A Rocco Forte Hotel
What it is
A colorful, Olga Polizzi-designed 154-room den neighboring Grand Place.
What it isn't
Cool and cold. Owned by the Forte family, the hotel will treat you like—well—family.
What we think
If you want the homey vibe of an Airbnb rental with none of the potential headaches, this is your stay. Housed in a more than 500 year old building, the artfully decorated rooms are fitted with Belgian ceramics, fabrics and Magritte and Tintin prints, not to mention Carrara marble baths ideal for slinking into after a day pounding the pavement (er, cobblestones). Don’t check out without joining the commingling locals at Bar A for a nightcap; the ultimate order is the Madame Butterfly cocktail—a mix of amber room, lemon, wild berries and elderflower liqueur that summons the slopes of Signal de Botrange mountain.
You're here because
Unlike many hotels in this town, Hotel Amigo is kid-friendly—and for all ages. Teenagers are treated to game consoles and bespoke mini bar amenities; tots under three, turndown service with squirrel teddy bears. Oh, did we mention the 24-hour babysitting?
Star Chef Fulvio Pierangelini, of Ristorante Bocconi, is taking you to Italy—in a bite. The risotto with leek and red mullet did it; then the rum baba with cherry ice cream sent you into orbit.
Between the antiquities mecca of the Le Sablon district and Ilot Sacre, within a few blocks of the Royal Palace and the museum-stocked Mont des Arts district. Architectural obsessives won’t want to miss the Art Nouveau-era Musée des Instruments de Musique.
