      A great find in Biel!

      City Hotel is conveniently located near the train station and offers true single rooms, so you're not paying for space you don't need. The breakfast was good, and the front desk staff was extremely helpful. They let us keep our bags at the desk until check-in, recommended great nearby restaurants and gave useful information about the spa across the street.

      Good breakfast with variety. Drink station of coffee and tea available any time. Friendly staff. Walking distance (5 to 10 minutes) walk to train station, and walking distance to lake Biel. Room is large , basic but clean. Not air conditioned. Good value for money.

      Never again

      No airconditioning with temperatures of 35C. No seperate room for shower. For Bfast had to ask for ham and cheese and juice. Was brought exactly 4 slices for 2 people. No more. Chef came out and took the last remaining bread roll infront of us, while we were still having breakfast.
