Traders is well positioned in KL, with easy access to the main sights, public transport and excellent shopping. Great presentation, generous rooms and high quality facilities and amenities. A good hotel for both business and leisure travelers.

Such a relaxing and enjoyable hotel in KL. Very good location for all the key sights and sounds. The view from Sky Bar is the best in the city. Do recommend the breakfast also. We were on holiday but I could imagine staying fo business comfortably as well.

Stayed here for 4 days and I must say that the location is quite amazing. You have a direct view of the Petronas towers with a sprawling garden in between. There is a hotel buggy service that takes you to the tower every 10 mins. This also connects to the KLCC subway station, thus providing good access to the city.

The rooms are modern and well equipped. Hotel does not have too many restaurants or services. In fact, the lobby is quite bare. But if you are looking for a comfy room, great location and good prices, then this is a good choice.

Room Tip: Make sure to choose the Twin towers view room.. it really is amazing!

Generally helpful staffs but some with attitude. Best view for Twin Towers and free buggy service to KLCC is a plus. Breakfast could be better for a 5 stars hotel. Room facilities need some proper maintenance. Sky Bar is unique experience with swimming pool during the day. Price not exactly cheap for KL stays but wanted to experience the Twin Tower view for once. Convention centre just next door and with lots of shopping and F&B in the vicinity.

Very, very good hotel in fantastic location, just opposite Petronas Twin Towers. We booked Towers view and we were not disappointed. The view was worth the extra pay. Its fantastic,super :).The location of the hotel is just 5-10 min walk to Suria Mall and there is also shuttle buggy service from the hotel( for lazy shoppers).The breakfast was with plenty of choice so well done for that. The room size is normal and nicely decorated. In the bathroom there are 2 showers and bathroom chair so you can use the shower together with partner :))) .
Highly recommended for location to Petronas and shopping.

Room Tip: High floor with Towers view :)

I stayed for 2 nights. I had a direct view of the petronas towers. The room was great with a large bath in the spacious bathroom. It didn't have a hair dryer, but maybe I missed it. It has everything else you would want.

The gym is excellent. Again with a fantastic view. And the pool is nice for a casual dip as long as you get out by 7, which is when the bar opens.
I attended the Skybar and found it full with fun people, guests, KL locals and tourists. A good vibe, and easy to make friends.
The hotel restaurant is convenient and the buffet delicious. The one thing I noticed, not just at Traders but KL in general is drinks are very expensive. My main meal was almost as much as my beer. So expect to pay a bit more on a night out.
Overall I enjoyed the hotel, staff were helpful and friendly and I'd definitely recommend staying there.
I'd recommend the room with a view of the towers, and IF you'll use it, the add-on/upgrade pack can save you money. You get buffet breakfast,free drinks between I think 5 and 7 plus food, and access to free coffee, tea, bottled water, etc.
