Where the original Singapore Sling was allegedly created. Raffles bar as a very distinct vintage look about it, which, appears to have been persevered very well by the owners. You go into the first floor bar, and are able to sit inside or just outside. The drinks are reasonably priced but it is very dark inside. While you wait you... More

Dear Simon Hirst (General Manager) My wife and I have just returned to Kuala Lumpur after celebrating my wife's 60th Birthday in "her special place" as she calls it. I must say, again you and your team have sprinkled the magic Raffles dust. It was a truly amazing stay and your team excelled in every aspect. Starting with the Bentley... More

What is with the haters? This hotel is just so special. The main building interior, furniture and ambience is sensational. The service could not be beat. Everyone was so friendly and hospitable. The staff even came out to say goodbye when we left after three nights. As for the buffet breakfast...just wow! There was this 2 page menu with about... More

Stayed here for 4 days is like lived far from busy world. Tea time here, in the afternoons, are the nicest times I ever experienced. This hotel has unique lay-out, nice menus and amiable helpful staffs.

Visiting Raffles was like being transported back in time to the 19th century. It was an infusion of architecture, culture and history. The Long Bar was amazing where we experienced the Singapore Slings and the traditional peanuts! A truly wonderful experience.

Stepping through the doors of the iconic Raffles Hotel is like taking a wonderful leap back in time. Every corridor and courtyard is impeccably presented and oozing old world charm. We commenced our afternoon with high tea, gorging ourselves on scrumptiously delicious treats. Dumplings, cakes, scones and other decadent morsels were all incredibly tasty and the service was excellent. Amongst... More

Before I mention my bad experience, let me start with the good ones. When we arrived in the hotel, we were greeted by Bong and he was very accommodating with our request. Also, upon check-out, Alvaro assisted us and he was very kind to bring us to the restaurant where we made our lunch reservation. He told us where are... More

I suppose it is pretty cliche to say you have always wanted to stay at Raffles in Singapore and drink Singapore Slings. But that was what we did, and I am glad we did. There may be newer, brighter, trendier places to stay, but there is something about this place that will always bring back sentimental memories for me of... More

the hotel is, as you might imagine, a picture of colonial elegance, but in my opinion is need of some updating. but it could be that the history is the appeal, and so the fact that the rooms havent changed for 30 years is all part of the experience. we stayed in a courtyard suite. this was the big disappointment...
