The Elite hotel is centrally located, a 3' walk away from Biel train station. The rooms are renovated and have kept their art déco style and spacious and modern bathrooms even in single rooms. My room (321) was situated towards the backyard and very quiet, the heating was on full steam in the room but freezing cold in the bath....

The hotel is situated in the center of Biel near the main train station and is newly renovated. The room is comfortable. However, the most fantastic part of the hotel is the free entry of the fitness center of Migros Flower Power in the same building. There are only a very few hotels in Switzerland which has such facility. I...

Though the hotel is rather aged. It is well maintained, bath room and bedroom looks neat and clean. Good size room. Friendly staff, probably the Swiss standard. In the middle of the town with good restaurants around.

We were headed to Biel for the second time this year on business. The first hotel-experience was horrendous. We were holding our breath anticipating the outcome of our second hotel exp. What a delightful surprise!! We were impressed. Pros: Helpful staff. Spacious rooms and bathrooms. Great breakfast room location (rooftop) and a great array of food to choice from. Central...

Choices for hotels in the city are extremely limited, and the Elite is one of the better ones. It's a short walk to the central train station, and the staff are friendly enough for a Swiss hotel. However, the rooms are a bit dated, though the toilets are obviously new. Rooms facing the street are noisy at night though, from...

Has just been updated and still offers reasonable price/quality relationship right in the centre of Biel/Bienne. Room was quite good size but still a little spartan in decoration. Breakfast room hadn't been reburbished when I stayed there, so they used a small meeting room upstairs. Choice and quality wasn't that great. By Swiss standards, personnel were quite friendly.

The Art Deco Hotel Elite has been undergoing some improvements since my last visit in November 2015. Where during my last visit breakfast was served at a cosy makeshift restaurant, Now there is a beautiful breakfast area on the 6th level with a great view over Biel/Bienne. In my opinion this area would also be very suitable to have some...
