“Not as bad as I had expected”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

I hesitated to book this hotel because other reviews on booking sites were not very good. However, although the carpet in the hallway leading to the bedrooms was shabby and needed replacing the room itself was very neat and clean. The staff on reception were polite and, for an overnight stop, it was largely sufficient.

For English visitors be warned: the hotel brochure promised tea and coffee making facilities available in the room but when I asked at reception they could only provide an electric kettle and the bar only managed to supply two tea bags (no milk, sugar or coffee).

I am reviewing the Hotel as 2 stars not the restaurant/ bar.
Hotel needs a massive renovation, still has 70`s décor, rooms were small and dirty, burn marks on carpet, dusty shelves, bathroom had small saloon type doors that swung and smacked you in the rear as you went in (you could hear other rooms doors swinging during the night). TV was also not up to standard all channels were snowy, (poor reception)
Breakfast was average, watery scrambled eggs, and bacon. Fruit also not up to much.
Restaurant/Bar area had been renovated and was smart with good food.
Lift was also faulty, only room for 2 persons, door had issues when closing, had to use stairs which were also dirty and needing a renovation.
Parking was adequate for size of hotel.
I do see other reviews saying they were in refurbished rooms, please ask for one of them if you stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for renovated room

Stayed here on business for one night in Sept 12.

Room was spacious with air con. Free wifi throughout. Tv in room could be bigger but there were some English Channels.

Food was excellent with the staff being friendly and very helpful. All have a proficient level of English as well as other languages.

Staff were helpful and pleasant, apart from Breakfast lady, who made me feel that she was having a bad week
breakfast somewhat average or below, rooms trying to be modern in their decor but somehow still have that dark old fashioned feel.
Bathrooms better designed with good showers and facilites, however most unpleasant smell in my room from the drains or something.
So not as impressed as some of the other reviewers were.

I had a great stay in Serwir Hotel. They renovated the hotel & I had the opportunity to sleep in one of the renovated rooms (they give me a free upgrade to a deluxe room). The renovated room is great: beautiful bathroom with rainshower, minibar, save, ....

Nice lobby, bar & restaurant!!!

I had the same experience as Mr. Dewilde. The rate in Ibis was higher (breakfast, parking, ....). I was used to go to Ibis, but after His review, I decided to go to Serwir Hotel.

This hotel is situated on the outskirts of Sint-Niklaas. You should definitely come by car if you plan to stay here. It's close to the highway, so a good location if you're on a road trip. There's ample free parking space available on the hotel premises.

Hotel interior looks rather dated, especially the elevators. The rooms themselves were pretty OK, although noise from the hall was a bit of an issue. Free wi-fi available, which is always nice (good speed as well).

Breakfast was brilliant, lots of nice options available so certainly a good start of the day.

I did find the prices rather high, though. One night in a standard room was 100+ euros; I would only come again if the price was right.

This hotel is very well situated for people travelling or having business matters in the larger area of St-Niklaas. It is situated outside of the very city centre, so a car is really to be recommended. The hotel is clean, modern and well kept. It is not topclass, but excellent for its category. The restaurant is reasonable and so are the meeting rooms. We found the staff not to be always the most helpful, but their workload might be the reason for this.
