Alain D wrote a review Aug 2021
Kreuzlingen, Switzerland346 contributions151 helpful votes
Well, we liked the location with the fantastic view of the Bodensee, the nice wine recommendation for our dinner, the spacious bathroom and the nice spa area. We frankly disliked some staff behavior: without naming those individuals I was surprised to ask 3 times for the “ a la carte” menu, it seemed that one wanted to force the daily menu ( I guess for convenience) but it should be up to the guest to choose. Then while asking for a shower cap at the reception, the answer was: we don’t have such an item in our hotel! Really? 4* ? While we got a coffee machine in the room we also like tea, and we were expecting it would be easy to organize also one boiler for the room. The answer from the reception: it depends of the room category (needless to say that that person had no idea which room category we booked. The highest one! Still she wanted to send us to the kitchen to get some hot water! What a service!!! Luckily one person heard that discussion and intervened to bring us boiler and tea in the room. Thank you to him. And for that woman at the reception she should review how she communicates with hotel guests. On the hotel side, it lacks a bit of charme, just functional, nothing to be blown away. On the kitchen side, even if it showcases Michelin and Gault &Millau, our Chateaubriand (cooked as ordered) was not so warm once on the table and the veal the next day was below average, we didn’t finish our plates, we never heard an answer from the cook after our complain. So in all we got a mixed feeling from that place after our 2 nights.

Dear Alain D First of all I'd like to thank you for having chosen our hotel for your weekend. I am sadened that beside the some positive remarks from your side, we have not been able to satisfy you completely. I am surprised about the answer with regards to shower caps- of course we do have them ready, but because of low usage we do not have them in the rooms. I shall take action on this point as well as on the communication in general. On hotel side, I am glad to inform you, that the hotel shall undergo major refurbishment early next year. I am convinced that you will like the "new" Hotel Heiden (you will be able to follow progress on www.hotelheiden.ch/zukunft soon. I do hope that you will give us a chance to prove that we can do better. Best regards Erich Dasen, GM

We had a very nice short stay at Hotel Heiden. Our room was spacious and modern. It had a minibar, a coffee machine and two balcons. The dinner was simple yet very nice. The breakfast was great, a lot of good quality food. The wellness area was nice but a little overcrowded, probably due to the bad weather and COVID regulations.

The Hotel Heiden is a charming hotel. I loved the village of Heiden, and the hotel is only a few minutes' walk away. The rooms are well appointed, and the staff are very helpful and friendly. There are bicycles available for rent. The dinner option was very nice - maybe not top-class dining, but absolutely acceptable, especially considering the not-too-expensive price tag. The spa facilities are perfect - the swimming pool is a good size (which is rarely the case with hotel pools), and the sauna/steam room area is very nice. The only downside is the parking - you need to pay CHF 5 per night for parking, but there are not many parking spaces at the hotel, so you need to park down the road near the Kursaal. Not a big problem, and the parking fees are quite reasonable - but it would be more convenient for people e.g. with families if the parking would be closer.

Dear Angoose77 Thanks for that lovely review and for staying with us. We are very pleased to learn that you have enjoyed your stay. Indeed it would be nice to have all the parking spaces in front of the hotel, but then the view would not improve.... We do have 2 spaces for unloading/Loading in front of the hotel and all parking spaces are within 200m from the hotel.

There are rooms with Lakeview (Lake Konstanz, Bodensee) and park view. The park view hotels are recommended if you would like to have afternoon sun. Regrettably, many park view rooms do not have a balcony. The rooms are nice and quiet. From the lobby and some parts of the restaurant you have a great Lakeview. This is a 4 star hotel but the service in its restaurant was not at all 4 star! For dinner during two nights we had to wait enormously long for getting served, because of COVID restrictions it was the only place to have dinner otherwise we could have gone some place else.

Dear Yves00000 Thank you for your review. I am very sorry that we did not meet up to your expectations in service. It is a fact, that due to covid every guest will have dinner at the hotel and most of them come at the same time, which makes it difficult for kitchen and service to have everything ready at the same time. Please bear with us a little bit. In "normal" times this will not happen and even now we are trying our best to improve on this situation. Best regards Erich Dasen, GM

We went as family including our dog and had a very nice stay in the hotel. The service was very good, everyone in the hotel very cordial and always with a smile in their face. The spa is not very big, but the variety of sauna was quite good. The installations were very clean and well prepared for the COVID restrictions. Superb swimming pool with a view to the Constance Lake. The most outstanding surprise was the 5-course dinner menu. The food was very tasty, with the right portion size (not too much not too few) and good presentation. It was our 1st time in Appenzell and the region is very beautiful with great food and interesting Swiss traditions. Appenzell is a must: very very cute village. So overall great experience and for sure we will come back.
