What I can tell about this wonderful hotel. The location is excellent in the center of Thun city in an island in the middle of the river and all rooms have direct view on the river and bridges. Rooms are clean and the staff are service oriented. They have free car parking for hotel residents. I strongly recommend this hotel.

Stayed in Classic Room which had a wonderful of the river and covered bridge. We could also see the castle from the small balcony. The room was very quiet with the only noise being the sound of the water. There were roller shutters to block the light when sleeping. Location was fantastic as you are right in the town yet...

The rooms are small, I would expect larger rooms for 4 stars hotel. Anyway besides the size I realy like how they used the tiny space to make a comfy place. Staff are helpful, parking is on-site and the price is suitable. Location is good and the view is nice. I recommend it to couples and families with quiet children.

...and if I can, I stay here. Great location, water views from every room and a great breakfast. The price is also attractive. If you're sensitive to light, the shades might be a bit of a problem (they don't close completely). Otherwise, entirely satisfied.

We travelled to Thun by train and Hotel Freienhof was first stop on our Swiss adventure. Train Station to Freienhof was about a five minute walk - easily done while wheeling a medium suitcase. The walk was made even easier by the sight of snow capped alps at every turn. The Hotel sits on the river's edge, making it a... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. ... more   less
