This place was great. I had the single room which was perfect for one person. Everything was clean. THE ROOM WAS SOUND PROOF. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The breakfast was great! Things of note for the single rooms: if you are a bigger person, say 6'4 or a person on the larger size chose a another room....

Just stayed for four nights on our trip to Austria. The hotel is lovely and very clean. The breakfast was very nice. The hotel is near to all the sights and the shops and many bars and restaurants.

This hotel is superb. It's clean and comfortable in an excellent location with very friendly and efficient staff. Especially Deanna from the breakfast crew smiley and "on it"! The hotel itself is very quiet despite the central location. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel for a Viennese break.

This hotel is steps from the easy to use Vienna metro system and from the boats using the Danube. Modern and clean. Good quiet AC allows keeping windows closed against street noise. Like many only one down comforter even in warm weather. Why don't they have a light weight blanket for summer? Good breakfast buffet.

Neighbourhood 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 centre. 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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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. The 42 rooms, many of them with balcony, designed in many strong colors, are all air-conditioned and offer a tablet with information and WLAN - in addition to the free WLAN throughout the hotel and Sky programs on flat-screen TVs. Its central location directly at Schwedenplatz makes it possible to reach everything quickly. You can walk to St. Stephan's Cathedral in just five minutes. The underground and trams, as well as the landing stage of the Twin City Liner are right outside the door. Cars can be parked securely in the garage. The Capricorno is one of five Schick Hotels Vienna 'Over a century of Viennese Charm', and there is nowhere better to experience Vienna LIVE than here. ... more   less
