        • Older travelers
          9.2

          Got the room on 5th floor with big terrasse overlooking Opera and Lake

          Breakfast buffet - rather basic no great choices

        • Family with children
          7.0

          Location is great near the lake.

          Lift is too small to accommodate Even one person with his luggage.

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          Very close to everything, nice rooms and fair rates.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Excellent location; very comfortable room; very pleasant and helpful reception staff.

          The cost of breakfast! The 'express breakfast' cost Sw fr 8.50 - for which we were told off when we took a pat of butter and a small pot of jam - 'not included in the price'!! This did not send out a particularly welcoming message. The cost of the room itself should more than have covered the minimal cost of providing us with butter! A small indication, but telling, that this hotel was very strict on ensuring control over its costs - another example - a 'complimentary' bottle of mineral water was provided for our first night - but not thereafter.

        • Single
          9.2

          Very helpful, knowledgeable staff. a/c was great especially since it was hot in Zurich. Great location. Spacious room (I upgraded)

        • Single
          8.2

          Efficient service and nice rooms.

          Lacks personal warmth. Good for business travel.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Very friendly staff and very comfortable room with luxurious bedding.

        • Single
          8.8

          Nice and quiet, very clean, close to the Opera and Zurich see

        • Single
          7.0

          Very good staff and location

          There is no dark curtain, as a result, I was wake up by strong sunshine:(. Every afternoon around 5pm, the staff knocked my door even just asked 'is everything ok', this was really annoying me bcz it disturbed my rest:(.

        • Single
          8.8

          Hotel Opera seems traditional but has many up-to-the-minute surprises, and has friendly and helpful staff. It is well positioned close to the lake and not far from the main shopping area.

          On the day after Swiss National day, I chose a croissant & coffee breakfast. The croissant was cold, heavy and chewy, butter and jam were not included, and only one cup of coffee with insuffient milk. I felt this let the hotel down and poor value. After this I used the good breakfast buffet.

        • Family with children
          5.0

          The room a/c did not work and the room was too hot & stuffy to sleep in comfortably.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Renovation in house, some working noise.
