“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

It was a generally wonderful hotel. Cannot fault anything. Room was comfortable and well lit. Even the bathroom had a Villroy & Bosch toilet, how fancy is that?!
great location, on the river across from the train station, near restaurants and not too far from the art museums.
the restaurant in the hotel, Melba, has a buffet dinner that is amazing. Has everything you could think of. And the buffet breakfast was wonderful also

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a river view

Stayed there twice last year, both just quick weekenders with friends Couldn't fault the place. Great staff, great rooms, great service, great location at Southbank. Just made our impromptu weekend that much better. Will definitely be back again this year.

The Langham Hotel is well located at the Southbank, just within a short walking distance to the Crown Casino and a large selection of restaurants, Chinatown and the railway station. Just a stones throw from the hotel is a 7-Eleven Store that you can pick up your knickknacks.
Check-in was flawless. We were booked in the Club level which allowed us complimentary breakfast, afternoon tea and per-dinner drinks on Level-24 as well as complimentary WiFi.
The room was large and airy with views over the river and Melbourne. We had a welcome chocolate and a bowel of fruits on arrival. There was a large flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities and bottles of water. There was also a writing desk and a settee.
The bathroom consisted of a toilet, shower and a separate bath. Water flow was excellent with piping hot water.
We were a group of fanatic golfers, so we had 2 rental cars that we Valet parked in the hotel at AU$50/- per night per car. The excellent service of the concierge loading and unloading the golf bags and moving the cars in and out a couple of times a day is highly commendable. The hotel is conveniently located for us to drive to the various golf courses each day.
The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Particular mention to Suzanne on level 24 lounge. I apologise for not recalling the names of the other very excellent staff.
I met the General Manager Ben and was pleasantly surprised that the recalled our previous visit to his hotel a couple of years earlier.

This was a luxurious, comfortable, welcoming, helpful, guest-centred hotel. We had a room overlooking the river - a view from which I'll attach when we return home - which was just lovely. Well located within walking distance of many of the city's attractions. Concierge was particularly helpful in organising trips. Only niggle was that w-fi was not part of the package. One had to pay, use the hotel's facilities, or take your device into the lobby. Not something one would expect of a high class hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the river

Nice rooms, good quality, comfortable beds, excellent location (close to river, close to Botanical Garden, both give excellent early morning jogging opportunity, at the lobby they even offer a map to hang around your neck so you don't get lost, warm and cold water bottles and towels!). Breakfast buffet gives good selection, good quality. WiFi works well throughout the building. Staff attitude very nice, makes you feel welcome. Perfect place to stay on business trips.

Room Tip: Try to get corner room for two windows, brighter rooms

We stayed at the Langham for three nights for our 20th wedding anniversary. Everything about the hotel from the room to the service and the staff were all of any excellent standard. Would definitely stay there again.
