Really enjoyed my recent stay at the G. Got a special offer for a 2-night mid-week stay and it was well worth it. Breakfast was fab. I'm coeliac and was delighted to get GF toast!

I simply loved the g Hotel and, as you will see if you read my other hotel reviews, I am not at all easy to please. I was staying for 4 nights to attend a conference at the university. On arrival, I was given a complimentary upgrade to a suite and shown to beautiful accommodation, which included a plush sofa,...

Stayed here on honeymoon at the end of June. Hotel is contemporary and breakfasts are excellent. Rooms are sufficient but not exactly luxury. The biggest regret we have is actually paying the 10 euro each to use a spa that consists only of a sauna, steamroom and hot plunge pool. They even make you book a time to use this...

We stayed at this hotel with 3 little kids and a nanny and had 2 connecting rooms. The rooms are good and well decorated. The breakfast was quite good as well. Several weak points: 1) Extremely long and dark corridors with no windows and ventilation. They were very unpleasant to walk through for adults and certainly for kids. 2) Reception...

The g hotel is a very different experience with the added touch of glamour in the decor. Bedside lamps are hat shaped and the various lounges off the hotel foyer are a feast for the eyes.

The room was quite large for European standards. Comfortable, clean, the staff was efficient. The decor is a bit edgy and won't suit all tastes. A bit far from center, if you plan to walk to city center.

This is a very stylish hotel with its designer fixtures and fittings but it is not really central if you are a tourist wanting to be in the heart of things.

I stayed here soon after it opened and then it had the wow factor. Now there are many hotels with the same chic boutique look, minimalist design and well dressed staff. Moreover, the fabric of the hotel is starting to get shabby. I do not expect to pay €13 a drink to sit in couches and chairs that domestically would...
