“Good choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Lovely hotel. Good customer service. Nice, modern clean rooms. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds. Good location - close to all attractions etc.... I would stay here if in Brussels again. Avoid the breakfast though, €27.00 each - ouch, tough on the wallet!!!!

This hotel is in a fantastic location in the centre of Brussels. The reception area,restaurant and outside patio area are beautiful, luxurious and stylish.
Despite being full of business people this hotel has the feel of a relaxing holiday hotel.
The rooms are of a high standard and the bed is so comfortable you will have a great nights sleep.
We had dinner and breakfast in the hotel and whilst the dinner service was a bit slow the food was of a high standard.
Having been on business here I am returning later this month with my family.
I loved it.

Room Tip: Al of us had great rooms

Visit Brussels regularly and wouldn't stay anywhere else. This boutique hotel is an old monastery and they recreate the feel with their background music. Rooms lovely, comfortable and always a good night's sleep. Fantastic location - right in the centre and a 2 minute walk from the Grand Place and Galleries St Hubert. I wouldn't pay for breakfast but then I wouldn't at any hotel in Brussels - far too expensive and much nicer to have breakfast in a nearby pavement cafe or on the Grand Place. Having seen over 50 hotels in Brussels for a previous job running a conference centre - this is by far the best! Don't look elsewhere!

Wow, what a great hotel. Parking lot was near by and not too expensive. Note, you can't drive up to hotel. You will need to park and then walk down the block. The beds were amazing. Everything was in English. Room service was wonderful and they have a nice buffet & bar in the lobby. The bathroom was very sleek. Definitely would go back.

I stayed in this hotel several times on business trips. The location is great, just behind the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie. Taking metro lines 1 or 5 at the station De Brouckère you can reach Berlaymont in no time.
The Dominican hotel is very elegant both from the outside and inside. I like its design and special atmosphere. The hotel is very quiet and the rooms are nice and calm. The beds are very comfortable. In the room there are Nespresso coffee and tea facilities, mini bar with belgian chocolates, air conditioning and a safety deposit box. There is fast&free wifi in the room and also you can find 2 Mac computers available for guests to use just beyond the lobby. There is a gym, a spa with a sauna and steam bath for guests to use. The staff are very friendly, pleasant and helpful. Personally I would give this luxury hotel 5*, not 4* and I will definitely stay there again.

Wow, where do I start? Firstly, it's in the best location - only a 2 minute walk to Grand Place and a 5 minute walk from the Metro station. It's in a quiet street so no noise at night. Bed was very comfy and the rooms were huge and beautifully decorated. The bathroom was great, especially the power shower and rain shower. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. Really helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. The bar is brilliant; really good selection of cocktails - I recommend the Old Cuban! - and the bar staff were friendly and polite. Free internet was a bonus and the coffee machine in the room was superb. There is nothing bad I can say about this hotel! Will stay here again when I travel to Brussels.

Having booked a very late, last-minute trip to Brussels over Easter, we were looking for a comfortable hotel room in a good location. And The Dominican more than fit the bill. It's a rare and beautiful thing for the website photographs and description to be accurate, let alone almost short of the real feel of a hotel. The Dominican has a gorgeous lobby and bar, and the rooms do not disappoint. Elegantly furnished, there is enough room to stretch out and relax in comfort. The location is brilliant - incredibly close to the best parts of Central Brussels and yet tucked away in a quiet spot. In particular, I have to applaud the bar staff - not only was the bar area very inviting and well stocked, but the staff were always kind, courteous and went out of their way for us especially when I arrived late, frazzled and hungry on the Thursday night - a huge thank you! The reception staff were also very kind and helpful when I managed to mislay one of my belongings on check-in, and again went out of their way to help. In summary - a perfect experience for a weekend stay in Brussels.
