Wonderful hotel in a lovely town

Pros: Easy walk from the train station, even pulling luggage. Great staff, great breakfast, great room, internet. The bathroom was large and newly redone.
Location: It's a relatively small (walkable) town, so it's not far from anything. Train station, lots of restaurants, & the brewery are all close.
We had a wonderful stay at the Hecht Hotel in Appenzell. The rooms were huge by European standards, and the bathroom was incredibly large with both a bathtub and separate shower. Everything seemed brand new--the furnishings and window treatments were spotless. The included breakfasts were excellent and the staff very helpful. We asked for ice each night and it was brought to our room. We stayed 3 nights and had a fantastic time exploring the area. If you stay at least 3 nights, you get an Appenzell Card good for free train travel in the region (buses, too) and some free rides on mountain cable cars and an alpine slide. This saved us quite a bit of money--basically paid for one night's stay. There was also internet included for no extra charge, and it was fast and reliable. We would totally recommend this hotel to anyone. One previous reviewer had an issue with the church bells ringing across the street, but we didn't hear them at all. We do sleep with our windows closed, and use a white noise app on our phone, but we truly didn't hear the bells. We also had a room in the back of the hotel--if you had one directly across from the church (front of hotel), you may hear them more. You can always request a room in the back if you think it might bother you. There is no A/C, so if you're there in the summer, you may want to leave your windows open at night. Also, we were told the bells don't ring after 9 pm and we never heard them before 8 am, when we were eating breakfast.
