For Switzerland this is a pretty good bet if you find yourself in Biel especially if coming by train as it is only a five minute walk away across one street. Good welcome, nice double room for single use with large well equipped bathroom. Quiet at the back overlooking the car park and lake in the distance. Good welcome and...

The hotel looked very old and not modern at all, stuffy room with smelly carpets. There is no night staff and if not for fellow travellers who opened for me, I would have stayed out till morning. totally different from the Neuchatel branch.

For the 'Bieler lauftage' I stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. Close to the city center and train station the hotel is located on walking distance of lake Biel. The rooms are ok, nothing special. Air conditioning would be appreciated as it can be hot during June. The breakfast was good though the staff was not able to manage...

While visiting friends in Biel I chose to stay at this place, mainly because of its central location and free parking. The single bed room had a nice size. The bathroom was a bit squeeze, but worked ok. Room was clean and bright, no a/c though. The front desk staff was very friendly and check-in and check-out worked seemingly. The...

Stayed here on business as usual options full due to tour de France. Short walk from station but in the less salubrious part of town. Rooms don't have air con and on a 34degrees day were rather warm and opening balcony door only let in the noise from the busy main road. Bar area small and hot with average breakfast...

Friendly stuff, very near located to the railway station. A bit disappointed though. The room was satisfyingly clean but the bathroom was pretty dirty. You could easily see the hair on the floor from the former guest and the mirrors were spotted by toothpaste stains, which is a no go for that prize. Summarized: average, but poor hygiene factors.

Was in this hotel during my business trip. +: Good breakfasts, nice tv -: There were 2 separate beds in a double room and you could not move them together as they move away every time and you risk to fall on the floor. The sound of tubes is there every day and night, it is sometimes hard to sleep....

I agree with all the strong points mentioned in the reviews, I would like to add that there is a very wide selection of TV channels including all the mainstream UK stations. The service was good as well when I needed to scan some documents. The place doesn't feel very upmarket but who cares if the room is comfortable and...

To spend a night in Biel, I paid 128 CHF (about 120 €) to be one of the worst hotel in my life. I chose this hotel to stay near the station and to stay within the average of the cost we wanted to spend. The bathroom was old. The bidet was rusty and full of rust taps, the floor...
