Loved my stay! But beware of the additional $100 refundable deposit. Be sure to budget for it. Found parking in front of the hotel each night, bit difficult to find during the day. The rooms look exactly like the website photos. We will diffidently be back, we had a beautiful stay!

This is a cute boutique hotel surrounded by retail stores, restaurants, and bodegas. It is a nice and affordable hotel near the 2 express train for quick access to the city (Manhattan). We blocked off several rooms for our wedding guests who were from out of town- they all loved it and overall felt safe. Staff is helpful, friendly, and went the extra mile for our odd ball requests. Rooms are very big in comparison to other hotels in the city. Breakfast is fine and will get you through the morning. If you are visiting New York City-this is the place to be!

Room Tip: If you are looking for a late night bite (after 12am) nearby there is a Deli with a nice variety of...

A block from the subway station this hotel is a DIAMOND in the rough, for sure! The hotel staff was extremely accommodating and met our every need. The rooms were very clean and spacious for NYC. The breakfast was minimal, but totally acceptable and tasty (hard boiled eggs, cereals, breakfast pastries and breads, yogurt). Plus you have access to the gym directly next door! Like other reviewers, the area surrounding the hotel seems a little sketchy (for example, I walked to the McDonalds one block away for an ice-cream sundae and it's window service only....), but I never felt unsafe. The best part is that the subway line near the hotel has a direct train into Time Square - super easy! If you're comfortable using the subway, stay here for sure. Loved it!

We had to go to a birthday party in Manhattan. However, we didn't want to pay Manhattan prices! The Opera House Hotel is charming and elegant. Who would have guessed that this little gem is right in the Bronx, surrounded by clothing stores and little restaurants? Husband thought I was insane to book here, but was pleasantly surprised, Very comfortable and quiet rooms with lots of framed prints from the Opera Houses's golden days.Breakfast is continental style and you will find lots of young hipsters there with you. Breakfast is ok-bagels, crereal and fruit. But it's included in your room price and was more than sufficient for us. There are only a couple (read:3) parking spaces associated with the hotel. So, you'll probably have to park in the lot down the street. Parking price was reasonable and attendants were helpful. Parking lot was not scary! Take a chance here. We loved it.

We stayed a week in June, to catch a few evening Yankees games and absolutely loved it! From Duke, checking us in and Andrew checking us out, we have nothing but wonderful things to say. Breakfast was good, the Housekeeping staff was always smiling and happy. Rooms were clean as was the rest of the hotel. Area wasn't too bad either. Subways were a block away and no one bothered you. We will be back!

Needed to book a quick midweek stay. This place was clean, quiet and safe. Fresh fruit and yogurt on mid floor made this small place welcoming and cozy. Clean and modern. Parking on site is extremely limited.

We stayed 2 nights in the Opera House Hotel. Finding a parking slot for our rental car was not a problem at all since only few hotel guests seemed to had rental cars. The parking lot is gated and absolutely secure. The hotel is brandnew, very nicely decorated and the rooms are well equipped. Everything was really clean and nice. Hotel staff was very friendly and entertaining. Breakfast was good (basic, no continental breakfast), even though the breakfast room was freezing cold. No idea why they kept that room so cold. Better grab a sweater when you go to breakfast ;) Free hot drinks 24 hours where an extra plus. The only minus is probably the area. But it's not as rough as people probably think it is. Shops close in the evening and there is not much going on on the street except of some traffic (which you will have everyhwere in the city). Absolute Recommendation!
