Stayed here while travelling through Europe on a motorbike tour so secure parking was important. Staff were great actually and sorted out a free and secure place to leave the bike at their underground car park. The hotel, while a little expensive, is in a great location, couldn't be better. Our room was very clean, modern and quirky. I'd happily... More

Me and my girlfriend visited Thun for a short break, I had visited about 4 years earlier for business and was booked in here and loved the town so much I decided to revisit. The good points are, the location, cleanliness, that's where it ends. The hotel rooms are tiny, the bathroom is a wet room shower type area with... More

Dear guest Thank you very much that you have taken the time to write a comment about your holiday in Thun. We are sorry that we couldn’t make up with your expectations and you didn’t feel comfortable in our hotel. As you say, the hotel is located on an Island, so you can hear the river pass by.

Actually, this hotel excels at everything, but that decision was made after staying for the three nights. On arrival and opening our room door I was horrified at what was before us - an ultra modern, steel everything - headboard, end of bed table (OVER the end of the bed !?), steel bed, plastic chairs, no paint on the bare...

Dear guest Thank you very much that you have taken the time to write a comment about our hotel. We regret that our rooms didn’t cover your expectations. Most of our rooms are business rooms which are equipped in an urban and modern stile. But, as you say, we have also traditional rooms, which we can be reserved, if available.... More

A great hotel with a good view of the river. Splendid rooms with a good view of the old city of Thun. I enjoyed the coffee break during the business meeting. The supper was equally great especially the red wine that was served. The continental breakfast was superb. I recommend this venue for business meetings.

We wanted to stay within a walking distance from the Thun Old town, so that we don't have to drive all the time. This hotel truly provided us with a great location. The parking was next door (underground), but we were able to park in front of the hotel while unloading the car - not difficult at all. Biggest minus... More

This hotel has an excellent location in the heart of downtown Thun. Sadly, that's about the only good thing I have to day about it. The hotel does not provide free wi-fi in the rooms - Swisscom Public LAN has the contract for Wi-Fi, and it costs CHF 25 a day. The hotel does provide free ethernet (wired) internet connections...

With Ulsterbus tour. Excellent central location by the river. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms bit on small side with little storage space. Clean. No air conditioning but lying with window open listening to river sounds can be very soothing. As we were in a group dinner was 3 course set menu with 2 choices of main course. Always good... More

I spent 5 nights in this hotel, with sound of the Aare river outside my room. Thun is an outstanding location to tour this area of Switzerland, and a very interesting town to visit in its own rights. The staff cannot be faulted, all being most helpful and polite. There is a good restaurant with a good choice of food... More

It’s a very nice hotel in an immensely beautiful place. It‘s located right in the center of Thun, surrounded by the river and just in a walking distance from the railway station.
