The Peninsula Hong Kong

Hong Kong, China

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.

Stayed in Peninsula for the birthday stay, spacious room and appreciated the unique features for Peninsula ONLY - In-Room Entertainment System, Bathroom Amenities, etc. Hardwares are nice and you can control everything by using the special digital control pads next to the bed or the writing desk. For the service, not really impressed.

We went there for an afternoon tea on one Monday afternoon. The decor and atmosphere there is very classy and elegant. The service was really excellent. All waitors were so friendly and attentive. Whenever we had any requests, they responded very promptly. Our table was near another room that was under renovation. After we were sitting there for an hour, we smelled something from that room. They arranged another table for us right away and gave us another set of drinks free of charge. There was a group of musicians playing classical music in a balcany. The atmosphere was truely relaxed and brilliant. Read less

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights on a month long trip through China and Japan.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights on a month long trip through China and Japan. It has the best location, right next to the largest most high end shopping I have ever seen, across from the river and museums and ferry. Our room was large and very well appointed with a show stopping view of the river! It took my breath away when we arrived in the afternoon and again at night with all of the incredible lights on the buildings on the other side of the river. I think our receptionist, Anna at the Peninsula in Shanghai had communicated with Tony in Hong Kong and he arranged for the beautiful room for our anniversary. Jasmine, the concierge, also was very helpful in getting our boarding passes for us and even came running to us as we were leaving to help let the taxi driver know what airline we were flying! This is a fabulous hotel with obviously a great staff to guest ratio. Everywhere there is someone waiting to help you. It made for a wonderful memory in Hong King! Read less

We arrived at the Peninsula Hotel without a reservation but the staff could not have been more helpful. They called the restaurant and we were accommodated at a pleasant table but were warned that it was not best placed for the view. We still had a good view and were moved to an excellent position when other diners moved. You could not fault anything other than the cost of the food and drink hence the four star rating. The starters were small, albeit tasty, but at c.£58 for a steak you would expect some sides. They were separate and expensive as was the drink, so our two course meal and a drink cost just under £300 but you could forgive anything for that view! Read less

We were on a cruise that completed its journey here in HK and were picked up in the Peninsula Rolls Royce from the cruise terminal across town which was lovely. Check in very smooth and our room was ready which was great. This hotel is very luxurious and deserving of all of the plaudits it gets. However there are some reservations from me about this visit, the things that are currently closed which we were not informed about ( the American Bar, very disappointed not to use this bar, closed for renovation, the gym also closed for renovation , had to work out by the pool, not great even in the early morning sunshine, far too hot and the upstairs bar at the Felix which is one of the highlights for me - closed for renovation). The staff as always are first class, anticipating your needs and really excelling themselves. When we arrived we were given a card with info on it should be get trapped anywhere due to the protests - we didn’t need to use this as no protests on a week day, but very thoughtful. Also a special mention to the Concierge, my husband left his phone in a taxi and they managed to track it down for us and the cab driver (bless him, honest people are still out there folks!) returned it to the hotel. So grateful to the Pen staff for this. The rooms here are what you would expected from this level of hotel, luxurious linens, comfortable beds, tea and coffee machines in room, lots of gadgets to play with (to close curtains, etc.) and really lovely decor. Yes I would stay here again, but I wish we had been informed about the renovation. We did not try the afternoon tea as it’s not the sort of thing we do, but if you like it, then this is the only place in HK that you should consider doing it. Not cheap though. Read less
