This was our second stay and it was as wonderful as the first. Every staff was extremely polite and provided excellent service. The suite had old world charm yet was very well maintained. Only disappointment was not finding any tea in the room even though there was a coffee machine, kettle and even teapot ! As it was already past... More

Beautiful hotel, classic old style decor, and very charming indeed. Very central location, and staff members were all friendly and lovely! There were a few things that were broken when we visited the hotel - the door lock, butler bell, and the hairdryer. We requested for the door key/lock to be fixed twice, but unfortunately was not attended to until... More

I'm glad my husband convinced me to stop by this spot; It feels like something out of a movie; a classic that is at the same time exotic [well, for me at least]. We did not stay over just did a self walking tour the downstairs and courtyards, restaurant,bar and shoppes are open to public access. We took lots of... More

Old-style charm, but very touristy. Not sure I saw anyone who was an actual guest, but the tourists in the bar were having a nice time. We shopped in the gift shop and got some nice things. The attendants at the drive-way entrance to the hotel looked magnificent in their uniforms.

Our first time in Singapore and of course Raffles was top of our list. And of course The Long Room for our "few Singapore slings" it was amazing and the staff were great as people always asking them to take photos. The decor just everything in there was fabulous. BUT when we arrived and the doorman opened our car door... More

Raffles Singapore is the grand old lady of the city, still as beautiful as ever and a pleasure to come to. The staff are delightful, the pool area is excellent and the common areas are lovely. If you can come here, you should, it's not cheap but it is fantastic. One small comment would be that. The restaurants are a... More

Out of this world luxury. Like you have been taken back 100 years! The staff are phonemal! Service and facilities amazing. Shops, restaurants, spa and pool. The suites are stunning. I struggled to leave the iconic Noel Howard suite. My tips would be: Singapore Sling and Afternoon Tea are a must!!!
