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

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

The Santis was closed for building work so called on spec and was welcomed by the owners wife in a very busy Sunday lunchtime restaurant who found time to show us a spotlessly clean double room -No.5 and we really felt that we were wanted. An excellent meal in the restaurant in the evening and an excellent buffet breakfast next... More

We just returned from two weeks in Switzerland and our first stop was The Hotel Traube. The owners also run the excellent restaurant over which the rooms are located. Really nice people who are eager to please. The rooms were smaller but not tiny and extremely well appointed. Everything seemed new, modern and complete. We would definitely return to this... More
