A trip to Singapore wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Raffles for a Singapore Sling. However, the hotel itself is still under refurbishment so anyone hoping to get photos other than of the long bar will be disappointed.

Well....what cam I say, a trip to Singapore wouldn't be complete without a visit to Raffles Hotel. We headed for the Long Bar and Singapore Slings :) Nice relaxing atmosphere and great service. Recommended

Disappointed that the refurbishments are running behind. If it's on your list to visit check with the web site. Some companies were still running trips in December 2018

Raffles hotel is an icon, luxury at its best, but be prepared for a huge bill if staying there. Afternoon tea is wonderful so much to choose from. Worth a look around.

Historic and yet modern Raffles Hotel is a beautiful building seemingly untouched by time. It brings back a nostalgic look into the time when Britain ruled most of the civilized world and men and women got dressed up just to have dinner or a drink....More

The old Singapore lives in the feel and ambiance of the Raffles. Have a drink in the Raffles Bar or even better stay and dine there.

A must do when in Singapore. Drinks very expensive but that is what you expect and it is mostly a once only visit.

We stayed next door and could look down on this. When I first looked i had no idea it was the iconic Raflles, Form above it looks dreadful and I cant’ see it opening anytime soon

You are actually asking the question of TripAdvisor volunteers rather than the hotel. I can't link to the website as this system does not accept links.... but having googled Raffles I can tell you that the official word is... More
