The Dominican is ideally located in Brussels close to the Grand Place and other tourist attractions. It is in very close proximity to Brussels Midi and Nord and central stations as well. We found the rooms very comfortable with spacious bathrooms with a nice shower. The hotel has all the mod coms including a mini bar and nespresso machine. We... More

I booked a stay at the Dominican and unfortunately my husband has taken ill and we are not able to travel. Latifah Irakiza has been so kind and compassionate and offered us a full refund. Thank you. We look forward to staying at the hotel when he has recovered.

Stayed at the Dominican over the weekend. Was given a room upgrade as it was our 30th wedding anniversary celebration. Thank you Latifa! The hotel is lovely, well furnished, great decor, a relaxed feel in the bar and lounge area, and the rooms are spacious and clean. Staff were very welcoming, helpful and pleasant but without being too in your... More

The location of the Dominican was perfect for sightseeing, restaurants, and proximity to the Central train station. In fact, we were able to walk from the station to the hotel with our luggage. Also convenient to catch a train for a day trip to Ghent. Our room was lovely with a very updated bathroom. My only complaint was that breakfast... More

The property is beautifully designed and furnished. The location is most convenient to the central train station and the attractions of lower Brussels. The spaces for the bar and restaurant on the first floor are lovely, but get little use. The rooms are well designed and quite comfortable for two people with luggage. The one issue we encountered is that... More

We enjoyed this hotel for a few reasons; 1) great central location, 2) nice comfortable bar with plenty of beers and cocktails to choose from, 3) reliable fast internet that helped us write pages for our website, sightguides.com 4) really helpful concierge

We just spent three nights at the Dominican. We loved everything about it starting with the unbeatabl location. We were able to walk everywhere, even in the rain.... The reception staff was very efficient, accomodating, and helpful. We arrived early and were given a room mid-morning as soon as the first one became available - this is always appreciated after...

First off, the internet service is very good. Yay! But the overall attitude and the food need serious improvement. Dinner in the restaurant was OK- don't get your hopes up. Forget breakfast! Like a bad airport lounge, except the coffee is worse. (My breakfast was not included so I paid dearly.) Interaction with the front desk was the deal breaker.... More

We spent four nights in this nice and quiet hotel. ( May 21st - 25th ) . Close to the central station and to Royal Theater De La Monnaie. The room was confortable. Lighting was a bit low and the window was fascing a close building. ( room 421 ) The hotel staff was very professional and helpful.

my husband and I stayed 2 nights at The Dominican- to go to the Rolling Stones concert last saturday. The first impression about the hotel was really a good one, but unfortunately our stay was not so happy due to the behaviour of the housekeeping and the people at the reception desk. In fact the day of the concert, we... More
