The Traders' staff were friendly, and quick to attend to any issues. The rooms were well-kept, and the bed very comfortable. Free and fast Internet was appreciated, although it was only wi-fi, with no ethernet. Location-wise, it was acceptable -- but this is more an issue with the Georgetown area rather than the hotel -- it's difficult to say where a "good" location in Georgetown would be. The city is not especially walking-friendly, nor is it easy to hail a cab, and does not have a modern mass transit system like the larger SE Asian cities (subway or train). As I opted to explore the area on foot, the hotel seemed like an oasis amidst the heat and traffic. I'm unsure if I would visit Penang again, but if I did I would have no issues staying at Traders, which is a fine hotel.
