We arrived at Traders during the madness of Chinese New Years eve to a warm welcome. All of the staff were friendly. courteous and couldn't do enough for you. This seems to be the standard anywhere in Singapore, of not just the hotels but shop, travel and amenity staff as well, which is part of the pleasure of travelling here.
Check In was very efficient, but there was a note of disbelief that we would not want to pay for an upgrade to our room, so we could use the Club Lounge. I'm still not convinced that upgrading was necessary, as our room was comfortable, clean, well equipped and quiet. We were situated on one of the lower floors, at the back of the hotel, with a view over the swimming pool and were more than happy with the standard for the price we had paid.
Singapore isn't the cheapest of cities, but the prices in Rumpoles Bar on level 2 seemed quite excessive, so we only went the one time. The price for a meal in Ah Hoi's Kitchen, (one of the in-house eateries), by comparison were very good with excellent food.
Traders is very well situated with a wide variety of facilities either attached or in near vicinity. You can walk through to Tanglin Mall, which although smaller than most of orchard road offered a supermarket and chemist, as well as several small but cheap cafes.
For those willing to get out on foot, Traders is a good base to start from and only 10 mins walk from the underground.
It is well worth drawing on the staff's local knowledge as they were extremely well informed, as well as enthusiastic. Requests for restaurant recommendations as well as non tourist price jewellery and electronics stores were delivered with aplomb, adding further enjoyment to our stay.
A relaxing dip in the pool here is a must. It's very relaxing in their spacious outdoor pool area and very clean and tidy.
Overall I would highly rate the facilities and staff of Traders and was happy with the standard class but still need convincing that upgrading to Club Lounge is worth the cost.
