Hôtel Siru3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The entrance was via Hotel des Colonies. They are under-staffed at breakfast, so it is hard to find a clean table. The levator is a disaster: very slow, out-dated. The room is OK but no AC and it was 33 degrees.
Hotel Siru is located right behind the closed down Sheraton Hotel. The location is very central and good for sightseeing and shopping. Very close to the train station,Hilton and City 2 Mall. The rooms are relatively small but very clean. The staff is nice and friendly. Rack rate is quite pocket friendly given the central location. Only 2 drawbacks; the breakfast leaves more to be desired and you can hear whatever is going on in the bathroom upstairs in the room. Apart from that, I wouldn't mind recommending this establishment to anyone travelling on a budget. The reservations staff is quick to respond to reservation queries and always eager to assist.
This is the second time i stayed in Hotel Siru. Same remarks pretty much: nice american breakfast, friendly and helpful staff, nice view to Rogier square. It is a good and economic choice for someone visiting briefly Brussels and wishes to stay close to the city center.
Picked the hotel because of closeness to a meeting venue but think it was also a great choice of location to get into town. You can walk on a straight line through 2 huge shopping malls and pedestrian shopping street into town. Just small deviations west and east from the bottom of this will bring you into great restaurant quarters, the grand place and the Manneken pis. All in reasonable walking distance. There are waffle and praline shops everywhere. Not too far to the palace either. Metro station is just across the road from the hotel, too. Taxi to the airport will set you back around 50€, but the north train station is at the back of the hotel, where you can catch a train to the airport, takes 15-20 min ride. Hotel itself is merged with the Colonial Hotel next door. Both show their age, so don't expect anything fancy. But I didn't want to downmark too much as I still think it's quirky and I would come back for that price. Here some things that could be improved: WiFi is free but not the best quality, mini fridge in room was empty (ok), but not even plugged in to cool own things, there are only 2 electrical sockets in the room, one from the fridge, one hard too reach under a table. None near the beds. Another socket in the bathroom that only works when the light is on (really?), so charging your phone, laptop and battery pack simultaneously means the bathroom light was on the whole night. The decor of rooms, corridors and breakfast room (which is the grand hall of the Colonial style Colonial Hotel, speaking of quirky) show age and are a bit dated, as was the bathroom (some chips in types and tub). Supply of shower gel soap and that obligatory sewing kit (really? Who uses that?), but no other freebies. I was also surprised that when I returned on the first day at around 1:30 pm the room hadn't been made/ attended to. Breakfast has goid bread and pastry, with a very limited selection of cheese and cold meat, scrambled egg only and bacon that I cannot recoonend. Jams and coffee are great though. Again, as said, if you don't expect any more than the basics, this is a good place to explore the city, but it clearly has it's best times behind it. Somehow that still didn't bother me too much.
Very well located next to commercial areas and very close to city center, very well connected. Excelent offers, so easy to find great prices. Good services, confortable room (no luxuries but very pleasent). Extremely helpfull personnel.
Due to road constructions, the entrance was through an other hotel, but no problem with that. The room was very-very small, with basic equipment. The plumbing (water, WC, shower) was very loud/noisy, I could hear all my neighbors in the morning. To go downstairs I tried the stairs, and I got scared because I could not "exit" the staircase, not even with my door-opening-card, just only at the lowest floor (and the numbering was also strange). The breakfast seems correct, but you should find the plates and spoons and forks, they are well hidden... The metro station is very close, the neighborhood is... well, be careful...
An interesting hotel with history but little else. During my stay the lift broke. My room was on the 6th floor and the lift was the only access. Being 73 years old with asthma this was not great. It would have been a problem also for anyone with heavy luggage or small children. The staff were indifferent to the problem. I will not stay here again. njdl
Good location, nice hall but apart from this rooms are small and bathroom narrow even though comfortable enough for a short stay. But honestly people are not nice and polite, lift is annoying, slow and the only way to access the floors: it took 20 mins to go up in the morning! No smiles nor collaborative people many complications for small issues. It is not a bad hotel but for that price i would not book it.
VERY GOOD SERVICE, VERY CLEAN. Located in Place Rogier close to the North Station, around 7 minute walk. Offers a very good breakfast and the double rooms are spacious quiet and the upholstery very clean.
Probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. This was my first time in Brussels and in Belgium, the price was reasonable for the room, though don't go expecting to be able to make your own tea or coffee as there is not kettle available in these rooms. Sadly the customer service delivered, when my friend and I asked about there being a restaurant in the hotel, we received a rude grunt from an employee who seemed offended that we had even asked. Also the price of an appalling breakfast is not worth anyone's time or money. €15 each (every morning) for an extremely basic continental breakfast, which to be frank I have paid fare less in pounds in a 4 star hotel for an excellent cooked breakfast and continental (we were thankful we only paid for one morning). We were also pestered by the cleaners on more than one occasion when we were getting ready to see the sights for the day, the cleaners insisted on coming in the rooms to make the beds and change the toilet roll and make us leave the rooms while they did so. We found this incredibly rude and because they couldn't speak English, they wouldn't just give us more toilet roll and be on their way. Also when we left the hotel, the cleaners went straight into our room and started hysterically shouting and what little mess we had left, knowing we where still in the hallway. Overall I would never stay here again would I would never recommend this hotel when there where so many much lovelier hotels to choose from.
