“One of my absolute favourite hotels”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Never written a review on tripadvisor but this hotel really deserves mentioning. Absolute perfection from beginning to end. Be sure to book pickup from the airport with the RR to make the experience complete. Dine at Felix, have afternoon tea and dont forget to have breakfast there. Spa treatments are all great. Going to HK? Look no further!

Almost two years of my life have been spent in total staying at this hotel . I have been staying here since 1978 a couple times a year for about a week each visit. I have seen many changes over the years all improvements to maintain the status as one of the Grand Hotels full of tradition and history in the world. What makes this hotel so special is not just the great comfortable rooms ( stay in the old wing for the history feel or the new wing for remarkable comfort and the latest in technology to make you feel there is no need to stay anywhere else), the features of free latest movies selections , the VOIP on your room phone allowing you call anywhere in the world at no charge, the different food bites waiting in your room on your return each evening, all amenities you could possibly want in your bathroom including TV from stations all over the world and radio stations from the web in many languages. Your butler box for newspapers , shoe shine , laundry. Butler service on each floor in your room, tablets on your desk and bedside to operate all controls in your room. A fax machine and a desk with all stationary amenities you may need etc,, it is not the great many restaurants that are some of the best in the world, like Spring Moon for traditional local Chinese, the Japanese restaurant, Gaddi's for superb fine dining since the 20.s , the lobby for high tea every day, the verandah for great views and perfect breakfast and family buffet like nothing you have experienced every Sunday, The Spa that is one of the best if not the best in the world, the huge indoor swimming pool that opens up to a view of the harbor and breakfast in your robe. I could go on. But what I love most are the people working here . No matter what field they provide service in they are the best of the best . Proud to be working here many have been here like me for decades, they make sure to make your stay comfortable and to remember what you like and need when you come back on your next stay. You cannot experience Hong Kong and its history without also staying at The Peninsula. If you have a bucket list to visit Hong Kong, make sure it includes staying here. Don't forget to book the hotel Rolls Royce to pick you up at the airport.

There are countless wonderful experiences from staying at the Peninsula: immaculate Roman/Greek swimming pool overlooking the HK skyline, spacious well kept jacuzzis, large and well equipped gym, state of the art rooms with the most modern technology (don't bother bringing chargers - anything you need to charge is covered), up-to-date movies, comfortable high-count thread bedsheets, and of course, the staff - so professional that you don't even notice you're being served. The service is top-notch, friendly, as it is subtle and discreet. A must try is their buffet breakfast at the Verandah - the emotion inspired by the beautiful display of pastries, cold cuts, the omelette station, the dim sum station, juices, fruits and cereal, complete with a wild honeycomb, is akin to what a child feels walking into a well-stocked toy-shop. A live quartet band in the lobby too. I've only heard that the immensely popular Peninsula high-tea is over-rated, but didn't try that to review. There is a reason why they charge so much for rooms - because the Peninsula is really, one of the best in this world.

Room Tip: I'd go for the old wing (lower floors) overlooking the space museum dome and harbour rather than...

This hotel is beautiful. The staff are extremely helpful, personable and professional. Nothing was too much trouble. We took afternoon tea in the lobby and the food and service were perfect. The bedroom had numerous mod cons and th bathroom was enormous with every luxurious feature imaginable. The bed was super comfortable. Best city hotel I have ever stayed in.

I have been a visitor to the Peninsula Hong Kong for years, and consider it to be the epitome of excellence. The elegance, the service, the gleaming facilities, the food, the aura are all very special. It was for these reasons I wanted to share this property with my wife on our honeymoon. After a brutal direct flight from the States, we spent several nights recovering at the hotel, and using it as our launch pad for various adventures in Hong Kong and Kowloon.

Make the investment, and stay here.

The hotel was wonderful although we did not have a view and were unable to change rooms. The technological upgrade made was supreme, to say the least. From pop-up make up mirror to finger nail dryer, all details were covered by the touch of a Tablet. Very nice from this point of view. The famous afternoon tea created quite a constantly over-crowded area in the main lobby which took away from the exclusiveness one would have expected. Can't wait to see other Peninsula properties!

My husband and I stayed at the Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong for several days and I can truly say it was wonderful. Through our travel agent, we had pre-arranged for the hotel transfer through the hotel's fleet of rolls royce limos. What I didn't expect was to be met at the gate via an electric golf-cart and to be whisked the many miles through luggage collection and then customs. After after our mind-numbing 14-hour flight, this courtesy was enormously appreciated.

Upon arrival, the front desk manager personally escorted us to our room, showed us around, demonstrating how to use all the electronics and then we signed for incidentals, right in the room! And because they had an opening, they upgraded us to a suite with an amazing view of Victoria Harbor, free of charge.

We had breakfast in The Lobby every morning and never had a bad meal. Service was impeccable. One afternoon, I had high-tea and recommend having it if available, but just not on the same day as dim sum (like us!). I had the oolong tea and the food was plentiful. The only thing that was a bit of a hiccup was the shipping home of packages. We came to find out that shipping anything back to the US took time as you have many hoops to jump through. We simply had to allow more time and exercise patience. :)

The hotel itself was the picture of understated elegance. The Peninsula Hotel wasn’t the type of hotel that shouted class, but rather in what it didn't say that spoke the loudest. I found the service to carry a quiet confidence, unobtrusive and lacking in any airs or opinion other than supportive. First and foremost was this willingness to assist that made our stay so pleasant. There was nothing too much to ask. There was no eye-rolling or frozen faces with pasted on smiles you may get at other hotels. There was no sizing you up with chilled responses because you apparently wore the “wrong” outfit or asked the "wrong" question. No, this was a hotel that had so much class that it put you, the customer first, and because of that you could feel like right at home.
