"Locals agree, good hotel. Popular with foreigners"
This is a very good hotel, well located to walk all over the most popular parts of Brussels. I found the interior to be a bit dark and not pleasing to me, but not at all a deal killer. Lobby, bar and breakfast area are expansive and well decorated. Qualty of the breakfast was better than average but not remarkable. Respectable sized room by American […] standards. Well furnished. A very solid choice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful hotel in a perfect location"
Overall, we had a wonderful stay w/ our family of our. The hotel staff went above and beyond to make sure our stay was just perfect. The rooms were clean, had good soundproofing, had a wonderful internet connection, and the location cannot be matched. Our only complaint was that the 4th floor had a very strong mildew/mold odor upon exiting from the […] elevator each and every time. It did not transfer into the rooms, but still, not pleasant. We would definitely return and would highly recommend this location to others. We had 2 children, ages 7 and 11, and had adjoining rooms which was also very helpful.

"My favorite hotel on trip"
It was a gorgeous serene quiet hotel in the perfect location. Only downside is very little lightingqGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel in Brussels"
The hotel is located on a quiet street that is only a few hundred yards from everything there is to see and do in Brussels. The rooms are nice, not "5 star" luxury but really comfortable and the staff is easy to work with.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel close to the Grand Place"
Based on the reviews I stayed here 3 nights and loved it. It's close to the Grand place, tons of restaurants, a grocery store and <10 min walk to the Gare Central. I would highly recommend this hotel. I also stayed at the Radisson Blu royal nearby, which has a fully stocked gym, which this does not, but I preferred missing a few gym days for the nicer […] hotel.

I had a lousy view of the room overlooking an alleyway. It was not worth the price over USD 200 per nite. The location was good but the room was disappointing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"I tried really hard to like this place and failed!"
Firstly, to the other reviewers: 1. Yes the hotel is technically only 5 minutes walk from the Central Train Station, it took us 5 days to figure out this one route that allows that. On our arrival, even armed with a map and directions from the information office at the station it was a 20 minute ordeal to find the hotel. 2. The reviewer who said they […] have a good bar and restaurant must think that McDonald's is fine dining. At $15-20/drink, I did not order one but I looked at what they use to make their drinks and it is nothing exciting. The Restaurant was OK. Not good. It is also a French Restaurant, we would have liked to have been able to have Belgium Cuisine since we were visiting Belgium. That seems to be a difficult proposition through out Brussels, finding Belgium Food. My main knock against this Hotel, which is a common knock against Hotels in Europe, is that the bathroom did not allow for 2 people to be in it at the same time. If you are a Business Traveler, no harm no foul. But, if you are traveling for pleasure like my wife and I, it is the pits. And, would someone explain to me why they turn off the Air Conditioning at night so you get to cook in your room! Of the five nights we spent there, I got 1 good nights sleep. I really wanted to like this Hotel, but the smelly hallways, overwhelmed front office staff, mediocre housekeeping, and the general lack of amenities made it impossible.

"35th Anniversary in Brussels"
My husband and I spent a week in Brussels for our 35 Anniversary. We stayed at the Dominican hotel and had a wonderful time. The location is perfect for walking to everything. It is also walking distance to the train station. We took a day trip, by train, to Amsterdam one day and Brugges another day. Although the hotel is a short walk to all of the […] main attractions in Brussels, it is in a very quiet location. Our room faced a lovely courtyard but even if you face the front of the hotel it is quiet because the street is closed to traffic. I will defiantly stay here the next time we are in Brussels.

"great hotel for everyone."
Wonderful hotel! Beautiful, clean and the staff were very professional and friendly. Nearby everything.Genuine Expedia guest review
I loved the hotel from the moment I walked through the front door. The lobby and restaurant area is beautiful. The staff was always very helpful and professional. I had a lovely and very comfortable room overlooking the courtyard. The location was perfect and I truly enjoyed my 3 night stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location! Close to train station, walking distance to almost everything.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent place to stay near the Grand Place"
The hotel was great, convenient location. Impeccable decor. One fellow guest said the lifts are "truculent" - you need a key to access them. Internet service was so-so, one of the main negatives.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel for couples!"
This hotel was WONDERFUL and a great value. Location was perfect, very near the Grand Place. The staff were all extremely personable. It does need much better lighting for ladies to apply make-up and a way to turn down TV volumn in bathroom which plays when TV is on. Would definitely stay there again!Genuine Expedia guest review

"A great spot in Brussels"
The Dominican is a very beautiful and clean hotel...definitely top shelf. It is also located in a great spot close to the Grand Place, Christmas fairs, many bars and restaurants, and wonderful shopping. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The bed was the best we experienced during our entire trip to Luxembourg, Belgium and France (3 nights of […] 10). The only strange note is that the hotel did not offer valet parking. We dropped off our bags, and were given directions to a nearby parking garage (just around the block). It was not a big deal. However, we did think it strange that such a nice hotel would not offer such an amenity (reason for my 4 rating on hotel service). The hotel bar and restaurant were both excellent and provided a relaxing but elegant atmosphere. The hotel staff were extremely courteous, friendly and helpful.

