Out of date and tired looking

Close to town
Amenities and carpet old. The usual Asian hospitality was missing in this hotel. On the last day the room keys were not able to open doors. Reason given was that the battery went flat. I will not stay in this hotel again.

Easy to find and move around

Easy to find, close to shopping centre, easy to move around.
This hotel is abit old decoration style in 80-90s- wood rich. However everything is still working well. The hotel is next to Komtar (main bus station), so you can take bus everywhere and come back easily. The hotel is close to shopping centers you can find restaurants , coffee shops and shops, can walk to George Town world heritage in 5-10 minutes.

God location

Location,convenience and food
The best thing about this hotel is the superb location in the centre between old Georgetown and the rest of Penang downtown right next to the Komtar tower. Most of the street food attractions here in Penang are within walking distance. The hotel is clean but a bit dated. It probably needs to be renovated to keep up with the times. It has an excellent gym, well equipped with a spa as well. The swimming pool was good too. The bedrooms were clean. Again the furnishings were a little dated. Staff were friendly and helpful. If I were to return back to this hotel it's got to be the location!

Conveniently located. Nice and clean room.
Not bad. Hotel feels old and jaded but comfortable. Good value for money. Staff were friendly and approachable.

A Week in Georgetown, Penang

Good location to all town centre amenities. Gym with sufficient equipment with long opening hours. Check-in in under 10 minutes.
Comfortable stay with good service throughout stay. Nearly got onto the wrong pick-up on departure due to an earlier vehicle at entrance. It would have been better if the registration plate was provided to guest with pre-booked pick-up to avoid potential confusion.

Long stay satisfies

Accommodation Location Staff Friendliness
Business and pleasure combined when staying close to Georgetown historic area and the many new fresh cafe restaurant and mall. You sat Mall? Yes, on raining afternoon it was a pleasure to wonder an upscale mall next door. In the evenings we were delighted to walk to many new bistro, cafe, restaurants as well as a few established venues. The hotel is gracious too allow shuttle to their location on Batu Ferrenghi for beach addition to your Traders experience. Tastful singers in the large and well lay-out lounge entry lobby is an Asia visit bonus.

Friendly staff

Lovely staff, comfortable room, generous Happy Hour
Always enjoy our stay at Traders and impressed staff remember us and welcome us by name. Club rooms are comfortable and Happy Hour cocktails & canopies very generous. Shower over bath is rather lacking in power, compared with most these days, though bathroom otherwise well equipped. A very poor hairdryer is screwed into a drawer - not what you expect in a quality Hotel - and needs to be upgraded for something more user-friendly and powerful. But we'll be back!
