Raffles Singapore5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
High tea at Raffles ... what can you say .. a wonderful decadent experience. A glass of bubbly to start with, then onto tea, sandwiches and cake. Not the cheapest high tea but probably one of the best. Followed up with a Singapore Sling in the Billiard Room. Wonderful hotel and decor. Highly recommended.
We spent there 2 nights. I was very impressed with the Reception area, check-in service and how welcoming it was. I stayed only in one Raffles Hotel before and it was not as personal in its approach to the customer. Level of service was actually as high throughout our whole stay so it was a very positive experience. Hotel is fabulous, it's difficult to believe you can find such colonial and historical place in such modern surrounding. Outside and all patios are beautiful, lots of plants, well-maintained, original lifts. Interior of the bedrooms is kept in an eclectic style with very colonial feel. Strong presence of the art everywhere in the hotel was a nice touch. Bar was very cool, worth dropping by for a drink, it has a great ambience, felt like 100 years ago, maybe just Singapore Sling advertisement could have been less present (it's everywhere in the hotel). Breakfast might have been a bit better. All in all, I am really impressed with the place and superb service. Definitely worth coming back.
Saw a few negative reviews before attending so was nervous. Was not disappointed though. Very relaxed and welcoming staff. Fantastic experience and beautiful buildings. Still undergoing major refurb till early 2018 but cocktails being served in bar/ billiard room. Food available if required. Yes the Singapore slings are 37 singapore dollars each which is about £20 but your paying for the ambience, history and experience. If you don’t want to pay such price then like everything in life you have choices!!
If you have a very special occasion to celebrate this would be a great way of celebrating in style. Whilst the hotel is in the middle of renovations until mid 2018, the only thing missed is that grand entrance as the main building is closed. Planned a couple of night at Raffles hotel as a ‘spoil me’ way of ending the trip. Whilst it is a reasonably expensive couple of nights, I have not been disappointed. It has exceed my expectations. It has certainly not lost any of the charm which must have existed in the colonial days, where the well to do would be spoilt with personalised service. The whole experience from the reception and the butler make you feel very special. Our butler was great (bit embarrassed, we have forgotten her name, however she remembers ours when we cross paths in the corridors) The rooms have all the charm of the colonial time. Very specious 1 bedroom suite with a comfortable seating and dining area. Breakfast was great as were the Signature Singapore Slings !! This has been a very special couple of days and fully recommend. Big thanks to the Raffles team Room 263, 11-13th Nov
Our first time in Singapore and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to visit the world famous Raffles Hotel and enjoy a Singapore Sling. Unfortunately the hotel is going through a major refurbishment, so we were not able to get the entire experience. The Bar & Billiards Room is still open and we were able to sit, relax and enjoy their famous cocktail. It was delicious and hard to stop at just one..
There is currently a great deal of restoration work going on at Raffles, but a visit shows the true history and grandeur of the place. The world famous Singapore Sling is currently being served in the pool and billiards bar. But this is a must do in Singapore and the works shouldn't distract from the history. The hotel also has a great souvenir shop.
Expensive Singapore sling - which hardly had any alcohol in it - 31 for a cocktail - is expensive - but it's 1 of those things - you have to do in Singapore. So enjoy your Singapore sling it would be better if you could sit outside near entrance in the gardens
Yes it’s a must stop and yes it’s the place where you HAVE TO HAVE a Singapore Sling! As good as the 31$ price, enjoy the free peanuts makes the hefty price a little more passable! A must stop period!
No trip would be complete without a stop at Raffles for the world famous Singapore Sling. It was disappointing that there are major renovations going on so we couldn’t sit in the long bar but once we had that drink in our hands we were happy 😀🍹
Initially we got quite lost trying to find the entry, the majority of the exterior is boarded up for renovations. After walking almost the entire perimeter we found the entry. There was a short line to get into the bar, we waited maybe 15 minutes. It took a little while for our waitress to arrive but the drinks came very quickly once ordered. I liked the peanuts on the table however I can't eat peanuts which was a shame! The sling was ok, you could tell fresh juice was not used in the drink. I assume the drinks are expensive because it is a tourist attraction. This is a must-do in Singapore, even for the price
