Hotel Freienhof

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. Although we are in the centre of town, peace and quiet are guaranteed since our rooms are on a little peninsular where all you hear are the gentle sounds of the River Aare.

This is a nice hotel by the river in Thun. Welcoming staff, clean room, nice bed but a bit of strange interior. Unfortunately there was lots of noise outside the window of my room due to works on the building.

Dear John We are happy to hear, that you enjoied your stay at the Hotel Freienhof and in the town of Thun. We are sorry that you had to put up with noise. For the next twelve months there should be no building activities at the hotel any more, so you shouldn't be confronted with that kind of noice. We wish you a nice trip home. See you again in Thun.

Good hotel for 1 night. Beautiful facade, but the inside is extremely modern & small, oddly shaped rooms due to renovation. It has a good restaurant where you can order a “Stone Meal”, which is a fillet steak that you cook yourself on a very hot stone.
