This was the final day of our cycle tour and we were so relieved to find a great room with large bathroom waiting for us. Not only did free wifi actually work, but we got once code for up to five different devices. The staff were great. The breakfast was fantastic - the best we had experienced along the German... More

Very pleasant stay. Wonderful view, great lobby. Room was typical European city style, which is to say that it was clean, efficient and compact. Staff were exceedingly helpful and spoke fluent english. Our room overlooked the Danube and the Castle. Breakfast was wonderful. Its not the Fairmont but it is wonderful value for money.

Hotel Residenz Passau holds an enviable location, situated alongside the River Danube in the charming city of Passau. We booked a standard room at the last minute using the hotels own website. The reception area at the hotel and relaxation area at the front are charming and give the property a homely feel. Check in straightforward. 4 parking spots available... More

We had the Pleasure to spend one night in this Hotel. As we just arrived from central america we had a big jet leg and were still not used to the cold. The hotel and specially the night stuff did everything to make us feel welcome and warm. The breakfast is great and offers everything one can wish for.

Well trained staff, well equipped rooms, great offer of food for breakfast. Excellent location just on the river bank - yet minutes away from best restaurants in Passau. We always stay here on our way to Vienna, as Passau is a magical place with it's flea market, restaurants, views, and atmosphere.

We stayed here prior to a Danube river cruise, based on other reviews here on Trip Advisor, and it was a great experience. The staff was extremely helpful, the location convenient, and the room and breakfast were both very good. Be warned, though -- use the directions provided by the hotel to get there from the train station. The ones... More

Pros - friendly and efficient staff - well maintained and clean - spacious room - central location - nice lobby bar Cons - the hotel is under reconstruction which brings unpleasant noise in the morning - no restaurant - flat pillows Tip There are only 4 parking spots at the hotel so make sure you book before your arrival.
