I stayed here the third time and while I was pretty pleased the last times this time they obviously thought - since I am travelling alone - to put me in a small room. I had room 315 for 109 EUR / night. The booking reads - Premium room - Large double bed - 20 sqm Well ... I would...

Dear teaki78089, thank you very much for your review on Tripadvisor. We regret that you were not satisfied during your last visit. Your complaint appears even worse as you seemed to be quite happy with our hotel, if we may believe your review from last summer (July 12, 2016). But already there you had unfounded doubts concerning room sizes. Room...

Brilliant location, beautiful old building stunningly converted to provide charming, spacious comfortable public areas and amazing rooms - even the 'basic' rooms are a delight - and great views of the castle - wonderful collection of art books etc - very charming and efficient, helpful service - will definitely find an excuse to go back - can't recommend highly enough.

We loved the Hotel Residenz Passau! So warm and comfortable. Friendly owners and staff, wonderul breakfast buffet, clean and comfortable rooms with views of the river. Good location on the Danube and very close to Dom St. Stephan to visit the wonderful cathedral, hear the organ concert (Saturdays at noon) and go to the Christmas market. They helped us find...

This hotel is a real gem. I want to move in. There is a cute dachshound, extremey friendly staff, everything is clean and full of character with lots of love for detail. Free afternoon tea with cake and a delicious breakfast, a homely and cosy lobby to read or spend the afternoon. Unbeatable location. Rooms are spacious and super clean,...

This place has a riverside location with great views across to the Castle. It's extremely well run, friendly and professional. If you can get a riverside room but all have a good level of facilities. The style is modern classic, nothing to offend. We have travelled a lot but this place has probably the best breakfast offer we have encountered....

We visited on our Euro trip with my wife and child, amazing place, nice rooms, very nice bathrooms, excellent Frontdesk, and a very cute interior decoration, close to the town center and directly in front of the danube, can only recommend this awesome place.

We stayed here one night before embarking on a Danube River cruise. This is a charming Bavarian hotel right on the river. We had a large corner room facing the river which was quite nice and was quiet with the windows closed. We could walk to dinner. The staff was really very nice and attentive, and was able to provide...

Stayed for one night before our Danube river cruise. Location is excellent, next to the river and close to all main parts of the town of Passau. Twin bedded room was smaller than expected, bathroom was normal. Did not realize that the church bells of Passau ring all night: every hour on the hour and every 15 minutes on the...

Dear Donald997, thank you very much for making the effort to write a review on Tripadvisor.

We regret that this affected your complete visit. With kind regards from the...

This is not a Hilton or Marriott, but rather a fine Bavarian style hotel, with up to date features, a great staff and a good breakfast. Our room was relatively large with a view of the Danube. The short cruises on the river are right outside the door. The main sites of this wonderful town are nearby, as are several...
