“"Perfect weekend stay"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

We were an early arrival due to a day at the Caulfield Cup. The room was not ready which was to be expected so we made use of the Spa area to change and freshen up. Spa was spotless with eveything that you required to be able to change and get to the track.
On return to the hotel the bag was in the room and beds turned down.
Room was spotless and a couple of special requests had been catered for.
We had breakfast in the Club Lounge the first morning and in Melba's on the second. Overall Melba's had better choices but the Club coffee was far away better than the buffett.
I couldn't fault our stay and would recommend The Langham to everyone who wants to spoil themselves

Room Tip: No bad views from what I could see of the rooms.

My partner and i stayed here last saturday night. The staff were excellent, cater to your every need. The hotel itself is very elegant, lovely. We couldnt fault it at all. We booked the wish upon a star package which is quite good value considering.

Booked the room as a surpirise as part of a marriage proposal. Parked underneath so girlfriend thought we were just in Southbank for dinner. staff were great. When we walked through the front door with bags the staff offered to take them up to the room. Quick check in. booked a river room direct. great view over the river to flinders street aand the city. i took nibbles and drinks with me and we sat in the window and watch the city for the while. Clean room, fluffy slippers, devine bed, far tooo many pillows to choose from. Breakfast at Melbas is Amazing. Eat till your eyes pop out. Late check out meant we could do some quick shopping in the morning. More than we would normally spend for a hotel but a wonderful stay for a special night. We stayed at the Bellgio when in Vegas but felt out of place - we could afford the rooms but not the rest of the experience. We felt much more comfortable at the Langham.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for a river view room if you like to watch the world go by.

My fourth stay this year. This time we treated ourselves to club access and a corner river room. Suzanne & Sam in the club lounge are just wonderful! They remember every guests name and drink of choice. Floating around the lounge not a feather ruffled making small talk and making everyone feel incredibly comfortable and welcome in their home. After staying at many hotels in Melbourne I will always earmark the Langham as my absolute favorite. Thank you once again for making us feel so very welcome and at home? Love it, cheers!

I really don't see how this hotel is rated #1. The hotel itself is just fine, but the rooms are poorly isolated, so expect to be woken up by early-rising neighbors. The rooms are old, smell of stale cigarette smoke, and the hotel lacks a welcoming common area to just relax in.

The breakfast, while just fine, is nowhere near worthy of the $40 price tag.

So, I don't hate this hotel, but after just having stayed at much nicer places for the price, this hotel is a huge letdown.

Thank you for your review. We do apologise if any noise disturbed your stay with us. We are a non-smoking hotel and have been so for many years, so we can assure you that our rooms would not smell of cigarette smoke. We also offer our Aria lounge – on the podium level, as an area where all of our guests can relax and enjoy a drink, series of snacks or afternoon tea or a light meal. We do hope that you have another opportunity to visit us in the future.

While we stayed at many wonderful places, The Langham was everyone's favorite. The service was incredible,the staff wonderful, helpful, and friendly, and the rooms were large, clean and perfect. Everything was beyond expectations and we would most definitely stay there again if in the area.

Room Tip: higher floors with views
