“Prestige and Luxury”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

If you can afford this hotel and you are accustomed to luxury, then The Peninsula is the place to stay. Is it located on the Kowloon side, but it is simple to take the Star Ferry or subway to HK Island.

The rooms are recently redone and they have the most off the charts electronic system in the room that can do everything and anything. It is truly impressive.

The lobby offers a lovely place for tea and morning breakfast.

The French restaurant is devine and should be a 2 star Michelin, however, the chef does not want to apply for such a rating. There is a subway stop right in front of the hotel.

Service and quality are impecible.

Stayed at The Peninsula May 2013, luxurious traditional hotel was picked up in a traditional green Phantom from the airport.

Arrived at the Hotel shortly after 30min Drive, it was late evening. Hotel well presented, traditional enjoyed the hustle and bustle in the lobby area during afternoon tea.

That was about two or three hour wait, for afternoon tea in the lobby. Reminds me of the Copacabana palace Hotel.

Reception and concierge service very helpful, bit of a long walk from the escalator to the room. Breakfast had a large variety of different nationalities.

Overall luxurious

We stayed in the Peninsula for the second leg of our Honeymoon on the way back from Bali flying home to the UK. I reached out to the Hotel in advance to let them i know my wife and I would be traveling for our Honeymoon. The response we received was unbelievable. These guys seriously went to Town with our stay. Personalized greeting from the moment we arrived, organized possibly the best dinner I have ever had with a personalized Menu in three of their restaurants with a personal greeting from the Head Chef. They also organized a special after hours night where we got access to their private members room with a special guest performance. Both my wife and I are Muslim so the Barmen had prepared us special non alcoholic cocktails. He even came over to introduce himself and advise what he had put into the drink and why. Furthermore, the chef for our meals had also prepared halal food for us which is not a standard offering. I have to say I have had some great experiences in hotels but this evening took the biscuit - honestly one of the best evenings i have ever had! Thanks to all the staff who made that evening magical. The names of everyone elude me but Anita Li was the person i emailed so presume she organized everything for us.m I want to say a personal thank you to everyone who made the evening special. (Kevin Tsang, Danny Chan, Dorico Lp, Ada Lam, Ada Tung, Aileen Olympia, Chris Cheng, Jessica Cheng, Keiko Ota, Michelle Ho, Raoul Hoelzle, Samson Lam and Mahsahisa Oba)

We also had Afternoon tea and once again they prepared a special table with a personalized halal menu. This experience was unbelievable and because we made them aware in advance we bypassed the very long queue and got ushered straight to our table. AMAZING EXPERIENCE.

In summary i have to say The Peninsula was one of the best experiences I have ever had staying at a Hotel. The staff were personable, the room was amazing, Food from a different world . Honestly, this stay made our Honeymoon amazing. A very kind Thankyou from both my Wife and I. AMAZING.

Room Tip: get a room as High as possible - facing Kwaloon Bay.

It's nice return to the Peninsula hotel HK. Always excellent services and make you feels VIP. The room was clean and up to date . Basically nothing to complain. Breakfast was good at the lobby and lots of choice at the first floor. Wifi was the best among all hotel in HK. I would come back again for sure.

Room Tip: Any room is good

This was the first stay at a Pennisula for my husband and I. It will certainly not be the last! We made our reservation through American Express, so we enjoyed a $100 credit voucher for food/beverage throughout our stay, as well as, complimentary breakfast. The only negative about the property is that it is so beautiful, that many locals and tourists want to visit making the lobby extremely busy! Our room was superb! Everything in the room (lights, TV, surround sound, blackout shades, etc) were controlled by three ipads. We had five telephones throughout the room, with complimentary long-distance international calling! The staff arranged for desserts, and a bottle of champagne complimentary for our anniversary...talk about luxurious!! Just one of the benefits staying with the property, is you're able to make a reservation for afternoon tea in the lobby which they are famous for! If you're not a guest, you must wait in a very long line to be seated. We walked right in to our table with no wait. The tea was fabulous! The table was set with silver, fine china, starched linens, and assortment of goodies. You can linger for hours! We ended our stay with a chauffered Rolls-Royce to the airport in Hong Kong. This property fall exceeded our expectations, and we certainly look forward to more stays in the future!

Room Tip: Definitely request a room in the original building facing the water.

We had requested the Rolls Royce return transfer and we were pleased to discover that contrary to other hotels (Mandarin Oriental Bangkok for example) you don't have to request additional VIP service, their 'regular' service takes you in charge right at the exit of the plane to the passport control with a small electric buggy and then to the car avoiding the crowds behind you.
Check-in was done in the suite, luggages were delivered within minutes and a welcome tea was offered, together with a huge fruit plate (replenished daily) and chocolates already displayed on the dining table.
Regarding the grand deluxe harbour view suite #2316 we stayed in, only positive things to say except that foyer is totally useless, I would add some storage space there for coats & shoes as it is large enough to make this modification. Otherwise the lay-out is great and well thought. Probably one of the nicest city suite we had. TVs, 3D Blu-Ray players both in the bedroom and the living room, 2 minibars, everything you can expect is there, and more.
Technology is very simple and user friendly. Complimentary high speed internet, on-demand movies at no charge, they did a great job but they could go even further. IPad-like device allow you to open/close curtains, it gives information about hotel services, weather, etc. but I don't understand why you can't actually place an order for room service directly through this device, instead of having to call room service in the old fashioned way. The best technology I saw so far was at Hotel Bel Air in Los Angeles. I hope Peninsula can develop their system and implement the same services.
We had breakfast at la Verandah on the first morning. It is an extensive buffet with high-quality products. We also tried in-room breakfast but it was less good.
The swimming pool (floor #8) is beautiful and feels far more luxurious than what I expected from the pictures I saw. The official website doesn't make justice to the place! There is a terrace with sun loungers but in December it is not warm enough outside to enjoy it. You can be served breakfast and light dishes by the pool. Service is excellent.
Overall we had a great stay. Hard product is in mint condition with nice modern decor, location is excellent, I'm glad we chose Peninsula over the other luxury properties on the island.
