Satisfied. Felt content.
nothing to refer about
*my tipmy dutch-knowledges are near to nothing
In need of improvement, but brilliantly located
Rooms in very basic condition. Heavy lamp over the bed appeared to be hanging very loosely - I ended up moving the bed. No hand soap in toilet - only toilettry provided was gel in the shower but the container was almost blocked. Some black patches in shower rim. At times, the internet was dead slow - not great for business travelers. Overall, the price/quality appears low.
Having said all this, the service was very polite and attentive and the location is really very good. So, the hotel is wo
I would only stay at Hotel des Colonies if i had nowhere else to stay.
I was robbed of a laptop, mobile phone and digital camera from my room no. 206 on tuesday 21st June 2011 during the afternoon while i was out of the hotel. There was no break in into the room. My conviction is that it was either the hotel house keeping staff or they abetted the robbery. I was advised to report to Police which i did and the matter is still under investigation.

Long gone glory.
This hotel was beautiful long time ago but unfortunately needs an urgent renovation to bring it back to its long gone glory.
Hotel is clean, carpet in good condition breakfast is good.
I think for the price paid I could have got a better hotel.
I will not return.

Good facilities in a different atmospheer
Good facilities, reasonable price, location close to Grae du Nord, direction of Centre (metro).
Nice thing for me is that atmospheer is not middle of the road.
very nice hotel
a bit of a walk from the center

Rooms clean, staff friendly, good location, decent price
Baby cot included in price
Hotel needs a facelift, carpets worn, tiles in bathroom cracked
Breakfast not great
The hotel is located only three blocks from the Gare Nord. The price was very reasonable and the quality of the service was good. The desk clerks were very friendly and helpful. The room was clean and comfortable.
Excellent value, clean, quiet, OK, no real room with a view however not much to see when its dark anyway!
A little old fashioned, some may consider this a plus point!
Very good breakfast available. Quiet, convenient location. Friendly desk staff.
