Type of rooms: Hotel Anno 1216Single Rooms:
Single room No.1 is of lavish proportions and is on the ground floor. Formerly used as a "Dornse" (a medieval term for a heated room), it has been transformed into an elegant and comfortable single room with modern facilities. This room has a particularly high ceiling.
Single room No. 5 is a popular choice and is located on the first floor. Monument preservation rules dictated that the height of the original ceiling be maintained during restoration, making it 30 cms lower than those in the other rooms. This room is therefore not recommended for taller guests.
Each of the exceptional double rooms stands out for its unique historical features. Some of the rooms have a view of the river, others face the historical Alfstraße or the inner courtyard, which is typical of the city of Lübeck. The comfortable box spring beds with eiderdowns and elegant, pure cotton-satin bedding guarantee a restful night's sleep. Anti allergy bedding can be provided on request. One large double bed. Room size approximately 23 sq m.

The magnificent combination of stucco and fresco in this palatial suite is unique in Lübeck. A cast of this impressive stucco can be seen in the Saint Annen Museum.
