Traders staffs were a welcome Oasis of rest and comfort for the few hot sweltering days in Penang. Although it was a bit dated. It maintained its grace by its staff especially the front-desk staff. Its location is excellence too beside 3 shopping mall and beside the UNESCO heritage site of Georgetown. My travelling companions and I were able to... More

The staffs are really very cheerful and helpful despite the fact that they maybe busy with other guests. It really gives you the feeling of being welcomed. One will be able to do their shopping nearby as its within walking distance from the hotel. There are 3 shopping complexes namely Komtar, 1st Avenue and Prangin Mall. I would recommend Traders...

My family and I were in town for Chinese New Year (our stay was from 1st to 4th February, 2014 to be exact) and we chose to stay at Traders Hotel, Penang. Only my parents had been to Penang before so it was a first time for my siblings and I. The pros: - Clean, spacious club rooms - Location:... More

Good location with easy access. Connected to malls which provides easy access for quick shopping fix. Walking distance to a lot of food places within Georgetown. Room felt worn out and need to be refreshed. Didn't think I'd still be seeing/using old TV set in the room.

Traders is located in front of the bus terminal and next to several shopping malls. Local food stalls are within walking distance of 15 mins. But only a few are opened for breakfast. The guys at Concierge are very helpful and friendly. We hired a 11 seater MPV through their recommendation and we were satisfied with the roominess and price.

Stayed here with my family from 9 to 11 May for a short vacation. Got the airport transfer and it was easy to transport my family from the airport and back. The hotel is situated in a very central location, near major shopping malls and several local attractions. Service was excellent, and every request, such as late checkout or morning... More

We stayed here right after staying in the Traders in KL. This hotel was a bit older and less trendy. The location is just on the edge of the colonial city Georgetown. It's a decent hotel and we had a good experience. Overall a bit of a vanilla experience though. If I were to return I would stay at a... More
