              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.

              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.

              The colonial atmosphere, exemplary service and in the Grill Room, one of the world's best restaurants. There is no better place to stay in Singapore.

              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.

              Amazing attention to detail. The service provided by the staff was outstanding and could not have been better. A pure luxury all round.
