Reviewed 14 August 2011

My wife and I spent 4 nights in this splendid hotel. Situated in Southbank in the heart of Melbourne CBD it is within walking distance of theatres restaurants etc. Our room was large and extremely well appointed ( very impressive stationery ) with spectacular views over the Yarra river and city.We joined the Club which gave us access to the gym with sauna and steam as well as the Club lounge on the 24th. floor which serves complimentary canapes and drinks in the afternoon. You can take your breakfast here if you wish. Food excellent especially seafood in the Buffet. Staff very professional yet natural, happy and pleased to serve you. A formal hotel with a relaxed atmosphere.

Stayed here on business and was surprised at the luxury room, incredible bed, and well appointed bathroom. Location was great and it was nice to eat breakfast looking across the river at central Melbourne. I recommend getting a rate with breakfast included since the buffet is incredibly extensive with lots of fresh fruit and breads.

My only complaint has to do with the hotel's WiFi. The daily charge is steep -- $24.95/day -- and unconscionable in my opinion. Budget hotels can offer free WiFi but higher priced ones have to continue the gouge by hitting up their guests with a "fee" to use something that should be included in the price. I almost expected them to charge me per amount of water I used too. Shameful but not surprising.

If you can get past the WiFi charge, the hotel is a great value and great place to stay.

This hotel has that exquisite luxurious feel about it, from the moment the staff open the door of the taxi and exude a very warm welcome to the hotel. The warmth and friendliness of the staff (obviously very well-trained), the attention to detail in the decorations, furnishings, toiletries, beautiful stationery in our room elevates this 5 star hotel above most other 5 star hotels. The breakfast buffet is not huge in variety like some other hotels, but the food is absolutely delicious. The taste in decorations and furnishings was just beautiful and more elegant than many other 5 star hotels we've stayed at, including Hilton, Sheraton and Marriott properties internationally.

My partner surprised me with this weekend getaway and The Langham was perfectly positioned for all things Melbourne. It is situated on Southbank, right next to the Yarra River and all its fine dining. It is also only a few blocks away from the theatre district. The staff, especially the Concierge and doorman, were all extremely courteous and went out of their way to make sure we had what we needed. We only had a basic room but it did not feel cramped and we even ordered room service after coming back very late from the theatre. We're not normally huge fans of room service food, but this was fast, delicious and (more to the point!) still very hot! I would highly recommend this hotel if you want a central point from which to explore Melbourne. We will certainly stay again.

Room Tip: Keep an eye out on the Wotif website as The Langham offers some good weekend specials.

Stayed 3 nights with a friend for a bit of retail therapy. Service was wonderful, rooms are very nicely decked out with lots of little helpful things to make your stay a great one. The bed in particular was the best hotel bed I've ever slept in. Check out their High Tea in the Aria Lounge, scrumptious!!!!!

My husband surprised me by staying here for my birthday and yes, it is a beautiful hotel but the rooms were a little dissappointing. Rather small and not really 5 starish at all. We paid nearly $500 for the night, that did include an amazing buffet breakfast, but the room was tiny amd seemed a little outdated. The Melba restaurant was yummy and I would highly recommend eating there though.

Room Tip: try to get a deal cos it is very expensive and the rooms are tiny
