I was in Wien from 18 to 22th October for the UEGW meeting. I choose this hotel for position and nice photos on the web site. My accommodation here was beautiful for location: it is very close to metro station and you can be in the centre or to Prater in only 5-10 minutes by walk; the metro lead you... 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.

Check-in was easy, staff was lovely, helpful with attractions, provided city events brochure and maps, apologized for the two very rainy days. We stayed 3 nights and this was a great location to everything. Super breakfast selection with meats, cheeses, breads and lots of muesli options and toppings, all included with room. Room was small but lovely and looked out... More

We only stayed at the hotel for one night but when I return to Vienna we'll definitely check the availability of this hotel. The location at Schwedenplatz is perfect for a city weekend. You have all the sights and shops within a few minutes walk. Also should you need to take the subway (U-bahn) it's right outside the hotel. Also... More

The hotel is in the heart of Vienna..only minutes away from the St. Stefan's Cathedral and next to u-bahn. Friendly staff especially the receptionists who went out of the their ways many times. We would return back.

Very basic hotel with some extras, for instance furnished balconies towards the river. Excellent location within walking distance anywhere downtown. Heavy nonstop traffic gives some disturbance. Spacious and bright rooms with interesting decoration. Breakfast room is not spacious but well functioning and ingredients are premium quality as well the service.

Hotel Capricorno is a well-priced hotel in the centre of Vienna. The hotel is a little worn but clean. The rooms are quiet, in spite of being on the ring road. The staff is friendly and the breakfast is fine. You can walk to most sights and if you prefer, you can get on a tram or the underground only... More
