“Modern in an old city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 October 2013

It was really interesting to stay in such a modern hotel in an old city. It was very walkable, we walked into the town center each day and it was a nice walk. The breakfast was very good and the staff was accommodating. Our room was very nice, and we were treated very well. My only complaint would be that the carpet in our room was stained, and not just a little, a lot. It was white carpet which I am sure is hard to keep clean, but it was gross.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for choosing to stay with us at the g earlier this month. It was lovely to read that you enjoyed the location of the hotel and our breakfast offering in Restaurant Gigi’s. Our ladies and gentlemen were delighted to be mentioned in your review. Please accept our apologies that the carpet in the bedroom you were allocated was not up to the usual high standards we pride ourselves on. We are currently in the process of replacing the carpets in our guest rooms. We do appreciate your review and we hope that you will stay with us the next time you are visiting Galway.
Kind Regards,
The g Hotel Management Team

We recently took a trip to the G to celebrate our friends birthday, from the welcome we received on arrival into GiGi's, a most wonderful evening, most delicious food, best steak in town, we reckon the head chef must be female! Our waiter Antonio was most hospitable! And to top it all off he even arranged a Special Birthday plate which was most appreciated! A wonderful location but it's the staff that really made it for us! The West is best for sure! We will be back!

Stayed August 2013, travelled with friends

My wife and I stayed in the G hotel at the start of Sept. The excellent service started the minute we stepped into the hotel.Our room was spotlessly clean and the cupcakes was a nice touch . We booked the trip as it was our wedding anniversary and we got a lovely message and truffles from the reservation staff which was very touching. The ESPA was out of this world (highly recommend the ice fountain) and the relaxation room was amazing.We had a meal in the restaurant on one of the evenings and the staff there couldnt do enough for us(especially the restaurant manager)
Everything about this hotel was amazing and we cannot recommend the G hotel highly enough.

We stayed two nights at this property. Good rooms, breakfast and amenities. Interesting decor--very contemporary and attractive . The staff were amazing--so helpful. I especially want to thank Noel for his great advice on restaurants and sights to visit. Would certainly stay here again.

G hotel never disappoints. One of our favourite hotels, always looks fantastic & never dated like some hotels these days. Jana looked after us during our stay, friendly yet professional. Galway, great city, come rain or shine but mostly rain, we are in Ireland after all!!

Stayed in the G hotel Galway again a couple of weeks ago. Stay once or twice a year. Normally visit for the weekend for leisure but this was a whistlestop of 1 night midweek. Staff friendly and helpful, really nice people. Had dinner in the lounge - scallops, some fries and a glass or two of prosceco - heaven. Service efficient and seemless. Would recommend a visit to anyone.

the g hotel galway is situated just outside the city which is a short taxi ride away. Wonderful view of the bay from the room. The hotel was beautifully decorated,extremely comfortable,easy to get to and drink and food were excellent. what impressed me most was the friendliness of the staff and their willingness to be as much help as they could. Anything we asked for we got straight away and with a smile. anytime I stay in galway ill be staying atr the g hotel,wel worth it
