    • Please help me find a specific hotel in Ticino, Switzerland?

      Switzerland Jan 3, 2015 at 8:28 AM

      I need to find out this hotels name, it's situated in Ticino.
      This is what I know about the hotel:
      It is very big and have both a main building and other buildings as well. It can have 400-500 guests when full.
      It has two or three restaurants one restaurant is in another building and that restaurant is more for banquettes and big occasions it's called "the Paradise".
      The hotel has one bar inside and one pool bar.
      It has a Spa with emotional showers.
      It has 24 hours reception service.
      The floor in the reception area is blue and beige tiles.
      This Christmas there was a big celebration party with dinner and a band and this New Year they had a big party too and the hotel was full.
      It is a family owned hotel, the owners are old and they have two adult children, one daughter and one son
      The hotels entrance have glass doors.
      It has several levels and it's very hard to find your way there if you are not familiar with it.
      If you stay in a room in another building one of the staff will take you to your room in something similar to a golf car.

      Please if anyone knows what hotel this could be, answer me.

      Appenzell, Help

      by BarbaraH25 Online Now Mar 17, 2013 at 5:25 PM

      Appenzell, help!


      I am planning my trip and find it a struggle now that I am in Switzerland (first trip to Europe) without a car. We decided to make our way by train in Switzerland after 2 weeks with car in Germany/Austria.
      We are planning to spend 2 days in Appenzell before going to the Jungfrau region. How do I pick a Mountain Inn when I don't know which lift to take? What is the distance from the lift to the Inn? How far from the train station.There is not enough detail on the web sites I am using. Found Appenzellerland the best. Any advise with be great! We are in our late 50's and do not want to hike for more than .5- 1 mile from lift to Inn.

      Thank you.

      We will be in Apenzell in a few weeks and plan on taking the cable car up Mt Santis. Should we purchase tickets in advance? Is there a best time to go? I presume warm clothes will be necessary! Any advise?
