I loved the huge basket of satsumas in the lobby. It was always full regardless of how many I ate. 😀 The staff were always helpful and available. The duvet and pillow (only one) were down and very cozy. I would stay at the opera hotel again.

i've just visited - yet again - and brought a colleague. It was my recommendation - a small room and an otherwise perfect hotel, or go for the big brand hotel. She's well travelled but i think it was a good decision. She said she would come again, the breakfast was good, the chandelier in the lounge was cool, the...

This hotel is located next to a few very good restaurants and is in the heart of the city center..lots of taxis outside as well. Agree with other posts that the rooms are a little on the small side, but are completely sufficient and not lacking in everything. Staff very helpful, recommend.

Hotel has all you need for a short business trip although the bed was single which I found quite strange but the hotel is in a great location for a short walk to nice restaraunts and bars in the evening. Choices for breakfast are good too

The hotel is located close to old city area and just across the street to the lake. Very convenient location. Room is not so big, but you have everything you need. Amenities are good and plenty. The building is a bit old, but that is also a good feature of this hotel. It is walking distance from the station (not...

This is a nice hotel in a quiet area, but the room and it's contents was not up to four star standard: - Layout of the room is awkward, and there is nowhere comfortable to sit and watch TV, not even on the bed as it is at an angle to the TV - Bed is really small, and is...

The Opera Hotel is a well kept hotel close to the lake, museums, and the historic Opera House. It's within walking distance of the train station which is really convenient as you can take the train from the airport and avoid the cab fare. The room was a standard European size but it did have a workable desk! The view...

Expensive. Room too small for the price. Close to the Opera house, convenient if you are for that. Clean, comfortable bed, despite it was too small. Besides that, a standard hotel in a very expensive city.
