“Great Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We just returned from staying at this hotel. It's in a great location. Our room was spacious. The noise level was low. I would not however, recommend eating at the restaurant as it is extremely
expensive, even for brunch. There was no coffee machine in the room and I had to ask for one. They brought up a kettle with instant espresso. I felt a Nespresso machine would have been a
much better set up. We had issues connecting with their wi-fi and connected with one called 'Visa' instead. I would highly recommend free tours with Sandemans, which you can book on line or
just meet up in the The Grand Place or Grote Markt, a very short walk from the hotel. Of course, a nice tip is appreciated. The staff were very professional and helpful.

Hotel is an old jail but you'd meet guess by the rooms or the layout. We had requested a room upgrade when we booked online and pleasantly surprised when we received an upgrade to a suite when we checked in. The room is spacious with a comfortable bed and a huge bathroom. The staff is very helpful and the concierge did a great job arranging a day trip to Bruges and recommending restaurants, etc. A quick walk to the center of old Brussels this is a great place to stay.

Dear ToddandlisaS,

It is a pleasure to read your review on The Hotel Amigo on TripAdvisor!

It makes me feel even happier that you found our staff helpful and the concierge were able to provide you with recommendations.

Indeed, The Hotel Amigo is very well located, a foot step away from the main square and the other main places of interest.

I do hope to welcome you back at the Hotel Amigo and if there is anything I can do for your future reservations, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Sincerely Yours,

Priyanka Bardoloi

Centrally located, this Brussels hotel provided style, excellent service and an amazing dinner during our single night's stay. We were en route to Bruges to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary and stayed for one night. We decided to dine in the restaurant and we're treated like royalty. Service was marvellous. As the hotel had been informed by our travel agent of our celebration, we found white wine on ice in our room, a voucher for for us to have a glass of champagne in the bar, rose petals strewn on our pillow. Such lovely touches made our short stay nonetheless memorable. Highly recommended, outstanding.

Perfect location, clean modern rooms, excellent service, awesome free breakfast, no silly extra charges for wifi, water, etc. This place was just perfect for my spouse and I for our 4 night stay in Brussels. We took day trips by train to Ghent and Brugge - just a 5 minute walk to the Central train station from the hotel. Avoid the tourist trap restaurants near the Grand Place (and the hotel). Use trip advisor or the hotel concierge to find the excellent places to eat in this cosmopolitan city.

Room Tip: Room 401 has fantastic views.

at check in the person was impolite, and unprofessional. I travel 6-7 times a year with my family and always stay in 5+ star hotels. I though this was one!. I made the reservation through american express which entitle me to free upgrades. I had reserved a suite (almost 600 euros a night) and when i checked in asked for the upgrade, i was told with an insulting attitude from the person in the front desk and was told of course not!!! I checked online and there was room an upgrade suite available and the next morning (around 8 am) I asked to a different person and she checked and said yes there is available room for upgrade. We already unpack and settle and were only going to stay one more night anyway. The treatment of the lady was just disrespectful and insulting. I will never stay here again, it has a great location but you can find many other hotels around here.

It is the second time I have stayed at the Amigo, last time was more than 3 years ago. The hotel has not changed it still has this timeless elegance and a perfect service. The location is the best in town and therefore I can only recommend this jewel in the heart of Brussels.
Thank you for all the staff for making our Week-End even more special.
