Located in the very centre of Thun, this airbnb room is a perfect base for ecxursions to Bern and to the touristic highlights of the Bernese Alps.
This location is a perfect base to visit Bern and the touristic sites of the Berner Oberland.
The comfortable room en suite (12m2) with its 140cm to 200cm sized bed is a perfect place to stay for one or two guests. Part of the arrangement is a bathroom, equipped with a shower. The room belongs to the spacious apartment, where I am living in.
The railway station is a 15 minutes walk or two bus stops away. Due to the central location of the B&B-room, a considerable variety of shops, bars, restaurants and the historic centre of Thun are a stone’s throw away. The castle of Thun can be reached in 10 minutes and also the lake is not far away.
Thun is well located for day trips to well known touristic destinations of the Berner Oberland and the Wallis like Interlaken, Mürren, Grindelwald, Jungfraujoch, Wengen or Zermatt. But also less known areas like the Emmental offer rewarding sites to visit. During winter, the important skiing resorts of the Berner Oberland are not far. Bern, Switzerland's capital, is 30 km or 20 minutes away (for both, either car or train).
The guest room and the bathroom (equipped with a shower) are for your disposition, the kitchen can be used as well. A generous and sunny balcony is available for quiet summer evenings.
Breakfast is included, tea and coffee are always for your disposition. In the case that I am at home, it will be a pleasure for me, to take care you of your breakfast. If not, everything will be prepared and you just have to switch on the coffee machine and the toaster.
Interaction with Guests
I live in the apartment and we share i.e. the kitchen and the balcony. When I am around, it is a pleasure for me to have a chat with you, to reply to your questions, to give touristic advices. I enjoy the talks and the exchange with my guests a lot, but I accept and appreciate the desire to withdraw and your privacy.
“Schwäbis”, that is the name of the neighbourhood, where the airbnb room is located – close to the ancient city wall and the historic centre of Thun.
And those who like to swim in a fresh mountain river: The public bath and the river Aare are a stone's throw away. It opens the doors from May to September.
Three minutes away from the apartment you will find a bus stop, where the busses “1” and “3” will bring you to the station, two stops away.
The airports in Basel, Zürich and Geneva are well communicated by the Swiss railway system (SBB). You will have no difficulties finding a train to Thun, although you possibly might have to change the train in Bern.
When you arrive by car, you will find a commercial parking not far away. There is parking space in front of the house, but this should not be used by my guests, unless for short term.
- No smoking in the apartment
- Preferably no dogs
- Since I am living in the apartment, I should be glad if you respect my privacy and my private rooms.
- And, if possible: No shoes in the house (due to the “sensitive” wooden floor).
Thanks for respecting these few house rules. ;-)
du warst eine sehr engagierte gastgeberin. dein perfektes gastzimmer und separate dusche, das morgenessen sogar nach speziellen wünschen, deine aufmerksame präsenz, deine einführung über die stadt thun, du als gesprächspartnerin und interessierte, kommunikative zeitgenossin, gesellschaftlich beobachtender mitmensch - weit mehr als ich erwartet habe - danke, danke!
Meine Kollegin und ich waren für eine Nacht für einen Kongress in Thun. Monika hat uns sehr herzlich willkommen geheissen in ihrer schönen, sehr ordentlichen Wohnung. Die Unterkunft mit Zimmer mit Doppelbett und eigenem, gut ausgestatteten Bad (Duschmittel, Fön, Streckseisen ;) etc.) war ideal für unsere Bedürfnisse.
Am Morgen war das Frühstück liebevoll hergerichtet worden. Wir haben uns rundum gut aufgehoben gefühlt und würden Monika auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen. Vielen Dank nochmals!
Our stay with Monika was wonderful! We found her apartment easily and loved our proximity to Thun - the town, train station, and lake. The Panorama Card she made for us really made our trip - free bus rides to Interlaken or wherever else and discounts on a bunch of great tourist attractions that we took advantage of and saved a lot of money. The room/private bath are great, and she prepares a lovely breakfast each day. Overall I absolutely recommend staying with her and experiencing beautiful Thun!
During my travels, if it were possible to take my accommodation with me, I would choose this place, as it was the most comfortable and efficient and clean place I've stayed. Monika is also a very good host who was more than willing to help make my stay pleasant.
Monika is a caring and enthusiastic host and her house is spacious and tidy. :) Her place is close to the supermarkets and public transport station which is very convenient. We have a private guest bathroom and laundry service to use. She offered us a guest-card which is pretty useful for saving money visiting sites and castles – we got free admission to castles and 50% discount to St. Beatus Cave and cable car ride to Niederhorn. Breakfast is great and we had a hearty chat before the day of departure - it is really a valuable cultural exchange experience.
excellent host!!! really good with people, impeccable, nice touch, very well situated, very clean and spacious apartment, parking for car, felt like home to me and Eliane. did not expect the breakfast arrangements truly special! thank you Monika.
It is really a pleasure to live in Thun, the Alps and the lake of Thun are so close, as well as Bern and Milano. I like to visit European countries, for instance Germany, UK, Spain, France or Italy. It is so important to meet local people, to get a feeling about every day life in the countries I am visiting. And to learn from them, to deepen my knowledge about other cultures and mentalities, to exchange ideas. To get connected with the world and to create and share positive experience. That is why I like to host guests in my home.
