From Vienna Airport (Wien Schwechat)
Public Transport: About every 25-30 minutes there's a connection by bus, Schnellbahn S 7 (suburban train), or the CAT (City Airport Train) to train station Wien Mitte/Landstraße. Prices are between € 6,- und € 9,- per person for the transfer, which takes between 16 (with CAT) and 30 minutes.
At Wien Mitte/Landstraße there's a direct connection with underground line U4 (direction: Hütteldorf): two stops to Karlsplatz station, or three to Kettenbrückengasse. The price of a regular one-way Vienna underground ticket is € 1.70 - 2.20 per person. Getting off at station U4 Kettenbrückengasse, after walking approx. 300 m along the Naschmarkt market downtown, to the right Schikanedergasse is intersecting (there's even a sign at the corner saying “Carlton Opera Hotel”). Following the Schikanedergasse 200 m takes one directly to the hotel. Walking time from the underground station is 5 min, to get there from the airport takes approx. 1 hour.
It may be more economical to get a pick-up from the airport, which we can organize for you. The trip by taxi directly to the hotel will take about 30 min. The cost will be € 39,- for up to 3-4 persons with little baggage. A pick-up by station-wagon (if you have more luggage), or by mini-bus for up to 8 persons is € 42 - 62.-
