While on a break from some work in Oberammergau, Germany my wife and I stayed at the Opera Hotel. Our experience was simply pretty good. Over all we enjoyed our stay. The hotel has a very nice ambiance and is in good repair. Our room was rather large and was clear. The bathroom was large and clear as well. As... More

We chose this hotel because it had great reviews in Trip Advisor and the reviews were all correct. This hotel is centrally located near the old part of town, the Opera house, the Lake, and an easy Tram ride to the Banhoffstrasse for shopping, and the train station. We also chose this hotel because we had tickets for the Opera.... More

I have stayed at the Ambassador many times and now at the Opera, it's sister hotel. Both offer a good level of comfort for business visitors, and the location could not be better, right opposite the Opera House, next to the lakeside & a few minutes from Bellevue & Bahnhof Stadlehofen (with direct trains to the airport). Single rooms are... More

Our last visit to this hotel was almost 10 years ago. Our only concern at that time had been the smaller room at 22sqm. This time there had been a few renovations and we knew to book a larger room- 24sqm. I was happy with the size of this room, although there are also 28sqm rooms available. Our room was... More

I stayed here a few years ago and was slightly underwhelmed but this time they did better. I got an on line package with a superior room and breakfast included for a very competitive price.

Hotel Opera sounds very high end, but in fact the room is equiped with quite old furniture, the air condition control is really prehistoric and bathroom so so.. The reception was very nic, proffessional and helpful. Breakfast menu was absolutely great, with wide selection of swiss cheese, fruits, bircher muesli... I order coffee latte and it was perfect.

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.
