wonderful time
I had a lovely time in Biel/Bienne and this was in large part to our stay at Gaestezimmer Plaenke. It was perfect, beautiful, spacious rooms in central Biel so perfect. Alexandra was friendly and lovely. Just a great experience all round. We will definitely return!

Right in heart of Biel/Bienne
This 3rd story apartment was right in the heart of Biel / Bienne and suited us very well. Even though it was on the third story and we had to carry heavy luggage up stairs, it still was value for money. Wifi worked in some parts and it was lucky that our party had the two rooms. Beautiful big bathroom. No air con so we did suffer a wee bit. On the whole a good cheap apartment

Gästezimmer Plänke (Biel) - cozy and hospitable
The Guesthouse provided us (2 people) with a very cozy and roomy mansard with kitchen and separate very big bathroom. It is located in the center of the city within 5 minutes walk from the station, close to a shopping center, 5-min walking distance from bars and cinemas, but at the same time it gives privacy and it's not in a noisy area. It suites the needs of 2 people perfectly. Everything is clean, tidy and in very good condition, and the place has a real human touch. The owners are very open and hospitable people, who support you with everything you need, if it's not yet present in the room. The place's got a coffee-machine (don't forget to press the STOP button though =)), basic set of seasonings, tea, kettle, microwave. Guesthouse provides only 1 room (out of 2) at a time, so that the guests have enough of privacy and comfort. We would definitely recommend the place and will for sure choose Gästezimmer Plänke (Biel/Bienne) as a base again ourselves.
