    Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfasts ....very good choices. Conveniently situated for the subway.

    The safes in the rooms should be nearer eye level. Not always easy to operate when near the floor.

    The hotel was situated so centrally and we were within close proximity of hotel pickups for all our daily excursions. The hotel is also well situated for browsing and dining and enjoying the locals.

    the location close to underground train

    the beds were very hard

  • Single

    The staff was helpful, the hotel was very clean

    It's not quiet, and for the price we pay I would expect a better breakfast

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    The room was a good size and comfortable and the bathroom also a good size. The fixtures and fittings were a good quality and everything worked as expected. The cleaning staff were friendly and our room was kept cleaned well every day. The reception staff were helpful and friendly and spoke excellent English. The breakfasts were excellent and the staff there friendly.

    There were no drink making facilities in the room and the small reception had a small coffee making machine that was charged at 1.50 Euros. Not expensive but the reception was small and not enticing to sit in. There was no restaurant or bar so we were unable to eat at the hotel in the evening or to obtain a hot drink at the end of the day. I had not noticed this in the hotel details.

    I was very busy, because I participated in the International scientific congress, but all the sevice was excellent

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    Breakfast is good, staff very helpful. Good location on "the Ring", a few steps away from the Tram stop, U Bahn and Twin City Liner boat trips. Most main sights are however within walking distance.

  • Single

    Straightforward hotel on the edge of central Vienna. Right next to Schwedenplatz subway station (U1), with easy access to Austria Centre and airport train.

  • Single
    6.6

    Location is this hotel's best asset.

    I think it's overrated as a 4* hotel. A 3* rating would be more fair.

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    Ideal location in Vienna. On the edge of the old town, on top of the subway, 2 tram lines right outside, across the road from the ferry to Bratislava. Bright, clean little breakfast room with a very adequate breakfast buffet and efficient and friendly staff. Good-sized comfortable room.

    Sometimes noisy, as you would expect from a hotel right on Schwedenplatz.

  • Group of friends
    9.6

    I thought the front desk staff were excellent. Free internet was very good. Balcony on the room and the breakfast was great too.Also becuase of the flight cancellations the hotel was very understanding regarding short notide cancellation of the room. Thanks

    Excellent location, on walking distance of the city center and the metro station at 50 m, but still comfortable and not to busy.

  • Family with children
    10.0

    Everything was perfect, there is nothing to complain about, it was just what we wanted when we booked it. The breakfast was varied and plentiful, the service as prompt as possible.

  • Single

    The best thing about the hotel was its location, as everything could be accessed easily from here. The room was fine with god decore and very clean.

    As I was a lone traveller I was abit nervous of the breakfast times, and felt some of the staff could have been a bit friendlier.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    My answer to your first question was that we chose the Hotel Capricorno for it's location. We could walk almost everywhere. As well, trams and the subway were just steps away and very easy to use. Equal to the location was the price. It made staying in the "Innere Stadt" a possibilty on our travel budget. The staff are exceptionally welcoming, helpful and willing to answer questions. We enoyed the wonderful breakfast each morning. The availability of "wi-fi" made communication home easy. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable and we really enjoyed our balcony!
