“Really great hotel in a central location”
Reviewed September 25, 2011

We stayed for two nights over a weekend. We arrived just before midnight but had let the hotel know and the owner was still up to meet us and show us to our room. Very easy and quick check in. The room was clean and tidy with a good sized bathroom and better-than-average english TV channels. Bed was a double but comfy. The breakfast room is open from 8 to 10 am and was a really generous offering - breads, pastries, fruit, yoghurt, meats, cheeses, egg, juice, tea and coffee. The breakfast room itself had three areas - indoors, atrium and outdoors - which really makes an impression at the start of the day. We loved the atrium. Service was friendly and efficient. The hotel is centrally located and within about 10 minutes of everything. I'd recommend getting a taxi from the train station; should be about 10-12 euros and take 10 minutes.

Room Tip: We were on the top floor which was quieter; if you have any troubles with stairs (they were very nar...

Stayed here on a short trip to Bruges, loved this place. Centrally located,walking distance to restaurants cafes and pubs. Very comfortable rooms with good bathroom facilities. Rooms were very clean and had a quaint style.
A family run hotel and had very helpful and welcoming staff. Very enjoyable stay and very reasonably priced. Would love to visit here again.

We have just arrived back from a two night stay at this lovely hotel. We arrived early expecting to just leave our bags at reception but was pleasantly surprised to be able to access our room on arrival at 11.30am!
The staff are very friendly with a lovely sense of humour. We asked for advice on where to eat and try out the beer and we were given spot on help.
The room was lovel size , spotless and welcomin. Breakfast was really nice .
I would definately reccomend this hotel to all my friends
And lastly the location was far nearer to city centre than I expected and was still quiet late in the evening .... and early hours of the morning !
I would stay here again .

On July 23 and 24, my wife and I stayed at the Anselmus Hotel in Bruges Belgium as part of a larger vacation in Europe. The Anselmus was recommended by a friend who had stayed there last year.
Due to our tight travel itinerary, we arrived at the Hotel about 4 hours before our scheduled check-in time. The owner/manager cheerfully told us that he would see to it that our room would be ready within the hour and that we could leave our baggage at the front desk. He gave us a map of Bruges with a suggested walking tour. When we returned, our room was ready (and spotless) and our luggage that been delivered to our room-the first and only time during our stay in Europe.
He recommended restaurants to us which were in a word perfect. When we checked out at 5:00 a.m to catch the early train to Paris, he had arranged to have a breakfast/lunch prepared and delivered outside our door. As the Hotel is:
-centrally located;
-relatively inexpensive;
-provides wonderful breakfasts;
-provides first-class service
we strongly recommend the Anselmus Hotel in Bruges

We arrived well after midnight due to a problem with the train service ( a 90 min Journey actually took 5 and a half hours). The owner very kindly waited up for us so we could check in and provided complementary tea and coffee making equipment so we could have a drink before collapsing into bed. The room was comfortable and although the décor was slightly dated the room was very clean. We had windows facing onto the street but the room was very quiet. Breakfast was good and frequently replenished. The Anselmus Hotel is in a very good location for sightseeing in Bruges. The husband and wife team who run the hotel are very nice and helpful if you need any information or help but are not intrusive. would recomend this hotel.
