Hotel Stossplatz

Reviewed By tonyj15

Stossplatz is right next to the train station and only a short walk to town. Price is reasonable by Swiss standards and includes breakfast. The staff do not speak English, but they are very friendly and helpful. The rooms are simple, but comfortable. If you're traveling in summer, they have roll-down metal blinds (Germans call them rolladen) to shut out the light (it's light until around 10pm and gets light around 4am). Free wifi in the lobby and in the rooms. No lift (elevator), but it's only a few floors. Appenzell is a quaint little Swiss town. We were lucky and were treated to a free concert of Swiss music at the Rathaus (town hall) above the Tourist Information Center. Worth a day trip.

Lovely restaurant set in beautiful surroundings on top of one of the lower alps in the Alpstein. The view was nice enough, even though the day was a bit foggy on my visit. I know the area reasonably well and i can promise a breathtaking view on a clear day!I had locally produced Highland Cattle beef which was so tender my knife practically sank through it by its own weight! With it I had Appenzeller Weizenbier from the local brewery, and afterwards I sampled the award-winning local single malt which really is ridiculously good. The restaurant keeps one of 27 quite different casks which you can sample along the Alpstein whisky trail.Among several very good hill-top restaurants in the area, this one is accessible by car. I suggest you go there pronto!

We had a very large room in the dependance. It was almost like an appartment (no kitchen). The staff is very friendly and the restaurant in the main house can be highly recommended.

Facilities in this modernized and upper class hotel are great, as is food. The rooms were well-equipped. The pool is fantastic and there are many outdoor activities to take advantage of in this beautiful area. Do bear in mind that this hotel also serves as a high-class rehab centre with the corresponding clientelle.

Had the 4 course meal tonight and it was spectacular! Asparagus and shrimp salad, smoked meat cream soup, beef medallions and strawberries with whipped cream and Ice cream. Finally an espresso. Every course was perfectly presented and scrumptious. The atmosphere was lovely. There were many local families eating and playing cards. The hostess was great but only spoke German. The chef was friendly and entertaining. He spoke in German, English and was also fluent in Spanish. My boyfriend thoroughly enjoyed conversing in Spanish with him. A great place to enjoy a meal.

We had dinner at Restaurant Hof on our one night in Appenzell. Like everything in Switzerland, it wasn't cheap. The service was pleasant and the food was pretty good. Only disappointment was my rosti which was swimming in cheese and was quite greasy. The rest of the food was very nice though.

My wife and I picked this place after stopping by to see the menu. When we were doing that a waitress walked by with a wonderful looking bowl of macaroni and cheese. I had the grilled Appenzeller sausage called Lanfsgemeindeschublig. The sausage came with the aforementioned Mac and Cheese which was better than it looked! Might be the best I have ever eaten. My wife had the Veal Cordon Bleu which was also very good. Would definitely eat here again.

On our second night in Appenzell we chose another Rick Steves recommended restaurant, this time the Cafe-Hotel Appenzell. With the weather cooperating, we sat out for dinner and as they were celebrating asparagus season, I had cream of asparagus soup and my wife and I both had the special of chicken breast over white and green asparagus, which was heavenly! Luckily we both managed to fit in dessert as well; mine was a very creamy Tiramisu. I would recommend Cafe-Hotel Appenzell most highly. As many of the eateries we ate at, they try to use local produce.
