This was our second visit to Raffles and like the first time we were overwhelmed by the whole experience. The hotel itself is of course iconic and the rooms although reminiscent of a by-gone era have adapted to provide all the luxuries and conveniences one expects from a Raffles Hotel. However, it is the staff that makes this a truly... More

This is somewhere that everyone should stay, even if it is only for two nights. Yes it is expensive, but you only do this once in your life. Staff were friendly and helpful. There is a very oldy worldly charm about it which should never be changed.

Think opulence but with little of its historic grandeur remaining. The place was gutted 20-or-so years ago with just the exterior left intact. It retained something of its grandeur though and had a nice museum dedicated to its past included in the makeover. However, the museum was closed in 2013 - in the owner's quest to squeeze more money out... More

We received two complimentary nights stays from our wedding banquet. We are extremely surprised to receive a bottle of complimentary champagne as well on the second night, just in time to celebrate with our guests when they visited us. We will definitely consider coming back for our anniversary.

One of the best hotels I have stayed at anywhere in the world. Although the tariff is relatively high, many extras are included, such as room service breakfast, unlimited bottles of mineral water, fresh fruit every day, early morning cup of tea, and excellent wi-fi. So, good value overall.

Even though this hotel stands in the middle of a busy part of Singapore surrounded by museums, shops, eateries galore, the moment you step through its front doors, you are transported to a world and time long gone. Even though I live in Singapore, I've never stayed here before and my wife and I stayed here just for a night... More

Hotel never fails - History,elegance and superb service all rolled in to one. Old fashioned modern amenities - if you are looking for ultra modern anything then look elsewhere. This is the place for style and comfort.

Enjoyed walking around the... More

As a citizen, one constantly walks by it, but never really walks in, save for the shopping arcades. However, I had the chance to experience it for myself for my 30th birthday, and boy did it live up to everything I had expected and then some. Truly deserving of it's iconic place in the hearts of Singaporeans, not to mention,... More
