When my good friend Jason in prague phoned me and offered to pay for me to meet him in London for a weekend at a very posh old hotel, I didn't take long to think about it! Jason was doing some business at the langham, London's oldest five star hotel, located just off Oxford Circus, and planned to stay the weekend for alittle R&R, which is …

Friday I went into the city to drop off some paper work for my tax file number, and had lunch at a cool French cafe called Pain de Mie. The cafe is located on New Oxford Street (it's at the very start of Oxford street) and it had only been open for a couple of months. They owners were French. I was drawn in by the sweet lunch time deal 5 pounds for a gourmet sanga ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Langham, London
Wonderful public areas, disappointing room
OK first the positives. The Langaham has wonderful public areas, large, impressive. It is a very big hotel, and we stayed in a superior twin room. It was exactly like the picture on langhams website except the room wasn't spacious (the beds overhang over the exit) and the bathroom left lots to be desired (there was missing grouting/bacteria residue on the grouting/stained towels). The view was good (overlooking west London).
For 5* ambience try the Milestone in Kensington, far superior, far nicer, far cleaner.
A great hotel
I stayed at this hotel by luck..I got it on Priceline when it was the Langham Hilton..it's no longer a Hilton but it was fantastic!! It's a "Leading Hotel of the World" and very luxurious!! I only paid $140 a nite, a true bargain!! The rooms were large with a great bathroom with robes!! Breakfast was expensive...$50 for a full English..go to Ponti's around the corner which serves eggs and GREAT orange juice! The Oxford circus tube stop is only about 7 minutes away!! I would go back in a heartbeat!!
Very centrally located right off Regent st. and Oxford station. The over 7 ft. doorman was very helpful in providing directions to nearby main-streets in case you're not familiar with the area. The staff are generally friendly, but can't say much for the rooms. I requested a street-view room, and was paying around US$250/night, but even after switching, still could only get a view of the very grim-looking windows and walls of the hotel. The view was depressing. I agree with comments on the smokey lobby, but what intriqued me more were 1) why do the elevators look like those you'd see in MAN FROM UNCLE (where they make you feel like the sides will come together to turn you into meatloaf)? They are so narrow! Secondly, I challenge any one to try to find the Fitness center via inside the building. Try following the signs in the hotel and you'll feel like you've walked into an Escher painting... I almost thought the evil twins from THE SHINING were going to come and ask me "to play." The fitness center, as it turns out, is more accessible and easily found if you leave the building and enter from the outside. It is a very nice hotel gym, and the indoor pool is also very nice, albeit narrow. The restaurant is pricey, but the food and service is very nice. My suggestion is to book ahead and try to get a deal under US$150/night. Otherwise, I suggest booking the Charlotte Street hotel (about 3 blocks away).
My mother, my 2 year old son and I stayed here for 7 days in March 2003 using Hilton Honors frequent flyer miles. Very nice hotel, perfect location if you are a walker (we are) and you like shopping (we do). 5 minute walk to Oxford Circus tube station and the intersection of Regent's and Oxford streets. Plenty of restaurants, shops, department store, a nice sized Tesco in the area...and a 15 minute walk to Regent's Park.
As we are Langham, when we arrived in London, we deceided to find the Langham, we walked for miles,but found it in time for High Tea. The man playing the piano was great, he even played Australian songs.There was My daughter, her husband and my husband, The 4 of us still tell everyone about it. Robyn Langham.
Not So Bad!
This is a very nice hotel with a friendly staff. The location is a little removed from public transportation, but it is a pleasant walk.
My room was booked at a discount but it was quite nice. I did have problems with housekeeping not servicing the room on three of my six days there. (They did after I called them.) My question for this hotel is: Why do you allow smoking in the public areas? Entering the hotel or leaving the elevator, one is assaulted by the strong fumes. At least the lobbly should be smoke-free so one can savor the elegant feel of the hotel upon entering and yet breathe at the same time.
The Langham Hilton
Stayed there for two days.Great location, great service.
The Langham Hilton Hotel in London is a great hotel. I've stayed there twice within the last 16 months and found every aspect of the hotel to be fantastic.An excellent staff, especially the doorman. The hotel bar is excellent, the hotel food is exceptional. Although the rooms are a bit on the small side, afterall this is downtown London.This is a great hotel with an excellent staff, a perfect location, and a delight to use while vacationing or traveling.I totally recommend this hotel. It certainly adds to the London experience.
Stayed here for 5 nights from 1 Jan 2003. Very nice and elegant hotel, perfectly located near (3 minutes walk) from the Oxford Street & Regent Street junction. Knowing London very well I think there are not many hotels if the main action is shopping!! Oxford Circus Undergound station is on the same junction with outstanding connection to anywhere in London.
