DESCRIPTION

The Amigo is a family-owned hotel designed for families. Upon your arrival in the lobby, you will immediately feel its mixture of old prestige and contemporary comfort. Near the reception, comfortable red velvet sofas invite you to sit down. If you let your eyes wander, you can see splendid Flemish tapestries, charcoal sketches on the walls, and especially the majestic stone slabs that adorn the entrance. These stones have survived the centuries and have been part of the building since 1620.

Before being a luxury hotel, the Amigo occupied a very different function. In the 1500s, during the Spanish occupation, the building was bought by the city council to be a prison. This is where the current name of the hotel comes from. Indeed, in Flemish (one of the 3 national languages ​​of Belgium, with French and German) prison is called « vrunt » and « vrunt » rhymes surprisingly with another Flemish word, « vriend » which means « friend » … This confused the Spanish soldiers who, instead of hearing « vrunt », heard « vriend » and translated it naturally into their language as ‘amigo’! Today, the hotel’s street is called Rue d’Amigo in French, but also Vruntstraat (Street of the Prison) in Flemish! A vestige of the past, a mysterious secret passage still links the Amigo to the nearby town hall…

The Amigo became a hotel in 1957 (in anticipation of the 1958 World Fair), under the impetus of the Blaton family. Since 2000, it has belonged to the luxurious family chain Rocco Forte, a guarantee of quality and excellence, which owns the hotel. The establishment offers a wide range of rooms and suites, 1 restaurant, 1 bar, 1 gym, 1 valet parking and several conference rooms.
