Review: The Dominican| Brussels | Belgium

IMG_9818Hey lovely friends! Last week I had the honors of reviewing a magnificent design hotel in Brussels! I was very much excited to be invited to the gorgeous hotel The Dominican after hearing many great stories bout this amazing venue. I have stayed there last weekend to test out all the facilities  and it did not disappoint… I had a very lovely stay!  The hotel in a nutshell: The Dominican Brussels is a beautiful destination in Brussels for all the people that appreciate the finer things in life. People with a big love and appreciation for luxury hotels will have an amazing time here. The Dominican has 150 stylishly decorated rooms, a beautiful private courtyard and a very trendy Lounge bar.IMG_9808 First impressions:IMG_9768 I have stayed in one of the beautiful rooms and the first thing that I noticed is the feeling of peace and serenity when I entered my room. Brussels is an dynamic city, busy and hectic, full of beautiful architecture and buildings and great shopping area’s, but when I head back to a hotel I love to come back to a peaceful place where I can relax and The Dominican really caters to this desire. My room was beautiful, elegant and it had a great sophisticated vibe.

And the bathroom, one word. WOW! I felt like a queen in the bathroom. It had a great luxury vibe to it and I was lucky to get one of the rooms with a bath tub in it. The Domincan provides you with toiletries, amongst those they give you luxury and relaxing bath salt. I have tried the bathsalt out and I loved it! Something special just for you: What I also loved about The Dominican was there exclusive Gym area at the 5th floor that had a boxing room equipped with everything you need to blow of some steam and also the regular work out machines so you can get a good cardio work out. And when you are done with your workout you can relax in the Finnish Sauna and/or the Turkish Steam bath! Feel lush and luxurious: I totally feel in love with this beautiful corner. The turquoise luxurious chairs and the beautiful lamps just create an gorgeous sitting area in the lounge.IMG_9801IMG_9803 When you are back from your day in the town you can have your dinner and drinks in either the Grand Lounge or The Lounge Bar.IMG_9806 The Grand Lounge is located in the heart of the building and is connected to the lovely and private courtyard. What I loved about the Grand Lounge were the colors of the furniture, the decor, the high ceilings and big windows. IMG_9815The Lounge bar has a trendy and sexy feel to it. It is a great place to come with your lover and enjoy one of the delicious drinks on the menu or have a perfect girls night out. The lounge is designed to attract a style conscious clientele of hotel guests but also the hip and trendy local in-crowd can be found here.

Therefor I always pay a little extra attention to the breakfast facilities and I must say, the breakfast at The Dominican scores an A+! There were several different options, from freshly baked bread and croissants to scrambled eggs and bacon, yoghurt, fresh fruit, super foods like goiji berries and pecan nuts, cereal, a fancy cheese platter, smoked salmon and a million other things. If you love a good breakfast, The Dominican is definitely the right place for you!IMG_9821 Location: The Dominican is quite easy to find. It is a 5 to 7 minute walk from The Central Station of Brussels. It is in the city center, close to a lot of ‘Tourist Hotspots’. Some beautiful visuals: IMG_9822 IMG_9830 IMG_9828 IMG_9824
