Derag Livinghotel Düsseldorf4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I was only staying one night and the facilities were exactly what I needed: well presented, comfortable and contemporary. The room even had tea and coffee making facilities (unusual in Germany). Staff were kind and courteous. Breakfast was excellent too (with a copy of the Financial Times: Europe).
We stayed here for a three days visit of Düsseldorf. A very good hotel with friendly staff. They were also very helpfull (Stefan Mossner), with a complain about noisy neighburs. We straightaway got another room. And got a goodnight sleep. The breakfast is also very complete and Good. Also a good base, with the metro nearby. We recommend this hotel.
We very much enjoyed our stay! We travel frequently and Derag Livinghotels has once again exceeded our experienced expectations. A nicely appointed room perfectly located in a quiet neighborhood behind a beautiful church, 20 min walk to Rheinturn. Highly recommend!
There are 2 Derag Livinghotels in Dusseldorf and this one is not in Altstadt but quite near from Dusseldorf Bilk station which is easy to reach from the airport. It’s about 1,5 km walk from the hotel to Altstadt. The price versus quality level is one of the best I have had. We paid a little bit over 100€ per night and that included good level breakfast and I was really happy on that price. The only problem was that they ”lost” our football tickets but that’s another story...
The room was reserved at EUR 341 and when I got to the hotel I was informed that the reservation was cancelled and had to pay EUR 60 more per night. The person in the front desk who did my check in was not properly trained to handle this situation and turned rude. Plus the breakfast lounge is completely full of smell so when you go down for breakfast dressed for business then you smell like you have been cooking. I would not return, I am disapointed, specially for such a poor handling of the front desk staff.
Nice and comfortable stay in derag loving hotels as it was in centre of city and most of the shopping destinations are near by. Good and variety of continental breakfast as well for almost everyone there is something to eat. Both vegetarian and non-vegetarian.
It is our 4th booking to this hotel the last 5 years. It is very well located for visiting the must places of the city. The rooms are spacy and clean. The bathroom is very functional and there are kitchen facilities. There is underground parking facility for 15euro/night.
Good hotel, with great staff and delicious breakfast. Location is good, it's about a 15 min. walk to the centre. Room is nice, although it was very hot! But you can regulate the temperature en open the window. There was a complete kitchen in the room, which was a surprise!
Important to note: there are 2 Derag Livinghotels in Dusseldorf: Derag Livinghotel de Medici Dusseldorf (5 star) & Derag Livinghotel Dusseldorf (4 star). To be frank, somehow, when booking a flight & hotel package on Expedia I booked the 4 star hotel which is situated outside of the main part of the city. (30 minutes stroll - 20 minutes for fit, fast-walkers!). I meant to book the Medici hotel - which my wife kept reminding me!! Still, I want to be fair to this hotel, so I have waited a week before posting this review. It is a nice, clean, hotel close to the underground and with buses nearby. There is a supermarket, a couple of bars and some restaurants nearby. It appeared quite safe, although the neighbourhood does not compare to the city, which we really like. I rate it somewhere between average to good. It depends on the price you pay. In my opinion it is good value at £70/night, which is what we paid. Beds were okay, but the pillows were cheap and uncomfortable. Our room opposite the church was very noisy. You could hear traffic from the nearby roads day and night. Roadworks directly opposite started at 7.15am. For a first visit to a Derag Hotel which was not busy, it would have made our experience more enjoyable to have been given a quieter room. The small bar area by reception was far too smokey for us to enjoy a drink there. (The door was left open so cigarette smoke could be smelt in reception and beyond). Upon checking-in we were told the breakfast times and that it was 18 Euros each. Previous TA reviews meant we would not be having breakfast there. The room and suite were clean. it was only 4 stops to the AldStadt, which to be honest is arguably the best part of the city to stay. It is where everything goes on, the best bars, nightlife, eating places, Christmas Markets are. Disappointed that the Derag website gives SOME information, regarding getting to the hotel, but it is not accurate. There are underground trains you can take, buses and trams from the hotel, and more than one route back to the airport. It would be helpful and good for this Derag hotel if they described these. We wasted time walking and catching the one recommended route. Small things - but important if you are there for a few days. If you are on a budget then this hotel could be considered as an ideal hotel as a base. However, whilst we enjoyed our break in Dusseldorf, based on our experience at this hotel,we are unlikely to book a Derag Hotel again.
Stayed here for 3 weeks on a business trip . Was lucky to get upgraded to a suite which had a separate living room , bed room and small kitchen. The suite was well appointed. The property is well located with lot of eating places nearby. The river front is a short walk and is a nice place for a run. The kirchplatz metro station is bang opposite the hotel so commuting is not a problem . The breakfast is ok and enough to survive. Wast very happy with house keeping as they would not clean the room completely and an empty shampoo bottle would remain like that . Same with the kitchen . Any property with a kitchen should be cleaned including any crockery . I also thought not replenishing the toiletries was cheap .
