My wife and I had our wedding dinner a year ago and we were lucky enough to stay for 2 nights. Everything was perfect from the wedding dinner right to our stay after. Service was impeccable! We were so happy with Raffles Hotel that we went back this weekend to celebrate our first wedding anniversary in this fabulous place again!... More

We were staying at a nearby hotel and we decided we had to do the typical tourist thing and have a Singapore Sling at Raffles. On our first visit the Long Bar was packed so we went to one of the bars in the courtyard and had a beer. We browsed the shops and the surrounds which were all very... More

This is a magnificent hotel with its glory history. The main building, courtyard and garden are very beautiful. Their restaurants and bars are great. The room is well preserved with its old fashion. The maintenance of the old hotel may be tough. I experienced interruption of power of my room during my stay. Except this, the overall stay is pleasant.... More

We visited Raffles in Singapore to experience the Singapore Sling at the Long Bar. The peanut shells on the floor the ceiling fans both added to atmosphere of Singapore tradition. We did have some great shrimp spring rolls with our Slings. They were quite good. A little expensive, but hey it was a check off on the bucket list. Had... More

You will be able to find cheaper, but not better, service anywhere! The staff were outstanding with their friendly and helpful service at every level. I have stayed in hotels all over the world, but this was the finest friendliest most efficient I have ever know. Uniquely excellent service and a terrific building too.

restaurant, high tea excellent with harpist, wonderful food. Definitely do the high tea. Must try the Singapore sling in the upstairs bar. Hotel is beautiful, grounds superb. Shops in the arcade area wonderful. Can be pricey but worth the time to visit even if you don't purchase. Am a fan of Jim Thompson and the shop has a wide variety... More

We didn't stay overnight but of course had to have a cocktail in Raffles Bar here as part of the whole Singapore experience. Throwing your shells from your nuts onto the ground took getting used to but seems to be part of the tradition! Of course it's not cheap but it was still worth going here. The building is spectacular... More

I was very fortunate to stay in this hotel during my business meeting back in Feb. The hotel was very nice and impressed me a lot with the design and the art piece and the service standard. I remember the time while sitting in the terrace and being served with a cup of coffee by your personal butler. Long bar... More

As part of the planning process for our trip down under the decision had to be made, where to have our first stop over, no prizes for guessing, it had to be Raffles at Singapore. A stay here has been on our "to do list" for a very long time. Having booked our courtyard suite as part of our trip,... More
