“Very comfortable stay - a hidden gem”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

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.

Especially convenient if you are attending an event at the nearby cultural events center (KKThun). The rooms were nice, warm and quite; the beds and pillows were very comfortable. The staff was polite and effective. Finally, breakfast was good. It is not expensive... compared to hotel prices in Switzerland!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

We stayed here not knowing how good it was going to be. We had to wait a bit to check in so they offered to hold our bags and deliver them to the room when it was ready. We were going to go into town to eat but chose to eat at their restaurant instead. The chef came around and greeted everyone and then cooked up a great dish of fish, potatoes and herbs with an oil sauce, excellent!
When we had finished lunch, we went up to our room on the third floor to find our luggage. The room was ok, a bit small with the ceiling following the roof line down at one side of the room. I hit my head once or twice on the beams, but no biggie. There was a bathroom in the room which was nice and a window in the roof. It would have been nice with a real window, a better reading lamp, and control over the temperature. We had the fan on continuously.
There were some issues with the internet, but they seemed to be working on it, and trying to sort it out. Overall I would stay here again and recommend it to others. Good luck you guys.
As for Alpha sophie, I'm still not sure

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a level (normal) ceiling, maybe not on the third floor with a bathroom and showe...

The hotel itself is just OK, but the staff brings it up a notch in the ratings. The location is great as well. It is a little outside the city center so it is quiet and it is right across from the lake. There is a beautiful walking/running trail. It is a little hard to find but not too difficult. Breakfast is not bad and the restaurant serves good food. Dinner is expensive but that is always the case in Switzerland. There is free wifi in the restaurant and lobby but also available in the rooms for a fee. There are a few parking spots in the back of the hotel but these are usually occupied. However there is additional parking for CHF 4.00 per 24 hours. Note, if you park in this lot I recommend you pay the CHF 4. A colleague got a CHF 40.00 parking ticket because he didn't pay. Overall, not bad. I will probably stay there again.

I stayed at this hotel during the summer. I was very impressed by the staff (very polite and studious) and rooms at this hotel were very clean and spacious and the location was incredible...I'm looking at booking in there again next year. It's across the road from a beautiful lake, within walking distance of everything including the main train station and Thun Castle....I would suggest this hotel to anyone.
