Loved the grand feel of the hotel. The rooms were huge and very old school. It felt like I was in a colonial movie. I even got my own butler. I travel to Singapore often on business but I have to stay this is my preferred hotel. Make sure you have a Singapore sling at the bar. Service was superb... More

Quite simply one of the finest hotels I have ever stayed at. Had heard about it many times, but staying there was even better than I could have Imagined. The ambience is superb with an old colonial feel to it. Service was superb. Nothing was too much trouble. If you get the chance, go there.

Very nice hotel that breaths the air from the era when quality, service and atmosphere made a difference. The hotel standard is really high, and if you like colonoal times, this must be it.... The long bar floor is furnished with colonial furniture and the wooden floor is covered with broken peanut shells. The room iself spread a nice feeling... More

Our first encounter with Raffles was for Christmas lunch in 2001 and following a move to Malaysia soon after we have been returning to the hotel for dinner, drinks in the Long Bar and attending different functions...we had never managed to stay there until now. The hotel is a landmark in Singapore and should be on everyone's bucket list as... More

We stayed at The Raffles Hotel for 2 nights on the way to Australia. We decided to stay here due to the hotels reputation. It is really a hotel from a different era, linking to the old colonial past. The faclities, food and staff were all excellent, our room overlooking the palm trees was very nice, and you did not... More

Located in a beautifully restored old building, the hotel provides a number of photo opportunities and a chance to imagine what old Singapore may have been like, particularly given that the hotel is located near a number of other historic sites. I was quite disappointed that the hotel owners are charging excessively exorbitant prices. The hotel appears to be trading... More

Had the pleasure of staying at Raffles Singapore. Was definitely a Very beautiful facade. We were in the Rudyard Kipling suite, which in my opinion could have done with some simple modernisation. The only other negative was the vibration of the floor and bed in the room coming from an ac unit from the function room below. It did take... More

This hotel lived up to its reputation. Old world style with new world facilities, attentive and friendly staff, elegant rooms. Just loved it - and a bonus was that whilst staying there this month, celebrations started for the 100th birthday of the Singapore Sling, that delicious cocktail that was invented here in the Long Bar. Initially created for the British... More
