“Good location and view”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

My fiancé and I stayed here four nights in a twin towers view room. Everything was just ok... The worst part was because we were on the 30th floor I was kept awake late at night because of the sky bar above.. We have traders club access which was nice. It's in a great location for shopping. Would probably stay somewhere else next time. But for first time the view truly is amazing just be weary if staying in the higher levels close to the sky bar because as a light sleeper I found it hard to sleep.

Stayed February 2013, traveled as a couple

Our experience at the Traders was absolutely amazing!Stayed here for 5 nights during Christmas 2012 at the beginning of a 1 month holiday around Asia.

Upon check in we were offered an upgrade to a traders suite which included daily breakfast and access to the traders lounge. It was such a good deal, well worth it! This is by far a fantastic 5 stay hotel!! The rooms are spacious, very clean and much attention to detail is taken! The view of the towers at night is breathtaking, we were like 'wow'. The staff are amazing, and do anything you ask!!!

Everything you need is at this hotel. Free wifi throughout the hotel is great, being a business hotel there were no issues with this at all.

The hotel has a skybar which is where the pool is located - this is really a must one night as the view of the twin towers is brilliant.

Location wise this is no.1! There is a buggy service which takes you to the KLCC shopping mall, even though it's only about a 2 min walk.

KLCC station is right underneath, you can go everywhere!! There is also a walkway which you take straight to Bukit Bingtang - it takes about 10 mins!!

Everything you want is here - luxury, relaxation, partying, shopping, eating and more!

Room Tip: Upgrade to the twin tower view suite :) well worth it!

Where do we start. Everything was so slick, from the check in to the check out. We hadn't booked a room with a view of the Petronis Towers but got one. The staff are so efficient. My husband has stayed in many business hotels over the years and he said that this hotel beat them all. It is in a great location close to the Convention Centre, beautiful gardens/park, shopping area and the sky train. There is also a free buggy service. We didn't eat at the hotel but the food looked great and was certainly popular. The only negative was a member of staff by the restaurant reservations desk. While we were waiting for our relatives for half an hour in the lobby he seemed to think that the only job he had to do was to oggle at every western woman. Very creepy and very unprofessional.
Apart from that we wouldn't hesitate to stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: We were in room 2425 - a deluxe garden view room but had a great side view of the towers

For us this was a short luxury stay at the end of a long trip and it really perfectly capped-off the whole of our holiday. Having researched TripAdvisor before booking, we specifically booked a room in their "Traders Club Twin Towers View" section and whilst the room was delightful, roomy and well equipped, the view of the Twin Towers from the room at night was just sensational! The room also overlooked the neatly laid out lush green gardens, lake and fountains between the hotel and the huge KLCC shopping mall at the base of the Twin Towers.

The hotel offers all that you could need in a modern luxury hotel. There is a choice of restaurants on several levels. Having a Traders Club room also entitles you (free) to their very good Club Lounge breakfasts (with eggs cooked to order), their afternoon teas and their generous and most enjoyable evening cocktails.

There is a swimming pool on the same top floor as the Sky Bar. A swim in the pool was surprisingly refreshing as I suspect that the pool water is actually chilled, which was a 'first' for me! To one side of the pool there are lounge booths for relaxing in but note that these booths only have a half-window which allows you to take an uninterrupted photo of the Twin Towers opposite.

The staff were all most helpful and always smiling and my thanks to them for doing a great job!

The hotel runs a golf buggy service from the lobby to the KLCC shopping mall which is a nice convenience for a keen shopper (going) or a weary shopper (coming back).

Room Tip: Choose the "Traders Club Twin Towers View" rooms if you possibly can.

Traders' Hotel is a great place to rest and relax if you're shopping or attending an event at the KL Convention Centre. It's also really convenient if you're planning on using the Kelana Jaya LRT line as there's one in KLCC. Rooms are large and comfortable, with plenty of great amenities. WiFi and Internet LAN cables are also available, and the speeds are very decent.

Room Tip: Book early if you can and keep your eye out for the MATTA fair period. Usually they'll give you...

Location was average.A good 10 to 15 minute walk to shops,entertainment and food.The buggy service to KLCC helps.

Not used to check-in being on a higher floor.
"Lobby" had a desk for concierge service an another for promoting restaurant services.
Staff managing both were'nt too customer oriented.
Overall customer service was lacking.A ver "cold" hotel in that regard.

A must visit is the Sky Bar especially in the evenings for an impeccable view of the Twin Towers

Room Tip: Choose one with a view of the Petronas Towers
