Obviously the most famous and oldest hotel in Singapore is a must visit for the famous and delicious Singapore Sling, gift shop also very good.

Just every thing you expect it to be, fabulous environment, great outside bar and staff, didn't stay at the hotel but certainly sampled what was left. The shop is great for souvenirs too.

Beautiful old building. Look and explore the grounds but don’t fall for buying the iconic Singapore Sling, $40 later and tasteless peanuts.

Worth coming to (once) but disappointing that the Sling seems to be made and bottled before. Appreciate the efficiency but at over S$30 a drink the personal touch is something to be encouraged. We did have 2 each mind. The place is under repair/renovation until...More

Recommend to visit the beautiful and fancy Raffles Hotel (still under repair) to enjoy an original Singapore Sling. You are allowed to throw the nut shells on the floor as in the old days. A Singapore Sling costs 31 dollars, which is a bit expensive,...More
