Stayed there most of the time when traveled to Penang Island. The rooms are great. Very modern-like and spacious. Facilities like gym and the swimming pool is awesome. Normally when choosing a hotel, i really consider the location. As for this hotel, it's location is one of the best ones. Since its just right next to Gurney Mall and Penang's... More

Rooms are spacious and well maintained. However the bed was a bit hard and shampoo and bath amenities were minimal. Small tubes and had to ask extra every time as my daughters hair was long and we were 3 in a room. Maintenance was doing repair work one afternoon when we wanted to rest, the knocking went on for almost... More

I have stayed here a few times and every day, the staff at the breakfast buffet is short handed. Even pouring coffee at the table when you sit down and asking for refills was a chore. It seems that they only have 3-4 staff on a shift. The Western looking manager was always there to help but seriously, get more... More

My partner and I stayed here for 6 nights. The check in process was quick and we were given welcome icecream. Our room was on floor 6 and had a nice view of both the water and the city. The room was big and the end was bigger than a king bed. There was a desk, fridge with free mini-bar,... More

The hotel is situated between 2 malls which houses many shops featuring international and local brands as well as amenities like supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants, fast-not necessarily thefood joints, hair salons, spas, etc. It can potentially occupy the shopaholics for hours and one can culminate the trip with foot reflexology! A short 3-min stroll away is the famous Gurney Drive where... More

This is a place to stay if you are going to Penang. Most of the rooms have a view of the bay from the rooms. Next to a mall, so lot of restaurants and close to shopping (if you are interested). Breakfast was good. The only negative I have about the hotel is that they did not have a car... More

G Hotel is well located next to the Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon, which will appeal to those who wants to shop in comfort and many choice of restaurants. If u want to try local food, best to venture to Georgetown itself. However, Pulau Tikus is very nearby where we found a good Penang prawn noodle. The rooms are relatively... More
