This is a GREAT place to stay in KL! It is right next to the park and has a great view of the Petronas towers. There are many things within walking distance. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent! SkyBar was fun! I could go on and on!

On arrival at check-in, after a long flight from Heathrow, I knew I had chosen the right hotel in KL. Our room requests had been observed and more importantly our room was immediately available, far before conventional booking in time. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The breakfast choice was good with Malaysian, Chinese and Western dishes. The location is good, on KLCC park, overlooking the Petronas towers. A metro station is about 10mins walk away and can be accessed via underground passageways. The staff are really helpful and obliging. On the first day l was urged to install Grab on my mobile to use the cheap taxi service. The staff will also help you with sightseeing and in printing your onward boarding pass. On the last day we had an early flight, so we ordered a packed breakfast; it was excellent and filling. Overall an outstanding hotel and worth the price.  Read less

We only stayed for 1 night, breaking up our journey from Perth, Australia to Bangkok. It was a great stay, we had a twin tower view room with club access. Plenty of drinks and food to choose from and the view of the twin towers lit up at night was amazing. The concierge at the entrance of the hotel made sure our luggage were taken care of and directed us to check in via the lift. Check in was smooth and fast and with very efficient staff. Up to the room, followed shortly by our bags. Quick change and up to the pool, amazing views yet again. Club access as mentioned before with a wide array of choice, breakfast in the morning was greatly anticipated as my partner had stayed here before, I certainly wasn’t disappointed. WOW, what a choice, everything you could possibly wish for was available. Thank you Traders for a wonderful, but short stay and experience, we will be back. Read less
