Here is the "blip":

I had self planned a trip to KL, Ko Samui and Singapore. Quite complicated with transfers and internal flights etc. It did not start well when we arrived at KUL and the hotel organised transfer did not show...The hotel representative explained there was an error and we should speak to concierge on arrival at Traders. OK, but the background is that we have been to KL before and stayed at the Mandarin Oriental. KL is an hour from the airport and the cab drivers are CRAZY. This is why I booked an over the odds hotel car over getting a cab. Seatbelts did not work, grubby cab....awful. The rep did not tell us it would be a cab, he did say it was the same price as a hotel car. After the London flight...posh class..an hour to the hotel, we felt we had no choice as presumably an hour to wait for the hotel car.

That is the bad bit and actually the only bad bit. Reception is not the big impressive affair of some of the hotel's competitors, but the gentleman, Chad dealt with the error very well (be it the cabbie was stood next to us waiting to be paid).... Awkward. He rang us to follow up too. Much appreciated.

We booked the Petronas Towers suite. So glad we did. The best view in KL. Very comfy bed, excellent shower and the hot water heater was ideal for the selection of tea and coffee.

The living area is separate and would be entirely so if there was a door. I say this as if one is an earlier riser than the other, the light will come in. Fab toiletries (L'Occitane)

The Traders Lounge is worth the upgrade for a very nice breakfast offering . The cocktail offering is in my view basic, a few spirits, beer and wine and I do not understand decanted Coke.... Flat. Perhaps to prevent removal of cans? The snacks on offer are very substantial and delicious....could easily be a meal. Good variety over our stay and generous. Staff delightful and happy to give you tips on your day/ book restaurants.

The buggy to the Petronas shopping area was very handy.

Sky Bar.... So much fun....great cocktails at Happy Hour ( loving the fig sour) and good casual food. If you are a hotel guest I notice they will do their best to secure a great table. ... Useful as this is the place to go (had not realised that!) What a view...

The transfer back in the hotel Merc... A breeze. Would book here over Mandarin. Great value, laid back .... For us KL is a stopover and this hotel meets the sleepy, city, layover brief... With that view....

Don't missed it !

One of my best hotel. Great room and huge bathroom, with very kind staff.
Location is amazing : in front of Petronas Tower, on the other side of KLCC park and at 10 minutes by foot to central market area.
Don't miss the INCREDIBLE view from skybar and swiming pool on Towers. Probably the best spot for pictures, by day or night.

Great one

Good Hotel in great location easy walk to Petronas Towers , the park and malls. The rooms were clean and spacious and the skybar had a bonus view. . They catered for gf breakfasts. We thought the breakfast room itself could do with updating but apart from that a great stay. Would recommend a stay here as it is so central. Staff were very busy but did acknowledge us with smiles. Thank you.
