Fodor's Expert Review Romantik Hotel Säntis

Landsgemeindepl. 3, Appenzell, Appenzell Innerrhoden, 9050, Switzerland

With a crisp and formal ambience, this prestigious hotel has been in business since 1835. Old-style touches—inlaid wood, painted beams—mix comfortably with the jewel-tone rooms and gleaming walnut cabinetry; some rooms have four-poster or canopy beds. The restaurant serves regional specialties in either of two wood-lined dining rooms: one Biedermeier, the other a folksy Appenzeller style. Guests can borrow bikes for free.
