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.

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.
