“nice place to relax”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We only booked a day room between getting off a cruise ship and flying back to the states, but it was a speedy check in, friendly staff and a nice room. I don't know if I would want to stay here for too many days as the hotel isn't near the water, but everything's only a walk away so it might not matter. The lunch buffet at their restaurant '8' is fantastic - NZ$50/pp but there are 8 different cuisines and all prepared really well. Great buffet, from sushi to risotto, Indian to grilled items. Lots of salads too. I only gave it four stars because of the location, but everyone from the front desk to the concierge is top notch.

This hotel fulfilled all our expectations. The service was good, people coming to the room to propose water or offer chocolates, maybe because we were in honeymoon.

We were stuck in Singapore on our way to New-Zealand and thus arrived one day later than expected. We warned them from Singapore and the hotel didn't even charge us for that night.

Now, the really amazing thing about this hotel is the breakfast. I have honestly never seen such a large variety and refinement in a breakfast buffet. Everything you could think of was there. You could ask for any type of eggs cooking, meat or fish grilling, pancakes and waffles, salads, fruits, dairies, ice creams and cakes.

After touring in a camper van for 2 weeks any hotel would have been luxury - but this was the icing on the cake! We upgraded to a club room on arrival which meant a superior room, breakfast, afternoon snacks and drinks/canapes from 5-8 - well worth it! The bed was heaven and all the facilities we of a very high standard. Didn't rate the spa or treatments - very expensive and not the best by any means but the pool was good.The 8 restaurant was excellent!

If you are lookking for a great sleep then Langham Hotel in Auckland is a great choice. I stayed one night waiting for an international flight and the comfortable king size bed with block out blinds contributing to a 12 hour sleep. The rooms are spacious, but the cable network wasnt as good as the HD that I am use to back at home. Very nice swimming pool with a great gym. I did go down stairs for break fast and thought $80 was a bit steep for two. There are other options but we went the buffet and later discovered a cafe within a 100 metres that we could have had a similar breakfast for $20 for two, oh well we are on holidays. The Langham is about a 15 min walk to the water. It could use free wi fi as the business centre was always full.

We enjoyed our stay at the Langham. Although it is just outside the Central Business District they provide an excellent shuttle service that travels there about every 1/2 hour. We bought a package that included breakfast and in-room wifi, but they provide a free internet access area and a printer on many floors. Our only beefs were the prices of local calls ($4.50 each!) and the restaurant dinner policy which is an all you can eat upscale buffet for $90.00 per person. They do offer a small alternative menu. The buffet may be fine for a 1 night stay but not when you are there for several days. The alternative Italian restaurant "Barolo" has been closed but there are many outside choices available.

As a solo traveller this hotel was recommended to me by locals and Aussies. It lived up to its reputation of elegance and service. I upgraded to a club room which entitled me to the club lounge. I spent most f my time there- breakfast afternoon tea and drinks and canapés- enough to call it dinner! Solo travelling does mean you pay for two- and perhaps club room extra could be modified as one person can never eat and drink for two. My purpose was relax and participate in some day tours- and for that it was perfect. Spa treatment was world class.

Unfortunately we could only stay in Auckland for 1 night but we were glad we chose The Langham Auckland. This is a classy beautifully appointed period hotel very centrally located near the CBD. The staff were all very friendly, the room was immaculate and the service could not be faulted. I recommend using the hotel shuttle to venture into the waterfront area as there is a vast array of good restaurants to choose from. The most disappointing thing I could say was the lack of Wifi access which still amazes me in this world we now live. Yes this place does have a business lounge but its not the same. We didn't eat at the Langham so I cannot comment on the food but overall this was a very nice hotel to stay especially for the price.
