VERY FAMOUS HOTEL

Posted 19-Jun-2014
Pros: I liked everything about this hotel.
Cons: Some parts (very few) appear "worn" and could do with a refurbish.
Location: Central location - handy for City Hall MRT station and Raffles City Shopping Mall. Many museums are within walking distance.
Very famous hotel in which many famous people have stayed - from Presidents to Film Stars to Sportstars. The list is endless. The elegant early 1900's style makes it special - and the rooms renovated in the old style retains the Colonial feel. Food is superb - and the location is central. Staff seem to know your name and call you by it even if they have not met you before - puzzling!

Raffles, the only way to stay in Singapore

Posted 29-May-2014
Pros: The service and personality of the staff
Perfect relaxing colonial era hotel in Singapore, blends old with new and has service like I have never experienced in my life, minimum stay should be 4 nights to get a thorough experience. It isn't cheap but it is something one must experience once in a lifetime

Lovely historic hotel

Posted 28-Apr-2014
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Raffles. The service from the staff was excellent. I would definitely recommend having the historic tour while staying there. Will definitely be going back.

Elegant Hotel

Posted 15-Apr-2014
This hotel was everything one would expect it to be and then some. The service was excellent, from day one we were greeted by our names and every day after. The room was immaculate, with lots of space and a very comfortable bed. The food was delicious, and a plethora of choices from the breakfast buffet. I cannot find any fault in this hotel and would highly recommend to anyone.

Once in a lifetime

Posted 09-Apr-2014
Booked as 48th anniversary present for parents. They loved it. Family all visited room and hotel provided com plimentary bottle wine and juice for kids. Room was fantastic but very expensive so probably first and last. I paid £650 but could have got it for £450 if I'd booked on the day.

The Only Place To Stay In Singapore

Posted 31-Mar-2014
Pros: Staff, service, atmosphere
Cons: Nothing
Location: Near to all shopping. Raffles City just across the road, not far from Orchard Road - main shopping area. Shops in the hotel as well.
Absolutely wonderful stay. Staff are attentive but not intrusive. Service is everything. Great restaurant, Long Bar Grill - got to dine there once just for the experience. Singapore Sling in the Long Bar - a touch of history. Fabulous grounds with lots of seating for quiet, peaceful reflection. Best hotel I have stayed in, better than so many other 5 star hotels. Highly recommended.

Colonial charm

Posted 27-Feb-2014
Pros: See above
Cons: The bathroom was OK but could be improved
Location: Too busy working to see much but he Raffles arcade shops were good
Raffles hotel has been superbly renovated to a high standard. As a woman travelling alone on business, I was well looked after. Service in the hotel was excellent. The atmosphere was of a sophisticated tropical, well-adapted building. The extensive gardens, courtyards, verandas and balconies were much pleasanter than a high rise enclosed modern building. Food was excellent.
