City Hotel Biel Bienne, Biel
Best Western Biel
Unfortunately the hotel was being refurbished and my corridor stank of paint which infiltrated into my room. There was also noise like drilling in the evening. Traffic noise is also an issue. Trucks can be heard from 4 am so ear plugs are a necessity at least for me.

Not recommended
Dirty room, construction near hotel, and front desk staff who were clearly not engaged- wouldn't stay again.

Great base for Biel
Good hotel - good breakfast and short walk from rail station. The only point I would highlight is it was very hot when I stayed. Whilst fan was provided it was still very hot at night. Would use again if staying in city - but may avoid in exceptionally hot weather !

Favourite stay for work in Biel/Bienne
Renovated since my last stay- very tasteful. Very convenient for work and comfortable. Good food and service. Would advise a room away from the main road if a light sleeper.
