Tintin: A very special guest at Hotel Amigo Brussels

Hotel Amigo welcomes guests into the world of Tintin. The new ‘Tintin Signature Suite’ was created in partnership with Moulinsart and the Hergé Museum.

Those who have visited Belgium will know the country is famous for surrealism, chocolate, beer and comics. 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 next to the historic City Hall, the Hotel Amigo has partnered with Moulinsart, the Hergé foundation and the Hergé Museum to create a unique suite dedicated to Belgium’s most famous and daring reporter. 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, the incredible Bianca Castafiore and the incompetent detectives Dupond and Dupont.

The ‘Tintin Signature Suite’ is perfect for a couple’s stay, and with the possibility of booking 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 are welcomed in the suite by a unique drawing signed by Steven Spielberg. The famous director stayed at the Amigo for the release of the Tintin movie 10 years ago. Spielberg’s ‘The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn’ is a motion capture 3D film based on three Hergé albums: ‘The Crab with the Golden Claws’ (1941), ‘The Secret of the Unicorn’ (1943), and ‘Red Rackham’s Treasure’ (1944).

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. Here young guests will find a reading and drawing corner, perfect for keeping them busy whilst enjoying their meal with Tintin-style tableware.

This year 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.
