Some good and some negative points.
Good: centrally located, nice rooms, free coffee, water and fruits on the floors and located in the pretty old town of Thun
Negative: the coffee at breakfast was watery, small car park and accommodation fairly expensive

Stayed here for just 1 night, centrally located hotel with excellent staff who are very friendly and efficient. They gave us a pass to use for our stay which gives you free bus journeys. Room was very clean with nice large beds. Breakfast was excellent, despite us eating very late morning everything still was very fresh. I'm only giving it 3 out of 5 stars purely because of the price we paid, whilst I don't have anything negative to say I still don't think it was worth the £140 a night we paid. Reading the other reviews we got a room overlooking the square which doesn't sound like it was even the best room, so very expensive.

Stayed 3 nights early March. Upgraded to room 201 at no charge, which was good. Nice view overlooking the river to the south. Do what you can to avoid the platz side of the hotel. Far more noise from church bells and late goers.

Staff very professional, very helpful, very friendly. No issues at all with front desk staff or housekeeping.

Rooms typically European clean. MUCH appreciated compared to staying in USA hotels which are completely filthy (yes, we're US citizens).

Sometimes you must ask and ye shall receive. when we ran out of drinking water, we simply asked the housekeeper for more. We did the same with towels because we simply won't sit on a hotel room chair in our underclothes without a clean towel put down first. No problem!

The restaurant food was pretty good, breakfast also fine. Problem is that there's a smoking lounge attached to the non-smoking restaurant. Whenever the waitress took food into that room, smoke poured into the non-smoking restaurant. Quite unpleasant for us reformed non-smokers (the worst kind!). Can't wait till Europe figures out that smoking costs money, stinks up and burns holes in your clothing, and makes you no fun to kiss!

We would definitely recommend the Krone, but be sure to be on the river side and even ask for room 201 or a similar size/location room.

Room Tip: We would definitely recommend the Krone, but be sure to be on the river side and even ask for room 2...

Stayed 3 nights but amenities were not replenished. A complimentary bottle of water for the first night but not for the other 2 nights.
Had I stayed for a night, I would have received a bottle. Why not for the other 2 nights?
A small bottle of hand/body lotion for 2 adult persons was almost empty after the 1st day.
It was not replenished nor refilled.
Breakfast was above average...
Some rooms were larger than the others although they were charged the same price... and they charge for the garage.
On a good note, the Personnel were friendly and helpful. Rooms were refurbished and looked neat and clean. The overall appearance of the hotel is neat.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the inner courtyard are small and have no view. Ask for rooms facing either the river...

A welcoming staff will greet you as you drop your luggage off and start exploring. By foot, you can get to pretty much any attraction you'd like - including the historic Thun castle.

The rooms were clean, comfortable and many had a nice view of the main square below. If you like to people watch from your room, consider requesting a room with a view (granted, you may hear a few people leaving the bars late in the evening).

You're also just off the really neat two story street (name escapes me) - which is unusual and fun to explore.

Room Tip: If you want a room with a view over the main square - request one. Just note that sometimes the lat...

Thun is a wonderful little town and we loved our visit here, even though we stopped in on a Sunday and Monday when everything was shut.:P It's a great place to wander, and this hotel is ideally located, on the main square in the middle of Old Town. Everything was spotlessly clean, and the beds were very comfortable. My average rating is based solely on our inability to use the internet. We were given wifi passwords to use in the room but could never get a reliable connection. Also, many of the tv channels didn't work - all the English language ones! We brought it to the attention of the front desk, but neither issue was resolved and didn't seem to concern them. It's not the worst thing in the world to have to disconnect for a while, but if you need access, it might be a problem. That being said, this has been a consistent issue during our travels in Europe, and we're learning to work around it. Finally, I felt it was a bit expensive for what we got, but it is Switzerland.

Room Tip: Rooms looking onto the square are lovely, but can be noisy.

This hotel is lovely with its comfortable clean rooms great restaurants and very friendly staff. It is located in the heart of the old town of Thun and only a few minutes walk away from the lakeside which leads to the town and train station as well. The only negative thing to say is that it can be quite noisy outside at night time but one gets used to it after a while.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the square as it has a better outlook there.
