Good hygiene. You can use the washing machine for free, too. Free WIFI. Breakfast acceptable. The women from the staff are supportive, but they often go out to smoke. If your room faces the courtyard (which is more expensive), if your window is open you can easily get the smoke of the people who have to go out to smoke. The windows are very low on the pavement.
The hotel is very clean and functional. The beds are very comfortable. It is in a quiet area 5-10 minutes work from Solothurn centre. On arrival at the hotel there was nobody at reception and I could not enter the hotel. Luckily my friend who spoke Swiss/German was able to read a sign and make a phone call to punch in a keypad number and retrieve a key ( although it was different to the room I booked). The keys are then extremely difficult to use with the door locks, and many times I gave up and didn't bother to lock the door.Breakfast is very basic by European standards and I have encountered far better on recent travels.
Light, bright, comfortable room. Very good breakfasts. Amazing 400 plus tv/radio stations. Very clean. No complaints and even happy with 9 minute walk into town from hotel
Carpark just behind hotel; buffet breakfast; kettle in room. View onto a building site and noisy during daytime. No way of opening the window, therefore stuffy room.
The lake behind the hotel
Friendliness of staff, free internet access, good food, welcome drink on the house. Noise from the street.
Close to train station and lake, excellent breakfast, key also worked for front door, helpful staff, my window and curtain opened fine, quiet.
feel welcome / location of the Hotel / free parking no international plug / no free WIFI / hotel is clean but need renovation
The room was very spacious and comfortable. Rooms were slightly dated.
room was clean, breakfast was very nice, staff was friendly
Air conditioning would improve the status of the hotel.
old interior and very noisy
Very friendly staff at reception and restaurant, free possible parking and good breakfast included. In case of elder people taking a shower, they have to step into the bath.
The breakfasts were good. They had a goo variety of food, and they were swiftly and pleasantly served. It was a little difficult to communicate. Not everyone spoke English.
friendly staff who helped us as Booking.com cocked the number of rooms up!! location from Berne - indicated 15km on brochure, in fact 35km
The bed was not too comfortable.
A nice hotel with very friendly staff, just a litle bit expensive but I understand Switzerland is in general an expensive country.
Best value for money There is no parking at the hotel.You must pay the city parking which is 2 swiss francs/hour and you should go every 2 hours to put the coin in the parking machine.
fast internet the hotel needs renovation: my room window did not close, very noisy.my shutters did not close
internet, the room, breakfest parkingplace
Friendly, helpful receptionists with good English. Quite near the old city and breakfast was good.
Poor mattress, poor bathroom facilities
Pleasant interior spaces. Breakfast buffet was good, not extensive choice but fresh. Noisy. We had requested a non-smoking room. At check-in we were not told that we'd been given a smoking room. It stank. We asked to be changed, Reception told us that though a non-smoking room was available, we had already had occupation of a room, and that no staff were on hand to check it if we vacated it !!!! It was too late in the day to seek alternative accommodation. There was no apology.
drinks and internet free, excellent location, historic building, nicely renovated, river view lobby doesn't open until 2pm, staff came late but was very apologetic
Very interesting, historical building with a modern contemperary interior. Only to cross the bridge on foot to reach the Altstadt. Underground parking at a stone's throw and access to the motorway in 2 minutes. Noise of trains driving by regularly. But in Switzerland trains are never far away...
safety box with as automatic reception for key narrow stairs - not presented elevator
Good room overlooking the Aare. Receptionist helpful and restaurant excellent.Breakfast OK but not a wide choice.
Nice view, friendly stuff, very good breakfast, free internet access. It could be a bit cheaper
Beautiful location next to the river.
Location is good. Special ambiance. Drinks/Fruit/Coffee available for guest. There was no staff present. You needed to call a number to get a code to access your room key in a deposit box. This was't a problem, just a bit unusual.
Great location for aviation freaks - unfriendly staff :(
clean room, low cost room was too hot but luckily not too much noise from road and airfield
Location and access - Clean - Staff
Easy to find and good connection to the motorway. Comfortable and quite rooms, good breakfast and a restaurant in the hotel No airconditioning in the rooms. After 23:00 the reception is not staffed anymore
Modern, clean Hotel
The staff were very welcoming and helpful
Nice, modern rooms, decent restaurant. During early morning and evening hours there can be noise from small aircraft. I personally don't mind (I enjoy watching the activity) but others might. Not a problem at night, when flying is usually prohibited in Switzerland.
