HOTEL an der Marienkirche

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 23, 2012

The people at the reception are very friendly and helpfull. The hotel is in the centre of town so within walking distance to all the sights. The breakfast area is nice and the breakfast very good.There is parking for your car at the Marienkirche in front of the hotel. Free Wifi. The rooms are simple and a bit poor value for money. There is no airconditioning and fridge.

Very modern and stylish, right in the middle of town, affordable, and great breakfast. We loved the style of this place and had a good night's sleep. Perfect base from which to explore this pleasant and pretty city.

All that has been posted here before is spot on. Excellent location in the centre within walking distance to all the sights of the Old Town; spotless rooms with powerful hot showers and fluffy towels (but bath towel could be a bit bigger for those of us with fuller hips); a very welcome mini-fridge with a litre of fizzy mineral water replaced daily and space for a few brought-in tins; personal service from very helpful owners (two ladies?) and staff; superb quality German continental breakfast. Despite the central location it's not too noisy due to good soundproofing (at least in room 35), but the Marienkirche bells chime intermittently at night and every 15mins from 7.00a.m. Also, during our late August 2012 stay there was a new building being constructed next door, though our room had a printed apology for any disturbance caused (none really in our case) together with complimentary foam earplugs! At booking we had requested a kettle which was duly provided accompanied by a couple of mugs, sugar, biscuits and tea (but we had brought our own Yorkshire Teabags obviously).
Criticisms? Hard to find anything major:- but for those of a certain arthritic age, a climb to the third floor may well be a bit taxing due to the absence of a lift and the low ceilings in the staircase; also the "minimalist" furnishings in "compact" rooms may not suit (no overstuffed Chesterfields or cat-swinging space here!), though the firm bed was great for my spine!; and yes everyone here seems to get up at 6am, but then so do I. No, my only negative is that no parking was available when I booked over 6 months in advance, but even this was no great hardship as I was clearly informed of this by the owners at the time and found parking on the quayside next to the historic ships only a few hundred yards away at €5/24 hours. On my previous visit to Luebeck I stayed in one of the luxury business chain hotels outside the old town. That stay was tolerable, this one enjoyable - no comparison. Can't wait to go back to this historic town and this lovely hotel.

Best hotel in the old town because it has parking. With others you have to use the public pay parking across the river. Clean simple rooms and good breakfast and free wifi in the room. The Marienkirche chimes every quarter but you soon get used to it. Germany rises early and the church seems to echo conversation and traffic noise. Thomas Mann's house is across the road and a walk round the old town and a meal on the river is very rewarding after a full days travel. Third visit to this hotel.

The location is excellent - right by the Marienkirche in the centre of town, though one might say the hotel's plain modern appearance rather detracts from the church's setting! The breakfasts are good and the staff pleasant. The rooms, however, are small - the ensuite bathrooms particularly so. Reasonable value for money.NB no lift, no air conditioning.

Room Tip: At present (August 2012) there is a small building site next door. Noise starts quite early, necessi...

Good location near all the main sites of Lubeck. Breakfast was very good and plenty of choice. Rooms simple but clean, good value for money. However, noise can be a bit of an issue particularly near the stairs. During our stay people where up and about very early - not a place if you want a lie in!!! Staff very friendly and helpful.

We stayed at this lovely hotel for 1 night on our way back to Hamburg. Lübeck is a lovely city and well worth a visit, it has a nice charm. The hotel is centrally located near the centre of the city which is quite small so it is easy to get around on foot. The hotel offers parking in a church car park across the street for 6 euro per night.

Our room was on the 3rd floor up a few flights of stairs. It was quite large with a lovely big window in the bathroom looking out to the Marienkirche. The room was clean and very comfortable. The breakfast was also excellent and the hotel staff were very friendly and helpful.

Overall we would recommend staying here when you are in Lübeck, it is a lovely city.
