Traders Hotel by Shangri-La, Kuala Lumpur

I almost forgot about my trip to Kuala Lumpur a few months back until I scrolled my photos and noticed that I haven't done a review on Traders Hotel. 

The hotel's strategic location opposite Suria KLCC and adjacent to KL Convention Centre is one of the reasons why it is always in demand among both business and leisure travellers alike. The hotel boasts of 571 guestrooms and suites in total, and direct covered access to the KL Convention Centre. 

Arriving at the hotel from the airport, a doorman helped to open my door and carried in my bag. I noticed there was a few security personnel on standby, perhaps due to the hotel's location near KLCC which is quite high-security area.

While most hotel lobbies are located on the ground floor, Traders Hotel's lobby is located on the fifth floor opposite Gobo Chit Chat restaurant. Checking in took some time for me because of the crowd but other than that, the process was smooth and easy. The staff was attentive to my request and remained courteous even during busy time of checking in quite a large crowd.

I stayed at its 32sqm Deluxe Room which affords me the view of KLCC fountain. The room features contemporary design and modern amenities to provide a comfortable and memorable stay. Cozy lighting provides a warm and relaxing ambience after a day's of hard work / sightseeing / shopping. The room is outfitted with two spacious single beds, a long working desk with glass top which also housed a flat LCD TV facing the beds, an ergonomic office chair, a two-seater sofa and coffee table and a lounge chair.

Meanwhile, the bathroom's luxury is accentuated by the polished granite tiles that are used throughout the bathroom. The translucent sink is illuminated with yellow lighting, lending the bathroom a touch of elegance to its overall concept.

After work, I decided to have my dinner at KLCC. Despite the short distance, I decided to use Traders Hotel's complimentary buggy shuttle service as I was in a hurry to meet up with a friend. Not only it is convenient to hotel guests, it is also a favourite among young guests to ride on a buggy. Well, in my case it is just convenient when you are in a hurry.

Although I don't have any picture of the breakfast spread at Gobo Chit Chat, it is worthy to mention that Traders Hotel work hard to bring a variety of sumptuous breakfast buffet spread ranging from local to international dishes - from Western to East Asian and Oriental dishes to cater to guests from all over the world. No wonder Traders Hotel remains a much sought-after hotel among KL guests.
