Visiting Philippines in the heat of the summer I thought was unbearable but checking in to this hotel made the difference. Not only the room was great especially the bed and the bathroom which I tend to compare here in USA. I would highly recommend it to friends and family. Great management, very friendly staff and so as the accessibility...

The kids loved the swimming pool and doesn't even want to go home. No regrets in choosing this hotel over tons of resorts or swimming clubs near our place. The experience we had here is worth the agony we had for travelling since we're from the east. Rooms we're well cleaned and they have provided what we actually need since...

Facadè is a busy street and a crowded area. Lobby is very spacious, clean, well-lit. Pool is clean but it needs some safety handrails along the edges. Lifts are quite small but there are two units for use. Corridors are like garden mazes and are a bit low and narrow. The room we had was clean. Twin beds Room 333....

Pluses:Very quiet, direct access to LRT, jeepney to Intramuros right at the side exit. Doorman was extremely helpful to me in arranging a side trip to visit a friend. Generous breakfast buffet. Minuses: Like everywhere in the Philippines, lousy Internet. You may or may not like the lounge singer in the lobby in the evening.

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
