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 had two night stay here recently and it was pleasant. The check in process was a bit slow as we requested connecting rooms. However, it was fine as we had our wine and snacks while we were waiting so couldn't complain there. Yoyo was very helpful, printed out restaurants information as well as made reservations for us. We celebrate 2 x 40th birthdays on this trip and even though one couldn't make it, they gave us two bday cakes for each room plus wines delivered to the room. The room was decorated with buntings and petals on one of the beds. It was a really lovely gesture from the hotel. I think the decoration must have slowed down our check in time a little bit.
We were given different information between concierge and the club lounge about the MTR card but that could be just a language barrier. The service was lovely and staff was very attentive. Buffet breakfast had a good selection. I didn't use the pool/gym/spa so couldn't comment on the facilities here.
If I could fault something, it would be the bedding. It was not as soft and fluffy as what you would normally get at 5star hotel. As we just stayed at the Four Season in Macau two nights before, we could notice the difference right the way.
Overall it was a very pleasant experience. I highly recommend the hotel for its central location and the benefits that the club level offers.
The familiar but beautiful fragrance on arrival and the arrival and checking-in experience was again, excellent at the Langham HK. The location is fantastic with all transport services accessible very nearby, including great food and shopping venues later in the evening for some respite during a busy work trip. Its one of my favorite hotels in the world and my 'go to' when in HK.
We decided on a last minute weekend getaway to Shenzhen to explore some of the local electronic shops and get some mainland food! We had a hard time leaving the hotel because of its complete Awesomeness! This place knows how to treat customers, with a great property, amazing food, perfect service staff from the GM to the room service everyone made sure we had the best stay ( I contemplated calling gin sick so I could be pampered for one more day).
The Club is over and above with it service and funky Art Deco era design with a touch of Chairman Mao.
Amazing short stay in Hong Kong after a business trip in Europe. Staff at front desk were extremely accommodating, very helpful, thoughtful but at the same time non-intrusive. High quality in-room dining service, concierge desk and all of this coupled with excellent location, make this the best hotel I've stayed in, in HK, and will definitely use on my next trip. Highly recommended!
I had the pleasure of checking in to the Langham Hotel on my Birthday back in March. Our family did a Spring Break trip to Hong Kong and Dongguan China. The Langham staff was extremely helpful and kind. We were greeted by Carmela when we arrived. Not only did she check us in, but she was sweet enough to present me with a Birthday gift while we were dining at the hotel restaurant. It was such a thoughtful gesture. I was deeply touched. The rooms were beautiful and a very nice size. The Langham is a great location and close to nearby attractions. The staff a the hotel restaurant provided great service and the food was delicious. We plan to visit Hong Kong again and will definitely stay at the Langham.
