How to Get There

Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur City Centre
Kuala Lumpur, 50088 Malaysia



This is a fine hotel and I've thoroughly enjoyed the many occasions I've stayed but for me, it's about the small things. Now this may be trivial to most but I consider small things important. I booked breakfast with my room which I always do but unfortunately, on Saturday my golf Tee time got bumped to 730 AM which makes the 630 AM Breakfast time impossible for me to make. I asked for a simple net compensation MYR 75 for room service breakfast vs the 50 RM I have already paid for the Breakfast Buffet and I was told no. So long story short Shangri-La hotels just lost a long-time customer

Great Hotel

We originally planned to stay here for three nights but ended up staying for five! The hotel staff were excellent and always very welcoming. The rooms were extremely spacious and we opted to pay the extra for a view of the Patrons Towers and weren’t disappointed! The club lounge was excellent and had a large variety of snacks and drinks would definitely stay here again if back in KL.

Great location, nearly perfect facilities, wonderful staff

I stayed for 7 nights for a work event at the KLCC, which is connected. I had a Club Room, which provided access to the lounge, where we could eat breakfast, have a few drinks, meet for work, etc. The room overlooked the park and Patronis Towers that was very well equipped, nearly perfect. The only negatives were small: the hair dryer was connected to a drawer int he living room, not the bathroom; the artwork was hideous, and the water temperature kept fluctuating when showering.
Aside from those relatively minor things, the hotel was quiet and comfortable, bed was amazing, pillows were perfect: two soft; two harder; and staff was wonderful. Nothing was too hard, and they were quick to accommodate. Checkout is normally 12, but they easily extended mine to 2pm. Much appreciated.
