Ascott Raffles Place Singapore

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 7, 2011

This is a hotel I often stay at for a night or two - although I think it is particularly well suited (in the right room) for a longer stay (a week or so). This is a relatively recently renovated building (colonial style, previously offices) with typically very large rooms having plenty of character. Facilities are excellent - I have been upgraded several times into suites with great kitchens, lounge-rooms and views, but all but one of the standard rooms I have stayed in have been great value and more than adequate. The restaurant (for lunch, room service and dinner) is fairly average and quite expensive - but there are plenty of great food options nearby. Staff are efficient and professional, but this does not come across as a 'home away from home' from a staff perspective (as some other Ascott Group properties do). I haven't stayed here with my family, but I would seriously consider it - not too heavily a business hotel, and very well located.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at a high level looking out towards the bay

We stayed only one night on a last minute deal. We had flown from Europe so needed to rest. It was perfect. Very quiet, comfortable and excellent service consistent with rating. Breakfast was very adequate and we were given a late check out with no fee. All in all, location, the price we paid, and the quality of service means I would look to return here without any doubt.

My partner and I were most impressed by the hotel and will definitely stay there next time we are in Singapore. The staff were polite & helpful and the facilities were far better than expected. The hotel appeared to have been recently renovated which meant everything was nice, clean and modern. The rooms were much bigger and better equipped than what I am accustomed too when travelling in Asia. If for nothing else the hotel is worth staying at just for the rooftop glass wall pool and relax area.

Away from the inside of the hotel, the location could not have been better with a large subway/train station close by and a well-known cab rank outside - meaning the cab drivers knew where it was when coming home. Plenty of restaurants/bars within walking distance also.

My family and I definitely had an enjoyable stay here. We stayed in a 2-bedroom executive residence, features a separate living area, dining area, a kitchen, 2 bedrooms and elegant marble bathrooms. Generally, a cozy stylish room with well furnished amenities and excellent beds(one of the most comfortable I have slept in). The hotel high floors gave us an awesome birds eye view of a large area of CBD. The staff were excellent especially the concierge who provided top advice when asked. This hotel is ideally located in the heart of CBD and Raffles Place MRT is literally right at the doorstep. It’s superb location well within walking distance for most attractions places for walkers. I would therefore highly recommend Ascott Singapore Raffles Place for both long and short-stays!

The building has historical story - tallest building in Singapore in 1950
Very nice swimming pool/infinity
Jacuzzi is at the rooftop which is ideal for sun bathing ( for some)
The room is so huge where you can cook your food etc as the room is fully furnished with cookery and cutlery
Nice bed

i stayed in this hotel for 3 weeks for work. the hotel was incredible. i stayed in a junior suite with 2 beds that was very large. the room i was in had a view of the marina which was nice. the rooms were nice and quiet. the bathrooms are incredibly large. all of the appliances were high end. great washer/dryer, dishwasher. i cant say enough about the hotel staff. i was always greeted warmly and they offered to carry anything i bought to the hotel. they were very helpful in catching cabs. catching cabs in singapore can be a little daunting. the staff was also helpful with anything and everything. i booked a weekend trip to thailand and they were so helpful with that. also they booked trips to all the amusements in singapore which saved a lot of time. my college aged son stayed with me for 2 weeks and they were very nice to him. since i had to work they helped him with booking excursions while i was out to work. the hotel is 2 blocks away from lon pat sat which you can find any food you want. try the spicy crab. like one of the posters said they dont have room service but that is my only complaint. the rooms were promptly cleaned. they even washed the few dishes that we had left in the sink. the one thing that i loved was the professionalism of the staff and their warmness. it made my 3 weeks there enjoyable. the mrt was right around the corner. special thanks to jv. he was incredible. i would recommend this hotel to anyone.
