The hotel I wanted was booked on the day I wanted, and the next hotel nearest to it was this. I was a little hesitant because of the price, but I booked it for the location anyway. Pros: 1. Very professional. From the bellboy, to the security guard, to the receptionist, to the room service, I was impressed at the... More

My husband booked an overnight stay in the hotel for a business engagement in chinatown. It seemed that the Grand Opera Hotel is the only noteworthy hotel in the area. Our reservation for a premium room was made online. The hotel parking was packed. We had to valet our car. Check in was quick. The premium room boasted of the... More

Curious as to what they have done to the former grand old lady of vaudeville, I chose to stay here for 19 nights from 28 Jan to 28 Feb 2014 in between my tours of the Philippines to find out what the fuss is all about. In the lobby and the public places, I was disappointed to see only enlarged... More

The place is easily accessible by car or by LRT. The hotel is well kept and classy. We've tried a handful of rooms and we're always satisfied. One negative, though, is it ages fast. Replacement of some bathroom fixtures would be better. The buffet bfast is always satisfying.

Booking online was fast and easy. We were early so we decided to leave our bags at the hotel lobby while we do our Divisoria shopping. The hotel staff were kind enough to take our bags and gave us a claim card. We finally checked in at 3pm and it was a great room. The door was key card accessed... More

We went here to celebrate the birthday of our little girl since she asked us to stay in a hotel. We got a room with a window (no view, but quite wide). The room is clean and smells good. Wifi connection is good. They have shuttle services to certain malls but we were not able to try it (maybe next... More

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
