We stayed here for 2 nights while touring around Switzerland. It is near the famous St. Gallen site and within minutes you can be enjoying the countryside. The hotel is a family business and they were welcoming and charming. We loved visiting with the owners and our son loved playing with their children too. The room was small but comfortable... More

Trains can bring you to most places in Switzerland. Having meetings in Konstanz, landing in Zürich, spending three nights in the same place... Well, it gives a lot of choice. This time I added a wish to visit some places I had never seen, St Gallen, the old abbey library and the exhibition of medieval law and legal manuscripts. I... More

The hotel is a family business, very friendly and helpful people. The breakfast has all the choices you would expect (from eggs to müesli, cheese and meat), especially if you consider the size of the place. The rooms are renovated in this old building, rather small, but comfy and, as expected for Switzerland, very clean. The next railway station is... More

We unfortunately only got to stay here for one night as we were passing through. This place is lovely - it is clean, the beds are comfortable and the staff are oh so kind. The breakfast was great, and it was so nice seeing the little boys following their mom around as she kept the place humming along. This place... More

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
