4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Great hotel, a time capsule to the past and beautiful atmosphere. Unfortunately, some of the signs in the hotel yard explaining the history of Singapore Sling give the feeling of Disney Land. If they disappeared I would give five stars as service and food are great.

We visited for drinks one October a few years back during a short tour around Asia. The bar is everything you'd expect with the property a throw-back to colonial times. Of course we had the Singapore Sling, which was rather nice. The seating was a bit uncomfortable and one of our colleague's stool snapped as he fell to the floor.... More

What to say. The hotel is a beautifully restored icon of an era long gone. It is beautiful a must see. And of course a must is the iconic Singapore Sling. Visit the Long bar but mind all the peanut shells on the floor. Shop through all the shops till you drop.

Visited from 19th to 24th August, surely this has to be one of the finest, if not the finest hotel. The building and the facilities are excellent, the staff are friendly, the attention to detail exemplary. Nothing is too much trouble, and the history of the place pervades almost all aspects of the property. The Long Bar is a must... More

Fantastic location, brillian decor and amazing ambience! A must for all travellers to Singapore. Like going back in time. The Singapore Slings were the best I have ever had. I visit here on every trip to Singapore as I never tire of it. Staff are very friendly and helpful too!

My mother took me here for her 75th birthday, and we stayed for a week. The quality of the hotel is fantastic, with large beautiful rooms and really nice furniture. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast buffet, the service was exceptional. While we were there the had a charity auction and I purchased a silk rug, which the hotel staff then... More

We stayed for 3 nights as a special occasion. It is a special place steep in history, quiet and sophisticated and a real contrast to the flashing and somewhat chaotic tourism of the Marina Bay Area. Staying here as a guest is a great experience and the staff do go out of their way to make you feel special, more... More

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.
