Homey Feel at Lanson Place Bukit Ceylon Serviced Residences


After dinner, we decided to have our nightly beer sesh around the area. But the moms refused to join us because they said they were too tired. They went back to our home in Kuala Lumpur, Lanson Place Bukit Ceylon, while me and my buddy went to a bar somewhere at Jalan Ceylon. We went home at around eleven in the evening and were surprised to see them endlessly chatting on the kitchen while having some tea and fresh fruits. They were speaking of our great Malaysian adventure and how great it is to have a ‘home’ rather than a hotel room for accommodation. Obviously, they're loving our two-bedroom suite.

Coming from Melaka, we took a two-hour bus that brought us to TBS (the main long distance bus terminal in Kuala Lumpur). From there, we hailed a cab that took us to Lanson Place in Bukit Ceylon. Kuala Lumpur was our second stop in Malaysia for our annual two-month backpacking trip, Same Same Summer Trip 2017, and for the first time, we brought our respective moms during the first two weeks. It was their first time to experience backpacking, while it was, as well, a new adventure to bring them along with us on this kind of trip.


Having been to Kuala Lumpur a number of times, we had a rough itinerary on where we would bring the moms along (check here for discounted tours, transportation and activities in Kuala Lumpur). We had three days to go around the city and we needed to get settled first.

I’ve been to numerous hotels in Kuala Lumpur on different areas, and this time, I wanted for us to have the perfect location to maximize our short stay. I searched the web and found that Lanson Place Bukit Ceylon had the perfect room for the four of us, a two-bedroom residensi which I immediately booked online (check for discounted rates).

Just as we stepped out of the cab, a staff welcomed and assisted us on our luggage. The elegant and chic interiors welcomed us as we opened the glass doors leading to the reception. I left the rest of the group on the lounge area while I processed our booking.

The airy lobby was complemented with classy minimalist furniture and fixtures set against the checkered black and white granite flooring. The reception area may be intimidating at first, but once you sat on the plush seats provided for guests, you’d feel at home as the friendly officers will make you feel warm and welcome. I love how intimate and personalized the setting was.

Billeted on a Two-Bedroom & Study Room Residensi, we were surprised on how huge our home was as we tapped on the key card, 141 sq.m. to be exact. There’s a hallway that leads to the dining area which has a round table with six comfy chairs.

Next to it is a living area with L-shaped sofa, funky light fixtures and an entertainment rack complete with huge flat screen TV, DVD player, iPod docking station and surround sound system. We also had our own router for the wireless internet, cool eh?

Living area
There’s also a fully functional kitchen complete with breakfast nook and high stools. There’s a fridge, oven, microwave oven, electric cooktop, dishwasher, espresso machine, and kitchen utensils. An automatic shutter blinds is also available that's used to cover the whole kitchen counter if needed, perfect for receiving guests.

A small door just opposite the kitchen leads to a laundry room with a separate washer and dryer, ironing board and iron plus an ample space to do the laundry. There’s also a detergent available and you can request for more if it’s not adequate enough.

And there's a laundry room too!
My mom and I were roomies and we occupied the master bedroom. Right before I reached the said room, I went inside a door that led me to a study room with an ergonomic chair, desk lamp, telephone and a long work table. The space itself has its own individually-powered AC and I instantly got my stuff and announced to everyone that this will be my own space in our so-called temporary house in KL.

The master bedroom has a queen-sized plush bed and fluffy pillows. The end tables have night lamps and we also had our own TV. There’s a lot of storage space for our stuff rested at the same wall where the entertainment rack was.

The room also has its own toilet and bath. The space was, again, huge as it’s divided into three separate areas; one for the lavatory with provided bathroom amenities, a separate stall for the toilet and another one for the shower and bathtub.

The guest room has two single beds and also its own TV where my buddy and his mom stayed in. There’s another toilet and bath located right outside the room which can also be used as a powder room for guests.

And have I mentioned that we had a great view of Kuala Lumpur from the bedrooms and the living area? Our moms were giddy as they inspected each and every corner of the contemporary space and they were freaking out as we always have the chance to see each other, unlike when staying on hotels with separate rooms.

As much as we wanted to just chill out, we wanted our moms to enjoy the sights of the city and just promised them to go home early for them to have more leisure time at Lanson Place Bukit Ceylon, which actually what happened that night. So after showing them around the famous landmarks of Kuala Lumpur, we headed for a quick food trippin’ session on the nearby Jalan Alor and then let them go home as me and my buddy went for a round of beer.

After an hour of boozing up, we walked our way to our quiet community thinking that our moms would probably be asleep at that time. We found them endlessly chatting at the breakfast nook while having tea and fruits. We joined them and went to bed really late that night.

I had the best sleep in ages. I woke up to the sound of my mom’s footsteps and cocooned more inside the duvet. She went up to me and asked if where we’ll be having our breakfast. I told her that we have complimentary breakfast at the Lounge, she got more excited and asked me to get up right away.

The Lounge
The Lounge at the 48th and 49th floor is exclusive for in-house guests. A 360 degree-view of the city can be seen from the floor-to-ceiling glass windows on both floors. There’s a billiard table, fully equipped gym, and more lounge areas. We were welcomed by a gracious staff and allowed us to choose our seats for that morning.

We enjoyed a wide array of Continental Breakfast. I loaded up with bread rolls, hams, sausages, cheese and freshly squeezed juices. The moms devoured a hefty amount of fresh salads and fruits. We had a nice time chatting while enjoying the early morning view of the city.

Another round of sightseeing that day and we came home again to Lanson Place that night and enjoyed watching some movies. The next day, we did some laundry while hitting the swimming pool for our morning dip. Sadly, it was also our last day.


Staying at Lanson Place Bukit Ceylon actually redefined the term ‘home away from home’ as it provides all the comforts you’d ever need when you travel. Our moms enjoyed their time on our lovely residence suite and both mentioned that on our future trips, we should be staying on a ‘home’ rather than in a ‘room’. We couldn't agree more.
