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.

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 …
... the chef followed by a tasting session & a quick visit to the souvenir shop. We got the best chocolate from there. At the museum we also saw a Venezuela film showing how cocoa beans are made, fermented and exported. We also learnt that Ivory Coast was the largest exporter of cocoa beans. The museum also displayed advertisements related to the chocolate industry & a collection of vintage chocolate wrappers. We walked out of the chocolate museum waiting to grab a bite of ...
... artists were Belgians which is one of the reasons why we went as we knew nothing about them. There are so many art galleries and museums in Brussels it would probably take all year to see them all properly. It was very interesting and worth the visit. Bruce was happy as there were no Madonna and Baby paintings which no doubt we will see at some stage of the trip.
We then ...
... sampling six cheeses, two goat and four cow milk, and learning and tasting the correct pairings with red and white wine, water, and port. Agatha, the woman leading the tasting was very enthusiastic and informative. We had a really fun time; windmill well spent.
After the tasting we headed back to the ferry to get to the apartment to get out bags and get the train for Brussels. A short trip of two hours, we rode first class and the ride was ...
We woke up early so as to get ourselves sorted and onto the train to Bruges today. After checking out of our hostel we began the mad rush to the train station as we had left it a bit late. We jumped off the tube with minutes to spare and ran to the train platform, making it in minutes.
We settled in for our train journey thinking that we would be in Brussels in no time, however 2 hours later we still had not arrived…a bit ...
