The first time I arrived at the Appenzell train station I had a hotel reservation but no idea where my hotel was located. No one was around the station to ask directions. I saw the Hotel Stossplatz across the tracks and went there to seek information. The staff there was very pleasant and told me how to find my hotel. In August '04 my family stayed at Hotel Stossplatz on a short visit to Appenzell. It's a small hotel with bar/restaurant on the first floor. The breakfast was the usual selection of meats, cheeses, breads, cereals, juices, and coffee. The rooms were spacious and the beds clean and comfortable. One of the positives is that the hotel is so near the train station; one of the negatives is that it's so near the train station. You do hear the train noise throughout the day. The hotel is not air conditioned so we had the windows opened during the night so the noise was more noticeable than it would have been if the windows were closed. The hotel does not have a lift and we had to carry our luggage up two flights of stairs.
In summary, this hotel offers clean rooms, good food and a pleasant staff. It's less expensive than many other hotels in town. I'd recommend it to someone making a quick overnight stop but if you're looking for a hotel for a comfortable vacation for a few days it's not the most appropriate choice.
