What a transformation! For a long time, this historic building in the heritage-listed old town of Lübeck was a local fish storehouse and later a scrap trade warehouse. Now it provides stylish accommodation for overnight stays in the ambience of a modern British Gentlemen’s Club. Dating back to 1754, the building is situated near the River Trave in the old sailor’s quarter and comprises a front building, two side wings and an adjoining wing, as well as an inner courtyard. It has been renovated in keeping with its heritage-listed status and converted into a hotel with ten spacious guest rooms. There are three different room categories. Some have two floors and are equipped with a pantry, making them suitable for longer stays. Measuring between 30 and 50 square metres, all the rooms combine tradition and modernity: walls with shell limestone plastering and old timber beams radiate a sense of history, steel frame windows convey a loft-like atmosphere, while subdued colours, leather sofas and chairs, and tables with dark steel frames create an elegant masculine look.
What to do
In summer, trips to the Baltic Sea; in winter, Lübeck’s Christmas village with its numerous markets. Visits to the historic old town, the European Hanseatic Museum, the Buddenbrookhaus, the Günther Grass-Haus, and the Willy Brandt-Haus.
