Excellent 5* star attentive service from arrival to departure! Refined lobby, luxurious feel throughout, leads to the posh Palm Court lobby bar. Large spacious luxurious bedrooms and bathrooms. Ultra comfy beds - had the best sleep! Internet in the room was fast and reliable - watched Netflix movies without a glitch.

The rooms are quite nice - We had a large corner room on the 1st floor on the Kent St side. The bed was very comfy. The pillows were great. The furniture was spotless. The only negative was that the room was very, very noisy. Large single pane windows just above a street which has buses, trucks, etc at all... More

Shared a lovely anniversary weekend at this hotel. The rooms are very spacious and the bed was super comfortable. The food in both the bar and restaurant is sensational. High tea is a must whether you are staying at the hotel or not. Have already rebooked a return stay!

I stayed at The Langham Sydney this week for the first time. The hotel was beautiful and the room enormous and inviting. Whilst a few minutes out of the city, it was nice and quiet. My only negative was with the eggs at breakfast. There were none on the (extensive) buffet and after waiting for a chef to appear, I... More

The Langham is absolutely stunning and the service impeccable. The new refurb takes me to Paris and I could sit and appreciate the level of design and detail for hours. I have a total hotel crush and will be back!

We had a 2 day Conference here with our senior Management. The service from start to finish was 5 star. Staff were always there to meet our needs with a smile. The service was outstanding along with the look and feel of the hotel. I don't have a bad thing to say about it.

The Langham Sydney is just beautiful. The service was fantastic, from my in room personal check in to my express checkout. The rooms are just stunning with a renovation in 2014 they have a boutique quality feel. Simplicity in the elegance of this hotel and the natural graceful manner of all there staff. Thank you for a wonderful stay, I... More

The difference between a good and a great 5 star hotel is the Service and the Langham has this down pat. We had a problem with our room due to noise from the Neighbours. No sooner than we had called downstairs. We had a bellboy at our door with keys to a new room swiftly filled by some chocolates and... More

The Langham is absolutely gorgeous and my pick of the best hotels in Sydney, having stayed in a many number of them over the time. The Langham (previously the Observatory) under went a refurb in late 2014 and the rooms are simply exquisite. The staff are attentive and friendly they do a great job of making each guests feel special.... More
