This is a nice hotel in a quiet area, but the room and it's contents was not up to four star standard: - Layout of the room is awkward, and there is nowhere comfortable to sit and watch TV, not even on the bed as it is at an angle to the TV - Bed is really small, and is... More

The Opera Hotel is a well kept hotel close to the lake, museums, and the historic Opera House. It's within walking distance of the train station which is really convenient as you can take the train from the airport and avoid the cab fare. The room was a standard European size but it did have a workable desk! The view... More

Expensive. Room too small for the price. Close to the Opera house, convenient if you are for that. Clean, comfortable bed, despite it was too small. Besides that, a standard hotel in a very expensive city.

This hotel is next to the Opera House & just a couple blocks from the lake. A short easy walk to old town and to train station for airport. Nice breakfast room and good buffet selection. Bed was comfortable but room was very small and bathroom microscopic. A big plus was that room had a balcony with a partial lake... More

Very centrally located near the Opera of course. Stayed here over 30 years ago and decided to stay just 2nights after after training back from Paris. Staff were extremely courteous. Breakfast was adequate. The room was a good size too. Only complaint was that the linen wasn't changed until we specifically asked for it to be done. Can recommend this... More
