Top 10 Hot European Hotels

A room at Hotel Amigo in Brussels, Belgium


Hotel Amigo

Refurbished by the Rocco Forte Hotel Group, this 500-year-old former prison is the epitome of Belgian chic. Housed in a classic Flemish-style building, it is just steps from Grand Place square in the heart of Brussels. While it's known as a destination for visiting dignitaries, don't let that dissuade you — this hotel is anything but staid. Ancient tapestries provide an interesting contrast to Surrealist paintings and whimsical touches like prints from Belgium's famed Tintin storybooks. For those who want a full dose of art-meets-style (as well as loads of complimentary extras), the René Magritte Suite is a must. Classic Italian fare can be savored at Ristorante Bocconi, while barrel-aged cocktails are a treat at Bar Amigo, which looks onto cobblestone streets and the picturesque town hall.
