Spent two days on business in Brussels and had the pleasure of staying at this hotel. The staff were extremely friendly and I got an early checkin and a late checkout without any problem or extra charge. One thing I will always remember - the church music in the lifts !!

I spent a week at this hotel last year on a business trip and found it absolutely charming and lovely. My view was of another part of the building, but the architecture was so pretty and interesting that I didn't mind! My room was very, very quiet, spotlessly maintained, and the bathroom was very luxurious and well appointed. The bed...

Bucharest, Romania

The hotel is very centrally located, in the vicinity of Grand Place, on a quiet, safe street. A nice interior design, modern style inspired from medieval art. The room was not so large but comfortable. A bit overpriced, even for Brussels. The staff was kind and helpful.

My wife and I stayed four nights at the Dominican. The location could not have been better. The hotel is stylish and super clean. The staff stood out in friendliness and helpfulness.
