Lydia is a great hostess and this B & B makes a visit to Appenzell even more enjoyable. We used 3 of the rooms which allowed us the apartment - this made it extra special. Good location... Although confirm what is the best stop to use if you come in by train... There is one stop right next to her... More

It is difficult to know where to start, such was the long list of positives from my 4 night-stay with Lydia and Emil. I booked a single room and ended with a spacious, cosy double bedroom with lots of storage space. The house is super friendly and I thoroughly enjoyed breakfast time with abundance of Appenzeller cheese, smoked meats, gorgeous... More

What a fabulous place! Our stay was memorable and our host was full of energy and did everything within her power to make us feel like her home was our home. Clean, comfortable and a delicious breakfast! Her son's restaurant was one of our dining highlights. If you find yourself in Appenzell be sure to stay at Lydia's.

On this trip we stayed at Lydia's two times for 3 nights total because it was convenient for us driving to Austria and on the return to Zurich airport. Not very convenient location if you don't have a car. Overall, the B&B was clean and neat and the breakfast she cooked herself was very ample and good -- served in... More

We have stayed with Lydia several times now and would certainly return. The house is very clean, the garden area is very nice with a honor bar for an evening glass of wine which viewing the mountains. Very close to the town of Appenzell and is located in the outskirts of town. We did not have any issue with the... More

Loved staying here at Haus Lydia. A great B&B with very friendly, helpful hosts. Very nice facilities and bedrooms, very comfortable to stay for a few days and relax. Close to downtown Appenzell (about 10-15 minutes walk depending on luggage), but not an issue as there is another train station less than 5 minutes away which took you right to... More

We just spent two nights at Lydia's haus...wish I had read all reviews! We were given the tiny little room (spotlessly clean) that faced a very busy highway instead of the rooms that face the moutains. We made our reservations months ago, never dreaming as advertised being a quiet country place, she would even have rooms facing a highway! Very... More
