Having stayed at many Batu Ferringi and Georgetown hotels (including the Blue mansion) The G gave me an excuse to try Gurney drive, and I'm glad I did. Some of the negative reviews here prepared me for the worse and instead I found the hotel more than pleasant. I wish I'd had time to try the bikes it had on... More

Hotel room was very comfortable. The bed was firm which is a welcome change from what I've found at other hotels. Staff, especially manager Mr.Balan, was very accommodating for our needs. Location is terrific.

A great hotel for business and leisure tourists looking for a centrally-located hotel in the middle of town. Fantastic service from Mr Balan, the guest services manager for this hotel and his ground staff. He made the trip memorable for my company's guest VIP who stayed and raved about the hotel's service and views of the sea.

We reached the doorsteps of G Hotel after a mid-morning stroll and food expedition around Burmah Road and Macallister Road from Tune Hotel - a low-cost, no frills place we crashed at having arrived close to midnight on a Friday. We had walked and arrived at G Hotel around 11.30am. We had arrived early, and were most pleased that the... More

We just got back from Penang, where we stayed at G Hotel. This is the third time we have stayed there, and despite one recurring problem that we face, it remains our favourite hotel in Penang. Our problem with G Hotel is always at the start of our stay. Since I am highly allergic to feathers, we would always indicate... More

I admit I didn't read any reviews before going here as a friend booked the rooms. When I walked into the lobby, I was shocked at how well designed, spacious and thought out the lobby was with it's designer interior and comfy couches. Check in was a breeze as was check out. The rooms were large, though I think the... More
