First of all they have a very small and old lobby. The rooms aren't so spacious too and it is really hot in them. The executive room, the one we had, is too expensive for the comfort it is suppose to have. No air conditionning in the winter (to get some fresh air) because it smells a little strange in... More

We stayed at the Capricorno for the third time earlier this month and it was as excellent as usual. We were greeted by the Manageress who told us that the hotel will be closed for several weeks from the end of the first week in January 15 to the beginning of March. The hotel is going to be entirely gutted,... More

Strongly recommend the Capricorno hotel if you're visiting Vienna. It's location is perfect, in the city centre. And the U-bahn is located almost at the front of the hotel, so from there can you take the U1/U4 directly to Schloss Schonbrunn, or the Stephansdom or the Hofburg for instance. The outside of the hotel isn't spectacular, but the inside of... More

This hotel comes at a reasonable price, is very well situated being close to the old town, and to the Airport Bus stop, and metro stations. The rooms were spacious and clean, the breakfast nicely done, and the reception staff were friendly and accommodation, and seemed very keen to make our brief stay enjoyable.

A nice little hotel. Staff were amazingly friendly. Nothing was too much trouble. Great breakfast. Rooms were big and beds very comfortable. The best thing was the location. Opposite Shwedenplatz metro and round the corner from St Stephens, Mozart Haus and the opera. You could walk everywhere! Great links to airport too. Only negative was the tired decor although they...

We book this hotel for a business trip because it was relatively cheap in comparison to other hotels. It's right out of the Schwedenplatz metro station. Right now there are some renovation works on the outside of the hotel. The staff is really nice, helpful and gentle. The hotel is quite worn out, but the room was quite big and... More

The location is very near Schwedenplatz metro entrance and many good restaurants and shops. My room was large with a balcony and had a spacious walk-in shower. All the staff were very friendly and breakfast is served from 6:30 to 11:00.