"Location, location, location"
A 5 minute walk to the central train station, the hotel is lovely and quiet. The President of Hungary was also staying there at the time - so it was even more fun!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location. Very friendly staff. Good restaurant at the hotel, supberb breakfast, great neu and vine list. In total. A luxury hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Our stay at the Dominican was overall very pleasing. The mood was set by the entryway into the hotel. The front desk staff was generally helpful and friendly. The housekeeping staff definitely respected the "do not disturb sign", but were very efficient. (even if you left for a few minutes, they would come into the room and clean quickly). The hotel […] is centrally located and is in walking distance of many major attractions such the Grand Place. It was also convenient to shopping centers, movie theaters, grocery stores, public transportation and restaurants. The only negative was really their room service. For example, after specifically requesting a well cooked burger (no RED), it arrived absolutely rare. Also, make sure you check your bill because it seems that the room service will attempt to add costs that may not belong to your room. (not sure why this happens, but we had almost $300 Euros of erroneous meals applied to our room. The front desk was very good at removing the charges and addressing the issue). I would definitely go back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice quiet hotel"
Nice hotel close to old section but quiet. Hotel appears to be business hotel but worked well for our vacation. Rooms have modern touches, but still has unique feel. Staff was helpful. Breakfast expensive, better deals just offsite.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Dark room in great hotel."
Everything was excellent except for two related problems:1) The room faced the wall of another building and there was a large window on the other building facing our room. To maintain privacy it was necessary to keep the blackout curtains closed most of the day. 2) Number one would not have been a problem if there were good artificial lighting in the […] room, but there was not enough artificial lighting in the room. The service in the hotel was excellent, especially the people at the front desk. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Simply the best"
I stay at this hotel every time I go to Brussels and it is an amazing experience every time. This hotel is simply perfect. The staff is extremely helpful, professional and very friendly. Rooms are comfortable, clean and modern. The shower is superb! Beds comfortable and you do not hear any noise from neighboring rooms or hallways. The outside courtyard […] as well as the bar/lounge are relaxing and they serve delicious food and drinks as well. Location cannot be beat as you are steps from the heart of brussels. There is a great italian restaurant at the end of the street as well. I can't wait to go back at christmas! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Beautiful hotel near the Metro"
This is very nice hotel - much better than I expected given the price.Genuine Expedia guest review
Always enjoy staying at the Dominican Hotel. The location is central (4 blocks from the train station and 5 min. walk to the Grand Platz). I like have free wifi in the rooms and the main lobby has two free computers to use. The bar scene is popular with the guests. This hotel needs a better fitness area to meet the needs of theri clients.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Just ok..but great location"
The hotel itself is located very close to all major attractions. Upon check in, which was around 10:30AM, our room was ready. We had an early lunch (breakfast stopped being served at 10AM) and situated ourselves in the room. The hotel is very quaint and if you are fond of boutique hotels then it would seem to be a great match. My complaints however […] are as follows; while there is a thermostat located in the room it didnt seem to allow us to change the temperature in the room. Every night of our stay was miserably hot and suffocating even with the window open and the cool Belgian air entering. The housekeeping was also a huge pain. If we had the do not disturb sign on the door they would simply call to disturb us instead. Apparently house keeping only works set hours each day. The room service menu is very limited as well. Think microwave pizza style. Great location at a decent price but would probably try somewhere else out when we return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is a beautiful hotel, well located. It is a ten minute walk to the Central Train Station; and the Grand Place. The room was spacious and well appointed. The shower was amazing. We enjoyed the coffee maker, tea kettle and mini bar.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best choice for Brussels!"
Clean, comfortable, quiet and great location. This hotel was luxury for a modest price. Fabulous bed and bathroom.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel near the Grand Place, no VIP upgrades."
A really nice hotel close to the Grand Place. A clean, well maintained hotel in a convenient location. A couple of things to note. When they sell you a three bed room, one of the beds is two chairs pushed together with a foam mattress on top. The other beds have a thick layer of foam on them, so that they are very soft, too soft for me. The bathroom […] lights are soooo dim and poorly positioned, that it is best described as horror movie lighting. You can't see a thing and half of your face is in dark shadow. While they say they have air conditioning, it seems to run as a heater when the weather outside is cool. Luckily the room windows open. If you are an expedia VIP member, don't expect any upgrades. The ice bucket was full of mold and stale water. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Hiring a bell boy would be a good idea. Though a person from reception helped us with a luggage, but we were explained that there is no bell boy present at the hotel. Also would appreciate a smiling personnel at the front desk, especially after a long drive! Hotel does not have a parking, but separate parking is not far!Genuine Expedia guest review
"going downhill ..."
I have stayed at the Dominican 5 times now. The first time was amazing, but each time, it seems to go a bit more downhill. It is a nice and comfortable hotel in a good location, but the service is a bit spotty, and they do not seem too concerned by that. I am not sure if I will continue staying here. I really just expect a bit more from a hotel of this […] caliber. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is in a good location. The interior and the exterior of the hotel is beautiful. The staff was courteous, and helpful. The hotel rooms were definitely larger than any hotel rooms that I have stayed around Europe. The AC was not working properly but I chuck that to europe has old buildings, but we were able to open the window which was plus. […] I would definitely use this hotel again.

