Beautiful rooms and really good service. The hotel is really central. A little expensive eg breakfast is €45 per person for the buffet ...The only thing it lacks is a roof top pool. Good for special occasions.

Excellent and very well situated; returning to the comparative quiet of that end of Kent Street was a daily pleasure. We were allocated a room on the top (3rd) floor, overlooking the street, as requested - it seems contrary but a street view is better than the harbour view because of the Crown Sydney construction work in Barangaroo. The breakfast...

If you are visiting Sydney for the first time you need to stay at The Langham Sydney. With it's close proximity to everything you can walk to everything and explore the city in a very unique way. Langham properties seem to be in the most ideal locations, walk to everything, great views, and yet still quiet and relaxing. This property...

Dear Langham, before you were the Langham you were The Observatory, a place of consistently high and personalized service. I liked it so much in 2006 I decided to choose the Observatory as my wedding hotel. Fast forward 10 years for nostalgic reasons I decided to go back. My wife and I booked a room and made it very clear...

Beautiful boutique hotel with super-friendly staff and services! Went there for a special city get-away with husband and enjoyed every minute of our stay. The Langham is definitely on top of our list for hotels get-aways and when we come back we will be aware of other amazing opportunities that hotel can provide, like a private picnic on the Observatory...

If you are not really a big fan of Sydney Opera House View, but more like a luxury seeker - this is the one you have to stay in Sydney. Not locating in a very convenient location in Bungalow area and now it is under construction which may takes another while to complete. Yet given its style, design, quietness and...

We had a great stay with excellent service, terrific food, rooms, views, etc. The hotel feels brand new and has a blend of both edge and style that reminds of Miami beach meets London. I highly recommend.

Just a couple of blocks from the touristy grime of The Rocks, tucked in between all the old workers' cottages with views of the harbour on one side and a lone lovely tennis court on the other. The rooms are light, bright and predominantly white. The terraced rooms are the best, fresh and airy. The spa is lovely. Breakfast surprisingly...
