Exceptional 10.0
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.

The parking for the Hotel was the only horrible experience. If you weren't lucky enough for a parking spot about four blocks away you will end up with a spot with a 15-20 minute walk back. Brugge is not set up to accommodate people with vehicles.

A family run old B&B in great location
Seems like a senior couple run the hotel without any help, as we have never seen any worker other than them. The gentleman was extremely nice and adorable, and we immediately thought a person like him made you feel great staying there. Room is small which is typical Europe, with old windows, no elevator and facilities in the hotel. Breakfast included was ok. So it is more like a family run B&B and a quiet street which is walk-in distance from main areas of attractions. The two major negatives things are noisy floor because of the old wood, and a turning staircase with overly narrow woods each step. The staircase could be dangerous to people with physical disabilities and with heavy luggage. Overall I can stay there again as we can handle those problems.

Comfortable, authentic Bruge stay
Beautiful original features, large windows, comfortable beds. The owners spoke a variety of languages and were ready with a map of the town and tips for the best places to hire bikes etc. Breakfast was a delicious cold buffet with excellent coffee. No lift and some steep stairs which were tricky with the cases. Some slightly unusual moving of personal objects during daily servicing of the rooms, but the rooms were spotless as a result! Centrally located on a quiet street but just a 5 minute walk to the Markt square. Would definitely visit again.
