Luxury Hotel Amigo In Brussels, Germany
Near the center of Brussels, Belgium sits Grand Place, a market square surrounded by nearly forty buildings dating back to as early as the 14th century. Home to markets, festivals, and other events for hundreds of years, the architecturally stunning Grand Place is a must-see landmark for anyone hoping to cross a vacation to Brussels off their bucket list.
Just steps away from Grand Place, on Rue de l’Amigo, lies one of the best hotels in Brussels, Hotel Amigo. Built nearly 500 years ago, the building the Hotel Amigo calls home is steeped in rich history. Originally used as a prison, the hotel was brilliantly redesigned and renovated in 1957 to open as a hotel to celebrate Brussel’s hosting of the 1958 World’s Fair. Rocco Forte Hotels has continued its loving restoration and has carefully preserved the remarkable historic elements of the building. In fact, the incredible cobblestone flooring found in the hotel lobby dates back to the year 620 A.D.
Hotel Amigo has 154 guest rooms and suites, all beautifully decorated and grandly appointed. But to experience all the luxuries this five star hotel has to offer, a stay in one of their 19 exquisite suites is a must. The Rene Magritte Suite is an homage to one of Belgium’s most famous artists. Decorated with original lithographs and the vibrant hues favored by Magritte, this stunning suite would be a vacation highlight. But easily the most impressive guest quarters in Hotel Amigo is the Armand Blaton Suite. Named for the hotel’s founder, this suite is the epitome of luxury. It features a large outdoor terrace and a private kitchen, it is decorated with art from the Blaton family’s private collection.
All suites guests receive the amenities Rocco Forte five star hotels are known for, including a personalized concierge, packing and unpacking service and a full in-room bar. In keeping with the passion for the fine arts so evident throughout Brussels, as an extra perk, suite guests also receive complimentary tickets to the BOZAR Center for Fine Arts, one of the most world-renowned cultural sites that is on every art lover’s bucket list. And, as with all Rocco Forte Hotel suite guests traveling with children, a stuffed Rene the Squirrel will be gifted during their visit.
The Hotel Amigo has two on-site restaurants, Ristorante BoCConi and Bar A. Ristorante BoCConi offers a classic, rustic Italian menu designed by celebrity chef Fulvio Pierangelini. These sumptuous dishes can be enjoyed inside the restaurant or al fresco on the Hotel Amigo’s terrace. In Bar A, guests can enjoy a light Italian meal and enjoy some of the many low calorie cocktails perfected in-house. In addition, Bar A also features a special menu designed especially for Rocco Forte Nourish. Developed in collaboration with Pascale Naessens, one of the world’s experts on nutrition and health, Rocco Forte Nourish focuses on maintaining body wellness while traveling.
Hotel Amigo’s location in the heart of Brussels and its proximity to the financial district make it a prime location for meetings, with a banquet area capable of hosting 120 friends. Its historic and romantic setting, the hotel is also a wonderful choice for a luxurious destination wedding. With stunning outdoor photographs in the Grand Place and a backdrop of the hotel’s authentic Aubusson tapestry, the memories of a Hotel Amigo wedding would delight any bride and groom for years to come.
