“Wonderful family-run hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The four of us stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Location was perfect. Just a short walk from the market square. The owners were very helpful and and polite. Rooms are of decent size. We occupied one in the front and one in the back. The one in the front was modern but my friends thought it was quite noisy, while the room in the back was more basic but relatively quiet. Breakfast was good too. Overall we really enjoyed our stay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The hotel is small and friendly, with very polite staff and an excellent location for the the centre of medieval Brugge. On the downside, we were located on the third floor of the hotel which had very steep and narrow stairs, not ideal for all travellers. Also the room was not double glazed (not surprising for the age of the building but need to consider)so quite noisy with vehicles first thing in the morning. However, I would certainly recommend the hotel.

An ideal place to stay for a four-night break In every way lives up to its advertisement. Comfortable, spacious bedroom and bathroom. Top quality continental-style breakfast with something for every taste in a very pleasant space. Most friendly, helpful and efficient owners. Easy access to the town and only a few minutes walk from several good restaurants in addition to the ones they recommend. A map was given on arrival with two recommended walks which took in most of the places of interest and made it easy to get to know the town. We found Anselmus through a Eurostar deal and would recommend it highly.

We had a great stay at this hotel. The owners were helpful, polite and very charming. The room was very comfy and the breakfast was a delight, served in the bright atrium between the two buildings. It is very well located for the centre of Bruges and easy to find from the Market Square. The map provided was a welcome bonus too. Should we return to Bruges, w will most certainly try to stay here again.

Such a delightful stay at this hotel. The owners are lovely, so helpful and welcoming and full of excellent advice for the city. They clearly love what they do and go out of their way to make every guests stay a success. Our room was spacious and comfortable with great heating/cooling for the changing temperature outside! Breakfast every morning was delicious...a huge buffet of cereals, breads, pastries, cold meats, cheeses, juices and you could have cooked eggs. Everything was delicious. The hotel is in a perfect location, incredibly close to everything. I will return to this hotel in a heartbeat!

Excellent hotel with central location. Rooms of high standards and very comfortable. Owners most helpful in all respects and would not hesitate in recommending this hotel. On arrival made to feel very welcome and given maps of the area also gave us advice on where to eat locally. Thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night break there.

Room Tip: Should you have any mobility problems, request a ground floor and a shower not bath in room.

What a super find - a 3 star that should be 5 star for service, cleanliness friendliness of the owners Ronny and Magda.
A Trip Advisor award winner and rightly so - if you want a hotel of character, an ideal location just close enough to the central area of Bruges, and real comfort then this is the place to stay.

Couples, family rooms and suites available

As a frequent business traveller, a private hotel will beat the chain hotels everytime -and all at a reaonable price.

Higjhly recommended
