    My Dufour

    Hotel is accessible and centrally located to Ville de Biel/Bienne. Close to Biel/Bieene main train station, shopping center/stores and easy access to city main transport system and services. Good hearty breakfast is served each morning. A bit hot and humid during the day but at night it is very pleasant. Hotel management and service is excellent except for laundry services which definitely needs to improvement.

    Clean, comfortable, good deal, no "bells&whistles"

    We stayed at Hotel Dufour in Biel while visiting Switzerland for our daughter's wedding. The hotel was clean and comfortable, however there isn't a night receptionist so make sure you take the night door key with you whenever you leave in case you don't make it back in time. The breakfast was a basic european breakfast, and sometimes the hallways smelled a bit like curry (there is an indian restaurant below the hotel) but it wasn't a problem for us as the actual room didn't smell and was very clean. overall, it was a pleasant stay and a good deal for the price compared to some of the other hotels in Biel. We would definitely stay there again.

    Close to the city centre

    Small hotel with small rooms. Typical Swiss twin mattress double bed. High price for a basic room.

    hotel dufour

    what i liked the most about this hotel is its location in Bienne where it is close to the various companies and also to the train station which facilitates transportation for tourists. The building is new and its in a quiet area. The staff were cooperative and nice.. They also offered a very good breakfast :)
