The Dominican was everything it was hyped up to be. Staff was absolutely wonderful and there was no hassle. The executive suite did not disappoint. Plenty of room and very clean. Bathroom had plenty of room as well. Gym was extremely clean and well done. Breakfast was better than most hotels and definitely better than average. Everything is your normal...

Hotel - Upon arrival try to park in a local parking garage which is about 15 euro a day. We walked two minutes to the hotel and were greeted as we entered. The concierge was polite asked for our passports and within minutes we got to our room. Room- The hallways to the room have a musty smell but not...

I had a breakfast meeting at the bar of the Dominican. Nice decor, quiet but the service is very average. after you get your drink nobody can be seen in a long time and you have to go to the bar to re-order or gesticulate in a frenzy way until someone pays attention to you. pity

When we were booking the Dominican for a two-night stay, I had very high expectations of the place and, unfortunately, only some of them stood up to reality. The hotel is ideally situated close to the Central Station (but not too close so you do not get all the dirt and the rest of it that you often see around...

This hotel was ideally located close to the Grand Place with lots of pubs and restaurants nearby. It's also only 10 minutes walk from the Central Train Station. The room was a lovely size with a large comfortable bed and tea and coffee making facilities. Tip for the hotel: please replenish the coffee capsules if they have been used :)

My esperiece is only related to the restaurant. I did not have the opportunity to stay in the hotel since I live in Bruxelles. The hall of the hotel by the way is really elegant. Regarding the restaurant I report that it is well served by selected and well educated personnel. The food is prepared in high level way. The...

On Christmas Eve I stayed at The Dominican for one night. The check in was very efficient and very welcoming. The room was very clean, of a good seize, with a very nice designed bathroom and the bed was the best I ever slept in. The dinner, served in the lovely lounge restaurant, was excellent with very warm and friendly...

I stayed for three days in September and had the most wonderful time there. The hotel is neat and nicely decorated but the best was Louis, the receptionist! He was helpful and very willing to explain and clarify all our doubts. He spoke Spanish and could explain everything very clearly . All the places suggested to visit and the indications...

Checked in hoping for a nice hotel close to the city centre. The hotel more than met the need. The hotel was well placed only three blocks from the Grand Platz. Modern appearance with trendy bar and restaurant. The staff were always helpful and check in was easy. The room was well appointed and clean. The gym was quite good...
