Stayed here for a weekend (3 nights) in November 2012.

Took a cab to the hotel. Our taxi driver didn't know how to find it so he dropped us off near Times Square and we walked around for about 15-20 minutes until we found Leighton Rd and the hotel.

First impressions of the hotel -- really nice exterior stone detailing. Ground floor is concierge and a small courtyard with tables. Went up to 1st floor for check-in. Was suprised to be upgraded to a Deluxe room and free wifi!!! Staff was really great and everyone spoke good English.

LOCATION: Location turned out to be really good. Once you know your way to Times Square (passing by Lee Garden mall) it is really a nice walk. About 8-10 minutes walk from hotel to Times Square/SOGO. The shops around Lee Garden mall are all top-end designer brands, (Cartier, Gucci, Miu Miu, etc.) so if you aren't looking for that type of stuff then you can only enjoy the window displays =\
There is also a 7-Eleven, a fruit stall and some small eateries (froyo, pizza, ramen joint, burger joint) across the street from the hotel.

ROOM: We got upgraded to a Deluxe room. View was across to another building and part of the street, nothing great. Had a little kitchenette, couch and computer desk. Room was clean, smelled good. Only problem was that the carpets could use some cleaning. Bathroom was clean and the products they have are really good. (can't remember the brand name but the mrs. swiped a couple to take home)

SERVICE: Didn't have the breakfast so can't comment on the food or service there. The concierge was really spot-on though. ALWAYS smiling, even if we came back at 1 AM. Asked them for some good cha siu and they recommended a nice place near Lee Garden mall. They always translated our location into Cantonese to tell the taxi drivers. 5 stars for sure. Gym is 24 hours and is also quite nice.

Overall: Lanson Place HK really delivered. A great location, close by the Times Square/SOGO action yet quiet enough away from the bright lights. Great staff & amenities but carpets could use some cleaning and a bit tough to locate.

I only stayed for one night this trip, but almost wished that the trip was longer because the hotel was so nice! Very centrally located, and the rooms are great. There's a welcome basket with cookies and fruit juice and theres a hob a microwave in case you want to do some cooking of your own. The room had a little separate sitting area, which was nice. The bed was very comfy. I loved the toiletries provided as well. Will definitely come back here the next time I come to Hong Kong!

We have stayed here on two separate occasions and we left each time feeling like we should have stayed longer. The hotel is located in Causeway Bay, which is a great neighbourhood to soak up the best of HK: shopping and food. Also, we have always preferred staying on HK Island over Kowloon as it is less hectic on this side. It is a stone's throw away from the MTR station, which was really convenient since much of what to do in HK is located along the MTR lines. There was nothing we could fault with the room. Whilst it wasn't spacious, it was of a decent size (taking into consideration that rooms are traditionally pint sized in HK). The bed was very comfortable, the room was clean and we also enjoyed the complimentary pastries which they had thoughtfully left in the room as a welcome gesture. We will most definitely return again when we are next in HK on business.

This Hotel is classy, you can tell by the room, its amenities,and its features that it is classy. The checking in was a bit slow, as there were few staff. The concierge was great and helpful, especially since there is not many taxi waiting as it has no driveway to hotel. Bed is great with microwave and induction cooker available in mini kitchen. The room is like a mini suite, bot that big though. The hotel is close to shopping area, but there are few stores near the surroundings, takes about 5 minute walk. Breakfast was inclusive, but simple as compared other hotel.

This review is just long due. Lanson Place hotel has served as an excellent base for me during quick business trips to Hong Kong over the years. I love the location in a posh, peaceful neighborhood, steps away from fabulous shopping and great local places for quick bites. I really appreciate the sincere and discreet service.

It is a true small luxury hotel, quiet elegance away from the pomp and circumstance of over the top Hong Kong.
Top notch service on all levels, always a smooth experience. Love the new free movies channel!

Lanson Place just keeps getting better, kudos to the team!
