The experience was really grate. I enjoyed every minute at this historic hotel. The rooms were beautifully decorated, the staff polite and frendly, the atmosphere exceptional, the food delicious and the cocktails at the bar unforgettable. A stylish traditional hotel highly recommended.

Beautiful colonial style stating for my $30 Singapore sling, possibly a tad expensive, however enjoyable, monkey nuts on the bar with the shells on the floor which almost seemed quite naughty. Great staff and service.

We had a wonderful weekend at this iconic hotel in Singapore and consider ourselves all the better for having experienced this unique hospitality. It is not cheap but worth every cent. Beautiful rooms and exceptional staff who really seem to enjoy working in this venue. Keeping the older 'colonial' furnishings and customs makes you feel as if you are in... More

My husband and I along with our then 15 month old daughter decided to stay here on Christmas night as we weren't able to get home to Australia for the holidays. We booked the buffet lunch in the billiard room... What a treat the food was delicious! It was certainly traditional Western style which was nice and the staff and... More

Chauffeur driven Bentley ride from the airport –what a way to arrive, with the doors being opened by a large and smiling be-turbaned doorman (but we did think the driver could have done with some proper chauffeur training –we had smoother taxi drivers…..) –I was fascinated by their subtle waist high hand signals as they ushered taxis in and waved...

An iconic hotel with lovely staff, as one would expect some parts are expensive. The rooms are colonial which is as they should be, the breakfast excellent. There are options for eating plus the courtyard is a pleasant place for a drink away from the tourists in the long bar! Plus a fantastic roof top pool to escape from the... More

The hotel,looks lovely with beautiful grounds and non guests can wander around. The famous Long Bar is a Singapore must see, but getting a drink there is a challenge. We were greeted and seated; we waited, we waited, w,e got bored, we waited. We watched two waiters slow mo about. We waited. Others waited. The only people who did not... More

Great property and comfortable stay, a little overpriced because of the name but still worth it if you are only in Singapore for a few days. Lobby is very nice but the shops and restaurants onsite aren't that appealing. Stay there but eat elsewhere. Iconic property and would go back.

We stayed at Raffles from 21 to 24 December 2014 room 209. We have stayed at Raffles in Dubai, Paris and in Istanbul so our expectations were high - we had heard Singapore Raffles was the Mother Ship! Raffles in Singapore is steeped in history and a visit to Singapore would not be complete without visiting this established landmark. Indeed... More

This hotel must rate as one of the best hotels in the world, we had a junior suite with a butler, what a lovely way to live! We lived in Singapore 10 years ago visited the long bar many times but always said when we came back we would stay in Raffles, we were not disappointed!
