“Wonderful stay!”
Reviewed 20 May 2013

Stayed here 2 nights and had a really nice, comfortable stay. The staff are really, really, helpful and nice! Didn't stay in the room much but it was comfortable. Had to leave very early the next morning and requested a breakfast to-go, and even though it was too early for the kitchen, they managed to put together a pack for me. Good hotel for a business trip.

This is a great hotel for anyone doing business in Biella. The rooms are spacious with everything that a business traveller could want. My room had a decent desk and the free wifi is a decent speed.

The bed is comfortable and the bathroom is fine. The rooms are clean and neat.

The bed and breakfast rate we got was very competitive (for Europe) and a good breakfast is included in the price.

Stayed one night in the Agora Palace. The room was spacious enough, comfortable and clean. Good choice at breakfast with the possibility to get real Italian coffee from the bar at no extra cost. If the weather is permitting, you can have breakfast outside on the piazza.

Biella is a lovely town and Agora is a good choice, located in the centre. Staff is very polite, the rooms are clean (look new or refurbished recently), good space, good sleep. Breakfast is above average, parking is free and safe.

Conveniently located on mainstreet. Quiet and comfortable rooms with adjustable air condition. Great included breakfast. Wi fi accessible everywhere ni the hotel. One hour free and 5€ for 24h. I did not experience the restaurant but it seemed fine. The staff at the reception was friendly and helpful.

Biella is a lovely quiet town with lots of room to move around and enjoy a renaissance period city which made its money from the wool trade.
The hotel is well located and more or less new. The staff did a great job of making us feel welcome and we really enjoyed out stay.
The room was large and well furnished with good quality materials, bathroom was smallish, but OK for a short stay, Good amenities.
Road noise was quiet high and the muzak from the corridor loud at times
Paid internet
Very average breakfast
Expensive for the product
Likes dogs

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back ~ overlooks courtyard

Reviewed 20 December 2007

The Agora palace surpassed my expectations.
The room was very roomy and the bathroom was very up to date. The name palace really was used apprpriately. I really appreciated the adjacent shopping area, the Hotel actually opens onto a small plaza of a shopping mall which includes a huge supermarket.
I arrived with a bad head cold, they made every arrangement to help me with hot drinks and more-and no, these items were not charged.
