The name dates the premises, one of the oldest brick houses in Lübeck and so beautifully restored that staying in this former guildhall and residence seems like a real privilege. The spacious quarters keep the historic surroundings intact, and sleek, contemporary furnishings offset heavy timbers, stuccoed ceilings, frescoes, and other treasures. The handsome singles and doubles are commodious and attractive, while three suites installed in former salons are as impressive as the surroundings were meant to be. An excellent breakfast (extra) tops off a stay in these distinctive lodgings, and amenities include free phone calls within Europe and to the United States.
