I recently spent 5 days in the Rijckendael Hotel and I will never return. Firstly when we arrived there was nobody at the reception desk. Eventually somebody sauntered in and begrudgingly checked us in. This was the start of many bad accounts with the staff in this hotel. I do not want to spend my time listing them but for... More

Staying at the area is weird at the beginning, as it is residential. It was good as the offices I went were very closed by. The hotel is small with four floors, a resutaurant and what is an always-empty bar. The best was free WiFi, but is is only available at the lobby. The rooms are not so small, but... More

I stayed there many times for a number of years. Great value in a good location, breakfast and parking included, free internet, movies, pants press and clean, but upkeep and maintence is lacking. Probably built as a 4-star and later sold, every visit there are more bangs, dents and scratches. Last visit a few weeks ago, they had conference tables... More

Stayed there Second week of September for a business trip. The hotel is located 10 walking minutes from the tram station Esplanade (although finding it at first is not completely trivial). Overall the hotel is a standard business hotel. I cannot comment on price, as it was booked for me through our office, although I remember hearing that "this one... More

Nice hotel, close to the exhibition "Heysel". They should start to do some renovation works in the hotel and rooms. Make sure to be on time for breakfast, or you will be hungry. The hotel staff is friendly and helpfull.

The hotel itself is clean and the rooms are comfortable. The reception staff are helpful, but are noticeably absent a lot. The Bar is poor by Belgium standards...only having two varieties of Beer in !?
