The hotel is closed for complete reconstruction. It will open again at the end of 2018. Currently around the hotel there is a wall and is not visible anymore.

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.

We travelled to Singapore late December. Raffles is closed until August 2018. Interestingly, no one seems to know this despite conversation with a few local people, Very disappointing to walk there on a hot day to find the place shut up and barricaded with partitions...More

As the iconic Raffles Hotel is closed for yet more renovation until August 2018, the Arcade is closed off too, but the one redeeming feature is that the Raffles Shop has been kept open at 3, Seah Street, so most souvenirs can still be obtained,...More

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
