Reviewed 10 May 2012

My son and I were looking for a good value place to stay for our first visit to Bruges and we surely struck gold with The Anselmus Hotel. It is located a few minutes from the Market Square and in a quiet area of town. The entrance lounge certainly had the "Wow factor" - lovely decor and welcoming, as was our hoste who explained everything we needed to know. Our room was spacious and beautifully furnished and had an excellent ajoining bathroom.

The breakfast room(s) again were spacious and led to a patio area, which unfortunately we couldn't use due to the disappointing weather. The choice breakfast food was excellent and could not be faulted - however, the toaster took forever and needs attention!

The hotel owner was charming and nothing was too much trouble for him to ensure our stay was satisfactory. It certainly was and I would not hesitate in returning there and warmly recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Just book at The Anselmus Hotel!!

We had a really good time in Bruges. The hotel was very appropriate for three of us, particularly since one of us needed assistance with stairs and there wasn't a lift due to the age and conservation of the building, so we were well situated in a ground floor room.
After staying in many hotels during my working career I found the Anselmus Hotel was extremely quiet and was hardly affected by noise from within or outside the building.
The decor and furniture were well maintained and adequately chosen to reflect the maturity of the building.
Ronnie and Magda were good hosts, obviously kept busy with their business but gave accurate information of the hotel and surrounding facilitates.
Breakfast was a good standard with most tastes catered for in a wonderful conservatory with a garden view.

First time on Eurostar - first time to Bruges. Lovely boutique hotel in quiet area of town, within walking distance of all the sights as well as the station. Proprietors extremely friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English. Rooms were clean and comfortable. . Breakfast, taken in a light and airy room looking out onto the courtyard garden, consisted of a well stocked buffet with plenty of choice and was regularly restocked.
The hotel gave us a discount card which came in useful when buying souvenirs and presents. Hotel staff with their local knowledge were also able to recommend restaurants for dinner, but make a reservation - especially at the weekend.
Top tip:- don't go up all the "towers" - but head for the brewery - not only do you get a rooftop view over the city but also a free dink when you get back to ground level!

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.
