“Almost perfect - but at a price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

This hotel is located very centrally, just a few steps off Regent Street. My room was spacious with a huge bed, a working desk and a comfortable sofa. Bathroom was also spacious and spotless. The breakfast was amazing and I believe everything thinkable was available there. Staff were helpful and polite, even if check in procedures were a bit lengthy.

Wonderful plush classic hotel, steeped in history. Breakfast is wonderful and we highly recommend the afternoon tea. My favourite piece of history was that Oscar Wilde signed the publishers agreement for a Picture of Dorian Gray whilst dining at the hotel.

I have been staying at the Langham for several years and think that it is one of the best located and highest quality hotels in London. Moreover, it seems to be a bit cheaper than other hotels in its class. My stay there is always next to perfect

The hotel is a true 5 star experience with spacious immaculate rooms, a full-service gym/fitness center, and several very good restaurant. It also hosts "the best bar in the world" which is quite good, but more of a younger and hipper scene than one might expect. The staff was polite and the breakfasts were terrific. The standard set by the hotel was extremely high.

Got an exceptional deal here by booking on the British Airways website. Rate included breakfast and was very reasonable.

Room was spacious and well furnished (for what must have been the cheapest room category). The bed was amazing. Really comfortable and quiet room ensured a great sleep.

Breakfast was top-notch served in the main restaurant by very professional and friendly staff. Excellent choice and quality.

Public rooms were nicely decorated and stylish.

On checking out, the receptionist asked me if I had taken anything from the mini-bar. I had consumed a coke and a bottle of mineral water. Kindly, he said "let's not worry about that, they are a gift from the Langham". A very nice touch and one that would encourage me to go back.

If you need to be in this part of London, I can't think of a better place to stay.

We stayed at The Langham for one night between Christmas and NYE.

Great location at the top of Regent Street, a few minutes walk only from Oxford Street tube station, yet in a quiet area.

Very friendly staff by international 5* standards from concierge and bell boy to lobby staff. I stayed in various 5* hotels in London for business and The Langham's staff was one notch above.

The Grand Room was very large by London standards with a huge marble bathroom with Penhaligon's amenities (Isn't luxury about small details..) as well as all facilities including tea and coffee. Such a large 28sqm room is definitely an exception for London.

Amazing gym facility (weights, machines, cardio) together with spacious changing rooms and a nice jacuzzi / rest area.

Having lived in London for over three years before, we decided to have breakfast at the nearby Riding House Cafe instead.

Room Tip: Classic Room and Grand Room haze the same size and layout.

Everything about this hotel was of a high standard. Very traditional and in an excellent location for shops and theatres etc.
Bed was very comfortable. Slept well..
We arrived quite early so the very helpful chap on the reception desk took care of our luggage and then rang us when the room was ready (only approx. half hour later). Case had been dropped off in the room, which was a nice little touch.
We also had afternoon tea in the Palm Court which was a lovely setting. Very pleasant to sit and listen to the pianist whilst indulging in some delicious sandwiches and scones :-)
