The Lab Hotel

Three-star rooms and a lively research laboratory. This is where future hoteliers and real guests meet. The Lab Hotel is a platform for experiments, innovation and encounters. 45 modern hotel rooms, 6 lab rooms, 13 serviced apartments and 6 capsule rooms. Welcome to the future!


The virtual doors of The Lab Hotel are open around the clock. Take your time looking around and choosing your room or lab room. Click here for a virtual tour of the hotel.


At The Lab Hotel, we test the latest technologies and hotel concepts under real-life conditions. We offer students at the Thun Hotel Management School the opportunity to experiment with new concepts and their own ideas. They develop the room and service concepts themselves – and can observe the effect they have on the guests directly. In return, our guests have first-hand experience of the latest trends in the industry, before anyone else gets the chance to.


The current situation requires flexible solutions. The first opening step at The Hub Bar at The Lab Hotel is done. We are open: Tuesday to Friday: 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Saturday: 8:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m., Sunday and Monday: closed. In addition, there is a fresh food on offer.

In the morning, we are currently serving our guests a delicious breakfast.
Price: CHF 24.–

In the evening, our guests have the choice: They can enjoy a 3-course menu for the special price of CHF 65.- in the star restaurant of the Hotel Seepark opposite. (Please reserve your table at the reception of The Lab Hotel the day before.) Or they can take a 5-minute walk to Lake Thun and dine at the Schloss Schadau restaurant. There you can choose from eight different dishes, which can be individually combined into a multi-course menu; each dish is also served as a starter or 2nd main course. Main course only: CHF 39.-, 3-course menu: CHF 65.-, 4-course menu: CHF 75.- (Please indicate reservations when booking your room).


It’s all in the mix. Guests on business or holiday-makers who want to get to know Thun and the surrounding area feel at home in our 45 modern hotel rooms. Our 13 serviced apartments are primarily intended for longer stays and also have cooking facilities. Our Japanese-inspired capsule rooms are an inexpensive solution for overnight stays in Thun. Everyone who is looking for something out of the ordinary or who wants to try something completely new will be happy with one of our lab rooms.

LAB Rooms

Unique rooms and special room concepts. Our lab rooms are created in collaboration with external partners and the students of the Thun Hotel Management School.

Discover the local area

The Lab Hotel is really only a few steps from the shore. Cross the street, and you will already be able to see Lake Thun through the shrubbery. A few metres further on, and you will be standing on the shore with the most incredible view of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. The sun rises over one of these three mountains (depending on the season, of course). The lakeshore makes the perfect backdrop for a morning jog, and right next to it is the English-style park, the ideal location for yoga, tai chi or morning meditation – or just for a short walk to end a long day.
