The Dominican is a beautiful, trendy, boutique-style hotel located about 10 minutes (walking) from Grand Place. The staff is fine - not friendly, but not unfriendly either - there is definitely a pretentious vibe given off. Our room was on the 3rd floor, and it was fine - clean and a decent size. Upon our arrival there were 2 rolls...

My parents were over for short holiday and I was looking for a nice hotel to have tean and cakes as a treat one afternoon. We fell onto this place and just loved it. The atmosphere was lovely. Barman was very friendly and baby-friendly. Tea selection was great and cakes just yummy.

The Dominican is an average hotel. The rooms were OK but not great and I didn't get the boutique hotel 'feel' that I was expecting. Cleaning could have been better. The location is great, the front desk staff very nice & very helpful, nice restaurant and bar (we tried both), and very nice common areas of the hotel. Bar staff...

Spent four days in Brussels visiting family. Reception in hotel was very welcoming. Room was spacious, overlooking small courtyard. Bathroom was well appointed. Housekeeping was a bit late in the day but we adapted. Breakfast was varied and the service from Reda was friendly. Will be back again. Thank you Giles!

This is a lovely hotel, beautifully set out, staff friendly, rooms good and bathrooms excellent. However it was let down by the lackadaisical attitude to cleaning. Glasses were not cleaned and replaced, floors not well hoovered which was a bit of a disappointment.
