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
The Langham hotel in Kowloon is in walking distance to the MRT (entrance next door), Harbour City Mall (one block away) and the Ferry Terminals. The hotel itself is upper standard and has a delicious breakfast buffet. Personnel is very polite and the service excellent.
The service from all staff were excellent. Room was comfortable and very clean. The dining experience was great. I would recommend the hotel to all who visit Kowloon. Checking in was slightly delayed but I was pleased that they offered a complementary drink which made it not an issue for the slight delay.
I went to HK by myself for some shopping and booked here, as it appeared to be fairly central to the shopping areas. It was and also happened to have an MTR station across the road so it was a great base for HK,
The service is amazing - the staff are attentive without being intrusive.
I booked the Executive Lounge, which was really a lovely place to have a quiet breakfast with great choices from croissants through to yoghurt and the usual eggs, etc. There's always something local, like dumplings or steamed buns, which were always lovely. The lounge also did a great canapés and champagne - (or whatever else you wanted to drink) in the evenings as well as an afternoon tea with scones etc.
The gym is small but immaculately clean and has everything you need - the staff there are also very good and always greeted me with a smile - and towers (if using the pool) and bottle of water. The pool was great - a really perfect spot to unwind after a long day of shopping. There was also a small spa on the roof top and the change room (one each for women and men) had a small sauna which was great to work out the kinks. The change room was amazing - really clean and well set out - they even had a small spinning machine to dry out your bathers before you packed them up.
The room was well set out with a full bath and seperate shower which is always nice. There was always fresh ice put in the ice bucket and slippers placed next to the bed for the turn down service.
Can't fault the hotel (no views but it's not near the water) and would definitely stay again.
I have been a regular visitor to The Langham, Hong Kong since April 2011 and in all that time it has never fallen short of the standards expected of a luxury hotel. The warmth is the same no matter which member of staff greets you in any part of the hotel. The Club Lounge is outstanding and it provides the friendly relaxing environment needed after a day out in this energetic city. I'm hesitant to single out particular members of the club lounge staff, because everyone there provides the level of friendliness and service which makes the lounge something special in this hotel. However, a mention must go to Brian and Kelly who always provide an exceptional and very much personal service. Ok, let's not leave out Yo Yo, Jenny, Samuel, Tshany, Christy and Nicole who all make my stay so enjoyable. Are you reading this Mr Ma and Cressty? You have an amazing team in the Club Lounge. Sadly, Joyce has left to work in the reception area where she provides the same warm welcome as ever. Do I recommend The Langham, Hong Kong? Yes, I wholeheartedly do!! And I will be back in December.
We arrived off a cruise too early for our rooms to be ready, but we wanted to drop off our luggage. After checking in, we were brought to the waiting area and offered soft drinks, rest rooms and even the gym and shower if we wanted it. Everyone at the hotel was extremely nice and very helpful.
