Romantik Hotel Santis
Ranked #1 of 16 Hotels in Appenzell
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 January 2013

Very nice hotel located on the center square in Appenzell. The room was quite large a very comfortable. We looked out onto the square and had a front row seat to the herders driving their cows to the mountains. An Appenzell experience. Great staff, very helpful. Great location to tour town, head off to the mountains for sightseeing or hiking. WiFi only in the Lobby.

We stayed here two different times on our 10 day trip. The room was spacious compared to others we experienced in Europe. The room was very cozy and felt like home. Bed was comfortable and the bath was very clean. The room included a separate tub and shower. The staff were very nice and polite. The breakfast was great with fresh local cheeses and fresh baked breads. The food was great and the bar was just right with local beer, and other drinks as you choose. The only complaint was there were a number of smokers in the bar area, but then again we are spoiled being from Califonia. The smoke did not permeate into the hotel, so it was not a bother anywhere else. We left the hotel for one night as we went into the Alps to hike and stay at a Berghouse, the Hotel held our large luggage while we hiked with one nights worth of supplies in backpacks. Just ask the front desk and they lock your luggage in a room. The location was great being in the center of town and walking distance to other shopping, restaraunts, and the train station. We will for sure return. I will try to add photos later.

Room Tip: ask for a room facing the main square, they have a great view and are the largest.

We stayed here 2 nights at the beginning of our 2 week Switzerland vacation. Appenzell itself is beautiful and this hotel was very accomodating. We stayed in a Junior Suite and it was very large and very comfortable. As other users posted be sure to book a room in the back away from the bar and square in front in you are looking for quite. After a 9 hour flight and a bit of jetlag it was pretty lousy being kept up all night by the party going on downstairs. Absolutely nothing against the hotel itself. We asked to be moved and they graciously assisted. I didnt checkout any other hotel in the town but this hotel was great and I would highly recommend. The restaurant downstairs was great and seemed to be really lively each evening.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the restaurant/bar for a quieter experience

Definitely not ....... I explain why:
- toilet paper roll was not inserted into his disposer
- TV In the room was not functionning and reception lady was unable to help, although she nicely tried......
- no In-house Wifi connection: Howard is it possible nowadays. Just inacceptable.

For all those reasons, I recon why foreign visitors prefer Austria to our nice country.

A pity because the welcome was good upon arrival, their restaurant is excellent and the rooms are large, although would need some restyling ...

For a smaller town, it is a good hotel. There is no AC and if you have a room facing the front when you open the windows it is very loud. We had to change rooms after the first night since the noise from the resturant patrons and street keep us up, along with the clock tower and it was very hot so we needed to keep the windows open. Good news is that the staff was very helpful and even found a fan for us to use the second night and really tired to accommodate us at all times which is the most you can ask for. The "free" wifi in the lobby did not work on any of our apple devices so if you need it be prepared to pay for it. Parking was free with plenty of spaces in front of the hotel. The location was excellent with plenty of shops/restaurants within a 2 to 5 minute walk. Overall, it was an average hotel, but given that Appezell is a smaller town, I think that this hotel is our best bet.

The Romantik Hotel Santis, is situated very centrally. The rooms are big and really well appointed. The bathroom large and lovely and light. The restauarant was really super, the breakfast was great, plenty of choice, and it just kept coming, no worry of running out. The dinner restauarant is on the front of the hotel, super views, lovely to sit for a coffee, beer, then have dinner. Can really recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We had a top floor room over looking the square, i loved it because we had 6 windows across the room...

We stayed in this hotel for 3 days for a company trainingcourse. The hotelroom was very large, well equiped and comfortable and good size beds. Staff was very friendly, pure and attentive. Also the restaurant quality is above par for this type of hotel! I had a very good stay here, and would book this hotel privately without a single second of doubt!
