We had a triple room which was very spacious and functional. The hotel is located about 2km from the picturesque town and just across the road from the hotel is the lake (albeit with no direct views from hotel). There is a bus stop across the road with a regular service to Thun and the hotel gives you a discount... More

Dear guest, Thank you for your detailed and honest feedback. We are sorry that the room was too noisy for you. We also have rooms to the other side, which are more quiet. You can ask for a more quiet room directly next time when booking. Kind regards, Your alpha-team More

Just what me and my wife needed. We booked one of the room with a private bathroom and it was great. Breakfast was plenty and delicious, people at the desk(like Joanna) were kind and useful.

Decision to stay at Alpha Thun was made primarily based on exorbitant prices at Interlaken. The decision proved more than correct because of following: 1. Thun is well connected by train in various directions. (Interlaken, Berne, Towards Brig, etc.) 2. The hotel is well connected by bus no. 1 from Railway station. 8 min ride. Bus stop 'stranbad' exactly in... More

I stayed at Alpha Thun for 2 nights and it was great. The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. Moreover, the staff was incredible friendly and helpful.

Stayed here for a few nights and having experienced no air conditioning on a long, hot train journey, was pleasantly surprised to be greeted by complimentary water, mini muffins and ice creams on arrival.

The Alpha Hotel lacks of air conditioning in the rooms and this can be annoying if you happen to stay there when it's +35 C outside. Breakfast is wide in options and buffet. The room is acceptable for the price taking into account the hotel location.

I've stayed here a few times on business and found the hotel in general to be good value, especially considering Switzerland's overall high prices. It is a good idea to avoid the top floor room as the ceiling is low ( I'm six foot one inch). Breakfast is good and the location is not too far from the train station.

This is our 10th hotel of the trip. I chose 4 (or 8) ratings and above and this is the first disapointment. The bed is a soft cushion over squeaky slats.
