Perfect location, close to metros, Grande Place, restaurants, Gare central. service is great, beds are super comfortable, the only strange thing is how marked up the bathroom gets with regular use. I love the decor.

I loved this hotel. Clean, bright, sparkly. The service was spot on, polite but not intrusive. The room was well decorated. It had fluffy pillows and sheets and a nice sizeable bathroom. No complaints! My favourite spot is the courtyard where you can sit to have a meal or coffee/wine. Electric warmers are placed outside and blankets are provided to...

This is an expensive but great hotel. First class rooms, the bathroom being one of the most beautiful ever seen in hotels. Breakfast is also quite copious and of good quality, while restaurant is nice but a bit overpriced. Nice patio though and the bar is also quite popular. Very few minor glitches: the gym is small and the wifi...

If you like hotels that offer a local flare or boutique like,not a chain, then you will love this place. Our friend booked this hotel and I was trusting him. I was so glad he did. It is beautifully decorated and unique. The room was very spacious for a European hotel. The bathroom was majestic. The bar staff was friendly...

The location of the hotel is ideal, and it is lovely when you walk in the front door. The lobby, bar and courtyard are beautiful. The staff at the front desk are very friendly. I was upgraded to an "executive" room, but I am not sure what the extras were. It seemed like a standard room - nice, but nothing...

I have to separate the hotel from the room. The hotel itself is very well located and well decorated. The staff are excellent and were very helpful and attentive from start to finish.

We enjoyed our stay in The Dominican Hotel..The staff were courteous and helpful. The hotel is on a quiet side street but so close to the Grand Place and other attractions. The rooms are well appointed and the hotel has a charming calm, reminiscent of its monostary history. The bar is a great place to relax as you sip on...
