4 out of 5

I enjoyed my stay at the Trader's Hotel. My room was well maintained and the staff members were helpful. The hotel has a pool and fitness center which I thought was great. I also liked the fact that the hotel was conveniently located. It was right next to the main bus terminal. That is very convenient for those who wish to take a bus to get to the airport or various attractions around the island.

This is a conveniently located hotel for Georgetown, with efficient, friendly staff. The room was comfortable and of a good size, but was looking a little tired. I enjoyed the swimming pool, and breakfast was good.

The room is clean and location is good, it's just next to the new 1st Avenue shopping mall. However, if you are driving heading out or back to the hotel, the traffic is quite congested because of the cars going to the mall and the hotel is just few minutes walk from the mall.

The Traders is good value for money. It's free shuttle to the Golden Sands resort and free use of the swimming pools there is a definite plus. I would book this same hotel when I go to Penang next year.

Very good location.Most of the shops in the area aren't open early . A friend took us to Carnarvon Street to sample very tasty and cheap breakfast. There is a corner coffee shop that sells local hawker style breakfast like char-koay-teow, Loh mee, hokkien mee, Loh bak, koay-teow-teng for 3 or 4 ringgit each. It is about 10 minutes on foot. For hawker food style lunch, go to Old Town White Coffee on Burmah Road. It might take 25 minutes. Do not miss the hawker food on New Lane which is 10 minutes from Traders. My 19-year-old daughter got 3 pairs of shoes for Rm $39 each from Times Square,10 mins from Traders . There is a sauna and jacuzzi at the hotel for hotel guests without any extra charge . We will definitely go back to Traders again

Hotel was clean and we must congratulate the housekeeping team for doing such good job. However, we were rather disappointed that the 'Triple Room' we booked was actually a standard double room with additional bed. The size of the room and facilities was really not worth the price we paid. The hotel shouldn't try to pass off their double room as otherwise, by charging such high rates.

New shopping mall, 1st Avenue across the road. Central location & easy access to most tourist location. The traders club is valued for money. Enjoyed the all day tea-cakes, esp the cheese cake at the club lounge.

Excellent location but very affordable price. We stayed at the club room with dated decor. The club lounge is too small that is not attractive at all. We had our breakfast downstair at the cafe instead.

This is a good hotel for tourists visiting Penang. We had a Traders Club room and enjoyed the extensive views from the 17th floor. The pool was good, and we liked the shuttle service to the sister hotels at the beach resort of Batu Ferringhi. The only complaint is that the Traders Club lounge was too small and too popular, so it was hard to get a seat.

The breakfast was very good and cheap. The staff at the front desk, in the restaurant and the housekeeping staff were very friendly and helpful. The front desk staff go out of their way to assist us with street direction to places of interest and how to get there. The free internet access was a real bonus. A great place to stay.

The fixtures, furniture, etc, are are quite old, but generally it is a good hotel. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms are bigger than the S'pore branch and they even provide touchlight, which is a very thoughtful gesture. Too bad there is no jaccuzzi in the spa. Rception staffs can be more polite and friendly

Good value. The shuttle bus service is particularly useful and valuable for first-time Penang-visitors. Also the compliementary breakfast and evening cocktails definitely had helped us feeling relaxed (as Penang shops and restaurants do not open till very late in the morning- nearly 12 mid-day.)

My wife and I spent 5 delightful days at the Traders Hotel and we were impressed with the warmth, service and presentation of the hotel. Admittedly the decore is not 2010 style but it certainly is well presented, stylish re 2000 style and everyone went out of their way to make us feel welcome and to assist with any of our needs. The courtesy bus which links you with the Golden Sands Batu Feringi is certainly an added bonus for those wanting a day at the beach. Peterr Hurcum

The is a smell in the room. The rubbish bin is not clear every day. Although we stay 4 days 3 nights, only 2nd & last day have news paper. The used towel was not remove, although is a new one. Internet only available at level 4 and lobby, must get password for counter, very inconvenient. Bottled drinking water was not replenish everyday.
