“Fantastic Stay at Traders”
Reviewed August 30, 2008

Recently went to Dubai for a course with some friends. We each wanted separate rooms (go figure) and weren't looking for anything snazzy, just somewhere decent, clean and not too far away.

I used trip-advisor to help pick the place, and am forever grateful to this great site! The place was excellent. I mean it's not the classiest place to stay in Dubai by all means, but if you're looking to stay somewhere for a few nights and don't want to go overboard with your budget you can't go wrong with Traders.

Check-in was a breeze. Rooms were clean. Beds were comfy. Bathrooms had speakers! Gym was ok. Service was always top-notch.

However, I would like to point out the following: Tv's were ancient! Internet wasn't free, plus it was insanely slow! While it's close to the airport, it's pretty far from all the main attractions.

But the main reason I went was for a course, and Traders catered to my every needs. Therefore, I have no issues with the place and would definitely consider going again if all I wanted was an average-priced business hotel. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for 2 nights + could not fault the hotel. Staff great + very friendly. Only 5 minutes from the airport so very handy. The hotel had an indoor pool + gym - no outdoor pool but the hotel does run a courtesy bus to Al Mamzar beach. The hotel was spotless + very comfortable. Sometimes at night I found it a little noisy with people slamming their doors - this was no fault of the hotel, just the selfish guests!!! Would recommend this hotel.

We stayed at the Traders for three nights en route back to Australia. We arrived very late on the first night but were greeted by friendly and helpful staff.
The Traders was the most expensive hotel we stayed at on our trip and it showed in the quality of the room and its equipment and services.
Very helpful reception and guest relations staff; quite central to 'old' Dubai; adequate sized and very comfortable room with a superb spacious bathroom; excellent in-room facilities and services and the option of joining the Traders Club for an extra cost which we did.
It is well worth joining the Traders Club if you are there for more than a night or two as it includes the full breakfast plus daytime snacks and soft drinks, business centre access and the sundowners.

Upon arrival,check in was fast,and seamless.
We were given the option to upgrade to Executive floor for approx an additional USD$34 a night.This included free wireless in the rooms,cocktail hour(only good if you don't get stuck in a mall with a one hour queue for a taxi!!),the option to have breakfast and cocktails in the business lounge.
The hotel provide a taxi at a cost,and our driver was fantastic...he even played JT on request.
The location however wasn't that fantasic,in regards to shopping close by.There is a "mall" across the road,but mainly with local style shops.It is however very handy to the airport,so if you have a quick stopover this is perfect.

  • Liked — The breakfast was great
  • Disliked — Location..great hotel...makes up for the not so handy location

We have just arrived back in Australia after a 6 week Europe trip.
I would have to put Traders at the top of my list for accommodation. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff they were all polite and couldn't do enough for us. Food was great!
Accommodation was first class! and reasonably priced and the rooms were spotless! WELL DONE ! I have no problems recommending the Traders to anyone you won't be dissapointed
It made our short stay in Dubai very memorable. We'll be back.

We were a travelling party of 26 (5 families with children on a cricket trip to Dubai and Malta) and we needed a hotel in Dubai for 4 nights that wasn't too expensive but of good quality. Having read the TripAdvisor reviews, we decided on the Traders. It exceeded our expections.

Right from check-in to check out, our stay at the Traders was outstanding. The service was amazing. On our day of departure, the staff opened the restaurant at 5.00am for a lite breakfast before we flew out. And talking of breakfast, our party all agreed their breakfast buffet was amongst the best any of us had had anywhere in the world.

If you are looking for a good hotel, at a good price with outstanding service, and rooms that will sleep more than 3-4 people, Traders is the right hotel. And don't be put off by people saying it is not in a good location. Malls and supermarkets are very close by, and being relatively close to the airport is a comfort in a city that can experience terrible traffic congestion!!

Trader's Hotel Dubai is a good buy for Dubai. The rooms are beautiful, well kept and the staff is overall pretty friendly. For another $20 or so dollars, you can upgrade to the business executive floor. This is well worth it as it includes a buffet breakfast, free coffe and tea at anytime, access to the health club and many other perks. These are some of the pluses.

The negatives are: the inability of the staff to get a taxi whenever you want. Taxis are QUITE difficult to come by in Dubai so it is not entirely their fault. However, it seems for a four to five star hotel, they should have a taxi ready for you whenever you want. Also, at times, the staff is a bit hard to understand. Another downside is the location which is far away from the action.

Overall, I think anyone staying at Traders will be satisfied with their stay.
