TravelPod Member ReviewsHotel Amigo Brussels
I highly recommend this hotel. We were able to check in early which is always great when you've just flown in from the States. The room was spacious and well-appointed and we greatly appreciated that housekeeping even replaced our towels and supplies during turndown service.

Historical Traveler Reviews 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.

... plenty. For the more traditional and less intolerant, mussels, rabbit stew and chocolate left us far from hungry.
We did walk. Some days not far, but we did. The highlight undoubtedly, a visit to Mannekin Pis. Hard to compare to the Eiffel tower of Paris and the Pyramids of Egypt, a national symbol nevertheless. Although a little underwhelming, the pint size fountain of a little boy *******, leaves both tourists and locals alike laughing in sync.
... ask for an American Burger, be prepared for a shock. No bun, uncooked (i.e. raw) and my expression was, apparently choice: shock horror, my meat has to be nuked!
After some discussion with the chef (after all, this is a Belgian delicacy) she was able to cook it almost all of the way through which made it much better. After much discussion we are still unsure if Liz's "steak" was beef... or ...
What I can already tell about this trip is getting lost will be a common occurrence. We set out to explore the city with a map but that really didn't do us much good. We found the Grand Palace with ease because it's directly across the channel from us, but the rest of the places we saw were pretty much all by accident. The Grand Palace was an absolutely awesome square where tourists and locals mixed at ...
... Moules and Fritz, chocolate truffles, Belgian beer, waffles, formage corquettes and jambon crepes.Brussels is not well signed for tourists at all, many of the main tourist museums and shops don't even have a sign out the front! It's weird. The main square, Grote Markt is really nice, I love the cobblestones and laughing at all the Asian tourist's antics.
It has been weird getting accustomed to seeing the drivers on the right ...
... as some of the people at the plant were telling me how long it could take to get to the Brussels airport. Said that is why people stayed near the airport the night before. Said traffic can be so bad that you can be but a couple miles away and be stuck for two hours. And then when you do get to the airport, it could take quite a while to get through security. Especially as this is a vacation period. My taxi was there at 7 sharp. ...
