“Fabulous Stay at The Peninsula!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

We spent three wonderful nights at The Peninsula Hotel from Monday 23 June en route to Indonesia. Having arrived on an early morning flight from UK, we were very surprised on checking in at 8.20am to find that our room was actually ready. After an 11.5 hour flight, this was very much appreciated. The receptionist, who quickly checked us in, then personally took us to our deluxe courtyard room on the third floor overlooking the fountain and showed us around.

The Room

Within 5 minutes of arriving at the room, we were served with tea. There was a 50” flat screen television on the wall in the main bedroom and another television mounted on the wall above the bath in the bathroom. Numerous complimentary toiletries by Oscar de la Rente were available together with Peninsula bedroom slippers. There was a fruit bowl that was replenished on a daily basis and a selection of local newspapers and reading material in the bedroom. Numerous other contributors have already mentioned the gadgets in the room. There were electronic buttons to open and close the roller blinds and curtains. Another button to ensure that you weren’t disturbed , and others showing the weather and temperature, housekeeping requests, room make-up, etc. Even the dressing table mirror was electronic at the push of a button and an electronic nail varnish drier was also available. Mini bar, refrigerator and a pretty Chinese tea set were also present. Outside the main bedroom, there was a dressing area leading to a separate bathroom and toilet. The bedding was good quality and we had a great night’s sleep every night. Free Wi Fi was available throughout the hotel at a good speed and we were particularly impressed that free international telephone calls could be made by pressing the VOIP button the telephone handset at no cost.

Dining

We had breakfast each morning at The Verandah restaurant. The food was of an excellent quality and the fresh fruit was particularly enjoyable. The restaurant itself was immaculate, light and airy and the staff were very welcoming, pleasant and attentive. Since the hotel is in a prime location in Tsim Sha Tsui we decided to take advantage of this and explored the other local restaurants and hotels in the area but it was always nice to come back to luxurious surroundings at the end of the day.

Activities in the Area

We enjoyed visiting the Avenue of the Stars which is a stone’s throw from the hotel and watching the spectacular Symphony of Lights show from there which stars at 8pm and is accompanied by music on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. Harbour City, Ocean Terminal and Star House shopping centres with their designer shops are very nearby as is East Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station and the very famous Nathan Road with its hype of activity and many neon lights. Granville Road, Mody Road and Kimberley Road are also worth a visit for those discerning shoppers who become bored with the many designer shops in the area. The famous Star Ferry is an absolute must and costs about HK $5 for a single trip from Tsim Sha Tsui to Hong Kong island. A very popular area to visit on Hong Kong island is The Peak which provides an amazing view of Hong Kong island and Kowloon; it’s accessible by tram, mini bus, etc.

Conclusion

If you are anticipating staying at this wonderful world renowned hotel, do it! I first visited over 40 years ago and although the bedrooms have been updated, it has barely changed throughout that time and is still as luxurious as ever. It has always had a fabulous reputation for customer service and has very high standards. Thank you Peninsula for a great stay and experience, we hope to be able to return again one day!

Simply fabulous - stunning service, gorgeous interior and first rate restaurants. We were picked up by one of their trademark Rolls Royces and zoomed into town where we were greeted by name at the main entrance. Check-in, which was accompanied by ginger tea, was carried out in our beautiful room. We ate at many of the hotel restaurants and particularly enjoyed Spring Moon. We also really enjoyed starting our evenings at the spectacular bar at Felix. The hotel is in a wonderful location and I wouldn't hesitate to return. A perfect grand hotel!

Our room was just an average room, but everything was labeled in the room, and I mean everything. The concierge communicated with you by sending a fax to your personal printer, that was in a labeled drawer. Service is the key to staying at this hotel. They seem to know you, even when we were rag tag and ratty, coming in to the hotel after being drenched by an afternoon shower. This hotel has no view. Even the bar and restaurant on the top floor ahs no view. The only view we had from the hotel was from the helicopter waiting room, and it was nice. For cheap drinks , execeptional service and a great night's sleep, the Peninsula cannot be beat.

I sadly only stayed one night and the end of a whistlestop tour of China but was blown away by the grandeur and luxury of The Peninsula. I had wanted to stay for years after incredible feedback from clients and the experience was better than I could have imagined.

From the moment you enter the grand lobby you are swept away into the history and atmosphere of this wonderful hotel. There was not one thing I could fault - the room, the food, the service and the ambience was perfect.

Quality of this this standard comes with a price tag but if you are looking for somewhere truly amazing to stay, it doesn't come much better than this.

When booking we requested a room in the Old Wing as it just wouldn't be The Peninsula in a new room. Service from check in to check out was perfect. We loved the room which had its own entry foyer, dressing table and sitting area. There was a beautiful pot of tea and fresh fruit waiting for us.
A la carte breakfast was fantastic, everything cooked to perfection.
We decided to do the high tea and as we were guests in the hotel, we were taken straight to a table - the queue was out the front door. This too was beautiful.
The spa is a fantastic place to visit for a bit of pampering after a long day walking the city.
To finish off the experience we organised the Rolls Royce to the airport, this topped off the experience for my husband, the chauffeur also walked our bags to checkin for us.
If you want to pay the extra to stay in its hotel, you won't be disappointed.

I stayed at the The Peninsula Hong Kong in November 2013 and May 2014. At the front entrance to this grand hotel, you will typically see a brigade of the Peninsula’s dark green Rolls Royce sedans. The lobby is an open three story show stopper with a gold embellished ceiling and a first floor surround consisting of high-end boutiques and a restaurant featuring afternoon tea. The staff is unfailingly friendly, the rooms are attractive, designed for the tech savvy, quiet and very comfortable, the pool and spa have a great view of Victoria Harbor and there is a broad selection of restaurants with international themes. Simply a great place to stay in Hong Kong for business or pleasure. An excellent business center for meetings.

Room Tip: Select a room on a floor high enough to have an unobstructed view of Victoria Harbor.

1980 was my Honeymoon and part of this holiday I spend a few nights in The Peninsula Hotel in HongKong.
For me today this hotel is still the best, rooms are all renovated and very beautiful, sophisticated.
The Swiss Restaurant " Chesa"is still my Favorite Restaurant.Imagine you are in a Swiss Chalet in Switzerland but in reality you are dining in HongKong. Staff is wonderful, friendly and very helpful. The Entrance of the Peninsula is still breathtaking. For me still the best.
