The hotel is at Gurney Drive and beside one of the biggest shopping mall and a food center. With two of the favorite activities nearby, what more can one ask for ;-) Room is spacious and they provided 4 body towels and Aigner shower and shampoo. House keeping is efficient and everything in the room is clean and well maintained.... More

I've stayed in dozens of hotels around the world and the G Hotel would be one of the most relaxed of them all. The staff are very friendly, but there isn't any of that "in your face" overservice you get at some Asian hotels. Location is fantastic - right next to the awesome Gurney Hawker Market, but also some good... More

This is the newest boutique hotel in town, if I am not wrong.

Quite simply this hotel is fantastic. Staff are exceptionally friendly, attentive and polite. Rooms are modern, clean, large and well appointed. Pool was way above expectations and the gym was the best of any hotel i have stayed at. I stayed on the executive floor in a 1 bedroom apartment - worth every cent. The breakfast has a good selection... More

After reading about all the good things about this hotel, i was quite dissapointed with the overall stay experience.

This hotel is not quite in Georgetown and not quite in Batu Ferrenghi, so the location is a bit strange, right next door to a nice mall and a really good hawker food centre but apart from that, not much to see or do, unless you get a taxi somewhere (but the taxis are so cheap you don't mind too...
