Guestrooms are rather plain but comfortable and exceptionally clean. Just inside the front door of the Rössligump is a picture of the neon sign at Joe's Stone Crabs, for decades a hugely popular Miami Beach restaurant. The hotel's young owner once worked there and the picture is the visitor's first clue that the Rössligump is different. After all, there are hundreds of Hotels Rössli in Switzerland but only one Rössligump (horse jump).

Rene Jungreithmeier, owner and a beer connoisseur, stocks more than 20 varieties of the stuff, including one of our favorites, the Czech beer Budvar, on draught. When we were there he was touting a new offering, Quöllfrisch, from an old Appenzell brewery.
