“the helicopter ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago NEW

there is a facility of booking a helicopter ride from the top floor of the peninsula hotel.
the service is run by the china clipper.

they take your for a 15-20 minutes arial ride over hong kong. the view is breathtaking..

it was superb to have gotten a lifetime opportunity like this..

please do it on a day when there is clear sky otherwise the smog will ruin all the views.

Visiting peninsula is like steppiingback in time a true colonial style hotel where afternoon tea is of major importance ( often long queues for nine residents )
The upper restaurant is beautifully decorated and offers panoramic views across the harbour service is excellent

From the moment you land at Hong Kong Airport you are welcomed into the effortless and smooth service of this grand Hotel. The drive by Rolls Royce to the Hotel, the in room check in and the welcome tea brought by the valet set the bar. Needles to say the room is equipped with every mod con you could wish for including iPads to control everything from lighting to curtains. The staff are trained to a high standard and gracious in their interactions with guests. The atmosphere in the Beautiful Lobby is as it should be of a hotel of this age and standard. Concierge Chris Cheung did a fantastic job arranging all our dinner reservations ahead of our arrival. I first stayed at this Hotel in 1980 and its standards have never dropped. I know that for business men the Mandarin Oriental might seem more convenient but in my opinion it does not compare.

Hongkong is a popular destination especially during sale season. Although my family and I tend to choose less swanky hotels, we do not scrimp on the local cuisine. Be it the Chinese /Cantonese fare or English /continental . The Peninsula lobby is our top choice when it comes to meeting up with friends staying here or usually at the Mandarin. I am an avid tea fan , and all the tea offerings at the Pen HK are top notch !
The English influence is quit evident and the scones and canapés are absolutely divine... As for the service,it's Asian at its very best... My next goal is to splurge on a night at this exquisite hotel.. Or maybe two nights...

I recently stayed at The Peninsula over Chinese New Year (2015).

The hotel is perfectly located at the tip of Kowloon, with dominating views of the skyline of Hong Kong Island. It is within 2 minutes walking distance of Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station. Nearby you can find Avenue of the Stars, HK Space Museum, HK Cultural Centre, Star Ferry Pier and the various shops and shopping centres of Canton Road. It is in a perfect location to visit or to travel to the main tourist sites.

The hotel decor is grand, colonial yet extremely modern and classy. The service is exceptional - all staff that we encountered were extremely helpful, polite and pleasant. Staff had a dedicated service for calling taxis from outside the main doors for guests. Housekeeping were also very helpful and any requests or queries that we had were addressed and resolved immediately.

We stayed in a Grand Deluxe Harbour View room and had the most wonderful view of the skyline. On the night of the Chinese New Year fireworks display we did not even have to leave the room - our windows were aligned directly across from the display.

The room was clean, spacious and filled with amenities. Fresh fruit was given for the duration of our stay, and we were also given sweets and green tea free of charge. The beds were clean and comfy. The room was controlled by electronic tablets, so we could control the tv, the lighting and the heating with ease.

We visited the spa on several occasions and the staff made our visits extremely enjoyable. I would recommend booking your appointments as soon as you arrive for your stay, but not earlier as this is not necessary - there were plenty of appointment times free when we enquired.

Overall, our stay was memorable and enjoyable with no issues.

I would note that many visitors are attracted to Afternoon Tea in The Lobby. I would highly recommend booking a table for this in advance at the start of your stay as this is an extremely popular meal, with long queues.

Room Tip: A higher floor 'Harbour View' room gives a sweeping view of the skyline.
