I haven't stayed at this hotel but had the pleasure of the Sunday Brunch when I was visiting my brother recently. We had a walk around the hotel (those areas accessible to the public) and it looked excellent - scrupulously clean and very well laid out. The brunch itself was amazing - its not cheap but the array and quality... More

I know it's historic, but no bedside outlets or USB ports? CRT televisions? That is a bit of an "up yours" to their guests. Otherwise, this is a perfect luxury property in every respect. ... Except the wi-fi disconnects.

staying at Raffles is probably not for everyone. There are plenty of modern hotels with more up to date facilities, and more sophistication. But for those who appreciate a timeless classic, truly excellent service, and the pleasure of staying at a truly historic landmark hotel, Raffles is hard to beat. All the rooms are suites, that have been maintained to... More

I would say this is one of if not the best hotel I have ever stayed in, I just wish we could have afforded to stay longer. I had my own Butler who laid my night clothes out for me & placed slippers ready at the end of the bed. We had a courtyard room. I loved the pool, I... More

I have seen Raffles Hotel in films so many times, right on the beach. Sadly it now has a road in front of it.. We had a tour of the hotel and a ginsling in the bar with monkey nuts to shell and throw on the floor. It was also very busy and crowded I wish I had seen it... More

We only went to sample a Singapore sling.. The place itself retains its splendour and the staff were very friendly but the cost of the drink was way too expensive. The final bill had all sorts added on but we did enjoy the experience. Free peanuts

Yes it isn't flash and modern but that isn't why you stay here. The service is exceptional, the staff always courteous and the colonial feel is exactly as it should be. I had requested an early check in after a long flight and and also informed the hotel that we were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. We were met by... More

The property is beautiful if completely lifeless. It is like visiting a dusty museum without updated interactive displays. No music, no life in the lobby or any public spaces. This property should be phenomenal and vibrant instead the ghosts of times of stylish guests and cocktails are everywhere with nothing to replace it. The clientele is decidedly of the motorbus...

On our recent visit to Singapore we chose the more modern hotel option being the Marina Bay Sands. However our visit would not have been complete without a re-visit to Raffles Hotel that we stayed in some years ago. It's delightful to see that this remains a famous landmark and almost an institution, not just amongst the Singaporean culture but... More
