Lanson Place Hotel
Travel Blogs from Hong Kong
The most anticipated day of the trip has arrived! We headed out to Sai Kung this morning and spent the whole day out at sea.
The sun was shining bright, the waves were gentle, the water was clear, the food was glorious, the alcohol.... was too much.

JJ got in last night, and this drunk hen was too drunk to function, she slammed herself onto the glass door whilst J was in the shower.
Anyhoo, waking up hungover, well technically, waking up still drunk, was fun. Hardly remembering the things I said and did, we apparently had breakfast, and then we took a cab that could fit all 5 of us to …
Making a detour to deliver 2 boxes of Pandan Cake to Central, where Nana's colleagues are at, we got caught in traffic and we were starving and grumpy. When we finally got to the hotel, which was very pretty, we ditched the bags and headed right out for food.
Then we did the next best thing, shopping. Although, we were pretty much stuck in …
Caught the MTR (subway) and then a fast ferry to Macau. We had to clear immigration which meant more queues and more stamps in our passports. Macau is a lovely city with huge casinos and skyscrapers everywhere, but a fascinating old town with very obvious Portuguese influence. We walked for miles following a walking tour download from the internet …
We decided to start with an open top bus tour of the city to get our bearings. They travel around Hong Kong Island and then you catch the Star Ferry across to Kowloon for a tour there. The first stop was Victoria Peak for the incredibly steep tram ride up the hill. Absolutely amazing views over the city, despite the hazy conditions. The Peak tram …

Historical Traveler Reviews Lanson Place Hotel Hong Kong
Snagged a decent deal via RatesToGo.com during trade fair period that cost SGD210 for its standard room, and the experience was worth every single dollar. Loved the facade of the building, which resembled the front of an English colonial building- its sophisication definitely made it stand out when placed against JIA (another boutique hotel right next to it). The concierge was impeccable, the receptionists were professional and well groomed, albeit a little aloof. Loved the hotel's decor, from the lobby right up to the room. Really liked how the shower stall resembled a glass capsule and the rain shower was a bonus. A caveat though- the transparent bathroom may make it a little uncomfortable for friends bunking together, though I can imagine honeymooners thoroughly digging the extra intimacy it lends. Will absolutely recommend the hotel, given the price I paid!
Needed a hotel at the last minute and found the lanson through wotif dot com. Couldnt be happier about the choice. Greeted with a smile at the door with friendlness by the concierge team bags arranged and ushered up to reception which is on the 1st floor. Reception is sit down with one of the reception staff checking you in, very professional.
I stayed in this hotel for just one night as I had extended my stay in Hong Kong at the last minute and wanted to try a hotel on Hong Kong island itself (usually I stay at Kowloon side).
We stayed here early in November to attend a trade fair at the Exhibition Centre . We chose the hotel because it offered good rates and was recommended by the HKTDC. I also prefer to stay in Causwaybay. The position of the hotel was excellent- really near all the shops and only a HK$30 taxi ride to the Expo. There is no restaurant in the hotel but a huge selection of every food- style a short walk from the hotel The concierge staff were so helpful and helped us make a booking at an Indian restaurant, which was our choice that night. All the staff were really helpful and nothing was too much trouble for them. We upgraded one level in quality and were glad we did as the room would have been too small for two otherwise. The bed was very comfortable and a request for firmer pillows was instantly responded to. Very efficient wireless and cable broadband was free. The bathroom is beautiful and the shower wonderful but no privacy as the walls were all glass. A small kitcenette area with microwave and sink meant heating up food was easy. Fresh bottled water was delivered every day. A buffet continental breakfast included and served in the lounge was very good though perhaps a little uncomfortable eating in the low chairs. A free library of DVDs to play on the DVD in your room. A flat screen TV was on the wall above the desk so one working on a laptop and one wanting to watch TV was difficult. The wardrobe configuration made it difficult to get things in and out of it. The clean, modern rooms were serviced daily and everything worked well. On the whole the stay was excellent and I will certainly stay here again if I can get a good rate.
Chic, modern property
The hotel was booked by my husband's company and initially we were disappointed that we were not staying at one of the larger well-known hotels in HK but once we checked in and saw the room, we were Lanson Place converts! For HK, the rooms were a good size and also extremely clean. The furniture and finishings were all modern, tasteful and a cut above many five star establishments that we've stayed in. I'm sure it helped the hotel is very new so everything seemed to be immaculate. Location was also good, close to MRT and shopping. I did find the airconditioning a bit on the cold side but we preferred that to not having it work. Altogether we had a wonderful stay and would definitely choose the hotel again.
We have stayed at Lanson Place in Singapore for about 2 month, and after having great experience there decided to stay at Lanson in Hong Kong .
Also for small families
We were looking for a big room, due to we were two adults and two children.
We booked a room at the Lanson when we arrived at the airport.
The room was big enough for 4 people and very clean, and the price was arround 150 euros per night, breakfast included.
There are some places to eat near the hotel. Also you can walk and discover Causeway Bay.
So, we recommended the Lanson, also for small families.
Clean and new. Nice location. Friendly staff. Good view. Cool library and 1 floor toilet.//Slow housekeeping service. So-so breakfast. Air-conditioning too strong.
Enjoyed the Lanson
I stayed at the Lanson as a last minute stay and found the hotel a nice place to stay. The room was larger than most I have stayed in Hong Kong and was very comfortable. It has cooking facilities so was easy to order takeaway food and heat up at a later stage. Breakfast was basic but sufficient. The staff were friendly and attentive. You will need to go out for meals as there is no restaurant however there are plenty of places nearby to eat so this was not a problem.
Would definately recommend the Lanson.
Lanson Place is a new serviced apartment in Causeway Bay. It's on the same block as Jia, right near the back entrance from Lee Gardens Two, and across the street from the Indonesian Embassy. It is kind of confusing to get to so I suggest printing the map (in Cantonese) if you take a cab.
