5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We had a lovely stay, the second time I had stayed , the last time was 35 years ago and I was in awe then as a youngster, the hotel is now so much bigger as it was the and I was smaller. Non the less a great stay and I will return. The tradition carries on .

Stayed in a suite, was very large and had complimentary fine chocolates, fruit, and tea upon arrival . We stayed in the older part of the hotel. It was nicely renovated but you can still see and feel the historic nature of this hotel. I Prefer modern but it was fine. Afternoon tea was okay, not as great as it hyped. I actually enjoyed the film on continuous loop on TV showing the history of the HK peninsula....very interesting. Was at the Tokyo Peninsula before coming to this hotel, so was a little let down bcs the tokyo peninsula was perfect to a t. But this one was good nonetheless.

Room Tip: The older part of hotel attractive for those who like classic , but if you want modern, ask for room...

The Peninsula in Shanghai has been the yardstick against which we measure all other hotels so we looked forward to seeing if the Hong Kong Peninsula would best it.

Our Peninsula experience started even before our arrival with several email exchanges to check on our bedding preferences (we decided on down pillows and duvet).

Our Superior Suite was on the fourth floor and had a spectacular view of the Victoria Harbour. At 86sqm, it had a good-sized bedroom with a separate living area. Our son's bed came complete with Peninsula Pagebear-motif sheets. Fluffy slippers, child toothbrush/toothpaste and a plastic cup were also thoughtfully provided.

Samsung Galaxy tablets control the room’s temperature, curtains, TV and lights. We were most impressed with the technology. It was user-friendly and intuitive without being intrusive. International phone calls are free if you use VOIP, and local calls are also FOC.

The TV can be controlled via the tablet or a remote control but we much preferred the remote to navigate through the huge selection of channels. On top of the local TV stations, China TV, and news stations, there were also free movie channels and international cable stations. WiFi is fast and unrestricted. You can connect up to 4 devices per room.

Our bedroom was luxuriously appointed with dark wood surfaces polished to a high shine. Unlike most hotel rooms, this one had plentiful storage space and a large walk-in closet. Also in the walk-in closet is a valet box that the housekeeper can access from the hallway without entering the room. Laundry was left in the box at 11.30am and was returned, impeccably folded and laundered at 6pm. Impressive.

The dressing table features an oh-so-cool retracting mirror that’s backlit. In the drawers are also a nail dryer and hairdryer. Bedside tables have charging stations with international outlets (no need for adaptors!), and USB and iPad/iPhone chargers. Here you’ll also find noise cancellation headphones and iPad extension cords.

In the living room, the study table was equipped with an all-in-one printer/scanner/photocopier. Naturally, you can expect a Nespresso machine, tea-making facilities, wine fridge, and mini-bar. Fresh fruits are replenished daily. Housekeeping was flawless.

The hotel also has some great restaurants. We ate at the Verandah for buffet lunch and The Lobby for high tea. Both were worthwhile experiences.

Our suite came with the use of a chauffeured Mini Clubman for three hours daily but with only two Minis available, you’re advised to book at 7am to ensure you can get hold of one.

The concierge team was enthusiastic and engaging. We particularly liked Sumie who was friendly, gracious and extremely helpful in assisting us with directions and in booking restaurants.

We shall be back for another stay at The Peninsula!

What an amazing hotel. Loved the tea time in the Lobby serenaded by live orchestra. Great location in center and next to harbor. Everything within walking distance. Great service. Amazing food. Clean rooms. Marvelous bathrooms. Loved the toiletries.

Room Tip: Try to get a harbor view room reservation

We celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival there.
We stayed in a superior suite, it was big & comfortable. The decoration was delightful.
Having dinner at Gaddi's, the food was absolutely delicious. Moreover, we enjoyed the superb performance very much !
All the staff provided the high standard services. They were polite & helpful.
Luckily, 4 pieces of mooncake were delivered to our bedroom. Delicious & famous !
We did enjoy a pleasant night !

Have stayed a few times in the Peninsula - in fact where else in HK would you stay ??

The hotel amenities and service are fabulous and really defy superlatives. Rooms with a harbour view are superb, both with the view of the harbour and the symphony of lights as well as the technology in the rooms allowing everything to be operated from an I-Pad. Restaurants are fantastic and what can you say about the Afternoon High Tea in the lobby - words are not enough to describe the service, selection of goodies, and location. If you have never been o the Peninsula you need o do so - it is truly one of the greatest hotels in the world.

Room Tip: Book harbour view rooms and always book the Rolls Royce transfer from the Airport as arrival and che...

I stayed for four nights in August with a friend and loved every minute! The hotel oozes luxury and sophistication with a service level to match. The rooms are beautifully and tastefully decorated with an array of electrical gadgets (tablets to operate every possible function - tv, curtains, room service menu, lights etc. etc.), a beautiful marble bathroom with an amazing shower and plenty of storage, plus the all important nail dryer ;)
The beds were sublimely comfortable with fantastic linen and I slept sooo well!
Fresh fruit and water is provided every day, a helpful concierge sends messages via the fax, the drop box and also by voicemail ensuring you never miss a message! They are very helpful with restaurant recommendations / bookings and always followed up.
The breakfasts are amazing - what a great way to start the day, albeit bit cheaply! They are approx. £25 per person but the spread is all delicious with yummy pastries, fresh fruit, yoghurts, cheeses, cold meats, cooked station, Asian options and lovely coffee and juices. We didn't need lunch!
The spa is a wonderful place to take some time out of the hustle and bustle of HK and relax with great views over the harbour.
All in all a great stay and I would not hesitate to recommend or return.
