Reviewed 27 September 2011

Our second stay at Hotel Adler was even better than our first. Our lovely room overlooked the Adlerplatz with a view to the beautifull rolling hills beyond the river. Of course it was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast is generous and delicious. They have added a beautiful dining cellar where the best fondue in Switzerland is served. The family works together to make you feel welcomed and taken care of. They made reservations for us at a berghotel and held our luggage while we stayed up there a night. Our best wishes and warmest regards to the Leu family.

The location of the hotel is very well located, close to everything in this very lovely town and area. Our room was in the more traditional section which we liked. Though it was small, it was comfortable. However, it was located right above the rear door where there was a delivery at 1am each night. Also, be forewarned if you are staying almost anyplace in the center of Appenzell, the church bells ring all day and night, every 15 minutes. We began to get used to this, but the first night was a bit of an adjustment. The owner and his son were very helpful, giving us a warm welcome and were quite friendly.

I was in Appenzell as part of a hiking group. The Hotel Adler is a simple, well-run family hotel. The owners are very gracious, and I would certainly recommend the hotel to anyone visiting Appenzell.

My room was a good size for a single, but it was on the ground floor right next to an outdoor terrace. Because of that I had to keep my windows locked most of the time. The carpet could use updating, and the bathroom could do with a new shower curtain.

The food was plentiful and quite good, both at breakfast and dinner. The hotel has a new fondue restaurant in its cellar, and the meal we had there was very good.

Very nice B&B-type hotel in the Appenzell town center. Host was very gracious, always helpful, and had good suggestions for things to do in the area. Breakfast is good, and the fondue is terrific. Spotless quarters and common areas.

Only minor issues: wireless Internet is flaky - I think they have a configuration issue. Also, the location is right on the busiest intersection in town, so it can get noisy at times.

Overall a wonderful place.

Very well located close to the train station, clean and pleasant family run hotel with a fantastic in house bakery / cafe. We stayed here for 2 nights and the hosts made it a most memorable holiday and Birthday for my dad and us. They made a special cake and the lady played the clarinet for us.

We highly recommend their fondue made in their traditional cellar and the excellent selection of their cakes and tarts.

Stayed here at the end of a long trip to Switzerland, France, and England. Unfortunately, Appenzell's quiet charms were a slight let-down after a week in Bern, Grindelwald, and Montreux. Still, this area is definitely worth a visit, and Adler is recommendable. Good location, good service, a fine breakfast, and a decent, clean room. Nothing outstanding, but no complaints, either. Probably rates 3 1/2 stars--not especially memorable, which a 'very good' hotel would be.

Hotel Adler was our first stop in visiting Switzerland. We were in full jet lag mode upon arrival which was around noon. The owner's son welcomed us in, took us to their breakfast room and brought us fresh coffee and a continental breakfast. We weren't charged. In hindsight, I must have looked like I needed it. :-) The owner arranged for us to have a fondue dinner one evening with all local cheeses and bread. It was delicious. I can't stress enough the friendly demeanor of the place. We felt welcomed and at home. Breakfasts, included in the price of the rooms, were filling and delicious. Ten minute walk from the train station in old Appenzell.
