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
Nice hotel, nice decoration..I liked it here, the rooms were nice and spacious. Variety of food and amenities! Good location, friendly staff. Be sure to come again and recommend to friends that travel.
The staff at The Langham were incredibly kind and attentive, nothing was a problem and the concierge had brilliant suggestions for restaurants. Everything is beautiful, clean and elegant. You cannot help but feel glamorous whilst staying here. The Langham Club is also well worth it. I would definitely stay here again.
I stayed for my business trip and the staff were very attentive. The overall experience was really pleasant, even though there was some delay in delivering luggage when I checked in and the bathroom got some defect. It's the first time I saw a hotel manager even showed up to check if everything is okay, so I am really impressed.
From check in to details of hotel, there is nothing 5 stars. Bathrooms in rooms all have imperfection in construction. There are gaps in tiles and messy grout marks along edges of tub.
Concierge, omg..he must have connections or get commission from local businesses. I have asked him directions to 3 places I would like to go, he recommends other places to me all 3 times. His recommendations are not better not cheaper and not what I want. The management should be aware of his behaviour. I will not ask him for any assistance going fwd. This is not what a 5 stars hotel should do.
Great service from arrival to departure. Room was good-sized and comfortable. Staff were always ready to assist with luggage or any queries. Location was fantastic where we were able to drop our shopping off and rest before heading out again to continue our shopping and feasting.
