Story 

Our building is over 500 years old and has been a hotel since 1957. It was converted by the Blaton family to host royals, celebrities and VIPs for the 1958 World Exposition. As a nod to history, our Royal Suite is named after Armand Blaton.

Since 1522

Our historic building was first mentioned in the town records in 1522, when the city council bought it from a wealthy merchant family. The building was then turned into a prison before becoming a hotel again.

Original foundations

The lobby floor is paved with cobblestones dating from 620. They were originally used in the surrounding city streets and carefully preserved during the hotel’s renovations.

Concierge Tips: An Insider’s Guide To Brussels

For the ultimate insider experience, follow Hotel Amigo’s concierge to some of their favourite places in Brussels. Step into a city brimming with fine antiques, delicious artisanal chocolate and extraordinary Art Nouveau architecture.

Grand Place

The opulent Grand Place is the beating heart of this historic city. Its show-stopping Gothic spired city hall takes pride of place, surrounded by rows of ornate guildhall facades and a vast cobbled square. By day, you’ll find a flower market and a lively café culture, while after dark the Grand Place is enchantingly illuminated.

Magritte Museum

Explore the mind-bending archives of Belgian Surrealist artist, Rene Magritte at the Magritte Museum. Featuring an astonishing archive of over 200 of his best works including The Return and The Harvest, the museum hosts an eclectic array of paintings, sculpture, drawings and photographs.

Sablon

This elegant pocket of Brussels is awash with antiques and art each weekend, when a market arrives in town. You’ll find beautiful silverware and charming timepieces to peruse at the stalls, as well as artisanal chocolatiers, pretty pastry shops, sophisticated boutiques and quaint cocktail bars in this historic neighbourhood.

Parlamentarium

Those with even a passing political inclination will be captivated by a trip to the Parlamentarium, the European Parliament visitor centre. It’s a highly interactive experience where visitors can get a panoramic view of Europe and its parliament in their cinema, take a virtual trip through the continent, or simply learn about the legislative process.

Dansaert district

For stylish shopping, make a beeline for the Dansaert district. Here, trendy boutiques like A.P.C. and Maje sit alongside large designer emporiums. For cutting-edge fashion visit Stijl, where you can shop for Vetements and Dries van Noten. Make a pit-stop at the lovely AM Sweet tearoom for homemade baked treats.

Art Nouveau and Art Deco

Brussels is the capital of Art Nouveau, and one of the best ways to discover this romantic, decorative style is with a stroll through the city streets. Admire Belgian patron of Art Nouveau, Victor Horta’s architecture by visiting Hôtel Tassel and The Solvay House, and explore his mosaics and stained glass at the Horta Museum. For luxurious Art Deco, Villa Empain is a must-see.

Comic Strip Centre

From the Smurfs to Tintin, Belgium is the comic strip capital of the world. Discover the magic of these characters at The Comic Strip Centre. Housed in a majestic Art Nouveau building near the Grand Place, the temple to cartoons takes you on a journey back to their past whilst celebrating their present. Children will love the 3D Smurf village and adults will adore being transported back to their childhood.

The Atomium

Despite being built in 1958, the Atomium still looks like it’s from the future. The extraordinary structure of polished silver spheres is the most iconic landmark in Brussels, but as an exhibition space dedicated to architecture and design shows, the Atomium has plenty to offer inside, too. 

Inside The World Of Tintin In Brussels

The Belgians take their tradition of comic strip writing seriously, even giving it its own name, the ‘ninth art’. Their greatest artist is Hergé, creator of ‘The Adventures of Tintin’ and country’s most famous fictional detective. The unforgettable character of Tintin has left an indelible mark on Brussels and everywhere you turn, glimpses of him and his comrades light up the capital, from murals on walls and train stations, to museums, shops and even in the suites of Hotel Amigo. Delve into the story of Tintin in Brussels with this comic lover’s guide to the city.

Inspirational Locations

Start where it all began in Etterbeek, a municipality of Brussels where cartoonist Hergé (real name, Georges Remi), was born. Explore the neighbourhood that raised such a talent before heading to 26 Rue Terre Neuve in Brussels to discover the surprisingly ordinary house on which Tintin’s home was based. Around the corner is La Fleur en Papier Doré, said to be Hergé’s favourite watering hole. A quiet, homely space, it’s easy to imagine him relaxing here while taking a break from writing or perhaps dreaming up fresh ideas over a pint of Belgian beer.

Dive deeper into the stories by visiting local sites that influenced Tintin’s adventures. The Place du Jeu de Balle flea market inspired the market in ‘The Secret of the Unicorn’, where Tintin found a model of the unicorn that instigated a new adventure. Elsewhere, Hergé used the Royal Palace as inspiration for ‘King Ottokar’s Sceptre’, while artefacts housed in the imposing Musée du Cinquantenaire appeared in stories including ‘Seven Crystal Balls’ and ‘Prisoners of the Sun’.

