Perfect location in Vienna

Posted Jan 15, 2018
Pros: The location, included breakfast, and afternoon tea
Cons: Completely satisfied with the stay
Location: Read comment above
Best thing about the Hotel Capricorno, apart from the free daily afternoon tea of cake and coffee, was the location. I hadn't done too much research on finding a hotel based on the transport facilities but completely lucked out with the Capricorno. Situated right next to the Schewedenplatz metro stops meant that hotel was at the intersection of the red and green lines. Red line advantages: - Direct connection from the Wien HBF central train station if you're coming into Vienna from another European city via train. - Direct connections to Old Town, although it's an easy 5-10 min walk Green line advantages: - Direct connection to the Schronbrunn palace metro stop (can't remember off the top of my head), but very convenient. Also directly outside the hotel is the stop for the Ring Road (Ringstrasse) tram. Finally, the other end of Schwendenplatz is a pick-up/drop-off location for the Vienna International airport bus connection. So if you're flying into or out of Vienna, for only 8 euros pp you can just take the bus to a stop with a less than 5 min walk to the hotel

Good location, friendly staff, great breakfast

Posted Jan 11, 2018
Pros: Location, good breakfast, quiet room, nice decor.
Cons: Tea/coffee making facilities in the room would be great, although you can buy these at reception.
Location: It's convenient for all the tourist activities in Vienna - nearly everything is walkable and the underground or tram is outside the door.
Hotel Capricorno is in a great location - all the main tourist sites are walkable, it's next to the canal, and has Schwedenplatz underground and trams just outside the door. Our room overlooked a side street. Despite the proximity to a main road, the room was really quiet. The rooms are well designed - comfortable, good shower, etc. The breakfast was excellent - good choice of cereals, bakery goods, a hot egg dish, fruit, etc. The free coffee and cake each afternoon was very welcome. The hotel has great decor, the staff are friendly.

Superb Hotel

Posted Jan 6, 2018
Pros: Staff friendliness, Entire Decor , Cleanliness , location, Breakfast buffet included in price, Room size. Centrally located
Location: Conveniently situated about a 5 minute walk to the central St Stephens Cathedral in the Inner Stadt ( the old town centre). Close to Metro and buses.
I came across this hotel in an Expedia search for a 3 night city centre trip and it compared favourably with other top Hotels in the locality without paying too much. I also liked the idea of the breakfast Buffet included in the price. What a find. Absolutely fantastic value. We flew into Vienna and took the S7 local rain direct to Wien Mitte station...absolute bargain of 4 Euro each and very comfortable. Bizarrely the return fare was only 2 Euros each from the ticket office in the Wien City Mall ? I thoroughly recommend the local train, easy to catch from airport . They do an alternative direct Train ( The CAT) for 12 Euro each Taxi was estimated between 30 - 50 Euro. The hotel is a 12 minute walk form the station...or about a 6 euro taxi ride. The Hotel is very welcoming , the staff all speak excellent English and are really helpful. Nothing is too much bother. The hotel was entirely refurbed in 2015 and has got quite a funky , modern look throughout. Rooms are spacious and bathrooms with plenty of space. Lovely walk in wet room, all kept very clean. Lovely little restaurant where breakfast was served, usual cold buffet, juices, breads etc and eggs cooked to order. The hotel also does a complimentary coffee and cake session every day 3 - 6 pm where you can help yourself to cake and pastries if you're there . There are no tea coffee facilities in the room , however , they will be provided if you ask. Throughly recommended and would definitely use again.

Great hotel for a pleasant stay in Vienna.

Posted Jan 3, 2018
Welcoming staff. Free drink and cake every afternoon. Mulled wine served every evening over Christmas and New Year was awesome. Good location to the central attractions and the underground. Room was lovely apart from being a bit small perhaps, but everything else was perfect.

Friendly hotel, good location

Posted Dec 24, 2017
I recently stayed in this hotel for 3 nights and would stay here again. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the shower was excellent. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was good. The hotel is a minutes walk from the u bahn (metro) and tram but also within walking distance of st stephens cathedral. The only downside for me was the lack of bar/restaurant but there are places around the hotel you could eat. I would recommend this hotel for a simple but comfortable place to stay.

Nice hotel with lovely staff

Posted Dec 9, 2017
Pros: Everything :)
Cons: Can’t think of anything to complain about although the lift was very cosy! Two adults and 2 large cases and that’s it. But it was functional ;)
Location: Lots of places to eat nearby. Tram & U Bahn less than 100 yards from the front door, with a 3 day travel pass for about £14 you can access all sights.
From the start to the end of our stay the staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Good location not too close for nightlife noise but good public transport links to get to any of the sights. Clean and comfortable room which was lovely and quiet at night. Breakfast was lovely with a wide choice of foods. The afternoon hot drink and cakes was a bonus. All in all we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff even produced a small cake and bottle of wine on my partners birthday :)
