Aside from its location, G Hotel has nothing else going for it. I've never come across poorer service from a 4-5 star hotel. For the price that they charge, this hotel has extremely poor value for money and TRUST ME, pay a little more for other hotels or go for lesser "star" hotels and spend your money on food in... More

The Hotel is very conveniently located,next to the famous Gurney Plaza Mall. The Sea front adds to its beautiful lacale. The service and the ameneties in the Hotel are excellant. The rooms are very well appointed and clean and very spacious. All important places of visit in Penang are easily accessible from here.

I have stayed twice at G-Hotel and twice my room was upgraded to executive floor. First being the executive suite and the latest, the duplex unit executive suite. For the rate I have booked, no complaints there. The room is spacious, elegant and mini bars fully stocked. Definitely will return.

One word "ATROCIOUS!!!!". From the moment, we approached the receptionist to the end of the stay, it was one of the most disappointing stay at a so called luxury hotel. We patiently waited for our turn to check in as there was only one staff on duty, (this was at midday, not some ghostly hour). It took them 10 minutes... More

G Hotel staff are simply the best I have seen - from the reception counter to the pool man, and everyone in between. They all have a wonderful attitude, and made us feel so special and welcome, despite the hotel being fully booked.

This hotel has been billed as the hippest address in Georgetown, and rightly so, as one is greeted by uber-cool lounge music playing 24/7 and minimalist designer furniture dotted around the open-plan lobby. Not cheap by Penang standards, but lots of amenities thrown in(free business centre/internet, minibar etc), and the location can’t be faulted, next to Plaza Gurney and steps... More
