We’ve stayed at the Kaiser Franz Joseph on about 6 occasions now and overall find all we need in a hotel. The staff are usually helpful, the rooms clean and cared for (not perfect ) but nothing that we considered a problem we spend more time in our ...

"”Always Franz Josef “"

The staff is very professional helpful and friendly. The rooms are confortable and clean and the hotel’s location is fantastic to reach the city center by tram. I had a fab stay at the Franz Josef.



"Nice expirience"

Hotel is clean, nice, good location.



"It had everything - except heating!"

Luckily I like a cool room to sleep in, as during the 3 days I stayed there the heating adjustment panel on the wall never worked. On the first night I took a picture of it and asked at reception and was told as it was Sunday they could only get some ...

"Mostly it was nice, comfortable and not very far from the center"

I was very pleased to make sure that choosing your hotel was the right decision. My wife and I noted good service, excellent breakfasts, and withal quite convenient location. We did not like only one thing: in our opinion, the bathroom has a very unc ...



"Amazing spacious elegant rooms"

I highly recommend Derag livinghotel Kaiser Franz Joseph for both tourists and work travelers.



"A truly pleasant stay"

A small glitch at check-in aside (failure of payment by debit card, which could have been shared responsibility of the card issuer as well), the nine nights at this hotel have been very comfortable and pleasant. A helpful staff, excellent condition o ...



"Poor check in"

We wait until 3 pm for the room even if I was a repeat client and some rooms were ready They gave me a wrong number room,.

"I like it"

I am staying here fourth time, and I hope that will be stay here more. I like rooms, I like how fast staff solve any problems. What I don't like: to noisy street under my window.



"Great experience"

Rooms clean and with a kitchen. Good wifi. Breakfast is nice. Had no problems at all.



"Not as good as photos"

We generally were pleased with hotel and services, but we expected new renovated fasion room as showed on the photos with white walls, clean look. Unfortunately we had our room on older part of the hotel which was much darker and probably wasn't look ...

The hotel has good instruments. In addition, the hotel is quite closed to Boku University.

"Good for short holiday!"

Very clean room, new furniture, a very good breakfast, more than enough, the mini-bar with beverages included in the room's price!

"very pleasant stay"

We stayed in one of the rooms with cooking facility. All very clean and everything functioned well. Room was a little warm but OK by the evening. No complaints, excellent price, great breakfast and safe underground parking.



"Our stay at the hotel was that it was neat and clean"

Our stay was very nice. The desk staff was fast and friendly. The people st the bakery were friendly and helpful



"The hotel met our expectations, good value for the price."

Only one event prevented a higher overall score. One afternoon upon our return to the room we found the door unlocked and ajar so that anyone could enter the room. The room was also unmade that day. Fortunately nothing was taken from the room. We ...

"Friendly service had gone down"

Reception does not provide friendly service. No clear information provided on checkout time. Finally had to pay extra money for checking out late. Refreshments (tea/coffee) not replaced everyday. Once in a week its been replaced which is unacceptable ...



"User-friendly amenities in room with simple design"

Good in renovated room facilities though hotel appears to be a bit old-fashioned . Like the small pantry and movable furniture. Counter reception lady staff not very friendly and helpful.



"Dr. H."

Overall good, but some of the front desk staff were not friendly or helpful. One gentleman on the evening shift though (tall, dark hair) was very helpful and friendly so I mostly waited until his shift to get help.

"Comfortable Stay with family"

We booked a superior maisonette at the Derag from 25/5-28/5 May for a family of 2+2. We arrived late night and to our surprise we had been upgraded to a family maisonette which had 2 bedrooms and a lounge area, a study area and ofcourse a kitchenett ...



"Imperial - only in name"

This hotel has an imperial name. That's the only thing that's imperial about it. The Wi-Fi did not work even though it was supposed to be free. The place is full of noisy tours. There is no ported to help a guest with luggage. They wanted payment in ...

Room are clean, they change sheet every day. The breakfast was lovely too.



"not so good like before"

Carpet in the room was old and dirty, in a shower almost no shower soap , tube from the shower was broken. Breakfast was very good and the waiters very kind

"Wonderful stay in Vienna"

The hotel is not in the city center but public transportation is so good in Vienna that it was absolutely no problem for us. There is a ubahn, tram and bus stop very very close by. We stayed for 10 days in a lively room. We read reviews about ling wa ...



"Hotel is good but some infrastructure are down"

Everything is good but oven and stove in my room was down and not available before I left.

Stay in between modern style and old one, and enjoy Austria life merged with German style what. I am glad to be your customer



"Room on 4th floor"

This time room cleaning wasn't so good as always, all drinks (coffee, tea, beer) were absent, the plug in the kitchen didn't work (manager on reception promised to send master for fixing this issue, but nothing happened). Service during my previous s ...
