Karin Schläpfer answered my email inquiry and she was incredibly helpful and friendly. She greeted my husband and I when we showed up, took us to our room and answered our questions. The room was surprisingly large and well-appointed and the bathroom was clean and modern, with a separate tub and shower (a quick note that the tub was really... More

This is our favorite. The church bells are tough if you're up drinking Swiss beer at night, but hey; It's better than being at work! I think every time we've stayed there each room was different. The staff is very helpful, and the food is very good. I wish they cleaned US hotels the way they do over there. We've... More

Was there in July 2005 as a member of a company conference. Discreet hotel in quiet place with nice interior. Church bell ringing in the early morning. OK for two-three nights stay. Quite boring place for longer stay.

This hotel was lovely and Karen at the front desk couldn't have been more helpful. The town of Appenzell is a typical Swiss town from yesteryear. The views are fantastic and the people quite friendly. Our hotel room was large but the bathroom was the stunner. It was huge with a stall shower and then a full bathtub with shower... More

While the room was comfortable and quiet, the breakfast delicious, and the location amazing, we would return to the Hotel Hecht because of the customer service. My wife and I spent one night at in Appenzell prior to a hiking vacation. Unfortunately, our airline had lost our luggage. The staff at the hotel were incredibly kind with their time, calling...

My 2 yr old daughter and I stayed at this hotel for couple of nights. We got one of the larger rooms with a living area (few couches). There was enough space for her to 'run around' in the room to get some energy out! The staff at the reception and restaurant were very friendly and helpful with recommending restaurants,... More

Short walk from railway station. Super reception staff. Very pleasant and knowledgeable. Free Appenzeller Pass gives free access to loads of things; you need to see it to believe it. Lots of places of interest are all within an easy bus or train journey. Train journeys are an experience in themselves, very comfortable. Get to know what is around this... More

We loved everything about this hotel. It had friendly service, immaculately clean rooms, great breakfast, great location, and was very stylish as well. The comments about the bell tower from other reviewers is true, you will hear them when they go off (it didn't bother us). We liked it so much that we were going to change our plans and... More

Hotel Hecht is a lovely hotel in the idyllic Swiss village of Appenzell. The rooms are contemporary with quaint Swiss furnishings and special touches (our room had a large basket for carrying hay in the corner). The entire hotel is exceptionally clean and the staff are outstanding - very friendly and helpful. All seem to speak English and if they... More

Centrally located in the main pedestrian street of the old town. Newly renovated rooms, very nice and clean. Wonderful new and spacious showers, The front is really noisy with the church next to and the bells do not allow you a sound sleep.
