The Swiss city of St. Gallen is primarily known for the extravagant beauty of its thousand-year-old abbey cathedral, and it’s right alongside the abbey in the center of town that the Einstein St. Gallen makes its home. Next to such a landmark, its charms can’t help but look somewhat subtle, but make no mistake — this is the finest hotel in town.
Rooms and suites are traditional and elegant, clad in marble, cherry wood, silk curtains and down duvets, with parquet floors or lamb’s-wool rugs, and though they’re classic in style they come equipped with all the present-day luxury-hotel necessities. In the Superior category, in the Junior Suites, as well as on the dedicated Ladies’ Floor — a welcome feature that’s not uncommon in this part of the world — you’ll also find docking stations and Nespresso machines.
They also take wellness seriously around here, and the Einstein Fitness Park offers spa treatments, massage, capacious fitness facilities, and a beautiful atrium pool. And for the other kind of restoration, you’ll have two restaurants and a bar at your disposal: the two-Michelin-star Einstein Gourmet, the more casual Bistro St. Gallen, and the elegant, English-style Einstein Bar, wherein you can relax properly at the Davidoff Cigar Lounge.
