“Fantastic Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Just spent 3 days in Bruges and stayed at the Anselmus Hotel. We were greeted in a most friendly and helpful manner by Ronnie. Our room was spacious and light and comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious. The hotel has a super warm ambience, is spotless and we couldn't have had a better stay. And the location is perfect for getting everywhere on foot.

Room Tip: We were in Room 8. I don't know the other rooms. Ours was quiet, spacious, big bathroom. Grea...

We loved Bruges and loved this hotel.

It is located 2 very short blocks from the center of Bruges, which is perfect. The hotel is quiet and peaceful, but so close to the wonderful sites.

We had a room for 5! It is hard to find a room for 4 in Europe, but we had an extra person this trip. We usually have to book 2 rooms just for the 4 of us, and I was worried we might need three. So imagine my delight when I found this hotel online with a room for 5! It is really a room for 4 with an extra bed. But we felt that we had plenty of space. We even managed to play a game of cards around the table at night!

The kids were surprised to get an actual key to the room. I think it was the first time they remember seeing this in a hotel. It was also the first time they'd seen anyone walk us to our room, so in their minds the Anselmus quickly became one of the nicest hotels they'd ever stayed in.

While it's wonderful and we highly recommend it, it is not luxurious. The bathroom was small, and had an accordion door which did little to stop sound from coming through.

The breakfast in the morning was fine. Not a great selection but certainly met our needs.

And as mentioned in previous reviews the owners were very helpful with maps, advice, storing bags on our last day, etc.

We would recommend this to friends traveling to Bruges.

City centre hotel just minutes away from historic Bruges centre. The hotel was clean, tidy and the staff friendly.
Although the hotel does not have a bar there are numerous bars and restaurants in the centre of Bruges so it’s barely an inconvenience.
Good breakfast.
Wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Clean, comfortable, great location and friendly helpful staff. We went on a Eurostar break for a couple of nights and it fitted the bill. Breakfast was good. I would happily go back for another few nights.

We stayed at the begining of November 2012.
We stayed in a family room which was located on the second floor, as other people have said the main stairs are very steep so avoid if you have problems going up stairs.
The room had a double and two singles which were very comfortable.
The children kept bashing their heads on the low ceiling above their beds but that was amusing to me.
The room was very clean and has a roof top view over the city.
Bathroom was good size but no lock on the door for privacy and the bath took ages to fill up but i would not count those two things agianst this hotel.
We had a tea tray in the room so saved us going out as it rained on the first day we arrived.
Breakfast was good, a good range of cold foods.
Location very good too.

This is a great little hotel for a break in the wonderful city of Bruges. The location is good, the accommodation is clean, comfortable and stylish, continental breakfast was excellent and the owner could not be more helpful.

My wife I stayed on this hotel for 3 nights and we love it!
Close to everything.
Staff was very friendly, breakfast was very good and the room was very good as well.
The city is amazing!
