“Simply the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

Who on earth said this does not compare to The Langham in Hong Kong? I disagree it is wonderful. The view is spectacular, particularly at night. The area perfectly situated. The staff are friendly, efficient and their service faultless. On arrival the doorman immediately sorted our hire car return. The reception gave us our room in spite of arriving 3 hours prior to advertised check in.
The hotel decor in the public areas is very stylish.
Our club room with the lounge priviledges are more than the worth the extra costs. The food there was excellent. The staff in the club lounge could not have been more helpful, any questions they may not have known they spent time on investigating and getting back to us.
I now want to check out other hotels in the Langham chain.
If I am nit picking. please put cushions on the sun loungers by the pool.

Room Tip: High floor, river view.

Everything about this hotel is outstanding. The location, the service, the rooms and the food. OMG the beds are fantastic!! I could not fault anything. From walking in through the front door and being greeted by a number of staff before you even got to reception to checking out with them all saying come back soon, the stay was a great experience. The bathroom had the most amazing goodies. The bed was turned down every night and fresh towels and bottled water left. I will definitely be back.

This very well appointed Hotel is ideally located in the exciting Southbank area of town, next to the arts and theatre precinct. We have stayed here from time to time and cannot fault the service, the available facilities, the competent, helpful staff and the views from our River View room. Our room was spacious with excellent bedding and all comforts including reading lights over the bed and well stocked mini bar. High quality restaurants ,bars and room service are first class. A visit (or two) to the 'Chuan Spa' is a must !
Highly recommended.

Room Tip: suggest you book a 'river view' room to take in the activities on and around the Yarra River...

I'd heard the Langham was a lovely hotel but was nonetheless surprised by just how wonderful it was.
This is not for the Versace set, nor the minimalists. It is a beautifully appointed, elegantly decorated hotel that does not draw attention to itself, but instead gives. I felt soothed by the decor and cared for by staff. Well done.

How long did I wait to get here? It was so lovely. You will be very satisfied to stay here as well.

I had a "Club room package" with afternoon tea, evening drink/snack and the breakfast included and stayed on the 21st floor. Fantastic view. They catered well for special meals such as vegan, gluten-free etc. We were very happy with quality, service, food and all. I just enjoyed the hotel life and did not have to go anywhere else.

Everything was just perfect......

Room Tip: Higher floor but avoid the room in front of the club lounge

What is not to love at the Langham Melbourne! The staff are so very helpful even to the point of housekeeping sending me a box of their great hair products because I loved them. A trip to the Spa is a must, but don't expect to feel like hitting the town after because you are just so relaxed. So order room service! Good choice and well presented. Breakfast at the Melba is fantastic and you are spoiled for choice, try the chocolate or m'n'm filled nan bread, different probably bad for you but heck it's a long weekend, enjoy. Try the afternoon tea I come back for this with my daughters at least once a year, again the service is great and the staff so friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking over the river on the higher floors for spectacular views.

I recently stayed at The Langham in Melbourne. From the time I checked in and checked out, the experience was truly wonderful. The staff were always helpful and always had a smile on their faces! I stayed in a grand classic room. The room was always clean with lots of great goodies, in the bathroom. It was handy to have the room safe and umbrella. The bed was turned down at night; it was handy to have fresh towels given at night and some yummy chocolate. I loved the pool and spa, which was very relaxing! The food at breakfast and dinner was beautiful and I loved the buffet, which is unlike any other buffet I had eaten!
I hope to visit The Langham in Melbourne again, in the not too distant future. I had the best time and I will always remember this trip!

Room Tip: Rooms away from the lift are much quieter.
