Reviewed 2 August 2013

A quick Eurostar trip from London presented me with this outstanding hotel just to the north of the Grand Place/Grote Markt. The rooms and indeed the whole hotel are beautifully designed; the staff attentive, knowledgeable and helpful; and the location is, I imagine, difficult to better. Its proximity to 'De Broukere' metro is a boon to all who want to...

This is an elegant, hip and very well located hotel. I would highly recommend it. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The rooms are tastefully appointed, and very clean; they are not especially large, but not so small as to feel cramped. Normally I get tired of my hotel room after a couple of days, and after almost a week I...

We wanted to be near the Grand Place, but - having done a bit of research in preparation - far enough away for peace and quiet at night. This hotel is the perfect location, being only 5 minutes walk from the Grand Place. But that's only the start; the staff were so courteous and welcoming, the hotel is very well...

I stayed at this hotel in May 2013, and I absolutely loved it. It was in a great location and so close to the Gare Central station. It was a bit far from the Gare Midi (which can be a bit unnerving for new visitors...) so I recommend taking the subway to the Central station. The Dominican was literally a...

Very impressive hotel, specially the entrance with the flames and the restaurant at the background of the lobby. As you enter on your right hand is a cosy bar and on your left hand the reception. Rooms are nice, modern, like new.. Room card needed for accessing the floors, which makes it secure. The rooms view is nothing special but...

Stayed at the Dominican on a business trip in July. Perfect location in downtown Brussels just off the Grand Place. The room was plush with a pillow top bed for extra comfort and the staff was great.

Got a very good rate online (July is apparently low-season in Brussels!) and chose this hotel based on the positive TripAdvisor reviews.
