Yes it's a tourist spot, yes it's a rip off but you are not forced to go and you are not forced to buy. It is fun and also a lovely building, don't miss out. The toilets are free and very pleasant too.

What a special treat! My husband and I went with family to sample the infamous Singapore sling. It didn't disappoint very delicious, the barman made us feel very special although he must be so bored of making the same drinks for majority of visitors. It felt like stepping back in time, not in an old dingey way but of opulence... More

This is one of the best hotels I've stopped at. Everything about it was fabulous from the clean rooms, friendly staff and overall experience. The location was great to see the city and the breakfast were brilliant. The rooms were outstanding. The butler service was brilliant and they couldn't do enough for us. Well worth staying.

Raffles is absolutely fabulous! The service is impeccable - they are there when you need something (anything!) but in a lovely understated and friendly manner. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully decorated - not flashy but very stylish. The whole experience is delightful - can't imagine staying at a hotel can get any better. Breakfast buffet is excellent. A Singapore... More

Having heard so many great things about Raffles in Singapore and having stayed at Raffles in the Seychelles last year, it was a must on our to do list whilst visiting Thailand and Singapore. Upon arrival, we were greeted with the iconic Singapore Sling which didn't disappoint. Check-in was fast and painless and we were quickly in our suite. The... More

A real tourist trap I must say. To have a Singapore sling and throw peanuts on the floor is whats all about, nothing much more. Only tourists to check of the beenthere-donethat list with a sling in there hands (as I did!!) But besides that nothing special. The original Longbar has moved so this is not even the original location.... More

This is the third time I have had the famous Sunday Brunch at Raffles. The service and food are exquisite. Kick off is noon and there is usually a small queue waiting to enter even though it has to be pre booked. It is expensive ( about £ 98 per head), BUT, considering the drink is freeflow ( no limit...

No matter how much time you spend in SE Asia, you simply cannot count yourself among the worldly without a sojourn at Raffles. This must be what it was like a hundred years ago to be a colonial dignitary, a proconsul, or an international celebrity. From the iconic check-in proceedings to the private service butlers - it is an experience... More

We absolutely loved our stay at The Raffles. Check-in was very efficient and a complimentary Singapore Sling on arrival in the stunning reception was a welcome retreat from the hot Singapore sun. The hotel grounds are beautifully maintained and the staff were all wonderful. The suite itself was beautiful, so clean and fitting with the Colonial style. We also had... More
