We arrived in Brussels at 3 pm, after a terrible flight which departed from Madrid three hours delayed. Did we traveled in a low-cost carrier? No, we flew with Iberia, a company lately signified by their daily failures and delays. We had to eat at the Brussels airport, just after landing, before taking a taxi to the hotel, where we arrived about 4, …
... days that we had here in Brussels. I woke up at a leisurely hour (remember, I was still recovering from a combination of jet lag and exhaustion brought on from not sleeping properly for two weeks), and had breakfast on my terrace accompanied by the distant ringing of church bells. Around 10, I decided that if I was ever going to rent a bicycle and cycle around, now would be the time. I don’t have a helmet, so I’m not keen ...
... After our breakfast we made our way to one of the amazing stages for a dance. Not long after we were dancing did we spot our friends from the day before. I'm not sure who was more surprised, us or them. But how grateful were they to have their flag back, I think it possibly made their day. We continued on the party with our friends, breaking up every now and again to watch different DJS and coming back for the finale. We were slowly heading for the exit, and decided to sit down ...

After lunch we took a walk up the hill to the Cathedrale St Michel one of the many churches in Brussels. Adelaide is supposed to be the City of Churches, but Brussels definitely tops the list with the number of big churches around. We saw at least 5 today including this one, one near ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Rocco Forte Hotel Amigo Brussels
Located at the Epitome of Brussels, between the Grand Place and the Manequin Pis, the Hotel Amigo sets the standard for elegant understatement and five star service in Brussels. Every detail is executed to unflinching standards, and I give this establishment my highest recommendation. Weekday rates are expensive, but budget travelers can enjoy moderate weekend rates. You can further save money by not dining in the hotel restaurant, which is also very good. Instead feast on Belgian Chocolates, Belgian Waffles, Belgian Beer, and other gastronomical wonders at the numerous street vendors and cafes on or near the Grand Place. The conceirge can also recommend numerous other restaurants in central Brussels worthy of your patronage. This is good living in Europes best kept secret.
Nice Nice Nice
What a great weekend...The Hotel Amigo is in an excellent location, 5 minute taxi from Eurostar and 5 minute walk to train station and to top it off, 30 second stroll from Grand Place. Located within strolling distance of great restaurants and street cafes. Beautiful and exceptionally clean hotel with excellent staff and nicely furnished rooms make it worth every penny. Some great deals available at weekends.
Marginal value - Variable
Some things nice. Other not. Doorman nice. Rooms pretty. Bathrooms great. Front desk staff unresponsive. Resturant staff terrible.
We'll be back
Spent a great weekend in Brussels and stayed in this great hotel with its fine atmosphere in a well balanced mixture of classic and contemporary design. To this place we promised ourselves to return a.s.a.p.
Nice room and everything was okay until breakfast when they refused to serve myself and my wife - Talk about rude. When I complained to the front desk manager he offered me an expresso in place of a 26 euro breakfast that was included in the price. Then when I checked out they proudly indicated they did not charge me for the 26 euro breakfast that was included..what a deal for over 200 euros a night. Dining staff were ******** and do not like Americans.
Since its extensive refurbishment a few years ago the Amigo belongs to my absolute favourites. Rooms are beautifully styled, sometimes even cheerful. Decor and architecture form a perfect symbiosis between modern comforts and the building's long history. The one week point about the place is the staff who are always very efficient and cool, but never welcoming.
Amigo Rates the Highest
The Hotel Amigo has a great location around the corner from Grand Place and in the opposite direction, some great restaurants as well as some casual street cafes. Excellent staff and nicely furnished rooms make it worth a return. All amenities are available and the small lounge is a welcome place to have a quiet drink. Concierge and front desk staff are THE BEST!
A great way to relax.
Spent Valentines weekend in this hotel, very romantic, staff very friendly, there is something special about this hotel, very comfortable, atmosphere relaxed. Great way to destress for a weekend. Another bonus you are right in the heart of Brussels. Highly recommended weekend rates very interesting
Great hotel, great location
This is a great hotel with one of the best locations in Brussels. It is a very large hotel, with friendly yet efficient service. The single room I paid for turned out to be a large double, with another small room at the entry and very large marble bathroom. Although it is on a very busy street, the glass is glazed and the drapes are extremely heavy, so noise is not a problem. I would stay here again.
We enjoyed our visit in 2000 so much that we came back for a shorter stay in 2001. The earlier stay was much better, and the croissants served with the free continental breakfast remain the best we've ever had. On the second visit, the staff was not quite as accommodating (I heard there had been labor troubles) and the croissants weren't quite as good as they had been. The Amigo is a fine building very conveniently located in old Brussels, right around the corner from the Grande Place.
