We arrived on Eurostar on time and took the metro train to the hotel which was situated in an excellent position at the back of the Opera House. The hotel was beautifully decorated, very central to everything and an absolute delight. There were just two small issues that affected our rating and pushed it to Very Good rather than excellent....

Beautiful, modern spaces and well equipped rooms make this a refreshing place to stay a sone's throw from the Grand Place. The gregorian chant playing hroughout the hotel is a stroke of genius - even if sung by the wrong religious order! No parking at the hotel but reasonable facillities nearby. Breakfast a bit of a disappointment.

The Dominican Hotel is luxurious and perfectly located. It's probably the best hotel I've stayed in - and the monk-inspired lift music is rather beautiful. The staff were very helpful and approachable too. The location (approximately between the upper and lower towns, and very close to most attractions and the Gare Centrale) is inspired. There is nothing to criticise.

Stayed only one night for business, loved the atmosphere, service and location. Quite dark room with window to the patio and the bed cover was not clean, but an overall positive experience. Recommended!

Smallish but well appointed rooms with good showers. Central location makes for an ideal base for exploring the city. Staff are friendly and helpful, especially at Reception. Will now make this my base when returning to Brussels.

This hotel has the wow factor. We were greeted and assisted by helpful reception staff. The hotel is clean and stylish. It is elegant and classy. Our room was very clean and comfortable. In addition, the Dominican is situated only minutes from Grand Place. We could not have asked for a better stay!
