Less than 10 minutes walk from Brussels Central station (easily reached by trams 3 and 4 from Brussels Midi) this delightful hotel is ideally located for a weekend exploring this fabulous city. The hotel is a former monastery, and has been beautifully transformed into a boutique hotel. Check in was straight forward and efficient and we were instantly impressed with... More

We stayed 4 nights at the Dominican in early January. No request was too difficult for the concierge/reception staff - In particular Andrea was fantastic. Babysitters, car seat airport transfers - all provided for us without any indication of it being a problem. The room was also impeccable - a good size, fabulously comfortable bed. The monastic chanting in the... More

The staff are superb, giving a warm welcome and doing everything possible to ensure you have a comfortable stay. They checked us in early on arrival and allowed us to check out a little later on departure. The rooms are stylish and comfortable, and we made good use of the complimentary coffee and nespresso machine in the room! The hotel... More

Just returned from a three night stay and loved every second of this hotel. Went with my partner to celebrate my 40th birthday and from the moment we entered the building we were graced with fantastic service in lovely clean and modern surroundings. Check in was smooth and the room catered for all our needs with the most amazing shower... More

I cannot say enough about the front desk! Andrea deserves a medal. During our trip I came down with a bug and only wanted chicken soup which my husband found in a nearby grocery store. A short time later, in came Andrea, tray in hand, with hot soup and a smile. What more can one ask for. On another night... More

My husband and I just had an overnight stay here in December. We caught a taxi from the train station, checked in and went for a nice walk around the city to explore and get the feel of Brussels. Unfortunately the weather turned and became really cold and wet so we decided to cut the touring short. Went back to... More

We stayed at the Dominican Hotel for 3 nights in October 2014 for our anniversary trip. Its a really great location. Located within 10 min from the Centraal Station and in the middle of old town, the Dominican Hotel fulfilled our needs for our stay in Brussels. Everything is within walking distance in the city as its very centrally located.... More

I stayed here with a work colleague whilst on Business in Brussels. Fantastic location, walking distance to Grand Place. Although we didn't eat at the restaurant, we did have drinks and nibbles at the bar and the service, food and wine were excellent. Enjoyed the monks singing to me throughout the hotel!

I stayed for two nights and felt so at home. De Brouckere (closest underground station) is about 15 minutes from Gare Midi/Zuid, and much cheaper than the taxi at €2,10 single. Almost everything was within walking distance, briliant location. The concierge was brilliant giving me directions to bookstores that might still be open late at night when I asked. He... More
