Wonderful hotel with strategic location”

Comfy room + great location

i personally in love with this hotel and will definitely visit again because my 3d2n stay there was absolutely great! first of all, the comfy room is the one that makes me wanted to return again because it is so much like home. the complimentary beverage in the mini bar, the nice lcd tv and the clean bathroom are the ones i cannot forget! in addition, the bed was super huge and comfortable. but this is not the best part. g hotel is sweet and caring enough that they allowed their guests to choose the type of pillows which we preferred. they actually do have a list of pillows which you can choose if you were not satisfied with the "default" ones. furthermore, for a shopaholic like me, the great fact that it is located next to the gurney paragon is definitely a bonus for me. i can shop anytime i want at gurney paragon. this is not just the case. you will never have the chance to be hungry because it is located at one of the famous road in penang, gurney drive. with walking distance, you can get the famous penang delight from the famous hawker stalls which is located at the same road as well. the beautiful scenery which is just opposite of the hotel is also another great part of it! however, the hotel does have some other areas which needs to be improvised. in example, the staff performance. i am really disappointed with the level of service their staff provided when i called the hotel for the very first time to confirm my reservation. the staff over the phone was not friendly at all. i believe a 5 star hotel should provides a 5 star services to the hotel guests. in addition, the parking space is also very limited as it is shared between the hotel and gurney paragon. hence, it is kinda frustrating every time when we get out from the hotel because we were afraid that when we return, there will be no more parking bay available. overall, it is a great hotel and i am loving it. definitely recommend others to go.

A classy hotel with the feel of home!”

Size and layout of room, amenities, location

Although I had heard great reviews of the hotel both online and from friends, we really did not know what to expect. The avant garde design of the reception area was a little overwhelming at first although the kids were thrilled. However, my husband and I were most impressed with the service of the staff from the time we were picked up from the hotel to the time we checked out. We felt right at home from the moment we arrived!. All the staff were extremely professional and at the same time friendly, helpful and warm. The room was also a pleasant surprise. We did not expect the standard room to be so spacious and well laid out. Even the bathroom amenities were organised in style (You will find out what I mean if you plan to stay there. Our room was cleaned within the short time we were away from the room. Now that is service! My husband and I also thoroughly enjoyed the massage at the spa. One definite plus point was the location. Not only was the hotel facing the breezy sea, we could just hop across next door to Gurney plaza almost anytime to eat, shop, or just relax. We were also only a short walk away from the famous Gurney Drive food 'centre'. On the whole, this was a short but wonderfully sweet holiday in Penang, made even sweeter by the pleasant stay at the g-hotel.

Trendy hotel with great location”

Nice trendy lobby and hotel rooms, good internet wireless connections, good service
Price, Swimming pool was not clean.

the g hotel is an asset to penang. it has a nice and modern trendy decor with selection of designer pieces in the lobby. it has nice local touches like bicycles for hire and souvenirs including the penang sketchbook. and it is in a very nice location that allows easy access to the city (if you are driving) i stayed there only for a day when i needed to extend my stay in penang because of work. moving from another hotel in gurney drive the g hotel was a step up. the location next to the gurney plaza shopping mall (a nice modern and comprehensive shopping complex) with lots of choices for restaurants) was ideal for the family to do some shopping before we left penang. the waterfront is ideal for morning jogs and the hawker centre a hundred meters or so away is convenient for those looking to sample some penang hawker fare at night. the swimming pool was also very trendy with nice areas for children and wooden decks for those in pursuit of a sun tan. unfortunately the pool itself was not so clean. my daughter and i went for a swim and found pieces of plastic floating in the pool and the water somewhat murky. other than this i would still strongly recommend staying at the g hotel for those who can afford the slightly premium rates.

Great Way to Get Away”

Easy Access and Convenience. Great Sea View and multiple dinning opportunities. Hospital in services and well organized.
Need to brighten up more especially near the lift access areas.

