Visited 4 nights begin Feb on route to Australia during virus problem. The hotel was very good with precautions - taking temperature readings on entry to hotel, restaurant and bar pool. All restaurant staff wore masks and gloves. Felt reassured as much as could be. We had a fabulous view of the Petronas Towers overlooking the park - well worth asking for Tower view rooms. The bedroom was clean and spacious - huge bed. We had a good breakfast with large range of choice. We ate out evenings so can’t judge meals. The pool on top floor was enclosed and usually had the windows open - great when a breeze but quite hot otherwise as fans were not always on. Nice view especially at night. The location next to the park is also a great plus. You have a feeling of space and there are some nice spots in the shade just to sit and relax. There is even a fountain and light show. The children’s play area is one of the biggest I have seen. The hotel also has a buggy service to take you around the park to the large shopping centre and restaurants below the Towers - nice when you are just a little tired. Read less

We stayed here for a two night stop over to see the sight of KL. Great locaiton and weould definatly recomend paying the extra for a towers view room. Good breakfast but busy, restauraant food good but lacking atmosphere, good wine selection. As all hotels you pay a little extra for the convenience. Good size rooms, very cean and good location.

Once again we chose Traders Hotel for our stay in Kuala Lumpur and, as usual, we thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff are so lovely, especially Theresa Goh, the Director of Communications at the hotel: she’s a star, so helpful and professional, a great asset for any hotel group. Thank you! The hotel is also very health conscious at the moment with antiseptic gel provided everywhere, free body temperature checks and fantastic room cleaning. The gym has everything one needs and fantastic views too. We truly enjoyed using the running track in KLCC park as well, which is right in front of the hotel: step out and you are in the park! Couldn’t get any closer! Of course the rooftop pool and open air Sky Bar are very famous features of this hotel too. The breakfast buffet is incredibly well stocked and the staff are amazing. We shall be back again and again. Thank you. Read less

The hotel was very quiet because of the coronavirus outbreak but the service offered was excellent. The staff were courteous and went out of there way to be helpful i.e. given breakfast in a bag for an early flight out of Kuala Lumpur. The Skybar is also very atmospheric. If I returned to Kuala Lumpur, I would stay here again.

We stayed here in our way back from Vietnam and it was a great way to end the holiday. We couldn’t get tickets for the Petronas but in fact we got a much better view from the hotel! The roof terrace and pool is the best place for sunset drinks. The location is great, right in the middle of town, with excellent access to the malls and restaurants.… Read more

Everything was whst you expect from a hotel of this level- can’t fault it. Read less
