"Beautiful and Historic Hotel"
Nice to visit this historic hotel. The courtyard is beautiful with great ambience, however it would cost one an arm and a leg for just an ordinary coffee which we had. We knew this was the birthplace of Singapore Sling but we didn't want to have alcohol at that time.
If you're in Singapore and want to see something of what "old" Singapore looked like before the explosion of glass and steel high rise towers - like every other major city has - check out the Raffles Hotel for a G&T or a Singapore Sling (invented there). Great 19th c architecture and setting. It's undergoing massive renovations and reopening in the middle of 2018 - closed completely from mid-December to mid-June. But worth a visit.
"A Classic in Asia...!"
Hotel undergoing a major renovation. A classic in Asia which has kept its soul enhanced by a great staff providing a very attentive and caring service... I truly recomend the Raffles Singapore for visitors looking for a attention to details and authentic hotels...
A beautiful building, the atmosphere is of a long gone time. Very elegant dining room, serene passage ways, lush gardens. Well stocked gift shop. The Christmas decorations covering the hotel were beautiful.
"Worth the wait "
Spent the afternoon in the Long Bar drinking the famous Singapore Sling couldn't stop at just one and 6 later we were having a fine time, throw in a casual feed and it was everything we had hoped for, sitting back soaking up the atmosphere and digesting the hotel history you can only dream of days gone bye, staff were awesome and to be honest the whole experience was flawless, when visiting Singapore this tops the list of things to do and would recommend to anyone that asks. We will definitely return and can't wait to soak up more of the history that is the Raffles Hotel
