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
Stayed for New Year.
Lovely hotel in great location (especially if you like top brand flagship stores).
Staff are faultlessly friendly and helpful.
Not very close to MTR.
Not much activity late in evening.
If you are looking for a genuinely comfortable gracious hotel in Hong Kong the Langham should be on your must consider list.
Chose this hotel having stayed at the Langham in London, and I was not disappointed. The service was exceptional, starting with the Concierge who willingly gave guidance on sightseeing before and during our visit, and arranged our transfer from the Kai Tak cruise terminal. The warm welcome at the hotel with rose for my wife at Reception made us feel good, and then being accompanied to our luxurious room by the Reception person was nice touch. The swimming pool at the 15 level was a relaxing retreat, and the Cantonese and Bostonian restaurants offered exceptional meals. The hotel is ideally located close to the shops and Star Ferry terminal for crossing to Hong Kong Island.Our thanks for a memorable stay, we will be back!.
I was attending my company's annual business retreat from 30-Jan-2019 to 1-Feb-2019. We had a group booking of around 65 rooms with negotiated prices; about which I have no clue. When you step into the Langham, what strikes you first are the big chandeliers, art decos, traditional furniture and lots of service guys to help you. Considering this is a 5-star premium hotel, you can argue; its expected to be like that. The Breakfast, lunches and the dinner had perfect combination of cuisines and were impeccably cooked to perfection.
What might set it apart, is the way you are being welcomed starting from the check-in process to when you enter your room, where a personalized message awaits you on their big TV screen. It makes you feel; you own this room for the duration of your stay. When you call operators/housekeeping from the room landline, they welcome you by your name. Personalization is what I am talking about here. The size of the room, the quality of bed, bathroom, toiletries, wardrobe and the furniture - you cannot find a damn fault.
One thing needs mentioning - when I was about to leave, I wanted to take the Airport Shuttle and the services guys - a young girl and a guy took extra care in drawing me the spot, how to reach there and explained me like 5 times. Thanks for their patience to tolerate my ignorance.
Everything is within 100 meters radius - restaurants, bars, mall, Tsim Tsa Tsui MTR, 7/11, Chunking Mansions, the waterfront and what not.
So, my question is - how much would you be willing to pay for the grandiose stay here having an opulent lifestyle for few days right in the heart of Hong Kong? I leave this to you to think over. Reminds me of the Mastercard Ad - "“There are some things money can't buy. For everything else, there's MasterCard.”".
As my CEO said in his opening speech - "Guys, what a hotel? Huh"

We were lucky to have stayed in a suite at The Langham. This is a great hotel in an amazing location with welcoming professional staff. We had a couple of niggles (room not available until 16 45 hrs, although they did give us another to sleep in as we were exhausted after our flight) but,worst of all, we were told the roof top pool and outdoor space was closed for refurbishment when it actually wasn't. Suite rooms give you access to eleventh floor hospitality which is wonderful, calm breakfasts, afternoon tea and pre dinner drinks and canapes should you wish.
The lobby is very very busy. More seats are needed for guests awaiting departure. We would happily stay here again. The staff are lovely, well drilled and welcoming. Thank you.
