The Dominican reminds me a bit of Belgium: Not big, but they try hard. On the outside, the hotel is like your average boutique hotel in a middle sized city (sorry, Brussels!). They're modern and they all seem to have the same interior decorateur: beige, brown, cream and white are the prominent colors. So it's the staff that makes the...

This is a great hotel right in the centre of Brussels. Although not small, it has a great boutique and personal feel to it which is a rare find in Brussels. Rooms are nicely designed with high ceilings. Breakfast area breaths a calm and relaxed start of the day, unlike most other hotels. Breakfast offering could probably improve a little.

This hotel is very well situated in the city center nearby the Gallery Saint-Hubert. The hotel entrance is outstanding. Check in was somewhat slow. Personal taste but I didn't like the music at all in the elevators (which also were quite small) and in the room when entering. The room was quite big and I like the option offered between...

While the rooms are generally on the smaller side, they're beautifully decorated with large beds and baths (your choice of shower or tub). About a block from the Grand Place - easy walking distance with literally dozens of restaurants along the way and a hundred more down the side streets. The rooms themselves are well designed with space-saving designs and...

Quite peaceful atmosphere inside this nice place. The location is perfect: all main attractions are in the walking distance. Very friendly and welcoming staff. Rooms are clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was amazing especially eggs Benedict. I will definitely stay here next time in Brussels.

Wish I was able to stay more than 1 night. This hotel is in quiet location but just 2 short blocks from everything you need. The rooms are unique, big, plush, and comfortable, so much so you don't want to leave. The bathroom is quite modern with a huge shower and separate soaking tub. Their bar, lobby and restaurant give...

I booked this hotel because it was a unique sounding building with history and good reviews. I also was able to get a pretty good rate considering the location and how nice it looked. The hotel is trying to be a sophisticated high end hotel and it was that based on the decor, however some other details which I feel...

What I most appreciated is the whole team, from the door, reception, bar, breakfast, restaurant and floors, just perfect. Great atmosphere... I am used to travel alone for business, and at The Dominican I felt so comfortable to stay long at the bar with belgian beer and computer, and their nice cosy terrace for smokers.
