As with everything in Singapore, Raffles is expensive. Only the very wealthy stay here. Tourists, well they just go for a look and walk around and sometimes have a drink at the Long Bar. But be prepared. Drinks here are expensive. $84 SGB for 4 drinks and 2 were just beers. But ie is worth the experience

My wife and I went here because of the historic significance of the hotel and especially its' bar. Please note that we did NOT stay here, we chose instead the Mandarin hotel. The bar itself is located far back in the hotel grounds and has apparently been relocated several times though the years. So much for historical significance. The bar... More

A beautiful hotel that should not be missed. It oozes history and a visit to the Long Bar for a Singapore Sling should not be missed

With Raffles and the history of Singapore being indelibly linked it seemed a shame not to head to raffles and try to get a feel for the past....we were not disappointed the bar is old world wood and the floor is covered with peanut shells with free flowing nuts in the shell on all tables....the Slings are not cheap nut...

Can highly recommend the High Tea in the Tiffin Room. The tea was Devine while listening to the beautiful Harp being played. The three tiered stand of sandwiches and cakes lovely. Was not overly impressed with the scones, though the hot pastries were fabulous. Retired after the relaxing High Tea to the Long bar to enjoy the infamous Singapore Sling.... More
