Raffles Singapore5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We had a spacious suite on the 2nd floor (217). On entry the door opens into a small sitting room with a 2-seat lounge on one side & a round table & 2 chairs on the other side, there is a built in cupboard encasing the bar size fridge & drawers containing the glassware & crockery. Walk through a doorway into the bedroom which is spacious, plenty big enough for suitcases/shoes etc, there is a wardrobe & drawers for clothing. Walk through another doorway into the bathroom, double basin & good size cabinets. There is a bath & a shower. The style is classical & historical. The room was always spotless, clean & always looked perfect when we returned from outings. Always bottles of water available; robe & slippers for convenience. The staff always addressed us by name, were friendly, very helpful & assisted us with any needs which is a wonderful attribute which will encourage us to return. Highlights-we had High Tea which was AMAZING, a gorgeous breakfast set in our room one morning & a History Tour with Mr Danker. Rosalee & Herman are 2 special staff who looked after us extremely well, thank you for making our stay memorable & special.
From the moment you arrive the attention to detail and service you receive from every member of staff is amazing. They remember your name and make you feel extremely welcome. The check in process was seem less and easy. You enjoy a complementary Singapore Sling whilst the necessary documentation is undertaken. We had a fantastic meal in the Grill, the service is attentive and personal but not overwhelming. Afternoon tea in the Tiffen Room is a must. For breakfast you can have virtually anything you could ask for. Again the service was attentive and personal but not overwhelming. I would highly recommend that if you go to Singapore treat yourself and stay here it is definitely worth it.
We came here because one in the group wanted an "original" Singapore sling, and because another wanted to eat peanuts and throw the shells on the floor. Both desires satisfied. Do you NEED to come here? No Does it give you bragging rights? Yes Is it worthwhile to look around and see the architecture? Yes Would you go again? No Up to you, enjoy.
If I could, I'd put a 4,5. Raffles in Singapore is a fantastic hotel and the best in Singapore. Service trumps everything I have seen elsewhere in terms of attention, quality and caretaking. One thing though is I had once the impression a member of the staff was judging me for staying in such a pricey hotel while I was back from Indonesia on a rather casual trip - understand backpacker and flip-flops. I also think the food options are just too expensive in this hotel for the quality you get.
Today we spent the most amazing 3 hours indulging in the Raffles Hotel's 'Billiecart Brunch'. Without a doubt an experience of a lifetime 😊. Amazing food, dedicated, attentive staff, free flowing Billiecart Champagne (Yes, real, French champagne) in the wonderful surroundings of the Raffles Hotel. Treat, Indulge, Spoil and/or reward yourself with this incredible experience. You will NOT regret nor forget it 👍
We stopped in at the raffles hotel for a Singapore sling. From the welcoming staff all the way to the restaurant staff everyone was super nice. The hotel grounds are pristine and you get a feel what it would have been like to be a guest there 100+ years ago. The kids loved it there too!
I have never stayed at the Raffles Hotel but have has cocktails at the bar and walked the gardens. It is a must on your Siingapore list only because it has such a history. The grounds are lovely. The drinks are expensive but you might as well have a Singapore sling an check it off your "bucket" list.
We went to visit raffles while it was there on our doorstep. In the luxury court yard sipping cocktails and soaking in the atmosphere. This is a very pricey place but if you are around you really do need to visit and try their cocktails out. Whilst we didn't eat there we did enjoy both alcoholic beverages and another day coffee and cakes. Each time the staff very courteous and professional ensuring your visit was that of enjoyment almost pampering. Expensive but like us if you save that little bit extra enjoy the atmosphere of how the people with more money live. People watching there is most enjoyable and gives plenty of food for thought.
Its one of those places you tick off the box. However it is a great shame that you cant enter the Hotel main entrance unless you are a Hotel guest and residence. I have been told by many that the bar/billiards room has changed over the years so its not in keeping with its original style of years gone by. If you manage to be in Singapore when the Hotel undertakes history with room tours then take the plunge.
Home of the singapore sling! This stunning hotel certainly lived up to its reputation had to have 2 singapore slings whilat sat in such a luxury and famous environment very impressive hotel of great magnitude. Greeted with a smile. Just wonderful.
