Hotel Amigo, Brussels

Rocco Forte's Hotel Amigo, Brussels*****

A charming base in the heart of Brussels

The architecture and welcoming atmosphere of the Hotel Amigo, together with its privileged position right in the heart of Brussels, places it firmly in the great tradition of the hotel industry, where the great of this world, notables, stars, businessmen and informed tourists have been hosted. Just one step from the famous Grand'Place, the red brick façade of the hotel built in Spanish Renaissance style, fits perfectly into the architectural past and present of its surroundings.

Historic artefacts displayed on the premises include canvases from famous artists such as Courtens, Dansaert and Wagemans together with paintings by the Dutch and Italian schools. Flemish wall tapestries from the 18th century and the authentic paving stones in the lobby, which were originally used in the surrounding streets, help create the special charm and character of this place.

Hotel Amigo's 154 rooms and 19 suites have been completely refurbished by Olga Polizzi in a contemporary style. All of the bedrooms and suites are extremely comfortable with modern furniture and soft natural hues enhanced with touches of red, blue and green. Good-sized bathrooms contain mosaic details in red or green to match their marble vanity tops, and figures of Hergé's characters Tintin, Snowy the dog and Captain Haddock enliven the walls with a touch of humour.

Ristorante Bocconi

Awarded "The Best Italian Restaurant of Brussels" by Delta in 2007 the Bocconi is popular with locals, guests and celebrities alike as it offers a relaxed and sophisticated escape from the hustle and bustle of the surrounding streets for a light lunch or gastronomic dinner.

Amigo Bar

Spilling into the lobby lounge, the Amigo Bar has a more modern feel than the rest of the hotel. This modern bar, with its red and green leather chairs and banquettes, offers a discreet and relaxing environment. The Amigo Bar is the place to meet for an aperitif or to sample the impressive list of whiskies and cognacs, while enjoying relaxing music in the background.
