Stopped here for one night with the family (2 kids and 2 adults), and we had a wonderful stay. I would choose this hotel only for its perfect location, but on top of that the staff is extremely service minded, the rooms are large (and quiet) and the overall design is very pleasant. We will certainly consider staying here next... More

When I called to see if we could arrive at the Dominican one day early for a two night stay, not only did they say, "yes" they offered us a better rate for a two-night stay! That's service. The hotel is really wonderful. From the location to the room amenities - a big king-sized bed and large shower with great... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on a lastminute.com deal with eurostar from London for only £197 each. Given that we booked it only 6 days prior this was an amazing deal. Upon arrival our check in was simple, we were advised of the 7 euroish a day tax and details were taken so that payments could be charged for... More

The Dominican is a former 18th century monastery which once housed the famous French revolution painter, Jean Louis David. It is now a luxurious hotel right next to the Brussels Opera. Blissfully comfortable beds. Lovely atmosphere and an impressive and chic bar. The whole place is infused with monk-like calm and there's even soothing tones of Gregorian chants playing in... More
