        • Couple

          It was a real shame that the pool was not open and neither was the restaurant only the coffee shop. The hotel lobby was being renovated so all in all I was a little disappointed,

          • Average rating
        • Older travelers

          Very nice and elegant hotel close to the city center. Valet parking (charge) only. Spacious rooms, friendly staff.

          • Average rating
        • Single

          Certainly the nicest hotel in St Gallen.

          Unless you're traveling alone, don't get the economy room.

        • Family with children

          The hotel is nicely located. The staff is very friendly.

          It was hot in the room. The music in the bar downstairs was very loud, even when we closed the windows it was difficult to sleep.

        • Older travelers

          Fruit tray on each floor.

          However I wish management would provide free coffee in lobby in morning and /or coffee , tea brewer in room. I don't know why the hallway door giving access to elevators is locked at night.

          • Average rating
        • Group of friends

          The staff were very nice.

          However, we were not informed about the fact that breakfast was automatically booked for us. We haven't been given a map of the city either. Maybe there was some miscommunication due to the fact that we checked in early and we had to come back later and maybe the receptionist in the afternoon thought that the one in the morning had explained things to us. Very nice hotel otherwise.

        • Single

          Mostly the location, just off the city center and close to the railway station.

          The furniture and services were very basic, a bit less than four stars. The room awfully needed some refurbishment. My windows overlooked an ugly backyard building. All in all, this hotels deserves no more than three stars, with the price of 220 CHF/night it's extremely overprized, not value for money.
