The Langham - Luxury hotel in London
The quite correctly self proclaimed 'Original Grand Luxury Hotel in London', the Langham imparts a unique piece of history as well as forward thinking designs on every one of its guests.
Located on the world famous Regent Street the Langham Hotel has been a home from home for Royalty, Celebrities and Dignitaries ever since it became London's first Grand luxury hotel in 1865. The hotel provides a real sense of occasion and purpose - it is steeped in so much history that it is even possible to stay in a suite that was once frequented by Napoeleon Bonaparte in the 19th century. Unfortunately for Napoeleon, the 21st century spa and swimming pool were not open at the time. Nevertheless, if the hotels enchanting grand Victoriana architecture and enduring history doesn't seduce guests, then the world’s number one voted bar in 2012, Artesian, on the hotels ground floor, certainly will
The Langham luxury hotel has plenty of amenities, and every one of them boasts a handful of accolades. The Artesian has been recently crowned the world’s best bar, whilst in 2011 the Chaun spa was announced the best in Europe. The Palm Court has been serving tea for over 140 years and lastly Roux at the Landau recently hosted the Mastechef final.
Roux at the Landau
Michel Roux Junior has developed a culinary heaven at the Langham with his classically constructed French restaurant. It is one of London's most famous and regularly hosts cook competition finals such as Masterchef.
The Artesian bar can officially lay claim to be the 'World’s best bar' having being voted it by Drinks international in 2012. The bar specialises in rum based cocktails and there are over 100 to try. Despite the sheer number, the Artesian won’t be found lacking in attention to detail, even the ice cubes have a special formula to keep them cooler for longer.
Right in the heart of the hotel the Palm court that has served afternoon teas to the gracious tune of a divine grand piano for over 140 years – longer than any other hotel in London.

The lower ground floor houses the wonderfully juxtaposed ultra modern Chuan spa along with its mood lit 17metre swimming pool. It is the first Chuan spa located in Europe - developed on the principals of ancient Chinese medicine.

Bluebird's Favourite Feature:
Our concierge service would find it difficult not to mention 'The World’s Best Bar,' as voted for by drinks international, in this space. Victoriana meets cutting edge in a design conjured up by David Collins, also responsible for designing the Berkeley Hotels Blue Bar. It truly offers a unique vibe within its high ceilings and marbled walls. The show piece cocktails are delivered from pagoda carved bar to the snake’s kin effect seats with faultless service.
