“An elegant and luxurious hotel deserving of all the praise.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

My husband and I stayed at The Langham for one night in April as a treat. The Langham is truely deserving of the #1 hotel in Melbourne, with welcoming, attentive staff, an amazing grand entrance, classic rooms and a gorgeous roof top spa. We got a great deal booked through the hotel website, including breakfast, free valet parking and 12pm checkout. The Langham is an elegant and luxurious hotel deserving of all the praise.

In more ways than one. We loved the design, structure, lines and contour of the hotel, the elegance of the grand staircase and water fountains, the delightful smell of lilies upon every entrance into the hotel, the mystic pink inscribed into the design and the friendliness of staff, the cleanliness of everything and the comfort of the rooms, I have not one complaint.

Stayed at The Langham for tge second time now and it was better than the first.
From the time you walk in, smell the aroma of The Langham it starts the experience.
Stayed in classic room but was upgraded due to staying before.
Room cosy and beautiful.
People that work there are very friendly, warm and up for a chat or to give advice.
Ate next door at La Camera as didnt feel like Melbas. La Camera was beautiful too.
Breakfast in Melba was amazing as usual. Great view while eating breakfast.
Only issue was work being done on room next door woke us up, then just as snoozing again the window cleaners woke us again.
All in all, a great night away.

I had wanted to stay at The Langham for some time and, thanks to a great internet offer on the hotel's website, my husband and I stayed there last weekend. Check-in time isn't until 3pm, but we went there directly from the airport around lunchtime hoping to at least store our bags there. Fortunately for us our room was ready. When we were checking in we were asked in passing by the very efficient and pleasant receptionist what the reason was for our visit to Melbourne. We told her that we were spending the weekend with our daughter and her fiancé to celebrate their engagement and also to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary. Later that evening, after arriving back from an afternoon exploring Melbourne, there was a beautifully decorated plate wishing us a happy anniversary and topped with a very generous piece of mudcake. Little touches like that really make you feel valued.
The room was perfect - pristine clean, and the bed was luxurious. The foyer is quite spectacular and when we first walked in we said that we would be happy to just stay in the hotel for the weekend! Of course we didn't as The Langham's location is brilliant. Just a short stroll to Southbank and across the bridge to Flinders Street Station. We also noticed that the Grayline bus tours also commence close by if you were wanting to do a day tour from Melbourne. We caught the Shuttle Bus from the Melbourne airport to Southern Cross Station and then a free Hotel Shuttle delivered us to The Langham.
We hope that the next time we return to the beautiful city of Melbourne that we will be able to stay here again.

There wasnt much I didnt like about this hotel, it was a great rate for a great location. It had a 'grand' entrance with great service from checking in to checking out. Even the cleaning staff were friendly and accomodating. The room was cosy, quiet, comfortable, clean and with a comfortable, luxurious bed with great pillows. The touches of marshmallow pink accessories in the bedroom were charming.
The food choice for room service is pretty good. The mini bar would have to be one of the best I have seen in a long time.
The location is perfect, 1 km from Docklands, 50m from Crown promenade and all the eateries and bars along the way is very good. The hotel is above Southland shopping mall with one of the best cafes for breakfast, luch or dinner - The Blue Train cafe, well worth checking out.
We went to a show at Rod Laver Arena, great casual walk to the arena, then we caught an $8 water taxi ride back to the jetty right out the front of our hotel in an old gem that once taxi'd the Queen up and down the Yarra
The only issue with the hotel would be security, you dont need to put your room card in the elevator and we saw a couple of roamers come in from the shopping mall staggering around, they were lost.

My wife and I stayed at the Langham for 5 nights at the end of May to meet up with friends from Victoria. From arriving at the hotel in the taxi to the moment we left the Langham surpassed all expectations. The staff were all amazing so attentative friendly and always willing to help. The room was excellent clean, roomy and the bed was so comfy and huge. The food in the hotel was excellent and the night we ordered room service was a superb experience 5 star service and meal. The location on the southbank was perfect and only 4 minutes walk from the shops and cafes in the lane ways. Next time we visit Melbourne the Langham will be our first choice hotel too stay at.
