The hotel gets an "A". The room and bedding were comfortable. The owners were helpful and friendly! The location on the river was a plus. We utilized the common rooms to meet with friends and appreciated the decor and ambience. The buffet breakfast was delicious with many good choices! Everything in Passau was within walking distance. Just a great place... More

We stayed at this hotel because it was the most expensive 4 star hotel in Passau, so we assumed it must be the best. Either all the other 4-star hotels (there are no 5 star) are terrible or this hotel is just overpriced. The hotel is very nice. There is parking (although about 100 metres down the road in the...

Dear Jungl3Boy, thank you very much for your detailed review. We are a little bit confused as you point out that 'the Hotel is very nice' and 'the breakfast is good, service good and the rooms are nice', on the other hand you are afraid that the other hotels must be terrible, if they are worse, what isn't really a...

Lobby with chairs, separate library for drinks and socializing, friendly staff, and rooms with a view of the river. Near to multiple sights and restaurants and only a 10 minute walk to the main shopping and restaurant area. Noting that a previous reviewer wanted wash clothes-you NEVER get such a thing in European hotels. We were on a bike tour,... More

2 of us stayed in a comfort room overlooking the river for 3 nights.This was the second time we had stayed in this hotel, a few years apart.

This is a mid to upper range hotel right on the river front. The hotel generally seems aimed at the older client and the decor is suitable for this market. The location is perfect for those taking a river cruise or the like. Although the hotel advertises that it has parking this is not exactly the case. Directly out the... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Passau. The hotel is in a wonderful location right on the Danube.

This is a wonderful hotel with a superb location on the banks of the Danube. Rooms are very well appointed, the staff members are exceptionally helpful and the breakfast was super. Parking was just a few steps down the road. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and just wish it could have been longer.
