„CHÖND ZONIS“: ERLEBEN SIE PURER APPENZELLER CHARME Jahrhundertealte Strickwände und rustikale Riemenböden sind Zeugen der bewegten Geschichte des Hauses. Bereits im 18. Jahrhundert wurden im Bären Gäste empfangen. So befanden sich in der Vergangenheit im Bären unter anderem ein Spezereiladen, eine Poststelle, ein Sticksaal und auch eine Bäckerei. Heute verschmelzen Vergangenheit und Moderne zu einem spannenden Dialog. Zum komplett umgebauten 3-Stern-Superiore Boutique-Hotel gehören zwei Restaurants, Bar, Raucherlounge, Weinkeller, Seminarraum, Terrasse und 13 Hotelzimmer. Unser reichhaltiges Bären-Frühstück ist perfekt, um gestärkt und vital in den Tag zu starten. Möchten Sie als Familie im Bären übernachten? Unsere Doppelzimmer lassen sich problemlos zu einem Familienzimmer umfunktionieren, mit zusätzlichem Einzelbett und/oder Kinderreisebett.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

What a chef, Peter.
And the Schmitte is also highly recommended for wine and cigar lovers.
We are excited about the future with Huus Quell. An amazing project, probably unique in terms of sustainability, wellness and lifestyle.

Excellent boutique hotel, close to many hiking routes. Very good service and good quality breakfast with fresh seasonal fruit and cheese and ham from the region. Service was excellent, particularly Monica! Hotel was very clean, the rooms very nice and modern with good showers. We will be back.

The room, facing the road, was ok but quite small. And: we had the doubtful pleasure to follow the conversations of our room neighbors next door via the bathroom. And: there is quite some traffic even during the night. And: the church just across the street rings the bells every hour and salutes the new day with a special effort at 6:30 in the morning!? Calm? Forget it.

The tablet provided has a well organized content but was dusty to the point of us not really wanting to touch it. Overall cleanliness of the room could have been better. There are so many pillows and a huge neck roll on the bed: it is a challenge to store them somewhere in the room before one can go to sleep.

A definite highlight is the restaurant. Top quality food, perfect and pleasant service. Their wine menu consists of 76 (!!???) pages. Ok, it might please the Sommelier but is way over the top for normal connoisseurs like us. Less would be more.

Would we recommend a stay at the Bären to our friends? No.

We stayed for one night and we were very satisfied with our stay. The hotel is old and charming, yet thoroughly modern inside and tastefully done throughout. It's extremely close to the town of Appenzell and the amazing mountains of this under-appreciated region of north eastern Switzerland. The stylish husband and wife team who run this lovely establishment, couldn't have been nicer. They speak English fluently too. Our room was spotless and totally up to date in style and decor with excellent bedding and a gorgeous bathroom. They've got an incredible gourmet restaurant on site! Easy parking. 1 min walk to the train station. Gonten is a small village, but this hotel has all the sophistication of a hotel in Zurich or Lucerne, but with a very personal touch thanks to the wonderful owners and their excellent staff. Highly recommended!

We had an extremely satisfying stay at the hotel. The staff were always at hand to help. I found that the hotel had only 13 points by Gault Millau didn't reflect the standard of cooking in the restaurant, in my opinion it should had at least 15 points. The rooms were a bit small, but when one reflects that this is a historic building that has been recently renovated, one can only work with the place that was there beforehand.

A great experience!
Not cheap, but worth every penny!
You immediately feel like home, food and wines are superb, and there is a nice terrace where you can finish your bottle and smoke a cigar !
Just great, a "must"!
