Was blown away by the langham. I normally stay at the Westin in Sydney but will switch to the langham from now on. Rooms were beautiful. This hotel has come a long way since it was the observatory. The bar reminded me of the blue room in London. Food was exceptional. Staff were fine. Lovely touch sending a pink cupcake... More

This is a luxurious hotel equipped with outstanding accommodation (recently refurbished), features, food and service. Having stayed in many 5 star hotels in Sydney including Adge, I'm genuinely surprised that The Langham is not higher up the rating scale on TripAdvisor. This hotel suits people looking for luxury, spaciousness, peace and quiet, high quality service, and a Sydney location that... More

I was a member of the gym / spa here (and when it was called The Observatory) when I lived here a few years ago. Hotel is every bit as good as I remembered it. Was a little disappointed and frustrated that they hadn't cleaned my room after I had left it at 07:45 this morning and arrived back at... More

Upon arrival you are welcomed by a very sophisticated white building, it oddly enough stands out even though most of Sydney's hotels are quite tall so it was nice being welcomed to a more down to earth yet very classy hotel. Once stepping inside you are welcomed and bags are taken care of straight away by concierge, which is a... More

The Langham in Sydney a beautiful, charming hotel and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. You can open the bedroom windows for fresh air and shut the internal door for absolute quiet. The bedroom is spacious and the bed is extremely comfortable. It's a relaxing environment.
