“Luxurious Hotel”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

This hotel is lovely with its comfortable clean rooms great restaurants and very friendly staff. It is located in the heart of the old town of Thun and only a few minutes walk away from the lakeside which leads to the town and train station as well. The only negative thing to say is that it can be quite noisy outside at night time but one gets used to it after a while.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the square as it has a better outlook there.

The first two things to say about this hotel - the rooms are modern and spotless (I saw two rooms), and the service is first-rate. All the staff here are very helpful and welcoming, it has a nice atmosphere.

We stayed on half-board and had an evening meal at the hotel which was a good meal. However other visitors may want to know that the current Thun no 1 restaurant on tripadvisor - Essen und Trinken - is one minute walk away.

About room choice, there are three sides to the hotel. Make sure to request a room on the sides that face the beautiful cobbled square or the river. We were in a room on the rear side that looked onto a narrow shopping street, and it faced directly towards business windows.

We got told in Germany to come to thun as we did not know where to go in Switzerland, and they booked us at the krone hotel... Stunning hotel on the river in the heart of everything a place that looks like every opera singer in the world had performed, it's the perfect place to stay a few days just before you start the journey to drive through the Swiss alps!

Thun is a charming and lively town at the head of the lake of the same name, and it’s a great base for exploring Central Switzerland. Places as far apart as Grindelwald, Neuchatel and Luzern can all be visited in a day, the Rhone valley is only 45 minutes away by train, while Interlaken and Bern are even closer.

The Hotel Krone is a beautiful building in a picturesque square which my wife and I discovered last year and couldn’t wait to revisit. For flexibility, friendliness and location, it’s unbeatable, and it’s also good value for a hotel in the centre of a Swiss town. The staff could not be more friendly and helpful, fresh fruit was available on each hotel floor and we had a coffee machine in our room.

We asked for a half board arrangement, which made extra work for the staff, but it also showed their flexibility and desire to please. We were able to eat outside by the river in good weather or in one of two restaurants in the hotel (one of which is Chinese), and wherever we chose a personal menu was prepared for us.

I can thoroughly recommend the Hotel Krone. I’m sure our second visit won’t be our last!

Room Tip: We were allocated Room 201 on our first visit, and we asked for it again - and received it - on our...

The rooms were very spacious,as were the bathroom.
There were fruits in the lobby for guests.
However, there was no coffee maker in the room.

The pillows were initially arranged to look like 2 double cones, well, nice to look at, but doesn't this mean that the pillow is too soft?

We got up to the room, and forgotten to ask for the wifi password, I looked for the phone to call reception and realized it wasn't there. I went down to ask the receptionist. she confirmed several times if I was sure, there should be a phone in every room. After I confirmed, she said she will ask the housekeeper.
The next morning when checking out, I saw a phone outside with the housekeeper's trolley, presumably for my room. I though they should have it brought to the room, once they realised that it was not there instead of waiting for the next day. What if I had to call reception for anything during the night?

Our room at the Hotel Krone could only be described as very cool - spare, spotless, roomy, modern. We loved all the shelving, window ledges, wood floors, and all the little extras, like a makeup mirror in the bathroom. It was all so well thought out and comfortable. Desk personnel were also very friendly and helpful. I honestly would have loved to have stayed here much longer than the one night our itinerary allowed.

Stayed at Krone for 1 and a half weeks. The location was superb in the middle of old town. The breakfast was standard and not a lot of different things. So with a quite long stay it got a little boring. The coffee is excellent though as always in Switzerland. I tried the Chinese restaurant once and it was quite okay.

The front staff were always helpful and nice. The WiFi was included, which should be the case today in every hotel.

My room was 101, which is in the first floor facing the river. This means that it was closest to the walking street. The windows where very thin and lady's high heels on Cobblestone street very quite easy to hear. Luckily Thun is quite small town, so not a lot people partying and walking trunk back home (at least on October).

Room was quite spacious and clean. Nice big bathroom at least in my room. A bit poor lighting in the room, I think they planned that people keep the curtains open, but when on the first floor and view from the walking street, so did not do that.

Overall experience very positive.
