The Anno 1216 is located within the historic city walls, at a stone's throw from Lübeck's pedestrian zone. The medieval building has been restored very tastefully and with attention to detail. The rooms are cozy and don't lack any of the modern appliances. The receptionist made us feel very welcome, as guests of the house rather than clients. Very recommendable!

My husband and I stayed here for three (3) nights, and we hadn't slept so well in ages! The hotel is very well located, only about 2 and a half blocks from the city center. The hotel is very charming, with an excellent (although a tiny bit expensive at 15 euros per person) breakfast. The room is spacious, there are many, many outlets for charging, there is plenty of space to hang and store clothes. The room service is also incredible. Some people have mentioned that there are no elevators and no mini fridge in the room, the stairs are normal, one story stairs, and we had bought a bottle of Champagne and we left it outside and it cooled down enough. We were there during "cold" weather so maybe this solution isn't for everyone. But apart from that, everything was wonderful. There's an option to open a big window and a small window, so we were cool during the night. There are several restaurants nearby, as well as a Rewe (small supermarket) 3 blocks away. There are no parking places that belong to the hotel, but across the river you can park your car for 6 euros per day. The staff at the hotel were extremely helpful and they were more than happy to recommend places to go and eat and things to do and see. I would def. stay there again, we were very, very happy with the hotel.

Room Tip: We had room 10, which looks out towards the river, nice double room!

The hotel resides in a totally renovated building from 1216, done with great style. Location is central, from the hotel we could easily walk around in the central island of Lübeck.
The service is impeccable: instead of the usual breakfast buffet, you are served individual plates, and you can order eggs cooked as you wish. Throughout the day, the receptionist will bring coffee to your room.
The receptionist leaves at 18.30, but an emergency number is available.
Instead of a noisy minibar, you can go to the snack and drink vending machine - an ingenious solution to the usual room noise! This of course requires you to climb the stairs all by yourself, since there is no elevator, but if climbing two stories of stairs poses a challenge (as it seemingly does for certain nationalities), more bland hotel options exist.
No hotel parking, but cheap public parking along the river.
I am certain to return to Hotel anno 1216.

Room Tip: Great corner view from number 8!

So there are no elevators and you and the innkeeper have to carry your bags up the steep flight of steps. So there is no one on staff after 7pm.
Those are the negitives..the rooms are glorious (we were in a double #10). Wifi fast, and many many available outlets for recharging. Great bathroom, many places to stow your gear. Sorry we are leaving today after 1 night.

The renovation that created this hotel was spectacular. It is a very attractive, stylish, modern hotel in a very old building right on the canal. But . . . aside from breakfast, there are no services. No air conditioning, no bar or restaurant, no elevator (20 steps) and no one on duty or in the building at night.

This is a converted old house from around 1216, now a small hotel with beautiful rooms. The service is very friendly, although being small not a full time reception, but they looked after us very well, with recommendations for food. Our room was on the first floor, very tastefully renovated with a mixture of new boutique hotel style fittings and old traditional furniture, very tastefully done, with the very old floor beams visible. The entrance hall and breakfast room are particularly lovely. The breakfast was also lovely.
It is located in the main island, only five minutes from the centre, with a lovely beer house brauberger next door, and other restaurants near by.

Thanks a lot for your review. We really appreciate that. Being a little hotel we just cannot offer the same as big hotels:-)
