French painter Jacques-Louis David produced beautiful masterpieces in the present day location of The Dominican, which incorporates the façade of David's home into its exquisite design. Award-winning architects designed the distinctive, elegant hotel, featuring soaring ceilings, oversized metal and glass interior windows in the lobby, restaurant, and courtyard. Décor is contemporary and warm, and each suite is individually appointed with a unique personality for discerning guests.
Rue Léopold / Leopoldstraat 9 1000 Brussels, Belgium.
All 150 rooms and suites include free Wi-Fi, complimentary Nespresso coffee and tea, plasma television, 24-hour room service, a mini-bar, IP telephony, and laptop safe. The bathroom features either a rain shower or a bath, with bathrobes and slippers. Four suites -- Grand Place, Jaques-Louis David, Opera, and Junior Courtyard -- each provide guests varying levels of luxury in uniquely decorated and furnished spaces. All rooms are non-smoking.
The rich history of The Dominican's location, on the site of a 15th century Dominican Abbey, provides the inspiration for the hotel's name, design, and architecture, including soaring ceilings, original stone floors, sweeping archways, and tranquil cloisters. The site was also home to French painter Jacques-Louis David, who painted here his last masterpiece, "Mars disarmed by Venus and the Three Graces." Architects integrated the façade of David's house into the design of The Dominican.
Voluminous ceilings, high windows, natural lighting, and intricate metal work only heighten the experience of dining at The Grand Lounge, the heart of The Dominican. Guests enjoy an innovative menu and extensive selection of drinks. The Lounge Bar offers a perfect combination of a traditional café and stylish lounge, with a cutting-edge interior design, inventive drinks, and an a la carte menu. A 300-year-old fig tree shades diners in warmer weather in The Courtyard.
A fully equipped gym enables guests to maintain a healthy lifestyle, while the Finnish sauna and Turkish steam bath provide for relaxation.
Business and conference services and facilities contributed to The Dominican being named in 2008 among the Top 25 Business Hotels by CNBC European Business magazine.
A convenient hotel location, set in the heart of city centre
Tucked behind La Monnaie, the famous theatre and opera house, and just off the Grand Place, our central hotel has an elegant location in the very heart of this European capital city. Sweeping archways are a reminder that a Dominican Abbey was located here in the 15th century, and the façade of French revolutionary painter Jacques-Louis David's house, which also stood on this site, has been seamlessly integrated into the new building.
