OPERA HOTEL, a name that will be music to your ears! Our private boutique hotel with a traditional atmosphere harmonizes perfectly with its classical surrounding. Located next to the famous Opera house, just a few steps away from the lake of Zürich, which is the perfect place for an early-morning jog, and the shopping mile „Bahnhofstrasse“, offering shopping at its very best. The airport and business centers are quickly and easily reached by public transportation.

We stayed 3 nights and we were very happy with the staff and the room. The buffet breakfast was excellent. The lobby was a very comfortable place to relax. We received excellent services from John in the kitchen, Sabrina and David at the reception and the night manager Nicola. The hotel is very close to the Lake and the Opera House and the train station Stadelhofen.

Excellent stay all around. Breakfast was delicious and we got upgraded twice (!), due to unavailability of the room we had booked (I suppose). However, be careful with the prices. We booked through the main website of the hotel, not booking.com. Our final total in the confirmation email indicated a significantly lower amount than what was asked of us at checkout. We were told that we can pay the lower rate, but that this was an exception. Also, the rooms aren’t really soundproof as advertised. We heard our neighbors talking and laughing. I understand that no hotel room will be ACTUALLY soundproof, but we could hear our neighbor’s conversation. Also, the noise in the street (cars honking) was not really filtered out.

We stayed for 2 weeks in the Opera Hotel in Zurich, Swiss, which is in front of the Opera house of the city in a beautiful location of the Bellevue neighborhood. Our room was very comfortable with all the facilities, and we had a balcony (like many other rooms in the hotel) with a view to the beautiful Zurich lake. Although it was January there were many sunny days and we could enjoy the scenery and even observe the white swans swimming in the lake! We felt like we are a part of the Swan lake ballet looking at the beautiful swans….But most important was the human resources in the hotel. From the cleaning personnel to the front-desk people they were all very attentive, happy to assist, ready to help even with the luggage and always happy to serve free mandarins, candy and cold tea. Specifically, we would like to give a five to Yoya, Julien, Marko and Patrick – thank you guys for showing us the great swiss hospitality!!!! We will come again!

Dear AnatRan1, Thank you for your wonderful review. We are delighted you had such an enjoyable stay at the Opera Hotel and were also blessed with some beautiful sunshine-filled winter days. As we are sure you discovered on your outings, we are very close to the impressive Lake Zurich, and within easy walking distance of the popular shopping street, the Bahnhofstrasse. We hope you enjoyed a meal at our restaurant, Opera, which was recently awarded 15 points in the Gault & Millau Guide for chef David Krüger's original interpretation of authentic modern cuisine. Our team — especially, Yoya, Julien, Marko, and Patrick — was especially pleased with your kind words of appreciation regarding our service. We take great pride in making sure our guests experience our genuine hospitality and friendliness. We look forward to seeing you again soon. Best regards, Michael Böhler, General Manager

Stayed in the Opera for two nights in a "Smart Room" which was very comfortable, albeit a little cramped for two people. The room would be ideal for one, but for two, things have to be negotiated when both of you are in the room. You came in from the hallway straight into the bathroom area from which you then step into a studio type area which has a double bed made from a “sofa type” arrangement. The bed was extremely comfortable and provides a good sleep. Everything in the room is controlled from a tablet on the wall (hence I assume the "smart"), with no instructions provided so you have to work the operation out. I would rather have had just simple traditional switches instead of gimmicks. They also provide a "google smart speaker" but it was not too smart as it never answered!! I pulled the thing out during the stay as it’s not a thing I would have in the room. The room was a little too warm for my preference and the "smart pad" had no means of cooling just apparent fan speeds. The room was comfortable and cosy, as with all Swiss hotels it was spotless. The staff were great and very approachable, the lobby / breakfast area is also tastefully appointed and comfortable to sit in and spend some time. Breakfast was excellent with many choices and produce of very good quality. As pointed out in other reviews the hotel is a block from the lake and within easy walking distance of trams/station and down town Zurich. A great location. Overall, I would stay here again when in Zurich, however, I would choose a larger room if travelling as a couple. If I was on my own, the “smart room” would also be fine.

Dear handyspanner, Thank you for your detailed review. It's very helpful for us and for our future guests who are just planning their trip to Zurich. We are pleased to know that overall you had a nice stay with us. The Smart room, although compact, is comfortable and well-equipped. As you described, it's outfitted with modern technology, for example, it has a Sonos bar and three different light settings. Various features of the room can be controlled via voice control with Google Home. We are sorry you didn't find the instruction, please contact our reception so that we can assist you. It's great you enjoyed our breakfast buffet served at THE LOBBY. We hope you also had a chance to visit our Restaurant Opera for lunch or dinner. If not, we can highly recommend it for the next time. Looking forward to your next stay with us. Kind regards, Michael Böhler, General Manager

Location fantastic: easy walk to Old Town, quick access to train & trams. Hotel room (#554) spectacular view of the lake, with a private balcony, yet quiet and comfortable. Excellent breakfast with helpful, pleasant English speaking staff. Wonderful bed with duvet and feather pillows. Everything I needed to maximize a short stay in Zurich for sightseeing. I also attended the Zurich Opera, only steps away from the hotel. As you will read in other reviews, the elevator is small, but that was no hindrance for me and I didn’t mind the occasions when I took the stairs as it was a good way to burn a few extra calories .... yes, the chocolate is exquisite!
