We loved our stay. Excellent location to city center and right on the Danube. 20 steps away from the metro station and close to the airporter pick up location. The staff was great. Super friendly and helpful. Deanna on the breakfast team was awesome. Remembered our morning coffee orders and asked if that's what we'd like as soon as she...

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.

Dear Acat12341, thank you for your feedback and your nice compliments for our team, the breakfast offer and the assigned room.

Whenever I am in Vienna I stay in this hotel. It is easy to get from the airport and in walking distance of all main places of interest inVienna. All staff members are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacy and breakfast really good let alone afternoon coffee/tea served free.

Reviewed 19 March 2017

We spent the weekend just walking from the hotel to museums, shops and concerts since location is perfect. Room size was correct with a nice view and decoration was definitely not my style. The breakfast room is so small that we needed to queue every morning. Getting food from the tiny display tables is also uncomfortable

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
