The Peninsula Hong Kong

Hong Kong, Asia and Far East

The hotel

Once in a lifetime you stay somewhere truly exceptional. Where every detail’s polished to perfection – from the Tiffany tea plates to the fleet of Rolls Royces. That’s The Peninsula. Transporting you back to the glittering 1920s, Hong Kong’s oldest hotel still promises timeless traditions, from being welcomed by white-liveried ‘Peninsula Pages’ to taking afternoon tea in the lobby, where dainty finger sandwiches, pastries and scones are served to the delicate sounds of The Lobby Strings. They also transport you deep into local life, with The Peninsula Academy providing experiences from dim sum making to caviar courses, and from helicopter tours to pastry chef classes for children. And, after all the excitement, you can retreat to your luxury guest room, perhaps overlooking the harbour, in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui.

Sure The Peninsula Hong Kong is one of the MUST go Hotel in Hong Kong. It's a colonial-style luxury hotel with 90 years of history. The room is clean and nice, you can operation the electrical lights and air conditioner with just a touch on the pad.

Our first staycation in Hong Kong and I must say it was awesome. We opted for the harbour view room and the view did not disappoint. We also splurged on the rolls royce pick up.

Our first staycation in Hong Kong and I must say it was awesome. We opted for the harbour view room and the view did not disappoint. We also splurged on the rolls royce pick up. Staff were friendly and professional. The room was very spacious, bed very cozy, and I loved the huge bathtub with television. The bath amenities smelled amazing. The pool was beautiful and an excellent place to relax. Our package included a dinner at Felix, breakfast at the Lobby, a takeaway afternoon tea set and late check out. It was a great value for the price but my partner and I were both very underwhelmed by the food in general. Food presentation was great but overall out of the 4 meals we had during our stay (we also ate at the pool), we were left unsatisfied unfortunately. We eventually ordered deliveroo. Overall we enjoyed our staycation at the Peninsula and would even recommend it to our friends. I just wouldn't bother eating there again. It would be great if they could make some changes with this.

First and foremost I need to be clear that the room we stayed provided clean and top quality furniture and amenities, and all the staff we encountered provided excellent services. The issue which gave rise to the title of this review concerned the position of suite we stayed during the commencement of long weekend. In summary, think the old wing lower floor museum facing suites would be a deal for people instending to stay up through the night to enjoy the suite's facilities given it's attractive pricing, but maybe a bit risky for families with young children who habitually rest before midnight. And, as told by the staff during check out, one could request for room further away from other guests who might be hosting a "party" if tranquility is preferred. We got a suite at the lower floor in the old wing facing the museums for this second stay, instead of a suite at higher level in the newer tower which my wife and I stayed 2 years ago. One of the bedroom wall of this suite at the old wing happened to be directly opposite to the door of another guest room, so I suspect when the other guest room's door was sprung closed the sound would be clearly audible in our bedroom. This construction feature coupled with suspected "active" and "overly joyous" neighbouring guests seemed to mean real trouble when the door closing sound came from time to time just when we were about to call it a day and tried to enjoy a good night's sleep (started at around 11pm all the way through maybe 1am). What more was I heard teens laughing and maybe yelling as if there were playing catch along the corridor, with subsequent abrupt sounds of opening and closing of their room door two or three times in between. All these resulted in a sleepless night for me (lucky my wife managed to quickly doze off after she was awaken one or two times when the other room's door sprung closed so she didn't need to endure the whole "symphony"). When we decided to reserve a suite we assumed the space between the dining and sitting area and bedroom would serve to reduce unwanted sound from the corridor entering the bedroom. Suppose when the bedroom wall was directly opposite to the door of the other guest room and the guests were active through the night, it would have been better if we just made full use of the suite and party hard instead.

Luckily I don’t really know, as this was a surprise birthday present/covid deal. We stayed for 1 night. But what I can say is this is the best hotel I’ve ever stayed in. Is it my favourite? No, but that’s my preference. But its effortless elegance and quality of every aspect of the service, room and facilities mean it has got to go top. Here’s some random things I loved that perhaps aren’t commonly mentioned in other reviews: - The metallic-tubed shower hair and body stuff that needs to be pierced by the cap to be opened. - The his and hers opposite sinks. Opposite, not side by side. - The musical glug of the water down the shower plug hole as it echoes around the marble-walled shower room. - The TOTAL darkness (if you want it) of the room, even in morning light. - The quality, user-friendliness and “blend in” nature of the room electronics. - The pool is the best indoor pool I’ve been in. How they make it Romanesque but not tacky is really impressive. Top tip - On the sun deck, you might think you want a sun lounger, but you really want a sofa and chair to the left as you move out. And to show I was at least trying to find some faults, here’s 3, which I’m sure you’ll agree are ridiculously petty. - One of the 4 coconuts we ordered didn’t have perfectly ripe flesh. - The pre-heated scones in our take-away were a little crunchy. - The hairdryer wasn’t a Dyson (I am hooked on my fiancée’s).
