Beautiful hotel in the older part of Sydney. Large rooms, comfy beds, one of the best buffet breakfasts that I've had, pretty pool. The only drama is the day spa was booked out, so book in advance if you want a treatment.

A piece of old England in beautiful Sydney. Spacious rooms with not perfect window frames for a windy city as Sydney. The best part is a lavish breakfast buffet with the best 4ever service that I had. In September 2014 they will start a 4 months (un-necessary) multimillion renovation. Hope they keep the same flavour and prices

Thoroughly enjoyed the great service at the Langham's. We stayed here for my fiancee's surprise birthday. The staff were extremely helpful and courteous. I checked out the Globe bar and had a nice champagne there just before going out to the party and it was a nice and relaxing place to have your pre dinner drinks. The buffet breakfast was... More

We have stayed at the Langham when it was the Observatory and this was our first stay in the property since changeover. The large rooms, classic style and location remain fantastic. There were two disappointments for us. Firstly, the Langham theme involves a very floral pink decor which is everywhere. This is quite girly and while my wife didn't mind... More

ALL the staff at this Hotel were amazing. Huge rooms with double doors. We were travelling with my grandson and they were very accomodating with him. We will be back after they reopen from renovations.

The Langham had meet all expectations and more. I wanted accommodation that provided a executive club lounge where my friends hens party was a haven. We were impressed with waking up each morning to a lavish Continental breakfast, and in the evening drinks and canapés where each food item was a work of art, we felt like princesses. We all... More

I like the Langham Hotels because of their consistency. This hotel was The Observatory and it still retains its charm. The rooms are of a good size , clean and well appointed. Loved the bed, it was very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size and had the amenities you would expect of a five star hotel. Enjoyed the breakfast... More

The Langham oozes friendly, old world charm that screams quality. Although we were in town on business, the plush surrounds & peaceful ambiance ensured a pleasant, restful stay. The service was impeccable, the food sumptuous & the location excellent - within easy walking distance of the CBD, The Rocks, & Darling Harbour . We could not have been happier with... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my weekend at The Langham. The rooms are absolutely beautiful and come with all the extras you may require. Service was always incredibly fast and efficient. We ordered room service for dinner and the Pad Thai was the best I’ve had in a while. I’ve most likely got the name wrong but Raza or Raja was the... More
