Frank K. Couples Singapore, July 1, 2012
Great location with good food nearby

Comfortable room
Traders Hotel had always been one of my favourite choice when I choose an accomodation in a location I am unfamiliar with. The staff are accomodating to the guests' needs. I am coming back again when I return to Penang.
Restaurant Tip: There is a food stall opposite the hotel that opens till late at night that serves nice local food.

Needs a bit of update but a nice hotel.

Swimming pool and fitness centre
Trouble booking in and getting the room I had booked for but after this everything went well. Staff were friendly and helpful ( especially Abdullah in the swimming pool area. Comfortable and pleasant stay.

Overall is good

Clean and helpful employees
When i was been to the hotel, my first impression is it is not model and a bit old buliding. A number of renovation sites surrounding the hotel...no seaview only building. Although it is not a very nice building, I feel there is a lot of very helpful and nice staff. They will take intitaitve to help you find the place you are looking for, suggest you some ways to have sightseeing in Penang. If the price a bit lower will be much much better.

Lovely hotel with good service

convenient location, good security, clean pool and comfortable stay
i stayed in trader's hotel with my family in june 2012 and we have enjoyed our stay there. the hotel has good facilities such as swimming pool, gym, sauna etc. the hotel staff are friendly and helpful. it has a wide lobby area which has a live band at night for all nights except for sunday. location is very convenient as there are 3 shopping centres just next to the hotel (1st avenue, pranglin mall and komtar). also, we are able to get a free ride on the city bus at komtar bus terminal which brings us around the georgetown area and back to komtar. although the room furnishings may be old, the bed is comfortable and the room is clean. overall, an enjoyable stay with trader's hotel and i will consider my next stay with this hotel again if i am back to penang next time.

Great location and excellent service

Central location next to Komtar Center/shopping centres and within walking distance to good eating places.
Enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Front desk and concierge services are excellent.
Restaurant Tip: Good food at the New World Park food court and One Corner Cafe.

Good location, Excellent Staff

The location, ease of access by car. Next to First Avenue mall. Excellent staff.
It's a 3D2N stay and overall, the room is quite comfortable. The front desk staff are very friendly, helpful and alert. My check out was completed within minutes. The only area which i'm not impressed is the closet which was cramp with a safe, an iron board, two bathrobes which leave no space to hang my clothes.

Josie G. Couples Philippines, June 23, 2012
Great location

The hotel is located centrally. It is right next to the komtar complex where the bus interchange terminal is located.
it was a short discovery trip of penang. we stayed at the traders hotel georgetown. it has nice clean rooms and ihas great location. it is located within the historic district of georgetown. it is right next to komtar complex where just about all of the different buses to the different parts of the ci passes through. it is so easy to get around riding the bus. the staff were very helpful finding our way around. the hotel is also walking distance to jalan mcallister were good, inexpensive food could be had especially during dinner time.
Restaurant Tip: Try the roadside food stalls along jalan Mcallister just infront of the sunway hotel. Good, inexpensive, authentic Penang food could be found.

"Warm welcome with good services"

Parking lot is spacious
Warm welcome with fast check-in. In addition, very polite front desk with sweet smile. Swimming pool with lifeguard made me felt safe when my kids were in the pool. There are some imperfection about the inner decor of hotel room and bathroom which seem old if compare to other Traders hotel. Not forget to mention their continental breakfast which I ordered for room service is worth my penny , they provided very big breakfast which more than enough for my three kids. It is absolutely delicious. Worth stay here with best offer from Agoda.
Nyap M. Couples Malaysia, June 23, 2012
old traditional hotel

Still in good condition and not that bad
The price was definately worth it and it was super near to the malls. But it just slight looks old and retro to me. Overall, it was ok.
