I visited Chemnitz due to an outdoor performance by the German band Revolverheld in late August. I booked Hotel and der Oper because it was across the street from the venue -- Theaterplatz -- and because it had good reviews on TA. I was very happy with my stay. I reserved a single room. The room itself was small but spotless. Furnishings, mattress, bedding, and bathroom were all fine. The small package of gummy Schlaf Schäfchen (sleep sheep) on the pillow in my room was a nice whimsical German touch. The view from my top-story room? Stunning. It alone was worth the price of the room and looked directly onto Theaterplatz. There were large windows that opened completely, offering an even better view and great appreciation of sound. I was able to watch (and hear) Revolverheld's sound check. How cool is that? I could have watched the concert from my room if I wanted to do so. Hotel staff were great. The breakfast buffet had good variety. Location is excellent. There are many restaurants and much to see within walking distance of the hotel. The train station is also a short walk from the hotel. I would like to come back and explore Chemnitz some more some day; I will almost certainly stay at Hotel an der Oper when I do that.…
We stayed here during a trip across Germany. The hotel is located near the center of Chemnitz, right behind the opera. The staff was friendly, the hotel room was big and well equipped. Everything was working.
We stayed here in early September - room 201 overlooking the square and corner. Our room was actually 2 rooms in one - the bathroom was separated from the bedroom by a small hallway Our room was air conditioned and the AC worked well. Our room had: tea/coffee making facilities Large TV - with international channels fridge phone but we did not have a safe. The bed was a king bed and extremely comfortable. We were lucky during our stay - on Saturday night there was a classical concert in the Opera Square opposite the hotel - which we thoroughly enjoyed. The staff were OK - helpful but nothing special. All in all - highly recommended - you will not be disappointed. A great place to stay
Europe was going through a heatwave and I was looking for a hotel with airconditioning and the only one I found on Trivago was Hotel an der Oper. I booked an apartment. I called the hotel to confirm it had airco and they confirmed. I arrived in my room and the airco did not work than I checked another 3 rooms and none of the airco worked. I was given a room on the top floor and had the pleasure of trying to sleep in 35C/94F temperatures. I slept 2 hours. Do not believe their stories. Breakfast was also not very grat and service handling my problem was very very poor.
I stayed for one night - it was a good place to stay. View directly towards the opera and street. However, very quiet. The location is close to the central station and good to reach by public transportation as well as by cab/car. Breakfast was a standard buffet type experience. Nothing special - all good. Thanks for the hospitality!
The rooms here a bit bigger then usual and they are neat & clean. The better part about this in comparison with the Hotel ChemnitzerHof is that there the clock tower sounds like somebody is banging your head. That's not the case with An Der Oper. Food was OK. City centre and railway station is walkable.
Chemnitz is not what you would call a beautiful city, it is therefore no surprise that all of the three hotels that we have stayed in there over the last five years are business orientated - this one even more so that the others - the Amber and the Artes. Situated bang in the centre, facing the Opera, this is a large, communist style concrete block of no architectural merit externally. Inside it has been given a total make over since that era, all to the good as far as the rooms are concerned, maybe less successful in the case of the publioc areas which have a somewhat sterile feel to them. Our room, a suite as it turned out, was good, if unacceptional, the bed was comfortable, but the air conditioning noisy and not terribly efficient. The en-suite shower room however was very well designed. This being a tower block - we were on the fifth floor - you are going to be spending an unreasonable amount of time hanging around for the single, very slow lift, which always gave the impression of being as far away as it could be when you needed it. Stairs are good for fitness and had i been here for longer my fitness level would certainly have been on the up! Breakfast was good, nowhere near the standard of the Amber, but better than the Artes - we were particularly taken by the artistic arrangement of the stacked plates at breakfast, the breakfast servers were very welcoming and obliging too. The dinner menu - decidedly French in style - we thought disappointingly restrictive and we ended up driving fifteen minutes to the Amber for our evening meal. Incidentally, if you are travelling in Germany using a Tesla, this is the hotel for you - there are no fewer than three charging points in prime position in the car park to the rear of the reception area.…
Chemnitz is a manufacturing city. All the 4 rings in Audi's logo became the Auto Union here in 1932. Planes, trains and automobiles all had and some still have their day in Chemnitz. This hotel is across the street from the opera house where there's always something on. During my most recent 3 night visit Wagner's Meistersaenger and the musical Flashdance were in town. It's standard fare and the city's main museum rich in expressionist collections is next to the opera. The city devotes a lot to the arts, always has. The hotel offers convenient and comfortable quarters with a well tuned restaurant complementing the best whisky bar in town. A sauna has been added to melt away the jet lag after landing in nearby Dresden. Leipzig is down the road. The hotel will make a good launching pad to explore the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Refoymsyion in 2017 in Saxony and neighboring Thuringia. Not too shabby for this transformed structure around the corner from the namesake Karl Marx statue. The city shared his name for 40 years until 1990.…
Coming from the uk you forget that it's been a tradition to smoke and drink after dinner. But in the Hotel an der Oper they are keeping the tradition alive without killing off the asthmatics like me. The have a wonderful glass partition keeping the smoke separate from the cocktail bar. The atmosphere is great and the rooms are clean with nice views of the city
We spent over there only one night. Location of hotel is very good, in the center of town, close to the square. Parking place is changed. Hotel's rooms are nice and clean. Breakfast was good, till 10. But half hour before 10 almost without fresh meal. Reception looks old, small space with strange smell.
