Manila Grand Opera Hotel is a disappointment on multiple fronts. While the staff's friendliness prevents it from receiving a zero-star rating, the overall state of the facilities, rooms, and services leaves much to be desired. I would strongly advise potential guests to explore alternative accommodations for a more satisfying and comfortable stay. The elevators in Manila Grand Opera Hotel are a source of frustration, taking an unnecessarily long time to accommodate guests. This inconvenience adds a layer of discomfort to an already unsatisfactory experience. The rooms are a major letdown, being cramped and poorly maintained. The windows are so small that they hardly deserve to be called windows, and the lack of natural light exacerbates the feeling of confinement. Additionally, the ceiling in my room was leaking an unknown substance, raising serious concerns about the overall hygiene. Basic amenities in the bathroom, such as the exhaust fan, were non-functional. This oversight affects the overall comfort and functionality of the room.

Breakfast buffet is great, clean rooms and and bedsheets. Location is near Binondo and Chinatown, good place to stay if you would like to go food triping on those areas.
