“Always a pleasure”
Reviewed 19 December 2013

I've stayed here a couple of times by now, and I always love to come back. The hotel is extremely conveniently located - the entire city is within walking distance - and the rooms are all very spacious and comfortable. I even had a large terrace when I stayed there last week. Unfortunately, I wasn't really able to use it much because of, well, winter, but I imagine it to be very nice in spring and summer. However, the real treat of the hotel are the cocktail bar and the restaurant, which is exceptionally refined - by far one of the best places to eat in Ghent, regardless if you stay at the hotel or not. Not surprisingly, the breakfast is a real treat as well. Oh, and you should know that the entire cast and crew of Lars Von Trier's Nymphomaniac stayed here when they were shooting the movie in Ghent. So might actually end up in the same room as Charlotte Gainsbourg, Willem Dafoe or - hey, you can't always be lucky - Shia LaBeouf.

We stayed 2 nights with friends to visit the Christmas markets. Ghent was lovely as always and this hotel is very nicely situated in the city. We picked it because of the good reviews but were rather disappointed with our room (348) which was one of the modern ones (we did ask for an old one) and was very small, but the main problem was it smelt musty and was not 100% clean. The wall paper was peeling off to the right of the bed and it was an unfortunate shade of red. The laminate floor was cold and unwelcoming. There was only one pillow each on the bed. The bathroom and shower (huge) were lovely but there was no conditioner supplied and as I was sure there would be I had not brought any and had frizzy hair on my second day (Grrr). No tea or coffee facilities either.
The corridors smelt of smoke especially just through the door from the bar area and the carpets in the corridors had a great fun carpet on them but it was in need of a deep clean in my opinion (would help to get rid of the smoke smell too). The bar was lovely in the evening though and the breakfast had a fantastic selection of delicious foods.
We had a great trip and will return to Ghent but felt that for the money we paid the hotel rooms should have been far more luxurious.

We stayed one night in Hotel Reylof and the experience was absolutely perfect. We were greeted by a very friendly staff at the check-in. The (standard) room doesn't deserve that name since it very nice, with a loot of space and a great bed! Nothing standard at all!
After a very good 3-course dinner (with great value for money) we walked over to the city center (just 5 minutes away) for a good night out in Ghent. Next day we spend some time in the (complementary) wellness center before we headed off. We are sure to return to Reylof at our next visit in Ghent.

Room Tip: We can recommend the culinary arrangement!

This hotel is good, no complaints, although we found the decor strangely at odds with the beautiful building. This wonderful old building has been treated to the modern makeover, using brightly coloured bold striped carpets, very large print wallpapers all adorned with the 'splash it on' style painted canvasses in the narrow corridors, you then pass into bedrooms painted deep oxblood red with wooden floorings and again the splashy paintings. The whole effect was disturbing and not restful, this lovely old building with its high ceilings and evident history deserved a little more thought. The odd decor does however work quite well in the champagne bar. Ghent is well worth a visit - although if you are driving, as we were, the one way system is a bit of a nightmare not helped by the fact that a lot of the roads were being dug up. We got the Eurotunnel to Calais and drove to Ghent, a really easy run and with 4 of us in the car, also a very cheap way to make the journey (except the last bit in the city itself, for which I would recommend a word with the hotel before you travel to find out if the roads works are finished, and if they are not, ask for a route in to the hotel car park)

We stayed one night in the weekend and we like to go back someday. Hotel looks very nice.
Very friendly people at the reception. We received good advice where to go to have breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Great location, near downtown.
The room is clean and we had a nice balcony too.
We had to pay to park our car in the parking of the hotel.

This stylish hotel is well located for Ghent city centre. The rooms are nicely designed but slightly small. The food in the restaurant is overpriced, but as a hotel it is recommendable. The hotel has a car park which is crucial in a city with very limited parking. The hotel is close to the tram line for those who need to venture out to the railway station or the conference centre.

Absolute brilliant stay and definately recommend this to anyone who is looking for a cosy and romantic getaway (or any type of stay just the same). We stayed in a deluxe-room which was even bigger than we thought, nice and quite on the 3rd floor.
Breakfast was phenomenal with the best crispy bacon and a great selection of hot and cold dishes and even a Belgian cheese platter. A bit busy around 10.30 but they did warn us for this!
Perfect location to explore the centre of Gent as it is only a 5 minute walk away.
reat.
And after a long day walking around the city the spa was most welcome to relax and regain our strength.

Great, friendly and professional service, fantastic food, perfect room and a beautiful setting!

Room Tip: Go Deluxe! Massive room for massive relaxation!
