We took a Traders Club twin tower view room and had a great experience from check in really. Nice staff in the Traders Club and just in time for the eveing cocktail hour!
Beautiful room, clean, well appointed, modern bathroom with supplies like an emery board, laundry powder, toothpaste etc and some nice water pressure in the shower. An excellent breakfast buffet which even had a chocolate fountain for those chocaholics out there! We also had the dinner buffet which was varied and delicious. The hotel is halal so no pork products though I can thoroughly recommend all of the food especially the truffle mash potatoes. So good I severely broke my low carb diet there!! Also a great location and friendly staff all through the hotel.
Downside...the bed was like a slab of concrete. And yes, I know that beds in Asia are firm, I have been in a few of them myself. We also have a firm bed at home, love me a firm bed! This bed however was back breakingly firm. Each morning I woke up with major back and neck pain (my fiance also) that didn't ease until after I had a hot shower and did some stretches/moving about. I don't suffer from a bad back or anything either. The pillows to match the concrete slab were super soft and limp feather which added to the pain really. We managed to get some different pillows but I am glad we didn't stay there any longer than 3 nights. I would need a room with a more modern and comfortable bed as this one looked very old upon investigation and strangely exactly like the beds used in the NZ Prison system...so yeah sleep quality was horrendous.
Other than that we really did love the Traders Hotel. The Skybar was fantastic, delicious bar snack food up there, chicken wings were boss! And well priced drinks with a daily special not to mention just plain awesome atmosphere! I really didn't want to leave...well as long as I could change to a different bed anyway. If I could have that then I would move into this hotel!
It was almost a 5/excellent rating but the bed was just too bad to ignore.
