I'm sure years ago this was a wonderful hotel - now it's just living on it's name and reputation. The "famous" Long Bar has been moved and the drinks are just ridiculously overpriced. Nostalgia yes - value - no.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

The Raffles hotel made our stay in Singapore just perfect! I love historical hotels so I enjoyed my visit from the first minute. We were greeted by attentive personnel - first of all by picturesque doormen. The welcome drink folowed and check in was fast and efficient. We liked the suite in the first floor from the beginning - entering...

We couldn't resist a visit to the famous hotel bar for its signature drink. The hotel grounds were immaculate and the gardens riveting. The Lobby and bar took us back in time although the modern conveniences were in service. Eating the delicious Malaysian peanuts served in burlap bags, while sipping my Sling was enchanting. The gift shop had some treasures...

It's expensive to stay there and everything from food to beverages, etc. is equally overpriced but one stays there because of the elegance and ambiance of an historic place. Its history is intricately tied to that of Singapore since the late 19th Century. There are apparently over 300 hotels in Singapore but this one has a lot of class. The...

We stopped by for a Singapore Sling. Overall, we were underwhelmed. The drinks are approximately $35 US dollars and nothing extraordinary. The service was also subpar. They do have nice restrooms and a decent gift shop.

Visited this lovely old hotel which takes you back to the roaring twenties in atmosphere & is a very pleasant place to stroll around. Home to the famous " Singapore Sling" we did give into temptation to have one then found out afterwards that the price was pretty extortionate! 36.50 sd. About £22:50 a go. Not really worth that sort...

Whilst I didn't stay here I did come for a visit to the Long Bar, home of the Singapore Sling. The bar is no longer in its original location on the ground floor but is now upstairs and much smaller, but is still a beautiful bar. Drinks are expensive so I didn't go for a Sling this time, especially seeing...

A trip to Singapore would be incomplete without a trip to Raffles. This iconic hotel has shown up in so many movies and books it must be seen first hand. It was undergoing some renovations when we visited so there was limited access. The outer facade did not disappoint and walking up to the front door, one could be transported...

It's quite difficult to put into words how amazing staying at the Raffles in Singapore really is. And forget photos, they don't do the place any justice. It's simply unbelievable and it felt like a privilege to stay there. Being welcomed with Singapore slings was so good! It was such a comfortable check-in experience sitting on the lounge chairs at...

We recently ended a holiday with a three night stay at Raffles in Singapore. I wanted to stay at Raffles before it was closed for refurbishment and so was intrigued as to whether I would love it's old fashioned tradition and decor or whether it would be 'faded glory'. I absolutely loved it and would encourage any one to stay...
