Pro's - location awesum - sweeping views over wetlands - beautiful pool - not a busy hotel, but popular with business folk - connected to a huge shopping centre (go downstairs in centre to eat - cheap and very good) - our room was fantastic - the shower is the best I've been in - full commercial gym in the...

Stayed here for 2 nights from the 4th-6th January 2013. Had corporate rates so it is almost half the price of the published rates. This is my first time in this hotel, heard a lot of good reviews hence decided to stay here with 9 other guests. The lobby is lovely, what a great first impression! Front desk was less... More

Lovely hotel in a great location in the heart of Penang, close to many attractions, eating locations and shopping. We found the hotel very affordable and large clean rooms. The pool and the gym are also fantastic, both will be needed after taking in many of the culinary aspects of Penang. Highly recommended

This would have to be one of the best hotels we've stayed in. They say style comes with a price, but they're wrong in this case. The G is very affordable for what you get. It's modern, clean, the service is great, the restaurant is superb and you couldn't find a better location. Right next to the best shopping centre... More

Stayed in the G Hotel for about two weeks. I stayed in an executive room which included breakfast at either the executive lounge or lobby restaurant. Location: Located in the Georgetown area of Penang right along the ocean. This is about 40 minutes to an hour from the airport. This location is better for vacationing than business as most of...

We stayed 3 nights and had a good time in the hotel and on Penang in general. The hotel is modern and aims to be fancy and achieves that in most aspects. The pool area was especially nice, the pool bar men very attentive. Room service was also decent. The reception will validate your parking ticket an it pays to... More

G Hotel is in a great location by a good mall and overlooking the sea. The executive floor rooms came with buffet breakfast and cocktails in the evening at the lounge. There is also a free minibar. The staff are very polite and helpful.

Spacious room but not worth the price paid. Location wise, it is very ideal as Gurney Plaza is right next door and there's Gurney Drive for all your hawker food cravings. Instead of a welcome drink, ice-cream is served on a tray when checking-in. In my opinion, this is your standard hotel. I really didn't find anything to shout about... More

WHAT IS GOOD? Tight security. We felt safe. Strategic location. Just beside the famous Gurney food court. Plenty of food selection. Nice contemporary design. Probably best looking hotel in Penang. WHAT IS BAD? Toilet had some dirty stains. But overall room is fine. For the price we paid, should have at least a long shower or a hand shower.
