This place is great, clean,comfortable and great hot showers. Restaurant serving reasonably priced hearty meals. Location is spectacular!!!
Hotel Alpenrose is a five minute walk from Wasserauen railway station where the trains run at 18 and 48 minutes past the hour to Appenzell (14 mins) or Gossau (50 mins). This is a family run hotel in an amazing location and it shows in the very friendly, pleasant way they treat their guests. If you stay for three or more nights you will be provided with the Appenzell visitors card which allows two free trips on each of the three local cable cars, unlimited 2nd class travel on the railway and buses in the region, so you can travel as far as Gossau or St Gallen on the train. The card also provides many discounts and special offers for local attractions and services. I was given the Appenzell card and a sheet of full English instructions at reception and both girls were really helpful and spoke excellent English. I had a single room which was quite spacious with shared bathroom, but this was no problem during my stay. The bed was very comfy and enabled a good sleep. The location is so quiet that even if you open the window, all you can hear is the gurgle of the local river and occasionally the distant tinkle of cowbells. Breakfasts at the Alpenrose are continental style: fruit juice, breads, ham, cheese, fruit, cereals, yoghurt, croissants, jams and tea/coffee. You can also buy meals which are served from 5 - 8pm and the prices are quite reasonable. I would recommend you try the 'Alpenrose' ice cream if you are into fruit and multi flavours of ice cream. The hotel is located at the start of many hiking trails and the nearest cable car to Ebenalp is only five minutes walk away. Appenzell is a very pretty town with richly decorated buildings and certainly worth a visit. Clearly three nights was not long enough to enjoy all the unspoilt delights of this region. I will have to return soon. Thanks Hotel Alpenrose for making my stay so pleasant.
Having to leave.
Perfect location in Wasseraunen, right next to the railwaystation.
Before arriving to Appenzell, I have searched through internet first to see lovely hotels. What I found is Hotel Alpenrose that intrigued me at first sight because of magnification view surrounding. When I came there, I was so overwhelmed. Fabulous place for travellers. Service is very good. Just internet is a bit slow. But looking around this place, it is very good for hiking to Appenzellerland. I will return again to this place !.
The hotel is near the cable railway. The room for the price was valuable. The staff was very nice and helpful. They could speak english, french and german. The shower was not in the room but it was close (5-10 m) and it was big and clean. I got a feeling like I was in a chalet, so a kinda plus :)
The noise of the river was very loud with the window open.
Clean,good location,good view,
No fruit for breakfast,
loved the included activities card that entitled us to bike rental, use of cable cars, free museum entry, etc. because we stayed 3 or more nights. WORTH it's value by far...even when it rained nearly the whole time we were there.
friendliness of staff good restaurant and food many hikes start right outside your door!
nothing would recommend this rather than staying in appenzell(but that town is worth a visit!)
It is a great starting point for mountain hiking
No TV at all in the hotel was almost an no go for us during Mundial
Amazing Location. Value for what you pay. Clean hotel.
Food was not great. Lunch was expensive and very greasy, and breakfast could be better
The staff was very courteous and helpful. It is located very close to train and Ebenalp cable car station.
Had a chance to hike up high enough to see the cows recently herded upland to eat the new grass. We somehow managed to hit the weekend when the farmers in full costume, moved the cows upwards.
Too bad internet didn't work but we needed the break from it anyway.
Great location for hiking and enjoying the outdoors. Even though we shared a bathroom, we had our own sink in the room. Also, the shared bathroom was excellent with a separate room for the toilet and two different shower rooms. They were never full and the shower was the best one I had in the whole month in Europe! Very nice staff and good food!
No ATM available in the whole little town! So bring your own cash or just charge it to the room.
Wonderful hotel in fantastic place! We took one double and one single room and both were very lovely, spacious and comfortable. We took rooms without private bathrooms, but there are two showers and two toilet-rooms on the floor, so we could always find one that was free. The owners are friendly and very helpful. We got the holiday-cards for 3-nights stay which give you many options to enjoy the area and saved us a lot of money. The hotel is just next to the hiking trails and the Ebenalp gondola. And finally, we were lucky to see from our window how a huge herd of cows accompanied by their cowboys and girls in the national costumes were going up to the mountains for summer feeding. One can see them on their way back down in autumn.
