Freienhof Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is perfectly located right next to the river. I had a single design room which had a chaise longue and i could look over gushing river, very relaxing. I took my bike to be able to cycle in the region and around the lake. Bike parking is possible underground in a public car park out of view. The hotel is 5 mins walk from the station and right next to everything in the old town. The hotel is clean and service was very nice. A 5/5 would be appropriate for a better selection at breakfast and also on the restaurant menu in general, but overall an excellent hotel and good value. If I come to Thun again I would def think about staying again.

Easy to find hotel. Parking close by and adequate. Small hotel exceedingly clean and tidy. Design double room small ok for 1-2 days not ideal for longer stay. Everything in room LOW. Not user friendly if person taller than 1.80 m. Good value for money for 1 night.

Having stayed here many times in the past it is always one of my first choices to stay when in Thun. You always receive a friendly greeting upon arrival and the staff are always happy to help. The rooms are clean, well equipped and well maintained and generally well laid out. The location is great and I particularly like the sound of water. The food in the restaurant is fantastic as is the breakfast. Always a favourite place for me to say and will continue to be in the future.

Its a conference hotel but walking distance from the train station on the bank of river Thun. Personally like their standard rooms with a view of the river than the newly designed rooms. Breakfast is very sumptuous and nice. The staff is very helpful.

This hotel was recommended to us once we arrived in Thun and discovered that our pre-booked hotel was too far from the conference we were attending in Hohmad. This 4 star hotel is beautifully located in town and on the River Aare. It is within close walking distance of all the main spots in Thun. It caters for people traveling for business or leisure, and appears a popular venue for seminars and conferences. The rooms are basic, but comfortable, modern in design, and very warm! There are only 2 floors of rooms. We did not have breakfast included in our booking, but the on-site restaurant looked quite popular with guests. One can request toothbrushes and slippers at no extra cost😉 The staff are always very friendly, and we experienced a pleasant, seamless 3 night stay.

This is a nice hotel by the river in Thun. Welcoming staff, clean room, nice bed but a bit of strange interior. Unfortunately there was lots of noise outside the window of my room due to works on the building.

The hotel is located in the very center of the old town of Thun directly by the river Aare. The entrance is a little hidden in a very narrow side road which also serves a the access road to an underground parking garage. Caution: the parking is definitely not included in the room rate whatever impression you might get from their description. The atmosphere is modern, clean and neutral. Staff at reception speak English, are friendly and business like.The rooms are extremely tiny though offer all the basics and are well maintained. The rooms facing a little waterfall are a bit noisy otherwise the location is quiet. The breakfast is excellent.

Good hotel for 1 night. Beautiful facade, but the inside is extremely modern & small, oddly shaped rooms due to renovation. It has a good restaurant where you can order a “Stone Meal”, which is a fillet steak that you cook yourself on a very hot stone.

Near by train station which took about 5 min by walk and is easy to find it.Main street just turn left out of entrance and several nice restaurant and Muller supermarket nearby but very quiet.The staffs are very friendly & provide "Panorama card Thunersee" which allow to have free local public transportation.

Great hotel on the river and around the corner from the white-water rapids and surfing. In June 2018 the old hotel building, shown in most pictures, was being renovated (probably to retail and apartments). The hotel itself is a modern and well apppointed building.
