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 was the missing WIFI - well atleast a free one in the room. You had to pay for it unless you had a wired version. Free WIFI was available at the lobby.
Breakfast was great - a bit slow at some points, but good and a good selection of things.
Rooms were ÜBER modern - atleast on the new side (not sure if there actually are rooms on the old side and if they are of different style).
The bathroom had glass wall (frosted) - gave enough privacy for us, but if you'd be more private type - this would not be your place!
VERY difficult shower! there was a shower curtain, which didn't stay put so all the water run on the floor - we ended up putting a small hand towel on the ledge, then placing the shower curtain against it and placing another hand towel on top of the curtain (sandwiched it inbetween the towels) - no more water on the floor!
Biggest issue was the lighting in the room. Plenty of it but not proper nightlights. So when my husband wanted to read (jet lag) in the middle of the night - there was too much light for me to sleep.
Nice thing was that the windows had an electronic blind, which allowed us to turn the room VERY dark even during the day.
We had a SPECTACULAR view to the river - Christal blue (and Icy cold!)
While in Thun, take a ride on the ferris wheel - definately worth it!
This hotel also rents bikes (although we didn't have time for that)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Our historic, yet modern hotel is situated in an idyllic spot by the River Aare on the edge of the old town of Thun. 66 renovated modern rooms, 700m2 of professionally equipped seminar facilities and a creative kitchen offering speciality foods are brought to you in a refreshing manner by our young team.
