Amigo Hotel

Open All Year... Rocco Forte Hotels is delighted to introduce the newly refurbished Hotel Amigo, which we have restored to its rightful status as the best luxury hotel in Brussels.

Hotel Overview

Rocco Forte Hotels is delighted to introduce the newly refurbished Hotel Amigo, which we have restored to its rightful status as the best luxury hotel in Brussels. As befits the capital city of Europe, we have ensured that the latest facilities and technology have been provided throughout the hotel, from Bedrooms to Conference Suites. In addition we have added a new Restaurant and a new Fitness Centre. The style depicts the fresh, modern interiors now synonymous with the Rocco Forte Hotels brand whilst retaining the Hotel's character and charm. This refurbishment, together with our pledge of the highest levels of five-star accommodation and personal service, should ensure that you will have a pleasurable stay, whatever the reason for your visit.

The architecture and welcoming atmosphere of the Amigo, together with its privileged position right in the heart of Brussels, places it firmly in the great traditions of the "hotel industry", where the greats of this world - notables, stars, businessmen and informed tourists have been hosted. Just one step from the famous "Grand Place", and Lace Museum, not to mention Brussels oldest citizen "Manneken Pis", the red brick facade of the Hotel, built in Spanish Renaissance style, fits perfectly into the architectural past and present of its surroundings. The Amigo offers every comfort to ensure that your stay is a moment of true excellence.


The building was first mentioned in the town's records in 1522 when the city council bought it from a wealthy merchant family to turn it into a prison. The Spanish rulers at the time mistook its Flemish name to mean "friend" and therefore translated this into their language as "Amigo". The irony of this misunderstanding seems to have pleased the people of Brussels and the name has stayed with the house and the surrounding area ever since. After serving various purposes over the following centuries the building was transformed into a Hotel in 1957. Paul Verlaine, the French poet, was imprisoned in this place on July 10th 1873 after he injured his friend Arthur Rimbaud with a gun on the moment he wanted to leave him.

Historic artefacts displayed on the premises including canvases from famous artists such as Courtens, Dansaert and Wagemans together with paintings by the Dutch and Italian schools. Flemish wall tapestries from the 18th century and the authentic paving stones in the lobby, were originally used in the surrounding streets, help to create the special charm and character of this place.

On the 11th January 2000, the hotel was acquired by Sir Rocco Forte to form part of his exclusive chain of 7 luxury Hotels in various parts of the world. This collection of hotels under the name of Rocco Forte Hotels International represents attention to detail, quality and service in delivery. Following the takeover by Sir Rocco Forte the Hotel is now undergoing a major refurbishment to cater for the requirements of modern business travellers.

Le Verlaine

In July 1873 the famous French poets Paul Verlaine and Arthur Rimbaud had a terrible quarrel, which resulted in Verlaine hurting his friend Rimbaud in front of the Hotel Amigo. He was immediately arrested and spent one night in the Amigo Prison. Now, a new brasserie-restaurant is born at the place of the drama: "Le Verlaine". Located on the ground floor that also has a separate entrance from the street. It has a smart feel with wooden floors and long banquettes. Extensive windows allow you to look out over the cobbled streets and take in the hustle and bustle of the area. ”Le Verlaine” is able to accommodate up to 110 diners and will provide a wide selection of Belgian and French dishes and an extensive wine list with a choice of exceptional wines.
