Das Capri wird zum Stadthotel Henriette in Wien


Awards & Certifications

What are we proud of? Well, that’s a rather difficult question to answer, since we just do what we love and get to call it work. But we do feel simply thrilled when we are acknowledged for our dedication and commitment! Our distinguished history began more than 15 years ago, and achievement after achievement has been added over the years. Here’s a look at some of the awards and accolades that have made us especially happy!

As a “eco hotel” that has carried the Austrian Ecolabel for 15 years and exceeded minimum requirements by a whopping 240 per cent, we think it’s worth taking a look at what goes into all that.

By the way: until 2021, Hotel Henriette was known as Das Capri.

Distinctions & achievements

EU Ecolabel
Since 2015, Hotel Henriette has been one of just seven eco friendly hotels in Vienna certified with the EU Ecolabel.

Only hotels that meet very strict criteria have the honour of bearing the Ecolabel. The EU Ecolabel takes into account the life cycle of a product or service. The effects on the environment during its use, production and disposal are considered. We successfully faced the catalogue of criteria for the first time in 2014, and went through the process again in 2019.

Austrian Ecolabel
Hotel Henriette has held the well-known Austrian Ecolabel since 2005. 

Criteria for this Ecolabel include all environment-relevant aspects: from waste management and energy-saving measures through to sustainable food and environmentally friendly travel. We have set strict standards for ourselves and made environmental friendliness and sustainability part of our eco hotel’s corporate policy.

Economy for the Common Good
In 2018, we were the first hotel in Vienna to prepare an Economy for the Common Good balance sheet, all according to strict criteria regarding human dignity, solidarity, ecological sustainability and social justice.

Our goal: the good life for everyone! Even the initial Economy for the Common Good evaluation was exciting – right from the start, we achieved 398 out of a possible 1,000 points. “That means we exceed the legal requirements by a whopping 39.8 per cent,” something the Pastuszyn family and our entire eco friendly hotel staff is very proud of.

Environmental Award of the City of Vienna

It was such a joy to be awarded Vienna’s 2019 Environmental Award for our commitment to the environment, sustainability and our decision to be the first eco friendly hotel in Vienna to work according to the criteria of the Economy for the Common Good.

The jury stated: “This family-run hotel has devoted itself to sustainable business practices, paying particular attention to social aspects in dealing with employees, and to social responsibility. This allowed the hotel to reposition itself and increase the level of comfort for guests.”

2019’s sustainable designers

BUSINESSART business magazine named Verena Brandtner-Pastuszyn and Georg Pastuszyn “2019’s sustainable designers” in the “Sustainable for Generations” category.

Every year, and in keeping with the motto “brave, mindful, effective”, a jury of 50 experts honours entrepreneurs and managers who set sustainable milestones in their field. The award was presented for the 10th time in 2019.

Vienna “top training company” quality seal

In November 2019, Hotel Henriette was named a TOP company for apprenticeship training. We are so proud that our efforts and achievements in apprenticeship training are also being externally acknowledged.

This award is a confirmation of the great work our “rising stars” and their trainers perform. The seal of quality is awarded by the Vienna Chamber of Commerce, the Vienna Industrial Association, the Federation of Trade Unions and the Vienna Chamber of Labour to outstanding companies that offer job training.
