"Family holiday with a small baby"

The location of the hotel was perfect for us since we were walking to all the sights with a stroller. We stayed in a suite, which was very comfortable and handy with the baby. We brought our own light travel bed with us. Small minus for the cleaning ...

"Great experience at Derag Livinghotel Großer Kurfürst"

We were very impressed with our top floor suite which was an upgrade from a standard room - the large bathroom especially was impressive. Staff were very nice and special thanks to the cocktail barman (apologies, do not know his name) - his Chriss Fi ...

We had good room with all required amenities including tea making facilities and free mini bar. Baby cot was also provided with no additional charge. The greatest bonus is that hotel provides to the guests during their stay a smartphone with internet ...

"Nice place in central Berlin"

Good location, in central Berlin, right at the metro station. Friendly, helpful staff. The room was spacious, clean and very comfortable. Gorgeous breakfast with hot and cold buffet.




We felt very good at this hotel. We will definitely come back. Clean, close to the metro station, close to sights, friendly staff. We already miss Berlin.



".good staff, nice hotel but uncomfortably hot and difficult to sleep."

Very helpful staff, nice hotel, but a hotel with 4 star and having no AC for the hottest season August was not comfortable. We just left after 2 days, Parking problem for travelers by car




Hotel service was OK. However, I regret that the air condition unity sets the temperature at 20 degree. In the middle of the summer, it is ridiculous because it means that the air condition can not be used. This is unfair to customers!

"T’en years ago it was probably a good hôte with 4stars"

The interior is outdated. A lot of things in the bathroom were rusted and the shower curtain was molded. When we asked to change it we got a new one ( half size of the bathtub and definitely not a new one ) there’s no air in the room, but when you ...

"Mr. S."

Everything was excellent, the breakfast was perfect. Team was friendly and professional. Thanks for the Birthday wishes and present. Much appreciated. Will definitely come again and recommend the hotel to friends and family.



"Nice hotel, but temperature control in room is problem"

Even in April temperature in room raises so much that it becomes to warm to sleep comfortably. Opening windows is no improvement, it is located on busy, noisy streets.



"Nice place, welll located"

We enjoy the hotel, I have to thank the present for my birthday. The room was big, and if I have to say something bad, the heating was so high and we were hot at night. The matter of sleeping at the same floor as the breakfast place was not a problem ...

Nice quite hotel, good breakfast although the breakfast room is small, on some days we had our breakfast downstairs in the foyer area, which is less claustrophobic.
