If you expect an old-world-charm palace, I’ll be disappointed. Lobby and Writer’s bar only conform to that standard.
in a new wing (called business class or so) is very fine, but has no character which may be associated with Raffles name. In any standard 5* hotel, that room would be probably called suite: separate sleeping and living areas are extra convenient. Some nice bamboo decoration objects adorn the scene.
I checked room in an old wing – it was much smaller and has not much character as well. Probably the hotel had gone through too many renovations.
for breakfast was ok. Eggs Benedict were done on order although they were not on menu. Staff attendant tried to stop me from taking an apple and banana out of breakfast room, which I value as complete services nonsense in 5* deluxe property which Raffles claim they shall be.
Right in the beginning of One-Food-Zing (Wan-Fud-Jing) pedestrian street, very central and comfy.
Rooms with “inner yard” view face concrete wall dotted with windows. If you prefer a little bit of space in front, insist on “outer street” view. Non-smokers must take non-smoking floor only. Strong tobacco stench can be found even inside bathroom.
