My experience at Traders Hotel by Shangrila in Kuala Lumpur
Looking for one of the best places to stay in Kuala Lumpur? Look no further. Traders Hotel is a great choice for its great features and an ideal location next to KLCC Park and Petronas Tower. Traders hotel is ranked as one of the best hotels in the KLCC area.
I had stayed at Trader's Hotel a couple of times in the last 3 years. The place is in high demand and the best way to get the most competitive rates is to book in advance .
The hotel is ideal if you want to stay close to the centre of the city and want to enjoy shopping and dining out without the hassle of driving into different parts of the city. If booked in advance you can get a double room for around $US130 for a double room including breakfast, which is quite a deal.
Trader Hotel is ideally located in KLCC
The standard rooms are quite comfortable with modern decor and services available. The check-in counter is on the 5th floor of the building with a cafe right in front. The cafe is open for lunch buffet till 230pm. A la Carte menu is available with a mix of international dishes, fish and chips as well as local delicacies. I tried oxtail soup and nasi lemak with as great. The service is impeccable.
Gobo Chit Chat Cafe is a great place for breakfast or light lunch
A spa is located on the 34th floor offering a wide range of services. A one-hour massage costs around RM 240. The indoor rooftop pool is located adjacent to the Spa on the same floor.

Shaped around the rooftop pool, enjoy the ambient atmosphere of Middle-Eastern and modern decor. Light food is also served on the weekends. The crowd is trendy and hype and Skybar is a great place to meet like-minded travellers and visitors to the city.
At night time you can sit right next to the windows overlooking KL central park and enjoy the night views and live music at the pool. Skybar is a must-visit even if you are not staying at Traders.
