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
Partner & I stayed for 5 nights. Good impression from the start - porters assisted us with our luggage on arrival. Check-in was flawless: Orez, who checked us in was thorough and professional. Impeccable service throughout our stay. Staff were always courteous and cheerful. Concierge gave sound advice on what we were interested in. Kammy and Chris we found particularly knowledgeable.
Used the gym/sauna facilities almost every day. Staff at gym area were friendly and helpful. Men’s change room was spotless and modern with good facilities such as towels, body gel and toiletries.
We were pleased with our room. Bed was very comfortable. Adequate storage such as cupboards. Not much of a view outside our window, however, on the fifth floor. We used the kettle provided to make tea. The tea cups provided were rather small so we asked for mugs to be supplied instead.
Housekeeping did a good job cleaning the room each day. Housekeeping was extremely accommodating also,generous with items such as bottled water.
Overall, we enjoyed staying there and would consider staying there again on our next visit to Hong Kong.
We checked in for one night on the last day of our honeymoon. The hotel staff went the extra mile when decorating our room for our celebration. I would like to make a special thank you to Jonathan De Castro for the wonderful surprise and amazing service. I would most defiantly come back to The Langham and advise anyone looking to stay in Hong Kong to go nowhere else. The room was luxurious and immaculate the staff friendly and the breakfast spread was out of this world. Thank you The Langham Hong Long!
Perfect for honeymooners! The Langham went over and beyond to surprise us with chocolates, wine, and balloons for our honeymoon. Room was cleaned numerous times a day. Also, very strategic location! Its a 2-minute walk to the MRT station and just a hop away from Harbour City.
We was only there for one night , arrived later than scheduled, staff at check in check out was excellent.The room was quality especially the bed , highly recommended. We was there for a cruise from where we was being picked up from , smooth as it could be .
Hotel in centrally located in Kowloon only a few minutes walk to the ferry terminal and shops on both Canton and Nathan roads. Lots of choices nearby for eating and drinking. Several good choices for food and drinks also at The Langham. Staff are friendly and helpful. Looking forward to staying here again and having my favourite breakfast of eggs benedict with snow crab cakes.
