“Average stay.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2010

I stayed at the Swiss Olympic House for one night. I was there for a business meeting and the hotel served well enough for that purpose. My room was old and old-fashioned.

The bathroom is of average size but the shower cabin is tiny. The provided soap and shower lotion was fantastic, great quality and very generous portions.

The best of the stay was the view. You get a great view over the area of Bienne and the lake. It's really quite stunning and very impressive. I went for an early-morning run and the area around the hotel is well equipped with race tracks and nice trails through the forest of the village.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2008

I stayed at this hotel, formerly the Hotel Forum Post, which has recently been renamed the Hotel Swiss Olympic House, for 2 nights while attending a company seminar in the same hotel.

The meeting facilities are excellent - well equipped and professional.

The rooms, although clean and functional are very basic. My room had a tiny single bed, there is a TV and desk, small bathroom - and that's it. No phone, no safe, very little furniture.

The bathroom is tiny, no light in the shower, and I was provided with one small bar of soap and a tiny sachet of shampoo, which were not replenished on the second day.

Functional - maybe, 5 star - certainly not!!

  • Liked — Nice location and views
  • Disliked — Basic rooms, no gym, limited facilities
