    Peninsula Hong Kong Hotel is 6-star hotel in Hong Kong, if you wish to see the famous Hong Kong artists or international famous artists, sure you can found some of them. The food here is very expensive but once you entered here, you feel VVIP.

    If james bond can rock out the Peninsula (The man with the golden gun) you certainly can rock out as well. High tea has been served here for decades.. be a part of history.

    Still the best hotel in Kowloon. Not sure there is any serious competition on that score.

    I visit this hotel almost every time I come to HK. It's beautiful, classy, and just a joy to be at. I've been here for afternoon tea, a large birthday dinner, drinks at the bar, etc and service has always been top notch.

    My mom used to take me for afternoon tea in The Peninsula Lobby when I was little, and it still holds a special place in my heart. For both kids and adults, the Lobby allows you to go back in time with its regale decor and old-fashioned service. Cucumber sandwiches, tarts, scones, crumpets and anything else that screams "I should be in 17th Century England right now" is served on tiered silver platters. There is a huge variety of tea to choose from, although I was never much of a tea drinker at age 7. Instead, I went for their bitter hot chocolate - and probably still would.

    Get your girlfriends together and have afternoon tea at the Peninsula, located in TST, one of Kowloon's busiest tourist districts. The Peninsula is a gorgeous hotel, and their afternoon tea is one of the best ones around. It comes out to around $40 USD a person, but trust me, those little cakes and scones and the unlimited tea will definitely keep you satisfied.

    Impeccable service, lovely rooms, and fantastic views. I though tea here was a bit more pomp than quality but the Peninsula is well-deserving of its position as one of the top hotels on the planet.

    Superb. Was met on the airbridge from my arriving flight by hotel staff and spirited through immigration and customs into one of the hotel's Rolls Royce cars. From arrival to being in our suite couldn't have taken more than 40 minutes. As for the stay itself, everything from the suite through to service provided throughout were uniformly superb. Nothing was any trouble for the management and staff at this well-oiled machine.

    If you want to go fancy and high class, than The Peninsula is for you. This grand hotel is located right in the heart of the Kowloon side. The only drawback is that it's not located right on the harbour so the rooms don't have a unobstructed harbour view. They're famous for their high tea, which is lovely. Get there at least 30 minutes before it starts as a line will form early.

    James Bond stayed here...as did many dignitaries, royalties, and regular folks. What's so special about this hotel is the colonial grandeur that it exudes even today, in Chinese-ruled modern Hong Kong. Rooms are plushy arranged, views from the rooms are incredible (in the Tower, on the harbor side). Everyone will say don't miss the tea set in the lobby lounge. Sure. I will also say in addition, don't miss the happy hour at Felix at the top of the Pen Tower. The Felix restrooms are not to be missed, trust me, they've got the best views there!

    MUST go here for high tea even if you are not staying in the hotel. I have never stayed here but I always try to go when I'm in town for the high tea. It's a nice experience. Gorgeous hotel.

    I'd also recommend the Peninsula. Make sure you get a harbor view room, and you'll have an absolutely amazing view of the Hong Kong skyline (ridiculously gorgeous at night). At first I was concerned that the Peninsula is in Kowloon, but it's very easy to hop on a ferry (I think it took about 10 min if I remember) to the HK side or taxi over the bridge....plus, Kowloon has plenty to do in its own right and its kind of nice to get out of the busiest parts of HK to sleep at night.

    Aside from the rooms, amazing views and impeccable service, three other things were top-notch about the Peninsula....1) The Spa. One of the best spa experiences I've had 2) The hotel restaurants. We took a private dim sum making class at Spring Moon which was such a cool experience. 3) A helicopter tour of the harbor and surrounding areas (like the Buddha)...but what makes this particularl helicopter tour cool is that you leave from the helipad on top of the hotel. Very, very James Bond, and an absolute must for Hong Kong.

    I love the Peninsula Hotel! Everything is wonderful but nothing as refreshing as relieving one's self in the sculptured urinals in the Men's Room on the upper floor while looking out a floor to ceiling window at Hong Kong across the bay. Even if one doesn't stay there it's worth the ferry ride across the bay to have a drink and check out the men's room!!

    One of Hong Kong's tourist traditions, for locals and visitors alike, is High Tea at The Peninsula. Be prepared to queue, but an important point on your tourist trail.

    Gorgeous historic hotel, a few steps away from the star ferry. The afternoon tea at The Lobby is very elegant. Dining at Felix, the Philippe Starck restaurant, is quite an experience as well.

    We arrived at the Peninsula after several weeks in Mongolia, and it was a fantastic place to rest and recuperate. One of my children was ill from Mongolia, and they had a doctor on staff see him within 10 minutes of arriving. I highly recommend getting a view, because it is one of the great city views in the world. The prices for dining there are high, and there is great food outside the hotel - the lines for high tea are considerable.
