“Looking forward to visiting again.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

The hotel was well located, only a few minutes walk from the town centre.We only stayed for one night but we were very pleased with the hotel. The staff on reception were very polite and helpful on our arrival. Our room was in the annexe through the garden and it was very well appointed. Breakfast was a buffet with hot and cold options. I am sure we will be making a return visit in the future.

Not only was Ghent a vibrant city, but the Hotel Reylof staff made it shine in my memory. Passport and identity papers were recovered after being left in the safe under an instruction sheet. The first person I spoke with was off the following day, the first chance to check the room following the successive guest's departure. No problem, the next staff person was equally helpful and on top of verifying address and handling the best transit of the documents. Thank you all! Hoping to return to Ghent for more of this city's culture and festivals and will definitely book this hotel for comfort, location and excellent staff at all phases of interaction.

It was my first time staying in Ghent and it's a really nice and picturesque Flemish town. The Hotel is really conveniently situated just on the edge of the town centre - no more than a 5 minute walk (but I tend to walk at pace). Reasonable sized, well appointed room with a large bathroom and walk in shower. All the amenities on hand. It was a bit of a trek from reception to the elevator as the rooms appear to be in a newer part of the building and reception in an older part - there may be rooms in the old part too. Definitely stay there again if ever back in Ghent.

Hotel 30 minutes tram ride from station and 10 to 15 minutes walk to historic centre. Hotel decor is elegant but looking a little tired. The hotel's location is in an area that looked to be a poor part of Ghent. We booked a Charming Room (114) in the main building which was huge and well equipped with a modern bathroom. Bed was uncomfortable. Staff were friendly and courteous. Reasonable value.

I've been to Ghent many times. I've stayed quite a few times at the Marriott, but what an upgrade this was! I stayed in the cheapest option room (which has different names depending on which site you book through). This was a nice sized bright room with a large terrace. Very quiet too. The hotel is modern and staff are friendly. There is a beautiful garden where you can enjoy drinks from the bar. Breakfast is overpriced and nothing special - you're better off having a breakfast at one of the local cafés. We tried the restaurant one evening - the atmosphere is what you can expect from a hotel (not great) with dreadful "hotel music" playing in the background. However, the food was fantastic. For the first time at a hotel I booked a massage - I can really recommend Marjorie, who knows her stuff. I will definitely return to this hotel!

just come back from this hotel and were really disappointed. We booked on line. Room was in the annexe which was a basic apartment block away from the main building. The French Doors opened directly onto a public street so everytime we needed to undress or whatever we had to close the curtains on what was an extremely hot week. Room was small and oddly furnished with mishmash of furniture plus the annexe smelt rather like a Buddhist Temple. I've nothing against that but this is Belguim not Thailand!!!!!!. There was no bulb in the bedside lamp and no corkscrews available to open the complementary water. the only water with a screw cap was part of the mini bar and therefore had to be purchased!!!!!. It was very corporate and it seemed the staff were not interested in the holiday guests, but only in the business travellers. The welness centre had a small pool which you couldn't really seriously swim in. Worst of all though was the feeling of insecurity because of the French Door situation. The doors could be locked and had to be pulled open from the inside. OK aparently someone couldn't actually get in but what was to stop anyone from the street staring at you while you were sleeping or whatever. One evening we had the dubious experience of watching two men fighting right outside our window and another night the local teenage boys held a skateboard tournament again right outside our window!!!! Lovely!!!!! We had to keep the very thick curtains closed all night and had a toss up between noisy air con or stifling heat with drawn curtains. Very disappointed.

Room Tip: Don't book on line. Speak to them direct and book a room in the main hotel. Expect to be ignored...
