The green Isar River rolls outside the bedroom windows of Landshut's most distinctive hotel. Its modern steep red roof and white facade blend harmoniously with the waterside panorama, and crossing the river takes you over to the Old Town in minutes. Perhaps a little tired in places, the riverside location, good restaurant and friendly staff make up for that. The hotel offers special weekend rates on request.
YOU SHOULD KNOW The hotel has conference facilities for up to 250 people, which can mean it gets taken over by conference guests at times.
Rooms are fairly basic, but all have Wi-Fi and desks, and box-sprung beds. Windows can be opened, which is annoyingly unusual in many hotels.
Bathrooms are functional and clean. Some have showers and some bathtubs.
The lobby has the slightly tired, leather-chairs vibe of many slightly older hotels, but staff are welcoming and helpful.
The hotel has parking, including three charging stations for electric cars.
The hotel has two saunas and a gym, and provides bikes and e-bikes for guests, too.
Michel House, overlooking the river, is a pleasant spot for dinner, offering decent steak dishes. The hotel also has brunch on Sundays, and the breakfast is a large and tasty spread.
The hotel bar, right by the restaurant, is not bad, but in summer its real selling point is a courtyard beer garden that's welcoming to all, from children to pets.
The hotel is close to the main sights of pretty Landshut.
Augustiner an der St. Martinskirche (6-minute walk) is a good Bavarian restaurant right by the church. Or the buffet lunch at Pallas (7-minute walk) is a great deal, and you can sit outside in summer.
Cross the river for the relaxed ZAP Biergarten (4-minute walk), or Bradbury's (8-minute walk), for surprisingly top-quality cocktails.
WHY WE LIKE IT
A large, professional hotel raised by its lovely views of the River Isar, the property is not a bad base for those exploring Landshut and wider Bavaria. It has a family-friendly approach, a good breakfast and helpful staff.
