Beautiful and yet simple rooms. When you first enter your room there will be monk music playing on the TV. It's such a lovely touch and will make you feel like a truly special guest.

This was a great stay in a luxury boutique hotel. The building design borrows from the fifteenth-century abbey that originally occupied the site. The location was perfect on a quiet street near the Grand Place, Brussels central city square. The design uses jewel-tone colors to evoke medieval stained glass, a motif repeated in the carpeting of the guest rooms. The hotel is relatively new but retains the nineteenth-century stone facade of a building which was once the home of the French neoclassical painter Jacques-Louis David. His painting features in some of the hotel advertising. Soaring ceilings echoing gothic arches divide the handsome bar, restaurant, and lobby that surround the central atrium.

We stayed in standard rooms, which are compact, but well designed and full of useful amenities, such as a Nespresso machine, free Internet access, and a plasma-screen television on an adjustable arm that enables viewing from anywhere in the room. Down pillows and a thick mattress pad made for a comfortable sleep in the very quiet room. I particularly liked the bathroom with its black granite sinks and spacious walk-in showers with ceiling-mounted rain showerheads.

We enjoyed drinks in the bar and another time drinks and tasty tapas in the area by the atrium, but skipped the breakfast buffet and restaurant dinner offerings during our stay. We did not use many of the facilities, a health club, a sauna, a steam room, and a fitness room. Nor did we try the spa or use room service. However, the small business centre was useful for printing boarding passes. All the staff we encountered were agreeable and even tolerated my French.

Cannot think of any complaints except the ice machine was rather slow.

Still after staying at the Dominican you will clearly remember the amazing feeling when you walked into the lobby. It’s difficult to describe the style but exotic is one word we could use. Everywhere you are surrounded by windows, the lobby is really illuminated . Which gives you an instant happy feeling. The interior design is classy and playful with bright colors, antique golden mirrors and a lot of flowers. Walking towards the terrace you might forget being in Brussels. The pillars around the terrace and colorful pillows on the seats make it look very Arabic. The room and bathroom are big and are really elegant styled. With a small couch to chill after a long day and subtle decorated with trendy bedlights.
Perfect for travelers who want to enjoy the city as much as the hotel.

You want to stay at a 5 star hotel for the fraction of the price? Well look no further than The Dominican. This hotel is 5 star classy from start to finish. The rooms are stylish and comfortable with attention to detail from top to bottom. The hotel is situated within a few steps of the Grand Place and in the heart of old Brussels. The reception is sleek, modern and inviting and staffed by some of the most professional and friendly people you will find anywhere.
