What We Love
- A luxury boutique hotel housed in a historic building in central Brussels, with breakfastThe stylish and sophisticated interiors of this boutique Design Hotel
- Staying in an ideal location, right behind the famous theater and opera house, Le Monnaie
- Rubbing shoulders with the Brussel’s in-crowd, sipping expertly mixed cocktails in Lounge Bar
Situated within a five-minute stroll of the Grand Place, The Dominican offers style-seekers a welcome retreat from the bustle of the European Union’s capital city. This four-star boutique hotel stands on the site of a 15th-century abbey, just minutes from the famous Théâtre de la Monnaie. A member of Design Hotels™, it has famous dutch duo Bart Lens and FG stijl to thank for its architecturally stunning archways, while rooms ooze style and character in equal measure.
Outside, things are just as nice. Head to the 19th-century, glass-roofed St. Hubert Galleries to shop for labels, or pick a prime people-watching spot in a nearby café or bar. If you’ll be back in time for dinner, reserve a table at Grand Lounge, for a fine-dining experience overlooking the serene courtyard, while cocktails served beneath sky-high ceilings attract an in-the-know crowd to Lounge Bar. There’s a cardio gym and spa as well as a boxing room, to help you work off any overindulgence, and a Finnish sauna and steam room to rid your system of any remaining toxins.
How to Get There
Love staying here when I am on business in Brussels. Great cocktails, central location and super comfortable beds. Breakfast mildly disappointing and certainly not worth the cost if not part of your booked deal.
We spent three nights at this beautiful and comfortable hotel with a pleasant and very helpful staff. Nothing was a trouble for them. The rooms are very good size for a city hotel, chic, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and plenty.
The Dominican is very conveniently located . Close to the city centre, shopping galleries and, as we discovered, to the location of main Christmas market.
The hotel has the perfect location to explore the city. Hidden on a quiet street more or less around to corner of Grand Place. The room was spacious and the beds are super comfortable. Lovely staff at the reception and supportive bellboys. Great details: Gregorian chant music in the elevator and incense smell in the hall ways. ...In general a superb stay for the weekend.
We went to Brussels for a weekend. The hotel has a great location, the staff is helpful and smile welcoming. We asked for a taxi for at 1 o clock at night it was there on time. We asked for late check out there was no problem. The bathroom is very nice. The beds are a bit too soft but this is just my personal opinion. I will definately come back. It's not overpriced:)
Close to everything!! It’s like 5min walk to the train station, 5min to the grand-place and 10min to the manneken pis. So you’re in the center of everything. Amazing and super friendly staff and the rooms are clean and cozy.
