    Clean comfortable hotel with carparking and wi-fi. Good restaurant and breakfast. Attentive and helpful staff

    Duvet, but no top sheet provided

    The location is convenient, services offered are ok, specially the internet connection in rooms and the garage. The staff at the reception were knowledgeable and helpful.

    The floors in the room looked bare, I wish if it had at least a small rug next the bed

    Staff friendly and helpful if you want to visit and spend time in Biel, this hotel is ideally located on main road with bus stop literally in front of the hotel. Lake is in walking distance, maybe 15mins. Breakfast is also good.

    Room is a bit old and old stuff in bathrooms too. Needs a rennovation.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    The location is ideal and the staff are very helpful. Dining is adequate and the parking area makes life very easy. Providing the wireless internet in every corner of the Hotel is a clever idea.

  • Single

    The room in standart double category appeared to be very spacious, clean and quite, with very good Internet connetion (cable and WiFi). Strong breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff. Welcome drink presumes very wide choice - not on;y mineral water or tea. Very close to railway station with trains to Bern every 30 min. Well-packed mini-bar in the room. Free parking. Very good velue for money, especially when you remember that you are in Switzerland.

    Very difficult to find something what could disappoint.

    the only group of hotels to supply tea and coffee to make in the room. This makes a big difference to us.

    Location near lake and short walking distance to city center and shoping, free car parking

    It has good location, free parking and staff are very professional. Cleaning is also high-standard as well...

    Really enjoyed my stay at the Best Western Hotel. Staff was excellent and the breakfast (included in the price) was really good! The rooms are spacious and very clean. The best however, was the hotel location. The train station is only a 2-minute walk away which is fairly handy!

    Wifi signal non-existant in my room on the first floor so had to use network cable. Internet speed was slow but good enough to browse and use Skype.

  • Single

    The hotel has a great location - 1 minute walk away from the train station, 7 minute walk away from the lake. The room and the bathroom were big, clean, everything worked, everything in good condition. I would prefer wifi instead of the cable Internet but it was no big deal. The breakfast was good, the personnel both at the reception and in the restaurant were friendly and helpful. I liked the hotel a lot.

    I wish there was a way to fix the shower curtain so that it doesn't follow you and stick to you as you are having a shower :) Everything else was perfect.
