Nice hotel, great location. Our room was small but elegant. The hotel is located in a great location for walking around and getting around Brussels. Its near the train station and close to Théâtre Des Galeries, Mannekin Pis, Grote Markt the EU Parlement and other worthwhile sites. The internet connection was poor. Room service kept bugging us to clean the... More

As I normally stay in budget hotel chains, to spend 3 nights in The Dominican was absolute luxury. The hotel is situated in central Brussels and was very easy to find. The room was amazing, an added delight was the fact that there was a Nespresso machine and a kettle in the room - not often found in continental hotels.... More

The lady who checked us in on arrival was very friendly and welcoming, and we found that other staff we encountered were friendly too. It didn't really feel like a large hotel - more intimate. The location was an easy walk to Grand Place, and the many eating, drinking and shopping establishments of central Brussels. The hotel was spotless, as... More

Dear Scott, Many thanks for your kind and honest report. I am really sorry for the noise: the neighbouring opera warehouse is doing some renovations for the moment. I hope that this didn't stop you from enjoying Brussels and The Dominican... Wishing you well, Ellen de Boer. General Manager - The Dominican More

A fabulous hotel well located near the old town shopping and food area. Very friendly and helpful reception staff. Spotlessly clean throughout, comfortable beds, brilliant walk in rain shower and beautiful mood music playing throughout. Cannot wait until we stay here again.

The staff of the Dominican especially the Tunisian manager and the Belgium (Flamesh blond lady) were very accommodating to me and my wife by changing our room twice until we were content, The atmosphere at the hotel was friendly and calm, suitable for couples who are celebrating their honeymoon. The location of the Dominican hotel is ideal as it sits... More

Decent sized bedroom, a little tired compared to some other high quality hotels. Buffet breakfast - tasty and copious choices; just a little unusual at this level to not have waiter service for breakfast. Very helpful staff. Lovely hotel building. Great gin selection in the bar, and friendly helpful bar staff

The location of this hotel is great for central Brussels. It is a 5 minute walk to the Grand Place and central rail station, and 2 minutes to the indoor mall. Despite being so close to all the activity the hotel is in a quiet spot. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The beds are extremely comfortable. The decor is... More

This hotel is very nicely located and minutes away from Rue Neuve shopping, or sightseeing. Also good if you have meetings downtown. The rooms are nice and comfortable with the amenities required in the bathroom. The hotel front is like a private road, so no traffic noise. I stayed on the 3rd floor and had two rooms there, a king... More

Great service from check-in to check-out. The location of the hotel was brilliant, close to all the main attractions and some lovely restaurants. We would recommend visiting the hotel bar for a few cocktails. The rooms were spacious with a large ensuite. Overall a lovely experience with the Dominican; we would love to return again.
