We had an amazing experience at the Raffles the staff members are extremely friendly. The rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable which is important, also have Dyson blow dryers . We loved the breakfast and the fresh juice was delightful!! The concierge team was helpful with hotel reservations and making sure we never had to stand in the VERY long lines for the Long Bar. The hotel is a tourist stop for pictures and the staff does a great job of keeping the hotel guests the priority and keep visitors from entering past the hotel lobby. I would definitely recommend this hotel not only for its history but its beauty. Love the touch that they name the rooms after the famous stars and royalty that have stayed. Walked by John Wayne’s room on my way to the coffee shop. Check out the hall of fame hallway!!

Hotel's Favorite
Our stay at Raffles was all that we hoped it would be. Our suite was luxurious, particularly the bathroom with its inlaid marble floor which was absolutely stunning. No attention to detail had been spared - there was even a pillow for the bath. The staff were all so friendly and made us feel very welcome. Particular mention should be given to Roslee Sukar, the hotel's resident historian, who took us on a guided tour of the hotel. Roslee's enthusiasm for Raffles shone through and we would recommend anyone staying at Raffles to take the tour with Roslee. Our suite came with its own butlers, Reena and Thyra, who left me a lovely card, balloons and a little birthday cake for my birthday which was a lovely touch. The breakfast buffet was excellent. We enjoyed drinks in the Long Bar and the Writers Bar and had a lovely dinner at the Chinese restaturant, Yi by Jereme Leung. Everything about Raffles was luxurious. Obviously, all this comes at a cost, but we felt it was worth it for the experience we had.

From the very first second, on pick up at the airport, to the last moment of saying goodbye on departure, this was the most perfect stay at Raffles. The whole experience was truly wonderful; the stunning rooms, the main guest area, restaurants, grounds and every member of staff was fantastic. The attention to detail was beyond anything I've ever experienced in a hotel previously and the whole experience was out of this world!

Fantastic hotel. We had two visits to Singapore recently and each time we visited Raffles. First time we went to The Long Bar for Singapore Slings, there was a small queue but only for 10 minutes or so. Worth the wait and the expense. Our Slings were one traditional and one a teatotal sling, very nice. A very enjoyable experience, one we'll definitely do again. Our second visit was for afternoon tea which was very nice. Good selection of tea. Really nice sandwiches, cakes and we got 3 scones each, it was all extremely good. There's a lovely atmosphere, a lady playing the harp. Very nice polite professional staff. It was a wonderful experience and one we will never forget. Raffles also have a boutique where they sell souvenirs including Sling glasses of which we purchased quite a few.

One of the best hotel experiences I have ever had. Our number one hotel is the Ritz in Paris, but the Raffles Singapore is a very close second. We arrived from California at 5:45 am, and despite the fact that check in was 3 pm, the front desk was able to get us into our room a hour later. Very much appreciated after a 16 hour flight. The lobby is amazing. Huge, clean, impressive. While we were waiting for our room we had breakfast at Tiffin. It was amazing. Wonderful fruit, fantastic eggs benedict, and great service. After breakfast we were taken to our room. Huge room, high ceilings, very clean, and personalized note with bottle of wine and chocolates for our honeymoon. Later, we went to Long Bar to try the famous Singapore Sling. There was a long line to get in, but as quests of the hotel, we were able to walk right in. Drinks we great, and throwing peanut shells on the floor was a different experience. We had dinner in the Raffles Courtyard, again, great food and service. Singapore is an amazing city, we will be back, and when we do, we will be staying at the Raffles. It is significantly more expensive than the Ritz Carlton or the Four Seasons, but we tried the Ritz on our way back from the Maldives, and the Raffles is so much better. Better food, much better room, better amenities, and substantially better service. Bite the bullet and stay at the Raffles, it is truly an iconic experience.

What an amazing historical place, everything is a delight, the room, the toiletries, the dining options and the service - unsurpassed. Breakfast in bed was PERFECT and the harpist in the foyer tear jerkingly sublime. If anyone found something to grumble about here then, they must be mad!

The most phenomenal place we’ve stayed as a family by far! To me, Raffles is far more iconic than Marina Bay Sands and I cannot wait to go back. If you are wanting a more unique experience, I cannot recommend Raffles enough. You are immersed in history and opulence the moment you step foot into Raffles. Exceptional service from all staff and nothing to fault. The fact that staff took notice of my son’s interest (drawing and colouring) and were kind enough to leave him a surprise with Raffles branded gifts of colouring book and pencils was so kind and very much appreciated. Rooms - very clean, spacious and lay - out is perfect. Living room is separate from bedroom which is convenient. Bathroom is exceptional - marble , toilet and shower separated a detail we appreciated. The cleanliness of room was to standard. Food - we enjoyed the breakfast buffet and restaurant. Facilities- the pool is decent and enjoyable. The bars and stores located within complex means you don’t have to venture out too much unless you want to do a lot of shopping! Thank you to everyone at Raffles, we cannot wait to stay with you again!

We dropped in to get our souvenirs. Well worth a wander. You need to book for high tea, so we settled for the Singapore cafe and shared some delicious cakes and kopi. It is a lovely grand place, with modern buildings now its backdrop. The coffee shop staff were friendly and helpful.

Fulfilled a long held ambition by spending a couple of nights in this iconic hotel. Checking in was straight forward & carried out in our suite , The room was spacious with a luxurious bathroom . Very comfortable bed. We had a large balcony area overlooking a tree lined courtyard. Breakfast service was patchy. Had to chase up my husband’s grapefruit juice & fresh cutlery wasn’t supplied for my second course so had to reuse the originals Got back to the hotel around 8.45pm & asked which hotel restaurants were open . Reception advised we would have to go back outside & walk along the pavement to access The Courtyard restaurant. Really didn’t feel like having to go back out on the street so we settled for some bar snacks in the Writer’s bar. The same directions were given when we wanted to go for a drink at the Long Bar - at our pre booked table. On our last morning we wandered round the grounds & found that both the above mentioned facilities could be accessed from within the hotel . Why would a hotel of this stature send its residents out onto the street when they could remain within the confines of the hotel ?? Loved the Pool area & bar. Clarence treated us like royalty. We had an issue with 2 young girls filming & photographing us incessantly, there were also young children present in the pool. We brought it to Clarence’s attention & a manager promptly appeared & persuaded the young ladies to refrain from filming the guests. I did get the feeling that the building is as much of a tourist attraction as a hotel but our stay didn’t disappoint.
