I stayed here for 2 nights. One thing I really dislike is the lobby lighting. The lobby minimize the used of light bulbs (which is good) and trying to utilize the day light from outside. However, every time when I get out from escalator and walk toward the lobby front door, the day light will make your eye not comfortable... More

G Hotel Gurney has a lot of potential; well located, large premises, slick decor, well maintained pool area but our experience was somewhat lack lustre and all the gloss soon faded. We checked in after 9pm and I was staying with my parents, husband and 3.5 year old niece in a XL suite. Check in was smooth, reception staff friendly... More

The hotel is connected to one of the largest shopping mall in Penang. The view was great and price was reasonable. The hotel is just opposite the beach. Staff was really friendly and helpful. We had a great stay.

Nice hotel, the deluxe room was very comfortable. You can find meal easily. And it's near from gurney local food court. The view was outstanding. The only one that bad was the wifi. Wifi's Signal strength is good but the speed only got below 2mbps. Btw, they got very nice lobby and cafe bar.
