We stayed at Raffles in Singapore for a special occasion at the end of July/early August. We chose Emirates which was the perfect way to get there. On arrival we were greeted by a true gentleman who invited us to sit in the magnificent reception area whilst the desk processed our check in. Our room or suite really was located... More

Raffles did not disappoint. High expectations of the long bar were met. We sat for about 3 hours munching nuts, eating nibbles & drinking Singapore slings. Very relaxed & family friendly. Highlight of our time in Singapore & great family time playing cards & having fun. A must do experience.

My friend and I thought this was overrated ! It stated on the booking to dress smart no flip flops, but when we went, there was women in flipflops and scruffy dressed men. The cakes were not that good either. Afternoon tea at the ritz in London is far better ! We then went into the long bar to have... More

Well the Long Room Bar is exceptional with its history and decor, oh if only the walls could talk. The intricate overhead fan system is great to get mesmerized by and the peanut shells on the floor were a big hit with my 18 month old Augustus. Drinks are a bit pricey but hey people will come and people will... More

From a distance the Raffles looks beautiful, but when you get up close. It's tired and in need of refurb! High tea was lovely & service was impeccable, but I was less than impressed by the price of their iconic Singapore Sling. My glass was cracked so returned it, but for 31 sing dollars. I would expect it on a... More

We were welcomed with our two young kids (4 & 6) and had a lovely suite. We have stayed at most of the historically significant hotels in the region, Peninsula, Peace, E&O, to name a few, and I found the Raffles to be in incredible condition. They maintain the antique fixtures, door knobs, bath fixtures, but with feeling like the... More

Raffles is an icon and I was expecting a pretty swanky place, but it was even more impressive than I had imagined. From the minute we crossed the threshold the staff did everything possible to make our stay comfortable and effortless. Our every need was anticipated and every request was fulfilled. The buildings were beautiful and everything was kept immaculately;... More

The Raffles Hotel is recommended quite often as a must do for Singapore but I don't agree with that. It was a nice building in historical colonial style and a good atmosphere but in my opinion it was not worth to go there. Singapore Sling at Raffles Long Bar is good but you pay around 36$ and that's definitely too... More

Dear Esteemed Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. While majority of travellers from around the world enjoy visiting Long Bar and view it as a rite of passage when in Singapore, it is regrettable to know that you feel otherwise. The Singapore Sling was first concocted in 1915 at Long Bar, and is... More

Had to go for a Sinapore Sling while visiting the city but while here tried the food. Excellent bar snacks and a great experience soaking up the atmosphere of a real diamond in Singapore. I was not disappointed with this visit and teenagers felt very comfortable sharing nachos here while Mum and Dad had a cocktail. As far as I... More

We were in Bali on a holiday and there was a 3 day work conference course in Singapore for my partner and because we were so close he decided to attend. We had heard about Raffles, but then again who hasn't? This hotel is legendary. When we arrived we were even more impressed as the white colonial building is even... More
