We stayed at this B&B October 23, 24 2011. The room was lovely, nicely appointed, clean, and spacious for Europe. The bathroom and w.c. were also nice and clean. Our hosts were friendly and helpful but only the man, who was at work during the day, spoke English. The wife speaks only French, a minor inconvenience. They have a good collection of local guidebooks.
Our only gripe about the room was that, except for a small and rather fragile looking valet, there was no place to hang any clothes. No closet, no hooks, no rack. Since it was raining when we were in Brussels, the valet was used for our wet raincoats.
Breakfast included in the room rate, for the two of us, both mornings was OJ, coffee, a basket of rolls/bread, 2 slices of ham and 2 slices of cheese. ? OK, we usually stay in hotels and not B&Bs but we found it very odd that the ham and cheese were so carefully rationed, one piece of each for each of us.
There was both an elevator and stairs from the street level up to the B&B.
We had two keys. One opened the street door and one opened the door from the shared hall into the entire B&B. Our room did not have its own lock and key, a minor concern for us but maybe we worry too much.
Our rental agreement said that we could not post photos on public forums, so, sorry, none of my usual photos, save this one looking out the window.
Despite the minor quirks we’d probably stay here again if we return to Brussels.
Chez Dominique is well located. It is close to the train station and downtown so it is an easy wander to shop and sight see. It is also an easy walk to the Rene Magritte Museum which has a wonderful collection of his works in addition to photos and some history of his life. Unfortunately, many of his more famous works are either not owned by the museum or were not on display. Still worth a visit tho.
