We went for drinks at the bar only but did not stay overnight or have a meal. We were very impressed with the selection of drinks offered, especially with the variety of Malt Whiskies. Very cosy location which seems to be popular with locals. Very attentive, knowledgeable and friendly staff. With hindsight, we should have stayed for a meal -...

We Stayed here for a night in August this year. It's ideally located, just a short walk from the train station. The room was really quaint and cozy with a comfortable double bed. The bathroom too was a good size and had a bathtub+shower. The staff in the hotel are very friendly and helpful. We left our baggage safely with...

The hotel is superbly located, right in the center of the town overlooking the Landsgemeindeplatz (our rooms had windows overlooking the square). The rooms are large - with an adequate sitting area. The staff were very nice and helpful and the breakfast and restaurant were very good. We were very happy with our stay and would recommend the hotel to...

We sat there for more than ten minutes without even getting the menus. Yes they were busy but four separate tables that arrived after we did were served so the wait staff simply don't look (properly). The one waitress acknowledged us three times smiled nicely and then nothing, while the other one simply seemed to only walk around cleaning things....

The Santis is not a mass produced hotel, it's evolved over many years and generations to be a fantastic combination of modernity while maintaining a typical Appenzell feeling. Service and knowledge is of the highest standard, the food is outstanding. I have visited Appenzell regularly for over 20 years now and the Santis remains a firm favourite of ours. PS...

In the very centre of town a beautifully decorated room. Very high quality food in the restaurant. Quick and very efficient service. Prices a little on the high side but if one likes quality, good value. The staff is always very welcoming and the owner is always present to ensure the quality.

The Hotel Santis is a nice hotel located a 10min walk from the train station. The hotel room where we stayed 3 nights was spotless and the room was large enough.

Very good situation in the centre of Appenzell. Very lovely decoration. The room was spacious and very tasteful. Very nice restaurant with good food. The staff was very friendly. A little noisy in the evening due to the situation, but you cannot have all.

The hotel is beautiful, traditional Swiss, with really lovely staff. The rooms were immaculately clean, extremely spacious and well equipped. The bathrooms were definitely for couples - 2 sinks - as the "Romantik" name suggests. Extremely comfortable beds, food and the restaurant was delicious, and the wine list is one that only true collectors could really appreciate (bottles up to...
