LOCATION

‘‘Once the home of Baron Olivier de Reylof and now a très chic base for a lovely city trip.’

Vita Di Lusso

Pillows Grand Hotel Reylof is only 500 meters away from the old town. From here it is easy to uncover the excitement of Ghent, spanning everything from ancient castles to quirky markets and jazzy bars.

The Flemish city of Ghent is well known for its gourmet lifestyle. Explore the lively waterside cafes and terraces on the Graslei and Korenlei. Or stroll the cobblestone streets and visit the medieval Gravensteen castle in the midst of the city. To learn more about Ghent’s history, it is worth taking a boat cruise or visiting the STAM museum.

Shopping enthusiasts best visit Ghent for the book, flower and antique markets during weekends. Or, wander around the boutique shops in the pedestrian streets around Veldstraat, St. Jacobs Church and the more exclusive Brabantdam.

Antwerp, Bruges, Brussels and the coast are all within a one-hour drive. Ghent-Sint-Pieters railway station offers direct connections to all major Belgian cities. From the railway station it takes 15 minutes by taxi, or a short tram ride on line 1 to reach the hotel.

Hotel guests can make use of valet parking. The charge for valet parking is €50 per 24 hours and two electric charging stations are available at no additional cost. Alternatively, guests can park their car in the public Ramen parking garage behind the hotel.

Travelling by car? Avoid fines, respect the Low Emission Zone.

From Januari 1, 2020, The whole city centre of Ghent is an LEZ or Low Emission Zone.

This means that many older and more polluting vehicles are banned from entering the city. Check if your vehicle is allowed into the city centre.

Ignoring the LEZ can cost you up to €350 in fines.

Non-Belgian Licence Plate: Register your car!

If your vehicle complies to the requested norms, but you have a non-Belgian license plate, you need to register your car free of charge beforehand, or until one day after entering the Low Emission Zone.

We advise you to do this at least 10 days before arrival, that way you are assured that your registration is confirmed by the LEZ-office before coming to Ghent.

What if my vehicle is too old to enter the city centre?

If your vehicle does not comply to the conditions, you can still enter the city centre legally. You need to buy a one-time LEZ pass (€35). The LEZ day pass grants you access to the low-emission zone on the day of your choice until 6 am the following day. This means you’ll probably need to buy a pass for both the day of arrival and the day of departure.

What if I travel with a non-complient vehicle but don’t want to pay to enter the city centre?

There are free Park & Ride lots right outside the city centre, well connected to the centre by public transport. Some have shuttle busses to the city centre.

We advise the free P+R lot Bourgoyen where you can take bus 38 or 39 and get of at bus stop “Poel”, a 1-minute walk from the hotel.

Another possibility is the free P+R lot at Blaarmeersen, which has a free shuttle bus to Kouter, a 10 minute walk from the hotel. These parking lots are sometimes fully occupied. More P+R’s can be found on the map here.
