Very good position in quiet side street close to the centre of Bruges.
Staff were very friendly and very, very helpful, and they spoke English well.
Very good breakfast.
Everything spotlessly clean.
Good size bedroom.
I will definitely stay here again when I return to Bruges.

Room Tip: I would advise anyone with mobility problems to ask for a ground-floor room since the stairs are ste...

Lovely hotel in a wonderful city. The hotel is located in easy walking distance to the sights and restaurants (of which there are many).The hotel is very clean and comfortable and offers a great choice for breakfast which is replenished regularly during the breakfast period.

We stayed in room 1 which had recently been refurbished to a good standard and our only criticism was the hand held shower. Although ground floor and street facing we were not disturbed by either road noise or passers by.

We would recommend the Anselmus and hopefully will be able to make a return visit sometime.

This hotel is perfectly placed 5 minutes walk from the Burg square and in a quiet street near to lots of restaurants etc. The two proprietors were very helpful and friendly and spoke at least English, French, Spanish and Flemish very well. Our room was comfortable and clean, even has a tea tray and was a decent size. Breakfast, served in a delightful room with a conservatory and outside (weather permitting), offered a range of cold meats, cheese, pastries, fruit, cereal and boiled eggs. overall excellent and we enjoyed our stay and would return.

Room Tip: ground floor room was excellent

We have just come back from a weekend in Bruges and really enjoyed our stay at the Anselmus Hotel. The hotel was in a great location, near the canals and only a few minutes walk from Burg Square. Our room was at the back of the hotel and was very clean, but it was up some very steep stairs so perhaps not suitable for everyone but it had everything we needed and was perfect for us. The breakfast was a real advantage and regularly replenished and the wi-fi facility was very handy - these were definitely two of the reasons we booked this hotel in the first place. We would recommend the Anselmus to anyone visiting Bruges and we will be definitely be going back again.

We spent a lovely evening at the Anselmus Hotel. The owners were exceptionally friendly and helpful.The hotel is situated just a stones throw from the main market square yet oozes peace and tranquillity of being 'off the beaten track'. Our room was clean and comfortable with all the commodities you require. There was a relaxed feel about the hotel. The breakfast was delicious and substantial. We could not have asked for a more enjoyable or pleasnt place to stay. On this occassion, we did not have our 3 children with us but believe that they would have been made to feel as welcome as we were. The owner recommended some delighful and authentic places to eat and drink which we thoroughly enjoyed. We hope to return th Anselmus. Thank you Ronny and Magda.

The Anselmus is centrally located, and beautifully clean. We were warmly welcomed by the proprietor who was helpful in his suggestions for meals etc and gave us a city map and a pass for dicount at some attractions. We were in room 9 which was compact but well appointed. Breakfast is served in either a pretty dining room or an airy and spacious conservatory and was more than plentiful.Highly recommended but if you have luggage don't mess about, get a cab from the station, it's 10 - 15 euros and well worth it.

We have just returned from a really lovely, relaxing stay at the Anselmus Hotel.
On arrival at Bruges Station we had around a 25 min walk to the Hotel. The Anselmus is located down a quiet back street around 3 mins walk from the canals and a couple of minutes to the Burg Square.
On check in we were treated to a warm welcome and offered a map of the are along with a Regional City Pass which served as a discount card to may local attractions which came in very handy. We were located on the first floor in Room 25, this was at the back of the hotel overlooking the winter garden.
The room was very spacious, clean, quiet and comfortable. Had a peaceful,undisturbed nights sleep.The only negative would be that the shower head was hand held as other reviews have mentioned.
Breakfast was continental style,fresh and plentiful and was frequently replenished, could not fault it. It seemed as though most guests started emerging from their rooms around 8.45-9am, however, there are plenty of tables.(2 adjoining breakfast rooms and an outdoor patio dining area)
The official website photos are true to life. If you want a quirky, comfortable, welcoming hotel within walking distance of the must see sights of Bruges then book the Anselmus.
