“Excellent price for what you get”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2013

I only had lunch in the Restaurant, but it was a good experience. It is very well located, in the city center of the St-Gallen and the price for the lunch was very cheap. You have a small pasta buffet, where you can take everything you want in your plate.

The service was very kind and the premises were clean and refurbished. It is without any doubt a choice to keep in mind if you go to St Gallen.

Thanks that you took the time to asses our restaurant. The pasta buffet we offer every Saturday. From Monday to Friday you will find a variety of cold and hot food on our buffet. But even then you can select a plate size and fill it as you wish.
We hope to welcome you soon again. Best wishes.

We stayed there for one night arriving with the train and only minimal luggage. The location is absolutely central and we did all our sight-seeing and shopping on foot. Even the university is only a 20 minutes stroll away.
The room is well designed, well insulated against noise and the beds are comfortable. The personnel is friendly and includes handicapped employees. The breakfast buffet is okay and plentiful.

We stayed for two nights in September.

Very nice central location in the Historic Old Town and close to the Abbey, Library and Textile Museum.
However it is a 7-10 minute walk from the train station so be mindful of that if you have heavy luggage in hand.

The staff was very friendly. We had arrived early and our room was not yet ready. We left our bags with the reception staff and went off for lunch. When we returned, they had taken our bags to our room upstairs and we noticed that each bag was neatly tagged with our name. Nice!

Our room was nicely furnished, everything felt nice and new, and most importantly, the beds were comfortable. The shared bathroom and toilet on the floor were very clean.

One point to note, especially if you like to keep the windows open at night, is that there is a bar and restaurant just across the street. We were there on Friday and Saturday nights. Our room was on the 4th floor on the street side and we were disturbed by the noise well into the early morning! Closing the windows definitely helped muffle the noise but if you are a light sleeper, be sure to request a room which is not facing the street.

Also, it rained on Saturday and the sound of draining/dripping water went on all night long!

Their breakfast spread is pretty good. The staff is attentive and pleasant.

All in all, we had a pleasant stay there despite the small inconveniences which were not really the hotel's fault.

We would recommend Hotel Dom.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street side!

Dear CautiousTraveller
Thank you for your detailed feedback. Yes, with heavy luggage in the hands can also be a short walk indefinitely...we belive that.
We offer also room on the courtyard. Upon to request we book you gladly next time a room on the courtyard side.

Hope to see you again

We stayed at this hotel on two different ocassions, just one night each time. Location is very good but there is no parking for hotel guests, so one has to leave the car in one of the city garages, which is not the most convenient. There has been a lot of renovation work done on neighbouring buildings, so it was quite noisy both times we stayed here. Since this place is rather expensive, we opted for a room with no bathroom the second time we had to overnight in St. Gallen - not very convenient, plus one gets to hear doors opening and closing all night long. But the overall impression is good, breakfast is ok, and the fact that one is in the very historic center makes up for most of other problems.

The hotel is close to the center of St Gallen with many restaurants in the proximity. The room is not very big but well designed. Confortable bed. My room was on the street side and the day I was there, as from 7.00 AM people were cleaning the street and generated a lot of noice (bad luck??). Breakfast is okay but nothing special. Total price for the night was CHF 145.
I would probably try again.

Dear Andre D

Thank you for your feedback. The hotel is located very central and is also very close to the railway station. The Hotel Dom is placed on a side street in the middle of the old town. For a city hotel, the hotel Dom is placed pretty quiet. So we are sorry, that you felt bothered by the noise, during your stay. We also offer single rooms to the courtyard side, which we would reserve you for the next time.

For the breakfast buffet we have chosen deliberately a limited offer. We are very conscious of high quality and also that we offer mainly regional products.

It would be a pleasure to welcome you again at the Hotel Dom.

We are spending our second night of six at Hotel Dom and already love it! It was one of several area accommodations suggested in conjunction with a conference I am attending. [NOTE: This is a combined business/personal trip with my spouse.] Between the hotel's website and Google maps, I determined the Dom's location to be just perfect--in a (mostly) pedestrian zone, near the rail station, and in a more historic part of the city. The hotel itself is of contemporary design, however, and "something different." Picking hotel rooms from the web is tricky, but in this case, my hunch paid off!

Since we arrived early on Sunday morning, before check-in, the staff took charge of our luggage, which left us free to begin exploring St. Gallen, checking out cafés/restaurants, and expanding our photo collection! In the afternoon we returned to settle into our room, which is in the "orange" hallway. All rooms have white modular interiors accented by the "theme color" displayed in each hallway.

The room is en suite, which is small, but comfortable and efficiently designed. Once I determined the shower had good water pressure and toasty hot water, I was "sold." The en suite door is a sliding panel of frosted glass, which transmits a wonderful glow when lit from behind.

Beds, fitted with very comfy duvets and feather pillows, helped us get rid of any lingering jet lag in short order. Our room, on the back side of the hotel, has a generous balcony with chairs and a small table. The balcony view is not spectacular, but the peace and quiet more than makes up for that! The only thing the room lacks is significant storage/hanging space. But we may travel with more than others, so that is a subjective assessment.

Breakfast, included, is a buffet with numerous options--cereals and grains, breads from local bakeries, cheeses and breakfast meats, juices, yogurt, fresh fruit and fruit juices. The coffee was wonderful--we like ours strong--and what we had this morning was just that!

Other amenities include guest access to Wi-Fi, TVs with some English-language channel options, in-room safes (a big plus in our book!), and room "tags" (electronic devices) also permit hotel entry after 10 PM. While I am traveling with my spouse on this trip, I often travel alone, so I am especially appreciative of security features. One other point--Hotel Dom participates in an employment initiative that offers jobs to persons with disabilities, allowing them to learn skills and be part of a productive team. That's just the sort of organization we like to support!

We would choose Hotel Dom again and would recommend it to friends without hesitation.

Room Tip: Balconys are on the back--not overly-picturesque views, but a quiet outdoor space to sit and read, w...
