I stayed here recently for a couple of nights with my two sisters. We had a three bedded room which was spacious and comfortable. Ronnie(?) was a lovely host, good sense of humour. Breakfast was tasty (nice coffee) and the breakfast room/conservatory was nice with a lovely little courtyard garden. We found it to be friendly and relaxed, in a good location, walkable to everything in Bruges. Contrary to what someone said in a previous review, I don't think it could be better! For what we paid/location etc, it was perfect for us and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

They even packed us a breakfast because they knew we had an early morning train to catch. The morning breakfasts were above expectation and the attention to detail was refreshing. Thank for a great stay!

We stayed for a weekend at the Anselmus Hotel in April. Welcomed by both husband and wife who run the hotel. Great central location with all of Bruges in walking distance. Spotlessly clean room & hotel throughout. Breakfast provided as part of our stay & more than enough choice of continental breakfast available, whilst seated in open and light breakfast room. Booked secure parking with the hotel directly & this was higher than expected at €18 per day. Would say to any further visitors whilst parking is secure it is expensive for the area, with a public car park nearby at approx half the cost. Overall great hotel, welcoming owners, clean facilities & would definitely stay again. Many thanks.

Very clean hotel in a superb position for walking to all the attractionel . We (self & wife) had room 24 which is at the back of the hotel. The room and bathroom are on the large size but to get to the room you have to negotiate a step spiral staircase (very narrow steps) so be aware if you struggle with stairs. Although at the back of the hotel the road can be noisy at night / early hours. No tea or coffee making facilities although we did read in the information pack in the room, on our last day, that we could have request this (it didn't state if this would attract an additional charge). Good breakfast served in nice breakfast room with usual continental choices with orange juice, tea or coffee.

One problem we found was the hand held shower, why they can't position a holder at a height which would allow the shower to be used correctly I don't know.

Bit pricy for what you get but I suppose when you compare with other hotels in Brugge it's fair!

Hope this help with you planning. Enjoy!

Room Tip: If you want tea/coffee making facilities ask for them on arrival!

We stayed for two nights at this gorgeous hotel and were not disappointed whatsoever. Hotel owners are very friendly, helpful and have a good sense of humour. Our room was very spacious with a double plus a single, also with a couple of arm chairs, coffee table and t.v. Bathroom was quite small and offered a bath with a shower handset. So not quite like having a shower, but it was sufficient for the time we were there. Everything was clean and gleaming so no complaints. Breakfast (buffet) can be taken in the breakfast room which extends to a glass conservatory. Garden seating is available also if the weather permits. Good selection on offer and hosts attentive to your tea/coffee needs.What was also great about the Anselmus is it's location. Literally a five minute walk and you are in the square with the Belfry and only minutes from here you can access all the other beautiful sights. You just don't appreciate how small Bruge is until you are actually walking around it and realise that what seems a big distance on a map actually is merely sometimes a few strides along the quaint cobbled streets. Many restaurants on offer, situated along the canal ways or within the many different market squares around. Many shops offering Belgium chocolates and waffles dipped in chocolate are a must! For 39 Euro you can have a horse and carriage ride around Bruge complete with your driver giving a running commentary on the history set before you. This was one magical place we were pleased we have seen and staying at the Anselmus was like the icing on the cake.

I stayed at the Hotel Anselmus for two nights. The owners were wonderful throughout: very helpful with all of my questions about touring in Bruges, restaurant choices, etc. The room was very clean, quiet, and quite large. Breakfast was served in a charming and sun-lit room with lovely gardens outside. The location is just perfect: close to the Markt and the Burg, but in a quiet residential area away from the tourist destinations. I will be back!

This hotel is well situated just a couple of blocks from Markt. It is on a quiet street and we never saw anything that would make us think this neighbourhood was anything but safe. The room was a good size, though simply decorated. The bathroom was modern. There was a wide selection at breakfast. The couple looking after the hotel were very attentive and looked after every need. This is a good choice for Bruges.
