My stay in Raffles hotel was a once in a lifetime experience. We were greeted by the doorman and were catered for personally throughout the trip. We had a suite which was stunningly, timelessly decorated. The experience was second to none, with faultless service, wonderful food (at the Raffles grill), and an incredible atmosphere. Thank you Raffles.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 18 November 2016

The service is so superb it would take many pages to detail its various delights, it needs to be experienced rather than written about, but I would make a few points to assist potential guests. The base level room (Courtyard) is a true suite with a separate dinning/leisure area, a very large comfortable bedroom and large bathroom with double vanities...

One to tick of on the list of things done. A really pleasant evening. Being the first time of trying a singapore sling wasnt disappointed, yes it's a little bit expensive but it doesnt happen often. Staff were friendly, drinks served quickly. Nice to view the old decor and imagine times gone bye. Will certainly visit again if in Singapore

I have been returning to Raffles Hotel for over 60 years and each year it really is memorable experience. The two Doorman dressed in their Turbans always remember you personally, many of the staff remain the same and the Service and the Cuisine outstanding. It really is a true pleasure to stay at Raffles where you can relax in your...

Showing some signs of wear, it is shutting down ( parts - retail) for renovations. A monument to a past glory, Singapore has developed a bit away from Raffles. The long bar is still a major draw card, sometimes there is a bit of a wait and when you are inside - Ita a bit of a time warp

The service is impeccable, it really feels like comung home. Our third stay at Raffles was equally as good as previous visits. Sadly next year it will be closed for refurbishment during our holiday period, can't wait to see how the updated hotel will be presented - hopefully maintaining all of its current charm.

On our top to do list was visit the place of birth of the Singapore Sling, the Long Bar, which we have done. We sat on the bar as we sipped our cocktail. I like the view of the bartenders buzzing serving guests and making their concoctions. The bar was quite busy, people chatting and having their drinks while munching...

I've been in Singapore for the 3rd time, and, no question, this hotel is a first class experience. At the moment, there are some reconstruction activities, but we and all the other guests were not affected by this. A fine welcome, we were guided to our suite which was spacious and furnished as the whole hotel in a classical Victorian...

Visited Raffles, as you have to , when in Singapore. Had intended to try the Long Bar but on seeing the queue decided to opt for The Courtyard. This was fine, nice to sit outside !! We have afternoon tea booked for October and I am sure that will be a great experience.
