Very huge and stylish lobby! Good location for local food and shopping! But not all the suites are facing the sea. I will recommend this hotel if you travel for a good beach! Here is the suggestion: 1) Breakfast price is good but slightly expensive! 2) Lounge was too small to occupied for all the club guest, more man power...

nestled gurney plaza & gurney paragon, defiantly a place for shoppers, but for those who want tranquility, better not choose this hotel, as it's jam pack and high in noise pollution the service was satisfying and overall i'll give it a thumbs up

The hotel itself is good. Beside a mall, u can get everything you need there. There's also an open air night market that serves good hawker food. There are also some good eateries on the right side of the hotel. Pool is quite acceptable. Although the hotel faces the sea the view is not good at all and there's no...

On a recent business trip my husband and I decided to stay at this hotel for a change. We had heard so much about it and we wanted to try it out. (We normally stay at the Trader's hotel.) We were booked into a suite. The first thing we enjoyed was the fact that it was along Gurney drive which...

My stay at the G was wonderful. The hotel looks directly over the bay and is nestled between two fantastic shopping centres and has many restaurants to choose from. The food and the service by the pool and bar was very good and overall I found the staff very helpful. Dinner at Sesame & Soy was devine. I would highly...

I travel to Malaysia several times a year, and generally stay at G because of its convenience to work, shopping and a good variety of restaurants. But the staff is marginal, there is always lots of confusion at check in, and the hotel has an overall time worn sort of feel. The best view from the rooms looks out on...

Very disappointed to know about the 2 weeks pool repair during the current 5 night stay for my vacation in hot and humid Penang island. No prior notification (which I will choose other hotels) and no plan to allow guests to enjoy swimming in other hotels during the repair period. Not a honest and caring hotel management. Will not return...

Dear Guest, Firstly, I was sorry to learn of your concerns with your recent stay and at the outset, would like to offer my sincere apologies for the disappointment you have expressed. Unfortunately the pool had an unexpected leak and we therefore had no alternative but to close the pool for these emergency repairs. As this was an unexpected event,...

Staying at exec floor, the room phone wasn't working once check in, took a day for maintenance of 4 man to come and fix it. Pick up and transfer service very poor, no communication given even after booked. Bad communication between departments, need to wait even book the chauffeur before arrival. Front desks need more staff to cover the customers,...

We stayed in the executive rooms, so in terms of room size and comfort, it was good. Unfortunately the swimming pool was closed for some emergency repairs and the room had no bathtub for the kids to play. Location of the hotel was excellent, just beside the big shopping mall and the hawker food stalls were also within walking distance.
