The Dominican, first member of Design Hotels™ in Belgium, is a destination for elegance in the centre of Brussels. Situated behind the theatre La Monnaie, off Grand Place, its 150 stylish rooms, 3 multifunctional meeting rooms, private courtyard and animated Lounge Bar combine to ensure indulgent hospitality.

The award winning architects of FG Stijl and LENSº ASS, have created an eclectic mix of design in both the interior and exterior, resulting in an array of new styles and experiences. The rich history of the location was a source of inspiration in the exclusive design of The Dominican, mainly the Dominican Abbey which occupied the site during the 15th century. Home to famous French painter Jacques-Louis David in the 19th century, his spirit is preserved in the original facade of his abode, which is today seamlessly integrated into the new building that houses the hotel.

The 150 guestrooms and suites – everyone with an individual look – are located around a quiet courtyard and have a rich blend of contemporary design and luxurious  textiles, offering quiet comfort in a cloister-like setting.

The Grand Lounge is located in the heart of the building adjacent to the inner courtyard. Guests in the Grand Lounge are offered lunch and dinner in an intimate setting. The Grand Lounge exudes design and the harmony of high ceilings, capacious windows, natural lighting, metal work, and an innovative menu transforms it into both a lounge and a bar.

The Lounge Bar is a combination of a traditional café with a lounge atmosphere. Offering cutting-edge interior design, inventive drinks and an a la carte menu, this bar is designed to attract a style-conscious clientele of hotel guests as well the local in-crowd. The grandiose windows and soaring ceilings offer a surprisingly intimate setting.
