I had the good luck to stay at The Dominican with a friend while he was in Europe on business. The staff at The Dominican were kind, helpful, and extremely courteous. From my experience, you will have no problem finding someone who speaks English, French, or Spanish to help you with your needs. The hotel is lushly appointed, and the... More

the Dominican is located a few minutes away from the Grand Place and about 10 minutes away from the Royal Museum of Arts and only walking distance from many other attractions and shopping centers. The receptionists are very friendly and helpful. Impeccable housekeeping. Nice room and soothing music. Only the room is a little small. Enjoyed my stay. Planning to... More

Stayed at the Dominican for one night in April. We finished up the last leg of a quick London/Paris tour. This was the perfect way to end our trip. The Dominican is located within walking distance to The Grand Place & the Viage Casino, not to mention lots of restaurants, bars and shops! I was blown away by the vibe... More

We stayed in The Dominican hotel for a long week-end at a reasonable price. We were extremely pleased of the welcome and level of professionalism from the friendly staff. The Deluxe room was spacious, with nice furniture and perfectly cleaned every day. The hotel is ideally located in a calm street behind the Monnaie theater with metro station nearby, at... More

Very central location in Brussels, trendy hotel, nice lounge bar, the staff is very friendly and helpfull. We booked a deluxe room, which is in fact the basic room. Still very neat and clean but not so big. Wifi is included, but not always a good signal to receive. TV was not working in our room. Very good breakfast but... More

I booked an Executive Loft from for 5 days. I did get a room on the 2nd floor facing the street. I could hear noise from the street until midnight and then from 5.30am on. So I asked to switch rooms. I was told that for the room type that I had booked all rooms are looking at the street,... More

We had booked two of the most basic rooms here over Easter. They were quiet, facing the back, and perfectly fitted out. Nice bathrooms and I particularly noticed and liked the built in bench/sofa in the room, very clever and safes space! The hotel is perfectly located, you walk everywhere from here. The staff were super friendly, they obviously enjoy... More

Stayed at the Dominican for one night in Brussels. Location is wonderful - within walking distance to the Grand Place, and many restaurants, bars, shops and even a casino are within a few blocks. Hotel is modern and classy. Room was spacious with modern fixtures. Could not have had a better stay.

This is a great, conveniently located boutique hotel with lots of things that make it stand out: tasteful, contemporary furniture; Gregorian chanting in the elevators; a sauna and steam room, as well as a small gym and even a boxing room; a fun bar area; and friendly and helpful staff (I'd particularly highlight Michael). We would definitely stay here again.

Dear Richard, Many thanks for your kind report. I am sorry for your disillusion about the voucher: we actually grant a 10 euro voucher to every booking through the hotel website, but the spending must be 10 euro or more. Please, let this not bother you to return to The Dominican! Best regards, Ellen de Boer. General Manager - The... More
