“There's no place like a luxurious home.”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Coming back to the Langham Melbourne is like coming home, I always feel so looked after and just love the luxury of the rooms and service. The beds are so comfortable and the pillows (I like feather) are just great. I have stayed in the club plus the general floors and although the pampering (and the luscious food) you get in the club are great, so too will be your experience in the general floors. The easy access though the side door to Southbank is also an added bonus.
You want a photo experience, start at the front entrance and follow it up with the foyer and staircase to Alto and Melba.
But the best fun is actually ordering room services, which comes complete on the old fashioned trolley, decked out in white linen, with a flower and choclates. I felt like I was in an old Holywood movie....
So click your heels together.... there is not place like the Melbourne Langham, there is no place like the Melbourne Langham.

This must be one of the loveliest hotels in Melbourne - and shoulld rank very highly throughout the world.
if I really tried I would struggle to find anything to criticise, and, given a half a chance I would return in a heart-beat

A serious 6* which provides those subtle extras that make all the difference without appearing pretentious. The Langham gets it right – excellent location, imaginative food (Melba), relaxed surroundings, good facilities (especially club - well worth the extra $$) and staff who were without exception pleasant and attentive (despite an alarming habit of constantly enquiring ‘how I was’).

The Langham is not cheap, and nor should it be, but I consider (I was travelling independently) it money well spent and Melbourne, and all that was going on at the time, the more enjoyable for having chosen to stay here. I would certainly recommend it

Room Tip: higher the better

As most reviews suggest, great service, atmosphere, and for this stay, great value !! prepaid 45days out gave a price of $502/2 nites.
Room on 21st floor gave views over Yarra and no noise from Southbank crowds.
Would love to stay again !!

Stayed at the Langham as the first stop on a tour of Australia with a top rated tour company. The hotel is lovely with magnificent views over the Yarra River. The buffet breakfasts and dinners were superior in both quantity and quality to satisfy the most discerning palate. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. My only gripe, and it is not insignificant, is the quality of the WiFi in the rooms. In 2013, a hotel of this quality should have WiFi which is easy to access, reasonably fast, and consistent in its service. The Langham failed to meet this standard. Otherwise, the hotel is first class.

Look, it's okay, and that's where the biggest problem lies. My partner and I wanted a long weekend in the best hotel in Melbourne, so the Langham was, what I thought to be the best option. Turned out, once you were past the awesome lobby (which is pretty spectacular) that was it. The bed needed a new mattress, (dents and a bar right down the middle so you were pretty much stuck sleeping in one spot) the shower/spa was average (the sink busted) and everything just a bit meh. To be honest, looking at the prices of things, I felt like I had fallen into a giant tourist trap. All glitter no substance. The clincher being a $27 martini with Bombay gin. Seriously? I felt like a right idiot when I was hoodwinked by that.

It was a nice hotel. The staff were lovely, bar one who thought it more polite to only speak to males and not the one whose name the booking was in. The place looked lovely, the bell hops were a delight. But I just did not see where my money extra money was going, especially when they seemed to keep holding their hand out for more. (Yes, there are some pretty cool complimentary bits and bobs, but I started to get worried about what else they were going to charge me for, and generally stayed away.) Next time I go to Melbourne for a long weekend, I'd be more likely to check out the competitors, which is a bit sad, really.

P.S if you're paying that much for a room, the least they could throw in is free Internet.
