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 hotel reception is open for you: Monday to Saturday from 07:00 am to 10.00 pm and on Sunday from 07.00 am to 07.00 pm.

Research laboratory for Future hotelierS

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.
