The time we stayed here by December 2010. That was Christmas season therefore hotel decorated very beautiful. We stayed 4D3N. They upgraded our room we were very appreciated. The hotel is very well maintained, clean and comfortable. It's just beside shopping mall and very famous night market.

Carpark : Easy to find and good

Check-in : Were brought to 15th Level Executive Lounge for private check-in at 2.15pm. Waited till 2.50pm before being allocated a room. Waiting time was disappointing. The Lounge does not have food most of the time, except for a bar of peanuts. In limited times, they will bring up some finger food, but will keep them as designated time.

Room : Clean and good. Free minibar of 5 can drinks and 2 kit-kats is very much appreciated. TV size is small. However, the fact that the hotel subscribed to the World Cup Channel (Astrosports) is worth one-star by itself and much, much appreciated. The air-con power in my room is not strong and needed a technician to come and adjust. It became marginally better. The Guest Service Button on my phone did not work, and needed a technician to repair.

Swimming Pool : Excellent.

Location : Could not have been better. Excellent.

It's a 4-star hotel but the World Cup Channel (plus the gesture of free mini-bar) brought it up to 5 stars.

I have stayed here twice. Service is average to good depending on the person serving you. We have experienced an obviously inexperienced staff taking half an hour to check us in; as well as a very helpful staff member who went out of the way to assist us.
The room carpets need replacing, and certain design elements are far from practical, such as the door-less shower stalls, mirror-less dressing table (only mirror is on the toilet) and see through bathrooms in the executive floor rooms (even after lowering the screen, one can still see into the bathroom).
The best thing about the hotel is it's location, within walking distance of two large shopping malls.

We stayed 2 nights at G hotel and this was our first time here. Our purpose in Penang was to eat, shop and relax. We managed to get corporate rates, so it was truly value for money. I'd definitely return if I visit Penang again.In general, the service staff are warm, courteous and helpful. he hotel lobby has a welcoming fragrance and the interiors are beautifully decorated. Spacious bedroom (but mattress a tad too hard) and bathroom (powerful shower). Although the mini-bar is free, there are only 4 canned drinks and 2 Kit Kat chocolate bars which are replenished daily. With close proximity (5 mins) to Anjung Gurney (or Gurney Drive hawker centre), Gurney Plaza (just next door) & Gurney Paragon, no other hotel along that stretch can beat it. There is a spa and hair salon within the hotel but we did not get to try them as our stay was too short. Don't forget your swim & gym wear, there is a nice inviting, infinity pool on the 3rd level and a gym too!

Room Tip: Request for a sea view room, you will not be disappointed! You can request for additional bottled wa...

We stayed with a two year old toddler for two nights. Ice cream were given upon a fast check-in. The room is spacious so our daughter can roam around the room. We had the chance to enjoy the swimming pool as well. Minibar is free. The bathroom is huge but no bathtub. The only minus point is the mattress is way too firm. We give the firm mattress feedback to the staff and they told us that they are in a process of changing all of their mattresses. The hotel location is strategically situated between two shopping malls which is Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon. Gurney Drive is just a 5 minutes slow walk from the hotel. Food stalls along the road is about 10-15 mins walk. Overall it is a good stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor. We were given a low floor with the window facing the mall parking lot. SO no...

Stayed her several times on business trips to Penang. The style is modern boutique and ultra stylish with high quality designer furniture. The executive lounge is great, I'd recommend paying for the upgraded rooms with lounge access. Pool area is a big attraction - all dark slate and deep blue water, although a bit overshadowed by neighboring buildings. The gym is world class with great quality equipment. I held a very successful week long meeting event for ~12 people and we are planning a larger conference for 50+ which we could hae held anywhere in the world, but chose Penang. The fact we are giving so much business to this hotel is testament to the quality of the accomodations, the service and the reasonable prices.

Room Tip: Upgrade to the Exec rooms with lounge access and a ocean view
