TINTIN : A VERY SPECIAL GUEST AT HOTEL AMIGO

28/05/2021

In partnership with Moulinsart and the Hergé Museum, Hotel Amigo presents the new "Tintin" Signature Suite, welcoming guests into the world of the daring reporter.


Not only is Belgium famous for surrealism, chocolate and beer: the story of Tintin, the character created by Hergé in 1929, has spread far beyond its borders, with his adventures adored worldwide by readers of all ages. 

 
Located in the heart of Brussels the Hotel Amigo has partnered with Moulinsart, the Hergé foundation that manages Hergé's work and the Hergé Museum. Hotel Amigo is the only hotel to offer an experience through the stories of Tintin and the colourful characters imagined by the famous author, such as Captain Haddock, Dupond and Dupont or the incredible Bianca Castafiore.



The "Tintin" Signature Suite is perfect for a couple's stay, and with the connecting room, it has everything required for a family stay too. The references to Tintin, specifically chosen for the Amigo by Moulinsart, fit perfectly into the unique and elegant decor designed by Olga Polizzi, Director of Design for Rocco Forte Hotels.  Guests can also admire the drawing signed by Steven Spielberg during his stay at the Amigo, during the release of the Tintin film 10 years ago. 
 
Bringing the marvelled books to life, upon entering the children’s bedroom Snowy, the reporter's faithful companion, stands guard. Bed linen, pillows, towels and images immerse young guests in a world of adventure with an array of exciting themed activities to choose from. 
 
In addition to colouring books and comic books, children can enjoy an unusual "treasure hunt" on the City of Brussels' comic book trail. The Tintin theme continues in the breakfast area where the younger guests will find a reading and drawing corner, keeping them busy whilst enjoying their meal with Tintin-style tableware.
 
The year 2021 is dedicated to Tintin’s adventures in America. A unique opportunity to accompany the hero throughout a journey that is sometimes perilous but always ends well - at the Hotel Amigo.
