From the moment we arrived in HK we loved everything about it and the Langham capped off what was to be a very pleasant and most memorable stay.
We caught the airport express into Kowloon, which takes about 20mins followed by a short bus transfer to your hotel. The train is safe, clean and easy to negotiate. Would recommend this to everyone as it's a good way to see the HK scenery before you get into the hustle and bustle of Kowloon and HK central.
The return leg via the train station is also handy because you can check your bags in without having to go to the airport. You'll appreciate this when you see the long queues. It also frees your time up and allows you do other things before leaving HK without having to rush to the airport.
The Langham itself is in the heart of Kowloon. Everything is within walking distance. Nathan Rd, the ferry terminal and the large shopping malls are only a 5min walk away, the MTR is across the road and the street markets are easily within walking distance if you want to take in some of the HK street life. Recommend this if this is your thing. My wife and I felt safe throughout.
We were greeted by kind, friendly and helpful hotel staff. The entrance was clean and very elegant in appearance. The legendary and renowned Langham scent was ever present and very welcoming. Valerie at the front counter checked us in. She was friendly and helpful and provided us with an upgrade, without asking, from a deluxe room to a grand langham room. We were very appreciative of this kind gesture.
The room was beautiful, spacious and clean. We had a large king size bed, 40inch TV, work desk and excellent lighting. Room service was twice daily, which came with complementary water and fresh fruit. There's a fridge with various food and drink in it - it's also large enough to put you own things in it . The bathroom was beautiful with it's marbled tiling. It had a separate bath and shower. You were able to open the shutters and watch TV whilst having a bath.
The facilities were excellent. There's a complementary gym, outdoor pool and spa, shower facilities and sauna on the 15th floor. Again you're greeted by friendly and helpful hotel staff handing out clean fresh towels and water as you enter.
We had breakfast at Hotel. The food was good and reasonably priced. We also had dinner one night at the NY deli, which is within the hotel building. Again the food was good and reasonably priced.
Overall the Langham is an excellent hotel. The service and everything about it was perfect!! The room and facilities are excellent. The hotel staff are GENUINELY friendly and very helpful.
I would recommend the Langham to everyone!!!!
