Star rating:
5 star hotel

4.4

It’s smart, it’s central, and yes, it’s The Langham.

Sister hotel to the Langham Place in Mong Kok, The Langham combines a fair bit of grandeur with smart service. Staying here, I’ve always enjoyed its feeling of being at the heart of things, yet relative seclusion and rather grand air.

Location

In the middle of what the hotel has dubbed “Hong Kong’s Rodeo Drive”. Hyperbole aside, there’s plenty of shopping on the doorstep, or you can tuck your credit card away and set out to sightsee.

 

Bedrooms

Even in the accommodation’s lower tiers (“Classic”) there are well upholstered sofas, rich fabrics and thick carpets. Plus internet protocol phones and flatscreen TVs. The Langham Club (renovated in 2010) is one of the rare breed that exceeds the promise of being a “hotel within a hotel”.

 

Public areas

A hushed and marbled lobby (with gorgeous flower arrangements) provides welcome sanctuary from the streets outside.

 

Eating and drinking

Naturally T’ang Court is super pleased about its double Michelin star. But there are other culinary delights here, of which The Bostonian’s seafood and steak gets a special and personal thumbs up.

 

Leisure facilities

The pool and fitness centre are not overly large, but perfectly serviceable.

 

Service

The Langham’s cultivated owner is renowned for his gentlemanly demeanour, which seems to have been passed on to the staff.

 

Who stays there

A cosmopolitan crowd. Sometimes I’ve been in here and it’s all (distinctly) North Americans, at other times scurrying executives and their BlackBerrys, and on occasion fairly senior citizens revelling in the fine food and drink.

 

Price advice

Discounts are often on offer for stays of four nights or more.
