This is a beautifully restored building but like many old buildings it does not have a lift and there is only one room downstairs. There is also a steep flight of steps from the street up to reception.
Parking is a bit of a nightmare here and is on-street parking meters so make sure you have some change!
Rooms was a good size and well furnished.
you are given a choice of breakfast options and we went for the small breakfast which was more than sufficient. Staff are helpful.
Location is very good on the side of the river and an easy walk into the centre of the town.
The downstairs suite is beautiful. The staff was wonderful. The breakfast was incredible. We were only stopping over in Lubeck for a night and could have stayed longer! A quaint city full of history!!!
Even though we decided to not go to Germany before the end of September (because not all German hotels have a. c.), it was still too hot in our room here in the north of Germany close to the Baltic Sea. We desperately needed a. c., but there was none.
Other than that it's beautifully renovated and really was built in 1216 (the reception gives you a brochure about the history of this house).
We had room 6 on the 2nd floor (which is the 1st floor in Germany) with windows towards Alfstrasse.
The breakfast is absolutely delicious and very filling. Lovely staff.
This is a very quiet location next to the river Trave. We stayed there Friday night and Saturday night and it was very peaceful. The mattress was great and the two single down comforters which are common in Germany are so much more convenient than the big kingsize down comforters in the US where one of two people in a bed usually is a linen hugger :).
There was no vent in the bathroom. The reading light was sufficient. The bed is 180 cm x 200 cm which is a bit wider than queen size.
Would have rated 5 stars if a. c. would be included.
This small hotel has been renovated with respect, care and taste. It's beautiful.
We were lucky to have booked room 3 which is a suite on the ground floor (maybe 4 steps to the door) looking out onto the internal courtyard garden.
The room was huge, light filled & stylishly furnished. It had a fabulous ceiling. The bed was very comfortable.
The bathroom was also large & well equipped.
I noticed early reviews say the hotel provides very little but our mini bar had complimentary water, cool drinks & beer which were refilled daily.
The toiletries in the bathroom were plentiful & nice quality.
The room came with robes & flip flops.
Housekeeping was impeccable.
The staff were pleasant & helpful although a little reserved which we don't mind.
The deal about pre booking breakfast does seem odd but we opted for the small breakfast & it was a nice light start to the day and trust me you won't go hungry in Lubeck.
Staff recommendations for dinner were good.
Location is also good - walking distance to most things Lubeck has to offer.
Honestly, we can't fault it.
It is not frequently that you can sleep in a building dating from 1216! The hotel is very nice! The decoration of the bedroom was very modern, and fitting very well to the building. The bed was super confortable and with a very good size.
The only thing that I found a bit disappointing was the breakfast. I did not find it very practical that you have to reserve the breakfast in advance (when you book the hotel room), and by then you also have to choose already if you want a small or big breakfast. Besides, on the day we were there, the breakfast was serve late (I assume the kitchen was having some problems, and that this does not happen every time, but it was a little bit annoying). I would certainly stay another time in this hotel, but probably skip breakfast.
