Our stay was a fabulous Christmas present.

The most unique hotel we have ever stayed in. The ambiance is amazing, it is like being transported to another era! There isn't anything I would criticise or change. There is nothing better than sitting outside your suite in the beautiful Courtyard drinking a glass of champagne - perfect!

Buy a card for bus or MRT. The public transport is terrific and very inexpensive, and it is easy to get around.

disatisfied customer

Stayed in 2011 and loved the hotel. Its an experience of a time gone by. It's getting a little jaded for the price you pay but despite this decided to delay 2 special occasion celebrations and stay again this year. However 5 days prior to out stay Raffles cancelled he booking citing hotel block booked with an offer to stay in the sister hotel across the road instead. Needless to stay we declined as it was the Raffles experience we wanted. Raffles management in our opinion don't seem to be too bothered by our plight as we spent the last day of our en rote holiday distressed and viewing other hotels on line. So I say buyer beware.

Disappointed

I have stayed in the best hotels in the world - Beverly Hills, Monaco, Bangkok, Hong Kong. This isn't one of them. Three times I had to ask for my tea at breakfast - it came as ordinary breakfast - I'd asked for Earl Grey. I was working on a book til past midnight. The fruit tray had not been replenished from the previous night. Nor had the tea bags. The first milk came out solid, as did the second. Yes, these are little things, but they make excellence. The light from the corridor shines in your room all night; no gym; it's living on its name and past glories. A great shame.

A destination in its own right......

The adage "you only get what you pay for" holds good when people say the Raffles is expensive, because it is not expensive when one considers value for money as opposed to looking for "a bargain". Raffles is a truly great experience, one which any traveller would want to repeat.

My wife and I stayed a Raffles

My wife and I stayed a Raffles some years ago and it was a perfect experience. This time was different, not quite so special. Bathroom and dressing room had an unpleasant smell and the general impression of the quality was not surpassing any of the many places we have stayed in over the years. Sad but true.
