    Tea-making facilities in the room or in the common area would have been very nice.

    The hotel is close to the railway station and it was very easy to travel. They offered a travel card with free cable car rides, which was very useful. I asked for a quiet room and got one, facing the back. And the personnel was very kind and helpful. All in all, a wonderful stay.

    We have requested one double bed and they have given us 2 single beds one next to the other one. In fact this hotel does not have double beds at all, they pull together 2 single beds and "sell" this as double bed. They should change the advertisement . This is very common in the German part of Switzerland, hotels do not have double beds.

    Excellent breakfast, everything fresh and very good quality and quantity Excellent location , in the middle of the town and very close to the train station

    There was nothing not to like. It was possibly understaffed but the young lady in sole charge was very good. It is a perfectly pleasant place for an overnight stay but I wouldn't spend more than 1 or 2 nights.

    Location. Value for money.

    It was 86 degrees the day we stayed and there is no air conditioning....that might be a consideration for some. We left the window open and were fine all night. I would not blame the weather on the proprietor.

    The hotel is in the old town. The room was very private and everything was spotlessly clean. The staff was friendly and helpful.

    There is no air conditioning. In summer must be a nightmare. It will be so hot inside, than no one will be able to sleep.

    The location close to the train station and the sightseeing places in Appenzell

    No water served. It can be very noisy with all the happening places like bars and restaurants around it.

    Location is perfect. In the middle of the town. Breakfast was quite a spread too.

    It will be even better if and when they open a restaurant. In the meantime, their fantastic breakfast goes a long way.

    A gem for those who like small, friendly boutique hotels. This one (actually Hotel Hecht, sister hotel to the Loewen, closed for renovations) was run by very efficient ladies who couldn't have been more helpful. With three overnights, the hotel also supplies the Appenzell Holiday Card which, for one week, allows for at least $200-300 worth of free travel on trains, busses, and cable cars. Both the hotel and the Holiday Card are an exceptional bargain in expensive Switzerland

    The sound of the church was very disturbing at night, I couldn't sleep well but I think this sound will be heard in most of the area in the old town of Appenzell.

    friendly and helpful staff

    Everything met our needs.

    We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Lowen. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooms were clean and comfortable, breakfast was plentiful and offered a good variety, and the location was central and within a 5-10 minute walk from the train station. We felt it was better than what we were expecting and would recommend to others.

    We found the room very hot even with the windows open. Reading in bed difficult with low level of lighting.

    Located at centre of the village. Hotel has limited car spaces available so get in early. Staff looked after us well. Breakfast was good, limited choice but more than sufficient.

    Breakfast could be a bit more diverse. Noise from the street all night long (but it was new year's eve - it's probably very quiet in all other nights).

    Comfortable room. Very central. Friendly staff. Wifi worked fine.

    Interior is a little shabby but it's a historic building

    Old world charm and wonderful location among shops and restaurants
