Dear Vijkash, We appreciate your review and thank you for informing us about your experience. Your improvement suggestion regarding the bathroom has been noticed and already passed to the team in order to control your room. Due to its central position directly at Schwedenplatz, the road can sometimes be noticed a bit louder, especially at peak times. We still hope...

Nice buffet breakfast with lots of options including hot eggs made to order, compact but clean and well designed rooms, excellent location within 5 to 10 minute walk of town center, lots of nearby restaurants, and friendly staff, all for a reasonable price. What is not to like?

The hotel is modern and beautiful. The breakfast has a bountiful selection of pastries, cereals, breads, spreads, meats, cheeses and fresh to order eggs and other hot options. The 24/7 free coffee is almost as good as the amazing and palatial cafe central. Great location that is just down the street from St. Stephen's cathedral and a few hundred feet...

For the first time when visiting Vienna we decided to book hotel Capricorn, mostly because of the reviews. We loved it. The staff was great, we loved the room, the breakfast and the afternoon tea. The only problem was the noise. The hotel is situated on a very busy road and it can be very disturbing.

Dear Anicel1, We are glad to read that you have chosen our Hotel based on the reviews of TripAdvisor and are happy that you were very satisfied and „loved“ your stay. Despite offering soundproof windows, the rooms can become a bit noisy due to the very central position of the Hotel Capricorno. We still hope you spend some restful nights...

Staying in Inner City

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
