Opera Hotel has a quaint boutique style with understated elegance. First, special thanks to staff who are very helpful and informative. We got upgraded to a premium room, which is quite spacious.

From Check-in to departure, a real pleasure. Attentive staff, small gifts like chocolate pralinees and a voucher for a glas of Champagne, clean rooms, international TV channels, and a sophisticated breakfast. I was surprised, that my company lists this hotel. If I have the chance, I will definitely come back.
