A bit of a caveat before I begin here, I hate being a solo traveler and hence some of you may find my reactions over the top. On reaching the hotel, I was a bit worried about the choice I made. While it didn't have completely run down exteriors, the aesthetic didn't appeal to me. I felt that the pics...

We received a warm welcome on our arrival and again when the same receptionist was working on the breakfast shift next morning. I can honestly say that the employees are some of the friendliest, happy and courteous we've encountered on our travels. We reserved a standard room with breakfast. Our room was spacious and comfortable with plenty of storage for...

We picked the hotel as it looked a good location - about a 10-15 minute walk from the main Viennese train station and 2 minutes from the underground - and were not disappointed. Due to an early morning flight from Edinburgh we arrived a couple of hours before the advertised check-in. We planned on just leaving our bags at reception...

We just stayed at this great little 4* hotel on Schwedenplatz at the edge of old town. The rooms are large by European standards and the bathrooms are wonderful and modern (I wanted to bring the shower home). We reserved a superior room with balcony, so the room had lots of light. There was no noise from the street--the sound...

Great, friendly, helpful staff! Location is perfect.... steps from the subway, right on the Canal (which is the best place for a later afternoon beer in Vienna) and a 5-10 minute walk from the main pedestrian areas.

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
