My wife & I spent 3 wonderful nights in Langham Hotel, from Apr 6 to 9, 2012. Our room, #942, did not have any great view outside the window but the interior was just superb. Room was very clean & very spacious. So was the bathroom within, with separate shower and bath. Oh, the big bed, big pillows (not too soft or too hard) & everything else within were just truly wonderful. They made us slept very well every night which was very important for us as we walked a lot in the day and in the early evening.
The turndown service was very well carried out. Every evening someone would place on each bedside table a small pink "Good Night" box of chocolate with a card giving the weather forecast for the following day. This was a nice little gesture and we were really touched. (I'm just wondering, are only 5-star hotels doing this ? We had this same pleasant experience in Hilton Tokyo.)
The location of the Langham Hotel HK is very good. 2 mins' walk out of the hotel you will face the big and swanky Harbour City which has lots and lots of upmarket shops displaying well known brands of bags, apparel, watches, shoes, etc, etc. Restaurants, cafes and food courts can also be found within. And there are resting places where tired shoppers can sit down and enjoy the sea views, without the need to pay for drinks or food. Harbour City is really the place where you can shop till you drop literally, ie if you are into shopping for branded goods.
Right next to Harbour City is the China HongKong City, another big shopping mall. The Ferry Terminal for folks going to Macau is housed within this building. Ferries run at 30 mins' interval and it takes an hour to reach Macau (tip: buy tickets to Macau from touts just outside the ticket booths - they are cheaper. Not sure how they do it).
Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station is within 5 mins' walk from the hotel. From this station, you can visit many places in Hong Kong island, in Kowloon and the airport. Places of interest, such as the Avenue of Stars, HK Space Museum, HK Cultural Centre, etc, are also within walking distance.
In short, staying in Langham Hotel is certainly a very good choice - hotel staff are efficient, professional, very helpful and caring. It has wonderful room (at least for us in room #942), great services and the right location. And by the way, it has free wifi.
