My kids and I went to the Appenzeller region of Switzerland twice this summer on two separate hiking holidays. The first time we just stumbled upon both the region and the hotel. What luck! Second trip we were sure to return and to book again at this hotel. First off - go to the Appenzell region. This is a different... More

The hotel has a great location on the main square and there are a number of good restaurants close by. The room was large and comfortable with a mini-bar and strong Wi-Fi. The breakfast room is a small room at the back of the cafe/restaurant and was a little cramped. There was a small selection of cold food (bread, cheeses,... More

Stayed here for one night, though I made a mistake in the reservation at busy times the owners were very helpful to sort everything out to make it work. We had a room with view to the Landsgemeindeplatz, though busy at night with some singing (didn't really bother).

The location of the hotel- pastry shop is very nice, right on the Landsgemeinde Platz. Might get a little noisy if your room gives onto the square. The rooms are comfortable and big enough. Nice bathroom. Curtains too thin for me as I like to sleep in total darkness...no real guess reception there. Nice breakfast but the service io slow,... More

A three-star hotel with very tasteful classical-style furnishing. The room is very clean and sleep is excellent on a comfortable mattress. The full range of toiletries that one would normally expect in hotels is missing, however. Thus guests should be prepared to bring most of their own.  Thumbs up to the F&B department for superb plating and meticulous serving at... More

Europeans know about the quaint village of AppenZell--I had been here 40 years ago and it is still charming.. Great hotel in all respects, nice shower and breakfast very helpful friendly staff. Outstanding location to stay a week as we did and do short day trips to Zurich, Luzern, St.Gallen, the Bodensee, rheinfalls. Do the ebenalp cable car. But stay... More

We had a great two-day stay at the Hotel Appenzell. The staff could not be friendlier. The rooms are spacious by Swiss standards, and they offer a wonderful breakfast with eggs made to order (you have to try the Appenzeller cheese!) The only downside is the fact that there is quite a bit of street noise with the windows open.... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the warm hospitality of the entire staff at Hotel Appenzell. We are thrilled that we took 4 days of our 5 week travels through Switzerland to come to Appenzell. The quaint shops, the exquisite church with its unique cemetery, the fresh air and the clean drinking water, the gentle green slopes of the ever-present... More

I returned to Hotel Appenzell for the fourth time in less than two years. My return was for strictly R and R reasons. I can't tell you how happy I was to walk through their doors. The staff, rooms and food are unique. Everything was superb, however the service is why I continually return. The Soutter family, in concert with... More

The hotel is centrally located, nice with all services you need, but no internet. Very friendly staff helping out with planning of snowshoe tour. But the highlight is the breakfast room: original wood paneling and furniture from 17th century. Amazing!
