Lovely stay!from A TripAdvisor Member
We were treated extremly well although we are both students and had booked the cheap internet rate
A non smoking standard room on the 8th floor (room 813). The room was great; clean and in proper condition with a nice view towards a small park. The bathroom was also in great condition with bathrobe, slippers and a scale.
We also used the pool and jacuzzi (charge 7 pounds/each) which were great. We had the jacuzzi and the pool all by ourselves! In the changing rooms there were a sauna and a steam room and Elisabeth Arden toilettries were available for free. The gym looked nice as well, I regret I didn´t bring my gym clothes.
The only negative thing was that breakfast was not included in our deal. But we did have breakfast one morning at the Memories restaurant. The buffé was top class, but it also cost a fortune 23 pounds/person! Traditional hot meals as scrabbled eggs, grilled tomatoes, beans etc, a large selection of freshly baked bread, different kinds of yoghurts, cheese (feta, ricotta, cheddar, philadelfia, low fat, etc), ham, fish (salmon, herring etc) and last but not least - fresh fruit (strawberries, pineapple, melon etc). Freshly squezzed juice.
The location were also terrific, just 3 minutes walk down to Oxford Circus and a bus stop just 2 minutes from the hotel. We usually stay in Baywater but this area was much more convinient, since you could walk to almost everything. You also get to see a more true side of London when not living in the traditional tourist quarters which was great!
I would absolutly stay at The Langham Hotel when visting London again and I recommend you to do the same!

Good but overpricedfrom Tobes01
Great Hotel, wonderful locationfrom WorldTraveller10101
Great Hotel, Grand and traditionalfrom marksw
All staff have been friendly and respectful, a nice change for an expensive hotel, the door men are partial to nice cars so if you drive up in something nice be prepared for some questioning and veiwings. it's all in good intention though.
Great bars, as with all hotels in london you do pay a premium, but none the less it's a great atmosphere. room service is quick and the food is good quality, breakfast is hugly over priced, go and join the que in the starbucks around the corner with the rest of the guests and half of the BBC for a coffe and a cake!
Nice short walk to all of the main toursit shopping destinations, taxi's are plentiful if you're not one for the walking!
Finding the gym can be a bit of a joke.. it's a very good health club, the best bet is to head out of the hotel, take a right and follow the path around until you come to the public entrance of the club, it will save you at least 10 minutes each time of wondering the hallways!!
For those of you staying in late October.. it's documented to be one of THE most haunted hotels in England... i took advantage of this on a haloween stay in a rather cruel manner, by frightening the life out of my girlfriend.. followed by a day's silence!!! lesson learned!
Solid performance, Concierge Club room luxuryfrom EuroTravellerPG
The "concirege club" is essentially a separate hotel within the main hotel and offers plush room decor and a lounge room where complementary breakfast and daytime nibbles are served.
Studying the geography of the hotel showed that the concierge club rooms are an annex of the main hotel in a modern building at the rear, hence my room had no view whatsosver, despite being on the 5th of 8 floors. You essentially 'walk through' the Main hotel to get to the Concierge club which has its own separate check-in. The nights I stayed there, my room should have cost £330.
The room itself was spacious and well decorated with larger bathroom and upgraded toiletries. It was not such that I would have paid the £330 for it. Hence for the £130 extra, I received a free breakfast and an upgraded room
Room service was punctual, tasty and thorough. my laundry was efficiently handled.
The Concierge did get me a restaurant booking at a local restaurant and seemed to know the good places.
I used the Gym and pool (at a cost of £7 extra) which I found to be well equipped. Massage and beauty treatments were availavle and looked reasonably priced.
I note also that the Langham has a favourable Frequent stayer programme that rewards you with upgrades and additional features after 3 visits (Late checkout and water/wine in your room on arrival).
Conclusion, I'd stay there again so as to get the frequent stayer benefit but would not pay £130 extra for the Concierge room which is aimed at expense account execs. I though that complementary use of the gym might have been included with the Concierge room as having to fork out another £7 when paying £330 is a tad rich. I'd take my chances on the lowest rate in the hope of an upgrade.
Top Local Tips for London
Bateaux Thames River trip Do it really very special, but not if your into raves, perhaps for the middle aged & older ones! Leave your coat in the cloakroom which is not on the boat! Do not accept a table in the other end away from the band unless you do not want to join in with the party atmosphere.
Taxis Taxis will cost you about 50 pounds from Heathrow and more from Gatewick. They are nice cabs and the drivers are also, but that is expensive in American money. (Around $100.00), so if you have been before try the train.
Heathrow Express If arriving at Heathrow and travelling into London, this is the best way to travel between the airport and London.
