Outstanding luxury !

Spent 4 nights in Raffles, it was amazing. The hotel is spacious and beautifully decorated. The welcome you get on arrival and by all the staff whenever you meet them, makes you feel special. The facilities were great, our room was the best we have ever stayed in and the staff were brilliant. Nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is 20 minutes from the main tourist area by metro, which is really easy to use, and is a great place to return to after a busy day sight seeing. We cannot recommend this hotel highly enough and we have stayed in 5 star hotels all over the world.
