This was our first visit to Switzerland, and we chose to stay at the Schwert Thun Hotel based on the prompt, cordial emails we received in response to our information requests. That excellent communication was only a hint of the enjoyable experience we had during five happy days there in early October. From the train station it was about a... More

This tiny hotel with only 7 rooms, located in the historic inner city ( close to the medieval town square ), is housed in a building dating back to medieval times. The location is excellent and it is about a 10 to 15 min. walk away from the train station. If you have luggage, I recommend taking a taxi as... More

Thun is a lovely town, very convenient to the Jungfrau but much less commercialised and with a much more friendly and intimate feel than Interlaken. The Schwert is well located in the heart of the old town and has plenty of character. The room we stayed in was spacious with an eclectic but comfortable style of furnishings. The staff were... More

This is a wonderful find in the beautiful little village of Thun. We used it as our first stop after flying into Zurich. It helped break up the trip ( on our way to Zermatt) because it's a short train ride (2 hours) from the airport. The hotel is near the train station so we could walk. Wheeled luggage is... More

This is a beautiful little boutique hotel in the center of the old town in Thun. Like Thun itself this is an undiscovered gem. The room we stayed in was large and beautifully decorated with wonderfully chosen antique furniture and art on the walls. The feeling is light, bright, rustic and antique. The staff were patient and helpful and there... More

Our stay at this hotel began like an episode of "Fawlty Towers." We were standing outside in the cold at a time we had been told was a normal check in time, ringing the reception bell 5 times over 30 minutes. We were considering a long walk back to the train station to ask the tourist office to call for... More

Perfect location in the middle of Old Town. Spacious, pristine room with large bathroom. Comfortable bed. Terrace just outside room. Staff were very accommodating and helpful -- went above and beyond in helping us get our laundry done. Breakfast was great -- fresch croissants, bread, jam, cheese, muesli with yogurt, eggs, coffee, juice. Coffee maker and mini bar in foyer,... More

Stayed here four four nights in May 2012. Could not fault the accommodation. Endo ( the manager ) and his staff were so accommodating and friendly. They could not have made our stay any more enjoyable. You do need to note that there are no tvs in the rooms, but who needs tv when you are in Switzerland. Also, thank... More

Staying here was one of our best decisions during a recent trip to Switzerland. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom small but well designed and spotless. It is positioned in the old town. Thun itself is very attractive town and Schwert Thun is a great place, at an excellent price, to stay if you want a clean, comfortable and... More

We just returned from a crazy trip to Italy and Switzerland with an extended family of 9. Of all the hotels we stayed in on this trip this was our favorite! It is a wonderful restaurant with 5 rooms they rent out upstairs. The rooms were so charming and well appointed. We put The kids upstairs on the 3rd floor... More
