Langham Place hotel & shopping center

Langham Place is a mall and hotel complex in Mongkok with restaurants, shops, and a movie theatre. One distinctive of the mall is probably the number of small shops with an interesting variety of goods.

Situated among all the older residential and commercial buildings in Mongkok, Langham Place stands out like a crane among chickens, as a Chinese proverb goes. It's clearly visible from miles away - even from across the Victoria Harbor at certain spots.

Langham Place hotel is the only 5-star hotel in the heart of Mongkok. Left: Langham Place in Mongkok with its 9-meter high sculpture by American sculptor Larry Bell.

The mall has 15 levels of shops and restaurants. Some floors are more dedicated to certain categories of products. The lower floors above the basement levels tend to be designer label and name brand stores. There's a cluster of restaurants on level 4. According to their official website:
  • L13 - restaurants & bars
  • L8 - L12 - the spiral; smaller shops, wheel-friendly levels connected with ramps
  • L7 - sportswear
  • L2 - beauty
  • B1 - shoes & bags
  • B2 - supermarket, specialty food

Notable are the long escalators that take you directly from a lower floor to an upper floor, skipping a few levels, so that you can follow the 'Spiral' down.

Like in other malls, you can count on seasonal decorations at Langham Place. The winter wonderland scene inside at Christmas time drew a crowd posing for the shutters.



Langham Place is easily accessible by MTR. Just get to Mongkok station where the red and green lines intersect, and take exit C3: it leads you inside Langham Place itself.
