Lovely experience walking through the long, open sided corridors and white rooms of the hotel to finally experience the Long Bar. It was wonderful to reflect on the famous faces who have frequented Raffles in the past. The gift shop is expensive, but a bookmark with the signature Singapore Sling recipe is worth the couple of UK pounds it will... More

And we probably will! You can eat to your heart's (and stomach's) content here, but your pocket will suffer serious indigestion. Every luxury food you can imagine, served by charming staff in a magnificent setting - the billiard tables are turned into serving tables for the duration.

Now this is one of those situations on Trip Advisor where many people post a review in the wrong place so I'm not going to do that but hopefully my review may prevent it happening in the future... So here on Trip Advisor you will find listings for both the "Raffles Hotel Arcade", that is this listing, and then there... More

We decided to visit Raffles as it's an iconic institution and although expensive for tea, it's much more than tea, it's an experience not to be missed if you have time when in Singapore

Visited the famous Long Bar and enjoyed a Singapore Sling. Although it wasn't cheap it was something I've wanted to do for a long time & I wasn't disappointed. We threw are peanut shells on the floor & laughed with other customers and listened to a live band playing. Would have liked to stay longer. Loved it!

The Raffles Hotel is probably the oldest Hotel in town and you can feel the old times inside the arcade. It is really beautiful and you should at least try a singapore sling inside the arcade. We didn't because it was very very expensive, but also if you ain't got Money, a look inside the arcade costs nothing.
