Assigning attributes from a poygon to another layer (spatial join?)

Hey everyone!
I have a small problem joining attribute tables of two polygon layers.
I have a building database and a inundation polygon layer, see attached picture (inundation also available as raster, if easier). I want to assign the corresponding  inundation classes ( 1,2,...5) to each individual building in my working area for a vulnerability assessment and add as a new column in my building attribute table.
I tried spatial join, but it would produce me only zero values for each building. Manaually is not an option ,as there are 5000 buildings.guess

 

Anyone any ideas? I guess its rather simple, but if u dont know the right tool...
Thanks guys!
