Very friendly welcome and our room was ready early. The room was spacious and had everything we needed, even an ironing board, which after over 2 months traveling is always welcome. The hotel is walking distance from the train station and easy walking to the main attractions and restaurants. I would recommend!

I arrived too early for check in, however I was given a room which was amazing after an early travel. The room was nice, elegant & chic. The bed was very comfortable, and I had an excellent good night sleep. The staff was friendly throughout my stay. I had to leave early in the morning so I can't say what... More

Upgraded to an Executive room which was very kind and certainly appreciated. However,if this equates to a bigger room,the 'lesser' rooms must be very small'; the bathroom in particular was cramped. It is in an excellent location in a much quieter area of Brussels, but only a short distance away from the Grand Place. Well appointed, and nice decor, with... More

It's relatively quiet in Brussels this summer. We stayed for 3 nights in this superb property and thoroughly enjoyed our stay & the city of Brussels. Hotel recommendations for dinner options were spot on. A lovely, spacious room in a terrific, convenient location. Highly recommend.

Great location in city centre. Parking in nearby 'Munt' parking steps away from the hotel. Rooms with perfect rain shower only, which I prefer. But you can have a bath if you like. Nice hotel, one of my preference. King beds, all good. Excellent priced these days! Free internet and pretty fast as well. No hassle with connection and number... More

This hotel is located at the heart of Brussels and is part of the Hilton hotel chain. The restaurant offers a few interesting dishes in the menu. The ambiance is comfortable although not very child oriented (luckily we didn't need a high chair). Food quality seems good but slightly pricey for what it is. The place is superb, a cloister...

We stayed three nights at the Dominican after a biking trip. The hotel is located near the Plaza, the Cathedral and the old city generally. Opposite the hotel is a reasonable place for breakfast and across the street a market with fruit and sundries. The beds were comfortable, the rooms large and well kept. The hotel bar made great drinks... More
