We recently stayed at Traders Hotel for one night (a Saturday) and were very disappointed. We paid extra for an upgrade to a club room which included afternoon tea and evening cocktails with a great view of Petronas Towers. Check in was relatively quick and easy and we hung out by the pool while we waited for our room to be ready. Tea and cocktails was a nice touch and the service was quite good. Our room was nice and we had a great view of the Petronas Towers.

We enjoyed our stay at Traders up until we came back late after dinner, returning to our room around 1am. We were very tired and looking forward to a good night's rest, however, a loud thumping noise and music loud enough to sing along to prevented this from happening. On the weekends the rooftop pool turns into a nightclub and they have VERY loud music. We could hear the music over the TV it was so loud. We were on the 31st floor and the club was a few floors above us and we could still hear the music, word for word. We called the front desk, who admitted that this was a somewhat common problem, and offered to move us into another room. At this point it was nearly 1:30am, we were in bed and didn't feel like packing up all our stuff to be moved to another room. I don't understand why they put their club guests on a floor where there is disruption from the club. In fact, they shouldn't put anyone on that floor until they do some proper soundproofing. We decided not to move as we didn't want the hassle and ended staying up until 3am when the club finally closed. Needless to say we were incredibly unimpressed.

We asked to see a manager the next morning but due to it being a Sunday there was no manager on duty, which we found odd. There was no compensation given, and even though we were assured that a manger would email us, we are still waiting to hear from one and over a month has already passed. We even emailed the hotel to no avail.

We were hoping that Traders would provide some sort of apology and incentive to return to the hotel because other than the problem with the music, we enjoyed our stay there. We currently live in Jakarta and will be returning to KL often over the next year, but we will not be returning to Traders due to not only the music, but the fact that we have not heard back from a manager and that they even put people in the upper rooms when they know that the loud music on the weekends is an issue. Without the disruption of the music, I would have given this hotel a top rating.

Room Tip: Do not stay on one of the upper floors.

Usually I have my special hide out in KL for business (5 star) but on this occasion decided to try out Traders KL for a change - and in particular because of its location. Location - yes - absolutely wonderful. I had booked a suite - since the rooms with twin tower view were smaller and appear not to have a separate living area. I ended with a very nice room but with city view - buildings. I requested for a high floor room which usually in KL I have always been accommodated but this did not happen at Traders KL - request was ignored. Apart from initial confusion at the check-in with the suite that I had booked - the stay was very comfortable. The staff at Traders Club were wonderful - they went out of their way to please and were very accommodating. Arrangements for parking for my guests at the hotel were taken care of professionally by the staff. The parking was charged to my room but I was happy with the arrangement. The wifi worked very well - that simplified my access to network and ease of communication at whatever location I was in the hotel. Just to single out - the staff at Sky Lounge and Trader Club were a delight. Unfortunately the restaurants in the hotel were not what I expected. Went for dinner taking several of my guests at 9:40 p.m. on Saturday evening - we were told that we have some 20 minutes to manage the food. Decided to walk out!!! If I choose to return to Traders KL - it will be because of the professional approach of the staff at Traders Club. Well done.

Room Tip: Try for high floors - but good luck if your request is addressed.

I stayed in Traders over 3 nights and couldn't fault the place. From the pickup from the airport to the checkout the staff were fantastic and the location is top rate.

I would highly recommend for business or couple travel.

Room Tip: Ask for the twin tower view rooms...

Excellent stopover hotel. Step outside to fantastic views of the petrona towers , just walk across the park and you are at the shopping centre.
Hotel rooms high standard, unfortunately we werent lucky enough to stay in one of the tower view rooms! The breakfast was amazing! Everything you could possibly imagine was avaliable!
Staff were friendly and helpful and exceptionally smart.
