I stayed one night in Hotel Opera because I wanted to see the opera La Traviata with Pavol Breslik. I was told at check-in that my (single) room had been upgraded. It was a wonderful room! Large, comfy bed, great bathroom with lots of nice small bottles and stuff. An umbrella to use in case it would rain! (how cool...

This is a pleasant location. Location is everything and this property is located just next to the lake, opera house, and train station. The room is spartan. but having windows on both sides of the room added much more natural light than I was used to in a hotel. The carpet in the room was threadbare and offered no padding....

I had a short stay at this hotel and was allocated a nice big room on the top floor. I loved the quaint little lift and the intimate dining area. The breakfast was good enough and the location is ideal. I was even able to take a walk from the Bahnhofstrasse to the hotel (admittedly a longish walk). The receptionists...

Stayed here recently for a few days recently, room was on the small side but comfortable, wifi was good, staff were nice and in a central location, thought the buffet breakfast was a little disappointing, more variety would be nice

Was staying for one week there during a recent business trip. The staff were extreme helpful, both at the reception and the cafe. Room was clean. We just had daily breakfast at the hotel and found the food selection to be fair. Location of the hotel was good because it was located near the lake.

Just one night.... At the hotel Opera in Zurich. Arrived at around 7pm, reception was quiet so checked in quickly. Dropped my bags in my room, tried to connect to the Internet but couldn't, so had to go down to reception and they did the necessary to link my hotel room and surname. My room was beside the lift.

The Opera Hotel became my new home in Zurich. Very central but quiet, very nicely decorated and warm atmosphere. Lobby felt like my own living room, however with better service. As always it was a great experience and the rooms facing south make the big difference.
