10/10 Exceptional

Charismatic place and well located
Great location. Arrived late and place was locked but found directions to another hotel to gain access. (complexity for our trip) room was lovely and warm. Building was old and charismatic but there is a stair free newer annexe. Breakfast was a buffet style- cold meats cheeses etc- delicious. Hosts were lovely and friendly. Fabulous spot for exploring Bruges

Good location but…
The hotel has good location but no internet in the rooms (2nd floor), mold in the tube and bathroom ceiling. Breakfast was ok.

Great hotel right down the street from the Burg and Markt. The staff was so pleasant, particularly the man who greeted everyone at breakfast each morning and was quick to help in any way he could. Wish I knew his name so I could post it here, but you’ll know who he is as soon as you check in.

Best hotel we stayed at in Europe!!!
Everything about our experience here was amazing!! Bruges is the cutest town. This hotel was in walking distance of everything we wanted to see there, it was very convenient! The room was very comfortable and clean and the service was incredible! Bart went above and beyond to make sure our stay was perfect in every way! We traveled to many hotels on this trip and Hotel Anselmus was the BEST hotel we stayed at in Europe.
