We booked this hotel at the last minute. We got a great rate and it was a great hotel. Very very clean, modern facilities, and very nice bathrooms. It was clean and I am a very picky traveller with high standards. This is a great deal for an excellent hotel. Nice lobby and patio too. And it is in the... 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

What a pleasant surprise this hotel was!! My wife stayed one night in this hotel on our way to Amsterdam. Too bad time didnt allow for a longer stay. Very classy hotel that is conveniently located and relaxing. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The location is ideal with easy access to the old town areas and squares. Great... More

Everything about this hotel is good: location, service, the room. We received a free upgrade so we could stay in a loft. Breakfast was really good. Close to my favourite restaurant in Brussels: Belga Queen. A perfect hotel for some nice days in Brussels.

The Dominican is the perfect place to say in Brussels. Central location, easy walking distance to all the main attractions. Excellent bar/lounge and our room was beautiful. Staff are excellent. We stayed on the 5th floor, good view. There is also a small but excellent gym and steam room suite.

With our very busy work lives we could only spare a last minute weekend to Brussels with our 2 sons (9 & 16 yrs) We stayed at the Dominican. It was great. Walking distance from all the important landmarks: Grand place, Manneken Pis and loads of chocolate shops. Plenty of eating places nearby. If you want to see Atomium and... More

This is a beautiful hotel just steps away from Grand Place and all the action. It's close enough to walk but just far away enough to have quiet nights. Located on a small street behind the Opera House it's a bit hard to find. The lobby is welcoming and the staff always courteous. My room was overlooking the courtyard. There... More

Very comfortable, clean hotel with a most friendly & very helpful staff. Centrally located with about a 8-10 minute walk to the Grand Plaza and "Manca Piss" statue. Excellent, large room showers and big, king comfortable beds. Was about a 10 minute taxi ride from the Brussels "Midi" train station too.
