Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof

 

 Sandton Grand Hotel Reylof that opened its doors last year is a four-star de luxe hotel situated in the heart of the historic city of Ghent (Belgium).

The oldest part of the building is a typical 18th century hotel or town house, built in the FrenchLouis XIV style. Its interior reflects a prestigious Empire style, including a commanding winding stair case and various Empire chimneys. The architect was lord Olivier Reylof (1684-1742), a Gent merchant’s son and adept poet composing Latin poetry.

The original construction request dates from 1724 and it was restored several times.

Since 1990 the town hotel together with the coach house are listed monuments.
