I spent two nights in this hotel. It is very clean and located right where you would say "This is Switzerland", but very close to ST. Gallen. People are nice and very friendly! Hope to come back soon!

We had a nice stay in this hotel during our trip to Switzerland. Located in a small village just outside of Saint-Gallen, it is a nice base to visit the region. The hotel might need a new coat of paint on the outside to give a better first impression but the rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. Hotel to... More

Stayed here two nights in what was probably a somewhat slack season, but loved it. The room was immaculate and charming. The attached dining room is comfortable and serves a great assortment of regional specialties: all of them good. However, it is the staff and the proprietors that really make the place special. It has a very friendly and warm... More

I've visited St Gallen twice. The first time I stayed in the city, the second time in this hotel. The great advantage of staying in the hotel is that you have some idea of the wonderful location of St Gallen, among the beautiful scenery of Appenzellerland. You can also park here and take the train into St Gallen (every 20... More

I stayed in the hotel 3 nights while attendin a conference in St. Gallen. The hotel is an old construction with old decor, small rooms and not too many updates. My room overlooked a school yard. The restaurant serves home style delicious meals and the staff were very friendly. In summary: has some potential but needs renovations.

My 77 year old mother with roots in the Appenzell region enjoyed a terrific stay at Hotel Appenzell. The rooms are well appointed with great marble bathrooms. Hotel has an authentic feel, with just enough comforts of home. The staff were AMAZING! They are helpful, knowledgeable, and make sure guests needs are met and expectations exceeded. The breakfast was delicious.... More

Friends have offered us a discovery voucher (Smartbox-tables&saveurs). Of all the places offered, my wife picked the Appenzellerhof, because of location, and cuisine. She was right, we railed it to St.Gallen, spent the afternoon shopping and visiting the city, then hopped on the regional train to Speicher, that itself was a great ride, scenic, smooth and fast (swiss style). The... More

We had a simple and clean room in the new part of the building. It was facing the main street but during that night there was not too much traffic. We enjoyed a great dinner and the next morning a breakfast with a hugh variation of bread, cheese and jam.

This gem located just a few miles from St Gallen was one of our best finds on our European holiday. If you like clean and fresh rooms with a very homey touch and great healthy and organic foods, then this is a place for you. This hotel was not inexpensive but wonderful with so many charming touches. It is small... More

Bad news first: if you are booking this hotel via the Internet, you may not realise it's on the main street. If your room is facing that way you'll need to keep the windows shut, so on a hot summer's night you'll either suffocate or have a sleepless night. The good news is that this is a spotlessly clean 3-star... More
