Hotel Siru
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Hotel Siru looks like and is a basic budget hotel, that may have been cutting edge in the 1990's - however it has faded and like most fashion has quickly looked dated and tired.

However the Hotel is clear and tidy and at breakfast you appear to walk from one hotel to another, much nicer hotel with a fantastic breakfast room and bar.

It has a great central location which is minutes from the metro and is ideal for a bargain cheap stay.

Room Tip: Check out the bar and restaurant, much better than the reception would suggests.

Basic but clean and comfortable hotel near gare du nord and rogier metro station, also only 15 min walk to grand place. Staff not unfriendly, bed clean, shower room has soap etc. most importantly, it was quite cheap! Note traffic noise if you are a light sleeper.

The hotel is very well placed with respect to EC premises at Rogier and is also at walking distance from city centre. Recently renovated (?): rather impersonal and unimpressive style. I stayed one night in a double room. Room was quite small but clean and with a comfortable bathroom. Somewhat quirky keycard system for doors and lift. Overall, an adequate solution for a short business trip.

My initial and lasting reaction was negative! The exterior is not great and the lobby smelled musty and old. The decor was surprisingly bad. Not that this should matter, but the holiday decorations were comical. Strands of cheap silver garland were taped up here and there. It looked like a child decorated their lobby. Strange. Initially, at checkin the person at the front desk was not that nice, but then I guess he warmed upto me and he was then very helpful. This was the most positive part of my experience at this hotel, besides an unusually large bathroom. I apologize, one other positive was the close proximity to the main square. We were able to walk there and watch an amazing light show on New Year's Eve. The elevator was tiny. Not uncommon and not a big deal. I hated the room. I slept I am sure a total of 30 minutes the night that I stayed there and I was so glad that it was for only one night. I was worried about the cleanliness of the room. The carpet was visibly filthy and the decor was so cheap. I felt like I was staying in a college dorm room. The television and the telephone did not work. The response was that the phone had to be activated. No one was working that could check out the television. There was a refrigerator but it was unplugged and hot. There wasn't a safe which is something we always look for to store passports etc when we leave the hotel. We paid 150 euro to stay in this hotel, it was New Years Eve, but I still felt like I was ripped off. Someone at the front desk informed my friend the normal rate is 49 Euro. I do not recommend this hotel. I would not ever stay there again.

Dear Susan F,

First of all, I would like to thank you for sharing your stay at the hotel Siru with us on TripAdvisor.

I am sorry to read that your stay was not as what you did expected but I am glad to learn that you enjoyed the location of the hotel which is near the city centre.

All our rooms have a safe. In case you needed to use it, you could have asked the reception and they would have been pleased to give you the key of the safe in order for you to leave your important things.

About the price of 49 Euros, I don’t know who gave you that price because the rate for the rooms at the hotel Siru depend of the season and of the specials events in Brussels.

Despite your experience, we hope to have the pleasure and the luck to welcome you at the hotel Siru during your next stay in Brussels.

Best regards,
Victor Camhis

The hotel is quite basic but if you are looking for something near EC offices than its fine. Average hotel, the lift is not very big so can't get in more than 2 people with suitcases. Hotel was quite clean.

Stayed during November for works trip. Staff always friendly, room clean, but barely space to walk around the beds. No heating in bathroom so that was always freezing, actual room pretty stuffy. Location is good. Price was higher than normal because of an exhibition in city but was better than others in same area. The worst part was breakfast - 15 euro each for a continental choice - after getting stung for that one morning we walked around the corner to a coffee shop and had similar for 15 euro for the 3 of us!
