Stayed at this hotel just one night on route back to the Uk. Only hotel in KL with full frontal views of the Petronas Towers & offers dramatic city skyline views. 33rd floor open air roof top Sky Bar, a little odd that the swimming pool was squashed in the middle of it & some of the seating area around the bar, although the under cover, had got a little wet following a very heavy downpour. That said the views were awesome. Walking distance to the shopping mall & Petronas Towers complex either through a park or covered walkway that connects the conference centre facilities. The shopping mall holds mainly designer shops so don’t expect to find bargains here. Plenty of places to eat & drink if you want an alternative to eating at the hotel. Easy access to the Petronas Towers from the hotel, if you are on a tight time schedule may be worth pre booking the tickets to ensure you get a good time slot. Tickets give you access to the Sky Bridge & then on up to the top floor. Definitely worth a visit. Traffic is a bit of a nightmare in KL, on the afternoon we were due to leave our taxi driver called to say he would collect us earlier as there was a heavy traffic. As it happens we left the hotel in a terrific thunder & lightning storm & was held up by 2 accidents on the motorway. Thankfully we just got to the airport on time. Read less

A two week stay at Traders Hotel in KL was (again) very hard to fault. The location is perfect, close to the KLCC park and all the shopping that one could possibly want. For those ‘of an age’ or just plain lazy like me; there is a shuttle buggy that runs from the side door of the hotel to KLCC shopping centre from 0800 til late. The staff at this… Read more
A two week stay at Traders Hotel in KL was (again) very hard to fault. The location is perfect, close to the KLCC park and all the shopping that one could possibly want. For those ‘of an age’ or just plain lazy like me; there is a shuttle buggy that runs from the side door of the hotel to KLCC shopping centre from 0800 til late. The staff at this hotel are polite and efficient and certainly not overbearing. The front desk staff were all well informed and able to provide cogent information on the location of attractions and services around the hotel. The rooms are well equipped and, if I had to pick a fault, I would say the room lighting was less than perfect. A little dim for my personal preference, especially when working in the room. There is a standard range of TV attractions. Gobo Restaurant on the 5th floor has something for everyone with one of the better buffet breakfast spreads I have seen. The Sky bar on 33 is a great way to enjoy the spectacular views of the city. I will be back. Read less

I stayed a total of 3 nights. Bed and pillows were comfy, room was clean. Although location is not as good as staying at Bukit bintang area, this hotel is directly connected to KLCC. Easy to get grab. Breakfast spread is good and available from 6am to 10am in the morning.

Thought all along that this facility was part and parcel of the hotel's service. This hidden cost therefore marred an otherwise enjoyable experience. Read less

Really nice place for afternoon drinks, easy to get to and fabulous views from the Pool Area. Highly recommended when you have the time, especially in the evening. Little pricey for the drinks, but well worth it....., don’t pass this place up. Check our the photo.......,
