Rocco Forte’s Hotel Amigo: Where to Stay in Brussels

June 14, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Hotel Amigo, BrusselsThe European capital often gets a bad rap. But as The New York Times affirms in a recent "36 Hours in..." write-up, Brussels is hardly staid and boring!

As the seat of the European Union, Brussels gets its share of gray suits pouring off the Eurostar. Luckily, the ties come off after work. Beneath the buttoned-down facade is a lively capital that follows its own sartorial trends, indulges in decadent flavors (especially when it involves beer) and exhibits a witty, even wacky sense of humor. What other city would erect an entire museum to a single comic book series? Or to an artist famous for painting faceless men in gray suits?

You'll find plenty of tips about what to see and do in Brussels in this article. Where to stay? The NYT suggests Hotel Amigo and we can't help but agree. "Just behind the Grand Place, has the feel of a luxury pied-à-terre, with splashes of humor, like Tintin prints on bathroom walls." After all, the Amigo is part of the Rocco Forte Collection, meaning top-notch service and stylish design. The hotel is currently offering a "European Summer Escape" package which includes daily breakfast and 33% off your stay when you book 3 nights or more. Starting from 239 euros in a Deluxe Room, available for arrivals between July 12 and September 5, 2010.
