    Very good situation on the river in the city center

    Small rooms with the nearly transparent (!) bathroom occupying 1/3 of the room, small beds (called "Queensize"?!), no minibar, no place for the luggage and clothes, parody of the closet, no place to hang towels in the bathroom. Uncomfortable underground parking having no access to the hotel. "Fourstar hotel with twostar equipment and services."

    Nice

    Location

    Contemporary but not quality. It was trying too hard to be unique and ended up like it had been fitted out by ikea which doesn't work in a hotel setting - everything seemed done on a tiny budget and ended up seeming cheap and rickety. We couldn't wait to leave.

    Great

    The location is wonderful in between the old city and beneath the river, the design of the rooms is nice and modern.

    My room was at the water front near the old bridge and the noise of the river is dominant, to sleep with an open window isn't possible for noise- sensitive people

    Perfect

    Excellent central location. Nice rooms, modern design, elegant.

    The bathroom being almost see-through. It looks fantastic but its not very practical. I'm sure this is fine for married couples, but for the non-married, or if you are friends sharing a room there is a privacy barrier that is missing.

    Nice

    Striking, central riverside location - noise of rushing water far better than that from the Saturday night crowds which were a safe distance away.

    The single room had too much furniture and was a bit bleak with the basic 60s-retro design. More self-service at Sunday breakfast, including drinks, than I would have expected in a four-star hotel.

    Great

    Location is excellent by the river in the centre of Thun. Bed was comfortable. The modern rocking chair was surprisingly comfortable. We turned up early expecting just to drop our luggage but we were given our room at 10.30am.

    Room was small. Did not care for the "modern" ensuite- felt like we were on big brother with the frosted glass walls and sliding glass door.

    ONLY the Location

    (many things) 1.Hotel staff ..my God... they were very bad with us (no smile, one of them she (her name is Christie ) ignore us, you feel the serve you with hating) . 2.The Twin bedroom very small even we pay more than 300 U.S dollar. This hotel is a prison in an excellent location

    Perfect

    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.
