The Peninsula Hong Kong5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We stayed three nights at The Peninsular and from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave you feel that you are in a dream. Everything works like clockwork. The staff are fantastic and the facilities are second to none. We were collected by the green Rolls Royce from the airport, and you are whisked through the terminals from your arrival gate to a separate limousine lounge ...how special. I couldn't think of anything that we needed in the bedroom; simply everything had been thought of: multiple chargers in the bedside cabinet, an electrically operated vanity mirror in the dressing table and the most comfortable of beds. The spa is heavenly, even if you do share the sauna with some Chinese on the phones! And when I mentioned to my therapist that it was birthday, I found chocolates waiting for me on my return to the room. Breakfast is fantastic, even down to the lovely crispy bacon. What more could you need?
The Peninsula is the Grande Dame of Kowloon, but as venerable as she is, she still has a few tricks up her sleeve. Like the elaborate electrical system with touch controls everywhere. Like the push-button lighted make-up mirror that rises majestically out of a desk. Like conveniently-situated 110 electrical sockets and USB ports. Like profuse amenities. But the Peninsula's claim to fame is not just because of technology. It is in the smiling faces of staff members who rush to open a door, fetch a glass of orange juice from the breakfast buffet, assist an older couple to shortcut a long line a for a table for tea. These are the small courtesies that count and mean so much to travelers. In addition, the breakfast buffet mentioned above is a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach and offers western fare as well as Chinese, Japanese and other exotic cuisines. You will pay extra to stay at The Peninsula, but you will be pampered and cherished and you will find the experience is well worth the price.
Perfect location, beautiful rooms, traditional decor, faultless service, one of the best places to eat Chinese food (if you want something that is not on the menu ask and they will cook if for you), wonderful place to have afternoon tea. One of my favourite swimming pools in the world. You will pay accordingly but if you have the money it is worth it. You can ask for transport to and from the airport by one of their Rolls Royces or even a helicopter. Personally I recommend train to Hong Kong island then, provided you do not have much luggage take the Star ferry.
We returned to the Peninsula for a second-Honeymoon fifteen years after we stayed there as newlyweds, and we were not disappointed. Impeccable service, first-class amenities (that incredible swimming pool!) terrific food & beverage, and an overall atmosphere that is both elegant and welcoming left us wishing we had planned an even longer stay. Because our flight from New York was scheduled to arrive very early in Hong Kong - this was the first stop on our month-long visit to Asia - I wrote to the GM to inform him that (1) this was our second honeymoon (complete with the dates of our 2002 stay) and (2) that we planned to arriving very early, before the standard check-in time. In return, I received a message saying that while the hotel could not guarantee early check-in, we would be able to change and relax in the gym and pool area if we arrived before our room was ready. In the end, the room was available for early check-in after all, complete with a special welcome in the form of a bowl of fruit, a welcome-note, the hotel's signature chocolates, and a pot of hot tea: the perfect "welcome back" after one such a long-haul journey. Overall, everything about our stay at the Peninsula was wonderful, from the incomparable swimming pool to the in-room dining to the impeccable directions and instructions when we decided to take a last-minute visit to Macau, and the in-room dining when we returned from Macau too tired to seek dinner elsewhere. We wholeheartedly recommend the Peninsula Hong Kong, and look forward to our next visit.
We had the pleasure to stay in a suite with an outstanding view of the city which is extra special at night with the colourful lights.. The room has labelled drawers and cupboards with everything you will need for a very comfortable stay. The bathroom has his and her sinks and you can soak in the bath whilst catching up with the news on the bathroom tv. The staff were helpful with every need especially when we needed a late checkout as our flight was 23.45. They transferred us to a luxury double room which had all the same amenities just not the view
This iconic hotel is spectacular in every way imaginable.....but seriously the Bar is a huge let down. After trudging through the streets of Hong Kong we were really looking forward to that special cocktail at the end of the afternoon. Now the cocktails are expertly crafted and served (and really overpriced) but the let down comes from the room. It is a windowless closet of a space which would offer a degree of intimacy if no one else shows up. But the shocker are the chairs....most uncomfortable and not befitting such a venue. Treat yourself at any of the other 5 star hotel lounges or better yet go to The Ozone Bar high a top the Sky 100 Bldg....fabulous bar and what a spectacular view.
Lets face it, The Peninsula Hong Kong is just fabulous! Opulent, comfortable and stylish. Breakfast here is no exception. Excellent service with a warm smile. The menu caters to all tastes and is generous. We love it.
It is always a satisfaction to stay at The Peninsula Hong Kong. Yes, it may be one of the most expensive hotels in the city but you can’t complain about the service. From the door to your room, the staff are so attentive. The rooms are large and renovated in superb taste. It is also situated at a great location in Kowloon, right in the middle of the main attractions of the city.
Absolutely amazing experience. It was a little strange to begin with, being taken through the beautiful Gaddi's restaurant and out the back where all the action is going on, then you see a lovely table set up with your names on the menu (which was chosen for us by chef). All courses were fabulous as was the tour and the staff. We went for wine pairings. I myself dont like sweet desert wine so the somalier brought a range out that I tried and still didnt like! Over all a fantastic experience. Small portions but left feeling full, very rich food. Staff amazing.Tour interesting.
Just had a fabulous dinner at this hotel if you eat the set menu with wine it is £50 per head and is such good value for money everything about this was amazing including James the head waiter who was very informative and recommended lots of lovely things to do and see
