Das Capri. Ihr Wiener Hotel
Ranked #14 of 359 Hotels in Vienna
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 June 2014

Back in 2011, we spent 7 days in this hotel and it was quite terrific. We chose the hotel on hotels.com due to reviews and pricing. We traveled to Vienna after a week in Prague. I was a bit skeptical when we first arrived in the middle of the night. The hotel does not make a grand external impression. However, once inside, the customer service of the staff and the rooms more than make up for that. As a bonus, my room was automatically upgraded (I did not even ask for this benefit) to a room on the top floor of the hotel. The room was very nicely laid out with modern decor and was well maintained. The bed was awesome. The rooms we had also had a terrace that you could walk out on to get some air. We also had the front desk book our day trips to Budapest and Salzburg. Both trips were fantastic and the company we used had us with a terrific group for each trip. Although the hotel is not down in the main square, you have the train within a 2 minute walk of the hotel and the main bus depot is a 7 minute walk up the street. You have sit down restaurants and fast food places in the immediate area. Right next door is a nice little lounge/bar where you can drink, order light dishes, and chat for a while. It's a cool place to hang out with friends and meet new people. My overall rating is a 3.5.

Room Tip: book a room with a terrace.

My husband and I just returned from a week in Vienna. The Hotel Capri helped to make it a wonderful trip! This hotel is not right in the city center, but is only about a 10 minute walk. Also, the subway is just outside the hotel and can take you anywhere you want to go. The hotel was very reasonably priced yet our room was one of the largest we have ever had in Europe. Cleanliness was exceptional, the bathroom was gleaming! The breakfast was great too. All of the staff were both friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend the Hotel Capri if you are looking for a moderately priced place to stay in Vienna. The only disappointing thing about our experience was their policy of charging 20 Euros for an early check-in. My husband and I have traveled a great deal in Europe and almost always arrive in the morning. This is the first time we have been charged to get into our room early. This is a small thing, but I thought I should share. Don't miss the city of Vienna, it is beautiful!

As other reviewers have mentioned the exterior of this hotel might turn you off but you are pleasantly surprised when you enter your room. We booked a superior room and it was very spacious with a nice balcony. However it does not matter how nice the room was - the lack of air conditioning spoiled our enjoyment. We had two fans in our room and it was still uncomfortable with 28-30 degree Celsius heat. We had to avoid returning to our room in the middle of the day. We had a very late flight and paid for an extra day and then couldn't use our room because it was too hot - ended up hanging out at a sidewalk cafe hoping for a breeze. We have stayed in many small 'boutique' type hotels in Europe - many in buildings hundreds of years older than this one and they had AC. It was my fault for not paying attention to this fact - but it is also this fact that would stop me from staying here again. It doesn't matter how nice the staff are or how much you enjoy the breakfast if you are uncomfortably hot all the time in the warm weather months. Possibly stay here from Nov to Mar but certainly not later than that - otherwise there are several smaller hotels in the same price bracket that do have AC - we were just too lazy to bother packing up and moving. Location was fine and close to the metro.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that does not overlook the Main Street. There is no view from any of the rooms.

Dear 541 plaid!
Thank you for taking time to write a review on our hotel. We were glad to read that you liked our spcious room with the balconies and the location of our hotel close to he metro.
Yes you are right, we do not have an AC at the moment. AC are still not state of the art in Austrian hotels. But WE WILL GET ONE after this summer. It will be a special solution with a heat pump (I hope this ist he right word in english for this new technical solution) – very ecofriendly and so fitting to us as an certified enviromental friendly hotel.
Soon we will start to make the warm summer enjoyable for our guests: With FREE ICE CREAM if the temperature on Stephansplatz is rising over 30 degree Celsius and FREE DRINKING WATER in the rooms.
So if you come to Vienna again next year you will enjoy our breakfast, our nice service and a cool room.
We hope to see you again ;-)
Best regards
Your Capri Team

Good prices, excellent staff and not to forget that the design is very unique here. The breakfast is very healthy, nicely decorated and always fresh. The wifi is absolutely the fastest I have ever experienced. Highly recommended.

...about the environment! Let's start with that first: At the sumptious, extensive breakfast buffet, the Capri serves free-range eggs and "fair-trade" tea (if you don't understand, look the latter up. Short story: Poor farmers in even poorer countries get a "fair" price for their hard work). While you make your way to the bright, sunny breakfast, pay attention to the photos featuring all of their employees in "civilian" clothes -- while highlighting some of the cities' best tourist sites. Oh, yeah, forgot: Our room was WONDERFUL! Huge -- had a small foyer with lots of closet space and a substantial bathroom on the right. Beyond the foyer door was a lovely, large living room with a desk, HD TV, queen-sized bed, and HUGE windows overlooking the street below. We stayed here for 4 days and, honestly? It felt like home.

This hotel is 25 meters from the nearest metro on the left, walking distance to the train station, and walking distance from the old city.
We had the superior room that was roomy with lots of storage space,very clean and comfortable!
The hotel staff were helpful and friendly- particularly the staff in the breakfast room. The girls made a special effort to provide soy milk and even offered to go out and buy it on the spot! Breakfast was good and we enjoyed our stay there. We would go back there in a minute!

Room Tip: The superior rooms are spacey with lots of storage space- worth the extra cost.

Great hotel overall: located close to the city centre but just off the bustle so more peaceful; front desk staff who really knew their stuff and helped enormously to make our stay enjoyable. Rooms were roomy and well equipped.

Room Tip: Ask for a room overlooking the street with a balcony
