“luxurious suites”
Reviewed 23 February 2013

We stayed there one night in the premiere suite - it was great and I would recommend it to anybody. But the other types of rooms , I think , were good too. Beautiful interior, helpful staff, everything was on the very high level of service. The bathroom was excellent. the pillows and bed - very good. Mostly the hotel was occupied by business-trip voyagers but it could be kindly recommend for tourists.

My wife and I spent our first night in Yangon, Myanmar at the Traders Hotel. What a pleasant surprise for us. After driving through dark, noisy and exhaust filled streets we walked into another world. From the reception we received by staff to the big comfortable room we were impressed. Actually we were a bit embarrassed about our good fortune as we were enjoying something that the people outside could only dream of. My wife loved the large bathtub.
In the morning we were treated to perhaps the best breakfast buffet we have ever had, certainly in Southeast Asia. After breakfast we did a walkabout outside the hotel and were exposed to reality in Myanmar. However, the people were all friendly and seemingly happy.
Our only regret was we had a plane to catch so had to check-out.

Room Tip: We had a club room which was great. The view isn't worth paying extra for.

Traders Hotel was awesome. Location is great, the staff were all fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. All Staff were happy to have a chat, my fiance and his family were born in Burma and had not been back since they left 42 years ago so it was great to have that in common. We learnt a lot about the best shopping places etc to go. Internet was quick and able to be picked up all over the hotel (some hotels only have access in the lobby). The restaurant was excellent with either the buffet or a la carte. The gym was great and the massages were excellent. The pool is good but not a lot of shade. Room service staff too great. We will definately be staying at Traders again. Everybody was very polite and always had a smile. Nothing was too much trouble. The cost was quite high but I would definately recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: The rooms with windows overlooking the front of the hotel and the street are the best as you can loo...

I stayed at Traders Hotel for three days in February 2013. My last trip there was a year and a half ago. Although the hotel is currently undergoing renovation and the building of an extension the work was limited to the daytime and for the most part was carried out unobtrusively. The Club Room had been upgraded since my last visit and are now nicely decorated. The Club Lounge is also under renovation so for an interim period the lounge is now on level 3 of the hotel. Although the room has no windows the service is excellent and the quality of snacks on offer is also very good. Traders Cafe had again been revamped and both the breakfast and dinner buffet spreads were much improved since my last visit. The hotel takes the major credit cards (not all hotels do yet) and has an excellent interney system. All in all I'd certainly recommend this hotel for both business and holiday trips.

Room Tip: The Club Rooms are worth the extra daily cost.

I like Traders. It is in a great location, the staff are some of the best you will find anywhere. They are charming, attentive and nothing is too much trouble. The front desk team were wonderful. Excellent buffet breakfast. I stayed here on a couple of occasions in the last month. One night I ate dinner at their buffet which was terriffic and fantastic value at $24. However, a couple of weeks later I ate there again and it wasn't nearly as good.

Internet access is excellent. I stayed in a club room at one point which I thought was poor value. When I booked I was told the only rooms available were club rooms, but when I checked in the club rooms were identical. Furthermore, the club floors were closed for renovation and the facilities had been give a temporary home on another floor. The windowless space was very uninviting and the quality of nibbles at happy hour were dismal. Breakfast was not as good as the buffet in the main part of the hotel. In fact, I had meetings and preferred to get together in the coffeee shop or main reception space, rather than the freezing club lounge.

Room Tip: Try for a high floor with a north-facing room with views of the Shwedagon Pagoda.

Thank you for taking time to share your feedback after your stay experience at our hotel. I am disappointed that you found our food quality not up to standard and I wish to apologize for this. We strive to always offer the freshest product we can find in Yangon and we will certainly make some improvements.

Our prices are specifically set to provide good value for money, but should not impact the experience in any way. Vegaholic, our team will make some changes which we hope you will notice on your next trip.

Midnight arrival and check in, no problem. Consistently good food and drinks. Good location for 4 day stay with side trips to Pathein and elsewhere.
Room refurbishment and construction of new buildings next door mean some noises during the day.
The pool was just wonderful, though better if it had some trees around it to screen out neighbouring buildings.
Refurbished rooms bear the Shangri-La and Traders Hallmark.
This building was purpose built by the Kuok Group and not acquired.

Room Tip: Ask to be away from refurbishment and construction site. Above 15 floor has views?

We stayed 2 evenings. The room is clean, quiet, and the bed is comfortable. The only complaint we have is the cafe: (1) we saw a waiter touched and handled the fruits with his bare hands. That is very unhygienic, (2) the placemat has stains. They need to clean the placemats. (3) the soup for the Burmese noodles was lukewarm, rather than hot, (4) the most disturbing are the flies. They need to get an electrical light which attract the flies to kill them. It will solve the problem.

Many thanks for your comments and I am disappointed that your dining experience was affected by some of our team not following our HACCP standard procedures. These observations are taken very seriously and we have corrected this. 5Flower , we do take a range of precautions to deal with the insects , however Yangon is experiencing a heat wave with little wind which makes it much harder to control, but be assured we have a number of steps we follow. Should I be able to be of any further assistance please email me on phillip.couvaras@tradershotels.com
