6-star experience from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. Have stayed in a few great hotels in the world, but this definitely takes the cake. Rolls-Royce transfer from airport(met airside by hotel rep). In room check-in. Champagne and chocolates waiting in room. Great location on Kowloon side. Caught the 'Symphony of Light' whilst enjoying a lovely cocktail at Fenix bar. Great Whisky selection in the downstairs bar. Bed was one of the best I've ever slept on. Didn't get a chance to eat at one of their restaurants, but the breakfast buffet was great. All the usual suspects of a 5-star breakfast buffet, but the local dishes were all of superior quality, especially the dumplings.
"Stunning location for tea"
We visited the Peninsula for afternoon tea. After waiting in line for some 20 minutes we were seated. We ordered tea, coffee and the selection of sandwiches and pastries. All was timely delivered by the friendly and well dressed staff. The food itself was delicious. The interior of the Peninsula is absolutely stunning and definitely worth a visit!
Arguably one of the best hotels we have ever stopped in - and we've been to a few superb hotels worldwide. A degree of refined elegance from an earlier era, but with the very latest mod-cons - our room was 'controlled' by one of three ipads in the room (TV, lights, curtains, heating), TV and radio in the his and hers bathroom, a coffee machine and even a nail dryer - yes nail!! - and we had a basic room! We had complimentary champagne, cake and fruit in the room for my wife's birthday. Room cleaning and turn down service was highly efficient. We watched the fireworks over Victoria Harbour, on the hotel flat roof area, for the Chinese New Year during which the hotel served complimentary 'fizz' - truly memorable. Breakfast was one of the most extensive we have come across in terms of variety catering for every taste / nationality with high class service from staff in suits - every time you got up your napkin was refolded. We only ate at night once in the hotel, in a small bar on the first floor. The 'posh' beef burger and chicken nuggets were really nice, but with a glass of wine and a beer this came to £70 - I guess you pay the price in such hotels. That said, the hotel is excellently located close to the Star Ferry port and the Big Red Bus stops just outside the back door with a ticket sales person nearly always there. We bought 48 hour tickets for the Big Red Bus and found that a great service, saw all the main sights, great commentary and useful free and speedy entrance onto the Tram to the summit of HK Island, a free harbour cruise and a 30 minute sampan ride - worth the effort. Concierge recommended a Chinese Dum Sim restaurant in the Cultural Centre close to the hotel called Serenade. We were the only 'apparently English' in the restaurant, but as usual, if you go where the locals go you get a fab meal - and we did!! All in all a great hotel - some have said 'tired' but we didn't think so - we saw the queues for the renowned afternoon tea, but didn't partake. An expensive, but a real treat.
"Absolutely first class"
From the Rolls Royce airport transfer in to the Rolls Royce back to the airport our two night stay at The Peninsula has been first class. We've stayed at many of the world's best hotels and this hotel outranks them on nearly every detail. Whisked straight from the Rolls to our room (checkin formalities completed in our room by the lovely young hostess who showed us all the features of the room and couldn't be more helpful). The room itself was on the small side for a six star hotel suite but not the smallest we've had by any means and behind almost all the beautiful glossy lacquer walls were clever drawers and storage for everything we might need. My wife loved the makeup table with lighted mirror, hair dryer and nail dryer. I loved how I could control every feature of the room and even order room service easily from the tablets on either bedside table. The room was quiet, the bed very comfortable and the room service impeccable. The spa is *incredible* Worth it for the unique and amazing 'experience' showers, crystal steam room and dry sauna with a floor to ceiling panoramic view of the busy Hong Kong island skyline and shipping lane. The pool and gym are also very well equipped and spotless. Definitely coming back here. If budget is no object you will find the Peninsula will anticipate your needs and fulfil them expertly, efficiently and speedily.
"Birthday festival of Me! "
A quick trip to celebrate a birthday, wherelse but the Pen. Wow, loved it from top to toe. A highlight was the thermal pools and facilities in the pool area. I was alone, and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful cold n hot pools, saunas. The quality and serenity were divine. Our room was on the 6th floor and my time at day spa was well spent with a customized facial and use of all the facilities there. A divine crystal sat in the middle of the steam room and again I had it all to myself. High tea, dinner at Felix, a yoga mat with a view. Loved it!!
