I stayed at Alpha Thun for 2 nights and it was great. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Moreover, the staff was incredible friendly and helpful. I had my passport stolen on a train and they printed all my documents to bring to the airport - free of charge or hesitation. They also provided wonderful recommendations for things... More

Stayed here for a few nights and having experienced no air conditioning on a long, hot train journey, was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by complimentary water, mini muffins and ice creams on arrival. This set the scene for a very enjoyable stay. The restaurant food was good with the breakfast buffet being of a high standard - the prosecco... More

The Alpha Hotel lacks of air conditioning in the rooms and this can be annoying if you happen to stay there when it's +35 C outside. Breakfast is wide in options and buffet. The room is acceptable for the price taking into account the hotel location.

I've stayed here a few times on business and found the hotel in general to be good value, especially considering Switzerland's overall high prices. It is a good idea to avoid the top floor room as the ceiling is low ( I'm six foot one inch). Breakfast is good and the location is not too far from the train station.

This is our 10th hotel of the trip. I chose 4 (or 8) ratings and above and this is the first disapointment. The bed is a soft cushion over squeaky slats. My wife asked for a replacement for the feather pillow and it's very poor quality. Traffic noise with windows closed is a problem. We are a few rooms from... More

Dear Ken Thank you very much for having taken your time to write a review. We are very sorry for the inconvenience. We always try the best to satisfy our guests. Some problems cannot be solved on the spot. As the structure of the building is older than 30 years, it might be possible hearing other guests. But for your... More

I had a business trip to Thun and read through other reviews on the Alpha Hotel. Booked the hotel and was not disappointed, a very nice hotel clean and Comfortable. The room was basic but that's all you need as you will be out and about exploring the area. Will be going back later in the year for a visit... More

I absolutely loved my (very short) stay at Aloha Thun. Firstly, the receptionist was fantastic, so helpful and really made us feel at home and relaxed upon arrival. The room was very clean and simple but perfectly heated and the beds were so comfortable. The staff really make this hotel, they obviously value their guests. The manager should be very... More

Arrived late, and first impressions was this was some sort of cult Hotel! Must have been the group sat "Chilling" outside and being greeted by one who let me in via a code/Key system. Then the Alpha Energy tablet on the bed! Seemed a bit weird! I was just there for a bed for the night, so locked the door... More

A great hotel with big and comfortable rooms, a great buffet breakfast and very nice and helpful staff. A free ticket for public transport provided by the hotel was a huge bonus and enabled us to travel all the length of the lake many times. The lake itself is very pictoresque and we'll worth seeing. What is even more important... More

We loved this hotel! Spacious with good size bathroom & bath & a tv - yeah! The breakfast was great - I enjoyed the champagne. Although our room was on the main road at the front it wasn't too noisy & we slept ok. We used Thun as a base to go to Jungfraujoch. Thun is a lovely town .... More
