“Opera Suites - Very nice accommodation in a great location”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

We recently stayed at the Opera Suites on Karntner Strasse in Vienna and had a lovely stay. This hotel is very well situated with large, comfortable and affordable accommodations, making it a rather ideal place to stay for those wanting to be right in the centre of the city. We would happily return to the Opera Suites for another stay next time we are in Vienna.

Pros
Booking and Check-in: Reservations made through www.booking.com. Check-in was expedient and we were on our way up to our room in less than five minutes after having arrived. Staff were also friendly and attentive throughout our stay.

Location: Hotel was very well situated in the middle of the old town, just
across from the Sacher Hotel and cafe, within 1-2 minutes walk to the famous Vienna State Opera House. The Karlsplatz Metro Station is also just 3-4 minutes walk away from the Hotel.

Room: We found the room well decorated in Old World style. Furniture was nice and the room space was huge, with plenty of area for us to walk around and store clothing and bags. A water sink and tiny kitchenette space was also included, including coffee and tea facilities which were replenished daily and standard fridge and drinks/snacks. TV worked fine but mostly German channels only. Wifi was provided. It was slow in our bedroom but very fast in the lobby area.

Beds: Our room came with two single beds pushed together. Mattresses were very much to our liking - perfect in our opinion, just the right firmness/softness - and comfortable, providing excellent nights of sleep at the Opera Suites.

Bathroom: A spacious bathroom came with the room, it was well-stocked with toiletries as well, fixtures worked fine, shower pressure was nice, warm water throughout.

Cons:
Hotel Entrance somewhat obscured: As well located as the hotel is, it can be a bit difficult to see it, particularly if you are arriving at night. There is a ground floor entrance into the building, just next to a souvenir shop that is past the Starbucks. Just note it is directly across from the Sacher Cafe. Walk inside, use the small lift to go up or walk up the stairs.

Lift is too small: The building lift is very small, capable of holding 2 people only. If you have luggage, you'll need to go up one at a time or walk up the stairs to the second floor where the hotel lobby area is located.

Safe: was much smaller than we prefer, only providing enough room for paperwork, small digital cameras and iPad sized device. Regular camera bodies, laptops and similarly sized equipment don't fit within.

Wifi: Connection was often slow in our room. However, it worked well in the main lobby area.

Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay at the Opera Suites. The large room, space and very comfy beds made this a lovely room. Further, the location is right in the middle of the historic centre of Vienna, making it very convenient for sightseeing, dining or making way to a performance. In the end, we were very pleased with our stay here and wouldn't hesitate to return to Opera Suites in Vienna.

We celebrated New Year eve in Vienna, that's why we have chosen this hotel - location is GREAT!! You are in the center of Vienna! Hotel staff is really excellent - very helpful and nice.
Rooms are good but rather small - especially for american travelers. One minus - it was VERY NOISY - our windows were looking the main street and it was almost impossible to sleep - first it was musicians and they clean the streets at 4 AM,,,

Room Tip: Ask the rooms WITHOUT main street view

I stayed at this hotel on a family recommendation and was very happy with the decision. The location was fantastic, right by the opera and walkable to a bunch of sights. The hip on hop off also stops outside the opera so it's convenient to get further outside of downtown.

The staff was very friendly and helpful and the rooms were a good size. The rooms had a safe which was great and one beverage from the minibar is complimentary, including alcohol.

One word of caution, if you are a light sleeper request a room at the back. It didn't bother me but the hotel is on a busy street so you can hear street performers and drunk people on the way home from the bar.

One other thing to note is that the hotel is two flights up from the street. There is an elevator but it's tiny so we had to make multiple trips on the way in and out with bags.

Great value in a great location!

Though I read reviews, I don't often pick a hotel based on what others say about it. This case was no different. I chose the Opera Suites Hotel because of it's proximity to the Staatsoper in the heart of Vienna. As travellers, my husband and I usually prefer to spend our money on activities rather than our room, but we also love boutique hotels.
In this case, the hotel met both criteria. It was affordable - especially give that it faces the Sacher Hotel! - and it is definitely "boutique." Taking up the third & fourth floors of an office/apartment building on the Karntner Strasse, it is tiny, but luxurious. The bedding was to die for, the staff unobtrusively attentive, and the food wonderful. Everything worked as it should, the in-room goodies were all complimentary including the wine/spirits.
If I had anything not positive to say, it would be that typical of these types of hotels, the room was small, and the bathroom even tinier, but that isn't a complaint. It's just an observation. The room functioned as it should, was ample for our needs, and the fittings and accoutrements luxurious.
We will definitely stay there again. (We walked across the plaza to the Staatsoper on the night we attended. I wore my heels and a light wrap. It took two minutes.)

Room Tip: We had the end room on the reception floor (next to the kitchen) It was perfect. No street noise, no...

A quite delightful little apartment hotel just across the street from Staatsoper stage door and 2 minutes from Karlsplatz station and trams. My luggage didn't make my connection in Paris and had to be delivered to the hotel. Reception normally closes at 8 pm; but the lady offered to stay on until midnight on a Sunday evening to take delivery. Far beyond the call of duty and I had to fight to persuade her that I would be OK till next morning without the case. The place has a very restful old Viennese charm about it, but is right above a Starbucks and L'Occitane, and round the corner from some great cafes. Just lovely.

Warm hospitality, firm and cozy beds, beautiful large and comfortable room with kitchenette, beautiful breakfasts served in our room, modern bathroom with great shower, elevator, quiet room, like a studio apartment, spotless clean room with room service every day, quick responsiveness to any questions. Central location with most museums, churchs, opera houses, concert houses, restaurants and cafes, and other major sights within easy walking distance. Also close to much shopping including good food markets. On a bustling, pedestrian street. Also will arrange good, reliable transportation to and from the airport. We had a most enjoyable, wonderful stay, and would highly recommend!

Room Tip: The rooms in the back are extra quiet.
