We really loved the spaciousness, price, and comfort at this hotel. You just cannot beat it anywhere else in New York City! Pros: 1. Free breakfast - croissants, muffins, bagels, toast, boiled eggs, cereal, yogurt, orange/apple juice, coffee, hot water for tea. 2. Free cookies at night - lemon, chocolate chip, and oatmeal. 3. 24/7 hot water (for tea and... More

Just recently restored to operate as a art-deco boutique hotel Great place to stay with family. Rooms are very modern, quiet and very very clean. Beds are like clouds. very good continental breakfast. Very close to all transportation to... More

I have stayed at the opera house over 5 times totalling over 30 nights. The Hotel, Room Size, and staff are amazing for this price. The location could definitely be better. Many locals and taxi drivers don't even know the hotel exists. The rooms are always very clean, modern, and sleek. The staff is always helpful. My only complaint is... More

That was my second stay in this hotel and one more time a good one. Hotel looks like new, room was clean and very spacious, You won't get so much space for this price anywhere in Manhattan. Staff is helpful and friendly. Breakfast area is quite big so no need to wait for free table. Coffee machine and hot water... More

The hotel is beautiful and charming; however, my 3rd floor the room was too noisy to afford a descent night's sleep. My room was situated was right under the generator on the roof. The ceiling whirred with a dull hum all night. I finally fell asleep close to 4:00 am, but my sleep was broken by the vibrating roof shortly... More

Very clean and tidy hotel. Comfortable beds and reasonably equipped rooms. If something is not in your room ask and it will normally materialise eg. hair dryer. Staff are friendly and efficient. The breakfast although continental in fashion provided good variety and plenty to set you up for the day Don't worry about the location within the Bronx. We found... More

Right in the middle of an eclectic, multi-cultural "real" neighborhood, The Opera House is an OUTSTANDING find!! The price per night is VERY reasonable for NY. Comes with complimentary, wonderfully stocked, continental breakfast. The staff provide EXEMPLARY customer service usually found at the highest-end properties. Don't pass up this over-night option. It's worth traveling outside the city a bit (one... More

The Opera House is a gem in the Bronx. The front desk staff was a pleasure to deal with after a long day of work. I enjoyed my stay very much. It is located right near the subway and only a short ride to manhattan.
