"Calm and charm of the Dominican"
This hotel has Gregorian monastery chants in the lifts and in the rooms. After a hard day, it feels like a timeless oasis of calm, which is enhanced by the total professionalism of the staff. Excellent reception staff. A stylish bar and the general calm ambiance help with the relaxation too. Good beds and good breakfast too!
"good but not as good as expected"
I don’t think it was the best, room quite small, and some details in the room. But the biggest disappointment was the breakfast, I expected high quality products and they were not, including the bread and pastries. Moreover, you have the opportunity to order Omelette, pancakes and waffles from the menu. SO I ordered the pancake and waffle. They were dry and cold, so they could just place them on the buffet, it would be the same, since they don’t make them fresh.
"Stylish and expensive"
Beautifully designed hotel, stylish and elegant. Friendly staff. But due to modern design, some comfort is lost: night tables are too small, Raised sink and faucet water stain. The breakfast is too expensive. Room was comfortable.
"A comfortable classy hotel"
The conference room at the ground floor is an excellent venue for smaller conferences, especially because the chairs are very comfortable for hours and hours of sitting down! The grand lounge is a comfortable spot for a casual dinner, with good opportunity to mingle.
"Nice Hotel - but nothing special"
We stayed at the Dominican Hotel for a week. The hotel frontage and reception area are first class but the rooms (we stayed in a de-lux room on the 4th floor) were nothing special - in fact they had only one cupboard and very little storage in the way of drawers or surfaces to keep items on/in. The room was very warm - even with the heating turned off and the window open. The a/c didn't work - I should of asked about getting it fixed but being October I didn't think it would be required or needed the following night. The bathroom was spacious with a large walk-in shower. The internal corridors between the lifts and rooms were totally closed in with no natural light and unfortunately had a stale smell - I have smelt it before and the source was probably damp from underneath the corridor carpet due to leaks from the shower basins in the adjacent rooms. I know our showers' design meant you had to place rolled towels along the shower cubicle entrance to stop the bathroom floor being completely soaked. On day 5 and 6 the cleaning staff had obviously been told to use some air freshener as the smell was masked by some lemon air spray. The location was great and very close to the Metro/Tram station and the lovely narrow streets - especially near the Grand Place. The breakfasts were ridiculously expensive at 24 or 28 euros, we had a choice of half a dozen nice bars/restaurants within 200 meters of the hotel, that served great breakfasts for around 8 to 10 euros. I can't quite put my finger on it but I didn't think the hotel was up there with the best in Brussels. It was not a cheap hotel - costing around 1200 euros for the week and unfortunately it is not one I would be in a rush to return to or recommend.
