Rocco Forte Hotels’ brand of hospitality is understated and global, but sometimes a bit cheeky, and that’s what defines the company’s outpost in the Belgian capital. The rooms offer a variety of charming views, whether straight through to Town Hall or over the churches and spires of the city. Their generously sized bathrooms have red or green mosaic tiles that match their marble vanities, along with playful figures of Belgian iconic characters like Tintin, Snowy the dog, and Captain Haddock. Less whimsical is the restaurant, where a pair of Italian chefs turn out smart takes on local Belgian produce and meats. A small fitness center helps guests work off the damage.
In the Area
The hotel is in the center of Brussels, right by the UNESCO-protected Grand-Place Market Square. Some of the city’s best restaurants are also a short hop away. Scheltema is a classic Belgian brasserie and an institution since 1972, and La Roue d’Or has an Art Deco appeal. For Michelin-starred gastronomic experiences, there’s Comme Chez Soi and the Japanese-inspired Jaloa. On a more culturally minded note, the Magritte Museum pays homage to the surrealist artist, while the Museum of Cocoa and Chocolate celebrates one of Belgium’s most beloved cultural contributions.
How to Get There
The hotel has the best location in Brussels .. Great staff very friendly and officiant.
Clean rooms and great housekeeping service.
Very helpfull concierge.
I really enjoyed my stay there and I'll definitely stay there again whenever I'm in Brussels again.
Having stayed in many Rocco Hotels in Europe, this hotel is ideally located in one of the best place in Brussels. The staff were really friendly, helpful and most important great service. We arrived early they helped to get a room as we were tired after a very long trip. The receptionist gave us a very nice room with a very good view.
Room wise, excellent, comfortable, and feel like "home" feel.
Will definitely return to the hotel when we are back to Brussels next time.
We had an outstanding stay at Hotel Amigo. We arrived an entire day early (mistake in planning!) and they were very accommodating and adjusted our reservation on the spot, which was especially lovely considering that we had two rooms (partially paid with credit card points) and needed a baby cot. The property is gorgeous and the breakfast is outstanding. But the highlight was the service. Every person we encountered went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. One porter even noticed our toddler refusing to put his shoes on in the lobby, and came over to us with a twinkle in his eye and a magic touch - within moments our grumpy little one was giggling in the porter's arms, and finally had his shoes on.
This feels like an elegant business hotel and there's nothing about the property visually that says "family" (except maybe a few tasteful Tin Tin models on display), but don't be fooled. The people who work there all seemed to delight in our toddler's presence (and that's pretty amazing, considering how challenging toddlers can be sometimes) and engaged him cheerfully for the entire stay. Can't thank them enough for their warmth and service.
Also, be sure to try the Bar A (as in Amigo) beer. It's delicious.
