I understand if it's a budget hotel w/o bellman, lobby wasn't that bad, c/i smooth since already booked through Agoda. Key card doesn't really work well, it kept on appearing red after few times only turned green. The room given to us looks old but I heard it's a new hotel but it doesn't reach my expectation. Bathroom/Toilet - Toilet... More

I've spent the last 2 weeks at SSL Traders. The rooms are clean and I think the place has been renovated recently. I spent one week in a room looking at the army base across the road (not a bad sunset view), and one week looking at the row houses behind the hotel (ok mountain view). Both rooms were quite... More

I stayed in a hotel although I have family in Taiping but due to work I needed a place with free wifi in the rooms. My first choice was actually Flemington at the Lake Garden but it was full (even on a Thursday! and it's not even a holiday week). This hotel is fairly close from my in laws place... More

I stayed at this hotel for many times having business trips to Taiping/Kamunting. The first impression was that it was a beautiful low budget boutique hotel. The hotel was quite new then. The rooms are small and do not have proper maintenance. Damaged a/c control, shower tap, shower head and sometimes squeaky bed. Breakfast was included but the food quality... More

The rooms are of standard size pretty clean ,good service and friendly staff. As such, nothing much to add on these aspects. The Wifi didn’t work for us in the rooms as they claimed. The main area to be highlighted is their restaurant. The food needs a long way to go to be certified “good” especially for vegetarians like us.... More

Took my family (5 paxs) for a 3 days 2 nights to Taiping. We stayed to choose at SSL Traders Hotel because I wanted a good hotel for my family. I was not disappointed with this hotel service, location and cleanliness. We booked 2 rooms (super deluxe) and requested for nearby rooms and the reservation team did their best to... More

Probably my worst stay in a hotel anywhere. The room was small and not very clean - in several places a hot iron had melted the carpet. The bed linen was stained and the towels small and almost threadbare. The water in shower was lukewarm at best - not a great way to start the day. Interference on the television... More

Had a short stay at SSL and I must say we were pleasantly surprised by the room and the lay out. Better than what we expected. Will definitely stay here again when in Taiping next. Tip : best to ask for rooms facing the back of the building as it will probably be quieter than the one facing the main... More

Stayed here with family for a night in March 2013. Check in was pretty smooth as I've pre-booked months earlier since I know it is school holiday. Room-wise is pretty decent, very clean and well maintained. The only drawdown of the hotel is the food (breakfast)- tasteless and limited. Overall, it is still a decent hotel to stay.
