“Traditional luxury”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2013

Stayed at Langham while attending DesignEX at the Exhibition Centre. I usually stay at Crown Towers but as their rates were unusually high over that weekend Langham was my next choice.

Arrived in Melbourne in the evening to heavy rain and lightning. Pulling up at the Langham the service was instantly warm, friendly and inviting. Check in was easy and friendly, our room (Grand River room) was newly renovated with an amazing view of the Melbourne skyline draped in mist.

It was just such a cosy luxurious room. Ordered room service and it was delicious. I recommend the Valrhona chocolate tart for dessert! The bed was amazingly comfortable and it was just heaven drifting off to sleep with the rain pelting against the window with cracks of thunder and lightning.

Breakfast in Melba was great with a huge selection of food and a great view of the river.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay at Langham Melbourne again. A beautiful hotel with good, old fashioned, friendly service.

Room Tip: Grand River rooms are newly renovated and very nice!

The location of the Langham was perfect for our city stay, in walking distance to everything that we did, restaurants and sightseeing. The view and the state of the room was great. The buffet breakfast was fantastic, definitely a must.

The Langham is a beautiful hotel in a fantastic location. We were able to check in at 1100 and had a late check out of 1400 which was very much appreciated. The bed was amazingly comfortable. The buffet breakfast at Melbas was superb, and the Buffet dinner with its different cooking stations was fantastic. The seafood, sushi which is handmade in front of you, and the amazing naan breads which are also made in front of you were all amazing. The service and attention to detail and from the moment we arrived was fantastic

We stayed here for one night in May to attend a function on Southbank. Everything about the experience was fantastic. Very friendly and helpful staff. Beautiful, clean and comfortable room. Great location. Great breakfast. I regularly visit Melbourne, and would stay here again and again.

I recently stayed at the langham hotel with friends and family. The hotel offeres great food and beverage. The rooms are very nice and have some of the best beds in Melbourne.

Some of the downs to this hotel is that great food and beverage comes at a price, some of the drinks and foods are a little more expensive then other hotels in the area. It still very nice and great quality, but i wouldn't recommend eating there every night as it may put a hole in your bugget.

But other then that, the rest of the hotels features and amenities are magnificent. For example my favourite was the monsoon shower in the mens shower rooms and the spa beside the pool is very relaxing and quite spacious and the 24/7 Gym was a real winner.

Room Tip: I highly recommend that you stay as far away from the lift as you can...

I stayed at the Hotel Langham in Sydney and on my return to Melbourne staying with family for a few days meant I was unable to stay in the Hotel Langham itself. However, I did get the opportunity to enjoy the most amazing High Tea. By the time I had partaken of the major content I had very little room left for the chocolate table and the chocolate fountain but the few portions of chocolate related bites was enough for me to vote this Hotel's High Tea as the best I have ever experienced. It is expensive but the motto "you get what you pay for" applies and I did not begrudge paying out for this wonderful experience.

The location is perfect, just amazing, short walk from so many places you can take a river cruise just downstairs by the river, so many nice restaurants in the area. You can visit most of Melbourne sightseeing by foot, but also try to rent a car and go to see the penguins at Saint Kilda. Also leave early one day and visit the Great Ocean Road! – It is a must!

We were there during the Australian grand-prix and the atmosphere is just amazing during that period highly recommended!

I originally booked a river view room, and I was taken to a low floor room that had orientation towards the river, but you could definitely not see it as there was a big terrace in front blocking the view. I therefore asked to change to a room with an actual “river view”. We finally got there, and it was nice, but I have to say that the room was nothing special, just a pretty standard hotel room. The service is good but it felt too fake for my liking –(you know when one talks or repeats something as if reading a text book?...).

I will rate my higher river view room and the location as a 4. If they had put me in the original river view (without a river view) room it would have gotten a 3 – so beware of that.

Room Tip: The rooms looking from the back side of the hotel (friend was staying there) are as good as the Trav...
