I've been to G Lounge recently while surfing from web noticing they offer happy hour. Understand from brief information from wait staff, it doesn't include beer. Spirit, whiskey and brandy. Not much people in-house as majority people prefer outdoor seating which consider designated smoking area. Service was just expected and nothing to WOW the guest. Will consider again for re-visit.

I had the buffet dinner at Taste Cafe, ground floor of G Hotel Gurney on 15th April 2017. The spread was very good. Sashimi, seafood on ice, grill section with slipper lobsters, beef, lamb & duck, plus lots of sweet treats. Special mention to Ms Jenny for the good service. Will return soon.

Modern, chic and conveniently located. Flagged by shopping on either side and a short 5 minute walk to hawker food stalls. We travelled as a family with a 2 yo. Rooms are big and spacious enough for a couple of suitcases and bags. Expected mod cons. Just be mindful that they ask for a 200 RM deposit per night you...

We really enjoyed our stay at G Hotel, it had beautiful interior and huge comfy beds. The rooftop pool and bar was great and the breakfast was also really impressive with a good mix of Asian and continental food. We also paid a little more per night so we could get access to the executive lounge where you can enjoy...

I stayed here for 5 nights. The wifi signal inside the room was weak. Both my hand phone and notebook computer could not access the Internet and the hotel could not fix the problem. I don't recommend anyone who stay with this hotel for business because you have to go to lobby to get a good wifi.

Dear Guest I would like to offer my sincere apologies for the poor internet. We were in the process of upgrading our internet system unfortunately during your period of stay and this did cause inconvenience to our guest. The project is completed and we now have a dedicated 300 MB line. I do understand your frustration and sincerely apologize however...

The front office staff were professionals. They totally deserve more than 5 stars in terms of the service, facilities, venue and cleanliness. The internet speed was also awesome. The staffs overall were quite professional. The hotel was smacked right between the 2 most happening malls in Penang (walking distance, both less than 5 minutes). Food selection was not great but...

Hotel is linked to Gurney Plaza shopping mall & a short walk to the famous Anjung Gurney (hawker centre). So lots of shopping & food around. Got a room facing the sea which is great with 2 super-single twin beds. Clean & spacious room with iron & hairdryer. Good spread for breakfast. We were given Ice-cream during check in. What...

I like the lobby vibe and the lounge is reasonable cool to hangout if you want a easy one before heading back to the room. Great plus points for the convenience. Two malls next to the hotel. Very well equipped gym. Pool and pool bar is so so unfortunately. Perhaps it doesn't cater to much pool people, the food, service,...
