Why We Love This Hotel
- "First choice of film stars and presidents" (The Daily Telegraph)
- The location is superb, right beside the Grand Place
- Highly trained staff are faultlessly polite
- This former prison now has super-stylish décor by Olga Polizzi
The "first choice of business moguls, film stars and presidents" (The Daily Telegraph) visiting Brussels, the Hotel Amigo is well suited to those willing to splash out for the subtle, stylish luxury on offer. Equally, the location can’t be outdone. It’s peaceful and perfectly placed for sightseeing, set on a little street behind the Grand Place, a UNESCO site and the main square in Brussels.
Rather ironically, the hotel owes its name to its past life as a prison or 'vrunt' (in the local Flemish) in the 1500s. The Spanish rulers at the time took the word to mean 'vriend' or 'amigo', and the name has stuck ever since.
Eschewing a bland look, the Rocco Forte property has locally sourced fittings and fixtures and the understated but characterful décor is courtesy of Forte’s sister, Olga Polizzi. Rooms are large, with marbled bathrooms and quirky pieces such as surreally carved fruit figurines. Of several themed suites, the Tin Tin suite is among the most popular, with original artwork from the Hergé Foundation emphasising the character’s Brussels connection. The Armand Blaton is the royal or presidential suite, with a large rooftop terrace.
Restaurant Bocconi serves a generous breakfast buffet and fine Italian food, in a nod to the Amigo’s Italian ownership. There’s also a stylish bar and lounge at ground level and a relatively basic gym, with no pool but plenty of fitness equipment. Throughout the hotel, "faultlessly polite, besuited staff" (Lonely Planet) are well-trained in anticipating guests’ wishes.
