“Quality hotel at quality prices”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

The Langham Melbourne is in a superb location in Melbourne - very centrally located within walking distance to the city and transport network. The room was comfortable if not a little tight (around 35sqm) for a luxury hotel - but the prices were certainly cheaper than other 5-star hotel chains in the city and only slightly higher than a nearby serviced apartment. This certainly helped to drive my decision to stay at the Langham.

We arrived early into Melbourne after a red eye flight and there was an available room so they were able to check us in for a morning nap - this was really nice and very much appreciated as check-in time was only at 2pm. The bed was very comfy and they have the most effective black-out curtains - great when having that jet lagged nap, but not so great when you need to wake up early!

The wi-fi internet speed was slow given you had to pay $5 for 24 hour access.

Thank for your valuable feedback. We’re so pleased that our river front location along the Yarra River and near Federation Square was one of your favourite aspects of your stay.

For future stays we would like to recommend one of our Club Spa suites, its 74sqm and is wonderfully elegant with your own two-person spa, separate lounge area and spectacular views.

We would like to take this opportunity to mention our 1865 program which offers standard WiFi complimentary to all guests joining the program. We are one of the very few 5-star hotels who offer this in Australia and would also like to recommend you join upon your next stay.

Thank you again for taking the time to let us know of your experience. I do hope that we will be able to welcome you back

We've stayed at the Langham Melbourne on several occasions. Our most recent stay was 25th May. After spending a good 40minutes on the phone making the reservation with added extras, unfortunately we were disappointed once again on arrival. Reservations had not taken care of all the requests for our stay and on checking in, instead of 'check in' trying to assist, all they could do was blame reservations. We had children with us on our last stay who were going to be in an adjacent room or opposite our Riverview room - on check in they were two floors below us! We ordered champagne and chocolates on arrival - forgotten, a gift surprise of their 'teddy bear pack' also forgotten. The addition of club access - also forgotten. The reason we like to stay at the Langham is, it is suppose to be a first class hotel - with impeccable service all round - I am starting to doubt that after reservations for our three stays have not been what we requested.

Booked three rooms for myself and two daughters for one night in January this year and we all didn't want to leave. What can I say, service impeccable, food divine, breakfast unbeatable, location excellent, and one must be pampered at the Chuan Spa of course! I have been to a few hotels both within Australia and internationally and this hotel with touches of Pink is up there with the best in the world. You are missing out if you do not partake the Sunday High Tea chocolate bar. A must for all those chocoholics out there. Would I stay here again-of course. It is my place to stay when in Melbourne.

Just stayed 1 night on this occasion. Swift check-in and also took advantage of the valet parking. After settling into my room I visited the pool/spa area for the first time. The pool area is looking a little tired, but I understand there may be some renovations on the horizon. However this did not detract greatly from enjoying a few laps of the pool and settling into the spa to watch the lights coming up in the city at dusk. Had a pre-dinner drink in the Lounge Bar, great tasting drink but quite pricy for a tumbler glass full of ice and small amount of actual liquor. Comfortable sleep in great soft bed, waking up to view of city skyline. Well appointed room, with all you could need. What struck me the most is the genuine friendliness of all the staff. This really makes one feel welcomed and at home.

Room Tip: Rooms on the East and North have good city views.

Thank you for sharing your experience at our hotel. We’re delighted you added valet parking to your stay as we always like to suggest this to our local guests.

We are constantly improving various areas of the hotel and the focus this year is has been on the Pool area. We are pleased to inform you that the Chuan Spa pool deck and gym have been completed. We decided to undertake the extensive refurbishment after considering the feedback from Trip Advisor reviewers and from the guest feedback forms. We urge you to visit us again soon to see the new enhancements.

Thank you once again for your feedback and we look forward to offering you many more blissful night’s sleeps at our hotel.

Choosing to spend 2 nights at the Langham, we were able to enjoy both the services of the Hotel and their buffet breakfast and lunch.
The Hotel is beautiful old style with great staff. Good location in the city. Our Grand King Room was a little dated, but spotlessly clean and serviced regularly
Breakfast is probably the best choice of food in the cbd...spoilt for choice, yummy soft, moist scrambled eggs with all the extras you could want, or eggs cooked to order...omelette etc...all fresh, pancakes and of course the chocolate fountain..all unfortunately encouraging you to go back for more
Lunch....well a bit of Japanese, seafood, all roasts,Indian, Chinese.....and desserts to die for...all fresh, tasty, yummy and well priced. Try the Peking duck...yummee!
Certainly looking forward to returning

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a river view.....which unfortunately overlooked the pool renovations....so make...

We have stayed at The Langham a few times and decided to upgrade to a suite for this visit - opted for the Teddy Bear Package with the Spa Suite.
The room was beautiful - separate lounge area, bedroom, dressing room and huge bathroom with double shower and huge spa.
Comfortable furniture in lounge area and very comfy bed. Lots of nice touches like chocolates, bottled water and slippers by the bed at turndown each evening. Also found the cute little dish on the dressing table full of chocolate frogs!
The Teddy Bear Package included a Langham Bear on the bed to take home, breakfast for 2 downstairs in Melba Restaurant (this in itself is a treat with a huge array of food and even a chocolate fountain!), valet parking and access to the 1865 Club.
The service, as always, cannot be faulted and the ambience of the whole hotel is very special for those who like to be spoilt.

Stayed here at a recent business trip to Melbourne in March. The hotel is very centrally located, close to federation square. The rooms are very spacious, have all the amenities one would expect in this price range. Love the combination of shower and bath tub as well as the xxxxl towels provided. The view from the room was just amazing, worth waking up at 5am to watch the sunrise.
The hotel was abuzz when I was there, it was Formula 1 weekend so that's a nice extra.
The spa is quite ok, the pool is excellent, although not big.
Breakfast is kingly, there's a huge selection food as well as fresh juices + omelette chef.

Lunch and dinner are also great!

Highly recommend this if you're in Melbourne.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the river on one of the upper levels. Don't miss the pool.
