We've found this hotel on tripadvisor before we came to Kuala Lumpur. We booked online for a reasonable price. We came from the airport, by monorail. We arrived at the station Maharajalela. When you arrive (if you come from KL Sentral), make sure you don't make the same mistake as us, and get to the other platform before leaving the... More

I live and work in Klang Valley. Was there to have the backpacking feel. Booked the Super Pods an hour before arrival at 12 midnight. Upon check-in it was fully booked. Got upgraded to a single bed. Syiok-ar. Just missed the backpacking experience as it was a single room. Nice place to rest & got to sleep-in almost the whole... More

Rooms were very reasonably priced, clean and had tv which was also good given the price. Breakfast not included but was good value and tasty. Staff were friendly and helpful and the location is good because it's very near the tram line and within walking distance of Chinatown. One drawback was that our room had no window, which I would...

We stayed at this hotel within the reaso it's the cheapest one in many of other hotels in Kuala Lumpur. Rooms are tiny, but enough with all everything you need for a night stay. The location is also very good - few minutes of walking to monorail station. Staff is very friendly, free wi-fi, and nice cafe with breakfasts. Come... More

My boyfriend and I booked grid 9 after reading how great the location is and all the positive reviews. Yes there is a station near by and yes the rooms are clean (ish) and have beds and a bathroom but apart from that there are not many more positives . The walk to chinatown (or anywhere) involved walking beside a... More

Stayed at this hotel as it looks the cheapest in Kuala Lumpur. Rooms are tiny, but everything you need is there. And location is perfect - just near monorail station. Staff is very friendly, free wi-fi, and nice cafe with breakfasts. Not sure if it's ok for long period, but for 2-3 nights is perfect. Note: you may hear your... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We built Grid 9 with a vision to create a social experience unlike any other hotel. Inspired by the design of a grid, we want the paths of our guests to intersect, forming a network of globetrotters around the world. More than just a hotel or a flashpacker, we are a hybrid of both. From our pods to our rooms, from our lounge to our gastropub, the Grid 9 experience is what differentiates us from the pack.Located in the heart of KL, we are a 10 minute walk to Chinatown and right next to the Jalan Maharajalela monorail station.P.S. The wifi is free =) ... more   less
