An excellent stay and good service . This place has good food and the Sky Bar is pretty cool. Music is 80 to 90s and the best part is its not too loud for a past by 20s date guy like me. Found out its part of the Shangrila chain. so all the more it explains the high standard

We have stayed in Trader Hotel Kuala Lumpur 3 times now. We choose the room that overlooks the Petronas Twin Towers. The view is absolutely awesome. You can sit there all night long and look at the view and there's also a large clock on the of the buildings which is good to be able to look at through the night to see the time. The rooms are quite good and the pillows are so comfortable that I photoed the labels in an effort to find some of them for myself. The room rate is also reasonable, considering the view. The have a good size breakfast buffet. Well worth the experience and a view you'll always see in advertising and never forget. Read less

My 86-year-old mother and I stayed at the Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur for my birthday, and we had a generally wonderful stay. The hotel communicated with me immediately upon receiving my booking, so informing them of my requests and the reason for our stay was easy. As such, when we arrived, our room had birthday balloons on the beds, sofa and chairs. The hotel was located in the city center, within the immediate vicinity of the iconic Petronas Towers and Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre. There was a golf cart courtesy of the hotel that brought guests to and from the Suria KLCC every 10 minutes. Thus, shopping malls, restaurants, supermarkets and the Petronas itself were just few minutes away. There was a coffee shop that likewise served sandwiches just outside the hotel. Transportation to the airport was easy because the concierge could immediately get cabs waiting by the hotel entrance. Check in and check out processes were quick. Our room was a deluxe twin, non-smoking (twin towers view) room with perfect views of the Petronas and KLCC Park. It was spotlessly clean, and with functioning air-conditioning system, wifi connection and hot showers. There was adequate space for movement for 2 adults. The hotel staff were generally courteous and could speak English. The gym was a bit spacious with just the right equipment for both aerobic and strength exercises. We tried the lunch and seafood dinner buffet in Gobo Chit Chat restaurant. The food was excellent (they had the best-tasting fish crackers!), staff service was exemplary, and price was reasonable. No need to go further for a night out because the hotel’s SkyBar offered cocktails and snacks while enjoying live music and scenic evening views of KL skyline. This hotel made my birthday really enjoyable. My mother and I highly recommend this hotel for travelers to Kuala Lumpur, either for business or leisure, who would want to have a really good but surprisingly reasonably-priced place to stay in this city.
