Historical House in the Old Town

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on July 9, 2013

The hotel is located in a historical building which originates around 1300. The hotel website describes the history of the hotel very well so I don't have to repeat it all.
I had a standard room, the cheapest category. Not very big but okay for me. No complaints about bed and bathroom. Furnitured with replicas of late 18th century furniture. It faced the inner courtyard so it was quiet. The view from my window is shown in photo 3.

The location is hardly beatable for the old town and river cruises, a bit less convenient when coming from the train station on foot - better take the bus or a taxi.

The hotel building was featured in most news photos from June 2013 showing the flood - the ground floor was flooded up to the ceiling. They must have some renovation work to do this summer. However, their ground floor contains just the reception desk and some technical rooms. All guest rooms and the restaurant are on the upper floors. They know why, this wasn't their first flood. Their website does not (July 2013) indicate any closures so I hope they cope well with the damage. If you intend to stay there in summer 2013 you may want to enquire about the current state. They will, just like any other business in the city, need every Euro tourists might spend.

The building also hosts the Passau glass museum (separate entrance and entrance fee, also for hotel guests).

Unique Quality: - the historical building
- the breakfast room and restaurant are located on the 5th, the top floor (lift available) with a great view over the old town. The photos on my intro page were taken from the balcony outside the breakfast room.

Directions: Next to Rathaus (city hall) on the Danube bank

Glasmuseum and Hotel

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 20, 2010

Probably a great location for a quick stay in the area at the corner of a beautiful square on the Danube---keep in mind that the famous Rathouse and bell tower are immediately next door! The bells are beautiful but can be loud---actually not sure if they ring at night. The glass museum occupies alot of the front corner area, so the rooms for the hotel must be a little off the square. The prices as of last week are 40 euros--100 euros (suite) per night, very reasonable for a standard room. The website is in german only.

Unique Quality: great location

Directions: On the Danube

In the very centre, next to the townhall

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 12, 2005

Hotel "Wilder Mann" (wild man) is in the very centre of Passau, next to the townhall and just a few meters from the quai ,where most of the ships will leave for the cruises to Vienna, Budapest and even the Black Sea.

Unique Quality: Hotel Wilder Mann is the most traditional hotel in Passau and it's most famous guests were:
"mad" King Ludwig II of Bavaia and also
Empress Sissi, who stayed there in 1862 for 8 days, meeting her parents, duke Max and duchess Ludowika of Bavaria and her sister, Queen Marie of Bourbon-Neapel.

They have lots of great rooms, including the appartments that Sissi and Ludwig II had.

Directions: The hotel is opposite of the townhall of Passau
