    Long bar is really old school, cocktails nice, but really expensive and strange staff inside, difficult to find in the hotel, must visit for one visit

    Definitely No.1 hotel in Singapore, no other choice.

    Kind of a tourist trap, where people go to get their Singapore Slings (a drink I've never actually had in SG). It's pretty, though, and we had a nice dim sum there.

    Raffles Courtyard bar - avoid it... Cocktails are nothing special at high price, poor presentation and not creative at all , broken candle light and laminated menu... You don't feel at Raffles here :(

    Once in a lifetime experience. A beautiful place but extremely slow service.

    Expensive. Cool vibe. But wouldn't go again.

    One of the few hotels, if not the only one here in Singapore that houses a theatre that hosts concerts and performances.

    Beautiful classic hotel, host to many weddings and movies. Take time to stroll the courtyards and hallways. Tip do it during the day... Then again at night for a different experience.

    t would be impossible to discuss where to stay in Singapore without mentioning Raffles Singapore... Read more

    This is where the Singapore Sling cocktail originated. Do yourself a favor and order a couple.

    One of the best hotels in Singapore. Great location next to City Hall. The colonial architecture and the gardens are a must.

    Christian Katarn · August 16, 2014

    A Sg colonial classic. For guests, don't miss the bountiful gardens where u can't imagine tt this is right IN the city ctr. A shame that the South Beach development is allowed to go so high opposite.

    Terrible ladies toilets on the third floor. The flush and several water faucets were not working. It makes one wonder how the staff uses the toilet and then go back to preparing your food.

    You can't go past a sling. The 1887 isn't as sweet, but neither is the "original" anymore. Maybe they've improved the recipe over the years?

    Feeling spontaneous? Instead of just a Singapore Sling, why not spend the night at Raffles? Use code 4SQHQ for a 10% off your (already discounted!) booking through the HotelQuickly app. Read more

    You'll need a sling when you leave here as you'll have to sell your arm to pay for drinks!! £20 a pop

    The 1887 Raffles has undergone several face-lifts but stays true to its colonial-style past. Sikh doormen welcome guests in the driveway and suites are done up in antiques and Oriental carpets.

    The place where Singapore Sling was founded. Wonderful bar for great drinks. Don't miss it when you are in Singapore.

    Tourist, do take note that you cannot take photos here without approval from the management. We were asked to leave the hotel when we're just gonna take some shots.

    The 120-plus-year-old Raffles Hotel is known for its expansive tropical gardens and flawless service. The storied Long Bar was the birthplace of the infamous local cocktail, the Singapore Sling.
