San E. Families with older children Malaysia, August 31, 2013
Fast, Easy Accessible and Comfy.

Friendly staff, Excellent Location, Comfy Rooms.
Service was excellent upon arrival, Staff was friendly and would help to arrange rooms with any request. This hotel is located at the central of Penang. It is easily accessible as there are many taxi parked right infront of the hotel. Many famous and yummylicious local restaurants are located walking distance away.

Decent and Clean Hotel

Near to Shopping Centre, Friendly Staff, Centrally located
1) I stayed in deluxe room 1325 and it was good. Clean toilet and bed was comfortable. Free wifi connection and the speed was fast. But limited TV channels. I suggest to include singapore channels. 2) Hotel breakfast was good. Beverages such as, Latte, cappucino were included in the buffet. 3) But if you are looking for massages near hotel, then this hotel is not suitable as there are no massages or spas beside the hotel. There are 3 shopping malls just beside the hotel. 1st avenue doesnt has a massage place. Praglin mall has spas but limited. Komtar has none and is dull. 4) The hotel provides shuttle service to Golden sands hotel shangrila at Batu Ferringi which is a plus point. you can use golden sand swimming pool facilities. But you have to book the shuttle earlier. 5) The hotel is about 40mins drive to Batu Feringi and 30 mins drive to Penang Hill and about 15mins drive to Gurney drive. Taxi fare are between 15rin to 40rin and taxi drivers didnt cheat with the taxi fare. You can catch midnight movies at Prangin mall. Its walking distance to historical places and also to Little India. Overall, its a good hotel but I feel sad that there were no massage place nearby or even night markets.After 10pm, you have nothing much to do except to watch midnight movies in cinema or go for drinks. If you looking for massages and night markets best to stay in batu ferringi.

1.complete set of toiletries. 2. Attentive and friendly staff. 3. Centrally located.
Good and pleasant stay. Wide selection of asian and western food. All staff were able to communicate in English which is very good and important for us.Club room facilities with rooms on the top most 2 floors were very well thought out and convenient for us.Clean room and toilets.

Graham S. Couples United Kingdom, August 25, 2013
Well run long established hotel

Clean rooms, well organised breakfast service, free car parking
Although I visit Penang regularly this was my first time at Traders which is located in the heart of Georgetown. The hotel is efficiently run with complimentary stuff that is rather unexpected at the reasonable price. Complimentary newspaper, fruit bowl, internet make you feel well looked after. TV channel choice is a bit limited and the room decorations looked a bit dated but the place is very clean and everything worked. Gym is well maintained and towels are clean and plentiful. Its basically a business hotel but OK for a city break vacation too. Three shopping malls nearby although Komtar the oldest is now very run down. Breakfast buffet is well run with friendly helpful staff who bring coffee and tea by the jug and offer you free-flow juices brought to your table. Everything on the buffet looked good although the choice is not the widest I have seen. The hotel car park is quite small but there were always spaces available for guests and once you registered your car you could go in and out as often as you liked without needing to revalidate your ticket at reception every time. The car park has no lifts so make sure you unload your heavy luggage at the drop-off point before entering the car park.
