As part of the hotel restoration the Arcades is currently closed although one or two shops including the gift shop remains open during the restoration period.

Good access from our hotel to the arcade with lots of designer shops. Food hall was great with lots of variety. Arcades gave access to MRT and all was air conditioned.

The Raffles Hotel Arcade was nearing closure for its massive upgrade but I still managed to stick my nose in. From Rolex to Philippe Patek, you have a small smattering of luxury brands, that fill this small arcade, including its own Raffles branded outlet to cash in on the upmarket traffic. I get the feeling that this arcade is tagging... More

As most every traveller to Singapore does, we just HAD to go to Raffles for a Singapore Sling ! Gorgeous old colonial building oozing with the charm and elegance of yesteryear and the days of the British Raj. It was like a step back in time. Worth queuing up for- and the S$31 each!! An experience not to be missed... More

We're disappointed that the long bar was shut for renovation and we had to have the famous Singapore sling in the billiard room. The Singapore sling was really good but expensive but at least you got a bag of free monkey nuts. Historical place that you must visit when in Singapore. The arcade was an interesting place to look around... More

Raffles is having a refurbishment currently (early 2017) and so some of the more famous areas are not able to be visited. In any case, as a non resident you are quite limited in the areas you can visit anyhow. The frontage is still impressive with the costumed footman at the door but otherwise I thought it was a bit...
