200M from the end of the line Wasserraun station with the Alpenzeller alps behind it . quite and clean and a family run feel . with the road also being a dead-end (large free car park) not a lot of noise just the stream outside . Not cutting edge inside a tad old fashioned but its your alpine guest house... More

This was my second visit to the Gasthaus Alpenrose, as I particularly liked its location about 200 metres from Wasserauen railway station, the Ebenalp cablecar and its proximity to many walking trails in the Alpstein range. The pretty ornately painted houses and shops of Appenzell are only 12 minutes away by train, but it's worth noting that the train service... More

Nice and clean place, reasonably priced, especially accounting that there are not many hotels in the area, friendly stuff. Excellent breakfast. Located at the very last train stop which I found quite neat. Plenty of hiking and great views in the area

The Gasthaus Alpenrose is a few minutes walk from Wasserauen railway station where trains leave for Appenzell and Gossau at 18 and 48 minutes past the hour. There are also connections at Appenzell for St. Gallen. The Journey time from Zurich HB is just over two hours. The staff at the Alpenrose were particularly friendly, helpful, spoke excellent English and... More

After a very cold and rainy hike in the mountains we got a very warm welcome and got taken care of in the best possible way. The room was cosy and nice, but do not expect a modern hotel. The only real downside was the shared bathroom, which was super cold! The breakfast was great, lots of choices and beautifully... More

I didn't actually stay in the Alpenrose,however I did visit it regularly and found the family run hotel was very friendly and most hospitable. Real character to the place and I would reccommend it to anyone. I will be back hopefully in 2011.

After a merry mixup with booking our holiday (my fault entirely) we were left without a place to stay on a Saturday night in June! This place had a room (we needed a triple) and booked on the spot! Beautiful views, cows with cowbells on, train nearby, hiking galore (we didn't have enough time for that, just a lovely stroll),... More

We stayed overnight at the Gausthaus Alpenrose, arriving late in the evening. The owners were lovely and even made me a delicious cup of coffee laced with Bailey's. Much needed after a long drive through the Black Forest from Baden Baden (with a few stops for sightseeing on the way). Our rooms were very clean with comfortable beds and a... More
