“Good place to stay in St Gallen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2012

It is an efficient, no-nonsense hotel that offers a good price. As other people have mentioned, free internet (asks the staff for the password), good breakfast, short-walk (10 min) to the old city center and not far away from action (a popular bar is nearby, and a good brunch place, lokremise restaurant, built in an old locomotive shed, is within walking distance).

We stayed here in February 2012. The hotel is clean, typical Swiss (boring) decor but a very nice staff to help you out. The rooms are fairly spaceous as well.
The breakfast is very good with some awesome coffee! Parking is available in the back.
You are about one block from the old section so you have a walking distance to everything. Be sure to check out the cathedral and the monastery library, well worth the visit.

We stayed here for a couple of days when in town to watch Chile play Spain. It has everything you need. Good location, close to town and bus/train station. The service was friendly and helpful. The rooms were funky and spotlessly clean. If you are in town, I would give this Hotel serious consideration. The free Internet is also a plus. Oh and the breakfast was fine, the coffee was excellent.

Stayed there for one night on a bicycle tour. The staff couldn't be more pleasant. The room was rather small, but very clean with everything necessary. Very good breakfast. Try getting a room on the back if you prefer to sleep with open windows. The hotel is very close to the old town, which is really nice. We also had a very enjoyable dinner at the restaurant Zeughaus close to the Convent.

For the value, we could not have stayed at a nicer hotel in St. Gallen. Only a short 10 minute walk (up a gradual, slight hill) through a narrow alleyway from the train station, this hotel sits in a predominantly residential neighborhood with a bunch of small shops/restaurnats lining one side of the street (hotel side) and apartment (lofts) buildings with office/retail (in newly renovated buildings) on the lower floors across the street. Within 15 minutes, you can be down in old town. There are 2 type of rooms at Hotel City Weissenstein: standard and apartment. Due to 3 of us in my party, we opted for an "apartment" which suited our needs PERFECTLY. The apartment consisted of an entry hall area (10 feet by 10 feet) with a bathroom and 2 spacious bedrooms (each with a queen bed!) off of that entry. For an additional fee, there is also a kitchen off of the same entry hall which they keep locked but looked ideal if you planned on staying for an extended period. The included breakfast was GREAT and served in the reception area on the main level (even with champagne on weekends). The staff working in reception were EXTREMELY helpful and very professional, making any guest feel very welcomed and having a great knowledge of local sights and restaurants. Even the cleaning staff were always friendly greeting us each morning on our way to breakfast. This hotel is very clean, updated with a modern flare, yet still warm and inviting. I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone and plan on making a repeat visit in the future.

Spent four nights there for a conference. The staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. The breakfast selection was great and healthy. This hotel is right in the center of town. If I ever return to St Gallen, I will definitively stay there. The rooms are small, but clean and with all amenities.

Been there many times in the past years. According to acceptable price/services ratio, probably best choice in sankt gallen (compared to at least two other hotel in same city also tested). services and clean rooms compensate small size of rooms.
