This was the second time we stayed at this excellently situated hotel.
On our way by car from the south of France to Norway, we decided in Bavaria, to continue to Lübeck in order to beat the traffic next morning. We made a phone call to this hotel as we've stayed here before, and were quite satisfied then. They had one room available, and when I told the lovely girl on the phone, that we've stayed there before, she was absolutely thrilled. Wishing us the warmest welcome I've ever heard. The hotel is situated just by the river Trave, and in the middle of the city. With their own car-park it's no problem bringing the car. You must off load outside the entrance door first, and drive to the parking house on the other side of the river, but it takes apx. 3 minutes to walk back, so that is perfectly all-right.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms good sized with good beds. The only negative thing which can not be blamed at the hotel, are the numbers of young tourists partying outside by the river bed through the night. Breaking glass bottles and shouting and making a hell of noice. But of course that's nothing the hotel can do anything about. We slept through it anyway, to wake up the next morning to a fantastic breakfast. You can sit for a hour and enjoy if you want to. Talking about food, the first time we were there, we dined in the hotel restaurant situated just beside the hotel-entrance with it's own door. Lovely staff and the food was excellent.
I am stilled amazed that it is possible to find such a decent hotel for a prize like that anywhere in Europe. We paid 105 Euros for the room which was in fact a 3 bed room and as mentioned before the only one available. That included the breakfast. It doesn't come much better than that.

The Ringhotel Jensen in Lübeck is ideally located just inside the old town with a great position overlooking the waterfront. The price was remarkably good value for the place it is in. The good location and price are complemented by the friendliest hotel staff I have so far encountered. The front desk were very positive and encouraging of use of their language to varying degrees of customer competency while also of course speaking tourist languages.

The breakfast buffet is a traditional north German spread containing various meats, cereals, fruits, yoghurts, and of course plenty of breads. The meal room has an excellent ambience because the decor is exactly what on would hope to see in the Hanseatic capital - with enough touch of wood to place it nicely in the setting.

The rooms are cosy and clean. There is a little bit of noise from the waterfront but that is to be expected. The attached restaurant next door is popular with guests who like that sort of food.

If staying in Lübeck check out this one as a good place to stay.

Wonderful hotel in the old town facing the Holstentor and the river. Short walk from the train station and all the old town is a short walk away. The room was clean, the breakfast good and the staff friendly and helpful. There is an excellent fish restaurant next that can be reached without going outside--that can be important in January. There is an outside garden for summer dining. There are other excellent non tourist restaurants within a few blocks. If you like atmospheric hotels, this is it. Ask for a room with a view.

We stayed at the Ringhotel Jensen for 1 night after 3 nights in Hamburg. The hotel is in an ideal location situated just across the bridge in the old city centre of Lubeck - a 10-15 minute walk from the train and bus stations. The hotel rooms are clean and modern. Breakfast is a cold buffet with a good variety of food. The receptionist was extremely helpful with details of sites to visit in the centre and also the bus service to Lubeck Airport.
We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Stayed here on December 13th & 14th after 1 night in Hamburg. Short walk from Lubeck rail station going through the city gates (Holstentoor) before seeing the canal-side hotel on the right. Immediately impressed with the service at check-in, with a local map provided and advice given on where the Christamas markets were located.

Room (312 - I think) had a really good view, overlooking the Holstentoor and the canal. The room is somewhat old-fashioned but very clean and quiet, with a spacious functional bathroom. Beds were 2 x singles some way apart, but very comfortable and with good linen. Nice touch was 2 Christmas chocolate figures with a welcome note. This was exceeded the next day with a gift of chocolates 'from the Jensen gang' to my wife who was celebrating her birthday.

Breakfast was standard continental and everything was fresh. Again the service was spot-on, ensuring tables were cleared quickly to allow incoming guests to be seated imemdiately. The hotel also has a very good looking 'traditional' restaurant which seemed very popular with the locals. We didn't eat there but the food looked very good indeed (based on a passing glimpse).

Lubeck is very charming with the old town enclosed by a canal. The markets were not as impressive as Hamburg, but very friendly (and cheaper). There are not that many bars, but I'd recommend the Brauberger (on Alfstrasse), the Im Alten Zolln (on Muhlenstrasse) and Paulaners (on Breite Strasse - also had a huge dinner there, very good indeed). We also eat at an Italian just around the corner from the hotel (have lost the card unfortunately) and that also was very very impressive

The level of service continued through to check-out for an early flight back to Stansted where coffee was offered for the taxi ride. The receptionist was very friendly and left a lasting impression on us as we headed home. A charming 'traditional' hotel which is a must if you are staying in Lubeck.
