Lovely hotel, super friendly staff
The location is GREAT on the main road in Appenzell. The staff is super friendly and helpful in suggestion things to do. The breakfast was very good as well. The only to be aware of (which wasn't a negative for us) is the Church right across the street rings its bells until pretty late and again at 6:30 am. They are awesome bells, but very loud. That being said, my wife is a light sleeper and this didn't seem to bother her. It did wake me at 6:30 am however, but that's not a problem if your an early riser. Overall I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel. It's not the Ritz, but its super comfortable and quaint. I would definitely stay there again.

Breakfast was amazing, very attentive breakfast service. Other than the church bells the hotel very quiet and clean. Very well kept. Great location. General manager very accommodative, flew all night she allowed an early check-in put us in room away from the bells. Shower was great. Although didn't have a restaurant for dinner they had a sister hotel not far away with great food. Hecht gave us drink voucher for free drink to encourage us to go there. It was worth it. Good parking nearby. Very nice people wouldn't hesitate in staying there again.
