“Fantastic introduction to Melbourne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2011

A great place to come 'home' to after exploring all day. Fantastic service - friendly, welcoming, polite yet unobtrusive. Although 'old style', the service from all staff in this hotel made it an exceptional stay. Apart from this, the location of the hotel is superb - very central on Southbank - close to a wide variety of places to eat, a walk across the Yarra to the city and walking distance to Melbourne Park and the MCG. Highly recommended.

Just spent a week at the Langham in Melbourne. This hotel is just awesome and I fully recommend it. The location is just superb, just on the Yarra River and a few minutes away from Federation Square and Flinders Street Station. The breakfast was also excellent with plenty of choices. The staff were also very attentive, and quick with any requests we had. We took a River Corner room with spectacular views of the river and the city...the couple of extra dollars we spent for this corner room were very worthwhile.

We stayed at the Langham in Jan 2011 unfortunately only for 2 nights as we were moving on to our next destination. When we arrived the member of staff on reception was excellent, making sure we knew where everything was and that Australia day was the follwing day and giving us info to what was going on.

Our room looked out over the Yarra river and the city which was an excellent view especially as it came alive in the evening with the lights etc. The room and the bathroom were very large and had everything you could require. As i said in my title it had the most comfotabe, bed EVER!!! and made the stay extra special.

You got the usual 5* bits complimentary newspaper was a must have, unfortunately there was no wifi in the room but this was not really an issue but something you would maybe expect.

It is in a very good location with the Southbank shopping centre just below it, which had an array of shops and a huge food area serving anything from Nando's to Chinese. Federation square was a 10 minute walk over the river and right out of the train station . There is an excellent tourist centre their offering wifi internet and great advice for anything you wanted to do.

I would definetelty recommend this hotel as the place to stay when in Melbourne!!!!!!!!

Stayed at the Langham january , wanted to come and eat out at some of melbourne's great restaurants- chose hotel for the location mostly. Was a little daunted when we arrived - all that marble, fountains etc.
Despite overtop decor and room a litle too fussy for us - we had a great stay. Mostly due to the staff for whom nothing was any trouble. All very comfortable, great location for walks and taxis on tap for venturing further out.
made al lour gastronomic trips - including those out of town very very easy.
The Area where the hotel is located is on the river.The Southgate complex itself doesn't have the best shops or restaurants inn melbourne but they are all very close by - just across the river ,Would definately stay again

This is the ultimate experience - it's only the second time I have stayed here but it won't be the last. I have stayed at about 15 hotels in Melbourne but this is the one I will be returning to. It's worth the extra cost. Great position and overall everything was of a great quality and personalised service.

The Langham is a beautiful hotel; from the moment you step inside, the hotel staff are friendly and attend all of your needs. The hotel itself is gorgeous, beautifully decorated and has every facility required by a guest.

The location is perfect, a short stroll from all of the best Melbourne has to offer; the city itself, Crown and Eureka towers, even the botanic gardens and the MCG are close by.

The quality of the rooms, facilities and services is top notch; the Langham boasts a beautiful restaurant, where breakfast is served with a picturesque view of the Yarra.

A truly fantastic hotel, I have always wanted to stay at the Langham, and I found it to live up to its reputation. If I ever come to Melbourne again, I won't be staying anywhere else!
