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 of excellent 'freebies' such as cablecars in the Summer. Excellent hospitality. Strongly recommended.
