I love it that they have superb, strong FREE Wi-Fi connections throughout the entire hotel and in the rooms. I get uncomfortable when I am not connected to the Internet and staying at Traders was just perfect.

I stayed at a corner room in a mid-level floor. Check out the view from my room window:

Traders Hotel, Kuala Lumpur has a famous SkyBar.

Perched on the 33rd floor, the SkyBar is a perennial favourite of KL’s party folks. The SkyBar has won many awards, including being named “Best Malaysian Bar” by the 2007 Malaysia Tatler Society, as well as “Best Bar in Malaysia” and “Best Hotel Bar” by the readers of Expatriate Lifestyle’s Best of Malaysia Awards for four consecutive years.

When I told some of my Singaporean friends that I was staying at Traders Hotel for this trip, the first thing they told me was that I have to visit the SkyBar!

SkyBar has seating for 280 and standing room for 320. Enquiries for private events for up to 150 people are welcome. It is open from 10:00am to 1:00am, Sunday to Thursday, and from 10:00am to 3:00am, Friday, Saturday and the evening before public holidays. For further information and reservations, please telephone the hotel on (60 3) 2332 9911 or send an e-mail to [email protected]
