Review: Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur


Kuala Lumpur has been my yearly destination. I decided to stay at Traders Hotel Kuala Lumpur by Shangri La, located in the heart of KLCC and with the Golden Triangle in close proximity, the hotel’s location was at its best. It has 571 rooms, range from deluxe to suite category to choose from. Upon entering the lobby, there will be a security screening that all guests must go through. It can be annoying but I applauded for the tight security to ensure all guests well-being and safety. The front desk is located at level 5. Check-in was quick and they require RM600 incidental deposit.

Deluxe Twin Towers View


The room is fairly spacious and clean with modern deco.


Deluxe Twin Towers view rooms offer unobstructed view of the iconic Petronas Twin Towers. Only at Traders Hotel you can have this view at the comfort of your room!


If you need to work, the full-size executive writing desk and fast WiFi really helps. Flat-screen LED television with cable channel and multiple built-in international adaptor is available for your use.


Chupa Chups surprise! Each day, you will receive welcome fruits too!


Exclusive Minibar and tea maker.

The wardrobe is equipped with iron facilities, plenty of hangers, bath robe, bedroom slippers and in-room electronic safe.


The bathroom has a bathtub and a separate shower with a sliding glass door.

Exclusive toiletries


View of the Petronas Twin Towers, park and KLCC Suria Mall from my room at Level 21

I ordered their room service for Dinner. They are kind enough to call to make sure that I received the food on time. I am hoping they will serve it on a dinner trolley since the room has only a small coffee table. However, they serve it on a tray but the steak tasted good!


Stunning view of Petronas Twin Towers illuminated at night

Swimming Pool and SkyBar at Level 33

Level 33 consist of the rooftop swimming pool and SkyBar. It also offers good view of the Twin Towers.


The pool is open daily from 6.00am to 7.00pm. After which, the pool will make way for the SkyBar. Please note that you need to be 21 years old and above to enter the SkyBar from 7 pm till late night.


You can get a drink while enjoying the unobstructed view of KL Twin Towers.


If you are too tired to walk to KLCC Suria mall, you can take the free buggy service from the hotel.


Traders Hotel caters to business and leisure travelers visiting Kuala Lumpur. Deluxe Room with unobstructed view of the Twin Towers is a hot selling and is a must if you decided to stay at this hotel. The property also easily linked by an overhead bridge to Pavillion Mall and Bukit Bintang shopping district .

8 Thoughts

    1. I love it too. Sadly, nope. Most of the hotels I stayed before in KL were 3 stars property. If you had the chance, Traders Hotel is my recommendation.
