Hotel is well connected by a covered (air-conditioned) walkway from the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre to Pavilion Shopping Mall. Secured parking facility is available at the hotel basement. Free parking for the guests. Friendly and helpful hotel staff. Happy with the guest room and bathroom in general. Would definitely return again!

Rooms / Showers / Housekeeping all great - beds excellent ... check in was good but hotel was busy with show and guests and they seemed to be feeling the strain

Food used from mini bar was not replaced the whole week - went to breakfast at 06.10 had to wait 10 mins for someone to show up when there was no one in - Sky Bar is normally excellent even when hosting events - we had one good night and two bad - service slow and poor - ordered drinks after 10 mins said coming - 10 mins later beer run out - same with food choices - another night told to sit in non reserved places as events then told by another not to sit there and moved - then moved again - then told we could not sit there despite staff putting us there - moved to smoking area in the end which was not great with someone recovering from serious illness that is often caused by smoking - seemed general lack of interest ...lift wait ran to 20-30 mins some nights ...just fell short of all previous visits

Great Location, Lovely view

After a 13 hour flight and what felt like a 13 hour queue at immigration, we were so happy when we arrived at the Traders hotel.

We had been given a complementary upgrade to the Petronas Towers view room (2809) and my wife was presented with a rose and chocolate as it was our anniversary, which was a lovely gesture.

The view from the room, was simply amazing. We arrived just before 8.30pm and along with the view of the towers, we could see the Suria KLCC shopping complex and the symphony water fountains.

The service was great and the buggy service that the hotel offers to Suria KLCC was invaluable in the heat and humidity.

Breakfast was varied and wonderful

Would highly recommend the hotel.

Lovely view of Petronas tower and great service!

I had a great stay at Traders Hotel. The view from my room is lovely! not to mention the awesome view from the members' lounge too.

All the staff are very friendly and welcoming. It is only 5 min walk to KLCC, or you can also choose to take the hotel shuttle.

The room service is good too! The security is something i appreciates too.

Best view of Petronas Towers

We booked Traders for 4 nights and were told by our travel agent that this afforded us the 'Traders Club Benefit'. Our 'Club' room had jaw dropping views of the Petronas Towers and being 'Club' guests allowed us some snacks in the evening between 5-7. We didnt appreciate it also included complimentary alcoholic drinks inc beers, wines and spirits. I have since read other reviews who commented that supplies weren't always readily available but we didnt experience this; staff even prompted us when the complimentary drinks were about to end and brought us one last drink prior! Staff were excellent: friendly, courteous and very keen to meet our every need. Food was very nice and breakfast in 'Traders Lounge' was relaxed but more than adequate. The Sky Bar was very nice both during the day to relax and swim and at night for an after dinner drink with amazing views of the Petronas Towers.

We had the buffet at Gobo Chit Chat which had an excellent selection of food and would also recommend Fuego restaurant which is only a short taxi ride away. There is a little shuttle car that goes to the Petronas Towers regularly but it is only a short walk (10 mins normal pace) and you can walk there in an enclosed air conditioned walkway. Would thoroughly recommend Traders Hotel Club room!