G hotel provides great hospitality and services that welcomes many visitors to have good fun and relaxing time along Gurney Drive which is one of the choicest locations in Penang. It is well positioned next to Gurney Plaza that offers great accessability and fine dinnings and shoppings for all the vistors. Services provided by the staff is excellent with good personal touch like a welcome drinks and smiles upon your arrival and the rooms are spacious and well furnished with good compllimentary drinks. The hotel facing the sea provides a very relaxing and wonderful sea view that I treasures in my memory. Together with the busy street activities along gurney drives does add spices to my stay in the hotel. It is a wonderful getaway for a relaxing holidays.

Stay at G Hotel”

Modern clean hotel. Sits next to Gurney Plaza. Walking distance to Gurney Drive hawker stalls.
We requested for a seaview executive room but was provided with a mountain view instead.

G Hotel sits next to a shopping mall called Gurney Plaza. It is also walking distance to Gurney Drive hawker stalls. The hotel is hype and modern. We like the lobby of the hotel. The front office staff were friendly. The doormen and the concierge staff were all helpful. Across the road from this hotel is the seaside. It is a great place to take a stroll after a good dinner at Gurney Drive hawkers. The Gurney Plaza has many cafes and shops. G hotel is definitely a must for all who loves to stay in good, clean accommodation whether on business or for leisure. But price of room is not cheap comparing to similar hotels in KL.

Fantastic hotel great in every aspect”

Great rooms with nice touches for guests from hotel, amazing location

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay with G hotel! The rooms were v spacious, clean, modern and comfortable. The hotel also had quite a few nice touches like serving guests with ice-cream upon check-in, complimentary drinks (6 cans per day) from the mini-fridge, unlimited mineral water (just request from them when you finish yours and they will be happy to send you more) and free shuttle from the hotel to Batu Ferringhi on Fri and Sat nights. The Spa at the hotel was good too, so if you have the time and budget for it, go pamper yourself. And they had a rather big and well equipped gym, so bring your gym gear if you want to exercise after pigging out on all the yummy food in Penang! Location was v good too right next to Gurney drive where there's plenty of yummy local food and there is a mall (Gurney Plaza) so you will pretty much be able to get anything you need.

Great place to stay in Penang”

good facilities, great location, excellent service

We selected G hotel because of the location and were alittle concerned as some of the reviews were not good. I requested an deluxe sea view room but since this was not available was pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a suite. The facilities were excellent and the furniture was in great condition unlike some of the reports. Service staff were attentive and pleasant but the best part was the location on Gurney drive, a short walk to the hawker centre and next to the best shopping centre in Penang, Gurney Plaza. The only downside was the hotel lobby was undergoing renovations and during peak hours the traffic is tremendous. Would definitely return!

Great location, good facilities, complimentary minibars, spacious room
Staffs should smile more

Stayed in a Standard Room for one night during my trip to Penang. The check-in was smooth and fast. The room is quite spacious for a Standard Room. One thing I like about the hotel is that they provide complimentary minibars which will be replenished daily. The room is clean and the beds are comfortable and I have no problem in having a good sleep. The room that I got has a great sea view. Location is great, which is just beside Gurney Plaza and Gurney Drive so you will have no difficulties in finding local delicacies. The hotel also provides basic facilities such as gym, swimming pool and spa. Besides that, you also can go for a drink at G Lounge or G Spot which they have bands performing. Overall, the hotel was good. However, the staffs should smile more and be more friendly.

Stayed in the Executive Suite for 4 nights, was ushered to the Executive Floor for my check-in by the concierge. Room was huge - 78 sqm, bed was super comfy, clean and good smelling room. Breakfast selection was great at Taste and a continental selection is available at the Executive Lounge. Evening cocktails at the lounge was complimentary, amazing sea view at the 15th floor. Gymnasium at G Hotel was huge and well-equipped. Conveniently located next to Gurney Plaza which houses a variety of fashion, restaurants, small eateries, cinema and karaoke. Gurney Drive Hawker was just a stone throw away, perfect for dinner and supper. Batu Ferringhi and Penang International Airport is a 30 minute ride from G Hotel. Georgetown is a 15 minute ride from hotel. Abundance of taxis and limos right at the door step of G Hotel. Easy access to G Hotel Kelawai by buggy from G Hotel Gurney. Japanese High-Tea at G Hotel Kelawai was RM 65 nett, pretty decent food. Enjoyable stay! Perfect for couples, business travellers and families.

