The location of the hotel is very good, only a short walk to Grand Place. The rooms are well appointed and the bathrooms are beautiful. The service on the other hand is very poor. While we were staying there were many new staff being trained, maybe that is to blame? Overall solid offseason value, but wouldn't consider paying full price.

It's a good hotel if you want to stay in the heart of Brussels near a walking distance from cafes and shops. Recommended for its clean rooms. Breakfast can be better for a 4-star hotel. Staff is helpful

This is a lovely hotel. Staff on reception look like they are from a Magritte painting. Candles and Easter eggs decorated reception. Rooms are comfortable and peaceful. Easy to get from Eurostar and walking distance to grand place and EU buildings.

My daughter and I traveled to Brussels last week and stayed at the Dominican for three nights. From the beginning, their service was outstanding. We were able to check in early which was quite welcomed after a red-eye flight. The hotel itself was well maintained and the room was clean and quiet. The location was perfect and easy walking distance...

Very special place, clean, romantic and spiritual. Highly recommended for couples. The staff is so welcoming! Every corner in the hotel specially designed. They have a fascinating bar in the hotel. Classical music is heard all the time like a temple.

Stayed Apr 9 to 12 after river cruise. Nice room facing hotel courtyard n 4/F, comfortable bed and good bathroom. Close enough to sights, yet quiet. Good bakery nearby for light breakfast eg Paul bakery in a mall 5 minutes away, supermarket closeby to get water and beer. Taxi to airport EUR 48 from hotel.

Nice hotel in a great location. The rooms were more modest than a hotel, but valid. The hallways were very special or weird smell but room was fresh. Fitness room is quite small, but functional. Breakfast was better than average.

We stayed two nights here.. No SPG recognition whatsoever as a platinum member... no upgrade, no breakfast you will pay 30 euros per person for breakfast. Even though the hotel was barely at 20% occupancy or so... phone in room does not call into concierge or housekeeping or anywhere within for that matter. Concierge was asked to make multiple restaurant...

Dear guest, Many thanks for reporting after your recent stay in Brussels. I sincerely regret your disillusion! Design Hotels recently joined Starwood's SPG program, however without the typical perks. This is clearly stated in every booking confirmation you receive after reserving a room. This joint venture allows SPG members to discover additional properties outside Starwood. Wishing you well, Kind greetings,...

The hotel is centrally located and everything is within walking distance from there, such as Grand Place. There are some road works going on in Brussels at the moment and to be honest it is a bit unsightly but it is everywhere but when I was there I did not hear any works going on and it was still pleasant....

Excellent hotel, located in the heart of Bruxelles, 5 minutes walk to Grand Place, and 7 minutes walk to the central station. Very nice lobby, very good rooms, and very friendly staff. Perfect for short holidays.
