Having stayed at this hotel numerous times, I am always greeted warmly and personally. Every hotel staff knows me by name and takes the time to make me feel "at home". If there is any concern, it is immediately addressed. The spacious lounge is very tastefully decorated and comfortable. The location of the hotel makes it easy to reach anywhere... More

The hotel is right next to the Zürich Opera house and easily reachable by train and tram. It is quite centrally situated and a very short walk from the Zürichsee. The rooms are comfortable, and the staff was very helpful and friendly. The breakfast buffet provided a nice variety of breakfast options. Overall a very nice stay. I will definitely... More

Very reliable and pleasant - my usual place to stay (or its sister the Ambassador). Slight confusion at check in with a lost stay history and a request to provide all the details but quickly put right. The hotel is a little old fashioned but confortable. PLEASE do somehting about the pillows in the bedrooms.

I got this hotel from Hotwire. At close to 300 dollars per night, the hotel is very expensive. Overall, I felt that Switzerland is a very expensive place. The room rate did not include breakfast. The free Wifi was fast. I got a single room, which was very small. The bed was comfortable with a single pillow. There was desk... More

I loved the huge basket of satsumas in the lobby. It was always full regardless of how many I ate. 😀 The staff were always helpful and available. The duvet and pillow (only one) were down and very cozy. I would stay at the opera hotel again.

i've just visited - yet again - and brought a colleague. It was my recommendation - a small room and an otherwise perfect hotel, or go for the big brand hotel. She's well travelled but i think it was a good decision. She said she would come again, the breakfast was good, the chandelier in the lounge was cool, the... More

This hotel is located next to a few very good restaurants and is in the heart of the city center..lots of taxis outside as well. Agree with other posts that the rooms are a little on the small side, but are completely sufficient and not lacking in everything. Staff very helpful, recommend.

Hotel has all you need for a short business trip although the bed was single which I found quite strange but the hotel is in a great location for a short walk to nice restaraunts and bars in the evening. Choices for breakfast are good too