Great Hotel in Penang”

ice cream, deco, complimentary drinks in the mini fridge, Danai Spa
only one small thing... I found some coffee stains on the table... could be a one time off thing... but otherwise, I would have given a perfect score for its cleanliness

I will highly recommend G Hotel to anyone visiting Penang. It's rather centrally located between Batu Ferringhi and Georgetown. Love the icre cream they serve when you check in... they offer you 2 flavours to choose from. Nice! Less than a min away (walking distance) is the Gurney Plaza and well... 5 mins away is the famous Gurney Food Market. Both are on the left hand side of G Hotel (front entrance) Island Plaza ia nearby but it's probably better to take a short cab drive than walk. There is a spa within the Hotel - Danai Spa and at you get to have a massage, scrub and bath... The pool may not be big... but it's definitely one of the nicer ones I see in the area.

Hawker food and shopping”

New and modern hotel, with a fully equipped gym. Located next door to Gurney Plaza, the best shopping complex in Penang, and with the Gurney Drive hawker stalls virtually on your doorstep.
Sound-proofing of the rooms

The main purpose for our stay in Penang was to shop, eat and visit family. To these ends, the G Hotel filled its brief. The hotel facilities and the building itself are very impressive. I was impressed with the equipment available in the gym and for those interested, the treatment received at the day spa was also of a good standard. The room itself was spacious and clean. The only criticism we had in terms of the hotel facilities itself is the sound-proofing of the rooms. For us, as we were out most of the day and had fairly quiet nieghbours, it wasn't really a problem. However, if this is not the case, I could see how it could be. The noise from the bathroom next door can be heard quite clearly (e.g. flushing toilets and the shower running - thankfully nothing else was heard!). The staff were all very courteous, polite and helpful. We requested and received a room with a nice seaview, although my wife and I had to sleep in two king single beds (even though we had requested a double) due to a mix up with the booking. We did not have any meals at the hotel (given the multitude of restaurants and eating places nearby), although we did have the breakfast buffet one morning and there was plenty to choose from. It was all fairly standard fare, western and asian, although I will make special mention of the mini chocolate croissants. Delicious! The location of the hotel was perfect for us. We were located right next door to what we considered the best shopping complex in Penang [compared to the others we did go to including Queensbay Mall (near the airport) and Prangin Mall (city centre)]. A taxi fare from the airport to the hotel was a standard RM38, although the trip to the airport was slightly more expensive. A taxi fare into the city centre is a standard RM15 (although we managed to bargain it down to RM12). The Gurney Drive hawker stalls are a 2 minute walk from the hotel and are a must for night time eating.

Thumbs up for this hotel!! G Hotel is located in a very good location. We enjoyed a warmth welcome by the hotel staff who always put on a big smile. The hotel room is very big & comfy with nice seaview. Imagie yourself wake up every morning with super seaview, it is really romantic and relaxing. The hotel is located next to a big shopping mall call Gurney Plaza where all famouns brands are availale in the mall. There are flea markets on weekend too. It is also location closed to the famous Gurney Drive Hawker Centre where we had enjoyed all the favourite local delicacies under the moonlight. The hotel also provide free shuttle service to Batu Feringgi where we enjoy street shopping along the road shoulder. Overall, we have a very pleasant experience with G Hotel and we will surely stay in this hotel again should we visit Penang in the future.

Great Location with big room”

Great location and friendly staff

Great location along Gurney drive with Gurney Plaza beside it a Gurney food centre a 3 mins walk away. THere are also many nice restaurants along Gurney Drive that serve nice food. Hotel is very well maintained with large room and comfortable bed. One thing G Hotel can improve on is to include bath-tub for their standard room. Staffs are very efficient and friendly. One of the bell boy can still remember my name althought my last trip was about a year back. I will definately stay at G Hotel again and recommend my friends to stay there.

Comfortable, convenient hotel next to shops!”

