Being a casino hotel and near LRT 1, the place is a bit chaotic and noisy. You can compare the rooms to that of motels in Manila, rustic and dirty. Maybe because the price is cheap, then the place is its equivalent. The hotel is only good if you need a place to stay for the night or transit, and...

Last week, me and my friends stayed in this hotel. I must admit, I didn't expect much from this hotel cause it's cheaper than the other hotels. But this hotel truly surprised me because of its classy swimming pool. Aside from the pool, I also enjoyed the cozy ambiance of our room which helped in relaxing our stressed minds. And...

Yung rate mura lang, very affordable. Maganda yung room, may pool and nakaka relax yung place. Kung nagpa-plano kayo mag unwind at lumayo pansamantala sa stress, ito ang sagot. Di ka pa mastress sa byahe kasi malapit lang. Mag eenjoy kayo dito.

I was not expecting the kind of service I received in my last stay with Manila Grand Opera Hotel. I'm not sure if it's because of the price that I got the room or it's simply that their service is just deteriorating. The front desk male officer is a bit grumpy. Then when i saw the towels that were provided,...

Not the best hotel I've seen for its price. The 8th floor may be one the the good space for seminars but not wide enough to accomodate 200 persons. The comfort rooms are also on the average.

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
