Enjoyed our 3 night stay which then included the Appenzell card which included trains, busses, cable cars in area along with a host of many things. Owners were very nice and accommodating. Breakfast was bountiful and excellent. Breakfast was normally 8 to 10 however we had to catch an early morning train the morning we were leaving and we were... More

We loved Margrit and Kurt, the breakfast was delicious, the town adorable - but unfortunately we got barely a wink of sleep. The hotel is very close to a massive church with equally massive bells that go off about 3 times an hour (yes, even in the wee hours of the morning). In addition, there were concerts blasting a few... More

My stay was over the Thanksgiving week which is mostly off-season for hotels in Switzerland. As a result, I was the only guest for several nights, and the hostess was incredibly gracious and generous with my stay at the Traube. She responded to my booking inquiries quickly and was accommodating in every way. My room looked out over the main... More

We loved our two night stay at Hotel Garni Traube, in the center of old Appenzell. We stayed in the hotel's top floor apartment, a very large two bedroom unit with a balcony, kitchen, and a huge den. Since it was in the top floor, the roof made for some strange or low ceilings in places, especially in the shower.... More

We stayed here for 2 nights while I was on business in Heerbrugg - awesome room, restaurant is excellent for cheese fondue, staff was stellar, cannot beat the atmosphere. Town is quaint and cannot beat the overall setting. A must stay!

Hotel Traube is traditional, charming, and we can't understand why there aren't more glowing reviews on Trip Advisor. We arrived by train directly from Zurich (jet-lagged from our flight the previous evening) and very happy that we arranged to check-in an hour early. Our room at the back of the hotel was quiet, crisp clean, not large by US standards,... More

Hotel Traube has a lot to offer. If arriving by train, it's an easy five minute walk to the hotel, which is just off the main shopping street. Our room was simple but immaculately clean and comfortable. The bathroom was very nice, especially the shower. And the view from our room was charming--looking out over a miniature town square. Margrit,... More

We spent 3 very enjoyable nights staying at the Traube. We had a very comfortable room and the breakfast buffet was our best in Switzerland, including Bircher muesli, my favourite. The hosts and staff are very polite and helpful. Appenzell is a very interesting place to stay, with very good walking, and an excellent brewery whose beer you must sample.... More

Our room here was clean, but small with a low ceiling. My husband is 6'1'' and his head nearly touched, so if you are traveling with someone tall, might be a good idea to ask about that.  The wifi was free and the owner was very welcoming, but I thought the rate was a bit high.
