Came back to Traders and relaxed in the good pool as well as the club lounge. Came out refreshed. Please refer to my prior recommendations about Traders Hotel. Even other travellers were immediately impressed by the quality of the food, the high level of great and genuine service and the convenience of the location to klcc. The views of the Petronus Towers were , as always, impressive from Traders. They have vowed to use Traders as a base again on their next visit to Kuala Lumpur. They were so impressed with Traders they wanted to cancel or modify their plane departure timing and stay abit longer. Read less

The view is why you stay at the traders, and the view of KLCC park and the Petronas is well worth the surcharge, The rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained. WiFi was solid as well Staff were helpful and courteous, and the concierge I found excellent. The security staff were fast and courteous, and i never had any time to clear. I had… Read more
The view is why you stay at the traders, and the view of KLCC park and the Petronas is well worth the surcharge, The rooms are spacious, clean and well maintained. WiFi was solid as well Staff were helpful and courteous, and the concierge I found excellent. The security staff were fast and courteous, and i never had any time to clear. I had club lounge access- this was a little disappointing and in my opinion not worth the supplement. The breakfast orders were small portions, and the drinks stock poor. I went in one evening at about 730PM to be told i couldn't get a beer!! Really poor stuff there. The skybar/pool is nice but unbearably warm. Didn't really feel comfortable in there. My main issue is with the advert for ladies night in the skybar. It looks like a stripclub and i found this an absolute disgrace. In a modern world, this is just unacceptable to have an advert like this and all it does is encourage sexual harassment. Really not good enough for a Shangri-La group property. I couldn't recommend to any friend I did like the traders, but there is still plenty of room to improve. However, the advert really would make me think about staying again. Read less

I stayed here with my family and with friends also staying for an international conference. This was the ideal hotel for many reasons - attached to the convention centre, close to shopping malls either connected underground or by taking a free buggy ride, good club facilities at breakfast and during the day, lovely lap-pool alongside the bar with views of the Petronas Towers, close to Towers and aquarium, well appointed rooms. Only minor suggestion was for more spotlights or LED lights at certain parts of the room such as the useful dressing area. Read less

We booked a room with frontal view to the Petronas Towers and what a sight it was! The full glass wall facing the towers and all the area around them was to die for! Plus, they were able to accomodate us on the 12 or 14th floor ( can't remember exactly) reserved for smokers, which we greatly appreciated. The copious breakfast with plenty of fresh,… Read more

Plus, they were able to accomodate us on the 12 or 14th floor ( can't remember exactly) reserved for smokers, which we greatly appreciated. The copious breakfast with plenty of fresh, local produce was also memorable. A special mention to the restaurant atop the hotel, which offers magnificent views especially at night, with the towers gradually switching off at midnight. Like in all good hotels of South East Asia, the service was simply perfect. Read less
