"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!

"wonderful, soothing , but needed a tub"
Excellent facility, ideal location: central but on very quiet side street. Only one complaint: half door on shower means water goes on floor and has to be moped up each time. Sure did also long for a nice bathtub. Otherwise, a privileged treat.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very nice hotel, centrally located with plenty of shopping and places to eat with walking distance. The only gripe I have is there's a lot of construction going on in the area and it can get loud early in the morning. Other than that I would very much recommend this hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Dominican Hotel Brussels"
My husband and I were very pleased with the Dominican Hotel. We liked where it was located, the street was quiet, and while it was close to the main square it didn't have the traffic or noise. The staff was friendly and very helpful. They helped us with directions, gave recommendations for restaurants and where to find breakfast, looked up train schedules, […] and helped with requests for the few things we needed for our room. The room was lovely and clean. I was dreading uncomfortable nights on a strange bed, but the mattress and pillows were perfect and we slept well. The room and bathroom were clean and attractive. We enjoyed the lounge and bar areas where we holed up for drinks, reading, lounging and devouring the chocolates we'd bought. Really a nice atmosphere. The one morning we were too tired to look for breakfast we ate in the hotel restaurant. It was overpriced, but we knew that's what hotels do, and they offered everything we wanted in the buffet. It was a really pleasant and trouble-free experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"November in Brussels"
Loved this hotel! The reception staff was friendly and helpful. I was able to check into my room at 8:30 AM after a transatlantic flight. I liked the modern style and spent many nights in the "cool" hotel bar. I would recommend a room facing the garden because it was both a beautifully view and very quiet. The free wifi was also an added plus! I would […] stay here again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel room was modern & a bit spare. I think it was the largest room I've ever had in a European hotel. Bed was supremely comfortable. Breakfast was expensive but had good options. Hotel staff were helpful & spoke perfect English. Room service was good. Housekeeping left our door ajar when they had finished cleaning, which is unsettling, but […] when I reported this to the front desk, they were quick to come to the room with me & inspect it with me. Location is perfect for tourists. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is updated and impressive with high ceilings and beautiful decor. The room would have been great for two but it was definitely not meant for 3 people. We were expecting a deluxe room for 3 but instead we got a room that can only fit 2 beds and as a result, it was really hard to move with the third bed in the room! The bathroom is newly renovated […] and the shower is amazing but the room size was defintiely a downer. We would definitely come back but only if we are two! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice , clean, sharp convenient hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
Loved, loved this hotel. We stayed there twice in one trip from 10/8-10/10 and 10/15-10/16. Very modern considering it's in a very old city. The room was surprisingly large considering it's in Europe. With fee wifi, I was able to keep in touch and send pictures to friends and family back in the states. It's so close to Grand Place and Brussels Centraal […] train station is a 8-10 minute walk to take to other wonderful destinations in Belgium and Europe. The staff was very friendly and helpful and all spoke excellent English. The even held one of our very large suit cases why we went to Paris for 3 days. The only problem I had was that there was construction going on in front of the hotel but other than that I found this hotel to be fabulous! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is beautifully designed, very comfortable and elegant. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The location is excellent - a quick walk to the historic district. We were there is Oct and the room was a bit hot. But otherwise, it was perfect! We were sorry not to be able to stay longer!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Grade A Hotel in Brussels!"
I was so amazed when I walked into this hotel. I did not know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised to find out that I had booked a 4 Star hotel! The hotel looks entirely brand new. It was very stylishly decorated in a modern feel. Sort of like a W Hotel is. The lobby was huge, spacious and elegant. There was a central courtyard restaurant, a […] side bar and a side sitting area in addition to the usual sofas in the reception area. Remeber everything here was stylishly done with low lighting, small fireplaces, candlelights, fresh flowers and antique elements of a Roman feel. The rooms were beautiful. The carpet had an arabesque design to it to add interest. The bed was gorgeous with gorgeous linens. Internet was free which I think always should be in a hotel. The bathroom was spectacular. The sink was a black granite bowl. The shower (you are offered a bathtub or shower on check in!) was a floor to ceiling glass door with marble tiles! And the best part was the hotel advertised rates where 2.5 times more than what I paid! I saw the rates posted in the lobby as most European hotels have and I was flabbergasted to know that I got this hotel for much much less! The only drawback: You are a bit far from the Grand Place of Brussels (Main Square). The Grand Place is where all the action is and this hotel is about 10 blocks from there. But it was just a short little walk honestly and not too bad of an inconvenience! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Dominican hotel Brussels very central"
Attractive boutique hotel located short walk from Grand Place and very central. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Hotel is attractive design Two negatives were 1 quality of cleaning of rooms there was dirt on the floor and I had to call to have supplies replaced 2 a rip off in the Resturant where I was told that I could not have tap water and discovered […] that the bottle of water I then ordered was charged at €8 when I got the bill. This was compounded by very slow service and the discovery that (at least) part of my meal came from a pre prepared package. At their prices there should have been a proper chef cooking from basic indigredients. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean Friendly Hotel in a great location"
We stayed at the Dominican in July 2011. The exterior is old but the public areas and rooms are completely redone. While not large, the room was well designed to make good use of built-in desk, bench, closets and storage. We never felt cramped or confined. Bed was very comfortable. We used the free internet computers off the lobby, rather than the […] complimentary internet in the room. Speed was good and there was no login required. The in room coffee machine made a great cup of coffee, although we never found out the meaning of the different colored coffee pods. We also did not have a chance to try the hotel’s restaurants. Location proved very convenient. It is walkable from the central train station. The (back of the) opera house is across the street and the Saint-Hubert Royal Galleries is around the corner. There we found great restaurants, cafes and chocolate. Walk through the gallery and you are a block from the main square and three blocks from the Mannequin Pis. A great hotel in a great location for a vacation in Brussels. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fabulous Stay in Brussels"
This was a great hotel in Brussels! There was much attention given to comfort and details and the place was amazing! Service was incredible from check-in to the bar to check-out. The rooms were very comfortable, beds amazing and such great touches as in room espresso, piped in music, flat screen TVs and a seating area by the window to read. We were […] close to so many things but enjoyed returning to the tranquility and comfort of our hotel. I would recommend this to anyone and would return if back in the area!

