The view, the stuff and the location. I think we had a better room than the one booked.
Needs renovation but still clean.
It was centrally located with easy access to transport and the town centre in a very scenic area.
The mountainview from my room on the 5th floor
The room is a bit old, but more than acceptable for an overnight sleep. OK the view from the window (the "boast beautiful views" with which it's sold is a bit exaggerated I think). Very good location just on the edge of the old town. Nice gentleman with nice blind dog at reception in the morning.
The reception apparently closes after 11pm, which wasn't clear in the booking, and I luckily managed to arrive there a few minutes after then, when they were just closing it, so I could check-in and get the key just in time - not sure what would have happened had I got there later, whether there was a way to wake up someone to check-in or if I had to look for another place in the middle of the night.
small hotel near castle and old town sites
Breakfast was very poor .. no cooked options, tinned juices and fruit, one cereal etc.
Everything about the hotel was excellent, and even though there were no coffee making facilities in the room when I arrived back at night, very wet and cold due to rain, the lady on duty obtained a coffee for me from the Breakfast Room. Excellent service!
I was expecting coffee/tea making facilities in the room. Perhaps they do not have these facilities in Hotel's in Swittzerland.
I thought it perfectly adequate for my needs which was basically somewhere to sleep near the centre of Thun. Breakfasts were good.
The bedrooms were basic and rather comfortless.
The room was on the 4th floor and had a spectacular view of Thun Castle and the distant Alps. Although there was no balcony, the window was very large and opened onto the view. The room was also extremely spacious and included a seating area. It was very well placed for walking into the town and down to the lakeside, and was also easy to access from the main road into Thun. The Castle is just across the road and was well worth exploring. There is an excellent museum spread over several floors and the view from the tours is just stunning. The other absolute highlights of our visit were the Thun Panorama (360 deg painting of the town) and the amazing Schloss Hunegg at Hilterfingen further up the lake.
Walking distance to the old town and castle and rivers
Room was rustic and quite ordinary
The location is fantastic & the staff were great.
We did not know about booking a car park space in advance.
The location and cleanliness of the room was great, buy I felt it was quite pricey for what it was.
We didn't realise that breakfast was included and were not made aware of this at check in. Switzerland is a very expensive country therefore having breakfast would have helped the cost.
The hotel is in the city centre and easy to find. We have stayed before and find it very convenient
Rooms are basic but clean and comfortable and the staff are helpful. Also in a good location for easy access to the old town of Thun.
the location was great and it was very clean and the beds were comfortable.
