Repeat visit didn't disappoint

Posted Dec 4, 2016
Pros: It is clean, centrally located with friendly staff.
Location: It is also easy to walk everywhere but public transport is good, as the trams that circle the Ringstrasse pass the Hotel and Underground close by.
This was our second visit to the Hotel Capricorno and we were not disappointed. It is a small compact Hotel we had a room with a Balcony that overlooks the Danube Canal. The beds are comfy, with various pillow options, and they also provide a kettle for us Brit's who like our cup of tea abroad! It is easy to reach all the main attractions, buildings etc from the hotel's location, whether on foot or by using public transport. Travelling from the airport is easy and virtually direct, whether by train or bus. It has delightful restaurants nearby if you don't want to venture too far in the evening, and the Hotel staff will offer any suggestions. If I come back to Vienna I will again want to stay here.

very well positioned hotel

Posted Nov 22, 2016
Pros: The staff make this hotel, they are brilliant.
Location: Excellent location, on the edge of the city centre and near the canal. Great for sight seeing.
The hotel was very well positioned for sight seeing in Vienna. It is located near bus routes, an underground station and a taxi rank. The city centre is only a 5 minute walk away. The hotel is small but well laid out, comfortable and clean. The staff are exceptional - always polite and helpful and prepared to go the extra mile to provide excellent service.

Good hotel in Vienna

Posted Oct 9, 2016
Very near to the centre of Vienna with plenty of sights, shops and restaurants within walking distance. The tour tram and tube was just outside the hotel with a taxi rank close by. The twin room was small but comfortable. Lovely shower in the bathroom. The staff were very friendly and included breakfasts were really good with eggs, bacon etc cooked to order. Tea and coffee with cake available in the afternoon included in the room rate. The staff very happy to book tickets and give directions. I thoroughly recommend this hotel.

Trevligt hotell med centralt läge. Superb personal

Posted Oct 1, 2016
Pros: Personalen var helt utmärkande. Mycket fräsch och god frukost. Eftermiddagsfika på hotellet som gjorde att man trivdes. Rent och snyggt. Sköna sängar
Cons: Ventilationen var något högljudd, dock ett marginellt problem.
Location: Centralt läge, gångavstånd till mycket. Schwedenplats är en knutpunkt. Eftersom kommunikationerna är så bra kan man lätt ta sig överallt.
Vi firade min man 70 årsdag med fem dagar i Wien. Hotellet visade sig vara ett ypperligt val. Centralt, gångavstånd till det mesta. Mycket bra allmänna kommunikationer precis vid hotellet. Vackra omgivningar, gott om caféer, restauranger mm. Och den fantastiska italienska glassbaren vid Schwedenplatz. Vi var även på en orgelkonsert i en av kyrkorna bredvid. Mycket att se och uppleva. En dag tog vi 31:an till Stammendorf och drack gott lokalt vin. Självklart gjorde vi också top 10. Ingen av oss hade tidigare varit i Wien.

Great time in Vienna

Posted Sep 19, 2016
Pros: It is in a great location and surrounded with restaurants. The staff are helpful and the hotel is very clean.
Cons: No
This is the best hotel we have stayed in for years. The service is first rate and the could not have been more comfortable or cleaner. The breakfast had a great selection and the waitress are very helpful even with my poor German.

Centrally located and excellent service

Posted Sep 16, 2016
Check in was great due to very warm and welcoming staff. The hotel is very clean and well kept. The staff is excellent. The location is central which means very close to activities. For some the location may be crowded however for a regular tourist this is an ideal location. Also keep in mind this is a 3 star very well kept facility. Do not expect 4 or 5 star amenities. Also this is more of a boutique hotel.

Great Affordable Location in the City Center

Posted Aug 30, 2016
Pros: Location, breakfast, tablet, transportation options, balcony off of breakfast area, afternoon cake, and renovated spaces.
Cons: Regular double room has 2 beds together so a mattress topper would help. Pictures of the rooms are a little misleading as those spaces are small.
Location: Right at Schwedenplatz with U-Bahn and Tram Stops. Danube boat stop across the street. Not far from Stephenplatz with restaurants.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. The regular double rooms are small, but fine for a couple. Opt out of the balcony as the street noise is quite loud. We used the balcony space off the breakfast area for afternoon cake and in the evening. Tissues shampoo/body wash, and liquid hand soap are provided, but bring bar soap, hair conditioner, and lotion. The tablet was helpful and the safe is large enough for a tablet or small computer. Transportation options are very convenient. There are multiple restaurants close by so ask for suggestions from the hotel staff This area also has many lower cost take-out food options. Breakfast is excellent. The only negative is you have to ask for tea or coffee refills and it gets quite busy at times. You can get a to-go breakfast box if you need to leave before 6:30 and the hours are longer than most hotels. We did not realize this until after the time to ask, but the staff helped us get tea and coffee the morning we left. There are two grocery stores 3 to 5 minutes away and also a BP mini-mart for when other stores are closed on Sunday.
