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.

The Opera Hotel became my new home in Zurich. Very central but quiet, very nicely decorated and warm atmosphere. Lobby felt like my own living room, however with better service. As always it was a great experience and the rooms facing south make the big difference.
