Wanted a change from our normal overnight stay at the Hulhule before heading out for our holiday at the Conrad, so decide to stay at the Traders.
With Hulhule you are at hotel in 5 mins, rooms are ok but overpriced. We arrived on SQ night flight and had been assured we would be transferred immediately by boat to the hotel. Had requested one extra bed. Transfer took for ever and then no extra bed which we had to chase up 3 times. Took 1.5 hours to sort all out. Oh you have to walk from the jetty to the hotel - its only a couple of hundred yards though ...
Check out was a shambles. We were meant to be transferred at 6.45am (originally 6.15am) for 7.15am seaplane. Sounds short but all doable - we've done it before, it is 10 mins to the seaport. Waited and waited for someone to take our bags to the jetty, we ended up doing it ourselves. Got to seaport late and ended up on a 8.15am flight.
Nice rooms, good bathrooms (much better than Hulhule), noisier than Hulhule as in Male. You save about US$100 per night, if you have time (and not tired young children) worth doing, if not choose Hulhule
