Pleasant vry professional staff & nice hotel

Posted Jul 12, 2014
From check-in to check-out it all worked nicely. Rooms need a decor face lift - but everything worked perfectly, did not encounter excessive noise & all the staff (from Reception to Room Service) were efficient & wonderful to deal with at all times.

nice hotel at end of orchard road

Posted Jul 2, 2014
Pros: very nice outdoor pool long enough to swim laps in
Location: Location is reasonably close to Orchard Road MRT stop.
Overall great experience. Breakfast buffer a bit pricey, but you can just buy coffee and some yogurt from the side bar in the lobby if you're a light breakfast person

An OK Hotel With Average Facilities

Posted Jun 30, 2014
Pros: Clean room
Cons: The room decor looked tired - it needs a refreshing.
Location: Everything is away from the hotel - 10 minute walk to Orchard road and the MRT (really easy to navigate and cheaper than taking a taxi)
The Trader Hotel is an average business class hotel in Singapore. It's a good 10 - 15 minute walk to the closest MRT Station - Orchard. There is a shuttle that takes you there from the hotel but if you miss it you'll walk or take a cab. The hotel offers a dinner buffet which on the night I and my wife had it was somewhat lacking - mostly Asian offerings with an ok offering of seafood but no carving station for those that may of wanted something else but Asian food. The standard rooms are just that - plain vanilla clean but on the small side. The bathroom was clean and also rather small. If you're looking for a hotel away from busy Orchard road away from most attractions and don't mind walking to get to the MRT then this is the place for you - IF you swing a good rate! I definitely wouldn't pay rack rates for this hotel. There are other choices with better offerings in Singapore so shop around for a "best rate".

Favourite Hotel in Singapore

Lovely, upmarket but unpretentious hotel with friendly staff, good facilities and location. The pool area is fantastic, as is the poolside restaurant. I've been staying regularly at Traders for about 12 years. It has never disappointed me.

A good place to stay..

Posted May 12, 2014
This hotel is strategically located and it is just next to a mall.. So food wise, no problem if you do not wish to have it at the hotel.. Shuttle services is available and on time from hotel to the nearest shopping paradise, the Orchard Road.. Overall, a well recommended place to stay..

Very Neat, Excellent Service

Posted May 5, 2014
I booked via Expedia 30 days beforehand. Everything is organized and I don't have to follow up the confirmation if I was really booked. I arrived 10am which is too early for the check in time at 2pm, but they made a way for me to check in early without additional cost. The room was really clean, same with the towels and pillows, etc. The hotel is connected to Tanglin Mall where you can easily access the shops, especially when you want to buy some food to munch in your room. I had to check out at 12nn, but my flight is at 8pm, so they allowed me to leave my luggages in the morning so I can still stroll around. Over all, I like the service of the staff and the excellent room service / housekeeping that they provided throughout my stay.

Old & Expensive

Posted Apr 29, 2014
Pros: Location and Staff
Cons: Desperate need of a renovation.
The hotel is old and well in need of renovation. Wall paper was peeling from moisture in the walls !!! Not what you would expect for this price $$$ Very small toilets .... The good side is the staff are excellent and very helpful , the location of the hotel is good.

Great hotel friendly staff

Posted Apr 23, 2014
Pros: Everything
Location: Great shopping mall close by and only a twenty minute trip to seƱora island
Traveling with two young children alone was a little unnerving but the hotel staff were fantastic. Great hotel in a wonderful location, when traveling back to Singapore we will stay here again.
