“Usual Efficient Standard”
Reviewed February 17, 2009

In the UAE for a regular business trip. The problem is with Dubai generally is everything is spread uot all over the place. there is no CBD of any note.

This being the case, as a business traveller I like to be near-ish to the airport and this one is only 10 minutes away. Set on a busy intersection and, directly in front, the new train system is being constructed which will be a great help from the end on 2009.

The other downside of Dubai is the cost of accomodation. I mostly stay at Shangri-La properties but for a business trip the one located here is way over the top in price. Traders is the cheaper, business focussed, chain run by the same group.

This being the case the staff are very well trained and go out of their way to help you whenever they can. Nothing is a problem. Rooms are perfectly fine, looking out onto nothing in particular. A weird shower arrangement where you stand, seemingly, on the floor next to the bath and soak up behind a fixed glass screen It works OK though.

Being a business hotel it does not have fine dining restaurants, lovely outdoor pool areas (there is a small indoor one but its not very inviting), etc. but we're there for work, right? I qualify for club entry and that helps you spread out after a days work before you head off for dinner.

One major annoyance, there is no metered taxi rank outside available when you need it. The staff do the best they can by standing on the corner waving at passing vehicles trying to get one to stop. Occasionally they're successful but more often not. That leaves you with the option of a contracted limo company. No meter, high negotiated hourly or destination fare.

The big tip is, if your working between different locations in the Emirates, is get a metered cab (somehow) and ask him to sit and wait at every location. You will pay half the price and he'll be there every morning to pick you up at a specified time. ALSO, the hotel will pey him cash on return every day and put it on the bill. The only way to go.

All in all, very efficient, great helpful staff, good rooms. Will definitely choose it next time I'm there working. probably not if I bring my wife.

Second stay in the Traders,just as good as the first time.
Staff can't do enough for you, any time day or night.
Checked in Sat morning,upgraded to Traders club 6th floor,very nice indeed. Room was large and clean,and very pleasent.
Breakfast was excellent,plenty of choice,and all very tasty.
Metro being built outside,but no noise at all. Should be interesting when it's finished, might improve the traffic, and the taxi problems.
All in all a very nice hotel,in a very nice area. Worth the price and more!!

Beautiful hotel, helpful staff, good food, beautiful bedroom.

BUT the room was supposed to be wheelchair accessible and I couldn't wheel through the bathroom door! Staff removed door - still not wide enough; showed us a suite - access was worse; brought the hotel's own wheelchair - even that wouldn't go through! Finally removed the wheel rims of their wheelchair and it just scraped through. I transferred into it, went into the bathroom to find that it had not been adapted in any way. The toilet was at an angle in a corner and there were no bars on the wall. The shower and bath were behind a glass screen and the opening was about 40cms.

Thank Goodness it was just a one night stopover on our way to Australia.

  • Liked — Comfortable bed. Excellent noise and heat insulation.
  • Disliked — Could not get into supposedly accessible bathroom in my wheelchair.

Traders Hotel Dubai

We found this hotel to be very comfortable, with all the facilities one could ask for. The room was quite big, with an enormous bed, wardrobe, safe, desk and chair, TV, coffee/tea, broadband internet access (cable provided) to laptop (at a cost) and a reasonably-sized bathroom. It was all quite new, but most things are in Dubai.

Breakfast was good, with plenty of choice (hot & cold). I used the gym (adequate); others in my group tried out the lap pool and spa.

The location may not have been ideal (it didn’t seem close to anything), but the hotel arranged taxis or larger vehicles as necessary, and it wasn’t that much of a bother.

I’d highly recommend the dinner in the desert as an outing. Pick up and drop off at our hotel; 4WDs through the dunes, camels and Bedouins, henna tattoos, hookah pipes, belly dancing, and heaps of great food (alcohol for sale too).

  • Liked — The room was pretty goo.

Arrived early hours after flight from thailand found the staff very pleasent and helpfull, found room very clean and tidy also a nice size.
Found breakfast to be very good lots of choice and the chef ready to cook you eggs just the way you want them !
Had dinner twice in the hotel and both times we really enjoyed it highly recommended.
The staff all over the hotel were very helpful and pleasent and a smile was never to much trouble NICE !
The position of the hotel was also a good one being close to all amenities beach,shops,souks and airport would recommend this hotel to all and will return, only one downside we booked a room with a double bed but had to do with a twin room none left apparently, didnt let that spoil it though.

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.
