I was on a business trip, and my wife joined me for the 3 nights we were there in late December. So this was part business part social.
I have stayed at the Opera about 5 times this year and have enjoyed every stay. The hotel is effectively a boutique hotel, although it does have a restaurant in it's partner hotel across the street.
What I like about this place, and why I bother ti write a review, is that the staff are so very friendly, so helpful, and make you feel so at home. Nothing is too much trouble for them, and the constant supply of tea in the lounge a great touch. It makes me smile to walk through the door knowing I will be staying there for a few days.
The rooms are not the biggest in the world, but are well equipped, the bathrooms are great, the beds comfortable, and despite being a city centre location, the rooms are very quiet due to excellent double glazing.
Wifi is not free, but a cable connection in the room is, and works well.
It is a few minutes, literally, walk from tram, train, lake, shops, bars, restaurants, and of course the opera house. No need for cabs at all, which are crazy prices in this city.
I like this place, and highly recommend it, but it is quiet, if you want a lively bar and night club, please look elsewhere. But it suits me.
