated with care. The hotel combines traditional with novel elements. There is a continental berakfast served in the first floor. While the hotel offers basic toiletries, you might want to take ear plugs with you, for its location is a loud neighborhood.

The hotel is located just across the street from the train station in St. Gallen. I arrived late at night, and had to go to an early meeting in the morning, so I was happy that I didn't have to spend a lot of time locating the hotel. The room was surprisingly large, and had a proper desk where I... More

This hotel is situated next to the bus station in a square which means that if you are a bad sleeper you will be constantly disturbed by the loud throbbing of the diesel buses constantly pulling up directly outside your window. This noise stops at about 12.45 am (this was on a Sunday night). Despite requesting a quiet room, as... More

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
