Hotel Ópera

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel Opera is an old hotel that has been renovated. The rooms are small but clean, modern and comfortable. The hotel is located in a fairly quiet area but is not well sound proof and you might hear the recycling/carbage trucks at night which is probably the case in many hotels in Madrid. Nevertheless, I thought the location was great with easy walking access to most attractions or 2 minutes walk to the Opera subway if you want to save time to go anywhere. I very pleased with my stay!

We choses this hotel because of its location, which is excellent, very close to the under ground system and perfect for all the tourist sights, the Palace, Opera, Cathedral etc, as well as being perfect for shopping and restaurants. The hotel itself is pretty average, our room was a wee bit tired and could benefit with a refit, and was pretty noisy as the windows weren’t great, but saying that it was clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the breakfast staff worked very hard to keep on top of things but they could have done with more staff, the breakfast itself was fine with a good selection. All in all we enjoyed our break and would consider returning in the future.

The hotel's location is great. It is near a few major attractions (Palace, Opera), good restaurants, and the metro. However, my room was just awful. First, the temperature could not be properly regulated. It would either be uncomfortably hot or very chilly. Second, the room was very dark. It had relatively few lights. Further, in a number of the existing lights, the bulbs were out. Finally, the shower leaked terribly. After bathing, a large segment of the bathroom floor would be wet.

I stayed here in business for two nights and enjoyed my stay very much. Room was beautiful ans spacious enough and the wi-fi was fast, so I could work easily in my room. The breakfast was very good and with a lot of variety, also for someone like me who cannot eat gluten. My departure was very early but the staff was so nice that I could go to have a breakfast little bit before they officially opened the breakfast room, not to miss my breakfast. All and all the staff was very friendly and helpful. I also had a lunch at the hotel and that was nice and very good price for the quality. The location is central but the hotel itself is peaceful. I would definitely go again.

Such a good location for Madrid, really nice views and the room was very confortable! I particularly enjoyed the Jacuzzi in the room and the Sauna with a view! Good breakfast too and pleasant staff. Luis Miguel ( front desk manager ) we will come back for sure! You made everything for us to have a good time there :)

I don't think you can beat the location of this hotel. Which ultimately should be why you're picking it. We stayed there on two separate occasions during the same trip. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet (which was included in our rate) was very good. My only issues were with the room layout and the noise. Our first room was very small but had two standard sized beds pushed together. A single king would have made the room less cramped. Our second room was much larger but had two king beds(!) pushed together and a giant chair that didn't make much sense given there was also a couch and a desk with it's own chair. Because it's near opera plaza and the Spanish stay up very late, be sure to bring some earplugs. It's certainly not the hotel's fault it's loud but it is a bit of an issue. That said, I would stay here again.

I'm very pleased with my stay. I had originally booked a single room with Expedia and when I arrived I was happily upgraded to a double room. The rooms here are extremely clean and have all the basic amenities. Beds are comfortable. The rooftop gym is really neat and worth checking out just for the view alone. Hotel is perfectly situated to most streets and sights in Madrid (~ 15 min to prado, ~ 5 min to plaza mayor ~2 min to royal palace). Everything during my stay was just perfect. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because the elevator can become quite noisy at night/early morning. This may just be related to the positioning of my room though.

Nice comfortable bed and pillows! We also enjoyed our dinner and entertainment at the Opera, hotel's restaurant. The staff was very friendly and helpful, they gave us very good advise and recommandations.

When we arrived at the Hotel Opera, it was in the middle of the night and I was disoriented and confused. It was a relief to find that the hotel was open, the staff was welcoming and very friendly, and our room was still available. The room was small but modern and clean. The ventilation in the room very good and the temperature control was perfect - while these seems like minor details, it can make a difference in having a good sleep or not. Breakfast was included with the room, and featured a great selection of Spanish food. The location is outstanding - central yet one street away from all the excitement.

Kind staff, available Good location in the center Average breakfast, various choices, but missing hot meals and salads, noisy people in the morning Comfortable room and very nice bathroom, quiet Good quality of bath set supply
