Reviewed January 4, 2010

Hotel was excellently situated with first class service. Food and drink were very reasonable priced and it was one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. I have been around the world in numerous 5 star hotels and this is different. Its stylish and modern and good for young and old. Even my parents who are old enjoyed it! its right next door to a shopping plaza with loads of good restaurants. I could not fault it in any way at all. First class and nothing to complain about. Wonderful!

We stayed here for two nights during Christmas. It looked very promising on its website. However, once we got there, we were pretty disappointed. The rooms looked good, but on closer inspection, they were VERY dirty. Our toilet seat still had urine stains from its previous guest. The carpet was blotchy with stains. There was dust everything. The shower stall was still wet. Their daily cleaning service was lousy.
Room service took a long time. We had to call them three times before they came up.
The hotel pool was very busy and there was a constant troop of screaming kids. The spa is located right next to the pool so we didn't even bother trying it out. It didn't look very good either.
The only redeeming features is that the food is ok and the location is excellent (right next to the Plaza Gurney mall).

While most hotel lobbies are stuffy and faux-grand, G's is unique, trendy, fresh and actually makes you feel welcome and relaxed. The rooms also have character relative to the sterile rooms found at most hotels.

Our room was clean and the service was quite good.

There is plenty of tasty (and cheap) food in the area, but the beach is not very nice for swimming or sunbathing.

The location of the hotel is next to a shopping mall with a late night street food area minutes away. We swam in the horizon pool and warm towels are available! There's always taxis waiting outside the hotel. The trip from the airport to the hotel cost about RM42. It's a great location, with great facilities. We stayed on the Executive floor so we were able to print our boarding passes with the printer in the Exec lounge.
We liked the proximity to other eating places like Pulau Tikus and New Lane.
My wife loved the in-room ipod/iphone docking station.

This is a hotel where people will talk about. Great service from all level. You wont miss home when staying at G hotel. It's only 3 minutes walk to Guerney Drive food centre and a stone throw away to Guerney Plaza Shopping mall. It reminded me of Princess Pratunam hotel where the maboonkrong shopping mall is only below the hotel.
Highly recommended to stay at G hotel.

We were there for a 5-day stay and each and everyone enjoyed the hotel. When we arrived at the hotel, we were immediately served with your homemade ice cream. We had booked the 2 bedroom service apartment and a standard room. The rooms were huge and clean. However, there was no washer and dryer in the service apartment but I was told it was available. We had our rooms extended till 4pm at no extra charge as we were departing in the evening. Gym has a fantastic sea view so I enjoyed very much while I was there. Staff were very friendly and helpful. There was no washer and dryer in the service apartment as I was told.
The location is superb, next to it is a shopping mall, Gurney Plaza. The food center is next to the Gurney Plaza where you can good food. My favourite is the fried oyster omlette but the queue was quite long so be prepared to wait. Chee Cheong Fun is fanastic too especially with the prawn paste sauce (different from Singapore style)

Will definitely go back there again when my next trip to Penang.
