A really nice hotel with great facilities such as pool and Spa. Great food and lovely clean, quiet room. However, what separates this hotel from other similar quality hotels is the staff - exceptional.

This hotel certainly has colonial charm and is an oasis in the middle of a very busy city. We stayed 2 nights in a Balcony Suite. This is a corner room which is not very large with a small balcony. We found the room to be very dark even with all the lights on. The bathroom is small and the... More

This was one of the most wonderful hotels I have ever stayed at. It is truly a five star luxurious experience. The service was impeccable, the pools are gorgeous, and the food services have great variety. I love the fact that there were three different restaurants in this hotel. Only thing I would say is don't book tours through the... More

One has to be really finicky to find something to complain about when staying at this superb hotel, but it's there! One can put up with the hot water over the bath being tepid and the with-fi in one's room being intermittent, however, in the Year of Our Lord 2014 one should not have to tolerate smoking in any area...

The rooms were ok and the service was perfect. The french restaurant was absolutely beatiful but the food was as far from "frenchtasting" as possible. It was actually quite awful and very expensive considering the quality.

The hotel offers an insight into the French colonial era, being a rather grand, 1920's building, which has been spared any substantial renovation. My room was a so-called "personality" suite, located on the second floor, the name attesting to its having hosted an eminent personage from colonial times. The room was high-ceilinged and floored with dark hardwood timber. A small... More

There is no better hotel in Southeast Asia. I'm willing to be there is no better hotel in the world for the price. Staff are exceptionally courteous, the grounds are beautifully kept, and the pool is a perfect oasis.

One of the very best hotels in the world. I would most certainly return again. I will use the Raffles Group of Hotels more often from now on. Do not be put off by the price, the experience and the service is worth every penny
