Hotel Amigo, Brussels

Quintessentially Belgian, Hotel Amigo embodies the spirit of a country dripping in culture, art, gastronomy and heritage. Once a 16th Century prison informally known as ‘Amigo’, today this redbrick heritage building is far from its old shackles. The luxury hotel is an idyllic base for exploring the cultural highlights that Brussels has to offer, presenting 173 chic rooms and suites, sumptuous dining, and an extensive art collection.

Superbly set in the heart of Brussels next to the museums, galleries and sights of the historic city center, you’ll be soaking up the Gothic surroundings from the moment you arrive. Directly next to Hotel Amigo is one of Europe’s most picturesque squares, the Grand Place. Throughout the year it regularly hosts festive and cultural events, including concerts, the bi-annual Flower carpet, as well as Christmas markets and light shows.

YOUR ROOM

The rooms and suites boast light and airy spaces with stylish contemporary designs. The subtle, neural tones with tasteful bursts of color accentuate the artistic spirit of Brussels. Art collections are also displayed throughout the entire hotel, including prints of the iconic and loveable character Tintin. Many of the rooms offer charming city views whilst the Armand Blaton suite presents a large terrace with private dining and panoramic views over both City Hall and the towering spire of Hôtel de Ville.
