Attention to detail.

All the best. Nice, attentive staff. Everything well organized. Even sundays, where the staff apparently the day and the reception and restaurant are, everything is perfectly organized, for example, the 'chill harrow' with fruit, cakes and drinks or a willkommensspruch in the room. Breakfast buffet rich, with attention to detail. Rooms are small, comfortable and functional. A bit too hot for my taste. Very comfortable beds, quiet rooms. With opened window road noise (we had a room on the side, not right on the road). Restaurant with 4 different set menus for lunch. Very delicious. Large car park for 4 ... chf/24 hours. Only 5 minutes to the city center. Highly recommended! read hotel review

A basic hotel at a fair price-performance ratio. Very friendly and helpful staff. Generous breakfast buffet, as in a 5 star hotel. Bravo! read hotel review

For swiss standards reasonably priced, and i for a quick night in a single room with shared shower in hallway had selected, which was not too often. Unfortunately were toilet and shower right next to my room, so that it a bit louder was. Otherwise, the room was simple, but clean and with a bed, closet, tv and chairs equipped. Above was-skylight, the one its age but something merely had (should from the 80 ern his, was also a bit leaky). Nevertheless vollommen adequate and for the price (in the Switzerland) acceptable. Friendly receptionist, breakfast with buffet and decent choice ..., as far as everything ok. read hotel review

Rustic hotel on the outskirts of Thun

For a short stay thoroughly recommended, but the hotel is not the newest and the rooms are by the rustic furniture was a bit old-fashioned. The hotel is not in the city center from Thun convenient, but about 2.5 kilometer outside. read hotel review

I'm a 52 year old karate instructor who traveled solo to Thun from the USA for a 4 day karate camp. The Alpha Thun was a 5 minute walk to the Sporthalle Lachen, which was very convenient. The room was small (perfect for just me) and very clean. Breakfast was included in the hotel cost which was great, and the dinner I had at the hotel restaurant was outstanding. read hotel review

    The breakfast buffet was simple and healthy, with fresh fruit, breads, cheeses and meats daily. Drinks included in the free buffet were juices and coffee/espresso/latte, et cetera. The one dinner I ate at the hotel restaurant was reasonably priced for the area, and extremely good.

    Thun is about a 20 minute train ride from Bern, and a very easy commute from the Zurich airport (I think it was about 90 minutes by train). The hotel is less than a 5 minute walk to the lake, which is absolutely gorgeous. There is a Coop (market) and several good restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, and downtown Thun is a 20 minute walk or 5 minutes by bus. The path along the lake is beautiful!

  • Room
    6.0

    The room was very small but tidy, with an open shelf armoire, a small desk with a flat screen tv, and a single bed. The large windows opened to let in fresh air (no air conditioning here) and had a decent view. The bathroom was clean, with a small shower stall. There is a vending machine on the 2nd floor landing.

  • Service
    6.0

    The staff at Alpha Thun was very friendly, always greeting me with a nice smile and "Hello!" when I came in from training or sightseeing. After greeting me in Swiss German the first time they realized I spoke English, and remembered from then on. Andrea at the front desk made checking out very simple and gave me easy instructions regarding the train station downtown. The cleaning staff was also friendly and did a great job keeping my room clean.

  • Sport & Leisure
    5.0

    The hotel itself had no real entertainment, but the crystal clear lake directly across the street made up for the lack of a pool or sauna. Thun is more of a resort town so there's no night life to speak of (that I saw), but there are plenty of outdoor activities available. My only complaint was that the free wifi only worked well in the lobby...it was spotty in the restaurant and I only managed to get one bar coverage in my room if I sat near the window. Extending wifi coverage to the whole hotel would be convenient to international travelers like myself.
