Hotel rooms need serious renovation. Very small rooms with smelly old carpets and bathrooms in a miserable condition! Breakfast was fine. However, location of the hotel is excellent. Across the street from the Metro and the shopping district.

The hotel has the charms of a European hotel, both in the negative and positive sense. It really needs a make-over: the interior is outdated, walls needs to be painted, tv had only a few channels working, etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful but could not compensate the hotel's drawbacks. The most frustrating element was the malfunctioning wifi.... More

For the price we paid on New Year’s Eve, there are positive things to be said! It’s a rather old building – judging from the message at the hotel entrance, over a century old. It shows its age, but is still more than perfectly fit. The reception is common for both the Des Colonies and the adjoining Siru hotel. The... More

This hotel is a great little little affordable alternative to be within close proximity to everything you can possibly need. If you're coming in from the airport there's a direct train from the lower level to Brussels Nord station for just €8.50 one way. From there it's just a 10 min walk to the hotel (or €4 by taxi).

This hotel has a excellent location, near to walk to the central area or to take a subway to all places to visit. The prices are good to quality and the rooms has a good area, a good bed and the cleaness are good too. To breakfast, maybe the best is take on one of the good cafes near the... More

Hotel des colonies offers you great location (in the city centre). Close to metro and train station, and shopping centre (walking distance). Plenty taxi driver outside the hotel. It is also 20-25 minutes to grand palace central (depending on the traffic). However, the hotel itself is really old hotel. The elevator is a old ones with limited capacity, so you... More

This hotel is very old and it shows. But it is clean inside and the room is very basic. This is not my first visit to the hotel. This time i did not have breakfast as it is not worth the money. There are many shops that you can get something to eat. Staff are friendly. The rooms do not... More

The Hotel is located in the center of town. Gare du Nord is in walking distance. The room was clean. You can feel that it's a big place with many guests. Nevertheless the staff is helping you out - there is no room service - hence you do all by yourself: Like ironing your clothes, getting the hair dryer. At... More

It is a very old style hotel, the room is small but clean, perfect for two person, attached with a mini fridge and a small TV with surprisingly number of channels. It is quiet and the counter staff are friendly enough to answer your... More
