We could stay 2 days at the Hotel Weiden, of course a nice Hotel, but for Businesstrips not the best. Many oderly people are there for recreation and Wellness, the area Weiden is really nice if you look for absolute SILENCE. The rooms in first floor were very warm inside, due to the heated wellness below, so you have to... More

My wife and I headed off for a two day - recover from family Christmas - break. If you are expecting luxurious surroundings , sumptuous rooms you will be disappointed but if you want a classic swiss Kur Ort experience you will love it. The place is incredible clean and yes just a bit clinical. The spa is well appointed.... More

Imagine in your head, what images you think a cross between The Prisoner, a Dignitas Clinic and a sterile Heath Spa smelling of chlorine and light sulphur might conjure up in your head. Imagine the rooms, the ambience. Imagine your bedroom. And the sterility of it all. Even down to the staff. You have probably quite accurately imagined this place...... More

Stayed there for one night at the occasion of a good friend's wedding in a nearby top notch restaurant. First of all, you cannot drive up to the front desk because of some local market (they did not notably not think of raising their voice so that guests would be allowed to do so). This is totally unacceptable. My wife... More

Heiden is an Appenzeller hill town which was rebuilt in the Biedermeier style after the fire of 1838. Its white walls and red roofs seen against the Lake below are uniquely beautiful. The hotel's restaurant, lounge and northfacing rooms all have a panoramic view of a 25 mile stretch of this lake through windows that are always clean; the German... More

This is a wellness hotel, and therefore has unusual features such as crutch holders adjacent to most tables. Lots of people getting around on crutches. They have daily exercise programs posted in the elevator. Clearly skews old. I suspect that there is a mineral bath somewhere around, although I didn't see it myself. That said, it has exceptional views of... More
