“Lovely but Sofitel is better ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

The standard room and The Langham is pretty good. We managed to get one with city views which was lovely. The location isn't great because you have to get across the Yarra if you want to go into the city. Southbank itself is quite soulless (unless you think the Crown has soul). It is nowhere near the standard of the Sofitel in terms of room, bedding, amenities or location.

Stayed June 2013, traveled as a couple

The Langham Hotel Melbourne was a night to remember, after spending three weeks away from my partner we decided to book a night away at the Langham hotel first night back. We decided to go all out and purchase *away with the fairies* package which was just perfect. The outstanding service on arrival with an early check in just started the night off. We had tea at the Melba restaurant, which started our romantic night with a BANG outstanding service with extraordinary buffet food. The room we stayed in had a lovely city/yarra view, very clean and tidy room with a beautiful marble bathroom. The spa, sauna and swimming pool was very refreshing with the sauna being my partners highlight. Overall our stay at the Langham hotel was just outstanding and I would recommend anyone to stay there and encourage to dine at the Melba restaurant. Thanks, and l hope to be staying again very soon.

Room Tip: river view room just beautiful

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at the Langham this year. We felt so welcomed when we arrived yummy chocolate cake was in our room to wish us a happy anniversary. Our room was up graded to a terrace room which was amazing, we stepped out on the terrace and were surrounded by building and felt truly in the heart of Melbourne. We had dinner in the Melba room this was our favorite part with fresh seafood being hubby's fav and the cook to order Naan bread being mine. Our bed was fabulous a huge king and so so comfortable!! The room was spotlessly clean and had some gorgeous touches like chocolate frogs on the coffee table and everything you needed in the bathroom, a pod coffee maker that made awesome coffee. Then a yummy breakfast at The Melba. The Langham will never go out of style it was a wonderful night and great value for money. Thank you for making it so memorable!!

Room Tip: The Terrace facing north was awesome

We stayed for 4 days with friends. Truly amazing in all aspects. The rooms were fantastic and the fact That we were upgraded to a rivet view made even more special.
The bed... Most comfortable ever. The wonderful staff made it even more memorable . Can't wait for next time!

We recently returned from 3-nights at The Langham. We were concerned that "elegant and classic" meant old and out dated but fortunately we were very happy on all fronts. Gorgeous entry, lovely rooms and for all you fitness fanatics a sensational gym/pool area. We had a couple of minor issues during our stay (room safe faulty and loud external noise on the first night) however these were dealt with immediately and professionally. Special mention to Angelica and Hue at the front desk who were wonderful and efficient in arranging a new room without hesitation.
Great location, elegant hotel - enjoyable to stay.

Room Tip: High high high - higher the room the better

The Langham in Melbourne is still an experience not to be missed. It is just class - from Peter who is still on the door, to our check-in and a small request smoothly managed by Amee on reception.
The furniture and fittings in the rooms are stylish and very comfortable, we found the cost slightly lower than on our previous visit.
BUT we found our visit to the Club somewhat disappointing compared to the previous occasion. We thought the breakfast was ordinary and the pre-dinner aperitifs lacking.
Must haves are a view over the river from an upper level room.

My husband and I (from the UK) stayed here for 3 nights 6th-9th April. We had a fantastic stay made more special as our room had been upgraded we were told when we arrived. Ate at the Melba restaurant on the night we arrived which was very nice and was fine for my husband who is vegetarian and doesn't eat meat or fish. Room was excellent with fantastic view over Melbourne and I think the bed was the most comfy I have ever slept in in my life! Service was second to none with very attentive and courteous staff. Would definitely book the Langham again. Very central location, 2 mins walk to shops over footbridge.

Room Tip: Southgate eateryand drinks area next door or directly accessible walking through the hotel is worth...
