"Elevator unusually small"

Clean, spacious room and newly renovated bathroom. Provides bedroom slippers too. Cubicle elevator is meant for one BIG, two average or three tiny humans only.

This is the perfect place for a stay in Vienna. Perfect location, easy access to transportation, within walking distance to most of the attractions, and a friendly helpful staff. I highly recommend this hotel.

"Central location/Easy access to train"

Enjoyed our stay at the Derag Living Hotel. Only had an issue with the shower not keeping water contained and ending up with water soaking the bathmat and drapes broken so that they would not slide open/closed easily. Great location with easy access ...

The room is spacious and nicely decorated. Small gestures like free minibar, coffe and water make a big difference and we appriciated the gesture very much. Personnel was very helpful, kind and professional. We missed slippers and bathrobes in the ...

"Great concept, Excellent hospitality , First class location"

This concept of combining hotel accommodation and ‘at home feel’ is a winner. And in addition the hotel lounge is luxurious, free Nespresso and water available and most important: the location is unbeatable. Only suggestion: change the NAME of th ...



"Perfect location. Great apartment"

We loved the apartment. The location could not have been easier for getting about the city, so much so that we barely used the expensive Vienna Card public transport tickets we had bought before travelling. Yes the lift is small, but it works fine. T ...

"Lovely hotel with very friendly staff"

Hotel was cosy with very friendly staff. It was a nice change from a large impersonal hotel. Our stay was too short in Vienna. We will come back to the hotel when we are next in Vienna.

"“We would not return and way to expensive for what it is.”"

The breakfast was very limited and the produce was not fresh, including the bread and sweets. The breakfast staff were unfriendly and rude. The room was not cleaned probably as they did not hoover the carpet or fold Pyjamas. The entrance/reception ar ...

"Dr Hank"

Excellent location, professional staff, walking distance to everything. The best of the best!!



"Really great hotel, staff and super location"

Only a couple of minor reasons for not giving it 5 stars and that is because the decor felt a little old and there were levers missing from the spa/shower Which made it hard to adjust and some instructions May have helped too. However it was spotless ...



"Just average"

The location of the hotel was good and the receptionist very helpful when asked to help. Breakfast was great and staff always helpful The Nespresso corner was nice, but the machine would not always work... In the negative side:: - there was a very in ...

This was our first time in Vienna and we couldn’t have asked for more in terms of the location and very helpful staff. Public transportation is just outside the door and we did all of our sightseeing either by foot or by metro & train. They eve ...
