Superb place in Manilla to stay in. Good service and nice food. We got a good deal from them for BB. So overall it was a really good experience. Would recommend the place without thinking twice to another person.

We had our Grad Ball last 2012 in this hotel, and I must say that they accommodate us well. Though we had little waiting time at the reception for the rooming list, it's understandable. For the room, we have that 2 queen size bed with proper arrangement and fits us well even we're total of 6 inside the room, as...

I stayed last November 18 during the holidays to have a staycation with my friends. We were surprised that our room was upgraded and the front office staff were very accommodating and helpful.

The area around does not look good and does not feel safe, although we didn't have any problems. The hotel itself is new, staff is friendly and helpful and it was a great stay for us. The room was good and really nothing to complain about. The breakfast was good, Nice Pool and Sauna, I would Definitely stay here again...

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
