Patronised the Long Bar on Sunday the 6th July 2014 at about 10pm. Prior to that had gone to a top hotel, which has a rooftop bar. The reception I received there was very disappointing, entered the bar but not a single staff approached me or my 3 guests. We couldn't find a vacant table and decided to leave, all... More

We have just returned from our wonderful 2 night stay to celebrate my 50th birthday. This was a real treat for me as it's a favourite place to go when in Singapore for a Sling or High Tea; it did not disappoint. So rich in charm, history and mystique. Take a seat anywhere and soak in all the splendour. I... More

I stayed at raffles in August 2013 and really enjoyed my three nights there. The hotel is elegant and has maintained its colonial charms. A Singapore sling at the bar is a must. The rooms are spacious , clean and comfortable with period decor. I imagine this as more of a couples hotel or business, as the facilities for families... More

We stayed for two nights and would have loved to stay longer - everything was perfect. CHECK-IN - Quick, efficient check-in whilst seated in the foyer of this impressive hotel. ROOM - a lovely comfortable room which was decorated in a colonial style. Room was huge and everything was spotlessly clean SERVICE - within minutes of arriving in our room... More

my partner and I did not stay at raffles but we visited it for lunch and of course the Singapore sling! The hotel and grounds looked amazing and whilst we were there we went into one of the jewellery shops where I fell in love with one of their rings which a few days later my partner went and bought...

Staying at Raffles Singapore was something we had wanted to do for quite a while. The stay we had met and exceeded our expectations. From the moment we arrived until the early morning call, beautiful coffee and check out we were spoilt. The care the staff showed was amazing and complimented beautifully how special we felt to stay in our... More

Was the AUD800 we paid for our night at Raffles (birthday treat for my husband on our way home from Europe) money well spent? Absolutely! I could go on about the great things that are mentioned in almost every review, but what impressed me most exceptionally was that despite the fact that we were dressed in the same clothes for...

Felt like I had gone back into time, the hotel is full of character, history and charm beats staying at a flashy, contemporary, modern hotel which can be anywhere. I stated in the state room which had huge amounts of space. The beds were comfortable only thing they could improve on if I'm to be picky is the shower head... More

Stayed here for one night on our way to Indonesia. It was a great experience and a 'one off ' for us. The service was wonderful and the room even better. The food was delicious and The Long Bar an experience that everyone visiting Singapore should have even if they are not staying in the hotel. The prices are rather... More

I would say that this rating should possibly be a four and a half as the faults we found were very small issues. Compared to other five star establishments we found Raffles slightly lacking, hard to even pinpoint where. We put it down to attention to detail ie staff not remembering how we like our tea order, door staff not... More
