its a wonder full hotel, lovely staff always on hand if you want them, the price is worth it but if your the person who doesn't like spending a lot of money on a hotel for a short amount of time its a no the raffles is a long stay hotel.

Room Tip: the best floor is probably the 3rd floor in the an corner suite

The Raffles is a landmark of its own, and for reasons.
Effortless check-in, helpful staff. The room was elegant, with that self conscious historic approach that makes the Raffles so pleasant.
The Raffles has done some efforts to update, but - luckily - does not lose its special charme. Actually, they keep working, so you may want to check on status, in particular re bars.
Breakfast is excellent, with some nice ideas (such as raspberries and some British specials).
The pool is nice, though not spectacular, but there are better ways to spend time at the Raffles than in the pool.
And yes, you can throw peanuts, and it is fun. Though I have to admit that the Singapore Sling was better at some other places. Probably a good example that some students may exceed the inventor..

What a masterpiece of a hotel - wonderful history and very well preserved.

The bar is a must, with the discarded nutshells all part of the history of the place and the city. Was undergoing renovations when there, so look out for that and also - a Singapore sling, for a ore made cocktail is very expensive there - make sure you ask first.

I realise that maintenance work has to be done now and then but was disappointed it just happened to coincide with a trip to Singapore to celebrate an ‘0’ birthday.

We instead opted for a visit to the pop up bar to sample the iconic Singapore Sling. There weren’t too many seats so had to wait a while. In fact, it seemed more of the space had been given over to a gift shop. Guess there’s more money to be made in tea towels than alcohol! It wasn’t the best experience in the world but I was glad we went just to say ‘we did’.

We love this hotel style and service. This hotel is your number 1 choice if you are seeking for 5 luxury hotel to stay. Bit pricey but great peanuts with classy room, relaxing and peaceful.

5 stars service from the bell boy concierges to the waiters and receptions, the overall service by all staffs are simply world class.

What a memorable time we had ! Would definitely come back
