1. The Peninsula

Copyright Rory Boland

The stately Peninsula, erected in the 1920's the heyday of colonialism, has a charm and charisma to it that most other hotels would like to bottle and buy. The building itself is recognized as one of the best in Hong Kong and has found its way onto many tourist itineraries. The Peninsula is arguably the height of hotel luxury in the city. Spacious and tasteful suites are designed with Victorian granduer in mind and  have lost little of their stately appeal. Be sure to ask for a room in the original building, otherwise you may be stored in the somewhat lackluster new towers.

2. The Langham

Bags of character, and you don't have to compromise on quality - the Langham is a god send. An opulent design full of domed ceilings and chandeliers is the highlight of the flawless design. Rooms are classic and simple, although the views outside of traffic are one of the few downsides. The location, in Tsim Sha Tsui, is right in the centre of the tourist district, with several major shopping malls and streets and plenty of dining right on the doorstep.

Hailed as a breakthrough in luxury when it opened, the Four Seasons continues to be considered one of the premier leaders in Hong Kong's luxury hotel market. Rooms are well-designed with contemporary decor, the highlight of which is the wall-to-wall windows, offering breath-taking views of the harbour and the Peak. Rooms boast sculptures and Chinese ink paintings and no two rooms are the same. Location-wise, the hotel is ideal for transport, sitting above the Airport Express subway station as well as opposite the Star Ferry pier.

The Island Shangri-La combines wonderful opulence with all the amenities of the best business hotels. Rooms in hues of orange and red are warm and spacious, with outstanding views of either the Peak or the Harbour. Attached to Pacific Place, one of the most upmarket malls in Hong Kong, the hotel is perfectly placed if you want a little peace and quiet from the city but don't want the distance.

5. Mandarin Oriental

After an eight-month renovation the famed Mandarin Oriental has reopened its doors. The renovation has sadly done away with the in-room balconies, but in return guests can look forward to far more spacious rooms; always at a premium in Hong Kong. Located right in the middle of Central, the hotel can probably boast the best location in the city. Its 500+ luxury rooms are full of opulent touches, just check out the antique ice bucket, and the service is impeccable.

6. Rennaisance Harbour View Hotel

The Renaissance is all about location, location, location. Attached to the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, you could conceivably be here for a three day convention and never leave the building. Rooms are simple, but attractive, and splashes of red make them far more warming than most business focussed hotels. One of the big pluses of the Renaissance is the stellar service - staff are some of the friendliest and most attentive in the city.

7. Langham Place Hotel

A hotel that has received rave reviews since its opening and rightly so. Innovation is the key word at Langham Place and you'll find the hotel literally on the cutting edge of technology. From in room i-homes, where you can plug in your i-pod, to a phone system allowing free sms’, the list of gadgets is endless- you can even book using Skype. The hotel hasn't let the gimmicks affect its bread and butter operations; faultless service, spacious and fashionable rooms and a matchless spa complete the package.

8. Regal Airport Hotel

If you're just passing through the city or visiting the Asia-World Expo, the Regal Airport Hotel is the natural choice. Unlike most airport hotels that simply rely on their convenience to sell the place, the Regal has gone the full nine yards and is a quality hotel in its own right. Rooms are sparse with lots of whites and browns, and it can feel like you're sleeping in a boardroom. But what the hotel lacks in character, it makes up for in amenities with several award winning restaurants a fully equipped spa making it the pick of the Airport hotels.

9. The Excelsior

Once the creme de la creme of Hong Kong hotels the, Excelsior has fallen from the leader board in recent years. However, the excellent service that got in noticed in the first place still make it one of the best value four-star hotels in the city. Rooms are well-appointed, if a little 'cosy', with some offering excellent harbour views. The upside of the hotel being competitively priced also has a downside, in that the hotel lobby can at times seem like a cattle market.

10. The Ritz-Carlton

She's back and bigger, bolder and - in some people's opinion better than ever. Set inside the International Commerce Centre - the city's tallest skyscraper - the Ritz Carlton can now claim to be the highest hotel in the world. A complete departure from the dark woods and antique fixtures in their original Hong Kong property, the new Ritz Carlton is staggeringly contemporary. Alongside a designer interior you'll find they've gone the extra mile in luxury - with in room telescopes to see the skyline and Nespresso coffee machines
