We needed a hotel at the last minute, having previously intended to stay with friends in Singapore. We were there with the kids, so four of us, and needed two rooms. All the hotels we found in Orchard Road area were very expensive, or fully booked. I found Lanson Place on Trip Advisor and didn't actually expect them to accept our booking as it was only 3 nights but they mustn't have been very full because they did. It was much cheaper than a hotel, had two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large lounge and very well equipped kitchen. The pool on the top is lovely, the gym is modern and well equipped and there is free wi fi in every room. No restaurant in the building but a supermarket only 5 mins walk away.

Excellent location and can't fault it, would definitely stay there again.

We recently stayed 2 weeks at Lanson Place with husband and 2 kids (aged 2&4) and was truly impressed. The location is excellent, 5 minutes walk to the heart of Orchard Rd, and also 5 minutes walk to Somerset MRT (and this is with a double pram and 2 kids). The staff were always helpful, friendly and attentive. The facilities were great - spotless swimming pool and spa on the 10th floor, internet access in their business centre and a nice court yard with seating and a fishpond. In the room, we had daily servicing, full laundry/dryer, full kitchen/oven/microwave and even a rice cooker upon request.
Killiney Rd kopitiam is about 3minutes walk away - good for breakfast before Orchard Rd comes to life at 10am.
Thoroughly recommend this place.
Only one small issue - there isn't a taxi drop off /pick up point for the property so that is done on the road side which is not a big problem.

We are relocating to singapore, whilst house hunting this makes an excellant temp home. The kitchen is large by sg standards and really well stocked with all items you need. Decor is a bit old and carpet raggedy looking but othetwise very well kept and daily cleaning service. The cleaner is also very thoughogh. No extra chargedls to have our cat stay with us. Free wifi! Great front desk service with quick efficient responses. Its nice having hassle free accomodation especially at a very busy time!

We have just stayed 5 nights at Lanson Place. We didn't book direct, but through a discount site and got what I think is a really good deal. We paid slightly more than a hotel room price for a fully equipped apartment. We had booked a 1 bed, but were upgraded to a 2 bed apartment which was huge by Singapore standards. Fully equipped, including dishwasher and espresso machine, DVD players and surround sound systems etc. The room was spotless and kept so everyday by the friendly housekeeping staff. Decor is tasteful and importantly they have a really top notch airconditioning system which is quiet and efficient compared to other places I have stayed. There is always somebody on reception and they are extremely attentive and helpful. Obviously high training standards and engaged staff. This is the 4th serviced apartment I have stayed in in Singapore and would fully recommend it to anybody who is staying long or short term. Location is very handy for MRT, Orchard Road and a short taxi journey from anywhere else.

A small residence, off Orchard Road (next to Orchard Central), with big apartments (we had a two bedroom) and everything you may need!

Well equipped, well maintained, not the latest style but everything in good shape and working properly!
Fantastic pool on the roof top with Hot tub and BBQ area for your own use.

Gym is a bit small but enough for a short stay in SIN.
No restaurant, but easy to access a lot of them around.

Very small reception area but great smiling and helpful staff!

Room Tip: Try to get a higher floor, lower ones have outside trees blocking the light.

We stayed at Lanson Place during our first month in Singapore (relocating from London). Our two bedroom apartment was very spacious and was well equipped. The decor was a bit dated, but it was clean (serviced daily) and everything functioned. One downside was the fact that the kitchen had quite a few ants. It's a typical problem in Singapore, but the issue remained despite a visit from the pest control. However, this just gave us an extra excuse to explore the local restaurants and hawker centres.
The rooftop pool was lovely and never felt crowded. The ground floor gym, TV room and business centre were fairly well equipped.
The service was at all times of the highest quality and the staff really looked after us well. They even helped us organise a small party by the pool one evening.
Another huge plus is the central location. It was a great base for exploring the city, located just a few minutes walk from Somerset MRT, Orchard shopping strip and the famous Killiney Road.

I would really recommend Lanson Place as a home away from home.

I recently stayed here for a month as part of our relocation to Singapore and I have no hesitation in recommending it to others for both short and long term stays. There are a few cons, but they are certainly outweighed by al the pros.
My husband relocated in September last year, and one weekend I sent him to look at a few options for our month-long January stay (for him, myself and 15-year old). After seeing about 6 services apartments, he confirmed that Lanson Place Winsland was the best of all the options in our price range.
Booked over the internet with Terecia in Reservations, who was at all times efficient and friendly; her follow up was excellent and professional.
Arrived late one night in early January and took advantage of the free airport pickup service offered for stays of one month and over. Driver was late in meeting our flight and I was concerned this was not a good omen. However, once we arrived at the apartments everything went smoothly. We were shown to our 2 bedroom executive apartment and given a quick tour of the apartment and its amenities (i.e. how to use the Jura coffee machine, washer/dryer instructions if required etc).
By Singapore standards the apartment was spacious and well equipped; my only gripe would be that it was very dark and is a little dated in parts. However, it had absolutely everything we needed - master bedroom with full ensuite (bath with overhead shower), dressing table, safe, cable tv; second bedroom (2 singles); small second bathroom (shower and toilet); living/dining area - desk, couch, armchair, lamps, 2 types of cable tv (Starhub & Mio), dining table + 4 chairs; bar stools at kitchen servery; kitchen was well equipped if a little dated - oven, microwave, large fridge/freezer, combined washer/dryer, dishwasher, full complement of crockery, cutlery, kitchen accessories, microwave, toaster, Jura coffee machine. We were also provided with a starter pack for the kitchen (cereal, juice, drinks, jam, butter, milk, coffee beans, tea etc), which was a nice touch. Each apartment has full wifi and it always worked really well.
You can order food from several nearby restaurants (even McDonalds delivers 24/7), although there are restaurants, supermarkets all within walking distance (under 5 minutes).
Used the gym every day - staff were very helpful when I needed assistance with tuning the DVD player; small towels provided in gym; cold water.
Pool is on the top floor and is functional and modern; plenty of pool towels available; ice, bbq facilities.
Business centre has pcs and a Mac, scanner, printers, small conference room, lounge area with tv, books, DVDs, magazines and newspapers, coffee machine, fridge with bottled water.
Location is fantastic - right near Orchard Road, Somerset MRT, several huge shopping malls (313 @ Somerset; Orchard Central, Centrepoint etc); near a taxi rank, bus stops to everywhere, easy to get to Istana and Plaza Singapura, Singapore River, Fort Canning etc. The no. 36 bus from the airport even stops right outside.
The absolute best thing about this apartment is the staff. Everyone we encountered all month long was friendly, helpful and professional - they just could not do enough for us, bent over backwards to help us and make our stay as pleasant as possible, even going above and beyond the call of duty. All the men at reception, head of housekeeping, maintenance men - all of them were fantastic.
On Chinese New Year we were invited to a Lion Dance and a buffet lunch, which was a lovely touch.
I can highly recommend Lanson Place for both short and long term accommodation in central Singapore. (Speaking of long term - I met one couple who have been living there with their dog for more than 2 years and have no complaints!)
