    Good

    The location was excellent as the hotel is located in the centre of Penang, accessibility to all tourist sights are within easy reach.

    The furniture n carpet was quite old and worn out. The pillows were not firm enough, too low thus can't support my neck which lead to a stiff neck. The shower not powerful enough on the jet setting.

    Very good

    It is located near the good street food area and shopping area. Very convenience!

    Not sure why the trader's check in staff was reluctant to check me in as i used my husband to book. He is not excited that my husband didnt check in with me although i tried showing him my booking reference number with my same credit card number written. Very suspicious of my booking validity...

    Nice hotel. Very convenient. Pranging Mall and 1st Avenue are just next to the hotel. The staff are friendly. I booked 2 rooms and requested for a connecting room but since the hotel is fully booked, we couldn't get a connecting room but the staff managed to get us 2 rooms next to each other. Easy access. About 15 minutes from Penang bridge. I am very pleased with the free internet connection given in the room.

    Very good

    The location is excellent with easy access to different tourist sites. Staff were polite and helpful when approached.

    Though the room is generally clean, some of the room facilities like bathtub look old and worn out.

    Very good

    The Traders Club facilities were good value. Good location to visit the old part of Georgetown.

    Traffic around the hotel and the problems this created with walking in the immediate vicinity

  • 7.4
    Very good

    The service was very good and the rooms are clean and of a pretty good size. The transport desk at the hotel is very helpful and they don't force you to use hotel cars (they will call tour operators and get better rates)

    It's not a luxurious hotel- its good for business/ budget but I would not consider it to be one of the hipper hotels.
