Have your credit card ready folks, this place is expensive. $32 for an original Singapore Sling then $24 for a Heineken! Place looks great with a refurb in progress, entrance kinda hard to find. Service was a little slow but drinks were better than average. Way to pricy for the average traveller, wouldn’t go back :)

Try the Sling, there are a few to choose from. There are also other great cocktails or maybe you just fancy a beer? Great place with good atmosphere and friendly staff. A great place to start the day, or end it? We’ve been here most days during our visit and tried most of the cocktails.

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.

Stayed: November 2017, travelled with friends
