My brother and I stayed here on our first day/night in Switzerland. Since our flight from the USA arrived in the early morning, and we were jet-lagged we were eager to check in early to the hotel. Fortunately, Opera Hotel was gracious to get our room ready as soon as possible. We went to breakfast/lunch at a local cafe and... More

Very nice hotel and excellent location. Room worked well for business travel with desk and wifi. Staff was courteous and helpful. I had pre-arranged early check-in, but my room was not ready. The staff asked for an hour and brought me a coffee while I waited. I lost track of time while working and checked back with the desk after... More

Stayed at the Opera Hotel at the end of a trip to Switzerland. Hotel, while lovely in almost all ways, was unfortunately almost unbearably hot due to a heat wave in Zurich. Temps were reaching 95 degrees Fahrenheit and the hotel couldn't adequately keep the rooms cool, even with settings set to lowest temp and highest fan level. We were... More

Friendly staff, perfect location next to lake activities. Clean, and very close to train station, tram and buses. The elevator is small and slow, and the rooms are little on the pricy side. I enjoyed the A/C as the weather was extremely warm

My wife and I visited Zurich from June 11 to June 14, 2015. We stayed at the Hotel Opera, located nearby the magnificent Opera House, and we were highly satisfied. The hotel is in a wonderful location, close to a lake, clean and not as crowded as many other hotels in Zurich. Breakfast was excellent, great services and a very... More

This hotel is an exception in Zurich and in every respect a boutique. The beds are comfy, the room and bath room clean and up to date, the staff kind and caring. The room service expensive but perfect

Well positioned in Zurich the hotel is staffed with very friendly and helpful people. My room as a single and though tiny (by American standards) it was immaculate and comfortable. Walk around and see the Altschadt, shopping areas etc. No lack of good places to get a bite to eat and a free glass of champagne is offered at the... More

Started the work day exhausted after being put in this hotel on a business trip. The hotel's thin curtains do nothing to block out the light. A street lamp shone right into my room and if you do manage to sleep, you will wake with the sun. I ordered a wakeup call for 7.15 and received it at 6.15, a... More

Concerning the light intensity in your room: All our rooms are equipped with roller blinds in addition to the curtains to completely dim out the room for the morning hours. Regarding the room size: our Hotel disposes of different room categories with different... More

This hotel is located behind the opera house, in a prime location, just a few minutes walk from the tram and Stadelhofen train station and a block away from the magnificent Lake of Zurich. The staff are friendly, helpful and efficient. This is a sister hotel to the excellent Ambassador a l'Opera, located across the street. As a guest at... More

Nice comfortable rooms. Well equipped bathroom, with very good close up mirror. Had bean curry from room service and it was lovely! Friendly and efficient check in. Didn't have breakfast as always very expensive in Swiss hotels
