Hotel in Bahnhof: Friendly Hotel

We stayed in this hotel for two nights in July 2014. The hotel is located in the station so is great for those arriving by train. To get to the entrance of the hotel we exited the station and turned left. We walked past the hotel at first as its sign was not that noticeable. It is next to a casino. You can also enter the hotel restaurant from the supermarket in the station. Check in takes place in the hotel restaurant. All the hotel staff were extremely friendly and pleasant.

Our room was clean but fairly basic. It was fine for us as it was just a place to sleep and wash.

Breakfast was very good at this hotel. It was not a buffet. It was brought to our table each morning. It included plenty of coffee, muesli with fruit and yoghurt, lots of fresh bread rolls, cheeses, eggs and cold meats.

The hotel's location is excellent for getting anywhere by train. We visited Regensburg from here and also travelled onwards to Vienna at the end of our stay. It is also very close to a Yorma and a Norma supermarket. It is not far from a Woolworths. It is an easy walk from here into the historical centre of Passau. Passau is an absolutely beautiful place with churches, a cathedral, fortresses, three rivers, excellent scenery, lots of restaurants.

This hotels big pluses are its location, its friendly staff and its breakfast. We also slept really well here. It was silent each night.

Pension Robner: A Pension house more than 1000 years

As she wandered around the old town, she naturally found this one and walked inside.

She saw an aged-man there and asked him whether this was a museum. He warmly told Doll Doll it's not a museum, but a pension. Then he told Doll Doll all museums were closed on Monday, but there was one still open (later she visited). Doll Doll asked whether she could have a look here. He warmly led her to the house and showed her. He told Doll Doll this building was from Roman time which was more than 1000 years, and Queen of Hungry visited and died here. So Doll Doll asked him,'if I stay here, can I hear her crying in the midnight?' He laughed.

Doll Doll felt this pension is quite unique and people(especially this old man) was quite warm and helpful.

A house more than 1000years and Queen of Hungry visited and died there.

HI Hostel Veste Oberhaus: Old medevial castle high above the town

I was very surprised by the location, I had not expected to stay in a castle! Especially not one on top of a hill where I had to climb a steep stairway all the way up with lots of luggage and then faced even more stairs inside the Tower where my room was. But the view from my keep was worth it, as my window overlooked the whole city and the Danube valley.

The rooms were large, very clean and with nice beds. There were tables to sit at too. It is a very good hostel. It does not have a kitchen though, they only serve breakfast in the morning.

I later found out that there is a bus going to the hostel from the main train station, so if you do not want to climb, take that!

Hostel Veste Oberhaus is located in the namesake old castle Veste Oberhaus. It is completely renovated inside. The facilities are modern, cozy and very clean. If you have the right room, it must be the hostel with the best view in all of Europe.

Pension Rößner: Cosy pension in the old town

Pension Rößner is a cosy little family hotel (more like a B&B) not far away from the conjuction point of the three rivers. As it's directly in the old town of Passau, the interesting sights can be reached easily by foot. All rooms are designed differently, you can take a look on each room on their internet page. Our room was good and spacious, it was at the street but as in the old town only limited traffic is allowed it was quite. If you want to have TV, you have to pay additional 3 Euro, and for parking next to the house it's 5 Euro per night. If you book this pension, I recommend to book a parking, otherwise you'd have problems to find a parking nearby and the parking garages are all expensive if you park there for a longer time!

The pension has a fitness room, but I haven't been there. You can rent bikes there, also there are often cyclists in the pension as there are nice cycling paths along the rivers. The breakfast room is a bit narrow, you may need to share a table with other people. But the breakfast was good! You also can get your breakfast on the veranda with view on the river Donau (Danube), but this costs 7 Euros.

I liked this pension, it's optimal situated in the old town and it's less expensive and more personal than the other big hotels in the old town!

Jugendherberge Veste Oberhaus: A great youth-hostel inside the castle

Inside one of the many buildings of Veste Oberhaus a modern youth-hostel was built, just opposite of the ticket-box of the castle.
It is the building with the red roof on my picture and obviously plenty of the rooms are under that roof.

When living in this hostel, you have to considder that it is high above the town and walking down to Passau might take about 20-30 minutes and I may not really recommend to walk these paths at night after having tasted a lot of Bavarian beers...
