We enjoy the place during our stay, spacious rooms, pool is good, amenities is quit good. The only issue i encountered is the parking there not enough parking during our stay and maybe more selection of food/bfast. Overall nice hotel and friendly staff not bad at all.

My husband and I decided to spend our honeymoon in this hotel. We told the staff that we're newly wedded couple and just want to stay overnight and take note, we DID NOT request for anything.

Booked because of its casino but our laziness never gave us a chance to visit it! Haha.. The staffs were very friendly and accomodating from the handsome driver who picked us at the airport, the macho security guards and porters, beautiful receptionists and the amazing k9.. Everything was almost perfect. Sir "Ceraz" -if my memory serves me right- the security... More

I stayed on the third floor which was supposed to be cigarette-free. However, the bathroom clearly smelled as if somebody before me tried to get away with a quick smoke inside the toilet. Why housekeeping didn't catch this, I'm not sure. When I checked out they made me wait as housekeeping inspected my room. But if I were to take... More

My daughter just got married recently, it was a Christian wedding so the ceremony & reception we're held there. We didn't expect much, just a simple wedding hall/reception at that, but we were really surprised!

Reserved for three nights at the "majestic" room for four guests. All four of us stayed in the same room. It cost about $90 a night including free breakfast. The room was big enough, it had a street view (not that great), but at least it had a window. The other rooms I've seen don't have any windows at all.... More

This is a nice hotel located in a very convenient place. The convenience store 7-11 is just cross the road. Chowking restaurant is not far either. The shuttle bus will take you to SM or Robinsons shopping mall if book advance.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Manila Grand Opera Hotel stands today on the former site of the Manila Grand Opera House, a cultural landmark that showcased Philippine arts from 1900 to the late 1950. Formally launched in August 2008, it combines the historic theater's cultural legacy with a boost to the travel and tourism industry as the only luxury hotel in Manila's Sta. Cruz district, near Binondo's Chinatown. Located on the corner of Rizal Avenue and Doroteo Jose Street, the Manila Grand Opera Hotel today caters to an increasing number of visitors from China and Taiwan, aside from habitues and residents of the area who have long hoped for such a center of elegance and beauty to emerge in their midst. At the hotel's entrance stands a historical marker about the inauguration of the first Philippine Assembly on Oct. 16, 1907 by United States Secretary of War William Howard Taft, a historic event that was held there. As the only elegant hotel in downtown Manila, Manila Grand Opera Hotel expects to cater to the increasing number of Chinese visitors from the mainland and Taiwan who will feel at home staying near Manila's Chinatown. The hotel also serves the needs of the Chinese community residing in the nearby Chinatown by providing accommodations for their relatives and friends coming from abroad, he added. The luxury hotel has 250 contemporary guest rooms equipped with state-of-the-art door lock system, cable TV and Wi-Fi and LAN access, a mini-bar with a wide variety of snacks and drinks, with amenities such as buffet breakfast, use of the Infinity swimming pool,and spa. For the dining enjoyment of guests, there are the New President Sharksfin Seafood Restaurant serving authentic Chinese cuisine and the Circa 1900 Bar and Restaurant offering an array of gastronomic delights in an old world ambiance created by the blown up photographs on the walls of artists who had performed at the old theater. For big social gatherings, the hotel's Ambassador's Hall can accommodate up to 1,000 guests while several Meeting Rooms are also available for smaller gatherings such as business meetings, social get-together, dining, meeting and banquets. ... more   less