Family-Friendly Museums

Belgians love comics so much that the capital has a whole museum dedicated to it: the Comics Art Museum. Naturally, Tintin plays a leading role at the institution, which takes visitors through 25 years of comic strip literature. A favourite for families and children, the museum has creative exhibitions dedicated to the adventurer and other famous faces like the Smurfs and Dickie, and a children’s reading room.

Tintin is also a star of MOOF – Museum of Original Figurines. A collector’s dream, this museum proudly displays a large collection of figurines of characters from Flemish and international comics. Young aspiring cartoonists can also join a workshop and watch how experts transform 2D comics into 3D cartoons.

If you have time to venture outside of the city, visit the Hergé Museum in the nearby town of Louvain-la-Neuve, a 30-minute drive from Brussels. Here, you can discover more about the life of the artist himself, as well as his famous character.

Tintin at Hotel Amigo

For the ultimate Tintin experience, book a room at Hotel Amigo. Located moments from the giant Tintin mural on Rue de L’Etuve, every room features artwork donated by Moulinsart, the Hergé Foundation, including rare prints of stories inspired by local locations such as Brussels’ flea market, La Monnaie Theatre and the Royal Palace. Hotel Amigo also gives guests a map of the city, which they can use to embark on a detective adventure of their own to discover the world of Tintin in Brussels – an exciting game for the whole family.

Souvenir Shopping

While myriad shops across the city sell Tintin souvenirs, one of the best is La Boutique Tintin, just off Grand Place and a stone’s throw from Hotel Amigo. An official outlet of the Tintin brand, the space contains an impressive collection of memorabilia, ranging from small figurines for children to rare collector’s items for the young-at-heart.

The Most Beautiful Art Nouveau Architecture In Brussels

Brussels is commonly considered the capital of Art Nouveau. A walk through the city centre offers a history lesson in architecture as beautifully preserved Art Nouveau buildings from the late 19th to early 20th centuries stand shoulder-to-shoulder with historical Gothic structures. Explore the incredible Art Nouveau buildings in Brussels and discover the works of Victor Horta, the Belgian patron of Art Nouveau, as well as the homes of notable talents such as Paul Cauchie and Paul Saintenoy. 

Hôtel Tassel

Hôtel Tassel is widely considered the world’s first Art Nouveau building. Built by architect Victor Horta in 1893, the UNESCO World Heritage house (which, contrary to the name, isn’t a hotel) was designed as a home for Belgian scientist and professor Emile Tassel. The building features a trendsetting design that abandoned the traditions of the time for modern materials like iron and glass. A distinctive stone exterior with large curved bay windows encases a stunning interior, the centrepiece of which is a grand staircase that spirals up through the tall townhouse. While visitors can’t freely venture inside, it’s worth passing by to see the building’s striking exterior.

The Solvay House

The Solvay House, another UNESCO World Heritage Monument, is one of the most ambitious works by the same architect, Victor Horta. After being given a bottomless budget and creative freedom to design a home for science magnate Armand Solvay, Horta used the opportunity to push the boundaries of Art Nouveau. By manipulating metal framing usually found in industrial structures, he was able to create an innovative layout wherein natural light flooded through cleverly placed glass panels. Architecture enthusiasts can enjoy a tour of the building to get a closer look at Horta’s work, which includes spectacular painted walls and beautiful motifs that flow between all aspects of the interior décor, from the mosaic floors to the custom furniture.

Horta Museum

Get inside Horta’s head with a trip to his home and studio, the Horta Museum. The house was built between 1898 and 1901 and is a typical example of Art Nouveau design, with beautiful interiors that heavily feature mosaics, wall decorations and stained glass – most of which has been preserved. The Horta Museum opened in 1969 and has since invited visitors to take a tour of the building and learn about the architect at its insightful Art Nouveau exhibition.

BOZAR

Complete your tour of Horta’s Brussels with a trip to BOZAR Centre for Fine Arts, an impressive museum built by Horta in 1928. While differing from his usual mansion designs in size and grandeur, the building still maintains a discernable air of Art Nouveau. Recently renovated to the architect’s original appearance, the museum houses art exhibition spaces, concert halls and theatres. 

Villa Empain

Designed and built in the 1930s by Swiss architect Michel Polok, Villa Empain is a beautiful example of Art Deco done the luxury way. After being commissioned by Baron Louis Empain, Polok used the highest quality materials and most expensive details to construct a beautiful home which would last the ages, visually and physically. Recently restored to its former glory, the villa is now home of the Boghossian Foundation and its artist in residence programme which invites artists from all fields to spend time at house to work on their craft. Villa Empain is open to visitors and guides lead tours every day except Monday.

