Stayed for a four night break. Had looked at lots of 4/5 star hotels and then stumbled on this one (via Eurostar) which looked to have more character and more of a personal touch.
From the moment we arrived staff were friendly and helpful (but not intrusive). We'd been delayed on our journey and knew that getting a table at a good restaurant might be tricky, but we asked for suggestions which were helpfully drawn on a map and enabled us to find a really good quality, good value meal without spending too much time wandering around the town. The high standard of service never faltered throughout our stay.
The standard of cleanliness in the Anselmus really stood out - the room and communal areas were all spotless, and the beautiful little courtyard garden was also well maintained. The room certainly had character (the floor sloped and it was up some very steep steps!) but I had some of the best nights' sleep in ages. It is quite near a hostel which may produce a bit of noise if you need to keep the windows open, but it was generally quieter than any hotel I've stayed at in London.
Location is excellent - a couple of minutes walk got you either to the canal or to the two squares, without being right in the bustle of the main tourist areas.
Breakfast was continental style with a small but regularly topped up selection of bread rolls/pastries, cereal, plenty of cold meats, cheeses and fruit. Boiled eggs were also offered every day along with a plentiful supply of coffee.
Definitely want to go back to this hotel again!
