    Overpriced & overrated. Singapore sling is way too sweet. The Long Bar was closed & the Billiard bar has no atmosphere.
  • Orhan Oral U.
    Atmosphere at the Bar & Billard. Service is good. Peanuts accompanying your drink are free of charge.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    Avoid the Long Bar. Over-crowded and over-rated. Full of tourists with bum bags and socks and sandles. Felt like a 'Browns' bar. Instead go to the Billiards room for your sling. Serene and old-school.

    Staying in even the basic rooms means colonial details and the coveted keycard to access guest-only areas. Walk up the main building staircase to find antique opium beds on the landings.
