                  A great Hotel with great servide”

                  The best service we have ever experienced in a hotel.

                  my wife and i stayed at raffles to celebrate her birthday on our way home from a european trip. it was our 4th stay since 1992 and i never cease to be impressed by the quality of the experience. there are certainly more opulent hotels in the world but surely there are none with better service and general ambience. the checkin, the butlers introduction to the rooms features and facilities, tea and coffee being delivered without charge at a touch of a call button, the attention to detail are features. raffles does a whole lot extremely well. the hotel had not been informed of my wife s birthday but i guess they observed the date is in her passport . i was called in the room to say that it was noted that we had a celebration coming up. we came back from the pool to find the room decorated with birthday greetings and balloons, and towels folded as frogs. our butler and an assistant turned up with a birthday cake and our celebrations were well under way. the rooms are huge with fresh fruit was provided daily. the room is serviced more than once each day and still has a genuine turn down service. at the pool cold bottled water , chilled towels and fruit skewers were delivered by the pool attendant /barman without request or charge and towels were arranged for guests on the sun beds. the pianist in the writers bar is just brilliant. leslie, the historian who has been at raffles for 40 years, met us at breakfast in the tiffin room, and arranged to take us on a tour of the hotel. we had a chance to recall things about singapore and the hotel from the 70's when we first visited the hotel to have a singapore sling in the old long bar. raffles does everything you expect from a 5 star hotel and much more. it is a reasonably expensive experience and perhaps some of the services provided are not essential but they are nevertheless enjoyable. i don't think i have ever stayed any where which is better value for money. you really get what you pay for.

                  A Truly World Class Hotel "Best Ever"”

                  We loved everything about "Raffles"

                  from the moment we arrived we were greeted by our butler and shown to our room on the first floor. the room was "breathtaking" and the size of an apartment, lavishly furnished with furniture from days gone by. the butler ordered us a no charge "singapore sling" which was delightful. the size of "raffles" hotel is massive and takes a little while to walk around and find the "long bar". the bar is very busy and hard to find a table "but wait" hotel guests have preferred seating. amongst the peanut shells on the floor we had our own table and loved every minute and soaked up the atmosphere. upon check out we were advised that we could return later in the day and freshen up (shower etc)which was great before we boarded our flight. taxis around singapore are cheap and raffles is close by to all the shopping one is capable of. cant wait to return to "raffles"

                  The experience of staying at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore was unforgettable. The ambience, quality of rooms & furnishings, and of course the service was excellent. The hotel staff were very helpful with the exception of a night staff on the front desk who seemed unwilling to resolve our question whether breakfast was included or not. However, the butler service made up for any shortcomings and was always prompt. The location of the hotel is very convenient for business as well as shopping & eating out and entertainment. Our stay was on the occassion of our wedding aniversary and we shall never forget the wonderful time we had at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore. The special rate with one night free was an opportunity we could not miss.

                  Raffles experience unique ”

                  The personal attention of the staff and the unique environment of an historic institution.

                  Other hotels may provide luxury but Raffles gave my wife, my 80 year old mother and our two children of 9 and 12 memories that they will cherish for their lifetimes. The hotel and its staff offered us all something special. For the children a personal tour of the hotel by the splendid liveried hotel doorman Naranjan and stories of tigers in the billiard room and insights into some of the famous visitors he had met, pizza making in the Italian bar; and the personal attention of the butler Ayako. For the grown ups; the splendid surroundings; the wonderful suites; the attentive staff who greet you by name; a sense of calm and tranquility with gardens to wander in and relax in the heart of Singapore all capped off by music and cocktails until midnight in the longbar. Not just a stay but an experience to savour. Worth every penny. Add to that a certain pleasure in staying at a hotel that most visitors to Singapore will visit but not fully experience. Enjoying a Singapore Sling in the long bar only really scratches the surface of this great institution.

'long bar' was another must visit place in the property!even though raffles hotel itself is a famous sighseeing spot, all the suites are located in the designated area where hotel guests need to have a key to acces. therefore, tourists won't be walking around your suites. it was very quiet, relaxing and pleasant stay. we enjoyed every single moment we spent at raffles. we would love to stay there again when we visit singapore.

