"Lovely staff, nice hotel, cheap for Switzerland."
Right by the No.1 bus stop (it's not walkable from the station), Alpha Thun is a restaurant/hotel with energy-friendly/contemporary touches. On the surface, all good, but scratch it slightly and you may find it far from ideal. Arrived Saturday, couldn't pay the bill there and then - had to leave Sunday early, so anxious about having enough to time to breakfast and settle up as well. In the end, had to curtail breakfast, a real shame, because it looked delicious - several domestic cheeses, salmon, fresh fruit, delicious fresh bread - all provided on a Sunday. Room (single, shared bathroom) cabin-like, extremely squeaky bed, walls paper-thin, its light hardly worthy of the word. Staff otherwise extremely helpful, genuinely nice, worthy of praise, in fact. Another gripe - the marketing blurb posted around the lobby and restaurant - referring to 'fish'n meat & desserteria' and 'hotel and sleep factory' and other total nonsense - utter, utter garbage, laughably bad. You could even travel the whole of Italy and not find such heinous crimes committed to the English language. All in super-cool lower-case, of course. Pah! Dreadful! But, for the price, you wouldn't find better in the centre of Switzerland.
