Guest reviews for Einstein St. Gallen

4 out of 5

Old, but elegant.

Pros: woodwork
Cons: Add air conditioning.
Location: Wonderful location to walk around and through this nice town. And available self-parking was close and easy.
Beautiful place, nice bar, nice buffet breakfast, as you would expect for the price. Only shortcoming was lack of air conditioning. We like a cool.cold room and even in October, had to open the window which let in street noise from nearby outside restaurant/bar. This was a minor and actually opening the window had the advantage of connecting with this small city.
