Traders or Parkroyal?


They both seem similar priced. I'm not sure how far Traders is from Bukit Bintang.

Which hotel would be better in terms of comfort and location overall?

Traders is newer and "near" KLCC (to me its still quiet a walk).

Parkroyal is just off Bukit Bintang and right in the shopping belt.

I pick Park Royal for its location.

Hi deyveed

Park Royal to me is an old hotel. Traders is just next door to the Petronas Twin Towers and it is new with some nice gardens (you can go for a walk). I would go for Traders. It also has a pool bar with a nice view.

Hi David, on the cue of location, Grand Park Royal will be better,and it has also been refurbished. location wise, particularly close to monorail,for you to move around, is definitely Grand PArk Royal.

As you have also asked, Traders is around 10-13minutes distant by walking to Bukit Bintang,where by now, I should think you can use the walkway just after Menara Hong Leong/Novotel Hydro Majestic Hotel, to bring you into Pavilion shopping mall,and onwards to Bukit Bintang area.

For convenience of myriad choices of eateries, Grand ParkRoyal is certainly notches up of Traders.

Hi I have stayed at both - rooms in Parkroyal (if deluxe) are bigger but if you are partiularly sensitive to noise, ask for a room facing the back (not a nice view but you get some sleep). The views at Traders are generally better but further from the hub but nearer to KLCC where there are restaurants, food courts and shops.
