I absolutely love the Langham London (and the Langham Melbourne) so was excited to stay at the Langham Sydney on a recent trip to Australia. I booked the room ahead due to an early arrival time from the US so could have the room ready to recover and enjoy the city. However on arrival room was dated, much smaller than... More

A great place to stay when visiting Sydney for work or pleasure. A quick 10 min walk to the heart of Sydney. Fabulous service from staff. I wouldn't stay anywhere else. Rooms were beautiful. Nice location away from the crowds.

This is a superb hotel and excellent for business. It's easily accessible to CBD and suitable for all travellers seeking a sophisticated location with the unique charm of Sydney Harbour. Very very comfortble and well run and with a French accent.

We stayed in room 120 which was a king with harbor views. From the moment the valet opens your door and escorts you to the wonderfully scented reception area you are immediately impressed by the attention to detail. Our room was probably the prettiest I ever stayed in and the meal in the Remy restaurant downstairs was outstanding. Will definitely... More

Wonderful service. Great atmosphere. We will return as soon as we can. We loved our stay: We arrived as jet-lagged tourists and departed six days later as thoroughly rested travellers. Appreciatively.

I looked forward to coming back to the Langham every evening after work (I was travelling for work over a few weeks). I tried two other same tier hotels before settling on the Langham as the best stay in Sydney. Small personal touches like someone switching on the television and some low lighting before I got home every night, made... More

The Langham was always one of the hotels we aimed to stay at, at some point and this weekend we decided to do it. I think it is a little misrepresented by saying it has stunning harbour views, , though it does have a harbour view, perhaps just not the one people would be expecting on where this hotel faces....

Great location. Walked to the rocks daily. Great staff with very swift lifts (only 3 floors). Perfect location for new casino. Excellent Cafes and dining locations in the Rocks. Very accessible to circular Quay provided you are keen on walking.
