“Top notch in Ghent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 via mobile

The Reylof is located just outside the historic centre - a couple of minutes walk to St Michaels Bridge on rather a tatty street with lots of renovation going on. The hotel itself looks splendid though and once through the front door it is truly magnificent. A real successful blend of old and contemporary.

Check in was efficient and fast. Our 'cosy' room was spacious and well appointed with a nice quality marble bathroom. The room, along with all the public areas was spotless.

Breakfast could not be faulted - great choice and great service.

The garden was also pleasant and the spa area looked great although we didn't use it.

All in all a highly recommended hotel that offers stylish accommodation and a great quality feel.

It's the perfect place in the perfect city. 5 minutes walking distance from downtown. A beautiful Hotel with the best staff. I asked for several things and they helped me with everything. It's a 4 star Hotel but could easily be a 5. We went on a trip to Belgium, to Brussels, Brugges and Gent and this Hotel was our main base. Gent is beautiful and this Hotel makes it even better. It's a pleasure to recommend this Hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a garden room. They are perfect and quiet. If you can get an appartment, better.

This hotel is a short taxi ride from the train station (8.50 Euro). The staff I encountered were helpful and pleasant, willing to answer questions about the hotel and Ghent area. The city center is an easy walk for dining and shopping.

It is nice to have a balcony to sit on in the morning/evening. The complimentary wifi worked flawlessly and was adequate for my business needs (email/browsing).

The staff called for a taxi for each morning (this was a business visit).

This is not a plain or boring place to stay. See the pictures on the hotel website or here.

Room Tip: I had room 447, which is away from the elevator towards the end of the hallway. This was a quiet lo...

We stayed the four of us in two standard rooms in the hotel, they were comfortable and great. Very nice beds, good bathrooms, wehe you can shut the toiletdoor, and quiet at night.
The hotel facilities are fine: bathrobes and slippers to walk to the gym, the pool or the sauna, which are located in a nice buildign in the garden. The hotel is renovated in a good mix of old and modern. The sitting area's downstairs are nicely decorated and inviting to sit. We didn't use breakfast there, thougt it was too expensive, but it looked very good. We ate in one of the many coffee & breadcafe's in the neidgboorhood. Gent is lovely to stroll around and the hotel is nearly in the centre, a few minutes walk from St. Michaelsbridge.

Highly recommend this Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof!!
Stayed in the beautiful original renovated historic building for three nights. As the other reviewers have said, the cocktail lounge is beautiful and cozy. Thierry, the awesome bartender in the cocktail lounge, makes excellent tasting cocktails such as a "Forbidden Fruit" and "Lady Killer".
As for giving excellent customer service, Nikolaas De Boot (Front Ofc Mgr), Gie, Laura and a few others went above and beyond during our stay. Location of the hotel is perfect.

Room Tip: Choose a room in the original building.

It was again a pleasure to be guests in this beautiful modern decorated historic hotel in the centre of this nice old city Gent. It is amazing how the staff makes you feel you are VIP's.
This time we were visiting Sandton for the weekend with our 3 teenagers and even they said this hotel was special! They liked the rooms, the beds, the beautiful decoration, the nice bathrooms etc., etc. Like we did.
This hotel tries had to make you feel you're home. And they succeed!
Our stay was splendid!

Room Tip: The rooms in the old part of the complex a very very nice!

Good hotel with somewhat odd layout and colorsettings in hallways. Good service and a magnificent breakfast buffet. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Hotel is situated in center of Ghent near the historic area.
