We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and had a pleasant stay. Getting to the hotel is easy enough and the location is very good if you want to stay somewhere near Grand Place without being in a very crowded area. We arrived via Eurostar train from London and took the Metro to get the the hotel. You can... More

Location proved perfect for general city sightseeing. Close to many good eateries (like Le Marmiton - avoid the fixed menu tourist restaurants). Very quiet considering central location due to lack of through traffic in Leopoldstraat. Reception staff were very helpful with local info & suggestions. The room was great - spacious, comfortable & convenient with many thoughtful design features. The... More

This is a very nice hotel. It is well located in the city center. All the major places are a short walk away. At the same time, the hotel is not immediately adjacent to any sights, and the surrounding streets are not very pretty.The hotel is new and nicely decorated. The complimentary breakfast is very good. Our only complaint was... More

I stayed here for one night at the end of June for a quick birthday break with my mum. The location was excellent, on a quiet street but close to all the main action. The Grand Place was about a 5-10 minute walk away with plenty of shops and restaurants on the way. We were concerned when we arrived as... More

Dear Flissy, I'm happy to learn that you and your mother have spent some great moments at The Dominican. No better place to celebrate a birthday, I would say! Birthdays return annually, so don't hesitate about coming back next year, and the years after that... Enjoy summer now, Ellen de Boer. General Manager - The Dominican More

5 minutes walk from all the action. For the price really nice hotel. Nicely decorated and looked fairly new. Very comfy bed and clean room. Friendly staff and great bar (have a cocktail in the courtyard).

Stayed here in January and had a very comfortable stay. When I travel on business for a lengthy period of time, the best I can hope for is comfort. And I had that at this hotel. The rooms were pretty. The hotel restaurant had delicious food. The desk staff were very helpful and accommodating. My only complaint might be that... More

The Dominican is off the usual tourist track, but close to the Grand Place and the rest of the city. The staff is helpful and courteous. It has been open for seven years, and the rooms are showing some wear and tear. Our bathroom was pretty dark as one light was out and not replaced by house keeping. Housekeeping in... More

This business oriented hotel is extremely well situated in the centre of Brussels, not far from the Grand Place and Central station. The hotel is very modern and stylish, in a very special dark and elegant style. There is even Gregorian music in the corridors...
