The Langham, Sydney
Ranked #6 of 180 Hotels in Sydney
Reviewed 11 May 2014

What a gem, the Langham is in the rocks close to all Sydney has to offer but is in a quiet area away from the rat race. The rooms are spacious and comfortable with plenty of room. The staff were friendly and helpful. There are a couple of pubs and restaurants a short walk away. Great location.

The rooms are very spacious and well decorated. I was especially happy with the bathroom. The bar/ restaurant is very good. The selection of drinks were impressive and All service staff were very attentive. The front desk staff was very efficient and professional.

It is close to the harbour and opera house.

Our family of three stayed here during the school holidays. We had scheduled activities in and around The Rocks, and the hotel was very convenient to where we needed to be. We were able to walk with our 9 year old from the hotel to the Museum of Contemporary Art, and it was just a short drive (5 minutes) to the Opera House. We had a "City" room, which was generously sized by any standard, and included a king bed, and our daughter slept on a roll away. There was a desk, a sitting area, and a lovely marble bathroom. The robes were plush, pillows plentiful, and the room quiet and peaceful. The room overlooked the street and hotel entrance, but it was so quiet we weren't disturbed. The pool is the reason we chose to stay at this hotel, and it didn't disappoint. It was voted by us as the best hotel pool we have been in. Super clean, large, inside, with artwork, and a spa, great temperature, excellent products in the change room………..it had everything!!
We opted to eat in at "Galileo" as we'd read it was good, and it was extremely convenient. The dinner we enjoyed was sensational, wine was great, and the following morning when converted to the breakfast room, it delivered a great breakfast. I highly recommend this hotel. We were very impressed and it will be our hotel of choice for further visits to Sydney.

We stayed two nights as a birthday treat, and to attend a concert. Staff are very friendly, helpful and professional. The suggested restaurants for the two nights were spot on and near enough for a walk. Room was large and comfortable. Breakfast was tasty and plentiful. We have stayed at Langhams elsewhere and this was our first visit to Sydney (won't be our last).

We booked this hotel through wotif. It is not the type of place we would normally book but we were happy with our stay. Spacious rooms. Comfortable bed. Good service. Walls in the room were thin (could hear people blow their nose). Overall great hotel. Would stay here again.

My sister and I stayed here and I can't say enough about how wonderful the staff were. The room was lovely with nicest bathroom I think I have ever seen! It was a birthday treat and Nicole from reservations organised a surprise treat for us which was delicious. Afternoon tea and the spa were amazing. But a special mention has to go to Martin from concierge who was unbelievably helpful during our entire stay. Nothing was too much trouble for him and he really did go above and beyond to help us out. I really would recommend this hotel.

I picked up a night here on business travel through a Wotif mystery deal. I also got twin beds in my room however, given I was travelling alone, this wasn't a problem. (Perhaps they do just use the Wotif mystery deals to move their slower moving rooms - but their mystery deals so you take what you get!)

I'll start by saying I normally stay at the Stamford Circular Quay and these two hotels are remarkably similar although i think the Langham pips the Stamforf for quality and finish. The rooms are really beautiful, the beds are super comfortable, the bathrooms gorgeous and they think of ALL the right finishing touches in this hotel. The staff on reception were fantastic.

While it is reasonably close to everything I think there are other hotels that are more conveniently located in the rocks although none of them will have the same level of quality that you will find here. If you really want a treat, book a night here. I will definitely be coming back here for a leisure visit sometime soon.
