“Beautiful, special hotel.”
Reviewed August 25, 2011

AbouIt an hour out of Zurich is this renovated monastery. The attached church is still active and on Wed. night there is singing. It was hard to figure out where the registration/lobby was. I had a single room which turned out to be a double room facing south to the Alps. From my bed, through the windows I could see the Alps. All night long I heard the cow bells of the cows grazing around the hotel. No tv. No internet. No refrigerator. Clean, simple rooms with new baths. Meals are served downstairs in the basement in a beautiful room. You select the meat or vegetarian meal. Wine and beer is available. Breakfast is a buffet. All the food is really nice and fresh. Outside the hotel you can see where they are growing much of the food. It's a nice place to visit - lots of flowers, fruit and veggies.
From my bed I watched the sunset over the Alps to the sound of cow bells......very nice.

Reviewed October 2, 2009

I stayed at the Kloster Kappel for two nights. It's an old monastery and there is lots of history. There are rooms looking down the valley and other rooms facing the courtyard. The view down the valley is great but the bells of the cows keeps you from sleeping. The courtyard rooms are more convenient for that matter, very quiet with a romantic view.

The rooms are very small with only one bed and a table. There is no radio and no TV, so be prepared. There is a common room downstairs though, with a TV and games. The bathrooms are very modern and there is warm water.

The restaurant is in the cellar, a very impressive room. The food is good and there is plenty. The service personnel is in a hurry and not very friendly. There is another cellar with wine and beer and that is good fun to spend time drinking and talking in the evening.

The walls are very thick and there is no mobile phone coverage inside the building. Check-out is at 9am, that's very early.
