The Dominican

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a wonderful hotel- close to everything you wish to do in Brussels. Our room was spacious and quiet. We enjoyed stopping at the hotel bar at the end of our day for a nightcap!

Allowed us to check in early (10am) and room was clean and big. Bed was very comfortable. Only stayed one night and can't comment on the food or lounge. But everything looked good and fun! Would highly recommended.

Very central, nice bar and gym, helpful staff, nice boutique hotel

We tried to cancel our "non-refundable" Dominican Hotel booking due to the fact that Brussels Airport was closed after the Terrorist attacks. At the time of our scheduled overnight in Brussels, all of the Airlines were re-booking flights on a last minute basis from airports located outside of Brussels. When we tried to cancel our Dominican Hotel booking, the Dominican Management informed us that they would not reimburse us despite these circumstances. We found this incredibly inflexible and unfair due to the situation. In the end, we traveled via bus over 1.5 hours in and out of Brussels since the Hotel would not refund our booking.

The Dominican Hotel meet all expectations and more. Many times traveling Europe hotels are not as advertised. The Hotel Dominican was a welcome gem. A boutique hotel with swag. The staff, the bar, the restaurant, and the room meet all expectations and more.

This was my third business trip to Brussels but the first time I had stayed in the central city. It's a nice hotel in a great location. The room was spacious and perfectly appointed. The bar was nothing special but did everything a hotel bar needs to do. You are a biscuit toss from the metro as well as from a vast array of restaurants that go from tourist traps to really outstanding dining (your challenge to find the good ones.)

This is the best luxury value hotel in Brussels! We would definitely return to the Dominican the next time we are in this city.

The Dominican is perfectly located to reach all of the prime tourist spots in downtown Brussels. The hotel staff were friendly, spoke perfect English, and were helpful with what little we asked. The rooms were very clean and modern.

A very fine hotel in the heart of Brussels. Attentive staff, comfortable rooms, and a sense of professionalism throughout. My only regret is the the concierge recommended a restaurant that was only mediocre.

Could not have been spent any better. Great location, beautiful hotel, so well designed, and we are both designers! We so appreciated the fabulous lighting, design and attention to detail. A fabulous hotel.

the hotel is perfectly located and it is very beautiful

this hotel is just perfect, centrally located you can walk everywhere. mix of modern architecture with dominican touches make this a great escape right in the heart of brussels ...great value for the amenities!

Great location for a stay in Belgium. The staff was extremely helpful a and courteous when asking for anything!! Rooms and overall hotel was very clean

Large room with excellent climate control and very comfortable bed and QUIET. Great large flat screen TV and large bathroom with fabulous shower. A good value for one of the most comfortable rooms I have experienced in a major city. Excellent location for both tourists and business people within walking distance of central Brussels' sites.

Its location near Grand Place is excellent for visiting tourists like us. Many shops and restaurants are close to the hotel. The room was clean and well-decorated, and the bar and courtyard has nice atmosphere, too.

My wife and I stayed at the Dominican from 25-29MAY13. After our flight to Belgium from London was cancelled our bags missplaced by one of the airlines and having to travel to Brussels via the Eurostar, our arrival at the Dominican could not have been better. At check in, the staff could not have been more accommodating and sympathetic to our situation. Our room was awaiting our arrival and the hotel even provided us with a complimentary bottle of cava. They also coordinated with the airline that missplaced our baggage to have our items delivered directly to us. The room was great, all of the amenities one needs. The bar is a little overpriced but worth it. Overall great hotel.

This hotel was really great. It's very modern but at the same time low-key. The elevator plays Dominican monk music (hence the name of the hotel) which i thought was so nice and relaxing. The room was very clean with all the modern amenities--very good bathroom and modern shower. I had a great stay there. It's just a few blocks from the Grand Place, The Bourse, the central train station and Cathedral, as well as not too far from the Mont des Arts and Place St. Catherine. The hotel also has a good restaurant. I ordered room service one night and had a great dinner.

By purchasing flight/hotel together, we were able to score a much nicer hotel than we could ordinarily afford. The location was perfect, the staff helpful and courteous, the beds comfy. Only thing--the room could have been a bit cooler. But coming from the American South we are used to cold ac in our rooms because it's so hot outside.

This is a first class business hotel with new, modern spacious rooms located in the heart of central Brussels. The reception staff handled all of needs with restaurants, city transportation, and recommendations without any problem. We would certainly stay there again.

Very clean, nice room and hotel overall. GREAT location, a 5 minute walk from Grand Place, 15 minutes from the Centraal station! Temperature control is a problem, our room was pretty hot and we had the thermostat all the way down! Also, the shower leaks all over the bathroom floor. Regardless, the strengths outweighed the weaknesses overall and I'd consider staying here again.
