Very convenient hotel, close to shops in Orchard

Posted Sep 19, 2014
Pros: Proximity to shops, pool area and price
Cons: Consideration should be given to how long the room is occupied, we paid for an extra night but only checked in at 0600
Location: Central location, close to shops, MTR and Botanic Gardens
Very restful staff very helpful, would be good if the hotel considered check in time, we paid for an extra night but only checked in at 0600 and could only get a two hour late check out.

Very convenient for the quieter side of town.

We are returning Singapore residents and know what we like. Traders is ideal for the Botanic Gardens and Holland area, yet still only a very short walk to Orchard Road and the MRT. The buffet breakfasts are superb, even by Asian hotel standards which are universally high. Ah Hoi's kitchen by the pool provides excellent Chinese food and a lovey atmosphere at night. Tanglin Mall Shopping Centre is can be accessed from the hotel and has a range of excellent caf├ęs and restaurants , food court and world class supermarket. It has beauty salons, medical services, clothes shops and the whole range of craft and housewares. Dempsey restaurants and Holland village are a stones throw away. Finally we love the friendly, unpretentious yet courteous and efficient atmosphere of the hotel .

Hotel with good facilities but a bit isolated

Posted Aug 2, 2014
Pros: Ensite facilities, breakfast and the daily package option.
Cons: A better explanation of services provided and readily available.
Location: There is a Mall directly behind the hotel with a good cross section of stores. Otherwise location was not to my taste or liking particularly.
I made the booking online and was quite happy with the hotel and the facilities offered. Location was not what I would have chosen (for the price) if I had known Singapore better. It will influence my next visit and hotel choice. Check-in was very late one Friday night, took a long time and misinformation was provided by a staff member. The room was a good size with the ability to make tea and coffee (complimentary biscuits would have been a nice gesture and still expected in UK, NZ and Australia which seem to be the countries in which this service happily continues to be provided) and also had a nice, fresh bathroom. Housekeeping staff on Level 18 were conscientious but not quite as thorough as needed (some daily complimentary items were not replaced). The daily package option was good value as it included breakfast and a 2 hour Happy Hour but its benefit was not explained well by hotel staff. Breakfast was a huge selection of foods, covering a number of countries/cultures - enough to satisfy any palate and appetite.

We had a great time enjoying the free water, pool, sauna and the hot jacuzzi! We could not ask for more!

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.
