Strange rebranding

Friendly staff, comfortable room, generous Club floor facilities
We keep returning to Jen though feel the condition, ambience etc is more suited to Traders, its previous name. The staff are as delightful as ever despite those new uniforms. The most junior get the best deal in smart black & white, while managerial staff are indistinguishable from customers. The rest have to suffer a very unflattering supposedly 'casual' look, with hard to read Wild West type name badges. Club rooms may be old fashioned and tired in places, but are large and comfortable and Club Lounge facilities very generous. Despite the embarrassing 'Jen' - a mythical figure encouraging you to drink in 'my' bar, swim in 'my' pool and have a good time in 'my' Hotel - we keep returning as it offers very good value and has become a home from home during our regular visits to Penang for medical reasons.

staff totally quick at check in counter. friendly. food looks great and variety.
Great and comfortable overall. Friendly and efficient staff. Great location with lots of hawker stall around. But slightly uncomfortable as the toilet bowl is very painful to sit on.

comfortable stay

Prompt response at check in. The non-smoking room was well maintained. They gave 1 hour extension for check out (my program was at the hotel itself but finish only at 12 noon)
No issues at all. Will stay there again if coming to Penang again.

Not quite Traders........

Welcoming staff, comfortable room, Club Floor facilities
We always enjoy 'Traders' - now Hotel Jen. Don't feel the rebranding has been an improvement with a noticeable reduction of some of the nicer 'touches'. Rooms are very comfortable and the bed enormous. Only complaint: hairdryer is hard to find, uncomfortable to use and underpowered. Securing it to the base of a drawer seems an insult to the customer. However the staff are as friendly and welcoming as ever - despite those awful new uniforms!

Siow T. Business travelers Malaysia, March 24, 2015
Decent night stay, given price paid

Location, room amenities, and staff friendliness
No issues with checking into hotel. Room looked a bit outdated, but had sufficient amenities given its 4-star status. Location of the hotel is perfect i.e. next to the First Avenue Shopping Mall. Staff were generally friendly and helpful. Room size was decent, but could be bigger to allow more comfort i.e. more walking space. Would return, given the affordable rates for business travellers.
