Stayed here 13th to 16th September. Opted for the fly solo room since I was out and about most of the time and only needed a place to sleep. There're several positive things about Grid 9:

(1) Location - it's just a stone's throw from the Maharajalela monorail station which gives you ready access to key places like KL Sentral and Bukit Bintang among others. It's also some 5-10 minutes walk (depending on how fast you walk) to Chinatown. There, if you wish, you can take the light rail at the Pasar Seni station, one stop from KL Sentral. This station itself is about 10 minutes from Grid 9. This is something to consider because if you wanted to take the monorail from KL Sentral to the hotel, you'd have to walk from KL Sentral to the monorail station which takes about 10 minutes. In other words, you have two rail options to get to Grid 9 from KL Sentral. Either walk from KL Sentral to the monorail station (10 minutes) and get off two stops later at Maharajalela and walk for a couple of minutes - or take the light rail from KL Sentral to Pasar Seni (one stop away) and walk for 10 minutes to Grid 9.

(2) Price. Because I booked about 2 months ahead, I had a great deal - under RM100 for 3 nights. Incidentally, my friend booked 2 days ahead and paid RM150 a night for the standard room with twin beds. I checked out his room and it was nice enough but I think that's not necessarily a great deal for the price. So book early and get a good deal.

(3) Clean. This is a relatively new hotel and so has a clean look. One blemish - the pillow cases on the two pillows on my bed had small stains. Otherwise, the bathroom, bedroom, bedsheet, etc. were clean.

Some reviewers have raved about the friendliness of the staff. They were pleasant enough, but nothing to rave about.

Don't expect too much by way of amenities - this is a budget hotel. You get towels, of course, and a little tube of shampoo and shower gel (that's all) so bring your own tooth brush, tooth paste and whatever other toiletries you need.

Hotels can get creative with their "Do not disturb" tags to hang on door handles. Grid 9's tag is "GET LOST". I'm not sure who came up with this idea but I thing it's a BAD one. By the way, my towel wasn't changed, nor were my shampoo or shower gel refilled, after my first day. After that I decided to hang the "GET LOST" tag since I only had a day to go before leaving and I had some things in the room that I didn't want (potentially) disturbed.

All in all, Grid 9 seems to be one of the best low priced hotels in KL and I'd certainly recommend it if you can get a good rate.

We loved everything at Grid 9 Hotel - staff, room, food, and location! ^__^

The receptionists are nice and helpful. They welcomed us with a big smile even though we arrived there at 3:00 am. The room was good as well as the bed linens (it’s very relaxing for us) however their LED TV had only few channels but its okay because weren’t in our room at day time. They have Gastropub where they serve foods. We enjoyed our lunch there, the sweet and sour chicken and the ginger beef served with rice and ice tea – it’s delicious! They also have lounge with computers, LED TV & pool table where you can relax. Furthermore, the hotel is accessible to monorail, Bukit Bintang, walking distance to Chinatown and also to Central Market.

It’s very suitable, appropriate and convenient to everyone who’s planning to have an excellent stay. I would definitely recommend Grid 9 Hotel.

Grid 9 was a fabulous place to stay, right next to a stop on the monorail.

The rooms were clean, the bed was comfortable and the single room while not very big, is a great size; fitted everything that you need without feeling claustrophobic at all.

Staff were helpful, key deposit was a bit of a surprise though, but they did accept other currencies and did return deposit in same currency.

Great place to stay.

This is the perfect hotel for a short stay. I was passing through KL and booked it last minute before I left Uk so didn't have time to sort out transit from airport and took a taxi which entailed a long wait then an hour drive and was fairly expensive. However I discovered there is a railway which takes you straight to the airport from Central which is only two stops on the monorail from Grid 9. Hotel is a short walk from Chinatown and two minutes walk to the monorail.
The room are compact but clean with a brilliant shower. Good internet. Lifts.

My family and I stayed at this home type of feel hotel for two nights. We all love the place. It was pretty clean and neat everywhere. The lounge was what I loved most because there were computers for people to use, travel books to look through, games for those to play, bean bags and a tv, It was spacious and I just really like the setting. Downstairs also had a bar/restaurant. It's great so we didn't have to run out to buy water or food. The workers and boss are super nice and helpful even in answering questions about places to visit. Grid 9 is really easy to get to since its located next to monorail and Chinatown is really close by to grab food and explore. The room we lived in had 6 beds and a bathroom. There weren't any bugs at all, which made me very happy. Haha. The only problem I had was with the door because it kept squeaking whenever we open or close it. Overall, its a great place to stay at while traveling.
