We had the "Towers view" room, and you can not imagine how close you seem to be to the towers themselves. The view is just amazing and worth the extra money as you only normally visit once!

We had the "Towers view" room, and you can not imagine how close you seem to be to the towers themselves. The view is just amazing and worth the extra money as you only normally visit once! The hotel itself is beautifully decorated, the staff are just amazing and friendly and always willing to help and provide advice. The food is varied and great quality, and if you dine in in the evening at all - the burger is a must (I know its a burger, but it is a good one)! They provide a complimentory shuttle to the towers if required (just along the edge of the park, not far, but appreciated due to the humidity and heat). I cannot fault this hotel, staff, location or anything. Once of the best hotels I have stayed in worldwide. Thank you! Read less

On the recommendation of friends, my partner and I chose to stay at Traders in their Club Twin Towers room for our 3 nights in Kuala Lumpur. After first arriving at the hotel the check in procedure at the lounge was quick and efficient, and all staff throughout our stay were incredibly helpful. With the upgrade we utilised having breakfast in the lounge each day, and used it as a space to relax whilst waiting out the (frequent) rainstorms during our stay. The evening canapes and happy hour also meant we were able to enjoy some snacks and drinks before heading out for the evening. The view from our room was one of the most incredible of our holiday, being able to see the Petronas Towers lit up at night from the comfort of your own bed was spectacular, not forgetting of course that the beds themselves are huge and the bathrooms are fully kitted out. Location-wise, it’s incredibly easy to explore the city, and the concierge are able to provide complementary umbrellas to take out in case the weather does turn. If you can upgrade – do! Read less

This is a fabulous hotel. The hotel itself is modern and clean and the staff are very friendly and the concierge so helpful (we had a little issue with our travel rep and the concierge went over and above to sort it) The facilities of the hotel are of the high standard you would expect. Breakfast is buffet style and choice after choice after choice... The hotel is situated in the KLCC park and is directly across from the Petronas Towers. You can walk there in five minutes through the park. Make sure you book a Petronas Towers view room. There is nothing better than just sitting after a day out and about and watching the sunset and ligts change over the tower, or watching the park during the day and looking at the stunning view, including the fountains. The Skybar is a must for cocktails and we recommend the "bucket" of food whilst you watch dusk over the towers and the fountain show. There is also a lovely little cafe on the ground floor on the edge of the park. It's outside but under cover, so perfect in all weathers and serves sandwiches, salads , drinks etc. The location is good, as well as being near the towers (and therefore the Suria shopping mall and the park) there is a metro station (although the signs are a bit confusing - so be aware!), so you can get to other places. You can also walk into the other parts of the city failrly easily within 15 to 20 minutes Read less

We went for a vacation in KL and checked-in here. We were given the best room with the best view of the Petronas Twin Tower! Everything was clean! I have no issues at all. Thank you Traders Hotel you made our KL stay very memorable.
