The Peninsula Hong Kong5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
A great hotel in all aspects, overwhelming architecture, beautiful lobby, wonderful service, high-tech but comfortable bedrooms. Highly recommendable, par excellence! The 28th floor, the bar, has excellent view of the harbor, tho I wonder why the blinds must always hinder the magnificent view????
After few times in HK, we decided to stay for the first time at this fantastic hotel. its location is excellent, the rooms are new, large and very "computerized". The staff is so helpful and polite, breakfast buffet is delicious, the pool is amazing. The only reject that i found there, was the fact that it is very very crowded with "outsiders". I think that the management must permit the enterance to the hotel's lobby, only for the hotel's guests. I think that it is the best 5 stars hotel in HK, that we stayed in (and we stayed in about 4 of them). Highly recommended.
I have had the pleasure of staying in the Hotel Peninsula chain around the world, all are an exceptional five star premises. My concern with the Peninsula Hong Kong is it maybe loosing all that it has become famous for. Most of its old colonial charm is being nudged out at the same rate as the updated deco is taking effect. As a resident of the hotel I found myself queuing for breakfast on a Sunday morning as tables were not available, and this was at 0830hrs! Like one other reviewer I was chastised for wearing open toed sandles whilst at the same time it was all right for our oriental friend to sit at a table and continually clear his throat and chest, something I am told is to be expected? Is that to be expected now the hotel is more affordable and we must now put up with this providing they are wearing shoes? It is a shame it is loosing the charm we all once experienced and enjoyed and I am sure that for every mediocre review there will be ten good ones together with an explanation from the management team why it is taking the current line and policy, however, it could be a slippery slope!
Number one hotel address in Hong Kong if you have seen the classic movies " Love is a many splendid thing " by William Holden and Ava Garner , also the Soldier of Fortune by Clark Gable , the hotel has been famous for almost a hundred years , it was taken as the headquarter for the Japanese invasion forces during WW2 in Hong Kong . But dont get me wrong if this is an old and run down hotel , in fact it has been remodeled and upgraded constantly and come with a heli pad for your jet set needs. The price of course is with its image and not for everyone . Its the best hotel in Hong Kong for business .
This hotel is just amazing and so good. They have airport pick up service and help us with our luggage. The room was great with a excellent view, and they checked us in, The receptionist explained everything so well. We got Chinese high tea when we arrived, so lovely. The breakfast buffet is very good and lot of choice. Also the room service was great. All of the staffs were very nice and kind.
This hotel is just amazing and so good. We got an airport pick up, from the gate somebody was there to help us with our luggage and we went to the hotel with a Rolls Royce! The room was great with a fabulous view, and they checked us in, in the room so our son could play in the room and don't need to wait at the desk. The receptionist explained everything so well. We got Chinese high tea when we arrived, so lovely. The breakfast buffet is very good and lot of choice. Also the room service us great. We loved the pool and especially my 15 months old son loved it so we went every day. The staff is very friendly and just so much service! This is a 10 star hotel👍😃.
Rooms and facilities are great... but the guy at the pool could be more tactful. There is a dress code that my partner was aware of but failed to tell me. Breakfast buffet on the balcony- the girl must have not noticed I was wearing flip flops when I went in, but when I sat down then informed me curtly of the dress code and advised me that whilst I was already there today, they would turn a blind eye to it, but requested I arrive tomorrow in more appropriate footwear. Whilst it is totally understandable given there is a dress code, the manner in which the message was conveyed to me made me feel extremely belittled- like I was not "good enough" to be at a snobby hotel like this. Given the amount we pay for a room here, I would not recommended this place for an Aussie on holiday. I have stayed at a number of luxury hotels... and this is the first one I am looking forward to checking out of tomorrow.
The Peninsula at Hong Kong is reputed to be as luxurious as it is old-established. The house Rolls-Royces parked at the entrance give you the flavour on arrival. The check-in was rather lengthy, considering that our reservations had been made well in advance, and we had no special requests. The room I was given was a disappointment: it smelled - badly: something like old, fried onions. When I complained, I was offered an air purifier, before suggesting a change of room. The second room was much better, but hardly sweet-smelling. I was surprised - to say the least. On the other hand, the service was unfailingly polite and efficient, and our dinner in the house Chinese restaurant was good. Would I return to the Pen? I doubt it - there are too many good hotels in HK from which to choose.
The Peninsula was probably the best experience of a hotel in my whole life as a consumer. Everything was great ! From the roomy space of the entrance of this hotel with their "own private limousines" to the concerts given in the afternoon or the quality of their rooms, everything was more than expected. Is there really much more to say ? I am not sure. Oh yes maybe the kindness and quality of service of the whole staff was up to its reputation. It is definitely the place to be !
The set dinner at The Peninsula Lobby Lounge is really worth for money. The steak was professionally cooked and tender. With the live music provided in the lobby make a traditional Victorian style atmosphere. That the reason why we need to queue for table in the lobby lounge. Recommend to visit for tourists and locals.
