Having read some of the reviews I had high hopes since I always try to frequent smaller hotels. The hotel does have very high design aesthetic, good location, friendly staff and clearly aims to be very trendy, but I was repeatedly let down by some very basic problems. For a hotel where breakfast costs €27, I would expect that I... More

One of the best hotels I stayed for a long while. Great room: large, elegant, quiet, with everything that is needed. Comfort bed. Good WiFi. The bar inside is a real help in the winter. Great value for Money.

The Dominican is a pleasant hotel in the very center of Brussels which is very convenient for anyone who wants to wander around Grand Place and experience the key places that Brussels has to offer. I was pleased with the design and the services provided. However, I did not appreciate at all how one of the receptionist attended me at... More

This hotel is excellent! Very cozy and very well organised. All staff is client oriented! A real treat as soon as you arrive! I booked for the first time a massage, and it was very professional and efficient!

We went for a short 3 night break. The hotel itself is very peaceful and well maintained. The decor is well thought out and beautiful. We found all of the staff to be very friendly and helpful. We didn't eat in the hotel- we thought that €27 was a bit pricey for breakfast. Also we preferred to try the local... More

Spent four days at the hotel visiting family in Brussels. The hotel is charming and very well located in the heart of Brussels. Staff were welcoming and helpful, and the food in the bar and the restaurant was very good.

The Dominican is for sure one of the most charming hotels in Brussels. The building itself was a monastery in the past and that contributes to create a mystical atmosphere. Everything is well entertained and you can see they put an effort to all details. We experienced the wellness space with the sauna and the hammam and liked it a... More

My partner and I spent our first valentines together here and it was well worth it. The hotel is beautifully decorated and well maintained. I loved that the hotel smelled nice! As you walked through the hall ways there was a lively fragrance, which was a nice touch. Our room was clean and comfortable, however a little dark as it... More

Dear Aimee, Many thanks for your detailed review! Good to know that you've spent some lovely time over here... Strange that you mention our bar's closing hour before midnight, as our bar officially closes at 01:00am. I'm really sorry to hear that, I'll check where things went different... Happy to hear you're coming back for X-mas though! Warm regards, Ellen... More

A very nice room and bathroom. The service was very good. There is no voiturier and this can be a disadvantage since the hotel is rather difficult to reach by car. A reserved space in a near public parking us available. The spa was relaxing. Nice breakfast with excellent choice. A collegue had a bad experience with someone from the... More

Booked over Valentines weekend for 3 nights. Reception service was great, arrived tired mid-morning having been en route since 3am and they kindly let us check in v early! Room was beautiful & cosy, most comfortable hotel bed I've slept in for a while. Location was ideal for sights, shopping and restaurants/bars. Only problems were that service in the bar... More
