We stayed at the Hotel Capricorno for 7 nights. The outside of the hotel is nothing spectacular, very rundown and worn. The reception area was small but clear. Our room was on the first floor, near the breakfast area. The room itself was quite cramped and the bathroom tiny tiny. We had a large balcony overlooking a sidestreet. The room... More

I got the Vienna Airport Shuttle bus to Schwedenplatz and the hotel was at the opposite end of the street and took less than 3 minutes to walk to it. The hotel was clean, staff were helpfull and curtious. As I arrived late on Saturday night I was too tired to go to a restaurant so I went to the... More

My trip with a stay in Vienna was my fist international trip on my own, at 18 years old. I arrived early on a Sunday morning and managed to find my way to this hotel with minimal effort via the City Airport Train and one stop on the underground. When I got to the hotel I explained that I'd just... More

I had some reservations about booking at the hotel. I read the reviews and got mixed impressions. Some loved it while some had valid complaints. I had a picture of a somewhat rundown old hotel with dirty carpets, creaking floors and creepy, old hotel furniture. But it wasn't at all that bad... The hotel attendants were definitely friendly and helpful.... More

Located right across from the Danube river, a few steps from Schewedenplatz train station, next to an internet cafe and 25 steps from the best hot dogs in Vienna, this hotel offers great services for a great price. Although this hotel could not be rated as a four star in American standards, in Europe this rating is quite correct. After... More

What kind of 4* hotel has: no lounge, no bar, no dining room, no dressing-gowns, no shower-cap, no smellies, the worst, most uncomfortable and cheap beds ever experienced, fusty old red carpets hiding God-knows how many stains and seventies furniture in the rooms? Completely devoid of charm. Admittedly, the staff (minimal) were pleasant and the bathroom fairly clean, but no... More

Our family spent 6 nights in the Capricorno Hotel early in August. The weather was unseasonably wet in Vienna and we were very pleased to experience peace and comfort at this hotel. We booked a double room and a twin room on-line. The double room was larger than the twin, it had a bath with shower attachment at bath level,... More

We recently spent three nights at the Capricorno and found it much to our liking. The location was excellent with many attractions within walking distance. The hotel itself was clean and the staff friendly and helpful. The reception staff were very helpful and booked our trips for us as well as giving good advice. The breakfast room was comfortable and... More

I spent one night at the Capricorno. I chose the hotel mostly based on location... it's literally a few steps away from the nearest subway station, it's about 3 minutes from the airport bus stop and just a few minutes by foot from Stephansdom and Kaertnerstrasse. I had a single room which was very small. I didn't mind for this... More
