“Favourite hotel, very customer-focussed, great location”
Reviewed November 14, 2012

My favourite hotel in Hong Kong.

Great location in the heart of the shopping district of Mongkok and excellent service all-round. But what makes this hotel stand out from the crowd is its customer-centric management.

Their branding is superb and always has the customer in mind. Eg providing complimentary Langham Place peppermint holders which has a handy mirror on the inside and can be used as a business card holder when empty and lending iPhone 4s for easy navigation around Hong Kong,

The facilities are top-notch and I sleep like a baby. It's clean and the breakfast is wonderful.

Great place to stay for special occassions or if you want to splurge once in a while.

Stayed here for 5days on first week of Nov.

Just like the thousands of great review for this hotel, it live up to all my expectations.
Centrally located due to easy and short walking distance to MTR. Plenty of restaurants and shop around the area. 3 MTR station to TST.

TST and Nathan road are more crowded than Mongkok and that is one of reason we choose langham place. The main reason is the great reviews.

The staff are all professionally trained and provide top notch service. The room are well maintain and of highest quality. we stayed in 30th floor with good view of the city.Breakfast is not the best but its ok. Plenty of options.

I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for great city hotel both for business and pleasure stay.

I stayed during the last 8 years often at the Langham Place. It is always like coming home when I arrive here.
What I like:
* Location: Mongkok is great. You are close to MTR and train station when you want to head towards Shenzhen. It is even easy to go by public transport to the airport.
* Rooms: Enough space, even the standard rooms. Well designed and decorated. Nevertheless some rooms are a little bit worn. Always clean.
* Spa and gym: Gym is nice, not outstanding. Spa offers good treatments, but not cheap. Sometimes I don't see a good value proposition...
* Langham Place Club: Nice lounge, continuous improvements. One of the better hotel clubs in HK. Good food, middle priced wines, good selection. AND: Outstanding team. The club team makes everything possible. You can ask for everything, they help you. I didn't have seen such an engagement in a hotel before.
* Service and team: Outstanding. The Langham Place team makes the difference. As said before the club team is great. But also waiters, concierge, etc. are friendly, competent and supportive.
* Restaurants:
Ming Court: Very good restaurant. But even with 2 Michelin stars it isn't my favorite. I miss the "easy going" of the hotel.
Tokoro: Yes, this is the langham place style: Good japanese food and outstanding beef. Mr Hirayama is an excellent chef de cuisine. If you are there, then give them a try.
* Pricing: Compared with other 5* hotels in HK Langham Place offers a very good value for your money. I'm used to Grand Hyatt and Shangrila, too. Both are mostly more expensive.
* Summary: Very good hotel. It is not a classic "Grand" hotel, it is a superb place to stay and to enjoy HK.

Spent three days here. This hotel is smack dab in the middle of Mongkok, attached directly into the shopping mall. Flavoured air was a nice touch. Modern almost floral tones to all the decor of the hotel, gave it an extremely polished and beautiful look. The rooms were spectacular -- new, clean, iPod dock, TVs, ours had a great view of Mongkok in all its glory. Price point was a bit high but for location and quality of hotel, it was well worth it.

This is a fantastic, trendy and well-designed hotel that I was really looking forward to seeing. Unfortunately it is not located in a part of Hong Kong in which you would want to spend any amount of time. Kowloon is great, nothing wrong there, although if you're in town for business you'll likely be spending a lot of time across the harbor on Hong Kong Island. The problem is that the Langham Place is in the Mongkok district of Kowloon and there's just not much to do there. I spent more time in taxis than I care to remember, which is too bad because the hotel itself is great and reasonably priced. It's just not really within walking distance of much of what you want to see in HK.

The hotel is in the heart of busy, crowded Mongkok, Kowloon. The hotel is exclusive enough that you would not know that once you leave the front doors of the hotel crowds of shoppers are right there waiting for you to join them. The views are pretty awesome if you like to see other tall buildings and rooftops and a piece of the Victoria Harbor. The hotel has adjacent mall filled with mainly young adult shoppers. Walking distance takes you to the famous Ladies Market, MTR, public buses, restaurants of all types. The buffet breakfast in the hotel lobby restaurant has extensive display. It even has a chocolate fountain for your donuts. Throughout the hotel, interesting modern art pieces were on displayed. The room we stayed in is small, but has a modern bathroom with glass window to room. The shower was spacious, but the bath tub did not look inviting, surprisingly. For a five star hotel, I thought the tub should be in pristine condition. The amenities and towels were five star material. The service was excellent from concierge to bell boy.

- Attentive and very polite hotel staffs.
- Spa was not bad, beautiful view and ambience.
- Small and beautiful lobby in the night time, which i always prefer--- friendly atmosphere.
- Good value of afternoon tea!
- Good amenities, clean and comfortable bed.

Cons:
- Might not be the best hotel for those who avoid crowded place.
- Room starting to look tired and outdated.
