I have stayed here on two previous occasions, three years ago & five years ago, it is still without doubt one of the better hotels of character, and the way prices in Singapore are going it is no longer one of the more expensive. It still has outstanding service from all the friendly, efficient and helpful staff, the accomodation is perfect, the hotel is ideally situated for the city and close to the metro.
But I have a feeling that now the 'Raffles' name is a somewhat global brand, with hotels all over the place, there is a clear indication that the "accountants" are running the hotel, all the nice little extras have gone. In a hotel with this reputation and price range the toothbrushes, toothpast, razors, shaving cream have all disapeared in the bathrooms (and yet are still given in lesser establishments) even the shower gel, shampoo, conditioner etc are down to one small container in a double/twin room.
Clients expect such essentials at these prices, it's not what it was!
