“Comfy room, free wifi in good location near Orchard Road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2009

I was on the last weekend of a 85 weekend tour of Asia. Not that I'd been staying at expensive places like Traders very often but it was my last weekend away so Hey! I thought I'd treat myself. The room was very cozy and was nicely cleaned each day after I'd gone out. The free newspaper left on the door handle was a nice touch. Use of gym was good although they did insist I wore trainers - I resorted to buying some cheap sneakers having only worn flipflops for the past year!

The room alone cost £60 per night which came with free wifi. I thought of having breakfast in the hotel but not at their prices! So instead walked for ten minutes down to Orchard Road where there's a couple of cheaper cafes. Be warned Singapore is expensive! Having travelled throughout Thailand, Malaysia, India, Sri Lanka etc., Singapore came as a shock to the system - a pint of beer was over £6! but at least the tube system is cheap and walking is cheaper. I chose Traders as I'd read good reviews here and wanted to be close to Orchard Road but it doesn't really matter where you stay in Singapore due to the subway system and cheap taxis.

I had no complaints about the hotel but would have preferred somewhere cheaper now I've received my credit card statement!

Amazing hotel with huge rooms, fabulous beds and a gorgeous pool. The staff were excellent and very attentive. I used the spa for a massage which was luxury itself. A wonderful place to stay en route to Australia.

This hotel offers excellent location to explore Singapore away from the busier areas. It is positioned at the far end of Orchard Road, I would recommend either the sia tour bus which is 12 dollars a day (6 if you travel with Singapore airlines and keep your flight ticket boarding pass). This gives you a ride around all of singapore and an idea of the sights to visit, definately recommend as a first port of call to get your bearings. It stops right outside the hotel on the opporsite side of the road, walk over the walkway to the bus stop. We experenced the singapore flier, deffinately recommend a try, China Town for authentic visit Da Dong restaurant it is on a corner, excellent duck, noodles, chicken etc, Little India try Jappura restaurant, it was the busiest we found and excellent food and finally a must vist to the Shashlick restaurant a local secret, go to far east shopping centre then to the 6th floor, the steaks and other meat dishes are the best I have ever tasted. We visited the zoo, Malacca, King Ho boat ride, Sentosa, botanic garden and boat quay etc all fantastic experiences. If you visit Sentosa, try the louge ride and remember when booking 'once is not enough' a tip for you. All in all it was an excellent adventure for our group and our second visit to Singapore and it was even better than the first visit, it just keeps on getting better all the time, we stayed for 6 nights and then a further night (1.5 days) before our return journey home. Would definately recommend a visit and this hotel is clean, friendly, convenient, I cannot fault it really a good stay was had by all. A final tip, if you book this hotel try and get breakfast included, we booked with trailfinders and it was exclusively included for all trailfinder's guests, otherwise it will cost you £20 per head each day which is quite pricey, but it is worth it as there is a lot of choice.
Have a happy stay if visiting any time soon................

We had booked the Traders Hotel through our travel agent and arrived at 7.00am off a Singapore Air flight from Athens feeling sub-human. While we were charged S100 for an upgrade/early check in/breakfasts/late check out, this was absolutely worth it. The Traders is not new but the rooms are of a very good standard, the breakfast was probably the best I have had (from much experience) and the staff were efficient and very helpful. The pool area is great too. All round a fantastic stay. Thank you.

Just back from a 3 day stay. We upgraded to the Club rooms which were definately worth it for the breakfast and cocktail hour alone.

The staff in the hotel are excellent and always so pleasant. I had read before we booked about the rooms being on the small size and they weren't wrong! The actual room was roughly the size of the cabin on our last cruise. The hotel itself is good though and has a lovely pool area and we especially liked the fact that the hotel connected to the Tanglin Mall. The hotels location is a bit out of the way but with a 10 min walk you are in the centre of Orchid Rd.

Taxi's are inexpensive and very easy to get. We found the shopping and drinks expensive mainly due to the exchange rate for GBP at the moment.

This was the second time I have stayed at the Traders and they made sure they greeted me as an old friend... This is their trade mark; the location is ok but doesn't have the views of Clark Quay, the rooms are small compared to other Singapore hotels BUT the rooms are v clean, the service is excellent and the staff seem to remember who you are and greet you as an old friend which I love.
The spa is well worth a visit for reasonably priced massages and facials - I recommend the Executive package - for equivalent of £45 for 90 minutes - great value and attention to detail.
Free wireless is included and is super fast - plus you are moments from Orchard road and the Tanglin Mall.

Traders in Singapore is a superb hotel - efficient and courteous staff, well located, pleasant public rooms and the most incredible breakfast.
Rooms may be small - but they are exceptionally well-designed to make best use of the available space. We, as most visitors, spent more time exploring the wonderful city - don't think many visitors to Singapore would wish to spend long periods of time in their hotel room. Distance from Orchard Road was easily walkable - even in the heat and humidity. Alternatively, taxis always available at the door of the hotel. Mall linked via walkway from hotel offered pleasant shopping (cafes, ATM, pharmacy, supermarket, clothes etc) literally on the doorstep.
The availability of the 'laundromat' areas on several floors offered a brilliant alternative to using the hotel laundry services. I do wish more hotels would adopt this idea, especially for travellers who travel onwards quickly - as we did on this trip - could not wait for 24 hour laundry service whilst in Singapore.

Would not hesitate to return.
