“Perfect, on a great location”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Hotel Anno 1216 is in the heart of the city, and offers a perfect accomodation: spacious room, well designed interior, and a really great shower. Nice restaurants nearby: check Tripadvisor! We have only missed air conditioning with temperatures reaching 30 degrees ( but agree that these are exceptional at the 'Ostseeküste'.

A lot of the places I stay pretty quickly blur into a vague recollection or even disappear from memory completely. Anno 1216 is one of a handful that will most likely be preserved in my memory - and mostly for good reasons. We had an enormous room with ornate plasterwork on the ground floor. It even had a little balcony where we could sit and take in the canal opposite. The room was sparsely but reasonably tastefully furnished and felt more like a large sitting room than a bedroom. It was a genuinely interesting experience just being in the room in this very old building. However, while memorable, Anno 1216 was less than completely satisfactory for several reasons. The first is that while it is called a hotel, it is really much more like a B&B. There are minimal staff and no-one at all before 7.30PM or after 7.30PM. There is no help with luggage or parking and no room service (just an empty bar fridge). It is pretty-well DIY - which is fine if that is what you are expecting and did not bother us too much - although it was a bit disconcerting to begin with. The second is that the bathroom was barely adequate - poor water pressure, not lot of space and very basic toiletries. The third is that there was no air conditioning and we had to sleep with the window open. As Anno 1216 fronts a busy road, there was a fair bit of noise. On the positive side it is well located and we were able to find street parking without too much difficulty. The person at the desk was pleasant enough but no more helpful than strictly necessary. In short, Anno 2016 offers a memorable experience but not a lot of amenity. I therefore recommend with reservations.

I can find no fault with this lovely hotel. An old house meticulously preserved and fitted out on the inside. Signs in the room explain it's history and layout. The room I had (No. 1) was very tastefully done and very convenient. Every small detail was clearly designed for the comfort of the guest. The service was prompt and gracious when I needed it and invisible when I didn't. Breakfast was nice but a bit clumsily served and to be frank i have eaten better, even in Germany. Location is fantastic and the prize was quite reasonable for what you get. This is not a luxury hotel - just a very good hotel.

This hotel is in a wonderful old building and my room was very comfortable, but a problem for me was that my room (number 1, a single room) was on the ground floor, right off the lobby, and faced onto the street. This didn't feel very private, and I later found it was impossible to sleep with the window open as there is a pub right next door -- you don't get noise from the pub itself, but people were always coming outside to smoke so there was an incessant stream of chatter and cigarette smoke coming in through the window. This was mid-week in April, so it wasn't too bad, but I imagine that at the height of summer it would be a grim choice between sleeping with the window shut in a hot room and putting up with the noise and smoke.

Everything else about the hotel was great -- the building is beautiful, the breakfast was delicious and the staff were very friendly and helpful. I would love to come back here (but stay in a different room)!

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!
