"Large hotel with excellent location, wifi not working"
The Langham benefits from a perfect location, just South of the Yarra river and just five minutes walk from Federation square. The view from our room was terrific and the room itself was perfect;y comfortable. My rating of the hotel is because the wi-fi never worked, in spite of multiple calls, multiple reboots... it kept on dropping and, when briefly connected, had extremely low download speeds, barely adequate to update a newspaper. I find that unacceptable in 2017.
Stayed in an executive room at the Langham prior to embarking on a cruise from Port Melbourne. This is a lovely hotel with 1st class customer service. We had access to the Langham club which I would highly recommend. Will definitely stay here again.
Have stayed in a few 5 star hotels in Melbourne, The Langham in the most central - right in the middle of Southbank. A 15 min walk to Bourke Street, Docklands, Botanic Gardens & Crown. Surrounded by great places to eat from cheap & cheerful - food courts, great casual dining with interesting food combinations to very fine dining. The Langham has a lovely feel, relaxed and proper - great bar, exquisite high teas and wonderful service. All the staff seem really happy & take the time to make you feel special. Highly recommend.
"Luxurious stay "
I stayed one night at the Langham mid week. It is in a great location - Southbank and just across the river from Flinders Street Station - very central. When I arrived at 730 am to drop my bags before booking in later that day a delightful and cheerful doorman whisked the bags away - they were waiting for me when i checked into the room later that day. I had a standard room and it is spacious. I did not feel cramped or like i was tripping over things. The decor is 'old world' style and it works. The sitting chair and foot stool is seriously comfortable. A great place to sit and sip a cool glass of something. The bed is very comfortable and the pillow choice on the bed easily met my needs. I was in room 1621 - the view was mostly into the next building - but as i just had the one night it didn't matter. The curtains are good and offer nice blocking of light and privacy. I enjoyed staying here and would recommend.
"Lunch at The Langham"
What an excellent lunch we devoured at The Langham. We had a very good view of the Yarra River whilst eating lunch. The Service was excellent and the food was superb. I have a sweet tooth so enjoyed the sweets very much.
