Lovely hotel with great charm away from the hustle & bustle of the main CBD. Staff are fantastic too. I ran a business meeting at the hotel and the function staff are great. I love their attention to detail. Can't recommend this hotel more highly. Along with the Grand Hyatt this hotel is a class above all others in Sydney.

The Langham is absolutely beautiful, our room was immaculate, tastefully decorated and spacious. House-keeping was superb. All of the staff were friendly, approachable, respectful and professional. Nothing was too much trouble and Jean on the Concierge desk was amazing (as was Pierre). Jean helped by booking tickets and helping me to select great seats for a show the evening that...

This hotel is calm and peaceful. I had a good sized room with a bath and shower in it. The colours in this hotel are calming. If you can afford to stay here it is worth it. The food was very nice. Try a high tea!

From the moment the two friendly door men opened the dual front doors, we knew we had walked into something special. The customer service we received during our stay was exceptional and at a level we had never experienced before. The room was spotless, the beds comfy, the silver service during room service added a touch of luxury and the...

I love the beds, the in room coffee machine, the double basin bathroom vanity, the magnifying glass for applying makeup and the bath was deep and luxurious. The room service food is the best I've ever had. The staff are...

I stayed at The Langham for business. I had a room overlooking Sydney Harbour towards Balmain and the Anzac Bridge. It was a delight to be able to open the windows for fresh air. The rooms - both private bedrooms and public lounge, bar and restaurant are ALL elegant. Beautifully styled with a mix of traditional and contemporary fixtures and...

I fell in love with The Langham from the moment I walked in the door, where I was greeted by friendly staff and the heavenly ginger flower fragrance they use to scent the lobby. Giant arrangements of fuschia orchids grace the entry and the check-in areas, and our room was every bit as lovely. The Langham has become my new...