It was one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed at. Very lovely location, the staff very helpful and accommodating very clean, nothing I could change, it was just perfect.
The cogffe shop behind the reception : a gas chamber from the over numerous smokers.
staff at the hotel was not very helpful when we had questions
Good Room. Value for money food. Convenient for both stations Church bells during night
Staff being helpful
large comfortable room
the multi lenguaje the service and frenly atmosfera
Handy location for walking about town and also close to other restaurants. No parking facilities. Only long term parking was at the station.
Nice location, pleasant people Very smokey. However rooms did not smell
the staff were very friendly rooms very adequate meals at the bar next door very good
Room was big enough Miserable, very very poor bad
the hotel was situated nice and close to the city for shopping and supermarket and there was secure parking for the car We chose this hotel because it had kitchen but the kitchen was bare and it cost 50 francs to hire plates, cutlery and pots etc. There was no mention of this on the website. The breakfast standard was quite poor
Peaceful location (courtside)
Close to center of the city
Nothing - shabby, depressing and extremely noisy due to the main road on which it's placed. Awful breakfast. I particularly did not like the fact that the hotel claimed to have no knowledge of my online booking.
Room size Information misleading - there is no park opposite and this was a reason for booking, thinking this would result in a nice outlook. Instead we felt very uncomfortable in hotel vicinity as hotel and vicinity covered in grafitti. Park is nothing more than some grass and a couple of seats which is around the corner and not opposite the hotel. The balcony has asbestos sheeting. Decor - 70's & poor.
it was close to the city centre and free wifi internet acces it was old fashioned, breakfast minimal and it smell like diesel fuel from the central heating furnace in all the coridors
extremely helpful and friendly staff
good pizzeria near bye
Old fashion & quality of the breakfast
clean, calm, nice room, good value restaurant closed, no possibility to get water and snack (no minibar)
The restaurant in the hotel was closed! I did not get this information in advance. The only restaurant was 5 km away.
the food was nice and the price reasonable.the room as a good size and clean.But on the 2nd floor and no help or lifts to take the bags up to the room. No room service.
The Hotel is located in a lovely hilly surrounding. A very quiet and pleasant place to stay. The Hotel wasn't very clean in itself, since a family lives around. However the room cleanliness was acceptable. Maybe this was due to we being at the place in the low season.
we were welcomed like family and given 5 star treatment the owners are really very special people and their kindness knows no bounds you must have your own transport
The location of the hotel, although well away from any of the main tourist spots was perfect for our purposes. Neuchatel and Interlaken are both within easy reach and Lake Geneva is less than an hour away by car. The drive up to the hotel gives beautiful views across Lake Neuchatel. While we did not eat dinner at the hotel, the atmosphere in the bar was good. To get to our rooms, we had to pass through the proprietor's living quarters which were in quite an untidy state and a little off-putting. This did not give a good first impression but, once we saw how good our rooms were, those first impressions were soon forgotten.
Good situation Room was very small. Fitness room had very few equipment. Breakfast was expensive.
Nice staff and room confort It was not information about how to contact the reception by phone
Good helpfull staff who tried hard to be .The location of the hotel was convenient for the centre of town but also quite close to the lake . Parking was a bit difficult to locate.The hotel was on a busy street and a bit noisy at night.
Loud music from the club below
Very nice room; excellent breakfest
Room was nice and clean. Breakfast was good. Room was small. We had booked froom for 2 adults + 2 children but when we arrived they said they have no suitable rooms so had to hastily squeeze a sofa bed in our room which made it a bit tight for space and the kids had to share a bed. I was given a different meal from what I had ordered when we dined in the restaurant. It took a long time for the right meal to come.
It is the best hotel in Biel, but that doesn't mean much as in general hotel standards in Biel are not that high... Small room and smaller bathroom
Location. Staff not particularly friendly. Restaurant closed every weekend. Room service but no room service menu to order breakfast...staff very unhelpful concerning this. Pillows and duvet synthetic so very hot. Room hot even when heater turned off. Have to pay for wi-fi in the rooms.
Staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Beautiful rooms, comfortable beds. Great location next to the canal, which was very convenient. Free outside parking. An excellent value overall. WiFi, although free in public areas, costs CHF 25. per night extra in the rooms, which seems a bit steep.
