This hotel requires no further embellishment. For starters, it is located in close proximity to prominent shopping centers and famous gurney hawker street food. It is also endowed with a breathtaking view of the sea in the timeless and ever charming Penang. Staffs are affable and guest centric; room is contemporary and unusually spacious whilst amenities are well provisioned and... More

Great location in a rtizy area of Georgetown. Staff are well trained and very accommodating. Rooms assigned to us were a bit dated and need refurnishing. Lobby area is very trendy and open. Located next to the mall with easy access to shopping and nurmerous restaurants. Overall if great value for the price.

When i first chose this hotel, i never imagine that I will receive the most special treat at this hotel. I booked the executive room and as usual they will send me to the executive lounge which it is located at level 15 in this hotel. And what amazed me is... the view.

I stayed at the G Hotel in March this year for a business trip when my company had a large scale internal conference at the same hotel. The room was very large, clean and well equipped for business activities (wifi was strong). I didn't use the gym or pool but the staff were generally nice and well trained. The café... More

We always stay in the signature L suite, which comes with a king-sized bed or 2 single ones. This is sufficient for our family of 4 as my wife and kids take the king bed while... More

Went for buffer dinner on Friday night... The description of the buffet items has attracted me to go there. The hotel looks impressive and beautiful, so went there with high expectation.... It turns out, very disappointed. The food quality does not match with the hotel reputation. The grill lobster is not fresh, and the prawns are over cook. The dessert... More
