“Great hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

This hotel epitomises hospitality and customer service. I am a client for life at this property. Their level of service is excellent. The staff recognise you and ask you how you are each day. They are so friendly and attentive.

Room Tip: Keep the a/c fan speed on low and at about 24c and you'll have a very comfortable sleep!

Traders is in a good location, walking distance to most things needed if you are in the city for business. Rooms were small, and the bed extremely hard. Staff were wonderful and very helpful - would recommend for business trips but not for holidays.

We have a great stay, hotel staff is very friendly and helpful. Love the eggs benedict for breakfast, please make sure that you have enough meat in the morning sometimes we have to wait for kitchen to refill again. Please can you make sure for better hairdryers as we all don't want to travel with hairdryers. Love the buggy that take you to the towers. Hop on and off bus is also a sort distance from hotel. Love the park. Upgrading your room so that you can get the cocktails and drinks in the evening is a must.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2014

This review has been due for some time now. I stayed in Traders in early April 2014, for 4 nights, for a convention.
The rooms were clean and very nice. However, it was very expensive, and for such a high price, the rooms were very small!!. No doubt the high price was due to the location of the hotel being in the city centre. View from the room was also spectacular, directly facing KLCC, which is beautiful at night and also during the day time.
Ate at the hotel restaurant for the buffet breakfast one of the days, and the selection was wide. Good value and good food.
Aside from that, we also ordered room service for 3 nights, and the food was excellently prepared! The food was great. However, they did forget my roomie's order on one occasion. Service was also slow, had to wait at least 30 minutes before your order arrived.
On another night, we had fine dining in Gobo Upstairs, and once again, the food was perfect! Service was really good too.
Overall, a really nice place to stay in, with really good food.
However, it is really expensive (but I was on a company trip) and for the price, the rooms are really small. Not suitable if you want to spend the whole day in the hotel.

Room Tip: I assume all rooms are nice, as it is a 5 star hotel

It was fine generally and we weren't in the hotel much so it didn't matter but next time i think I'd pay the extra and try to stay at the Mandarin Oriental - simply because i could see its pool from our room and it looked amazing. The room was fine but a bit tired. We didn't eat in the hotel so can't comment on that. The bar upstairs around the pool is pretty dreadful...albeit packed (I guess i'm not the target audience).

This hotel is in a great location with fantastic views of the Petronas Towers. I would recommend upgrading to a Traders Club room. You get use of the Club lounge on the 32nd floor overlooking the towers, afternoon tea, evening cocktails and breakfast thrown in for only around £20 extra per person.

The staff were friendly and helpful. The concierge were even able to get us tickets for Petronas towers when the website was sold out.

A visit to the Skybar is a must at night. Let the staff know you are a guest in the hotel and you will get priority for a window seat. Only negative was food in the bar. They were doing Mexican food the night we were there and I am not sure where the chef got his receipes from but the food certainly didn't resemble or taste like anything you would be served in Mexico!!

Excellent hotel and staff. Went there with my wife and one year old baby girl and all of us were happy. The staff were very warm and helpful. It felt good to stay there and would definitely come back again.