Ramada is well located, moderate in price, very clean and comfortable. I recommend it mostly for buusiness people or those who want to visit the town and the local area. The architecture is unique.It is ultra modern among the more traditional type of architecture
I have stayed there a number of times. Staff are always very friendly and helpful. The rooms are small-ish but very comfortable and clean Public computer in entrance hall never seems to work.
location of hotel was excellent
Clean, high quality design. Very nice room. Quiet. Food & drinks + service match room quality. No,
Air conditioning and WiFi worked well. Free parking in front. Great location and pleasant view across the river. Good food. A well designed modern building. Breakfast was expensive.
very nice SPA
Helpful reception, proximity to centre. The room though smallish was very comfortable, and we slept well. Good view of the river. How do you describe something you don't like, without it being a form of complaint ? We found the current roadworks in Solothurn called for some initiative on finding how to arrive. On question (below) about guest reviews, can't remember what they said, but we expected Ramada to be ok. We stayed in Solothurn as being in easy reach of Basel for a one day visit.
It was clean efficient, pleasant staff. Ice was not readily available
I give this hotel a 2 star because of its great location, stunning views, and parking situation. At first sight the hotel is stunning, and parking was always available nearby. But that is as it good as it gets. Our room was small and Still had wet floors in the bathroom from the cleaning service. Also, do yourself a favor and skip breakfast, for 25 Fr you get a limited choice of breads and a boiled egg. On both occassion's we asked for scrambled eggs and after an hour they never came out. I spoke to the front desk and her response was 'sorry, I will let the manager know'. Needless to say they didn't do anything about it on the second day. Furthermore, my friend paid for the hotel suite, and when he asked to get another room due to the Air conditioning being broken. They responded by putting him in a room the size of a closet and simply said 'sorry'. While my other friends suite was unavailable at checkin since they 'overbooked' the hotel. So out of our large group that stayed here, over 80% were dissatisfied
the well being floor was a great benefit.
Clean and quite room, good working wifi, friendly people at the reception and in the restaurant. The breakfast, although of good quality and with an extensive choice, is too expensive : 50 chf (= 36€). I do not think that this price was mentioned somewhere in advance.
Tidy, simple and comfortable. Friendly and helpful staff. Definitely deserves its four stars!
Very close to railway station, and close to the shopping area. Several bars and restaurants nearby.
The hotel is located near a railway station and a place of my bussiness meeting The quality of room is average
the room, the value for money, the location was fantastic
Very clean and convenient. Less than 5 minutes walk from the train station, plenty of choice for shopping and food around. Quiet room and comfortable bed. High quality breakfast. The only think I missed was a fitness room.
Efficient service, no fuss, good breakfast. I did not expect the hotel to debit my card as soon as the reservation was made with booking.com - I expected to pay while I was there. Not a problem though.
Friendly people, clean, nicely arranged, good breakfast It was too hot in the room.
They had no on site car parking. Parking 1 mile away at the train station was not acceptable
Customer service, cleanliness Bar underneath that played music late at night
Excellent location being 2 minutes from the old town and 1 minute from the main train station. Very helpful and friendly staff. DVD player in each room with no charge for DVDs (and you don't see that very often). WIFI access in-room usually plays a significant role in my decision for a hotel for business trips. This time it wasn't necessary but could be a factor in the future.
Quite hotel. Internet free. Parking place (limited) Nothing
Location: 200 metres from Solothurn old town, and 100 from the station shd you come by train. Very quiet and nice street, good parking in the hotel's courtyard, very friendly staff. A Swiss garni as it shd be, in probably the most beautiful and surely the most elegant Swiss town.
We stayed 5 nights in July 2010 during the opera fesitival. We were very pleased and would recommend it highly recognizing the following: The hotel staff spoke good English, was very accomodating and pleasant. The location is excellent w/ just a 3-5 min walk across river to the town center.. The hotel is small and can be likened best to an upscale Bed & Breakfast. They provide a continental breakfast and a limited but small menu that they will prepare anytime during day or evening. They have a small patio in the back where we took most of our meals, a parking area behind the hotel and internet access. If you want value, clean accomodations and a friendly accomodating staff this would be an excellent choice. We encountered no problems during our stay
Friendly, helpful staff. Free WiFi. Very close to train station. Short walk to old town. Only 4 free parking spaces
Its proximity to the town centre and to the customer I was visiting the next day.
Free parking. Nearby the main station.
Clean and renewed hotel. Very easy to find it. The Hotel is really very good hotel but with 3 stars. Arguments: no pay TV, no mini bar, very small restaurant without professional chief cook
very near to solothurn station, good service, ready to help anytime, fantastic Nothing
The staffs are friendly. and helpful The WIFI system is no good. Sometimes the WIFI fail.
