We only stayed for one night.... But what a shame. The front house staff were absolutely fabulous, not only checking us in but giving us advice on where to go and what to do, The hotel is so beautifully designed and in real terms the prices are very good (I subsequently stayed for more expensive rates in both Amsterdam and...

We found the Dominican to be an excellent hotel. We didn't eat in the restaurant or bar. The service at the front desk was efficient and friendly. We will return if we come back to Brussels in the future.

The Dominican is a beautiful hotel located in a central part of town. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed, and the courtyard restaurant/bar is a beautiful spot to stop and relax after a busy day. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful. Would absolutely recommend to others.

A spacious boutique hotel in the heart of Brussels built in an old missionary building . Walking distance from grand place , museums & restaurants. Perfect place if you are coming on a vacation and want to explore Brussels on foot .will certainly consider going there again

My wife and I recently spent 4 nights at The Dominican. It was a very enjoyable stay and there are no major issues that prevent me from recommending this hotel to others. The location is ideally situated and most of Brussels' main tourist attractions, shopping and even the train station are all within walking distance. The lobby is very contemporary... More

We spent one night in the hotel in order to celebrate our wedding anniversary. At the reception, we were asked whether we would appreciate a king size bed. Our stay was perfect except the acoustical insulation ( just a door) with our neighbours (room 520 and 521). The hotel should pay more attention not to use these rooms at the... More

This is an attractive and comfortable hotel, with a good restaurant. It is close to the main tourist locations and to Central Station. The room was quiet, well designed and the bed was the most comfortable we have known for a long time. The breakfast is OK but very expensive at €27. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Wonderful facilities and great staff. I would have given it full marks if it was not for the rude receptionist at check out. She was thankfully the exception to the rule. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a break in a wonderful city.

We spent four nights at The Dominican as part of our visit to different European cities . We were attracted by the positive reviews found on TripAdvisor. On the positive side, the hotel has a definite character. A great architect must have been behind the design of the hotel and the rooms. The location is excellent, within walking distance to...

Dear guest, Many thanks for all useful information. Being a democratic person, and working in the hospitality, I believe in open communication. Information is a key to success, for guests as for hotels. As I have explained to you in earlier notice, we do have an airconditioning system though a European one (not an American one). That being said, at... More
