“Amazing, this hotel has the Wow factor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2009

Amazing stay, from the moment you enter you will be amazed, excellent service, friendly staff and buffets to die for, not to mention the massages and the incrediably soft beds. Who couldn't be happy with the option of a chocolate fountain at breakfast, you will be in heaven. For a night of luxury and relaxation you couldnt pick a better hotel. I will carry the memories of a great stay well in to the future and can't wait to stay again.

The stay was fantastic. Relaxing, made to feel special throughout the whole stay and the meal at the Melba was an experience of its own. Would stay there again without hesitation.

The Langham is a well situated hotel on the South Bank of the Yarra. Check-in was prompt and friendly, room clean, bright and well decorated. The bathroom was very nice with a full-sized bath, raindrop shower and plenty of soaps, fluffy bath towels and robes, moisterisers and bits and pieces.
The room was reasonably large, and had a nice ivew. Inclusions: writing desk, flat screen TV, tea and coffee, plenty of hanging space, chais lounge, mini-bar and all the other extras such as iron and ironing board.
Breakfast was very nice (very busy on Sundays), with crispy bacon and lots of cereals, breads and cakes, as well as a chef to prepare omelettes and eggs the way you like. The one improvement I'd like to see would be diners being offered a pot of coffee rather than having to wait for refills from staff.
This hotel is walking distance from great shopping, the Casino and the train station and tram stops are also very close by.
Our 5-star room was very well priced through lastminute @ $395 including buffet breakfast, late checkout of 2 pm, valet parking, two hot chocolates and a cute little Langham bear as a momento.
Will definitely stay again when in town.

Beautiful, quiet hotel in perfect location for a week of shopping , sight seeing and theatre in Melbourne. Breakfast is excellent, restaurant offers several options in styles. Staff are helpful at front desk, doormen very polite and welcoming. Located close to some of the best of Melbournes eateries and bars(try the Bear Brass located within the complex) as well as an easy walk to the casino. Transport is all close by, walk across the bridge to the CBD. Rooms were immaculate and staff from house keeping very attentive to all requests. The Langham will be our choice for next stay in Melbourne.

I stayed at the Langham overnight with three friends for my birthday. We stayed in the Langham Club rooms, which entitles you to afternoon tea and pre-dinner drinks and hors d'oeuvres. From the moment we checked in until the moment we left we felt like royalty. The staff were perfect, afternoon tea was indulgent, the view from the Langham Club while having pre dinner drinks was magnificent and breakfast at Aria amazing. My friends have travelled all over the world and agreed that this is the finest place they have ever stayed. If you are going out in Southbank the location is perfect as there are fantastic restaurants and nightlife just downstairs. You would be hard pressed to find a more beautiful place to stay. If you want to spoil yourself, stay here!!

As soon as we pulled up in the driveway the experience began. The doorman was very friendly and helpful, reception very welcoming and our room was terrific. Right down to the last detail and second we stayed in the hotel we had an amazing time. Highlights would definitely be the staff were all smiling and friendly, complementary bread and chocolates with dinner and the complementary water in car for the drive home. Can't wait to come back!

This hotel is lovely but certainly what you would expect for a typical five star Australian hotel. To be honest, I was expecting more wow factor given the reviews on TripAdvisor, particularly given it was the "#1 hotel" in Melbourne. I have stayed at other hotels in Melbourne that I consider equally as good, and better.
We paid a bit extra for a corner room. It was a decent size but certainly not generous - the view of the city skyline was very nice. The photos on the hotel's website didn't meet my expectations and I was disappointed with the decor of the room. More bland than wow with lots of pink thrown in. The bathroom was four star and pokey - very small shower and bath. And the shower leaks...why do hotels keep installing these? Annoyingly wet. I also noticed a dirty footprint on the bathroom floor... no thanks.
I was extremely impressed with the in-room dining menu selection - an excellent range of quality meals, especially for breakfast. This is a hotel that considers a choice of healthy meal options. Check-in staff and the 12 noon check-out was also impressive.
The location is great if on foot but if you travel a lot by taxi e.g to the inner city villages, as we tend to do in Melbourne, this hotel is not as conveniently located if traveling a lot by car compared to the city hotels. For this reason, we would stay in the CBD for ease of access.
Still.. lots of charm, handy to the South Bank and five star; however, there is certainly room for an edgier five star hotel in Melbourne. I was hoping this hotel would be it but unfortunately not.
