OPENED:

OWNER:
Sir Rocco Forte

GENERAL MANAGER:
Edward J.J. Leenders

LOCATION:
Hotel Amigo is situated in the heart of Brussels, next to the picturesque Grand Place. 

HISTORY:
On the area of the actual Hotel Amigo, a building predated 1522 was bought by the city council and turned into a prison. If we believe most Brussels’ historians, the name “Amigo” comes from an error of language interpretation. They say that the Spanish soldiers of the sixteenth century were Dutch unfamiliar. They have confused the word “vrunt” (prison) with the word ”vriend” (friend), and therefore translates to “amigo”. Today, the official address of the hotel is “Vruntstraat” (in Dutch), “rue de l' Amigo “(in French).

The Hotel was built in 1957 over 6 floors by the Blaton family for the Brussels World’s Fair of 1958.

Rocco Forte Hotels took over Hotel Amigo in January 2000.  The hotel has undergone a complete refurbishment to restore it to its former glory and to claim its rightful status as the best luxury hotel in the city. 

The interior of the hotel is a true artistic heritage preserved by Rocco Forte Hotels: Flemish tapestries of the eighteenth, and the authentic pavement fifteenth century (1620) in the lobby.

The five-star Hotel Amigo is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World. 

DESIGN:
Olga Polizzi, Rocco Forte Hotels Director of Design.

INTERIOR:
The hotel's style reflects the fresh, modern interiors now synonymous with the Rocco Forte Hotels’ brand, whilst retaining the hotel's character and charm.

BAR & RESTAURANT:
BoCConi serves authentic Italian cuisine in a cozy and contemporary atmosphere. The restaurant has a separate street entrance and a terrace. Sample Italian dishes made using the finest local Belgian produce.

The Bar Amigo is ideal for enjoying a signature cocktail, a cognac or a glass of Italian wine.
