First, this is not a review of the Opera Suites Hotel, just their adjacent studio apartment. Check in is at the hotel which is around the corner from the apartment. The hotel lift was broken, a continual problem as other reviewers have mentioned the same issue in past reviews over the year. Only one person was working at the hotel upon checkin and she couldn't leave the desk so there was no available help with the luggage. Not fun in the rain!
We were 3 sisters travelling together and walking into the apartment was a disappointment. The flat was very basic with drab, worn furniture and a strange layout. Directly in front of you, as you walk in, is a tiny toilet room. The main bed was fine but the sofa bed was lumpy and soft. Again, the tub/shower room is very small. The bathtub has high sides with a slick finish so getting in and out without slipping is difficult. There's a wobbly plastic half wall attached to one side of the tub that offers no support. I wouldn't be surprised if it hasn't fallen off by now! In one way, it was good having a separate toilet room as you couldn't fit more than 1 person into either room at anytime.
On the plus side the Wifi worked well and if you are in need of a basic kitchenette the apartment does provide that. Since the Opera Suites is a hotel I assumed basic housekeeping would be provided in the studio but it was not. The location is fine and within easy walking distance to many of Vienna's tourist sites. At checkout, we asked to see a hotel room and were pleasantly surprised so if travelling as a couple or single you might consider giving the hotel a try. Would I stay in their studio apartment again? Definitely not!
