          • The location cannot be better, the design and comfort of the hotel is great too, some staff are more hospitable than others. The rooms are lovely and the breakfast has a good spread on local and western dishes.

            The restaurants in the hotel were fully booked, was very annoying.

          • The location is very convenient and gurney drive hawkers are just a 5 minute walk away. G hotel is a short taxi ride from georgetown, the services are good and toilet shower need add adjustable shower head as well as toilet bowl need to add 2 way washer. The foods and cocktail provided are amaizing and delicious.

            Room rate too high and dreadful electronic music played around pool.

          • Very near to shopping center, less than 10 minutes to and from downtown, great location and will tell all our friends to stay there. The service has improved from day one and has somehow balanced up the cold design in the lobby, the staff are also very friendly, the room is nice and good. Breakfast is pretty decent, the facilities are excellent.

            Hotel seems to be a little run down even quite new.

            Fairly good value for money in that location and upon return, the sheets of course was not changed. The breakfast at the club was limited.

          • Convenient to shopping centre and i particularly liked the strawberry juice and hot waffle station. The hotel room is clean, the service has improved from day one and has somehow balanced up the cold design in the lobby, two factory outlet stores offer good bargain shopping. Night food market is just down the street, famous shops are all within walking distance and all staff are well trained to be formal and friendly. The bathroom is very small and buffet breakfast is also very nice.

            Upper Penang road not more than 10 minutes in a car, weak signal for wifi and the remaining chairs, sofas were very uncomfortable.

            Other public areas and car park is too small and a bit chaotic. Staff could not care less, bed is too hard.
