We loved our two night stay at Hotel Garni Traube, in the center of old Appenzell. We stayed in the hotel's top floor apartment, a very large two bedroom unit with a balcony, kitchen, and a huge den. Since it was in the top floor, the roof made for some strange or low ceilings in places, especially in the shower.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while I was on business in Heerbrugg - awesome room, restaurant is excellent for cheese fondue, staff was stellar, cannot beat the atmosphere. Town is quaint and cannot beat the overall setting. A must stay!

Hotel Traube is traditional, charming, and we can't understand why there aren't more glowing reviews on Trip Advisor. We arrived by train directly from Zurich (jet-lagged from our flight the previous evening) and very happy that we arranged to check-in an hour early. Our room at the back of the hotel was quiet, crisp clean, not large by US standards,... More

Hotel Traube has a lot to offer. If arriving by train, it's an easy five minute walk to the hotel, which is just off the main shopping street. Our room was simple but immaculately clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very nice, especially the shower. And the view from our room was charming--looking out over a miniature town square.

We spent 3 very enjoyable nights staying at the Traube. We had a very comfortable room and the breakfast buffet was our best in Switzerland, including Bircher muesli, my favourite. The hosts and staff are very polite and helpful. Appenzell is a very interesting place to stay, with very good walking, and an excellent brewery whose beer you must sample.... More

Stayed here for 2 days, July 2013. Just a 5 minute walk from trains station in the center of town. Room was clean, modern, and very comfortable. Restaurant is only open for breakfast which is very good with fruit, cheeses, meats, breads and yogurt. It is included in the rental of the room. Wht makes this place so great is... More

Our room here was clean, but small with a low ceiling. My husband is 6'1'' and his head nearly touched, so if you are traveling with someone tall, might be a good idea to ask about that.  The wifi was free and the owner was very welcoming, but I thought the rate was a bit high.

This charming and authentic gasthaus is an easy walk from the train station in Appenzell. Quality is first-rate and there is attention to detail everywhere you look - from the spotlessly clean rooms to the furnishings and the woodwork. The staff was very friendly and they made us feel welcome (I noticed that one of the TA reviews for the... More

Having stayed in Appenzell previously we knew the food was excellent at the Traube when we returned. We were not disappointed, this is an excellent small hotel/restaurant in the heart of the village. Bedrooms are a bit small but no more so than similar hotels in Swiss villages. if you stay more than 3 days you get a large range... More

Perhaps it was bad luck or it was a bad day for the Traube, but our experience here was awful. The staff was shockingly rude on multiple occasions. I say shockingly, because this is not the Swiss way. Also we were overcharged, and when we politely pointed it out - there was no apology, but rather a snide and rude... More
