This hotel is simply the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Having to travel regularly for business in Australia this hotel has that something extra that lifts it above the competition. In every way I was impressed, right down to the smallest details in the room to the service ethos evident in every interaction with the staff. I will never stay in another hotel in Melbourne again! I have told my work colleagues to stay at the Langham and they have thanked me for the hint!

This hotel looks like it should be screaming 5 stars from the outside but when you get into the hotel room it could pass as a 3 star? As you enter this beautiful building your eyes are greeted by the sound of water running from water fountain over marble, the ambience is perfect and is completely what you would expect from 5 star accommodation. As you go into the room you are greeted by a tired looking room which is in need of a bit of love, wallpaper which you can see the seams and lifting edges and carpet which needs to be replaced, even in the hallways. The Rooms are small the beds aren’t king sized beds they are 2 single beds (and single mattresses) stuck together with and overlay...???? 5 star??? nope I’ve been in many 5 star hotels and this definitely isn’t.. Unless it was given the rank when it first opened.. Another thing this hotel had which annoyed me was dry air-conditioning, i understand it’s difficult to have a large building an moisture but at the same time i hate ultra dry air conditioners, feels like you’re breathing in an airplane.

On the positive side the breakfast was fantastic, the staff are very well mannered and i had THE best sleep I’ve had in ages! But for the price tag it doesn’t weight up.. There are newer places in the city that are cheaper with better rooms.

Just like to point out, im always wary of feedback from people that give 5 Stars amazing reviews with only 1 contribution, i surely cant be the only person to have seen this and if these are genuine im sure my points would of been raised earlier!

If your'e going to charge such a high rate for a small room i would suggest you increase the rate a little more and include internet for free?

Fabulous well appointed hotel. Excellent location, close to restaraunts and top end stores. Reception staff cool but professional, all other staff incredibly warm, friendly and helpful. Shop around on the internet for a good rate, they are out there and well worth the effort. The breakfast was OK but unless it is part of your package it's probably not worth it. A nice stay but I wish front end staff would treat all guests equally no matter how lowly some guests seem. You really can't judge a book by it's cover!

Recently spent two nights at the Langham and it turned out to be the best money we've ever spent on a hotel. Everything about it was just perfect, but I have to say the most perfect thing was the chocolate fountain for breakfast - genius idea. Would most certainly go back, stunning hotel, sophistated without being snobish, frienly without being too pretentious.

High end class hotel in the perfect location along the Yarra River - walk to great restaurants, shopping and easy access to transportation. Beds are extremely comfortable, washroom beautiful with granite/marble and the rooms are classic in nature. Hotel staff could not be more helpful and go above and beyond to make your stay very enjoyable. Pool/spa setting is elegant as you look out over the skyline. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Melbourne. Ocean Road Tour is long but highly recommend as the sights are beautiful.

I stayed there with my partner early June and this hotel was amazing. I did a lot of research amongst various websites and this hotel looked like the best for us.
Great location and fantastic rooms. Views form the rooms was ok, but not fantastic. Apart from that everything was great.
Rates can vary a lot from one site to another, just make sure you do your research before to get the best deal.
I recommend you to check JustCheapHotel.com and Wego.com to make sure you don't overpay.
Highly recommend this hotel