Great shopping, comfortable rooms, good facilities

My husband and I stayed here while visiting my grandparents who lived in a condo next door. So this hotel was extremely convenient with Gurney Plaza shopping centre right next door and famous Gurney Drive Hawker Centre just steps away. We were very impressed with the staff and our room at G Hotel. Upon checking in, we were pleasantly surprised to be told that we had been upgraded to a suite as the hotel was overbooked. The room was spacious, modern, clean and comfortable with a huge luxurious bathroom and complimentary water bottles and drinks in the minibar. Beautiful water views from the room and fast internet wifi. Short taxi ride to Batu Ferringhi and short walk to local markets for food and shopping. Highly recommended hotel!

Great hotel with great rooms”

Ambience of lobby, good location, near gurney drive food centre

I had such a great experience staying at G Hotel! We were upgraded to a bigger room, treated to ice-cream when we checked in. The lobby is so beautifully decorated and big plus there were many chairs and sofas to lounge around in, so it is a lovely place to hang out at. After checking in, the hotel staff even called to check on us and whether there was anything else they could do. Location wise, it is beside Gurney Plaza that is modern, clean and has many shops. It is also a short 3 min walk to Gurney Drive food center. Going to Georgetown is also convenient, about a 15 min cab ride from the Hotel. Overall, I really enjoyed my stay there and would love to go back again to G Hotel.

One of the Best Hotels in Penang”

Good Location, delicious cocktails at club lounge, Nice hotel ambience, Friendly staff

You can do your shopping spree at Gurney Plaza shopping mall located just next door. There are many eateries in the mall and located just 3mins walk away to the left of the hotel entrance facing the main road is the hawker style Gurney drive food stalls - not fantastic here though as it seems to have lost the local flavour. Highly recommend to try out the penang assam laksa at Mr Pot Cafe located just 5mins walk away to the right of the hotel entrance. Try their soup prawn noodle too. Liked the broth for both dishes - very fragrant. Also loved the penang char kway teow served at the basement food court of the shopping mall and the durian crepes sold at the small stall located just opposite the food court - very yummy durian flesh can be savoured. Room-wise, G Hotel has one of the best room decor and services. Liked their swimming pool and gym. Good to book the executive room that grants you priority check in and out at the counter located on the 15th floor - far away from the madding crowd. Staff are friendly and helpful - loved their services. Executive rooms guests also have access to the beautiful club lounge located on the 15th floor too - overseas the sea area and serves delicious finger foods during cocktail hours from 6 to 8pm every day, including free flow of drinks, coffee, tea and even some alcohol. Tasted one of the best finger foods over there - but recently, club lounge is getting more crowded and not as peaceful as before - wished they could expand the area though. But all in all, we loved this hotel and have them more than 3 times. It offers a very relaxing environment - highly recommended.

Good Customer Services, Great Location and Cosy, Spacious & Clean Room :)

We really enjoyed our stay with G Hotel in Penang, West Malaysia. Strategically located. Near to the huge shopping mall and the Gurney Drive Hawker Centre. We were greeted warmly by the staff upon arrival and they are very efficient as well. Good customer service provided indeed. We are truly impressed and it was such a good way to start off our 3-weeks long honeymoon. Keep up the good work and we will definitely choose to stay at G Hotel for our next visit to Penang :)

'G'reat hotel”

Rooms Location Staff Facilities
Check in @ 2 pm

We liked everything about this hotel. The staff were both professional and friendly. The room [superior] was spacious, clean and tastefully modern and for once actually matched the photographs on the hotel website. Bonus - the minibar was complementary and re-stocked every morning. The pool was nice. The hotel is co-located with Gurney Place and Gurney Plaza so determined shopaholics and foodies can get their fix within yards from the hotel. My family were very happy and we can 'hand on heart' recommend the 'g' hotel to visitors in Penang

Shopping and relaxing”

G Hotel has the best bed among all the luxury hotel tat I stay b4. Even extra bed is nice. Nice buffet spread. Nice Infinity pool. Swimming at night with the night lights so romantic and relaxing. Check in time with ice cream. Special 15th floor lounge check in for executive room guests. Nice experience. Gurney place shopping mall just beside. A few walking steps to Paragon Mall. Nice expensive hawker food at Gurney Drive. Walking distance. 200m. Best place in town with a best hotel. We come once a year only to relax due to expensive rate but worth it. See ya next year. Oh ya. Use ur Agoda points to deduct the cost. Hehehe...
