Didn't Want to Leave

Cannot say enough about this place - have stayed here the last couple of times I've been through KL, and am yet to be disappointed. Rooms are amazing, facilities are great and the staff are wonderful. Location is perfect for those wanting to be close to the shops/restaurants - but its still secluded enough to feel like an oasis when you need it (especially up at the pool during the day). Awesome stuff.

Unexpected location and benefits

Looking at the location of the hotel on the web did not prepare us for such a great spot. It was only a 10 minutes walk to KLCC shopping mall and as well the hotel provided a large golf buggy for free shuttles to and from the mall. The mall is a great place to catch the train to Chinatown and other KL landmarks. We were invited to upgrade to the Club which was excellent value as breakfast was then included as well as cocktails and hot snacks between 5pm and 7pm. The hotel was a great pleasant surprise.

3rd stay, still great standard

Enjoyed our 3rd visit to Traders, great customer focused staff, nice rooms, fantastic showers (no water saving heads here), sky bar and huge buffet breakfast. We paid for breakfast separately, if you have large breakfasts worth the approx AUD20 as biggest selection I have seen. I ended up having a muffin and coffee from cafe out the front of hotel.

good corporate hotel

situated at the convention centre, Traders has convenient access to Suria KLCC, a large high end shopping mall at the base of the Petronas Towers. The view of the towers is stunning. Breakfast is plentiful with a wide variety to choose from. Overall, a good hotel.

Great Hotel

My wife and I have stayed at the Traders a few times now. Great place to stay as close to the attractions etc. The SkyBar is a good place to have a couple of drinks at night overlooking the fantastic Patronas Towers.

The best hotel in KL !

Traders is the best hotel I ever stay in KL. Strategic location in KLCC and the skybar is awesome ! Drink is a bit expensive but worth it. Swimming pool located in roof top with the full view of Petronas Twin Tower Oh ya, the sky bar is on root top too. Imagine, drinking with your friend with awesome night view of twin tower. The best experience ever

Great Birthday Celebration

Room was decorated with balloons and cake provided. The lollipops in flower shape and animal shape balloons given. So sweet. The only thing is no breakfast included in my room package. Price a bit high. The attached skybar is great! relaxing with KLCC night view.

Disappointed with this hotel

The shower was appaling with poor water pressure and temperature regulation. I spoke about this to the desk staff but no action was taken. This meant uncomfortable daily showers which were either too cold or too hot. Also, the room was located adjacent to the waste pipe outlets and this contributed to a noisy room when adjacent bathrooms were in use. The vestibule light did not work properly but I put up with it as my complaint fell on deaf ears. Overall, I was most disappointed with my stay of eight nights and will not be returning to this hotel. I previously stayed at the Grand Hyatt and will be returning to stay there on future visits to KL. The Traders appears to me to rely on a high turnover of room occupancy (catering I suspect to the business traveller) and lacks the charm and personal intimacy of a well run establishment.catering for the holiday and leisure market. The hotel lacks class.
