The Peninsula

The Peninsula, Hong Kong, China

Our rating: Opulent

The Peninsula is the 'Grand Old Lady' of Hong Kong - the most historical hotel in Hong Kong having opened her doors in 1928.

All these years later, the hotel retains its elegance and opulence and remains 'the' place to stay when in town. There are 300 nostalgically decorated rooms and suites and extensive spa facilities, including a full harbour view, Roman-style swimming pool.

It is conveniently located just a two minute walk from the star ferry terminus in Kowloon, and some rooms and suites offer fabulous views across the harbour to Hong Kong island.

The fleet of Rolls-Royce limousines parked out the front of the elegant lobby, with immaculately dressed bell-boys in close attendance, is one of the classic images of Hong Kong.
