In an urban center as tightly packed as Hong Kong, the Langham is a welcome hideaway, with elegant rooms in light colors and top-notch air conditioning to battle the city’s year-round heat. Even though the hotel has nearly 500 rooms, it never feels overcrowded—rather, the service is calm, prompt, and comes with lots of personalized attention (if you’ve already checked out but have a late flight, they’ll offer to let you take a shower). Rooms, while not enormous, are comfortable and come with thoughtful touches like adaptors to charge your devices. Don’t miss the T’ang Court experience—it’s one of the few Cantonese restaurants in the world to earn a Michelin star and it’s worth every penny. The Bostonian, meanwhile, is a quality seafood and grill spot with a craft beer bar (and a private champagne room if that’s more your scene).
In the Area
The abundance of shopping, eating, and entertainment offerings just steps from the hotel in the bustling Tsim Sha Tsui district might conspire to keep you on this (the Kowloon) side of the harbor. Victoria Harbor itself is just a two-minute walk; you can take ferries to Hong Kong Island from here. Or hop on the MTR (metro) at Tsim Sha Tsui station, just a few blocks away. The Hong Kong Space Museum is a treat for kids and adults: the planetarium has an Omnimax theater and shows documentaries, too (English audio-phones are provided). You can walk to Kowloon Park—a lifesaver if you’re traveling with children who need to expend a little energy—in less than ten minutes; it’s a verdant spot with an aviary, a lake, and a playground. For a beloved local treat, stroll north on Nathan Road to Yee Shun Milk Company, a small spot with fabulous dairy-based snacks (try the steamed milk with ginger or the steamed milk pudding).
How to Get There
We loved The Langham , Hong Kong and if we revisit Hong Kong we will definitely stay again !
The moment we entered our suite , we knew that our four night stay was going to be extraordinary.
The suite was exquisite , we were welcomed with a lovely surprise of champagne, chocolates , anniversary card and a gorgeous Langham teddy bear which sits pride of place on our bed!
So glad we chose Club Level , the service , food and ambience were exceptional. The staff were amazing as were all staff throughout the hotel.
The concierge desk were most helpful in organising tours, giving directions and did exceptionally well retrieving my reading glasses which were left in a taxi.
We also loved the locality , Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon which was a short walk away from the harbour . In fact , the first night we strolled around taking in the vibe of Hong Kong and the breathtaking harbour view.
Thank you so very much!
We book a staycation at the Langham every year to celebrate our anniversary and this year was brilliant again! We book a club room so that we can fully relax and switch off from the outside world. Avoiding the main lobby, we head straight up to the 11th floor to check in. While enjoying a cold drink on the sofa the check in process is completed by the super efficient and friendly staff.
Having access to the lounge is a real treat. Afternoon tea, pre dinner drinks and canapes and of course breakfast are offered and there are always small snacks available throughout the day (crisps and fruit).
Our room was spotless and looking fresh and new. We had a lovely surprise and note from the hotel staff wishing us a happy anniversary which made us fee very special.
We will be back again next year!
I booked two rooms at the Langham to celebrate my Son & Wife's birthday. My wife's family always stays at Marco Polo, but positive reviews online led me to believe that the Langham is the superior choice.
We were welcomed in the hotel by April, and she led us to the lounge for a VIP check-in. She was very accommodating, and answered all our questions with regard to dining choices nearby.
The rooms are nice, although a bit "dated".
However, we had a very unpleasant experience, as our luggage were not delivered to the room, until my wife made several calls to the front desk. And it was only 4 hours later that our luggage was delivered.
I was quite impolite to the duty manager, as it stressed my family. And she tried to make arrangements for free breakfast, but I was in no mood to be appeased, and refused all offers.
It was my idea to book my family in the Langham, so I also felt embarrassed about the situation.
The next day, however, it appeared as though the Langham WILL NOT give up without a fight --- as they seemed to make compounded efforts to win us back, and live up to their "promise of a legendary and personalized service".
Immediately the next day, the duty manager approached me, and asked about our plans the next days later. I had intended to arrange a van to Hongkong Disneyland Hotel as we planned to stay after our brief stay at the Langham.
He made several recommendations, and gave us some information about the condition in Disney, the protest/assembly situation, among other things. He even suggested that we take a LATE CHECKOUT of 2:00pm since the Disney hotel will only accommodate us at 3:00pm.
They also arranged Happy Birthday hearts on our bed, and left a Teddybear, and chocolate for my wife and son.
Nothing could have pleased me more than for me wife and son to be as happy as they were, and feel special on their birthdays.
Surprisingly, they made our van trip to Disney complimentary. This really made my wife, and in-laws feel extra special.
And I am extremely happy to say that they will only stay at The Langham on our next visit to Hongkong.
Special thanks to the duty manager, April, and the staff of Langham for making the small arrangements for my wife and son. And I apologize for the anger I expressed.
We will see you again, and next time we will be booking a bigger room!
