Altstadt-Gastehaus Drewes Wale
Ranked #8 of 21 Hotels in Luneburg
Reviewed 29 March 2014

I have nothing but praise for this guest house and will certainly be visiting again! Wonderful old atmospheric building and rooms but all the modern amenities you can wish for. I really can't fault it. Knocks the spots off many hotels and is an excellent base to discover a fascinating city.

This very old building was rescued by its current owners from being a derelict porn cinema. They have lovingly refurbished this historic building, which in former centuries hosted a brewery into a little boutique style hotel with modern amenities. It hosts only eleven rooms, including larger suits and is well placed for exploring the historic centre of beautiful Lüneburg.

Our mobile phone navigation took us straight to the car park without any problems. We arrived on a Sunday night and as this is a small guest house without reception we needed our access code to enter the building. We took the rooms we had been assigned and went out with keys. We paid the owner during the comprehensive breakfast the next morning.

One warning for international visitors, as sometimes happens in Germany, they only accept cash in Euros, no debit or credit cars.

Room Tip: Be aware that you may hear church bells at night due to the location in the historic centre.

Although difficult to find, once there we got a superb room with all amenities. The building from 1489 has been renovated and carefully restored by the owners. The self service buffet offered all youcould ask for including a boiled egg kept in a thermos container to keep it warm. Short walking distance ti city center which apart from Christmas stalls offers a wide selection of stores.

We stayed at the guesthouse whilst visiting family nearby. We had a large suite, mainly because that was all that was available. It was a beautiful building, and the rooms were well decorated and very clean. The breakfast was a self service buffet, but was very generous and well presented.
I would recommend this to anyone, and would definitely visit again.

When looking for accomodtion in Lüneburg we found this guest house. It really is a wonderful place to spend a few nights visiting Lüneburg. A former brewery (from 1400 till 1900) is was carefully and absolutely tastefull restored by the owners in 2004 leaving a few bricks and joists/beams to be seen. You park for 5 € per night right behind the building, breakfast is offered at an additional price. Lüneburg is full of restaurants, just be careful to reserve a table when you come at peak times (weeken, tourist season, christmas market). We enjoyed the accomodation as well as the VERY close location near to the town center (10 minutes walk). It actually is a very quiet place to stay.
