i've stayed in this hotel for a lot of times and each time i walk up of the hotel being happy ..
i like it because:
1/ it's boutique (don't get bumping into a lot of people);
2/ bell service is excellent (the staff remember our names everytime we walk in);
3/ the room is spacious + the little kitchen
4/ the location is just nice (quiet enough in such a busy district and yet a nice walk to everywhere)
all in all, great value of money!!

What people sometimes forget is the star rating is based on facilties- there are some awful 5 star establishments in HK which will even charge extra for breakfast. This Hotel ticked my boxes and I would stay here again. Lanson Place is between Causeway Bay and the centre- its not a pretty location but v convenient. The building is mock colonial, quite interesting! Interior gives a boutique hotel feel, ie the restrooms off the reception look straight out of a swanky members club.
On arriving we were given an upgrade and comp drinks- room was not huge although seperate bed area etc - this is normal in HK even at this level. Nice large flatscreen and decent kitchen facilties. Only complaint is bathroom is so not private- and first room felt damp, from lack of ventilation perhaps (we changed for 2nd night).

Other good points -the dvd library is very comprehensive but get your orders in early, all the films I wanted to watch were out :) Great, friendly service (not all HK Hotels are friendly like this),quiet internet room should you need it and a fantastic breakfast.

This hotel is close to an incredibly busy shopping district, but our room was quiet, elegant and comfortable, overlooking a convent school. Taxis are very cheap and plentiful in hong Kong, so we used them a lot, but there is a MTR station nearby too.

The staff were friendly, efficient and helpful. Although we visited during the Chinese New Year, when they were very busy, they were really helpful at fixing us up with an early access to our room when a long distance flight arrived at 6am..

Breakfasts were a bit disappointing, but as these rooms have self catering facilities we could have eaten in our room. A large, interesting 'Welcome' supermarket is about a 5 minute walk away.

The Lanson Place Hotel was a great place to saty when we visited Hong Kong on vacation. Local amenities included a good array of restaurants for evening dining and good access to shops.
Publice transports links were also good for both buses which we used to get to Port Stanley and the MTR which is fantastic.
The rooms in the hotel were a good size and nicely furnished. Bathrooms and towels excellent. I have seen people complain about glass doors on bathroom but, frankly, this is a non-event as doors are not see-through.
Although Hing Kong is a very busy and noisy place the hotel is quiet. Breakfast was served in a relaxed environment in the lounge area with a nice buffet and friendly staff.
In summary, a good value welcoming place to stay in a good location with helpful staff and comfortable, quiet rooms

Agreed with most reviews that it was a great hotel, like a home with great location. However the hotel reception/booking was terrible when it comes to extending the stay.

We stayed for 2 nights back in November and on the second day we decided to stay for an extra night. Rang receiption about extending the stay and they said it would require us to change room, it was no problem for us. So the next day in the morning we were told how the room swapping was going to happen. We were told to pack up our bags to prepare for the swap and concierge would move the bags to the new room. By about 11 am, I left the room with suitcases packed, handed in the key in reception. And reecption confirmed that I could go for a quick brunch, and the new room would be ready and the bags sent to the new room. I was to go back in an hour to pick up the new room key, all sounded good.

I returned at 2pm the room wasn't ready, and at 4:30pm I returned and was told the new room wasn't ready again. The reception wasn't going to allocation one right away, they expected me to 'walk about' for another hour or so. I complained and a room just became available and was told that I could go and move my own bags!!! It's not a type of service one expected from Lanson. Very disappointing.

We arrived at the hotel at noon on a Wednesday via the airport shuttle bus set up by the hotel. Bus called ahead and concierge was waiting with extra staff to offload our 5 large pieces of our luggage and we were ushered off into the elevator for the check in on the 1st floor in a very serene and beautiful lounge. The check-in was flawless, smooth and very courteous and professional.

The room was a corner one on the 11 the floor (hotel has 25? floors). The room was large for HK standards! It has a kitchenette (range, pots/pans, sink, refrigerator, microwave). The hall closets were large and had a safe, ironing board, step stool, iron etc. The sitting area had a very nice leather couch and chair as well as a flat screen LCD TV (42 inches). Under the TV is the dresser with ample storage. The TV is setup very cleverly so it can rotate to face the sitting room or the bed room.

On the bed room side of the TV is a work table with broadband access cable (though wireless was available as well). The wireless internet access was very fast; almost like you would get at work.

The bed was superb, fluffy and comfortable with sparkling white sheets. and the corner room was great as you had floor to ceiling windows on two sides.

The bathroom was small but very efficient, clean and contemporary. The shower had both a rain shower head as well as a hand shower making it easy to bathe little kids.

Housekeeping service was excellent, efficient, quiet and unobtrusive.
