The Dominican is a very comfortable hotel in a great location. We managed to walk to everywhere we wanted from the hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is fairly modern, well kept and has a good theme running through it. Our room was really comfortable - got a great nights sleep.

The Dominican offers a decent experience at a reasonable rate. It is well located near the Grand Place with easy access to major tourist attractions and tram lines. The hotel has a sleek modern look and appeals to a professional business crowd. The rooms are clean and spacious (our basic room was larger than I expected), there is a trendy...

Have just returned from a fantastic weekend in Brussels and our first visit to The Dominican. We were not disappointed with anything.

This was my six annual trip to The Dominican which coincides with a conference I attend every year. Again, location, ambiance and service can't be beat. And they have one of the top 3 hotel showers I've ever used. While I've typically given the hotel 5 stars, the rooms are starting to show a slight bit of wear and tear....

Stayed one night while exploring Brussels. Atmosphere was very calm and relaxing, staff exceptionally pleasant, WiFi was reliable and bed comfortable. Maybe it was a little too comfortable as I slept through my alarm and the first wake-up call, nearly missing my ride to the airport! Would have loved to have stayed a second night just to stay in, do...

I stayed in the Dominican for two nights while on a business trip to Brussels, and I loved every bit of it. The executive double room was very nicely furnished, very large and came with a nice bathroom.

Stayed with a family with primary school children for 2 nights during May day break.
