This hotel was one of the best I visited in my two week tour of Switzerland. Friendly reception and lovely room. I was on an upper floor and was able to open the windows and it was lovely. Excellent breakfast and I wish I could have been there without the rain! Do not hesitate to book with this lovely hotel.... More

I cant say enough great things first of all of the excellent service here. The wonderful host at the front desk was the friendliest of all of my stays on my trip. She welcomed me, helped me with directions and recommendations and her English was impeccable! Very helpful for someone not speaking the language! The rooms are clean, big and... More

A wonderful little hotel in the charming town of Appenzell. Just a five minute walk from the train station, this hotel is perfectly situated in the town, close to the central square and the beer factory. Very friendly staff and very spacious and clean rooms. Bathrooms are large and two people can easilys share while preparing for a day of... More

The hotel and the staff were very nice. The breakfast was as well. The town was just ok. The surroundings, however, were beautiful. Worth an evening stopover on the way to some place else. Good internet. Parking a few minutes walk.

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
