Came for a short stay here with my mother as the lockdown eases. Having not been for over 3 years, I am happy to report that G Hotel has maintained their rooms & hotel well - with excellent SOP in this pandemic inspiring confidence in their procedures. Staff were very polite esp front of house who were attentive and helpful. The rooms were clean, beds soft and comfortable and breakfast was good which enough choices- the only exception was the char kuey teow noodles were not that tasty. For a short stay next to the bustling Gurney Plaza mall and Georgetown & with lovely views of the bay and reclaimed island, I cannot think of a better place to stay than G Hotel.

Stay at this hotel for the excellent location and for the friendly service. Perhaps overpriced during peak times but I loved not having to drive all the way here and struggle to find parking. Easy access to two malls and the famous hawker centre. Would stay here again if I'm in town.

Was supposed to stay in G Kelawai, their sister hotel next door. But am staying in G Hotel Gurney because Kelawai is closed till Jan/Feb 2022. G is big and was upgraded to a rather large executive room - thank you very much. Room is large with great view though a little dated. At least it is clean. The most glaring difference is the service here compared to G Kelawai. Service here is kinda cold. I miss the smiles, practiveness and cares shown by G Kelawai. It is not doom and gloom though. The manager Lily was nice as she proactively tried to make things better after the feedback and a special mention to Danson at the coffeehouse. He was very warm and helpful

May be we are lucky that we can book the promotion package room. The front desk needs to be more detail in terms of verification on numbers of people since the room that we booked is for 2 person but the package offered by G Hotel is 2 + 2 additional beds. So, we expected the room are ready with 2 additional beds. However, the housekeeping did a good job as well. Overall is good.
