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 clean. It was a nice comfortable home and in a quiet neighbourhood.
The family keeps beautiful daschunds, but are normally kept out of sight. There is a lovely indoor lap pool.
Definitely recommend to family and friends.

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.

The L Residence is a remarkable place. The property is immaculately maintained, clean, comfortable, welcoming, and secure. I felt like a wealthy resident of Singapore instead of a tourist. The staff is polite and helpful. The staff treated us like royalty. The one house attendant (I believe her name is Lilly / Lillian) cooked us breakfast each morning. She also helped us make arrangements for a taxi to the train station upon checkout. Additionally, she accommodated us with a late check-out upon departure. I HIGHLY recommend the L Residence. If you want to be in a quieter residential district yet close to public transportation, the L Residence is ideal. My partner and I enjoy walking and therefore didn't mind the 2mile walk to Orchard Road. However, there is a public bus stop within steps of the property. Additionally, the Botanic Garden is nearby and the subway system is within reach there. I look forward to returning to Singapore and staying here all over again.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor and had a lovely room with a view of the pool. About a month prior to...

It was a great stay in a home with yummy breakfast.
The location is just in a convenient classy exclusive neighbourhood near Botanical Gardens & the city.
It was nice a peaceful, and I enjoyed their collection of game birds, pheasant, quails, and mandarin ducks ! They also have an interesting collection of plants, like local herbs & spices, cocoa plant, coffee plant, miracle fruit plant, lemon grass etc etc.... What a treat !

The rooms are attached to shower and toilet. Towels are provided. TV with all the movies... but who wants to sit around when Botanical Gardens is just a stones throw away !

I enjoyed the home comfort and the family history there.

Good for those who prefer a peaceful home environment and well located.

Wow. What a place. If you want an alternative to the expensive hotel chains, this is the place to stay in Singapore. Beautiful huge manor house decorated with asian antiques. Conveniently located near to downtown and next to the beautiful botanic gardens (a must see). Quiet, clean, comfortable, and full of character. Huge room, huge bed, huge TV and modern washroom. Great breakfast. All for less than half what you would pay at a decent hotel in Singapore.

What a splendid place to stay ! Spacious, Green, and Quiet with the gracious house staff providing breakfast, good cheer and high competence, relaying messages and always being helpful.

The place is a home, a comfortable home where some rooms are avaliable.

The room came with fresh new toilets and shower. Clean towels are all provided with shampoo & soap.

The room has a 42 inch flat screen tv, with lots of news and movie channels to choose from. The beds were large and comfortable. The pillows were nice and soft, and the sheets fresh, white and clean. I had a very good sleep.

This home is luxuariously decorated and yet homely and comfortable.

There is public transport that is so easy to get to. The underground station is also close by, and has immediate access to many of the historical and tourist places in Singapore, such as, museums, holland village (old british army outpost, and not a busy exciting shopping and eating place), etc.

This is certainly a place I would return if I come to Singapore again.

In a home, comfortable, clean, nice new showers and toilets. Love that its close to town and beautiful lush botanical gardens.

Great for those who like bed & breakfast establishment. The room is also provided with 1st day complimentary refreshments, like packet drinks, light biscuits, make your own coffee & tea. There is a mini fridge where you can place your on food.

There is a 16 meter, I think, lap pool. In door pool and its great for a dip or just swim.

The deco of the house is very tasteful. There are a good mix of new and antiques. Lots of nice oriental furniture and art.

It's managed by a family whose great grand mother who was the first Chinese woman to graduated from USA with an occidental decimal degree. There is so much family history in the house. Enjoyed looking at the family pictures on displayed.

There is also a mini- bird collection of quails, an drain ducks, pheasants, and partridge. Oh yes they have a cute talking African grey parrot.

The home is located in a good safe neighborhood. There are 24 hour food outlets serving both fast food and Asian cuisine.

It is only a few mins by taxi to the center of their shopping avenue.

The botanical gardens are so close to the house. There are orchid enclosures displaying full blooms colorfully arranged in the garden. There is a healing and fragrant gardens too.

It's was a good choice to stay. Closer to what the locals enjoy.

Room Tip: It's a bed and breakfast style. So great for those who like their space and time. Breakfast was...
