I had great expectation from pictures and descriptions of luxurious boutique home stay. LOUIS and the philipino housekeeper were helpful, but the rooms needed a face lift. They put me in "royal elephant" first, but no shower cape provided, with a broken hand held shower, I couldn't use the ceiling shower without wetting my hair in mid night. In that... More

Enjoyed my stay in this family home. I like the antiques mixed with some of the family items-- making it rather homely, although the house has very high ceilings. The Chinese Lanterns hanging with modern touches of long tassels added a unique flare to a quiet neighbourhood. Every morning, we had a good walk through the Botanical Gardens near the... More

I disagree with EddieFP. Clearly he did not walk around and explore the area. About 2 blocks away there is an amazing Italian restaurant. Another block around the corner and you can find a whole neighborhood of restaurants and shops. When one travels, one has to be prepared to explore the area on foot! Wear comfortable shoes!

Just before our stay at the L Residence we read the previous review and were a bit concerned by the comments. When we arrived we were not expected although we had booked in advance. We also were the only guests there. However the young housekeeper welcomed us and showed us to our large, pleasant room but as mentioned previously, it... More

We initially booked a room in L Residence for 3 nights, but only stayed 1 night. This is mainly due to the location and because we felt that the owner, Louis, lied to us in his email correspondence. He wrote that there are ‘’convenient 24 hours local eateries nearby’’ and made it seem as if public transportation was not an... More

A grand house with lovely decoration. The family history and pictures are very interesting. The house is set in a peaceful wart holy neighborhood, and only short walks to different attractions. In the morning, after their delicious breakfast with eggs (they ask how you like them) toast jam and hot coffee or tea, I took a walk to Botanical Gardens... More

What a wonderful surprise to find beautiful antiques and artwork in this home. I enjoy history and reading some of the history on the wall and old photographs of the family members added interest to my visit to Singapore. The room had their own attached shower and toilet which made it very convenient. The place was kept very tidy and... More

It is located near Botanical Gsrdens and the City. Everything is a walk away. The room has all the homely comforts in a house with interesting family history. It is good for folks who want their space.
