Excellent location. lot of eating places around, close to boat piers that ply on the river, Hop-on Hop-off Bus right across from the front of the Hotel, etc. Really loved staying there from 14th May to 18th May and enjoyed the free afternoon (3 to 6 PM) tea/coffee with delicious pastries served for all the Hotel guests.

It's right next to all the restaurants and ice cream shops, a five min walk from all the special sites. The room was very clean and the breakfast was wonderful!

Your remark regarding the bathroom window has been noticed. This is actually a glass built in a wall at a height of about 150cm. It usually allows only the view at head height, providing... More

Hotel is in a good position close to underground and the airport bus stop. All the main attractions are within walking distance. Rooms are modern and well furnished. Staff are very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast is very good, with a good choice of cold buffet and a limited hot choice. There is free cake and tea/coffee between 3pm and 6pm,... More

Very good hotel, close to everything. Nice, well laid out rooms - no tea/coffee making facilities in rooms. Service overall was excellent with breakfast between 06:30 and 11:30. One minute walk to metro and just a few minutes to main Vienna streets.

Just returned from 4 nights at this hotel. Had an excellent stay, from start to finish staff were helpful and very pleasant. Room was clean, and considering busy location very quiet. Coffee and cake in the afternoon was a bonus! Would definitely stay here again.

The hotel is in a central location, close to the metro, restaurants and within a short walk of Stefansdom and the shopping area. The main museum district is about 15-20 mins walk. Schwedenplatz itself is not typical Vienna, fast food and a bit noisy but I didn't notice the noise inside the hotel. The hotel is modern. My room was... More

Service was excellent. Staff went out of their way to help where possible. A pleasant surprise was the tea /coffee time they have every afternoon for free. I didn't use it, but I could see the appeal. The room was a decent size but didn't come with an iron, which was no problem as one was promptly delivered. The hotel... More

Right in the midst of inner part of Vienna. Metro hub steps from front of hotel and major sightseeing minutes away. Not a luxury hotel, but room is comfortable and has all essentials. Nice breakfast with servers instead of self serve buffet. Easy to overlook dated lime green carpet and somewhat indifferent front desk. I would certainly return.

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood 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 center. 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.

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.
