“So nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2012

I stay there 5 nights. Very impressive in many services eg. arrival service, room service, the hotel looks a bit old but inside is very clean and neat. I like the bed there, so comfortable, still miss it right now. The pool looks relax, nice colour matching-contrast ; blue pool and yellow umbrella. Hotel's amenities are good quality, they provide glycerine soup, nice shower gel, better quality of toothbrush set. The hotel location is a bit far away from crowded area, but still easy to access orchard rd. by walking around 5 mins. And then if you walk more 5 mins, you will find the MRT orchard to go around Singapore. Next to the hotel, there is Tangling Mall, a small shopping mall with food court and supermarket.

Room Tip: Please select the room at the pool side, you will feel more relax with nice pool and blue sky.

Being part of the Shangri-La group, the Traders is one notch below the top brand Shangri-La itself. Built in 1995, the Traders Singapore is a great vaue for money in an otherwise expensive hotel city. The rooms are small, simple, perhaps boring, and the hallway carpets are worn. Beds are comfy, great pillows:-) The basic room-only price is reasonable, so I decided, at check-in to upgrade for a mere SGD 60.00 to get the free wifi in rooms and access to lounge on top floor with breakfast. This is highly recommended if you want to relax in quiet lounge surroundings or work in the rooms.

In fact, the rooms are a bit disappointing, still kept in the mid-90'es look, but what really makes Traders a nice place to stay is the pool area, very family friendly and really feels like a resort, one of the best hotel pool areas I have seen in Singapore (besides the Shangri-la hotel itself, but of course, a complete different price category!). The fitness room right next door is very big and well equipped, dining facilities by the pool (Chinese restaurant) or in the well visited Lobby bar and restaurant. Orchard Road is ca. 10-15 mins walk away. Staff is friendly and smiling, check-in and out was efficient. A nice option to consider when travelling to Singapore.

Room Tip: It is worth considering upgrading to club level to have a room on the top floor - mich more quiet.

I've stayed here a number of times for work. We've also lived in Singapore so we know Singapore pretty well. This is by far the best all round hotel. Depending on when you're in Singapore the average rate makes the hotel excellent for value for money. The hotel is in an awesome location within crawling distance to the botanical gardens, to orchard road and is attached to tanglin mall - a great little mall with some wonderful individual shops and more importantly restaurants. If you want an affordable brekkie and coffee in the morning it also has a Starbucks. Also try out beviamos a great expat hang out with a nice flat white and tasty food. There is a plush Japanese and a nice Thai upstairs too. Rooms are of ok size but again great for the price. The pool area is relaxing and well equipped with a gym. The best part I've enjoyed is the staff. Amit one of the managers was incredibly helpful and has helped in returning to the hotel too. Thanks again! Stay here for work or pleasure you will not be disappointed because of the great value and all round appeal. Big fan!

We first stayed here in Oct 2009 for 3 nights. We found it to be a great place with a short stroll to Tanglin Mall where we could shop for little items. The pool and Gym/Sauna is great. We stayed there again in May 2011. There was a little issue with the last stay regarding the room size for 3 of us however the staff upgraded us allowing to use the Business lounge where we could drink a cold beer, have some nibblies and watch the world go by.

We were in Singapore for a 4days-and-3nights tour package and I love how I could sleep so comfortably here at Traders Hotel. The bed, pillows, and duvet offered respite after a long day of walking around Sentosa and standing in line at Universal Studios. Our room was clean and well-equipped with a fridge, mini bar, eating utensils, a water boiler, clothes rack, writing desk, television, etc. It also has a view of the pool. Their buffet breakfast complete with fruits, American and Asian dishes, and a variety of drinks really brightened my day before every tour. :) The service is also great! We met a Filipino staff by the concierge who assisted us most of the time even with our minor requests like picture-taking. The staff at the cafe could definitely be friendlier though. I barely see them smile or look relaxed. Most of them looked tired and some are even grumpy. However, they're pretty fast and would clear up your table every few minutes at the breakfast buffet (although sometimes this can get irritating since I had to get up again and again to get new drinks coz they often took my half-empty glass away). By the way, they serve the same menu for breakfast buffet everyday. They would only change maybe around 5 dishes. My mum complained about having to eat the same thing over and over again but I didn't care since there were a lot of foods I haven't tried the previous day.

The only thing that I found troublesome was a lack of electric outlets near the bed. The outlets were located on the side of a desk by the window in our room so I couldn't use my mobile while in bed. After a long day of touring and consuming my mobile's battery power, I didn't want to sit by the desk just so I could use my phone while it charges up.

If you're planning to shop at high-end stores, you'll find this hotel's location to be great as it's only a few minutes walk to Orchard Road where plenty of shopping malls and restaurants lie. Transportation might have been an issue if there wasn't a tour bus servicing us to and from the tourist spots. If you're planning to roam around Singapore rogue-style, you'd be better off at a hotel near MRTs unless you wanna spend more via a cab.

It may be a pricey accommodation but we had fun and we were able to relax so it's worth it. :)

We stayed here 3 nights in May and had a great time. This hotel has a very nice pool and spa facilites. The buffet dinner at Ah Hoi's Kitchen was wonderful. Lovely hotel with stunning rooms. Great service. The rooms was very spacious. This hotel is great for business travelers or anyone that likes to shopping. Orchard Road is only 3-5 min walk. Will stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights to start out honeymoon. The hotel was fabulous - very comfortable and the staff are very helpful and informative. We spent a lot of the time in the marina area of Singapore which was about a 5-10 min cab ride, but taxis are not expensive so no problem there. We would certainly stay here again and would recommend as a good stay for perhaps 3 nights. I would say it is set up more for business people - but as said, serves a good location for us tourists too! Thank you Traders hotel for a great start to our honeymoon :)
