Traders is a very nice hotel. The location is good for a stop over and taxis are cheap if you want to go and see anything. It is definitely worth a visit to the Grand Mosque which is stunning. I would suggest getting a Traders Club Room (as these were lovely and spacious), plus you get the free cocktail hour which is great value. We found there is enough food there to have as dinner and the free drinks are definitely value for money.
There is a nice beachfront (fake beach) with sun loungers and tables etc at this hotel. At night you can have a shisha pipe here which was a good experience. Very relaxing all round. We found the food in the restaurant to be a bit over priced for what it was.
Only small issue we had was that on checkout we had recorded the items we used from the minibar which we gave to the receptionist. We paid for this on checkout. However then several days later we had an email saying that one minibar item had not been paid for. We wrote back enquiring about this and they indicated it was because the receptionist had not entered the one item (even though it was recorded by us). I asked for further clarification and have not heard back, so hopefully this has just been accepted as an error (in which case no problem at all).
Overall staff were very helpful and friendly. In particular we appreciated having a late check out (due to flying out late the next day) and quite an early check in too which was really helpful for us. It seems the hotel will be flexible with check in and out times provided they have the capacity which I always think is extremely helpful when you have early and late flights etc.
We would stay here again.
