While I was staying here, I unfortunately became I’ll and had to go to hospital, leaving the rest of my group to go on without me. I felt very frightened and alone, however when I arrived back from the hospital, the staff put me to bed and then crept in every few hours to check on me. As soon as they saw I was awake, they brought me hearty soup to feed me. Honestly, they couldn’t have been kinder, they looked after me for a full week, till I was able to go on with my trip! It is weird when you’re sick overseas, not hearing your own language, not feeling able to explain just what is wrong. But with the staff at this hotel, there was no need to worry, they just looked after me as though I was a relative. I can’t recommend them more highly!

Very nice stay, the rooms were very clean , the location close to train, good customer service from staff including the staff that provided a wonderful breakfast each morning. The town of Appenzell is charming and worth a visit. We would definitely come back.

Staff could communicate in English, even tho I think I was the only non German speaker . Room , toilet and bathroom room : spotlessly clean. Asked for a foam pillow. Not a problem. A note ( not criticizing) , was unseasonably warm . No AC . Was a challenge. Nice breakfast buffet . All in all very pleasant.

We stayed one night at Hotel Hecht and it was good. The room was modern and well cleaned. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The breakfast was good but the breakfast room lacked atmosphere. The prices were a bit too high for the quality and overall experience.

This is a lovely little Rick Steves recommendation. Super clean rooms with modern amenities, yet still retains it’s classic charm. We had our car and found parking about 150m away, across from the brewery. Breakfast is the standard cold buffet with boiled eggs, but it’s ample. Appenzell is the perfect base for exploring the region by car. Just be warned if you stay at Hotel Hecht: there’s no air conditioning so, if you need to sleep with the windows open, the church bells ring hourly—all night—and then really get going around 0630.

Appenzell is a small village and for practical purposes, every hotel is in town center. Decent service, good room ( don’t know why I got upgraded with a separate bedroom and small sitting room, may be because I always book direct skipping all intermediaries). Standard breakfast. Be your own porter for luggages. Has a lift but still need some steps. Appenzell village is the place to stay if you are exploring Appenzell region. It is preferable than using St Gallen as a base. Public parking easily accessible one block away, free in weekend but pay during the week.

Staff very helpful and courteous. The room was nicely set out and very clean. Bed very comfortable. Breakfast was great. Close to station and in the heart of the main shopping area of Appenzell. Highly recommended and reasonably priced.

Very pleasant hotel in a charming alpine village. Hotel is situated by the church at the end of the main street and only a few minutes from the railway station. Very nice room (upgraded from a single) with a nice welcoming touch. Good buffet breakfast with selection of cheeses. Had a quiet room at the back and a great night's sleep.

The hotel, located near the city center, is conveniently located near parking, shopping and the train station. Our room was large and very comfortable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They serve a nice breakfast from 7-10 AM. Our only complaint was the church bells that went off at 6:30 for about 5 minutes. Great hotel, would highly recommend it.
