“Great apartment (apart from the builders' noise from next door)”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

Great apartment in a fantastic location. Very clean and spacious. Lots of little extras not normally associated with self catering apartments - beer and water in the fridge, 24 hour service desk, cleaning service, shower gel etc etc. Spoilt a bit by the pneumatic drill on the building site next door starting at 7.50am

The Derag Hotel is right in the centre of Vienna, 1 min walk from a tube station, 1 min from a Spar Gourmet grocery store and less than 10 in walk from cinema, shops, restaurants, etc...
Travelling to/from the airport couldn't be more straightforward. Just board the CAT train from the airport. 15 min later you'll exit at Wien Mitte (a shopping mall in the centre), where you'll be able to catch a tube/metro to Karlsplatz (the station closest to the hotel).
The apartment was clean and well equipped (especially the bathroom) and we found 2 complimentary bottles of water and 2 beers in the fridge upon arrival: a nice touch.
The Hotel staff is very helpful, courteous and discreet.
The only thing I wouldn't rate 5* is the apartment's interior design: a bit old-fashioned to our liking. Having said that, we did not spend much time inside - there are so many things to do in Vienna!- and the hotel ticked all the key boxes: cleanliness, practicality (kitchenette) and perfect location. Should we go back to Vienna, we would definitely book this hotel again.

After staying at Derag I hesitated to write this review at first, but I would have appreciated to read a review like this before I booked there. The facility is old and a bit outdated which I was okay with. What I wasn't okay with was the cleanlines and overall care given to this place.
The three main areas of opportunity are as followes... The walls were very scuffed up everywhere including our unit. This could easily have been touched up with a little paint. Our unit needed to have the carpets steam cleaned. Whomever stayed prior left white stains and spill stains all over the two red rugs! Anyone walking in couldn't have missed them. The floors needed a good buffing and a solid sealing. It hasn't been done in a while because surfice stains that normally need just a bit of cleaner to be removed were wore into the wood grain like a bad wine stain on a white carpet.
Had the price been right to stay here I wouldn't have written the review. However had the price been lower I probably wouldn't have picked the place as this is usually a signof lower standard of care.

Just back from a business trip to Vienna. This is my second stay here and the first time I had a great stay. The apartment was big and very quiet (facing the inner courtyard)

This time I was not as lucky. I received a room right on Kärntner Straße, a very nosy street with lots of traffic and all night buses and trams. The double pained windows helped but there was still street noise at all hours. The worst was road work being done with a jack hammer until 3:30 am. I can not imagine this was legal to do. No one needs sleep it seems in Vienna.

I did notice the building next store is being renovated with lots of construction going on. I can not speak from experience if this is bothersome or not.

The staff were very nice and my apartment was cleaned daily, including the 2-3 dirty dishes that were placed in the dishwasher.

I liked my stay but given the noise from the street and possible construction noise from next door I might look for another place to stay if life takes me back to Vienna.

Room Tip: Away from street.

as other reviewers have noted you'd be hard pressed to find a more central location than Derag and the comfort levels and staff are good, however our apartment (304) overlooked the major long term building works that are ongoing for the next few months. the staff will tell you they won't affect you but when the cement mixer starts up at 7am you'll soon know what's happening!

When it comes to choosing an apartment within walking distance to the centre of town, you couldn't ask for a better location than this. The apartment was small, but perfectly laid out, spotlessly clean, good bedding and the staff on reception were very friendly and helpful.
There were supermarkets nearby, the train station was across the road, the tram stop next door, the centre of town was barely a block away and the beginning of the hop on hop off bus was at the end of the street.
We were three women travelling on our own and always felt secure. There were many choices of places to eat nearby and tourist attractions were either within walking distance or had many transport options close by.
I would definately stay here again on my return to Vienna.
