“Nice stay.”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

We had a very pleasant stay in the Dominican. Very friendly and helpful crew during checkin, checkout, restaurant,…. We had a junior suite which was very spacious with a stylish & cosy interior. Everything in the room (bathroom, furniture, carpet,…) was very well cleaned. Our junior suite had a view on the inner-patio. Quiet room which gave us a good sleep. Location is great, in a quiet street ( no cars allowed, you can park nearby in 2 car-parks). Loved it.

The Dominican is an excellent hotel in Brussels. Well located, allows you to walk to all the places of interest. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The staff is always wiling to assist and recommend places to visit and dine. I highly recommend it.

We stayed 4 nights in the Dominican and this was our third time at this hotel. The location is fantastic, on a quiet square and less than a 5 minute walk from the Grand Place. The staff were extremely competent and helpful. This is an elegant and modern hotel. The common spaces are opulent and spacious. The rooms are quite large with wonderful furnishings. We were there for the Jazz festival and it was very close to many of the music venues. Breakfast is on the expensive side but there are many cafes nearby as alternatives. This is a place we don't want to leave!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on a high floor on the front of the hotel for the best view.

I found this hotel on Trip Advisor and it seemed to have a good rating and be nicely situated. I booked it for three nights and took the Executive Double. This was a first time visit for my wife and I to Brussels. The hotel room was moderately sized but very well appointed. We were very pleased with the location. We could easily walk to the main square and some great shopping and restaurants. Other than the fact that storage space was a little tight and that some shelves had to be designed for seven footers there was nothing to complain about in layout of hotel room. The drinks and snack bar were complimentary for the Executive Double although I think it would have been nice if the selection of available drinks was a bit more extensive.

My wife and I both thought that the desk staff was very friendly and helpful and the hotel was very quiet and peaceful with attractive upscale décor. We only had dinner at the hotel one night but it was very good with great service and for an expensive European city not exorbitantly priced. Since we only had three days in the city it was great that we were in walking distance of so many good areas.

I would certainly recommend the hotel for those on a tight schedule and who want a bit of luxury at an affordable price.

Room Tip: Be prepared to operate out of a suitcase for non-hanging items.

The Dominican is ideally situated, the staff are very warm and welcoming and speak perfect English, they were confident to recommend and assist us in places of interest to see in Belgium. The rooms are lovely spacious, clean and bedding and facilities of a high standard ensuring comfort. Free 24hr wifi is a bonus, I am sure you will enjoy your stay here.

The Dominican is located within easy walking distance of major attractions. Staff is helpful. Rooms are of ample size and quiet. Our visit was during the Brussels Jazz festival, which may have placed unusual strains on occupancy and related housekeeping. Our room was not made up in a timely fashion, but we did receive fresh towels. A former Dominican monastery, the hotel pipes background chanting through the rooms.

This hotel is in the very centre of Brussels, close to the Grande Place and easily accessible from transport links such as Eurostar. It is quiet with a stylish bar and restaurant around an internal courtyard. My room was equipped to a good standard; the bathroom was large and modern. The comfort of the bed was a joy! I unfortunately had a very poor meal from Room Service after a late arrival. Breakfast was, thankfully, totally different. The prices are definitely not cheap. But stay here if you get the chance.
