This quaint hotel just off Grote Markt / Grand Place is thought to be one of the most beautiful ones in town. Where one can now indulge in five-star comfort, inmates were once held behind bars; after all, amigo means prison in the local dialect, a word which was lost in translation by Spanish soldiers who likened it to mean 'friend'. The rooms are magnificent and spacious, perfect for honeymooners and romantic getaways. The service is top-notch, and includes a concierge available 24 hours-a-day to book excursions, multilingual staff and valet parking.
This centrally located, five-star hotel was built in 1930 and was well-loved by celebrities Brigitte Bardot, Gary Cooper, Humphrey Bogart, Viviane Leigh and Clark Gable.

In addition, there are 66 rooms reserved for non-smokers. While dining in the hotel restaurant L'Estérel, be sure to check out the lifelike portraits and landscapes painted on the ceiling.
