Fourth time at Raffles, this time for a short visit, and it keeps surpassing itself. This time we got an upgrade to a suite in the main building, above the reception. It was 150 sq m, had two bathrooms, a pantry, a huge bedroom, a dressing room, a large living area, and a huge private terrace. All with five metre... More

Obviously had heard and read about Raffles and when we got to Singapore were keen to visit. The architecture is great and you really get to experience what life back in the colonial era was like. Spent time walking the grounds and finishing up ordering drinks in the Long Bar. Bar was busy on the afternoon we were there. To... More

the building is well preserved. the famous high tea set is enjoyable. but in the restaurant so many tables to enjoy a high tea, may you feel a little noisy there. the venue itself is very convenient for foreigners.

Despite our very short stay the experience was memorable for all the right reasons. On arrival we were seated in the large reception area and offered complimentary 'Singapore Slings' we were dealt with quickly and efficiently by one of the best service people that I have met. Our bags were whisked away and we were guided to our room. All... More

We went here just for a cocktail one evening as when you are in Singapore you have to do this. The bar has a very lively feel to it and we loved throwing peanut shells on the floor (they encourage you to do this) The Singapore Sling was good although it's pricey. Would definitely recommend going here.

As a writer, Raffles has been on my bucket list for some time. When the opportunity came to go there at last, I grabbed it. And it lived up to every expectation and more. The staff are genuinely welcoming and attentive without being annoying. The building and our room was spectacular. If those walls could speak...but the staff were more... More

Raffles more than lived up to our expectations. The staff were all helpful and responded to our requests without being intrusive. Our courtyard suite (although one of the cheaper rooms) was large and divided into separate areas and was furnished in keeping with the atmosphere of the hotel. Afternoon tea served on our balcony was one of the more special... More

After signing in was abandoned in the lobby and after another 15 minute wait complained and suddenly the key for the room arrived. No coffee or tea making facility in the Suite which seems surprising for the price of this hotel. TV was extremely old reminiscent of the 1980's with a poor picture quality. WIFI was slow with poor connection.... More

After 2 weeks in Sri Lanka this was a haven of colonial charm and luxury. Fabulous decor with genuine treasures of the past and an almost embarrassing attention to detail. The rooms were divine and if some say it is a little shabby, I wish my house was this shabby. Staff were amazing and made you feel (over a very... More
