Beautiful hotel with lovely rooms and a cosy library where tea and the most delicious cakes ever are served every afternoon to guests for free. The hotel staff are helpful and efficient and the place itself is full of nice little touches, like stories and poems placed around the rooms. The hotel is also in a very convenient location right...

We decided to take 3 days a short vacation in Passau before our Viking cruise started. It was a great decision. It was such a comfortable hotel. The location is the best- close to the cruise ship. The breakfast buffet was absolutely the best! The room was exellent. The owners are very friendly! Go back any time and reccommend to... More

The breakfast in the hotel was truly exceptional, providing a really big and high quality variety of choices for fresh milk products, juices, pastry, fruits, etc. It might have been the best breakfast I have been ever served considering 100+ hotels visited over the recent years. The staff is very kind and helpful, you do feel as a special guest.... More

This is the best hotel in the city. Spotless rooms, nice big bed and a nice view to the Danube. The common areas are always clean, with good lighting and there is always someone around to help. The bathroom was a bit small and the towels should be replaced because they feel a little old, but it was very clean.... More

The hotel is located in an old building with modern interior and lots of atmosphere on the banks of the Danube - and part of the old town. It doesn't get more central than that. Parking is a bit of a problem (you must make a reservation in advance) and not all rooms offer nice views, but other than that,... More
