The Langham Hotel Hong Kong | Kowloon, Tsimshatsui, Hong Kong | The Langham Hong Kong, was my first stay ever at this amazing destination that completely blew me away. And I have to say that for the time I stayed with them, I truly felt I was at home. The services, their staff and the overall experience, made me feel so comfortable and welcome that I would definitely come over again. Located in the area of Tsimshatsui at Kowloon Island, liveliest and most popular area of the city with an outstanding choice of shopping and entertainment. Only meters away from the waterfront, The Peninsula Hotel. Also very conveniently located to subways, shopping areas and one of my favorites the Fish/Flower/Jade/Birds Markets, which will transport you back in time to the old times of Hong Kong.

Does The Langham Hong Kong have the breathtaking views of the Hong Kong peninsula, as The Ritz-Carlton or The Peninsula Hotel or many others on the Central Island… no they don’t, but The Langham is distinguished among the hotels in Hong Kong because of the meticulous attention that goes into ensuring your accommodation is absolutely delightful. Preeminent among local hotels,with a refined European-style, with gracious charm and polished five star luxury, claiming, so they say, the legendary heritage of the original grand hotel.

One of my favorites areas of the hotel, where I spend quite a few hours doing research, socializing and I must admit drinking/eating is the The Langham Club. Having recently undergone an impressive refurbishment The Langham Club is fast becoming the residence of choice for those in the know. Innovatively designed, with a rich European style, The Langham Club is an enchanting haven that leaves guests with a unique, lasting impression of the very best luxury has to offer.Located on the 11th floor, The Langham Club is open from 6:30 am to 11:00 pm daily, serving breakfast, afternoon tea, evening cocktails and canapés.
What a great spot to start your day, rest in between or have your first round of drinks before hitting the night scene of this captivating city. Suite guests have complimentary access to The Langham Club. I wonder if after my visit there is still any more Rose Champagne left. HA. !!!

The Langham also has its own Les Clefs d’Or Concierge, and trust me, what better way to discover a new city than by the expert advice of a Les Clefs d’Or Concierge. Full compliments to Edward Ma, who made the whole difference to my visit. Not to mention the Limo he had me waiting at the lobby of the hotel for my transfers. Thank You.!
Unfortunately I did not have much time to enjoy the restaurants at the hotel. So many options in such a short visit, and I really wanted to check some of the restaurants around the island. But the local tradition by those living in Hong Kong, is to eat at the restaurants in the Hotel, so many that was poor planing from my side, since in the end I learnt that the best restaurants were within the same hotels. The Langham hosts 5 restaurants: L’Eclipse fueled by culinary creativity and an inspiring modern approach. Here, Chinese, Asian and Western fare is deftly prepared with generous helpings of flair and drama. T‘ang Court two Michelin Stars restaurant – T’ang Court reflects the classic timelessness of the Tang Dynasty, China’s golden age. The Bostonian well-established American restaurant has long been a Hong Kong favourite. Main St. Deli in the true spirit of New York, Main St. Deli opened in April 2001 as Hong Kong’s first authentic New York style deli. Palm Court cosy meeting place is wonderful for discussing business or simply taking a break from the excitement of Tsimshatsui.
Time to leave unfortunately, but in style on the Limo courtesy of The Langham Hotel and Edward Ma. Thank you for a great stay. Carlos Melia Luxury Travel Curator – www.carlosmelia.com