                  No coffee & tea maker facilities in suite, old Tv's in cabinets, no wired internet access

                  i had a wonderful 4 nights stay at the raffles hotel. the location was perfect, within walking distance of everything. the service was personal and courteous, including personalised butler service, where no wish remains unnoticed. the ambience of the hotel is calm, elegant and cosy. you feel welcome, as you were in your own home. privacy is of utmost importance and unless you need anything, no one will bother you in the slightest way. staff is extremely friendly and helpful. my suite was right underneath the pool, where one could hear a bit of water filter noise coming through the ceiling, but no drama really. the only thing missing in the suites were tea and coffee maker facilities. asking why there are none, i was told that the hotel prefers to make tea and coffee as a presentation and serve in your room or verandah, instead of making it yourself, well fair enough, but how about if i get up at 3am and feel like a tea? do i need to wait for the butler to come and serve it 20mins later and what if i want more tea after...i really prefer to have free coffee and tea maker facilities in-room as in almost every hotel on the planet and have the option to have it served when needed. otherwise really nothing major to complain about. lcd tv's would be nice in the cabinets, instead of the 80's style tubes, wireless internet jumps in and out, not convenient for conference calls, wired internet in rooms would be much better. all-in-all i had a very pleasant stay and i will be back for sure. thank you raffles staff for making this christmas visit a life-long memory.

                  The price!

                  Although Raffles has consistently won awards for hospitality and service for decades, it is no doubt one of the world's best hotels. Ideally situated in central Singapore, with very close access to the various shopping malls & museums and other 'colonial' historic sites. Initial impressions were very favourable, from the pleasant door staff, reception staff who not only checked me in, but showed me to the suite and checked that I was totally satisfied with the rooms. Large bedroom, dining room, dressing room and bath/shower/toilet room on a first floor balcony overlooking the tropically planted courtyard gardens. Rooms were imaculate, serviced several times a day, fruit bowl replenished whenever it ran low (not charged for), slippers, dressing gowns all supplied. Breakfasts were a multiple choice included in the price, I never used any of the other restaurants so can't comment, bars were pleasant and attentative staff. But can it really justify the prices!

                  Service, decor and design of Hotel and rooms, atmosphere

                  This is the best historic hotel I have stayed in! Service was outstanding: from the elaborately dressed doorman with perfect personality for the job, to the staff in the long Bar who had detailed history knowledge. The design and decor of the historic hotel and rooms is astounding and the accompanying atmosphere makes one feel like royalty. Rooms are equally impressive. 24hr Butler service useful. Well stocked bar fridge. Turn-down service great. The TV is a bit old (the big box type), but, who is there for the TV?! Toiletries and room amenities of high quality. Dining Food was reasonable (but I wouldn't consider breakfast 'excellent'). I'm not a fan of buffets and both dinner (Indian) and breakfast were buffet..but the chef and waiters came to the table regularly, bringing an assortment of delicacies so that was enjoyable. There are also many other restaurants scattered around the establishment but I did not try them. I did go to the infamous Long Bar though, and guests get to go upstairs to a more special area and also had privileged access to a brand new cocktail menu (April 2014)based on historic Raffles cocktails - I tried 4, and each was a mastermind of flavours. Hotel security great. Gardens nice given the contained city location. Had a spa treatment which was good. Pool area nice and peaceful. Price is high for rooms and food / drinks, but it is good value for money considering what you get. Once my bank balance recovers I will stay again - can't wait!

They told us that we will get a welcome drinks ( Singapore sling of course ) , but nobody showed up with the drink and also no bottles with water in the room … that was the only minus no major problems ,,, the rest of the stay was just perfect . The room and the hotel is very old-fashioned and it is almost like staying in a museum , very interesting just walking around in the hotel . When we check out , our flight was late in the evening and they let us use the swimming pool rest of the afternoon which was a great help for us . Breakfast is fantastic !!!!

                  I booked just a night for our wedding anniversary and spending it there at The Raffles really made it very special for us. The Raffles is a place of heritage and you feel the history everywhere you look, as if Ernest Hemingway had just checked out. Despite this, everything makes you feel warm and homely and much is to the credit of the service, which is simply exquisite. The wide choice of excellent bars, restaurants and activities around also means you could spend a whole week there without feeling a hint of boredom. The Raffles is a fantastic place and offers a unique experience that I would recommend for everyone to at least try for one night. If it wasn't for the hefty price tag, I would gladly make that place my home away from home in Singapore.

It is a beautiful hotel - the room standard was superb and we were treated to the services of a butler and an evening butler.

We took lunch in the Tiffin Room - North Indian Buffet - which really is a 'must try'. Again we were treated with the greatest of care.

However, aside from the fantastic ambience, great central location and wonderful in house dining options it is the hospitality of the staff that requires extra special commendation. From the general manger to a grounds person they are amongst the most most respectful and polite a staff that I have come across anywhere.
