This tiny hotel made us very welcome. The staff were friendly and although the rates were swiss prices, they cut us a good deal. The place if full of chintzy character and while it's tiny it's no smaller than everything else in town.. and in any case we spent all our time in the lavish sauna facilities downstairs.

From December to March open on weekend evenings (not Sunday). Great 3km romantic walk along the säntis in the snow following the lanterns which are placed on the side of the path and look lovely with the sunset as it dawns . At first, we could enjoy a delicious hot cup of punch which was placed in a self serve...

Our hotel, the 'Romantik Hotel Säntis', is located in the centre of Appenzell, so somebody else should profit from your review. Thank you and best regards Romantik Hotel Säntis Stefan A.

We went for drinks at the bar only but did not stay overnight or have a meal. We were very impressed with the selection of drinks offered, especially with the variety of Malt Whiskies.

We sat there for more than ten minutes without even getting the menus. Yes they were busy but four separate tables that arrived after we did were served so the wait staff simply don't look (properly). The one waitress acknowledged us three times smiled nicely and then nothing, while the other one simply seemed to only walk around cleaning things....

The Santis is not a mass produced hotel, it's evolved over many years and generations to be a fantastic combination of modernity while maintaining a typical Appenzell feeling. Service and knowledge is of the highest standard, the food is outstanding. I have visited Appenzell regularly for over 20 years now and the Santis remains a firm favourite of ours. PS...
