Ida Boy-Ed wrote more than 70 novels and narrative volumes and influenced the cultural life of Lübeck with her Literature Salon. She was a sponsor of the young Thomas Mann. Her private literary events, with internationally known authors were supposedly responsible for Thomas Mann’s novel Buddenbrooks becoming famous throughout the world and eventually allowing him to be awarded with the Nobel Prize in Stockholm in 1901. We are proud to be able to contribute to sustaining her memory by dedicating to her this pretty room on the third floor.
This room is extremely quiet, since it is located overlooking the courtyard behind the hotel. From here you have a charming view over the rooftops of Lübeck’s little merchant houses. The two comfortable mahogany armchairs, in Louis XVI style, invite you to read a book and enjoy a cup of tea. The bathroom is of course in a modern classical style.
