The Hotel Astoria is a five-star hotel in Brussels, Belgium, built in 1909. It has served as a famous meeting place of kings and other great statesmen and world personalities. Since 2000, the hotel has been listed as a protected monument.
The hotel was built in 1909 for the Brussels World's Fair (1910), at the request of King Leopold II. It was designed by the famous architect Henri Van Dievoet (1869–1931), a nephew of Joseph Poelaert. Built in a true Parisian spirit, the hotel's Louis XVI facade and majestic interior lend it a distinctly aristocratic appearance. It is considered among the finest luxury hotels in the world.
