- What's Included
We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Opera last November. The location was perfect. It was in a quiet part of the city but close enough to walk to restaurants, shopping and the main train station. With everything on the doorstep, we didn’t need to take transit.We have stayed in some hotels in Europe where our room was so small we barely had room to open our suitcases so we were pleasantly surprised by how spacious our room was. We had a queen size bed as well as a little table and two chairs. No sitting on the bed to watch TV. The bathroom was a bit small but well designed. It was nice to have plenty of counter space around the sink and even a shelf behind the toilet to store our toiletry bags. The only negative point about the room was the pillows. They were down filled and as soon as you put your head on them all the down shifted to the sides. Even folding them in half didn't help. I see from other reviews that we could have asked for different pillows and/or a lighter comforter but we never thought to ask.The service from the front desk staff was excellent. They were very helpful and friendly. We were lucky to have breakfast included with our stay. The selection of items (hot and cold) was good. I particularly enjoyed the selection of different cheeses from around Switzerland. My husband loved the different breads. The servers at breakfast were friendly and very patient with this jet lagged duo. Our favourite part of the hotel was the sitting room off the lobby. Along with a Nespresso coffee machine there was a very good selection of teas available . We would come back to the hotel after dinner and settle in a comfy chair with a cup of tea to discuss the next day’s activities. We were very fortunate that our four night stay at this hotel was included as part of a trip to Switzerland prize package. It is rare for us to stay in such an expensive hotel so this was a special treat. If we come back to Zürich in the future we will definitely try to stay here again.
Very convenient location close to public transportation hub. Nice area to walk around by the water if you have some free time. Plenty of restaurants close by. Room was among the tiniest that I've stayed in, but was very clean and comfortable. Good wifi quality. Desk chair was not very comfortable. In-room safe and ironing board.
The minute we arrived our room was not ready we had to wait 3 hours. We where sent out to get a coffee but even that we got there later was still not ready. The room was overall clean and we were offered two bottles of water that the one was already used ! I tried to open the tv but nothing happened so I had to call someone to fix it ! We had to spend half of our day setting things straight for them !! Unexpectable ! One of the nights we were wake up with a knocking on the door and the phone was ringing ( all these were happening after midnight !! ) I opened the door and it was a gentleman who asked me if I am ok and was holding a pillow that we had never ordered . We were both asleep !!!! How am I supposed to be ok while you wake me up !!!!! Zurich is beautiful and this hotel does not meet the standards at all !!!
Small and cosy hotel, near the opera and the old town. Reception staff very friendly. Room mid-size. Furniture a bit old fashioned but ok. All public transport nearby. Perfect place to discover Zurich.
If location is important to you then this place will be great. Close to the Opera. Close to a rail station that is one stop from Zurich central and three stops (20 mins from the airport). This was my third stay here. The rooms are very, very small but this is Zurich so you need to be ready for that. The room, while small, was comfortable and the bathroom was good. The hotel is affiliated with the restaurant across the road - fantastic schnitzel and rosti! Worth trying. Very good breakfast as well.
