My room was quite small and with old forniture, but with all the features you look for when you're traveling (even the boiler for a nice cup of tea). Breakfast was very good. I've not tried the restaurant cause I preferred to try the close one (just few meters) that was very good.

Plus is free parking,big room and very good breakfast but girl on reception was not very friendly. This is first hotel where we did not feel welcome:( Hotel is old fashioned needs a lot of modernising. Close to train station and center of town.

I booked this hotel because I needed good parking(free). This is a typical BW hotel. No curb appeal but it is just 5 minutes to the trains and 10 minutes to shopping and dining. Room was clean. Safe didn't work, no mini fridge. Wifi is free and works well. Breakfast was well done. Standard European fare. Coffee maker in room.

Not great. It is all a bit depressing, aparently the rooms were all recently redecorated! Well if they were it was done on a very strict budget that is all I can say. Okay, the room was clean and functional and it will do for two nights. The bathroom has been painted, even the ceramic tiles were painted? I had... More

Having in mind good experience of Best Western hotels in the US about 30 years ago I was looking forward to a nice night in this hotel overlooking the lake. Don't think anything had changed since the last 30 years. Old fashioned, very basic, but clean. The price was reasonable at 112 Swiss Francs including parking, although the overflow parking... More

The hotel is very very close to the train station and right between Bien and Nidau, so that you can have a two minutes walk to go to both the places. The staff is very friendly and you feel strongly that, despite the bad appearance, the hotel is part of an important international chain. My room was a single one,... More

We overnighted in Biel last weekend, and were looking for an economic option for just one night. The Continental is located only 10 min from the lake, easy to find, and has a free parking lot behind the building. It seems they were pretty booked, as there was just a crowd of people gathering in the lobby when we arrived.... More
