We stayed for 5 wonderful nights at the Raffles Hotel Le Royal and had a wonderful time. But what a disappointment the famous Elephant Bar is. Not because of the cocktails (the famous Femme Fatale and a delicious Negroni, for example) - which are wonderful. Not because of the décor - which is lovely. Not because of the pianist - who is talented. And not because of the staff - who are the best (as in the rest of the hotel). But because SMOKING IS ALLOWED!!!!!******* Incroyable. Not so bad at the start of the evening. But this bar gets very busy. On our first evening we fancied a post-dinner night-cap - but one whiff of the choking air and we were out in a second. Tip - sit outside. Apparently you can eat in the Elephant Bar. Tip - don't!!!!
