Well what a fine collection of boutiques and bespoke tailors. Not the place to go bargain hunting. But if you want a tailored jacket or some shirts you'll be accommodated at reasonable rate - not cheap but then its personal and quick - 48 hours for a jacket from Jack's Custom Tailoring. Happy to recommend not so sure I want... More

So much history and service here. 100 years of the Singapore Sling, 50 years as independent nation, so much to celebrate. Outdoor bars, plus omelette and pizza stations in the courtyard, what's not to like. A unique gift shop not unlike the Hotel Del Coronado in San Diego.

My second visit here and I was surprised at the lack of tourists, shops, and lunchtime restaurant closed. What has happened?

When you're in Singapore you have to spend an hour or so visiting the Raffles. The accommodation section is rightly closed to visitors but the Arcade and restaurants or worth the stroll. The Halia had great food at an affordable price, but unfortunately the atmosphere of the restaurant was a let-down.

Not able to enter the hotel lobby. Only the outside bar... The hotel is now outdated and needs attention to detail. I did not order the typical Singapore Sling as I felt it was a tourist trap set up...sorry

Ok, the Singapore sling is famous and this is the home of it. We enjoyed our sling and eating peanuts, but to be honest it is a premixed drink that is very expensive $76 for 2. But it is an experience to say you have done it.

Nice walk around hotel arcade and courtyard. Enjoyed a Singapore sling in the long bar, custom of throwing empty nut shells all over the floor was new to us! Bit overpriced like regular tourist traps. Main hotel lobby exclusively for guests which was disappointing.

The creamy white architecture is divine and the shops are high end. Unfortunately, this is a major tourist attraction and consequently it is filled with clueless tourists wearing tour group badges, shorts and black knee socks, jostling their way to the Long Bar. It is a shame to see the Raffles Hotel atmosphere cheapened like this.

Raffles Hotel is not only a Singaporean icon, it is an icon of the former British Empire and as such it has to be visited just for that. A must -see when in Singapore.
