“Unique historic accommodation”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

Lubeck is a beautiful historic town, that found a way to incorporate severe architectural losses, to explore on foot. Hotel Anno 1216 had recently opened when we stayed there (May 2012) and it has been tastefully restored and converted.
As the reception is not available 24 hours a day, I prefer to call this a B&B, though top end.
The very helpful staff was available for checking in and out and for breakfast. Breakfast is made on the spot, therefore fresh and very appealing. We stayed in the suite on the entresol overlooking the court, which was beautifully furnished in a restrained way and well incorporated with the historic elements. The room as well as the bathroom were very spacious and well equiped; the bedding was excellent. A complimentory tray with coffee and tea making facilities in the rooms, with some fresh biscuits (!), would make up for unstaffed moments.
Recommended for those who appreciate staying in top end historic accommadations.

The Hotel Anno 1216 is in Lübeck's oldest building. It has retained the historic charm and yet the rooms have been upgraded fully and tastefully to our 21st century comfort standards. Our hotel host was very helpful in assisting us with dinner reservations and suggestions for our time in Lübeck. The breakfasts were excellent. I've been on a restricted diet, and requested what I needed, if possible. The chef was very accomodating - he took a special food shopping trip just for me. The next morning my requested stir-fry vegetables weren't just sliced. Each "slice" was hand carved beautifully! I've never seen anything like it! And delicious! The only suggestion I would make to the hotel would be to warm up the atmosphere in their common rooms a bit. It's fairly stark. And a pot of tea or something warm when we come in from Christmas markets in the afternoon would have been a welcome touch. But no complaints!

Lübeck is a pearl (not too far away from home in Sweden) and has the best Weihnachtsmarkt around. We come here every year and loved our stay at Hotel 1216: Historical, professional, clean and not too expensive.

We stayed at the Hotel Anno 1216 for two nights and had a great stay. We had the suite just off the lobby with the Baroque painted stucco ceiling. The suite is just gorgeous and has lots of charm with great hardwood floors and three huge windows that open onto a lovely courtyard. When we arrived we were met by an English-speaking gentleman who checked us in, showed us around our suite, suggested a better place to park, and helped with the luggage when we returned with it. He suggested some great restaurants then made the reservations for us. He also fixed and served our breakfast the next two mornings. Service could not have been better! The only drawback was the lack of a Wi-fi connection. The walls are too thick for it to work in this old building. I highly recommend the Hotel Anno 1216 in Luebeck.
