There has always been something appealing genuinely old works about staying at Raffles. If you like shiny new chain hotels, then this is not for you, but Raffles takes you back to the era where travelling was an adventure. The hotel is a magnificent calm oasis in the bustling heart of Singapore. The staff have always been good at Raffles... More

This is my 4th stay at Raffles - it never disappoints. If you like a contemporary modern place - Raffles is not the place - however that is not why people come here. At Raffles you still get the right colonial atmosphere and the service is excellent. Just walk around the hotel - sit in the gardens and enjoy. My... More

Very nice hotel. Especially the live chorus sing Christmas carols was nice this time of year. We had the Presidential suite, costs a load of money, but we loved it (the kids liked to enter the main entrance of the room and exit on the back-end, come 20 meters further in the main hall). Private Butler was super friendly and... More

We opted for the Raffles Hotel while for 3 days – 2 nights in Singapore. History and the atmosphere draw us in. We stayed at a Courtyard suite. Nights rest was good and so the room. The second TV at the dining area was not functioning and the AC did its own thing in room 105.It was a terrible temperature... More

Overall very old - building, facilities, old-fashioned rooms smelling like mold with terrible amenities, and pretty wracked areas - if you like that classic historical vibe, you'll like it. The atmosphere is great and Singaporean history can be surely found here. If you want to escape from the modern buildings and artificial shopping center city, this is the place to... More

A weekend in Singapore at Raffles was heaven on earth. We stayed in a courtyard suite in the middle of the hotel. It wasn't the luxury of the rooms, nor the sheer beauty of the colonial setting, the character doorman, the sparkling white iconic facade, it was the attention to detail by staff. Right down to putting Australian electricity adapters... More

We booked 2 nights at the Raffles Hotel as we were having our wedding reception at Halia (a restaurant there). I had checked in first on Friday afternoon, and was told my husband had to check in again when he came later. When he did that, he was not given a room key and we had to ask for it... More

We only visited the Long Bar within the Raffles Hotel to sample the famous Singapore Sling cocktail. We were lucky that the place was not too busy when we visited but on leaving people were queuing to get in. The service was excellent, the cocktail lovely but it worked out at roughly £19 per drink, pricey, although the monkey nuts... More

The hotel is beautiful and the staff are excellent - everyone we met was professional, helpful and just perfect. But the afternoon tea is disappointing and nothing like the value and choice you get at many other hotels in Singapore. For $58++ we got 15 little sandwiches (replenished on demand), 9 cakes and 9 tiny biscuits. The buffet has tiny... More
