Hotel is a 5 min walk from the train station, it is in the middle of cute local shops and boutiques, the room is very clean; bed was comfy, I only wish wifi would've worked better. The owner is a very nice man who woke up early just to make sure I had breakfast as I said I needed to... More

This is a very nice hotel, located ideally in the center of the beautiful village of Appenzell. It can be reached within about 5 minutes from the railway station. Personnel is friendly and rooms very comfortable and their restaurant served good local food. The village of Appenzell is an absolute must; the village is a real "open air museum". Highly... More

We stayed at Hotel Lowen by accident and loved it. There was easy access with our bags. The elevators worked great for us. The rooms were appointed with furniture hand painted by a local artist. Very pretty. The bathroom is ready for an update, but is functional and almost modern. Our windows opened onto the main street of the pedestrian... More

I stayed in this hotel for two nights and have nothing but praise for it. The location is very central, the staff is friendly and the facilities are fine for this type of hotel. Even the rates are acceptable, but then everything is relative in Switzerland. The restaurant on the first floor is typically Appenzell and serves a large variety... More

We stayed at Hotel Lowen for two nights. The owners\managers attend to your every request with kindness. They speak limited but functional English. The breakfast they serve is top notch. The rooms are clean. Good views, private parking, nice outdoor patio. The beds are typical European style with great down comforters. The Hotel is situated downtown and may be somewhat... More

Room was bright and clean, staff was friendly, breakfast was good. Bathroom dated, but very clean, with shower. Our room faced the back of the building which was nice and quiet. Our friends had a room facing the front on the little pedestrian street. It was Saturday night and quite loud with revelers coming and going until 4am.

We stayed at Hotel Lowen for three nights in july 2010. We arrived in Appenzell by train all the way from Tirano, Italy and were warmly welcommed by the staff. A big bonus was the Appenzeller-card that we received for staying in Appenzell for more than three days. We made well use of the card and tried among others the... More

Hotel Lowen is a two minute walk from the train station. It is in the heart of the old town on Hauptgasse, lined with shops, cute cafes (like Blumen Barbara), delicious fondue restaurants (Adlerkeller) and 20 minute walk along the river to the Wellness Centre where you can steam, sauna, swim, plunge, and relax. The staff at Lowen are friendly... More
