"The perfect pick for service, location, amentities and staff!"
The perfect pick of a hotel to start off a 2 week trip to Thailand. The Peninsula Hong Kong set the bar high. To begin with, communication pre arrival with hotel was immediate. We arranged for a Mercedes (much less expensive than Rolls) to pick us up as this service also included the meet and greet at the gate when we deplaned. I must commend the hotel for taking good care of me. While flying, the crew from Cathay was concerned that I had a possible DVT so they wired my hotel in-flight to let them know that I needed to be seen immediately upon arrival. When we arrived we were whisked through immigration, baggage, etc to a waiting car. On arrival to the Peninsula we were brought up to our room and checked in. Not even 5 minutes later a nurse arrived to check my leg. It was recommended that I go to the hospital to check further, so hotel staff accompanied us to Hospital ER department and facilitated check in and paperwork to expedite being seen. We were so impressed and more importantly grateful for all of the attention that we received to insure my good health. As others have said, hotel rooms are well designed. As others have said, hotel is high tech; most importantly though is that all controls are intuitive so one does not need to read a manual to open the blinds or shut a light. That’s what is so impressive. US and USB Outlet/charging stations are plentiful so no need to bring convertor plugs. We never had tea as it seemed too much of a quiet commotion with all of the outsiders waiting on line. The only thing missing in the hotel for me was a place to meet our friends in the lobby to relax without eating or drinking. All in all, a wonderful hotel with a most caring staff to match! Thanks to the staff for the great care that I received.
"Best hotel stay I've ever had"
I must say this is the best hotel experience that I have ever had and I have tried many different hotels worldwide, but this has been the greatest experience. Every detail thought of and the attentiveness of staff is on another level. The luxuriousness of the rooms is amazing. I would definitely recommend the Rolls Royce hotel transfer as well
"ATERNOON TEA AT THE PENINSULA HOTEL."
We had been recommended to try this Iconic hotel's afternoon tea when we recently visited Hong Kong. It is best to arrive by 3pm we were told to avoid the queues!!. I asked our hotel which was the best time to arrive and they said 2pm is the best time. We walked from our hotel which was nearby to arrive there by 2pm and there were already people queuing!!. I could not understand why this hotel does not accept any bookings. One has to walk through the shopping arcade and take one's position in the queue whilst queuing admiring the shop windows perhaps which were adorned with with a variety of gifts, mainly jewellery. Suddenly an orchestra started a variety of music whilst we waited for our seat at the many tables. However their choice of music could have been better!!. I really enjoy classical music but this was not very entertaining, there was a change of music when they placed a song from Frozen!!. Eventually after an hour and 45 minutes we were shown to a table for two. This table was half way across the very large open plan tea hall I would call it not really my idea of comfort. The doors were constantly being opened and closed from the other side of the hall with hotel guests arriving with their suitcases !!. We were offered the menu and quite quickly a lady came to take our order. However when one has queued for such a long time I think at least 10 minutes break should be granted after been offered the menu. I declined to order straight away!!. We ordered tea for two which included coffee/teas, sandwiches ,scones,jam and cakes. It was served on a silver cake stand. The sandwiches were filled with tuna, very disappointing at least the hotel could have included smoked salmon !!. Also cucumber and ham. Well we were very disappointed all in all. The scones should have come out of the oven a bit sooner and were overcooked. The variety of cakes were also a bit shameful. I spotted a cake which I though was filled with a fresh strawberry but it was actually a strawberry syrup. All in all the tea was not up to the standard of this Iconic Hotel or anywhere else that we have travelled in the world!!.
Undoubtedly, the peninsula hotel is the most luxury hotel in Kowloon side!. What I like about this hotel is about there legendary service, charming lobby and the most beautiful view in HKG! The view here is unmatched! Its high tea is the world renowned. Though their restaurants are very conservative but it's all scrumptious. The guest room is quite modern now. Besides! It's very convenient to go shopping in Kowloon!
"A classic that lives up to its reputation"
The hotel long has had a five-star reputation and it lived up to its billing during our visit. Favorable Kowloon location, excellent rooms, appealing common areas, and The Bar was great fun. White-glove service as well. Expensive, but you know that already before you go there.
