Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stopped off on our way to the Valais . Were content with our stay. Reception was friendly, beds were comfortable, parking opposite only 4 CHF for 24 hours. Breakfast was great, and we had a cup of tisane in the evening from the lobby after enjoying our meal in the hotel restaurant very much Pizza, fish bits and cordon bleu with a generous starter salad went down very well with a bottle of local wine (petite arverne) Staff obviously enjoy their job here. Would stay here again any time.

Have stayed here before and again had a wonderful stay. Great hotel, friendly, helpful staff, restaurant food is lovely, excellent, clean, comfortable room, really good value. Perfect location overlooking the marina and park and just 5 minutes on the bus into Thun centre. Buses every 10 minutes and included with the Panorama card given at reception. Cant fault this hotel and will always be my first choice.

I stayed at this hotel during the summer. I was very impressed by the staff (very polite and studious) and rooms at this hotel were very clean and spacious and the location was incredible...I'm looking at booking in there again next year. It's across the road from a beautiful lake, within walking distance of everything including the main train station and Thun Castle....I would suggest this hotel to anyone.

Especially convenient if you are attending an event at the nearby cultural events center (KKThun). The rooms were nice, warm and quite; the beds and pillows were very comfortable. The staff was polite and effective. Finally, breakfast was good. It is not expensive... compared to hotel prices in Switzerland!

We stayed here not knowing how good it was going to be. We had to wait a bit to check in so they offered to hold our bags and deliver them to the room when it was ready. We were going to go into town to eat but chose to eat at their restaurant instead. The chef came around and greeted everyone and then cooked up a great dish of fish, potatoes and herbs with an oil sauce, excellent!
When we had finished lunch, we went up to our room on the third floor to find our luggage. The room was ok, a bit small with the ceiling following the roof line down at one side of the room. I hit my head once or twice on the beams, but no biggie. There was a bathroom in the room which was nice and a window in the roof. It would have been nice with a real window, a better reading lamp, and control over the temperature. We had the fan on continuously.
There were some issues with the internet, but they seemed to be working on it, and trying to sort it out. Overall I would stay here again and recommend it to others. Good luck you guys.
As for Alpha sophie, I'm still not sure

The hotel itself is just OK, but the staff brings it up a notch in the ratings. The location is great as well. It is a little outside the city center so it is quiet and it is right across from the lake. There is a beautiful walking/running trail. It is a little hard to find but not too difficult. Breakfast is not bad and the restaurant serves good food. Dinner is expensive but that is always the case in Switzerland. There is free wifi in the restaurant and lobby but also available in the rooms for a fee. There are a few parking spots in the back of the hotel but these are usually occupied. However there is additional parking for CHF 4.00 per 24 hours. Note, if you park in this lot I recommend you pay the CHF 4. A colleague got a CHF 40.00 parking ticket because he didn't pay. Overall, not bad. I will probably stay there again.

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 front of hotel.
3. Interlaken is 30 minutes from Thun by fast train.
4. Thun lake boat ride begins from Thun. Stop is near Railway station.
5. Breakfast is excellent.
6. We took a triple room which was big enough, neat and sleep quality was satisfactory.
7. Thun itself is a nice town.

The rooms are not AC but when we stayed, night temperature was around 15, so, no problem. They offer free icecream and tea and fruits in the reception. Coffee machine was out of order. For free Wi-Fi, you have to come to reception area.

I would surely go again in the future!

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. My wife asked for a replacement for the feather pillow and it's very poor quality. Traffic noise with windows closed is a problem. We are a few rooms from the elevator but still hear it. Can also hear people talki g in another room. I do not recommend staying here.

Dear Ken Thank you very much for having taken your time to write a review. We are very sorry for the inconvenience. We always try the best to satisfy our guests. Some problems cannot be solved on the spot. As the structure of the building is older than 30 years, it might be possible hearing other guests. But for your next stay, it will be possible to get some earplugs at the reception. Concerning your complaint about the hardness of the mattress we would like to repeat what we have told you already at the reception: We have made a survey among our guests, asking what the preferred hardness would be. An overwhelming majority told us they liked softer mattresses. That’s the reason why our beds are equipped the way they are right now. However, we hope you could enjoy your stay at the alpha thun and we would be glad to welcome you some time again. Best regards Your alpha-team

A great hotel with big and comfortable rooms, a great buffet breakfast and very nice and helpful staff. A free ticket for public transport provided by the hotel was a huge bonus and enabled us to travel all the length of the lake many times. The lake itself is very pictoresque and we'll worth seeing. What is even more important the the hotel was very reasonably priced and has a good restaurant with fresh and tasty local dishes in the menu.

Dear Peter. The hotel hasn't its own parking spaces. But as Mukhare already wrote, across the road is a large public parking lot. It costs only CHF 4 per 24 hours.

Can tickets for local attractions and boat be booked at hotel and is there a discount?
Answer from Irina B
Thun, Switzerland3 contributions1 helpful vote
Thank you very much for your question and sorry it took so long to answer. If you want a sightseeing tour in Thun, you can easily book it online at thunersee.ch A ticket for the boat you can buy right at the station. But you receive the panoramacard here at the Check-In. With this card you get a discount of 50%. Further discounts and offers with this card you find on the Webpage of interlaken.ch I hope that answered your questions. For further questions, please contact us. Kind regards and greetings from Thun. Irina
