Hotel's Favourite
5.0 of 5 bubbles
Our stay at Raffles was all that we hoped it would be. Our suite was luxurious, particularly the bathroom with its inlaid marble floor which was absolutely stunning. No attention to detail had been spared - there was even a pillow for the bath. The staff were all so friendly and made us feel very welcome. Particular mention should be given to Roslee Sukar, the hotel's resident historian, who took us on a guided tour of the hotel. Roslee's enthusiasm for Raffles shone through and we would recommend anyone staying at Raffles to take the tour with Roslee. Our suite came with its own butlers, Reena and Thyra, who left me a lovely card, balloons and a little birthday cake for my birthday which was a lovely touch. The breakfast buffet was excellent. We enjoyed drinks in the Long Bar and the Writers Bar and had a lovely dinner at the Chinese restaturant, Yi by Jereme Leung. Everything about Raffles was luxurious. Obviously, all this comes at a cost, but we felt it was worth it for the experience we had.

Myself, my brother and daughter stayed at Raffles as part of a long Christmas and New Year holiday in memory of our other brother who sadly died last year within the space of a ten month illness. He had travelled to Australia twice and to Singapore where he and my younger brother had stayed at Raffles. We wanted to visit some of the same places. I’ve posted other reviews of hotels, restaurants and experiences throughout our nearly four week holiday and although there have been the odd disappointments, there have been loads of high points and overall we’ve had a truly amazing holiday. Arriving at Raffles as the very last part of our holiday was a fitting end. A genuinely iconic place with ultra attentive and friendly staff at every point. Nothing, literally nothing, was too much trouble. Our suite was fabulous - three separate rooms made up of a parlour (with an array of welcome treats), a bedroom, and a beautiful bathroom. Breakfast was a real treat and we had afternoon tea and Singapore Slings at the Long Bar we were even escorted there by our butler to ensure we were given our reserved table (there are often queues).

My only comment is that the ceilings to the Palm Court Suites seem very thin and you can literally hear everything in the room above - footsteps and bed springs alike. I’ve noticed another post about this and Raffles response that the suites are soundproofed but that can’t be right. I suffered three hours of no sleep when a newcomer arrived and sounded like they were literally running up and down their suite and then diving on to their bed. Frequently. I eventually called our butler and she graciously tried to resolve the situation. I’d recommend either laying a carpet in the upper rooms or providing guests on the ground floor with good quality ear plugs. My daughter, who shared my room, also struggled to sleep and my brother, in an adjoining suite, said he also had ‘elephants’ above him (ie it wasn’t just me being over sensitive!) and to be fair to those above, even when they were only walking about quietly, they could still be heard quite clearly. Our second and third nights were much better - but we were wearing ear plugs.

This is a small niggle in the midst of a bucket list experience. We felt very special and were treated as such, so thank you. Given the poignant reason for our visit, it was everything we had hoped it would be (save for the noise issue)

Dear Susan D, Thank you for staying with us and for taking the time to leave us with your feedback, and for raising issues that you encountered during your stay. I take this opportunity to extend my deepest apologies for these shortfalls. Amidst this, I am absolutely delighted to know that you enjoyed your stay at our Grande Dame, and could relieve the memory of your recently departed brother. It is wonderful that you also enjoyed our semi-buffet breakfast at Tiffin Room, as well as afternoon tea at our Grand Lobby and the iconic Singapore Slings at the legendary Long Bar. Please accept my sincerest apologies about our interior surfaces, especially the ceilings, that you feel were not up to par, and for the disruption that was caused to you during your stay, which is not a situation that befits a hotel of our stature. This feedback will be taken very seriously by our team and we will investigate this matter to ensure that your next stay will be of utmost comfort. I cannot convey my sincerest apologies enough and I do hope that you may return to Raffles Singapore to enjoy the true Raffles experience that we hope to deliver on your return visit. Thank you once again for leaving us with your thoughts, and I hope to welcome you back to Raffles Hotel soon. Yours sincerely, Christian Westbeld General Manager Raffles Singapore

Had a really amazing 3D2N staycation here. Everything was impeccable and perfect. It was so comfortable to just chill and relax in the room all day. The room also included a 'care kit' that has face masks, wet tissue and hand sanitizers, it was really thoughtful. The bed is very plush and comfortable I slept really well. I also love the bathroom that's fully clad in marble and a huge bathtub with book reading stand - there is even a bathtub cushion for ultimate comfort. I love the breakfast, my favourite has got to be the fish porridge, i had it 2 days in a row! There's just something about its simplicity yet so tasty. Also recommend the nasi lemak as it's so fragrant and Raffles speciality omelette that has masala powder in it -super unique and yummy! I am really glad to book a staycation here as it is a really memorable one.

