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

The renovations have taken this quaint boutique hotel to a whole new level. Light and luxurious is the new direction. Beautiful quality furniture and fittins everywhere you look. Exceptional staff made our stay very special. I... More

Quiet, extremely friendly and helpful staff ; elegant and good value for money being the top ranking hotel in Sydney by my terms, walking distance to pubs and the famed Rocks area, without traffic, and the harbour a few minutes more. Wines are pricey but so close to everything, this is not the main reason for staying there - a... More
