                    Excellent Service. Very friendly staff. I stayed during my birthday and the hotel management sent a card and cake to the room! Large room, large bathroom, excellent fitness center. Will surely come back.

                    Cleaning the rooms started on one side of the hotel and ended on my side, every day. The room was never cleaned before 3pm, which was a bit annoying.

                    Friendly staff room service (meals) swimming pool ,easy acess to komtar, efficent lobby staff.

                    we found everything satisfactory

                    The hotel provided a free shuttle bus service to and from the hotel and it's sister hotels in Batu Ferringhi. This made it possible to explore both Georgetown and the beach-side resorts and not have to worry about paying for transport. Great service!! Furthermore, the hotel is situated right next to the main bus terminal, KOMTAR. So it was very convenient to catch a bus to and from the airport and to the main shopping areas. In addition to this, the KOMTAR building is also a shopping mall and there is another mall, Prangin Mall next door, which made it very easy to get late night snacks and meals during the day.

                    The only thing I have to complain about is that there was no wi-fi in the rooms. There was free wired internet, but I would have preferred wireless.

                    good hotel in a good location near all main attractions in georgetown

                    9.6

                    Easy to get to (by car) and at the edge of the old Georgetown area. Free parking. Good, but relatively expensive, breakfast and restaurant. Free bus to Batu Ferringhi resorts in hotel chain and use of their facilities.

                    The hotel billed my Visa card for the full amount 14 days before I arrived! This does not appear to comply with Booking .com policy.

                    Everything was as to be expected. The free bus to the beach and the usage of the facility at the Golden Sands made for a good day trip.

                    Room was a little on small size but this Traders not a Shangri La so only to be expected.

                    Eating and fellowshipping with friends that went together. Listening to music at the lounge.

                    Buffet food quality at cafe should improve. Counter staff not so smiling.

                    The hotel itself was beautiful and our room was just as we would want it. I thought the staff were gracious, polite, friendly and helpful which we sometimes don't get in hotels similar to Traders. I would recommend it to friends and would return there again.

                    The only thing was the television. I was hoping there would at least be BBC World Entertainment and it would be a contemporary flat screen tv.

                    Staff at the check-in counter was very friendly. Amenities in the room was excellent.

                    Didn't quite fancy the breakfast. Probably some upgrades on the selection of TV channels (add more varieties) & a change to LCD/LED

                    The staff at the front desk and in the Club on the 16th floor were consistently pleasant and helpful -- even during the earthquake on Wednesday morning.

                    Not that you can do much about this but the location is not within walking distance of anything especially interesting in Georgetown.

                    Loved the rooms and the pool area which usually had a cool breeze.The Sauna and, steam room and massage was great.Staff was very helpful and courteous. Entertainment at night was very good and so was the seafood buffet on the Friday(?) night

                    Breakfast was too expensive though and the scales in the bathroom were useless

                    The cleanliness of the room.

                    Should have water pipe (Bidget) near the toilet bowl. With your price most have buffet breakfast offered but not Trader.......I Do not understand why
