This hotel is a part of Singapore’s history. Declared as a National Monument, Raffles is a fabulous old colonial style place which has been visited by many dignitaries and celebrities (you can find a lot of their pictures in the corridors).
The service of this hotel is absolutely OUTSTANDING. I think best of the hotels I’ve been so far all over the world. Very personalized attention to all the details of your stay and needs you may have.
Also food was delicious. Many people around to serve you in a breakfast room, great diner buffet
NOTE: Don’t expect a high tech technology or equipment here. Also the bathroom is not an old style only- it’s just quite old indeed. The gym and a swimming pool are both small, BUT if you bare it in mind, and don’t expect it will be different than that, I’m sure you will be very happy with your stay there. It’s a unique place with a very special atmosphere, beautiful old style character and the best service you can get.
Ps. By the way- how many hotels have you noticed being treated as a tourist attraction? …and this one definitely IS such a place- people who can’t afford to stay at, come to visit at least to take a picture and have a coffee there.
