Lived up to expectations

Back in Singapore after a 25 year absence. How the place has changed is amazing. We stayed at Raffles Hotel for 4 nights at the start of our 4 week tour of the Far East. We were not disappointed. The original Raffles built a century ago was demolished and rebuilt about 20 years ago. Its very... read more

Enjoyed a quick visit to see the Raffles Hotel, with lovely grounds, and the long bar for a traditional Singapore Sling. In an older section of the city.

We went to the iconic Raffles Hotel for the signature drink, Singapore Sling. This is the home of the drink. We went to The Long Bar because it was open for casual attire. If you want to go to other places at the hotel you need smart casual or better attire. We enjoyed an appetizer along with the free peanuts.... More

We chose the Raffles because of it's storied history. This was our first visit to Singapore and wanted to stay at this iconic hotel. The building is so beautiful, the lobby is stunning and brings you back to a colonial time with marble floors, beautiful chandeliers and staircases. The handsome Sihk doormen are dignified and set the tone for your... More

What can you say about Raffles?,it is a Hotel reeked in history and atmosphere. We stayed (3) nights in (2) rooms and loved every moment of it.The service is top class and we have nothing but praise for the establishment. The tariff is not cheap, but highly recommended for a once in a lifetime visit. It was on my bucket... More

My companion and I stayed here again and we treated with an upgrade...to the Presidential Suite no less which was truly magnificent. It was a shame that we could not utilise the 12 seat dining room but we did relish the immense balcony, luxuriant lounge room and each with our own bathroom. Was good to see the hotel had finally...

We knew it would be expensive but in reality it was s lovely experience to enjoy the Sling in the Long Bar amongst the money nut shells on the floor and it was worth it, to see the ceiling fans and see everyone enjoying their experience was good fun, a had to be done experience.

Super experience in a stunning location. A great "sling" we had the genuine one--- the very over priced one at 32$ each. But what do you expect. It was still an experience and as a one off worth it. Seemed weird with everyone doing a selfie.

Having read over the years of Raffles and the Long Bar it was a must to see and of course to sample their Singapore Sling. In the event I suspect that we were the best dressed guests and unsurprisingly it was very noisy and a bit 'touristy' in terms of clientele however the monkey nut shells on the floor tradition...
