Hotel Donau
Ranked #1 of 10 Donauworth B&B and Inns
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Very convenient for Danube cycle holiday. Nice hotel, good location and few minutes walk into town. Although very few places to eat in town- we found only one pub open that served food. Good bike storage and use of washing machine and tumble dryer ( I was charged 5 euros which I thought was reasonable) . Friendly staff and good quality breakfast.

We stayed at this family-owned hotel during a recent family cycling trip along the Danube/Donau. It was a great experience. The hotel is right next to the main bridge over the Danube, so a very convenient and scenic location.

I can't say enough about how friendly and hospitable the staff are. Hans was there to greet us, show us around the hotel, and help take our luggage to our rooms.

The rooms are modern and comfortable, with lots of nice touches - a pitcher of cool water, a plate with a couple of apples, chocolates on the pillows. Whether by intention or happenstance, the hotel seems to attract lots of Danube cyclists, and the hotel has several garages for securely storing bikes overnight. There is on-site parking for maybe a dozen cars - just the right amount for this small hotel, I think - with some additional parking available on the street.

The hotel consists of two buildings. The main/front building has the reception desk, restaurant, and office on the first floor, with one or two floors of guest rooms above. Then, across a nice courtyard/patio in the back, there is another (newer, probably) building with three floors of guest rooms. The front building has a porch where one can have a beer or, in the evening, dinner.

Everything is perfectly pleasant here. The only drawback was that our room got a little warm in the evening, and there is no air conditioning in the guest rooms (at least not that we could see). But it is quiet outside, and the windows have screens to prevent bugs and light from coming in, so it was pleasant sleeping with the windows open.

It's a very easy and attractive walk across the river into the main part of town, with a bunch of restaurants on Ried Isle, probably no more than a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel.

Room Tip: We were in the rear building, on the second floor, and the room was very quiet. I suspect even the r...

Of the four hotels where we stayed on our recent trip to Germany, this was - without doubt - the most hospitable, welcoming and comfortable. The candies on the pillow, fresh fruit, bottled water and flowers in the room immediately communicated that this was a place to relax and rest comfortably. The breakfast buffet was exceptional with a wide variety of breads, cereals, yogurt, fruit, juices and coldcuts. The coffee was perfection. If you are in the Donau area, I highly recommend a stay at the Hotel Donau.

When visiting a relative in Donauwörth we needed a place to stay with our small dog. This hotel is pet friendly. Hotel Donau is located in the centre, basically a few minutes walking distance to the Ried isle and the shopping street. Comfortable and modern room, great bathroom with large shower. The hotel breakfasts we've had in Germany all have been very good, same here! Good choice of bread, cereals, meat/cheese and fruit.

This was a great place to stay. The room and bath were large and clean. The chocolates and apple on the bed were good. The other guests were helpful and friendly. Hans, the host, was helpful as were the other employees. Restaurants on the other side of the river were in walking distance, and the breakfast was excellent. Parking was free, next to the hotel, and just off the main strasse.

We found this hotel to be excellent. The hosts spoke good English, their service was excellent, the breakfast was plentiful and delicious. The location was perfect, only a small walk to the city centre. The beds were very comfortable, the bathroom was beautiful. The free parking right on the property was a big plus. We would definitely stay here again.
