I stayed at the G Hotel at the recommenation of my client in Penang. The hotel was very nice. The transportation/limo staff were very helpful and arranged a van for us to take six people to our client location on the south side of the island each business day. The hotel breakfast was very good. The fitness room had plenty... More

I had a very pleasant stay at the g hotel. It provides a very huge and nice breakfast table, beautiful pool and very nice big rooms. They had good service and polite staff. It was quite nice that i got some ice crème while waiting for the check in to be finished I would definitely go there again!

It was my second stay in this hotel. The staff were friendly and the ambience was very pleasant. We had breakfast, lunch and dinner in the hotel restaurant and all meals were excellent. My only complaint was the room carpet which I'm allergic to.

Just to clarify, I haven't stayed at the hotel itself. However I visit Penang at least once a year to visit relatives and always make time to visit the bar at the hotel to relax and unwind. It's more stylish than a k-pop artist, more comfortable than a freshly ironed shirt and very welcoming. Good wifi connection and right next... More

G Hotel is very close to a mall with lots of restaurants close by....like Western, there's a Chili's and a McDonalds right out back. They open late for breakfast, so plan on eating the hotel restaurant fare if you are meeting at 8:30 or earlier. The G Hotel does have a good restaurant, so no complaints either way. Rooms are...

This hotel is very nice. Modern, clean, spacious rooms, excellent shower, good food, Lovely outdoors bar, and a good location! It is a bit out of the heritage area of Georgetown, however, that is compensated by beautiful Gurney Drive, view of the sea, the most famous Hawkers food market at just 2 minutes walking distance, and the Hop on -Hop...

We booked a queen superior room and were really pleased with it. It was absolutely enormous, probably the size of 4 normal hotel rooms. I think we might have been upgraded to a king size bed and room. Bathroom was modern with good lighting and mirrors. Loads of storage space, plenty of lounging room. It was only a short taxi...

Location is great as it is within walking distance to mall and hawkers. The sea view is great! Stroll along the beach after dinner is good if the weather is not too humid. Buffet breakfast is great with wide variety.
