Anselmus Hotel
Ranked #30 of 97 Hotels in Bruges
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 2, 2013

A group of 17 of us stayed here for a long weekend. From the very first contact to saying "Farewell" on the final morning everything was perfect. We travelled to Bruges on Harley-Davidson motorcycles and Ronny, the hotel owner, arranged secure parking for us all at a very fair price. The hotel location is perfect, the rooms are spotlessly clean, breakfast is a classic Continental buffet, the owners are absolutely charming and their restaurant tips were perfect. Tea/coffee making kit in the room would have been nice and the stairs are very steep with no lift but this hotel is truly a little jewel in Bruges. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the larger superior rooms at the rear of the hotel.

This was a surprise 2 night 50th Birthday break for me, booked by my husband and daughter. We had a very warm welcome from the owner Magda and had a lovely room next to a little courtyard (room 22) so it was very quiet. Our daughter was in room 21 on the ground floor at the back and also said it was quiet, despite being on the road. There was a large selection at breakfast in a delightful room overlooking a pretty walled garden. Everywhere from the bedroom to the public areas where spotlessly clean and fresh smelling. Excellent location just minutes walk from the Burg and Markt and also the canal. We would definitely recommend this Hotel and will return in the future.

Well run, friendly,a few minutes east of the Markt and Burg squares. Taxi from/to Station was 15/10 Euros respectively (A lot of one-way streets). Decor of public rooms slightly odd but rooms OK. Very clean and requests (for two beds and for facecloths) were happily provided. Breakfast - boiled egg, cold meats, cheese, cereal, yoghurt, tinned fruit, juice, pastries. Toiletries were all-in-one bath/shower/shampoo/conditioner, so take your own if this matters. Dreaded bathroom hair drier. Our friends found the beds too soft, we were fine. We all needed earplugs due to traffic noise, but nothing worse than expected in a city. There are two stairs in the hotel, the back one is a very steep spiral staircase which was difficult to manoeuvre and very hard on one of us who had a slightly dicky knee. This was the most problematic thing in the hotel. Otherwise everything in the room was exactly where you would want it, and plenty of coat hangers - thank you. Heating brilliant and very responsive- it was unseasonally cold. Owners advice was very helpful.

Room Tip: Beware rooms on the back which need navigating by a steep spiral staircase if you have the slightest...

A lovely friendly family run hotel, in a quiet location, but only a few minutes walk from the main square. Our room was clean and comfortable. The buffet style continental breakfast was excellent.
We enjoyed our 3 night stay there and would recommend it anybody.

We've just had a four nights stay in this very comfortable ideally located hotel. The room was clean, comfortable and our advance request (by email) for tea and coffee making facilities had been taken care of. The free WiFi service was excellent. Although close to the centre of Bruges it was very quiet. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The continental style buffet breakfast was excellent in a bright comfortable dining area. We have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

We spent a long weekend at the Anselmus. It is conveniently positioned for all the sites of Bruges.
The rooms are comfortable, well equipped and quiet. Breakfast is good. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful.
If you stay here you will not be disapointed.
Try the Gruuthusehof for a very reasonably priced good quality evening meal (It is essential to book in advance)
