The room decoration is simple but it look like 6 stars. Bathroom also :) Location - very convienence to eat around and shop. Good & tasty hawker food beside Gurney... More

This was my many trips and my last to G hotel. I was hoping to meet up with the general manager, Mr Marco but was told he was no longer with the hotel. I of course was hoping to see the new general manager but he just walked past me knowing I was seeking an audience! If this is the... More

Great hotel with beautiful views. In the main hotel area with a mall right next door. We arrived nye - the hotel party showed promise but no people! Found the staff lovely but not overly helpful though that seemed to be true everywhere we stayed in Malaysia. Pool, spa and gym were all top notch.

My stay at G Hotel, Penang has left me wondering if any other hotel could ever meet their standards of luxury and service! They left nothing to chance, taking care of every minute detail, right down to the ribbon-wrapped bath towels! They had wired and wireless braodband internet available at all times - this came in especially handy when i... More

My stay at G Hotel was truly an amazing experience. The staff were extremely warm and friendly, especially Mr Silbaras Manee, who made our stay a memorable one with his hospitality. The delectable buffet spread at breakfast always made a great start to our mornings as well, and the staff were prompt in their service. The rooms were spacious and... More

We stayed at G Hotel recently and upon arrival it seemed very smart, staff were polite and we were offered a welcome scoop of ice cream - which was a nice surprise! I think we were in the cheapest double room you could get, and we found it to be clean and tidy, bathroom could have done with a bit... More
