We stayed here for two nights in a very basic but very clean room. The room was the least expensive in the area but the restaurant prices were about the same as everywhere else, which is about half as much again as you would pay for the same meal in Germany or Austria. Breakfast was very basic on the first... More

The Gasthaus Hof is a relative bargain in Appenzell. They offer a clean comfortable (though sparsely furinshed) room at a relatively good price. It’s located around a 10 minute walk from the train station, just off the main town square. The breakfast, served in the charming main dining room, was more than adequate for our day of hiking. They offer... More

The husband and I were here for one night in early June. Comfy basic double room, decent bathroom. Both the in-house restaurant dishes and the included breakfast buffet were expansive and delicious! Central location not too far from the train station and good for general wandering; not too expensive; and the staff, while not much more fluent in English than... More

This seemed to be one of the better-value stays in lovely Appenzell, according to other reviews, and when we arrived we were not disappointed. The welcome was excellent, the rooms modern but in a homely style, pine-panelled; bathrooms and all equipment very good. The restaurant was always busy (a good sign, especially when there is a large proportion of locals)... More

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
