Stayed for two nights while attending a symposium: hosts paid, so I don't know what the room cost and can't say anything about value, but Zurich in general is VERY expensive. Very nice room, in terms of size (the reviewer who complained of "unbelievable small rooms" must have been stuck in a closet--we moved from a cheaper hotel that we...

Stayed two nights and found the rooms clean and comfortable. Layout of the rooms was a little unorthodox, but this did not detract. Staff were friendly and helpful, but not when it came to suggestions for eating out. They just intimated that we had to just go and find something for ourselves. However we did choose to eat in the...

There's a saying in german that goes: "Klein aber Fein" - small but good. That applies to Hotel Opera as it does to Zürich. As many other reviews pointed out, the rooms are rather small, as is the "business center' (one computer on the corner) and the breakfast room. But it's very cozy and well taken care of. The location...
