“Decent, well located, quaint”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

A short walk away from St Gallen train station, Sorell Hotel City Weissenstein is well located, yet on a quiet neighborhood. The walk brings one past a few quiet streets, so it would be good to have directions printed.

The receptionist was very friendly, and settled me in nicely on a room on the third level. Room is smallish, but comfortable. The one negative is that it gets pretty warm during the night. Thoughtful of the hotel management to provide a fan.

Breakfast buffet is decent and the waitress is very attentive.

Wifi is free, housekeeping is efficient. I enjoyed my short 2 nights stay.

Room Tip: Ask for lower floors, as the higher rooms tend to get too warm.

Weissenstein is a nice hotel, but offers nothing special to differentiate from any other place. Staff is friendly but price is quite high, breakfast is basic and location is not special as you are a bit away from the main places (although within easy walking distance). Safe option for easy stay but nothing more.

Stayed here for two nights on Sep 2013. The room is not big, but enough, mainly considering that we went to the hotel just for rest and sleep.
Clean, well localised. The staff was very helpful and extremely friendly.
I definitely recommend!

We stayed here for 6 nights and would stay here again if visiting St Gallen.

Since we had no car it was important to us to stay at a hotel which was close to both the railway station and the city centre. Not only is the hotel within easy walking distance of both of these and is on a quiet side street and so away from the city centre noise.

The staff were all very welcoming and helpful.

Our room was on the top floor, which the lift doesn't reach, so we had to use the stairs for the last floor. This wasn't a problem for us but some travellers may wish to make sure they are on a floor served by the lift.

The room was fine, but wardrobe space was very limited, perhaps aimed more at people staying for one or two nights rather than a week. The curtains were light and thin - those who don't like the the morning light in their room might wish to sleep with a blindfold on.

Breakfast was a good buffet selection - we thought the croissants in particular were excellent. The fairly small dining area did get crowded when the hotel was full.

In summary, a good choice if you want a quiet hotel close to the centre of St Gallen.

Room Tip: The lift doesn't reach the top floor - if this is an issue for you check with the hotel when boo...

The location of the hotel is good for visiting the city. Breakfast is great and the staff is nice. The room was ok but I expected more for the price. The parking solution need to be improved. There are two rows of parking and the cars in the first row are blocked be the cars in the front row, so you have to leave your car keys at the front desk so they can move your car if needed. Plus there is a 10 francs charge per day for parking.

I stayed for three nights, the room was big but the floor was a bit dusty.
I stayed in the apartment rooms, that are bigger and cost a little more.
Walk distance from city center any the train station .

Had an unexpected surprise when we stayed here. We were given/upgraded to an apartment style room (the hotel owns the whole building which includes a side for service apartments). The room included a kitchen, a large bathroom, and a massive bedroom. Breakfast was simple and typical of a small boutique hotel (ex. continental european breakfast). The location was great, a 10 minute walk to the heart of St. Gallen and the train station.
