This hotel is steps away from the metro system and is central to everything you want to see. The staff is very nice and the breakfast buffet is incredible. This place is an incredible value. You will be incredibly glad you stayed here.

The atmosphere in the hotel is very comfortable. The place is convenient, Wi-Fi was good enough, breakfast was good. The hotel is situated near metro station (150 m), 5 minutes walk from Stephansdom, 15 minutes walk form Hundertvasser.

A hotel with a 1950s police station charme, the rooms although nonsmoking smelled of cigarettes , they entire decor was generally filthy and dated. Not to mentioned the ongoing construction work, which the receptionist didn't bother mentioning. Don't rely on tv entertainment as it's temperamental. I really can't believe all these glorifying reviews, in summary certainly not a 4 star... More

Stay away from one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed. After checking in we realised the hotel is undergoing a refurbishment with workman and builders everywhere. The room offered smelled of cigarettes and was in the middle of a construction site. After complaining we were offered a different room, equally mediocre. Not mentioning the not functioning tv and...

Unfortunately, we had a very short stay in Vienna but were very happy with Hotel Capricorno. The service is good, breakfast is very varied, and the room was clean and spacious. However, some room remodelation was going on right next to our room and we had to walk through construction workers, dusty halls and ladders and the hotel personnel didn't... More

Rooms were clean, tidy, spacious (double room). Location is excellent, good spot to walk to the many sights in Vienna. Breakfast for me was the highlight, nice light airy breakfast room, with a good selection. All in all good place to stay.

My wife and I have stayed at the Hotel Capricorno twice - 2012 and 2013. It's located on Schwedenplatz, (which is on the Ringstrasse) right next to the Schwedenplatz U-bahn station and tram stops. The airport bus goes from nearby, too. The hotel looks somewhat unprepossessing from the outside (a modern, concrete edifice), but inside is neat, immaculately clean and... More
