While this is not the most fancy hotel in Brussels, it is simply a very nice place to be. Situated so close at the heart of the city centre next to the most important opera house in Brussels, it offers cozy environment for nice conversations among friends. The food and drinks here are of high quality but affordable price and...

It was nice to see a new SPG hotel close to the city center, sounded great!!! However, the experience was not so great. Receptionists were not friendly at all, or even courteous, giving the me impression not to care much for guests and even lees for SPG members. Seemed to me they were bored of explaining once again that the...

Dear Ramón, Many thanks for reporting after your recent stay at The Dominican. Regretfully, there seems to be a lot of confusion with our SPG guests: as I explained previously, some members of Design Hotels recently have joined the SPG program without being a Starwood hotel. The purpose is to widen the choice. However, the Design Hotels members don't follow...

The hotel is walking distance from the train station and is located in downtown close to all tourist sights, it is a block or 2 from La Grand Place. The lobby is beautiful and the front desk employees are helpful. I found that the hall leading to the room is a little gloomy. And the design of the shower is...

We were in Brussels for a long weekend, and we don't normally spend a lot on hotels on city breaks but we thought we would try and up our game with this hotel and it certainly lived up to it's expectations. We decided to walk from Brussels Midi Train station, as it's a really easy walk about 25minutes, but also...

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...

Dear guest, Many thanks for your kind feedback. Much appreciated. The Dominican is not a Starwood hotel, but is affiliated to Design Hotels.

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.

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.
