Very nice and confortable hotel very good situated near the main railway station and for ladies, in the middle of the shopping mile......The service is very nice. In fact the hotel is much much better than the website of this establishment. Very poor and bad quality ( the manager told me he would change it as soon as possible !!!!!!!!!!!!!!). In fact a good place for business and solo customer but definitely not for family with children........

Room Tip: Hotel is really good situated very near of the railway station. The service is nice and the room are...

Thank you very much for your kind feedback. It was a pleasure to meet you personally at the hotel. And we discussed about our reservation system. We intend to improve our reservation system in that moment. This updated version will be enclosed in our new hotel homepage which will be activated in the next few days.
It would be a pleasure to see you again in Biel - at the hotel Elite.

So, I was staying in the hotel for 6 nights. The reception area is very nicely decorated and the staff was helpful and polite (especially Sabrina). I stayed in a single room and it was rather spacious and clean, actually one of the best in 4* hotels I've stayed.
The breakfast was quite good and the music which was playing was very relaxing. Hotel also has a bar called Baramundo. I didn't have time to visit it but I saw that it was always full in the evening (probably because it is one of few places in Biel where you can stay later than 10 pm).

Clean reasonable business hotel. Staff went out of way to help. Ask for a room high up and at back to get away from the traffic noise and the hotel bar which is buzzy,busy and noisy but worth a visit. Restaurants and room service food good. Parking is in Railway carpark some distance away and somewhat inconvenient particularly when raining.

This is a fairly upmarket hotel in the centre of Biel/Bienne. The location is perfect if you are arriving by train, but avoid if you have a car as parking is some way off and CHF22/day.

The room was reasonably sized and Swiss spotless. My disappointment was the shower - the temperature varied quite substantially during the course of use, and the water did not drain away fast enough.

When I stayed it was quite warm. The rooms do not have aircon so I wanted to open the windows to get the temperature down. However, it was very noisy (my room was at the front) and the window had to be closed at night to sleep.

Good points: the staff were efficient, friendly and suitably attentive. WiFi worked well. Breakfast. Bar/bistro. They also have a fine dining restaurant, which was excellent but pricey (be ready to pay close to CHF100/head with wine).

Room Tip: Avoid the front if you want to sleep with windows open (summer)

I spent one night in this hotel on a business trip. The rooms are well thought out and the bed comfortable. WiFi was OK. Dinner in the lively bar/restuarant downstairs was excellent although there is a more up-scale restaurant in the hotel if you wish to entertain. The building itself is very stylish and centrally located - only 5-10 minutes from the station.
The downside for me in this hotel was the street noise. Most of it came from loud people in front of the bars/shops/restaurants streetside. The noise died down around 23:00.
Breakfast was standard continental buffet.

Room Tip: Maybe try asking for rooms that look out to the back of the hotel. These may be quieter than on the...
