The charming folks that run Gasthaus Hof and the adjoining restaurant are as gracious and unassuming as you could imagine. The rooms were spotless, the food was great - even though a little pricey - and the feeling was unhurried. Obviously the restaurant is a local favorite because it was full at almost every meal. The complementary breakfast was sumptuous... More

2 nights stay 7-2013. Quite agreeable and nice staff overall. Room clean and quality. Breakfast included was quite satisfactory. Super central location to everything in town - right next to main square. Enjoy. No rooms in Appenzell or St. Gallen that I stayed at offer any kind of floor stand fan or ceiling fan. For 30 SF to buy a... More

My husband and I stayed at this hotel four two nights. We ate dinner at the hotel both nights and enjoyed both cheesy meals. We appreciated that it seemed to be a favorite for the locals. The staff was very friendly. The rooms clean and quaint, but be careful if you're over 6 foot. The ceilings are very low in... More

We checked out every hotel in Appenzell and far preferred this to the more expensive, flasher places. Staff made us feel incredibly welcome - and even gave us a present when we left, even though we'd only been there one night. Beautiful view of mountains and roof tops from our room on top floor. Cosy, very popular restaurant with classic... More

Check in is in the restaurant. Walk in, when they come to seat you, tell them you are looking for a room. The staff was VERY helpful. They speak almost no English, and we speak no German, but it was not a problem. We stayed in a room for four people. It was good sized, with two single beds and... More

We stayed at the Gasthaus Hof for our first night of a 3 week trip in Switzerland. We drove here straight from downtown Zurich after picking up our rental car. The town is definitely the “quintessential Switzerland” and was very fun to see. To check in we went into the restaurant and the girl (really sweet) showed us our room... More

By Swiss standards, this hotel is a real bargain. Rooms are simple but cosy and clean, and the bathrooms have decent showers. There is some limited parking available. What made it memorable for us was the wonderful food and atmosphere in the restaurant (both at dinner and breakfast) and, in particular, the extraordinarily warm welcome we received from the restaurant...

We stayed 2 nights in a family room with 4 beds (room # 4 on the 1st floor, no elevator) at the Gasthaus Hof during the Landsgemeinde weekend (last Sunday in April). Hotels looking on the voting square were all booked when I called in January. The Gasthaus Hof is located right behind the Hotel Appenzell (which is facing Hotel... More

Spent a week staying here whilst working in St Gallen. St Gallen has a shortage of hotel beds but a large Conference Centre and cannot cope with the larger Conferences. So we moved out to Appenzell. The Hotel is all that one could wish for in a small Alpine village. it is the focal centre of village life during the... More
