Innovative luxury boutique hotel concept opens its doors in Ghent

Pillows Grand Hotel Reylof

A boutique hotel isn't only about the number of rooms, the decor or certain standards. In a boutique hotel it's all about an exceptional personal service and a state of mind which comes alive by giving guests never-to-be-forgotten experiences. This is a philosophy which is very dear to Pillows Hotels and forms the basis of success for the hotel collection. Every Pillows Hotel is different but the things they all have in common are: charming authenticity, a modest chic interior and unforgettable memories.

One step through the doors of the beautiful renovated Pillows Grand Hotel Reylof feels like coming home. The Pillows Hotels team and Lot Sturm, interior architect, made this hotel a warm welcoming and inspiring place in the heart of Ghent. While your car is safely parked, the imposing spiral staircase brings you to the Living, the heart of the hotel, where relaxing and All Day Dining are key. This is also the place where a Pillows-host welcomes you and informs you about the hotel and Ghent city centre.

About Pillows Hotels

The boutique hotel label Pillows Hotels, part of the International Hotel Management Group, originated from the thought and conviction that a hotel shouldn’t be a room factory, but a community where guests stay in a homely and personal environment. Where the guest decides when he eats and where he has the choice from a full meal to small dishes, and several (healthy) snacks throughout the day or night: clock less eating (24/7). The three already opened Pillows Hotels in Amsterdam, Brussels and Zwolle (NL) receive favorable reviews from their guests. Pillows Grand Hotel Place Rouppe opened its doors on the 8th of September 2017 and was voted best hotel in Brussels by TripAdvisor in January 2018. Since the 6th of October 2018, the Pillows Grand Hotel Reylof in Ghent welcomes its guest and in 2020 Pillows Amsterdam Mauritskade will open its doors.
