"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
"excellent hidden gem"
overall really pleased. great hotel design, and friendly and accomodating service. excellent location close to the grand place, shopping, seeing sights, and transportation, yet private, secluded and quiet. I highly recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great staff, beautiful hotel, very quiet courtyard facing roomsGenuine 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!

"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.

"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!

The Dominican hotel was a nice hotel The hotel itself was clean and we'll maintained and the staff were polite, friendly and helpful.

Great location near Grand Place and very chilled out hotel. Should have eaten there rather than rip off poor quality restaurants nearby.Genuine Expedia guest review
"pleasant quiet convenient hotel"
This is a lovely hotel with a clean comfortable quiet room . We didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment on that. The only disappointing note was a really rude barman on Saturday evening who reluctantly took our order and then left us sitting outside waiting for him to deign to bring us our drinks for over 10 minutes. The receptionist was unhappy to […] help when we told him ...he said if we waited someone would turn up eventually !! I don't want to be at all negative about the hotel itself though - we enjoyed our stay there . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"reasonable standard in very good location."
We stayed 4 nights including new years eve. On arrival there is no one to look after luggage. The room was fine & bathroom even better. Hotel all vey clean. Staff always willing & helpfull. The open plan dining area was drab & little effort had been made to make it Christmassy, so we cancelled our new years eve special dinner & ate outside. Breakfast […] was extensive for both the European & English style, as usual scrambled eggs, bacon & sausage were kept warm in trays--my pet dislike. But one could order freshly cooked eggs. Since a chef was present, I see no reason why all breakfast should not be freshly cooked.This would also save throwing away the uneaten tray-eggs etc every day. Location is first class, one can walk to all the restaurants & famous sites & museams. Overall a good standard & I have no strong complaints. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

This is a really nice hotel located just minutes from the metro and only a few minutes walk from the Grand Place. The hotel itself is a nice quiet location.

We stayed here 24th - 27th December and thoroughly enjoyed the hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Right opposite the rail station. But need to cross a bridge. It is killing if u have heavy luggages. The hotel is facing the canal without blockage. It is very romantic in the evening.

Ultimately , it's good location n good […] price with breakfast included for a family of four. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel, nice theme, comfortable rooms and very central location.Genuine Expedia guest review
We arrived late in the evening for a three night stay. We travelled with our baby girl and we were provided with a travel cot in our room, following a request made at the time of booking. Our room was of a good size and of modern decor. The room tended to be a little too warm and rather stuffy but otherwise clean and comfortable. We had dinner in the […] restaurant on one occasion and found the food to be good and reasonably priced. The hotel is ideal for a short city break. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Elegant hotel in a quiet yet central location"
The Dominican is in a great location, a short walk from the Grand Place & shopping areas. It looks elegant from outside, and inside is no disappointment either. We booked a deluxe double room, which was a reasonable size for a City centre hotel, and we were pleased with the decor (contemporary, but not beige!). The bathroom was great - we were given […] a choice of shower or bath when we checked in, and chose a shower, which was one of the best we've seen in hotels. It had a huge shower (I think they call it a drench shower - it has a huge showerhead and was very powerful!) The room also had tea/coffee making facilities, with a proper coffee machine (they supplied the pods). The only negative regarding the room would be the bed - it was extremely soft (there was a tempur-style topper on a soft base), to the extent that you felt as though you were sinking into it all the time! Some people may like this, but if you prefer a firm mattress I would check with staff if they are available in other rooms. We didn't use any of the facilities (bar, restaurant, etc) as everything is so close by, but everything looked great, and we would definitely choose this hotel again if we return to Brussels.

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 central hotel"
We spent one night at the Dominican, booked via Expedia, for the Christmas market. It is so central and just a five minute walk away from the Grand Place. Amazing! Our room was quite spacious for a central city hotel, complete with a couple of different seating options. The Nespresso machine was an added perk. The room was incredibly quiet, only being […] able to hear emergency vehicle sirens every now and again. The biggest perk was that the bed was so incredibly comfortable; I haven't slept so well in a long time! The bathroom was fantastic - an AMAZING shower really topped it off! However, the minor niggles: the wall next to my side of the bed had "stuff" splattered at the bottom. I dread to think what it was. Also, working out how to use the lift was tricky. It shouldn't be, I know, but different hotels have different security levels. At previous hotels, in order to allow access to the lift you have to tap the room key onto a pad. Not so at the Dominican. A rather embarrassing 5 minutes passed as we tried to leave the ground floor to ascend to our room... Eventually a more experienced guest came to our rescue, but this could have been avoided if the (pleasant) hotel staff had quickly explained how to use the lift!! Breakfast would have been an extra 27 Euros per person, so instead we ate at a local café for 6.80 Euros Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
