Singapore Sling at the bar area - a must

the old colonian style well kept - and the drink was served chilled and fine. The prize was +, but that was expected.

Yes, we all go to Raffles for a Singapore Sling in the Long Bar but I was advised to go for breakfast. What great advice and what an amazing breakfast. Open to non-residents, even if you are staying somewhere economical you can splurge out and enjoy one of the largest buffet breakfasts I have ever seen. There is something rather... More

This was the highlight of my tour in Singapore. I have wanted to visit Raffles for ages. I was not disappointed. The grounds were fabulous, just like I was expecting. The building was perfect, all very clean. We chose to have lunch in the Longbar, home of the Singapore Sling. Of course I had one, delicious, albeit expensive, but we... More

Any visit to Singapore is not complete without visiting the Raffles Hotel. Enjoy the splendour of old Singapore and when you head to the 2nd level and enter the Long Bar, you would forget that this is 2016. Every decor and even the manual mechanical looking fan that brings you back to colonial Singapore. This is the only place in... More

We went in there one night for clubbing. The view from the room top is so amazing that we can see the entire stretch of Singapore in one go. The night lights and panaromic view is just so fantastic that we forgot to enjoy at the club dancing.

The high tea in the tiffin room is really expensive but worth it just for the experience and surroundings alone. Do go into the Long Room and have a Singapore Sling don't be put off by people saying it is a tourist trap, where else can you throw peanut shells on the floor and receive impeccable service?

The hotel is beautiful. A historic piece of architecture. Unfortunately very touristy now. Went to the Long Bar. It's quaint but overpriced. The shops are very expensive.

If you are looking to get a taste of colonial Singapore, then a visit to the Long Bar at Raffles Hotel is the place to go. The whitewashed architecture, draped in lush greenery is beautiful and welcoming, and as you first enter the bar you feel transported to another day. The one caveat--it is swamped with tourists who are seeking... More
