My husband and I stayed at the G hotel for the first time two weeks ago and found the location was right next to Gurney Plaza and on the breach front. There is a hawker food centre that starts from about 5pm every day with plenty of local food specialties to choose from which was very cheap and very tasty too.
The hotel lobby was a big open space with a lobby bar right next to the Hotel Reception area. As mentioned by everyone here already that the vanilla ice cream upon arrival was a nice touch/gesture and it worked well to help ease the long queue (if there was any). One thing that we did not like was the Concierge desk was on the same desk as the Reception and it was a bit different and confusing for us.
Check in was nice and easy with no issues - as per usual hotel requires either cash deposit or CC pre-authorisation for extra charges - so we provided cash 400 Ringgit which was promptly refunded upon check out which was efficient as well.
The complimentary wi-fi in the hotel room worked great with no interruptions which was a big plus.
The room and the bathroom were spacious, nice and clean however we were given a room with walk-in shower only with no bathtubs. I am sure a room with a bathtub can be requested upon reservations or check in.
I requested a firm or latex pillow after i checked-in however they have run out, so I should have called or contacted them earlier to reserve one for me!
The pool was quite big with a separate kiddies pool and a separate spa area. However we did not use these facilities.
We would definitely stay at the G hotel again in the future.
