Walking distance to most downtown attractions, commerce, restaurants. This is a boutique hotel, very nice modern decor, great service, extremely well located. Very quiet (at least our room was), Nespresso machine in the room (important to us). Nice eating options in the surroundings. If you are driving, the access is tricky, since the street in front of the hotel is... More

This is a wonderful hotel, which provides good quality for not such unreasonable prices. The staff are well-trained and have a sense of humour. Any request they take as a challenge to please the guest as much as possible. Excellent location.

Recently stayed two nights here for the Brussels Jazz Festival - it was a perfect choice for us. The front of house staff were welcoming and efficient, the bed was one of the most comfortable we have stayed in and the whole hotel exuded relaxation and calm - even had chanting music in the backgound in the lifts and corridors!...

Just back from 3 days in Brussels staying at the Dominican. Would thoroughly recommend and would make my first choice for any return to Brussels. The hotel is located between Grand Place and St Catherine’s making it a great choice for both sightseeing and restaurants. Didn't try the hotel restaurant but returned to the bar at about 11.00 pm Saturday... More

We only stayed for one night.... But what a shame. The front house staff were absolutely fabulous, not only checking us in but giving us advice on where to go and what to do, The hotel is so beautifully designed and in real terms the prices are very good (I subsequently stayed for more expensive rates in both Amsterdam and...

We found the Dominican to be an excellent hotel. We didn't eat in the restaurant or bar. The service at the front desk was efficient and friendly. We will return if we come back to Brussels in the future.

The Dominican is a beautiful hotel located in a central part of town. The rooms were comfortable and well appointed, and the courtyard restaurant/bar is a beautiful spot to stop and relax after a busy day. The staff was incredibly kind and helpful. Would absolutely recommend to others.

My wife and I recently spent 4 nights at The Dominican. It was a very enjoyable stay and there are no major issues that prevent me from recommending this hotel to others. The location is ideally situated and most of Brussels' main tourist attractions, shopping and even the train station are all within walking distance. The lobby is very contemporary... More
