I had to visit Biel on business and I chose this hotel due to its close proximity to the train station as there is a very efficient train service from Zurich to Biel. The hotel is not expensive at about USD$210- per night. The check-in process was laborious and I was asked to pay in full before being given the... More

The hotel has generous rooms and is right in the middle of Biel, problem with that is, there's no parking at the hotel, you have to find something in the streets nearby. The biggest problem though, is the lack of aircon in the rooms, it's like a sweat box at night, you need to shower before bed and again when... More

I have stayed at the Elite quite a few times now, and am saddened to hear that it is closing in 2015. I can only say get there quick if you are planning a visit to the lovely city of Biel/Bienne in Switzerland.

The hotel is located midtown close to the railway station. Friendly and polite staff. Clean and comfortable room. Excellent breakfast. I was on a bicycle holiday, and they took care of my bicycle during my stay.

Good location, comfortable bed, very calm (my room was opposite to the main street which is in itself not a very busy one). 100 meters or so from the train station. Easily accessible by road, the hotel as no parking and you have to park at the train station. Nice staff. Good breakfast. In four words: a very good stay.
