The Alpha is probably best graded at the top end of 'backpacker' hotels - the rooms are basic yet comfortable and the hotel has a lot of little touches that elevate it above the rest - Free bus passes, free snacks and coffee in reception, good bar, great breakfast. For Switzerland, it is relatively cheap and I think it offers... More

I stayed here with a colleague on a business trip. We got in after dark but we're impressed with the beautiful views of the lake and mountains. Food in the restaurant was great and the staff were really helpful!

We had a pretty large hotelroom, with everything you need. The room was clean, but really basic. The hotel has a large public parking across the road for which you have to pay. In the lobby you can get free coffee and muffins. We had dinner in the restaurant, which was good but a little bit expensive.

nice relaxing stay. good breakfast and friendly staff. the rooms on the top floor are somewhat low and have lots of beams everywhere, so not ideal for tall people. i do believe that they are renovating them at some stage.

We stayed at this hotel in August 2013, the hotel is right across from the lake, the service was super. They offered coffee and great muffins when we arrived. The rooms are typical Swiss, comfortable and clean. The staff was very nice and recommended things to do and restaurants. The room they first offered us was on the street side,... More

We decided on this hotel as it was reasonably priced and dog friendly. There was no extra charge for the dog and no rules on their size either. On check in the receptionist was friendly and helpful, and as we had a dog offered us a room with a balcony (there is an extra charge for this type of room,... More

The dinner menu is just great and has lots of local awards. The wine shelves are easy to browse so you can select your wine from a huge variety from Switzerland. Such fun ! And the breakfast had great choices with eggs cooked to order. The staff was very friendly both in the restaurant and at the hotel reception. They... More

Located near the Lake of Thun ans good for walks, in fact, in 30 minutes you could even walk to Thun. But all in all, lived up to the expectations gor... More

I had a very comfortable stay at this hotel. The room was clean, modern, and good-sized. The personnel was very friendly. Dinner and breakfast at the restaurant were also very good! I would definitely recommend this hotel/restaurant to my friends and family.
