Lovely city, hotel is clean contemporary but a little expensive for what it is. Breakfast rescued the situation. Make sure you get a window table. Long way from anywhere, even if you are starting from Hamburg.

The hotel is located right in the historic old town of Lüneburg. The rooms are extremely comfortable and pretty large. Despite being in a historic building everything is very modern and decent. Rooms are very quite. Best rooms offer a nice view over the river of the historic town. The staff is very friendly and responsive. Breakfast in the restaurant... More

Very comfortable rooms and an interesting sitting area above the canal. Historic buildings nearby and friendly staff. Good price. Wifi was good and parking nearby. A bit away from the DB. Good restaurants nearby

Stayed the one night at 'Hotel Altes Kaufhaus' in Luneburg when on a business trip and although the hotel is in a nice location right on the water by the old harbour and old crane I did not think my room, (room #417), justified the cost. It was a single room and was pretty basic, very small and felt cramped,... More

It's a nice hotel, but the internet connection was off from time to time. Great breakfast and freindly staff. Minibar prices ok, but the chocolate was damaged from heat. Nice view. Recommended if you are fine with three stars hotels.

Everything was great. Staff very helpful. I found the beds to be hard and the typical German pillows, I really don't like them. I wish they would offer another option. Breakfast was terrific. Rooms very near the entrance can be very loud with traffic noise and people coming or going.

I travel about 6 weeks a year for business, in Germany, France and the USA. This is now my favorite hotel in Germany. It is not at all showy, yet it is exceedingly comfortable -- large, quiet, well-furnished rooms, excellent beds and bathrooms, and a location at the center of everything. It also has a first-rate restaurant with a breakfast... More

I have stayed at the Altes Kaufhaus about 10 times now on short business trips and have always found this hotel to be excellent. The location is very nice situated alongside the river. The restaurant food is excellent along with the breakfasts. The only downside is that the car park is quite tight to get in and out of...

Basically, altes kaufhaus is a good hotel. Clean and quiet, and located at a beautiful place, and a lot of restaurants around. A good place for travelers. Furthermore, the breakfast is good, either. That's all.
