Chic style at The Dominican Hotel, Brussels


Dominican hotel Brussels


On our recent trip to Brussels we stayed at the very stylish and chic The Dominican, a 4-star hotel right in the heart of the city. The hotel stands on what was the Dominican Abbey in the 15th century and building really is a feast for the eye which high ceilings and intricate details. As soon as you step through the front door you are welcomed by a luxurious reception area and informative and friendly staff.

After we checked in we made our way to our room, which was located near the gym in a very quite part of the hotel.  We stayed in a Delux room which was really nice and spacious, with lots of room to store our bags, a very large and super comfortable super king bed, complimentary wifi, a mini bar and Nespresso maker and luxurious fabrics and colour scheme really made the experience special. The bathroom had a rain shower and very deep bath with the little man loved.

The breakfast was a real treat and was place in the opulent restaurant. There was so much choice including pancakes and waffles, again another bit hit with both John and Mr A. As well as an array of cold meats, freshly baked breads and even champagne should you feel like having bubbly for breakfast. On both mornings I went for greek yogurt and granola with some muesli bread and poached eggs.

So how child friendly is it? We it's a very up market hotel so perhaps not best for very young babies but from toddler age on it's perfect, although you do need to book a family room as children cannot stay in the same bed as you due to health and safety and you need to pay for an extra bed or book a family room. The staff were friendly and helpful with Mr A and there were lots of choices at breakfast. The hotel is also situated on a a large pedestrian only road which is perfect for when you have toddlers who love to run.

This place would be equally good for those travelling without kids as they have a very stylish cocktail bar as well as a Spa which is perfect for relaxing. I would highly recommend The Dominican when in Brussels as you really feel like your on holiday and it's a real treat to stay here.
