The first night we stayed here, the room was large and airy. Just a warning, though: There is no privacy for the shower in this room. It's right out in the open for your partner to see you, so just be aware of that ahead of time. The second night we stayed, a few nights later, the room was much smaller and not as welcoming. The shower this time was enclosed in a very small water closet (the sink was separate, out in the sleeping area). The hotel is not in the most convenient location if you are visiting St. Gallen, but it's fairly close. The Zurich airport is about a 50-minute drive in the morning. The best part about the Sporting is the amazing breakfast in the morning: they offer a wide variety of breads, fresh fruits, cheeses, cereals, hot foods (eggs, bacon, sausage), juices, etc. One can really eat for almost the entire day just in the morning! The hotel staff were pleasant and extremely helpful. If I were back in Switzerland, I would definitely stay again. (We liked it so much after the first night we stayed there, we booked it again the night before we flew out of Zurich ...) The internet access is not free, so be prepared to pay for wireless. There is a mini-bar in the hallway that works on the trust system, though it's a little on the expensive side. Below the hotel is a restaurant / bar. I would have given it a five, except the location is really not that great.
