Vienna taxi from train station to Hotel Topazz

Hi,

We are arriving in Vienna train station at 18.45 on the ICE train from Cologne.

We would normally catch a shuttle but this time prefer a taxi to the Hotel Topazz, I've been quoted 46 euros by the hotel and 32 euros by a local taxi firm. I'm hoping someone can recommend a reliable taxi firm for the short trip to the Hotel (unless 32 euros is good value) and also from the Hotel To the airport.. any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks.

32 EUR is expensive and rather appears to be a "limousine service". The maximum taxi fare between Hauptbahnhof Station and Hotel Topazz should not exceed 15-20 EUR. Latter one might be possible if traffic is particularly slow.

If you can handle your bags on public transport, then you could alternatively take subway line U1 to Stephanslatz, use the exit to 'Stephansplatz', and walk from there to the hotel, takes maybe 5 minutes once you are back on the surface.