Unlike the magnificent  Waldorf Astoria in NY, you can't just enter and have a look around.   The tall Sikh dressed doormen will prevent you from doing so.  There's a separate entrance for guests, who  use their  beautiful  leather room card to enter.  Check in is very VIPish. Taking you through the  divine hall entrance,  with peoole having high tea and a traditionally dressed harpist, you go to a private room away from the  reception area and you sit down on a very comfy armchair  to a  welcome drink and are then  taken to your room.   There were lots of "wow"s from me, since  walking into the main hall, in fact  right upto  my departure.       We were in room 247, with a balcony facing Palm Court and were lucky enough to have witnessed a wedding photo session just in front.   We were given thorough explanations as to the modernity of the beautiful, huge room and bathroom.   Using the ipod,  you can control everything that is electric.  Curtains included . The mattress was one of the most  comfortable  ones I have ever slept on.  A safe,  bathrobes,  slippers, daily beverages and fruit .... everything is present.  The furniture,  decorations and sheer beauty of the room and bathroom were a delight to the eyes.  The Japanese style toilet was most amusing.  As soon as you open the toilet door,  the lid opens and warms up.   When you're done , press on a button, choose the pressure and position, and you're washed.  Then dried. :)    Unfortunately the Tiffin room was closed, so we had dinner at the Chinese restaurant.  The food was delicious but the air conditioning was so cold (in spite of the shawl they lent me), that we ate up fast and went to the Writer's Bar.  Dylan, the friendly  barman concocted us a lovely personalised drink.  Breakfast was plenty.  You can order anything and everything,  all delicious.   The big pool is fantastic to just relax , with drinks and snacks.   The final touch of luxury was the Raffles limousine taking us to the airport. This is a hotel where one just doesn't want to leave, but work awaits at home.

My wife and I stayed for 1 night late December and had a lovely stay. The signature Raffles Doorman was super welcoming and friendly upon checkin, and again as we were departing. What a unique and special touch. The renovated rooms are VERY nice and comfortable. We were especially pleased with the room-attendant service. Grace came to welcome us shortly after check in and helped us modify a dinner reservation that we were having difficulty with, she brought fresh milk for coffee, and she noticed our Rimowa suitcases which could be cleaned by the onsite Rimowa store. She took the suitcases and they were back within a couple of hours, freshly cleaned and wheels oiled. All in all, a great stay, next time will plan to stay longer!

Dear jvom2833, Thank you for taking the time to leave us with your feedback and it is most wonderful to hear of your appreciation for our esteemed Grande Dame. Indeed, the recent restoration was carried out most carefully, as it was important to us that we kept the essence of what made Raffles so special: our heritage, our architecture and our legendary service. I am delighted that our Raffles colleagues were able to make you feel at home, for it is true that we pride ourselves on our world-class service, delightful array of delicacies, and impeccably luxurious suites. The care that we put into every detail puts us at the forefront of the hospitality scene, and creates an oasis for the well travelled. It is especially pleasing to hear that Grace, our butler, went the extra mile to make you feel welcome and took the initiative to make your stay pleasant. Thank you for your very kind feedback, and I eagerly anticipate your return to our Grande Dame. Yours sincerely, Christian Westbeld General Manager Raffles Singapore

Four of us had lunch at the Tiffin Room which lasted 2 1/2 in a relaxed environment. We chose the 4 for 3 option which turned out to be excellent value 2 Appetizers hot and cold, mail and sweet. All beautifully presented and paused between each serve so did not feel rushed which can happen in Singapore. The food was of excellent quality with condiments supplied for the curry. Service was excellent which you would expect at Raffles especially intern Alice on her first day at Tiffin Room 5 stars to her.

On a recent trip to Singapore, one of the things I wished to do was have Afternoon Tea at Raffles in memory of my mum. We booked it online the week before we flew out. I wasnt expecting it to be anything more than we have had before in the UK at say TheFour Seasons, or Burj Al Arab Jumeriah for example, (which have always been lovely) but it really was absolutely superb. It didnt feel like a production line either and we were greeted and escorted to the door by traditionally smartly dressed friendly Indian doorman over the red carpet and into the Lobby. Shown to our table promptly and what followed was very special. We had two glasses of champagne each (obviusly we paid for the extra glass) and the sandwiches and cakes which accompanied the tea were totally delicious. We didnt feel rushed and sat comfortably with a beautiful harpist playing in the background. I have read other reviews on negativity about the price when including champagne - but please be realistic, this is a hotel with a huge history and stature in Singapore and you should expect to pay for the ambience and surroundings after all. It was worth every penny in our opinion.

We would definitely recommend this as a special treat to do when you visit Singapore. The hotel has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment and looked really stylish just as I had imagine and hoped for.