Cauchie House

One of the most beautiful Art Nouveau buildings in Brussels, Cauchie House was built by architect and artist Paul Cauchie in 1905. While the exterior is distinctly Art Nouveau, Cauchie’s artistic hand is felt strongly throughout, particularly in the intricate graffito wall décor. As is only natural in an artist’s house, the walls are covered with famous Art Nouveau paintings – a highlight for visitors. The house is only open to the public on the first weekend of each month, so advance planning is essential.

Musical Instruments Museum

The Musical Instruments Museum, or the ‘mim’, was built in 1899 to a design by architect Paul Saintenoy. Located on the Montagne de la Cour, the building was an ancient department store redesigned as a museum to house one of the largest collections of musical instruments in the world. Whether you’re interested in music or not, it’s worth a visit for its striking Art Nouveau architecture, which can be admired from the rooftop restaurant. Accessible independently from the museum, the restaurant also has unbeatable views over the city – a striking way to bring a day in Brussels to a memorable close.

Continue your architectural adventure at the historic Hotel Amigo, which was built in 1957 on the site of a former prison.

Belgian Chocolate Artistry: The Best Chocolatiers In Brussels

People go to Italy for pizza, Germany for sausages, and Scotland for Haggis, but in Belgium, it’s all about the chocolate. Brussels is the spiritual home of cocoa enthusiasts the world over, and is estimated to house around 2,000 chocolatiers. While this may seem excessive, simply sample it and you’ll understand why. Next time you visit Hotel Amigo, explore the art of Belgian chocolate making with this guide to the best chocolatiers in Brussels.

Pierre Marcolini

When it comes to chocolatiers in Brussels, one man’s name stands out above all others, Pierre Marcolini. The chocolate master is famed for his daring creativity and dedication to quality. He personally selects beans from plantations in Brazil, Mexico, Vietnam and Chuao in Venezuela and roasts them back home in Brussels, where he experiments with unique flavourings. Visit the flagship boutique on Place du Sablon to discover tempting truffles, flavoursome macaroons and innovative creations such as cocoa-infused ‘tea’ and intense 6g chocolates. If you can’t decide on just one, hand pick your own customised box at the chocolate bar.

Wittamer

Wittamer started life as a bakery over 100 years ago. Over time, the family-run company turned its attention to chocolate and became an innovative leader as one of the first to use colours in its chocolates. Wittamer’s reputation was so great that it was commissioned to create a huge chocolate cake for the wedding of the King and Queen of Belgium in 1999, earning it a Royal Warrant. Visitors can sample sweet treats at the patisserie or explore the atelier’s myriad chocolate offerings and pick up a speciality Carré Floor box – a customised selection of 25 smooth pralines.

Neuhaus

Neuhaus is credited with the invention of praline, a cornerstone of the Belgian chocolate industry. The company started as a pharmacy, which used to cover medicines in chocolate to make them more palatable. But when the founder’s grandson, Jean Neuhaus Jr, took over in 1912, he omitted the medicine and filled the chocolates with fresh cream. Praline was born and Belgium never looked back. Visit Neuhaus to sample a seemingly endless collection of pralines, chocolates and gift boxes. Ensure you pick up a couple of classics, such as Bonbon 13 and Astrid, which follow the original recipes created over 75 years ago.

Mary

Mary was opened in 1919 by chocolate enthusiast Mary Delluc. Based in the heart of the capital in Rue Royal, it soon became a favourite of passing noblemen, who returned again and again for its quality hand-made hand-decorated Belgian chocolates – the signature curved langues de chat (cat tongues) were a particular success. Mary became a supplier to the royal family and was awarded the title of Certified Royal Warrant Holder of Belgium in 1942, 1990 and 1994. In today’s art deco-style boutiques across Brussels, visitors can sample the latest collections and flavours, or explore the chocolatier’s history through tasty period boxes, such as the rosine, the gilded box and, of course, the langues de chat.

Laurent Gerbaud

Inspired by his travels to the Far East, chocolatier Laurent Gerbaud blends chocolate, fruit and spices to create premium chocolates that are unique and flavoursome. It all started with dark chocolate coated kumquats (candied oranges), and has now extended to apricots, lemon peels, figs, grapefruit, plums, pears, nuts, and much more. Visitors can sample his fruity creations at the Laurent Gerbaud boutiques on Rue Revenstein and Rue des Chartreux.

Take your chocolate adventure back to the hotel by booking in for Bar Amigo’s Chocolate Afternoon Tea. In a delicious twist to the traditional high tea experience, diners feast on chocolate sweets by Pierre Marcolini, washed down with hot chocolate, chocolate infusions and Champagne.
