The building was built in 1909 at the request of King Leopold II on Rue Royale  in the heart of the city. Over the years it played host to a number of notable guests, including former British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill and former U.S. President Dwight Eisenhower.

The Corinthia Grand Hotel Astoria’s façade and ground floor enjoy listed protection status, though the upper bedroom floors are currently stripped down to brick work awaiting full reconstruction. The property also includes adjoining land upon which the current structure will be extended.
