About The Dominican, Brussels

Elegant Brussels hotel in former abbey, near Grand-Place

2 minutes from metro

The historic Dominican Hotel, built on a 15th-century abbey, is an ideal destination for exploring the Grand-Place, 7 minutes away on foot. Getting around the city is easy, because the hotel is a 2-minute walk from tram lines and De Brouckere metro station.

Music and chocolate

The hotel neighbors La Monnaie De Munt, where you can take in a classical music, dance, or opera performance. For a decadent shopping experience, you can walk 1 block to the arched arcade Galeries Royales St. Hubert, with its renowned chocolate boutiques.

Cloister garden oasis

You can start with breakfast in the Grand Lounge or lunch in the courtyard garden, and later perhaps cocktails and live music at the Lounge Bar. The boxing room and fitness center let you work off some steam, or you can simply sweat it out in the Finnish sauna and Turkish bath.

Free WiFi, Nespresso®

From deluxe rooms to studio apartments, all options are designed with modern decor and artwork, and there are slippers and bathrobes to unwind in. You can brew a fresh cup of coffee in the Nespresso® machine, watch a movie on the flat-panel TV, or surf the Web via free WiFi.

The Dominican, Brussels
Great Stay!!
Great location. The staff was great- the doorman was always attentive. I liked the hotel. Noise from the hall was noticed at times. Housekeeping did a good job (except for the slippers under the desk). Check in and out was very efficient. No wasted time. I checked in a bit early and got my room. Greatly appreciated. I would definitely stay again without any hesitation. Oh yeah- loved the shower.

Pickiest Hotel Snob
There is no pool like some websites trick you into thinking, but there is an amazing sauna and gym. My boyfriend loves boxing so the vintage boxing room was a nice touch. The location is an old monastery so the monk music in the elevator was a nice touch. My only complaint was the machine wafting patchouli smell all over the hotel. It was nice but it was so much and so strong I wondered what they were trying to cover up with the wafting scent machines. Overall - 10/10 would love to stay here again my next time in Brussels

Comfortable hotel with great sense of style.
A wonderful stay at a great hotel. The location is perfect. So central but on a quiet street. An elegant lobby and the feel continues to the hallways the room. Great sense of design. Comfortable room with lots of space. Great gym too. A few really small critiques. The bedside tables are so small there is no room for glasses and a book. The bathroom doors don’t fully close. And the bed has two mattress pads that don’t meet in the middle. Makes it difficult to sleep together in the middle. However these are really minor issues. It’s an absolutely wonderful hotel with a real sense of style. I wouldn’t stay anywhere else
