Not everything is perfect in the hotel Einstein in St.gallen, but your stay in this stylish conservative hotel is not the usual city hotel stay. For once you remember your hotel during your last business trip. I like very much the style of the hotel. You see and fee immediately that the owner of the house has sense for style. Which isn't extravagant but elegant/ decent.

This hotel is posh and well done! The SPA, which is a walk away inside from the hotel is a wonderful experience. The glass bottomed pool and hot/cold steam rooms are great. Take some swimming goggles and work out gear!
The breakfast is accross the road in a congress centre and the restruant is not the type to "grab" something in quickly. Food was excellent but you need to be hungry as limited menu and not inexpensive.
We would go back again and recommend it highly if you are staying for one or two nights as it is a treat. Walk into the old village and many great places to eat and shop. Fre drink at the hotel bar and all spa visits and breakfast included.
We spent a night at the Radisson as well in St. Gallen and while equally as clean and rooms just as comfortable the hotel experience was not the same caliber. Casino is attached to the Radisson if that is an attraction.

This is our 3rd time to st. Gallen but the 1st time to this hotel. It's perfectly situated, the rooms are a good size and comfortable, the bathroom also. The bar doesn't open until 5 and there is nowhere in the hotel to get a drink until then! No tea & coffee facilities. The breakfast is in a building opposite the hotel which is strange but the food is good. Bar food also good but the restaurant is exceptional, a must if you can. I used the sports facilities which were excellent. The only bad thing was the bill! They had many items on there that we had not had, nearly 400chf more! So do be careful, the problem was quickly rectified.

Dear Jodie R.

Thank you very much for your great feedback via Tripadvisor as well as Booking.com
We sincerely regret having charged you our bed and breakfast rate although you opted not to have breakfast during your entire stay. We truly apologise and are happy you noticed our mistake upon verification of your bill prior to departure.

Breakfast indeed is served either in the Caf E. Bistro or in the convenience of your guest room. By the way, our Caf E. Bistro opens daily from 6:15 a.m. to 5 p.m. and also serves all kind of beverages, light snacks and local dishes while our E. Bar-Pub as well as the Davidoff Cigar Lounge opens right at 5 p.m. until late night.

In order to enjoy a high quality Nespresso coffee and tea making facility in your guest room we recommend you stay at our superior business rooms or any room or suite on our newly introduced ladies’ floor. We sincerely apologise for not having informed you about those choices at the Einstein Hotel and hope you will enjoy them during your next visit in St.Gallen.
It is thanks to the feedback of guests like you that enables us to constantly improve our services and we are very grateful for this. We truly hope to be able to welcome you back to the Einstein St.Gallen in the very near future.

With best regards

Markus Kraus
General Manager

Me and 3 of my colleagues stayed at the hotel in Jan. of this year. The hotel was great- rooms nicely appointed and very comfortable beds! After a long flight from the USA and a ride up from Zurich the shower was absolutely fantastic. The staff there were extremely friendly and helpful and spoke great English. Only downside we only stayed there one night. They also have a great Pub there and we enjoyed the ambiance and service...the bar tender was great. We ate in the Einstein Congress right across the street and the same there...great service, friendly and good food. We all enjoyed our stay and highly recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the street, great view at night

I recently returned to the Einstein Hotel and was pleasantly surprised by the improvements made, both in the rooms as well as with the addition of the congress center and SPA next door. The rooms are now up to standard and the breakfast buffet is quite a treat. Unfortunately, I have not had the time to relax in the SPA, but will certainly return and test next time¨
