The Raffles Hotel in Singapore is an institution, and we wanted to show it to our daughters. The Long Bar that created the Singapore Sling is an absolutely beautiful old bar. We ordered the drinks and did the traditional peanut shelling and discarding on the floor, which is bizarre and horrible to walk on. The one round of 4 drinks cost a staggering $128, but it was worth it for the experience.

Greetings from Raffles Hotel Singapore!

Thank you for visiting the hotel complex to show it to your daughters, it is a pleasant program to walk around the Arcades and the gardens. I am happy to hear that you stopped at the Long Bar for a Singapore Sling and that the experience was worth it. Please visit us again when in Singapore, maybe you would even like to try one of the other restaurants that we have?

Kind regards,

No visit to Singapore is complete without a visit to the long bar for a sling.

The Hotel is a magnificent complex .

Check in was lovely however when asked to wait at the writers bar be aware that the drinks are not complimentary and that nothing at raffles is for the budget minded .

All in all we loved our stay even though it was a little pricey .

You cannot visit Singapore without experiencing a gin sling in raffles. Lovely old colonial hotel..... Just as we imagined and cocktails to die for albeit a little pricey but you just have to do it!! Some nice pics for the album too.

We spent time at Raffles while in Singapore on holiday......the staff were very friendly and helped with our luggage.....checking in was seemless....on opening the door....we were led into a smallish room with dining table....and couch at the opposite end.....onto the bedroom..which was a large open space....with a writing table in one corner and large bed in the middle ...chocolates were placed on the bed every night......the bathroom was also very large.....with both shower and bath......and lovely Floris toiletries.....the bath salts were replaced every day...even if they had only been party used...!...The Tiffin room was nice.....meals were good....and the service was first class.....we met the Raffles historian one morning at breakfast ....a charming man.....and very knowledgable......The staff were very attentive and helpful ....... The gardens were a delight .... and it was nice and peaceful just sitting watching the day go by... A drink in the Long Bar is a must...and a wander round the shops below....We went out one night for a walk ....and when we came back the staff had a surprise for me.....as it was my birthday they had made me a cake covered in gold leaf......they stood beside me and sang Happy Birthday...! Before we left the staff presented me with a lovely photo of myself and my partner taken the night before ....and placed in a leather frame inside a box.....a nice reminder of a fantastic holiday....

Room Tip: Rooms on south side are generally quieter....but read the reviews...as i found them very helpful.....

We are grateful for your appreciation of the hotel’s style and the amenities of the room as well as remembering the small gestures of the staff to make this a special stay

Meeting our Resident Historian is indeed a fantastic occasion to learn about the stories of the hotel – there are quite a few in the 125 years of history of the Grande Dame!

I look forward to welcoming you again,
