This is a terrible hotel, beds are old and you can feel the springs come through. Worst of all, I couldn't sleep because the front door got slammed really hard all evening until late. This was no fun. Eventually, I tried to get in touch with some of the hotel staff, but the hotel seemed to be abandoned. This was rather creepy, actually. I then went to check Tripadvisor for a GOOD hotel and this turned out to be just around the corner: Hotel Krone. I took just my wallet and passport, left all my stuff in the room and went to Krone. Mind you, this was all around midnight, and I was exhausted and totally annoyed. I got an exceptionally warm welcome at Krone and within 20 minutes I slept like a baby in one of their very comfortable beds.
The next morning I collected my stuff and went back to Krone for breakfast. Now for the roughest part: the clerk at Quelle had asked me to pay for the room the day before, and also asked me to enter an amount for the tip. Yes, you read that right: he asked me to pay a tip when I checked IN! And with me being tired from my travels that day, I had actually tipped them. I'm really sorry about that.
Worst part: they have a Tripadvisor badge on their door, but I cannot find this hotel when searching hotels in Bad Ragaz. They're not listed, until you actually enter the hotel name. Tripadvisor, what's up with that?
