Editorial review:

This renowned 19th-century hotel exudes charm and has unparalleled service and luxury. The rooms are lavish, there are incredible dining options, and the rooftop pool is great. Critics feel that it's overprices and full of tourists. Those who love it think that it's an essential place to visit. There's also the historic Long Bar that Hemingway used to visit.

                            Everything - from the minute the taxi pulled up to the sad minute we left in the taxi the staff, hotel, services, room and all facilities were amazing. It was a special night for us and thorough enjoyed our time in Raffles, our suite was lovely and we spent the night to excellent room service on the balcony with a complimentary bottle of champagne for our anniversary, Thanks Raffles, see you same time next year.

                            The best service i have encountered at a Hotel. Each room gets a Butler who will help out however you want. Very good.

                            Washing was majorly expensive. One load cost me $250 Singapore dollars.

                            Expensive, but worth it.

                            I could feel history at Raffles and enjoyed a continual sense of luxury during my entire stay. It is centrally located with easy access to the busy hearbeat of Singapore and yet offers a calmness within its walls. The classical elegance of Raffles is matched by the attitude and service of the staff who, for the most part, have managed to maintain a most accomodating and friendly demeanor despite the hotel's exceedingly high reputation.

                            Usually at luxury hotels there is just one outstanding feature, many great aspects, and then a couple of areas that need a bit of work. Raffles has so many outstanding features and whilst 99.9% of the staff are exceptional, I found some senior staff tended to exhibit a little 'holier-than-thou' attitude. This is easily forgiven but worth mentioning.

                            Raffles was wonderful ... the service was excellent, but that's commonplace in Singapore ... what was unique was waking up to the sound of the birds, not the traffic, in downtown Singapore ... also sitting outside with a view of the garden.

                            great stay, great hotel; a must for anyone who wants to live in a palace; the atmosphere, the design, the comfort, all is as the initial armenian founders, sarkies brothers have imagined when they built the Raffles

                            our major regret is tha the famous Cigar Divan is no more a smoking club; a restaurant is being operated at the same place, and the bar where we used to enjoy a nice cigar with a whiskey does not exist anymore

                            We were on our honeymoon so had complimentary afternoon tea and a bottle of champagne. Which was very nice. It was special.

                            The front house/ check in/out desk people were confused about the payment.