"Upscale but not stuffy"
A serene, modern retreat in the city center. Great location, excellent staff, upscale but not stuffy. Our favorite of the four different hotels at which we stayed in Belgium. Probably better for couples or business travelers than families.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Peaceful and modern close to the Grand Place"
We stayed at The Dominican five nights over a two week period during which we also traveled to Paris, London and Amsterdam. When we checked in on Sunday, the 13th, we felt like we were home. The space has been designed to mimic the lines of a monastery and the high ceilings, big windows and peaceful atmosphere make this a very comfortable place to stay. […] The staff quickly recognized us and it is a real treat to have the bartender remember the "usual" when you have only had one drink there before! The rooms were clean and modern and the beds were super comfortable. The breakfast was a bit expensive, but the selection and option to also order off the menu make it worth a bit more than we encountered in other hotels during our trip. We would stay here again if travel takes us to Brussels! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Very convienent and comfortable"
We stayed here only one night but were very satisfied. The room was nice and the bed and pillows were extremely comfortable especially for European standards. The hotel is very close to all the touristy stuff but not right in the center of it. The front desk staff was friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel, great location"
This hotel is wonderful. It is located 5 minutes from the Grand Place and a short walk to most of the sites in the middle of Brussels. It is only four years old and the decor is modern but serene. One of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in! I am returning to Brussels later this week and actually changed hotels to stay at The Dominican a […] gain!

"Smart hotel in an excellent location."
The only negative was that the air conditioning didn't appear to do much in the way of cooling the room. This was not a huge issue during our stay but could be a problem during the warmer months.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"A weekend escape to Brussels..."
We went to Brussels to enjoy the Christmas Market and world-class dining. The hotel staff did an excellent job of recommending things to do, places to see, and restaurants to try. The hotel itself was a wonderful retreat from bustle of the city. The room was quiet, well appointed, and wonderful to sleep in. We look forward to our next visit!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We travelled by car to Brussels from UK which was very easy via the tunnel, there was ample secure 24 hr covered parking around the corner from the Dominican. The hotel is fantastically located, being both quiet and also close to the Grand Place and other tourist attractions. We didn't eat in the hotel because we thought there were significantly better […] value options nearby.We did have a couple of drinks in the bar which was pleasant and the service was good. The accommodation was clean, good quality and value. We would be likely to stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Four star yes, but not best service."
While the room was generally comfortable, the lighting in the room was awful: insufficient lights and in the wrong places, making it very difficult to find an area to put on make up, for example. The breakfasts, while offering a decent range of foods, were extortionately expensive so that we only ate there once. I also thought their hospitality left […] something to be desired: I had informed the hotel that we were staying to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary but the only acknowledgement was a hotel postcard and a cheap garment carrier bag, not even the offer of a free drink in the bar. (By contrast when staying in Prague at the Aria hotel some years ago, we received a room upgrade with a bottle of sparkling wine and a sachertorte as well as a voucher for a free dessert in the hotel restaurant.

Very tasteful hotel with a lovely ambience. Only one small complaint... not enough bar staff and gave up trying to get a drink after 20 mins on the first night. Our second attempt on the Sunday night was fine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
