8/10 Very good

Sweet but no repeat
A very sweet hotel facing the water with lovely AC. I confirmed a breakfast box and taxi to the train station for 6:30 as breakfast was included but did not open until 7:00. No one was at the front desk to check-out and a sign stated they did not open until 7:00. This would have been helpful to know when I check-in. No taxi and no breakfast box. I had not paid my bill, so I left a note to charge my credit card and walked to the train station.

Highly recommended - one of the best.
Great hotel; cozy and comfortable with a super friendly staff. We stayed in 10 different hotels during our three weeks in Europe, most much more expensive, but Hotel Residenz Passau was our favorite.

Compact gem on the Danube
Although the room was small, it included everything we needed. The bathroom was tiny but so well arranged it didn't matter. The view of the river includes the many boats available for cruises, but the scene on the opposing bank is beautiful. The location is ideal, near shopping and restaurants and the boat cruises. We took a 2 hr cruise on the "Kristallschiff" that was truly lovely and relaxing. Elegant, with anything you could want to eat or drink. The scenery was gorgeous. Also, the hotel is located practically next door to the world famous Glass Museum Passau. The staff was friendly and helpful. We highly recommend this reasonable gem.
