I recently returned to Switzerland to visit Appenzell with two good friends. It was our first time to the wonderfully charming town, and the Hotel Hecht hosts could not have been more friendly and accommodating. We met Karen when we arrived, and she cheerfully welcomed us to the hotel, answered our various questions and shared great advice, and then showed...

...and the bells can keep you from sleeping if your room faces the wrong direction. Best ask for a room not I'm that direction... otherwise it's perfect, I really recommend it for a stay. The service is great also.

Centrally located, very friendly and helpful staff, tastefully decorated and large room, spotlessly clean, very nice breakfast buffet with local and seasonal products. Would definitely return to the hotel.

We had been to Appenzell before but wanted to find a new, to us, hotel. Hotel Hecht is at one end of business district but a few minutes from center of town. We arrived at middle of afternoon and found, happily, that we had been up-graded. A nice surprise because the suite was really nice. There is a sitting room...

This is a quirky little hotel right in the centre of town. Very good sized rooms, spotlessly clean. it is a bit of a rabbit warren as two buildings are joined but once you work it out there's no problem. Staff are very friendly and helpful and breakfast is included. Parking is a short walk but not on the hotel...

We stayed 1 night. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room overlooked the main street and was comfortable. The bathroom was very modern. The buffet breakfast was excellent - lots to choose from. Free parking 2 minutes away. Highly recommended

Hotel is in the center and close to free parking. Rooms are clean and staff was very helpful. We asked for a room at the back so we didn't hear the bells from church across the street. Food is local and very good in this hotel. We would be happy to stay there again.

“A room at the back is best. Otherwise, the church bells will be much to loud, as the hotel is right across a narrow street from the church.”
