“4 STAR??? ARE YOU KIDDING?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Im still in shock, this has got to be the worst 4 star hotel we have stayed in. I booked it because of the good reviews but it couldnt be further from the truth. The location maybe good but thats about it.The carpet leading up to the reception needs replacing, the receptionist does everything from checking people in to serving on the bar and preparing breakfast. It reminded me of a b&b but even then i wouldnt rate it 4 star. The restaurant is non existent, we were tired and hungry when we turned up but no chance of a snack, a pint of beer at the best, we had to go next door to another hotel to get a meal. Our room was very basic, no coffee/tea in the room, old wooden furniture, awful bed, i wouldnt like to moan too much but this is supposed to be 4 star and it just isnt. You can park your car outside the hotel and hope for the best or leave it in hotel`s garage which can barely take 8 cars and pay 10 euros for the pleasure. As for Passau itself i cant really comment, we were travelling back to england so didnt spend much time sightseeing.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011 via mobile

We were thrilled to find this hotel, which has parking underneath and was right near the excellent Christmas market. Of course, not quiet in the morning, because of traffic the other side of the river, but this is in the centre! So to be expected. Sauna was spotless and very relaxing, rooms spacious and receptionist lovely. WiFi included in rooms. Overall great value for money

Central location in Passau. Small hotel with view of the river Danube from the rooms. Everything was well functioning
Quiet town on a rainy Sunday evening in July

Excellent location. We stayed the first night in a room with a view of the river. This proved to be a mistake as at night there is a lot of noise on the river, and as the room was very hot we needed the window open. Not a good combination. For our second night we managed to change to a room at the side which had air conditioning. Slept well here. I would only stay here again, at least in sommer, if I had a room with A/C.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2010

Pros:
Very good location - just across from Danube and in heart of old town, several restaurants near by.
Good Internet access.
Good breakfast.
Good customer service, we had asked for hot water kettle - they didn't have it at the time, but they remembered to bring it to our room next day.
Looks a bit of walk from train station on the map but taxi to hotel was only 5 euro.
There is a beautiful garden and viewpoint next to exit on 2nd floor (opens in old town on hill).

Cons:
The room was bit damp, perhaps a side effect of staying next to the river and the fact the Hotel building is old construction (though interior is renovated).

Overall we got an excellent deal for our money - 200GBP for 4 nights - perhaps due to off-peak season.
