Well, where else would you go if you wanted a Singapore Sling... The bar breathes colonial something... not really sure it is elegance or history, more staged decline, and boy do they know how to charge... Alas the bar has been moved since the days of Ernest Hemingway and Somerset Maugham!

What an incredible greeting. To be "in residence" at Raffles is one of life's great treats. This hotel surpasses any best hotel listing. It is a pleasure... More

Wonderful intimate and homey place to come back to. Despite being not very small, they make it feel very personal and homey. We didn't run into too many other guests when we didn't want to. It was great! The staff is truly amazing; they made the entire stay for us!

I didn't actually stay here, couldn't afford it lol, but l had a Singapore Sling in the Long bar and was treated like royalty. Beautiful hotel with a lot of history, maybe one day l will be fortunate enough to stay here. You can walk around its shops and grounds even if you are not staying there.

Really enjoyed doing the typical tourist trip to long bar- felt very sophisticated for student backpackers sipping on a Singapore sling! Atmosphere was great- loved the live band and the staff super friendly. A must do for any first time visit to Singapore!

Stayed here for 2 nights wished it had been longer. Staff could not do enough for you, always polite. The room was very large and spotless, the bathroom was excellent very well equipped. You must have is a Singapore sling in the long bar, and the historic tour of the hotel.
