Hotel Review: Rocco Forte Hotel Amigo, Brussels
In plum position in the heart of Brussels, this luxurious hotel has five-star qualities but with an elegant, contemporary styling rather than frills and formality. Interiors are styled by Olga Polizzi of the Forte family - bedrooms are sleek and spacious, the cocktail bar is bright and convivial and the restaurant is fun and Italian. The service, obviously, is top-notch.
Rooms available from £272.86 per night

THE LOOK AND FEEL
The multi-gabled, red-brick building is full of sleek, understated luxury, due to the sure eye of designer Olga Polizzi, sister of Rocco Forte. Neither fussy or formal, it has a polished contemporary style.
As you'd expect from a five-star hotel - and a member of Leading Hotels of the World - service is flawless whether it's the right garnish in your cocktail or sight-seeing advice. Nothing is ever too much trouble.
