Half expected to find a tired, living-on-its-history tourist trap BUT it certainly was not, it is a beautiful historic building well-looked after with great style. Gorgeous ambience, lovely welcome and arrival. Truly free-flowing champagne. Wonderful 4star food including Loch Fyne oysters flown in from Scotland that morning. Everything wonderful that you could imagine and so well prepared and displayed. Top quality. Worth every cent. Relaxed yet sophistocated. A wonderful way to spend a Sunday. We will be back again and again and ag......

I've stayed at a few places in Singapore but never before at Raffles. I was expecting a tired tourist trap but the truth could not have been more different.

The building is gorgeous, the situation perfect and the bedrooms fabulously colonial and vast. It has the feeling of age and history so if you are expecting the "fake" history of a Four Seasons but with everything identikit and perfect then Raffles is not for you. Raffles, unlike so many hotels has true character, elegance and class.

The service is simply incredible. The Tiffin Room lunch is one of the best Indian buffets outside of the best 5 star hotels in India and the Billiard Room bar is also highly recommended and is incredibly evocative of days gone by.

I can wholeheartedly recommend Raffles as not only the best hotel in Singapore but one of the very best hotels in the world. I'll be back...!

We reserved one of the personallity suites but I think they ran out of them so we had the very fortunate experience of being upgraded to the Cathey Suite off the original courtyard. It has two private balconies to sit and enjoy the "guests only" courtyard, with its elegant trees and birds. We didnt want to leave the balcony. It was so relaxing. The service was wonderful. My wife and I had dinner on the balcony and the two gentleman that bought us dinner were delightful. They even included a dozen roses and romantic candlelight.

We had dinner the night before in one of the public area restaurants near the shops and found the meal very good, but overpriced. You definitely pay for the historic surroundings so consider it partly entertainment. Nothing else can explain the cost, but we are happy we did it once.

The pool was very nice, although the jacuzzi sections were down for repair. One strike against an otherwise wonderful experience.

The Long Bar, not so great. Skip it if you have other more important things on your list. It felt like an Applebees to me.

The height of colonial elegance . the staff all remember your name , the management fall over to ensure your stay is a superb experience . It is not cheap , but it is a wonderful experience . You cannot even get into the lobby unless you are a guest . The service is second to none , the piano bar and the restaurants fantastic . The rooms are suites with fabulously high ceilings , the teak floors and the BOSE music system just add to the splendid richness . Beds are turned down , slippers and dressing gowns laid out , fresh fruit in the room . The mini bar is astronomically expensive
