Notes to Editors
History of Rocco Forte’s Hotel Amigo
The original building predates 1522 when it was bought by the city council from a wealthy merchant family and turned into a prison. The Spanish rulers at the time mistook the Flemish for prison to mean "friend" and translated this into their own language as "Amigo". The irony of this misunderstanding seems to have pleased the people of Brussels and the name has been retained. The building was re-build as a hotel by the Blaton family in 1957 for the Universal Exhibition in 1958.
Following the purchase of the Hotel by Sir Rocco Forte in 2000, it has undergone a complete refurbishment followed by the stylish eye of Olga Polizzi, Rocco Forte Hotels' Director of Design. Rocco Forte’s Hotel Amigo has been restored to its former glory, with fresh modern interiors whilst retaining its character and charm, making it the best luxury hotel in the city.
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 tradition of the “hotel industry”, where the great 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 façade of the hotel built in Spanish Renaissance style, fits perfectly into the architectural past and present of its surroundings.
