              Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff. Terrific location, right on the Aare river, steps away from the beautiful old part of Thun and the spectacular Lake Thun, and a very short walk to the train station (which is a great gateway to the surrounding areas, including mountain hikes). Good breakfast and restaurant; you can enjoy a meal at the outdoor tables next to the river.

              The rooms are modern in an unusual and not entirely successful way--but nevertheless ultimately very comfortable.
