“The Langham is the ultimate boutique hotel, great location with impeccable service'”
Reviewed 10 February 2010

I have been staying at the Langham for the past few years, my husband stays for business and I join for leisure. The Langham is in an ideal location, metres from Southbank where I can stroll along the river and is also close to fantastic cafe's, restaurants and bars.

Then it is only a short walk across the bridge into the CBD if I feel like shopping, and the train and trams are also only a 5 minute walk away.

Basically - everything is on your doorstep when you stay at the Langham and the service and attention to detail is impeccable.

The rooms are very well appointed with gorgeous little touches like an amazing amenties kit and everything else you could possibly need to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

I highly recommend the Langham!

Our first impression was fantastic. Wonderful attentive staff and modern, clean, spacious rooms with terrific views of the Yarra River and city. Highly recommend this place to anyone, location is fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

The Langham is brilliantly positioned on South Bank with its multitude of restaurants & Crown Casino. The city centre, Arts Centre, Gardens are also just a short walk away.

Yes, it's not the most modern of hotels in Melbourne now.

And just up the road is the new Hilton South Wharf which is indeed flash (I've stayed there a few times).

However it is the one thing that The Langham does blindingly well that keeps them one step ahead of the competition. They serve. Without fear or favour everyone is treated well. First impressions count and the Doorman at The Langham must be feted as the best in the world. It my ten years of international travel I can't recall anyone who does more to endear that first impression.

The rooms may be a few years old now however I feel the sincerity of service and the complete desire to please will keep this landmark, in the words of Split Enz, 'One Step Ahead'.

Want pretentiousness go elsewhere. Want Class, The Langham answers the call.

My partner and I stayed at The Langham back in December 2009.
The service was great, the room more traditional then modern but tasteful and the bed, super comfy! And the pillows were brilliant too! We could not fault anything about the hotel as everything was perfect. We also had dinner at the Melba restuarant and everything was scrumptious and worth what you pay. This hotel is number one for a reason and we would definitely stay again!

I can highly recommend the beautiful Langham Hotel Melbourne. From it's absolutely first class location, to it's exceptionally trained staff and it's first class presentation I could not fault a single moment of our stay in this glorious hotel. We are regular visitors to Melbourne and have previously stayed at both the Marriott and the Intercontinental. Although these two hotels are fine establishments they simply do not compare with the ambiance of the Langham. On our last trip we celebrated a special occassion at the Melba and decided that next time we would stay here. What an excellent decision, I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough. Thank you for a womderful experience, we would never even consider staying anywhere else in Melbourne.

Outstanding hotel that never disappoints. I go there at least once a year, and I'm always impressed with the levels of service and overall quality of the hotel. It's location is perfect, given that it rests on the Yarra and is walking distance from the city and major sporting venues. The rooms aren't large, but are adequate. Room service is the only negative, and that's only due to the amount of time it takes for an order to reach your room. However, the quality of food is excellent, so the wait is almost always worth it. The rooms are somewhat expensive and, at times, over the odds. However, the overall accommodation experience is so good that you're happy to pay extra for the luxury.