"Great Location, Great Hotel"
We stayed for two nights at the Dominican Hotel in Brussels and loved every moment. The hotel staff was extraordinarily helpful and gave us many great recommendations on things to do. The hotel itself is beautiful and you can tell there were no cut corners. Fitness and spa facilities were wonderful and a great way to help relax. The only issue we had […] was when we requested a cot for our second night, we were told the room was too small for a cot (even though to me it seemed like there would have been plenty of space). Although it was probably a good thing that we didn't get one because a cot costs 50 Euros per night. Otherwise, we had a fantastic stay and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Brussels. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic Brussels location, very luxurious hotel"
This location was fantastic - incredibly centrally located, but on a side street - so no noise to worry about. Beautiful hotel - very large room, not only by European standards but also by American standards. Bathroom wasn't huge, but the shower was - best shower EVER. I highly recommend this hotel! My only negative was that they didn't typically clean […] the room until late in the day, between 1pm and 5pm. So if you came back to your room midday, it wasn't yet made up. Small issue compared to all of the positives. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel, conveniently located."
Nice hotel, conveniently located to the Galleries Hubert and the Grand Place. If we didn't purchase the 3-day Brussels Card we would have walked to many of the sites. Beds are softer than we're accustomed to and the rooms facing the courtyard can be noisy because of the outdoor bar but overall we found our stay enjoyable. I would recommend this hotel […] to other travelers. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

INCREDIBLE! We truly loved everything about The Dominican Hotel. From the front entrance, staff, lobby to the rooms and LOCATION, everything exceeded our expectations.

This is great hotel. beautiful bedrooms and public rooms. We had a room with a just a shower and although I am not a fan of over head showers the volume of water that flowed has made me a convert. A couple negatives would be our room had blinds at the windows which meant the room wasn't completely dark and we were woken my the early morning light. The […] other is the cost of breakfast, which while I am sure it is really nice it is very expensive. Lots of local coffee house and bakeries were a good alternative.