Dear susieprince, Thank you for spending your day at the newly restored Raffles Hotel and having your afternoon tea at The Grand Lobby. It is heartwarming that you appreciate your interactions with our Raffles colleagues, especially our iconic Raffles doorman. Our legendary service is indeed one of the Raffles hallmark experience, and I am glad to hear that our colleagues made you feel at home by attending to you closely. I am happy to know you enjoyed our afternoon tea so much - it is indeed an experience unlike most afternoon teas, as you soak in the beautiful ambiance of the Grand Lobby amidst our delectable and specially curated pastries. I am also pleased to know that you greatly enjoyed the limited edition Billecart-Salmon NV Brut Réserve, which is a special collaboration with the House of Billecart-Salmon that commemorates the reopening of Raffles Hotel Singapore and produced in a limited quantity of 3000 bottles. Thank you for your kind feedback and I look forward to welcoming you back again to experience our other signature dining experiences.

Booked a “Suite Life” Staycation some months ago and after a few postponements due to lockdown I went 7-9 August.

In summary: The hardware is impressive, the service isn’t.

Part of the package was an early check-in at 11 am. But when I arrived at 11 I was told the room wasn’t ready. I sat in the lobby waiting and finally was shown to the room at 11.55 am. I was given a SGD 50 voucher to spend at boutique or spa as compensation.

Part of the package was a historic tour of the building which I’d been looking forward to. But when I tried to book I was told the tour was fully booked for the duration of my stay. A little note on the confirmation letter stating that pre-booking is necessary would have helped.

Part of the package were a gift from the Raffles boutique and a Singapore Sling drink. After calling and asking about those I was told that I need to go to the boutique (for the gift) and the lobby (for the drink) to claim them. I’m ok to walk around picking up parts of my package but a little note somewhere informing me of that fact would have been helpful, instead of making me investigate.

My suite was nice except for a leak just inside the door (from the aircon above?). The iPad controlling lights etc was helpful except for the several occasions when the hotel wifi broke down so Netflix stopped running and I was unable to call for help via the iPad. Wifi subsequently resumed but was patchy throughout the stay.

Breakfast in the Tiffin Room was ok except that both omelette and toast were cold (and limp).

Overall it’s a great property and a green oasis in the middle of the city but for just under 1000 SGD per night (or half, in this ‘buy one get one free’ deal) I’d expect a bit more attention to detail.

This hotel is possibly one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at , the lobby is spectacular with the Harpist playing people enjoying elegant afternoon teas with beautifully turned out staff everywhere ensuring whatever you require is taken care of ,we were also fortunate that the Christmas tree was up which added to the beauty of the lobby.
Our room was a Luxury grand city view and it was worth every penny. The lounge of from the bedroom is a very good size the bathroom was all white marble and possibly the best shower we have ever had. We did see inside some other room types as we walked past and all looked equally as good.
The Cocktail bar also another must do when staying with expert mixologists one of whom I believe had crafted the cocktail list for the other hotel we stayed at on our trip to Singapore.
Tiffin room was our best meal with charming staff and particularly the lady manager from Mumbai.
Even the pool which has no view was a comfortable place to spend a few hours with great staff again.
The hotel has such history too that is felt all around the property.
What a treat & felt very lucky to have stayed at this fantastic property.

Raffles is without a doubt a stunningly beautiful hotel offering brilliant customer service and amenities for its guests. If you can afford to visit then It’s a bucket list thing. However, there were a few nit picky things that were slightly disappointing and this is only given the price that you pay for a room. The ceilings are thin - meaning that you can hear every single footsteps above you making for a restless sleep. Additionally they did not provide an iron or any milk which are basic amenities for a hotel room and I understand this is because they want to make money from the ironing service but very inconvenient if you just wish to iron something quickly.
Overall it’s beautiful and those small criticisms shouldn’t take the shine away from its beauty.

Indeed, our legendary service is indeed one of the Raffles hallmark experience, and I am glad to hear that our colleagues made you feel at home by attending to you.

Yes you will get butler service. We had dinner (indian) in the Tiffin room which doubles for breakfast and really didn't seem that great but expensive. There are other restaurants even pricier in Raffles such as Mdme Le pic (3star) or the steak restaurant again expensive but likely much more well worth it. Afternoon tea is good, don't worry about the writers bar (booking) as they don't seem to bother or with the recommended dress code Teh long bar is a great experience but remember to use you raffles (room) card just walk passed the (hour long) queue and show it - you will get straight in. Courtyard does good food and drinks as does the coffee shop adjacent to it Remember this is Raffles - you will pay a premium but believe me it really is worth it Despite being able to get 3/4 days at the Fairmont over the road for the price of one night I would still do Raffles - we're going back
