Hi Maggie. As for the 10% discount on a Best Western Hotel in Biel with your Swiss Half Fare Card: I'm not sure how this works if you already made your booking. If you haven't paid in advance yet, but plan on paying at the spot, I assume it's enough to show your Swiss Half Fare Card then in order to get the discount. It would be best though to contact the hotel by e-mail or phone (they'll speak English) to make sure. Yes, there's a bus leaving from the railway station of Biel to your hotel. You should get on board of the bus in the direction of Nidau. The trip will take about 10 minutes. You can plan your trip in detail with the Swiss timetable, by filling out the address of your hotel (Aarbergstrasse 29, Biel) as your destination.I hope this helps!
