Fantastic location, friendly and helpful staff, and the breakfast was way beyond what I was expecting. I loved the afternoon tea and cake that the hotel cafe provides. It was a welcoming treat after exploring Vienna in the cold weather! The rooms are comfortable (although a little too warm!) and the bathrooms and shower was lovely. The hotel is also...

We had a great stay at the Capricorn. Everyone there made an extra effort to be make our stay comfortable and enjoyable. This started with the friendly greeting we received when we first arrived, jet lagged from our long flight. The breakfast room is light and airy with fabulous coffee and eggs cooked to order. And very often, when we...

I would not stay anywhere else while in Vienna. The Hotel Capricorno is clean, friendly and in all ways accommodating. My special thanks to Claudia, the manager. I wish I knew the names of the girls we saw each morning a breakfast, they were so friendly and very efficient. We looked forward to each morning's breakfast--great food and welcoming faces....

We booked this hotel on a wim, and were super happy. First of all, it is a 2 minute walk to the Schwedenplatz U-Bahn stop, and so it is super easy to get to and travel from. Second, the people were very friendly and the rooms nice and modern. Lastly, we loved the breakfast. They had lots of good stuff...

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As cheerful and colorful as life itself, the Hotel Capricorno appeals to everyone who wishes to experience vibrant Vienna in the heart of the city. In the form of selected motives on wallpaper, Vienna's landmarks accompany guests all the way to their hotel room, so guests have the feeling of being in the middle of Vienna even when they are in the hotel. The 42 rooms, many of them with balcony, designed in many strong colors, are all air-conditioned and offer a tablet with information and WLAN - in addition to the free WLAN throughout the hotel and Sky programs on flat-screen TVs. Its central location directly at Schwedenplatz makes it possible to reach everything quickly. You can walk to St. Stephan's Cathedral in just five minutes. The underground and trams, as well as the landing stage of the Twin City Liner are right outside the door. Cars can be parked securely in the garage. The Capricorno is one of five Schick Hotels Vienna 'Over a century of Viennese Charm', and there is nowhere better to experience Vienna LIVE than here. ... more   less
