Located in the old town, adjacent to the library, we had everything within walking distance. Walked upto the three lakes in the morning. Helpful staff, good breakfast, clean rooms..... great place to be in. Would love to visit again.

This is a simple place, and one which I would return to. It has existed for centuries, originally as a merchants' and travelers' stop and also a place of shelter for the needy. Nowadays the profits are used to help suffering people. As to the...More

For those who like to be in the center of things, yet seek a quiet night's sleep: the charming Hotel Vadian and its Annex, the Dependance Pförtnerhof, are the right choice. The charming and affordable hotel lies More in the heart of the abbey district, just a few steps away from the world famous abbey library. Nearby cafés and restaurants lure the hungry and thirsty, while quaint city shops invite you for a shopping stroll. Those, who prefer a walk in nature, reach St.Gallen's green lung within a few minutes with the unique Mühleggbähnli. The hotel itself offers comfortable single and double rooms, as well as family rooms. Each room in the hotel is decorated individually in a modern and convenient way, yet with a touch of nostalgia. All rooms offer en suite bathrooms with shower/WC television and free internet. The hotel is open all year. The Hotel now offers its guest access to its courtyard patio - a quaint hideaway in midst the town center. Less
