We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights based on their nice photos and good reviews they achieved. We love the swimming pool the most. The room comes with an affordable price, and nice decor. Our daughter was so excited to stay there, she said that she felt as if this hotel was our home. So that we decided to... More

The boutique hotel is located about 5 minutes walk from the bus stop and 3 bus stops away from Botanic Gardens MRT station. I was surprised that one had to remove shoes before entering the place. The pool area looked dark and a bit dusty to me. The ground floor was decorated with antiques and olden days pictures. The outdoor... More

I picked L Residence based on their nice pictures showed on the website, I was deeply attracted by its heritage decorations, nice swimming pool and the low density surroundings, as well as the very affordable price. I travelled with my 12-years old daughter, she loves its homely feeling and we stayed there 4 nights. Only 7 guest rooms, a big... More

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!

We were there to visit some friends, and was recommended to stay at L Residence. It was a wonderful place to stay. Its a home and the rooms are kept simple and clean. Our sheets were comfortable and we had 2 soft but firm pillows each. The toilets were kept clean and we have fresh towels. It was very convenient... More

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
