We stayed here for a 3 nights last weekend, and we're not disappointed. Beautifully clean hotel, friendly helpful staff, and absolutely perfect location. Close to resteraunts, bars, swanky shops, minutes from the tram stop which takes you to every part of Zurich, and a few mins from the lake with its stunning views. The nearest train station is a 5...

I always stay at the Opera when I visit Zurich for business. The rooms are nice (although some are small), and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms have air conditioning, and the breakfast is good. The location is perfect - near the lake, train station, and restaurants.

I stayed at the Opera Hotel for a few nights on a business trip. Even though my room faced the street, it was quiet. I had a single room, which was small (as is typical for hotel rooms in Zurich, although there was plenty of storage space. In this room, the toilet and shower are separated from the rest of... More

I had a two night stay, but changed hotels in order to be closer to my work. I thought the food was a bit overpriced, but then again everything in Zurich seems a bit overpriced! It's quite central, and a bit noisy outside. Pleasant enough staff, room is clean and has everything you'd expect from a business hotel. No real... More

I stayed one night in Hotel Opera because I wanted to see the opera La Traviata with Pavol Breslik. I was told at check-in that my (single) room had been upgraded. It was a wonderful room! Large, comfy bed, great bathroom with lots of nice small bottles and stuff. An umbrella to use in case it would rain! (how cool... More

This is a pleasant location. Location is everything and this property is located just next to the lake, opera house, and train station. The room is spartan. but having windows on both sides of the room added much more natural light than I was used to in a hotel. The carpet in the room was threadbare and offered no padding.... More

I had a short stay at this hotel and was allocated a nice big room on the top floor. I loved the quaint little lift and the intimate dining area. The breakfast was good enough and the location is ideal. I was even able to take a walk from the Bahnhofstrasse to the hotel (admittedly a longish walk). The receptionists... More

Stayed here recently for a few days recently, room was on the small side but comfortable, wifi was good, staff were nice and in a central location, thought the buffet breakfast was a little disappointing, more variety would be nice

Was staying for one week there during a recent business trip. The staff were extreme helpful, both at the reception and the cafe. Room was clean. We just had daily breakfast at the hotel and found the food selection to be fair. Location of the hotel was good because it was located near the lake.
