Reviewed 14 December 2012

We stayed here 4 nights on a Eurostar package for our 40th wedding anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hotel is quite old, and the public areas are full of character and interesting furnishings. The bedroom was excellent: spacious, warm, comfortable and well furnished with very good beds and a spacious up to date bathroom. Very good breakfast in a lovely breakfast room. Excellent location - quiet, but very close to the centre, and all parts of historic Bruges within easy walking distance. I stongly recommend this hotel.

Just to add to all the reviews - clean, comfortable, very quiet. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there. We asked for a tea tray to come up and it was there within minutes. On the way to the Grote Markt there is a Carrefour Expres if you need a mini-supermarket (perhaps for more teabags etc). Our room (room 8) was large, warm, twin-bedded, with a large bathroom. The room has a free safe, the bathroom has a good hair-drier and the best toiletries I've come across. The owners are charming. Wifi worked beautifully. As someone else has mentioned, if you go Eurostar, it's great value (must get "Any Belgian Station" to get you from St Pancras to Bruges via Brussels Midi/Zuid or you will pay for the Bx-Bruges leg.) Breakfast rolls and pastries are freshly baked on the hotel premises. There is no lift and the stair treads are narrow, just take it easy going up and down. Cost of taxi from Bruges station to the hotel was Euro 8.8 plus tip, and it was worth paying this on a cold, grey,wet, Belgian December evening. Can't wait to go back!

The Anselmus Hotel proved an absolute gem, manageing to be both centrally located and very quiet. Being close to the Market Square with it's Christmas Market and plentiful restaurants, it was perfectly sited. We were given a warm welcome on arrival, with recommendations about the best places to eat and visit. The Hotel was absolutely spotless, the bedrooms extremely comfortable and the requested tea tray was immediately provided. Breakfast was perfect, the owners on hand to provide fresh tea and coffee and eggs were boiled to order. We booked the entire weekend through Eurostar, the transfer from the Eurostar to the regional train at Brussels was very simple with several trains every hour, making for a stress free journey. This was a very enjoyable visit, one we shall be repeating and recommending.

Room Tip: We had rooms 5 and 6, they were on the first floor, looking over the front of the hotel onto the str...

This hotel was just a short walk from the Market square and the Burg, - we really appreciated the central location. It was immaculately clean throughout.The room was warm and the beds were comfortable.The staff were cheerful and helpful. Booking a combined ticket (train and hotel) with Eurostar made it a very fair price. What more could you want?

Room Tip: Ground floor rooms available for those with mobility problems.

Hotel Anselmus is situated just 200 meters from the Main Square but is very quiet. Ron and Magda are most welcoming and informative and they made us feel very comfortable - nothing was too much trouble. The room was spotlessly clean and well furnished and the Hotel breakfast was superb, with fresh eggs offered together with an extensive buffet choice.
It would have been nice to have a kettle in the room with makes for an early cup of tea but this did not detract from our stay.
If you are planning a trip to Bruges you can feel confident in booking this Hotel.

This was a lovely gem. Went on the Eurostar had an any Belgian station ticket. Train to Brugge took about 50 minutes. The hotel was about a 15 minute walk from the station just off the Markt.
As soon as we arrived the owner was helpful giving us a map and pointing out interesting spots. Gave the code for the WiFi without us asking for us. The room was spacious and clean. Only negative was you had to ask for tea making facilities not quite sure why.
If you want a hotel close to all the museums and restaurants and bars, this is for you.
Breakfast was adequate lots of cheese meats and bread and pastries.
With the Eurostar and hotel great break for a bargain price.
