As a lifetime platinum member of the SPG program, I was excited to see a new SPG property pop up, especially with the closure of the Sheraton downtown. Upon checking in I was severely disappointed to learn that they actually don't honour most of the perks of the program, which had I known I wouldn't have stayed here. The location...

As an SPG Platinum member for almost 8 years I have clearly stayed at a vast number of SPG and other hotels. On a recent stay in Brussels I was excited to find a new SPG hotel pop up at a great location. Unfortunately, this was the only aspect this hotel had going for it. From check in to check...

Located within walking distance of many central spots like the Grand Place. The rooms were modern and the amenities included a boxing style gym and sauna. The restaurant and bar downstairs had a variety of local flavors mixed with standard travel staples.

We cut my vacation short at this property, as it was very disappointing for a number of reasons and certainly not on par with SPG standards. Beds: Terrible. ALL Queen/King size beds at the hotel are basically two twin size bed pushed together. The have an inevitable ditch in the middle - super uncomfortable and very hostel-like. Odor: The hallways...

We booked this hotel for the location it has, and it turned out to be a good choice. It's not the cheapest hotel in this catheogry, but it worth the extra, because it is situated in the middle of the city center, so you can walk to anywhere. We found the staff corteous, and the food was great.

The hotel used to be a monastery, hence the name. Gregorian chants can be heard in the elevator and in the room as you check in. Rooms are well furbished and location is great (10' walk from the Grand Place). I recommend it

A luxury hotel in the middle of the centre, Nice bar for tea or cocktail and a beautiful garden. Really good service and good music. Open seven and seven it's a building with an old story, and for the man don't forget to go to the toilets!!!!!!

The setup is a little between a Malmaison and Soho Hotels. Vibey, elegant and relaxed. The service was attentive and friendly where nothing was too much trouble. The Location is perfect to walk anywhere in the city and quite close to most attractions. The beds are super comfortable and our room spacious. The bathroom had a spacious walk in shower...

We spent two nights at The Dominican. It is a very conveniently located hotel, within a few minutes of the spectacular Grand-Place. The room was excellent with very good, modern facilities, though having to re-check onto wifi on each day was a bit irritating, especially with multiple devices. Very good breakfast served in a lovely area. The public areas are...
