Very comfortable stay in this well run hotel. The bottom level is all new, due to the 2013 floods. Very nice. We stayed for two nights. All staff are friendly and very helpful. The hotel reception (English) helped us book a group dinner at the excellent restaurant Heilg-Geist (yes do go there). There is always someone around to assist. Would... More

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.

I stayed at the Hotel Residenz one night after my river cruise. The staff were very helpful and my room was lovely. I had a great view of the Danube. The hotel is conveniently located making I easy to walk to the many attractions in Passau. I highly recommend this hotel.

We loved this hotel which is right on the river. Stayed only one night following a cycle and canal boat trip alongside the Danube River. We really appreciated the early breakfast before our early train trip to Berlin. Would have no hesitation in staying in the Hotel Residenz Passau again.

My husband and I began our Danube bike trip at this wonderful, small, customer service oriented hotel. We had an updated room overlooking the Danube River that couldn't have been more comfortable.

5 stars is not enough for the Residenz. From the time we arrived we felt like guests in some ones home. The room was quiet as a mouse for sleeping, the bed was most comfortable and the view of the river and the Fortress on the hill from the room was delightful. 112, 115 are both great rooms.
