This review is the combination of 2 recent stays. The first was flawless. Excellent room facing across the park to the Petronas Towers, friendly staff and a very good breakfast in the restaurant on the fifth floor (the hotel’s reception floor).
The second stay had problems. But you can tell more about what a hotel is really like when things go wrong. Without going into detail, we changed rooms twice, the second one while a maintenance person was busy with the plumbing.
The problems and room change were handled efficiently, professionally and, most important, without drama. The staff was absolutely excellent. They quickly acting to help make sure we had a pleasant stay.
The hotel has an electric cart to take guests to and from the Petronas Towers area even though you could walk it in under ten minutes strolling around the park. It runs to 10 pm, but stops when it rains.
You can get to a covered walkway at the Convention Center that will take you to the Bukit Bintang shopping, and an underground one to the Petronas Towers area.
There are two kinds of taxis in Kuala Lampur, budget cabs (red and white) and blue Premium ones. The blue ones are lined up in front of the hotel. If you want a budget cab you may have to walk to a street and hail one or ask the hotel to get you one. The blue ones initial drop is RM 6 vs. the budget RM 3.
This is one very good hotel with an excellent staff and location. We look forward to staying at the Traders again.
