Had a very comfortable weekend, splashed out on afternoon tea :-) A great hotel that is truly worth 5 stars. The staff were friendly and super helpful. Quiet at night with a very comfortable bed. Great for nearby attractions, shopping and Theatres.

The hotel itself is quite magnificent. The reception and lobby area are beautiful with wonderful flower displays. The service was fantastic with staff being extremely polite and helpful. My only hesitation is in relation to some of the bedrooms. We were first given a room (838) which was very dated and in need of redecoration with marks all over the... More

Okay, there may be other great hotels but what is so great about this one is the wonderful service. We stayed here five days and received the best service we have ever received at any hotel. The room was large and the bathroom was beautiful. The breakfast was substantial. I've never had someone pour my tea for me. Usually, coffee... More

The staff tried to put us in a smoking room and after a small complaint we were offered a great room on the top floor. Overall, the hotel is great. Its an excellent spot. It has a really good feel and the staff are exceptional. Some of the rooms are small but fine for short stay. We really enjoyed our... More

Excellent check-in and reception staff, very clean room and quiet but sadly that's where the service ended. Poor quality pool area, couldn't get a table in the cocktail bar and rude staff ruined the experience Not the five star experience I expect so I won't be returning.

We've never stayed in a 5 star hotel in the UK before. I fear the Langham may have ruined the rest for us, it was perfect. From the doorman who seemed almost disappointed that we didn't need help with our bags to the wonderfully efficient receptionist who handled silly questions without making us feel silly. Every member of staff we... More

THE LANGHAM....Where Do I Start?....SPOT ON !!!! This was our first stay at one of the Langhams and after doing our research we were very much looking forward to our stay. We spent 5 nights at the hotel and quite frankly it was one of most amazing hotel experiences I have had. After spending a lot of time with the... More

Stayed at the Savoy our last time in london but wanted to try another area. As you enter the hotel, there is a beautiful inviting smell in the air! They actually put their scent in the air conditioning system. It is divine. Sadly, they do not do it to the rooms. We had a family room that smelled like kitty... More