"Comfortable hotel, central but very quiet."
I looked long and hard at hotel options in Brussels before choosing the Dominican. I'm glad that I made this choice as the rooms were excellent with extras such as bath robes and slippers, free wifi, etc. I am fussy about traffic noise and this hotel is very quiet, on a pedestrian street with no shops, but still very central. The room views are limited […] as a consequence, however. Service was very good indeed. The only downside is the issue that many visitors report in Brussels, and that is the additional cost of breakfast in the hotel, especially if you don't eat much.

"Very beautiful and stunning great location"
Entrance to the hotel is simply breath taking amibance very classy and warm welcoming. Hotel is very clean from the outisde as well as the inside within its lobby entrance abnd bar area. The actual ground floor with its bar and resteraunt area is simply warming and welcoming with being all open through glass and lighting as well as a court yard that […] is just simply stunning, The location of the hotel is very well situated within the center of the city without being too central Ie it is very quiet within the area it is located with everything being within a short walking distance.

"Good looking Hotel central location"
Not friendly welcome and the Dominican Musak is hideous in the lift in the bedroom everywhere and to not have this sound you have to unplug two connections from back of television - I don't think so. Tissue holder empty - welcome. Tea tray has only three. Sachets - we are in a room for two - there is no milk there is no sugar. It would be better to […] have stool for luggage rather than wardrobe space and the hangers in wardrobe are so high up unable to reach if vertically challenged - the list goes on. The hotel is well appointed and was comfortable and being able to leave luggage on day of departure was a bonus and appreciated Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Overall great but..."
Beware of the breakfast charge of €27! Not good if all you want is a coffee and some cereal. The hotel is very nice but this will stop me staying again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A good place to stay for business but not vacation"
The hotel is centrally located and overall is very nice in its appearance, however I believe that it is much more suitable for those travelling for business. We found the restaurant to be over priced and so we would venture out each day and enjoy coffee and pastries at one of the many cafes nearby. We asked at the front desk for a recommendation for […] a steakhouse and we were directed to one about 2 blocks away. Unfortunately, the staff there was rude and the steak was average at best. On our last day we mentioned to the staff that there was an odour of sewer gases coming up from the shower drain. We were told that they would look into it the following day.

"Would return for sure!!"
The hotel is beautiful. The location is great. Staff helpful when there is a problem, however, the hotel is empty in the summer, and the rooms are hot. The staff claims the system is NOT air conditioning,. but an air exchange system, that seems to shut off in the middle of the night. We were very hot. Also, you cannot find the hotel which is located […] in an alley. We drove our car. If you are lucky enough to find the alley, you cannot even get in without a code. We sat for a long time, and then my husband had to walk to the hotel to get the code. The staff was too busy at the front desk to answer the buzzer of arriving guests! Can you imagine! At the end of our stay, we agreed we would return as the hotel is very beautiful, but we would have to get a very nice rate, as we did on Expedia. We booked the loft suite, because it said it was non-smoking, but we found out the entire hotel is non-smoking. Had we know that, we might have staying in a less expensive room. The dinner at the hotel was very, very nice, but if you venture out, the Italian restaurant next to the Hotel is superb and well priced. The hotel is only a 20 minute walk to the Jeu de Balle Flea Market, and only a five minute walk to the Grand Palace. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"very nice hotel"
Beautiful hotel, beautiful decoration with a mixture of new and old design. It is very well located : quiet while at the same time very close to the grande place. The only weak point is if you come with your own car, there is no parking and no possibility to drop out luggage in front of hotel. But otherwise, we had a very nice experiene.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Lovely hotel in the heart of the Lower Town"

Stayed in this hotel since it first opened and it is about the only hotel in Brussels that has real character and atmosphere. It is the only hotel I would consider "dining in" as it is such a pleasant environment. The breakfast is fantastic.

What an amazing Hotel in the middle of Brussels. So close to everything especially the Grand Place. Service is excellent and the rooms are great. The rainfall shower is to die for and the beds are big and comfy.
