The Best I’ve been in Penang
I recommend G Hotel. It’s service and location is excellent. My wife and I had a pleasant stay there. It’s management is great with giving attention to every details and staffs are very professional and helpful. It has a rooftop bar which can enjoy great view and enjoy free drinks in the evening at executive lounge. I left my mobile charger in the hotel and Joe Ann was very efficient and helpful in mailing it to me.

Excellent hotel.
Really enjoyed our stay at G hotel. The place is modern, clean and the service was excellent. We stayed in an executive room which was very spacious. The included breakfast and evening drinks and snacks were really good. The staff were also friendly and helpful, even offering to extend our checkout time for free to accomodate our flight out time. The hotel is also close to nice shopping malls and a hawker centres if you’re into that. Just a short taxi (Grab) ride into Georgetown too. Highly recommended.

The staff was really friendly, well trained: on par or exceeded guest services of large corporate hotel chains. Privately owner and perfectly operated! We will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Penang.

Jim, us3 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
G Hotel Kelawai is a very nice with outstanding service. We stayed in an executive room which gives you access to their roof top lounge and also to the lounge of their neighbour hotel. All in all I am very pleased and highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Penang. Two suggestions I have are: food labeling on the breakfast buffet is insufficient for vegetarians. It was unclear which dishes were vegetarian and we had to ask each time - and staff didn't always know. Since the hotel standards are otherwise very high, I would expect food labeling to be clearer. We used the spa for a facial treatment which was pretty expensive and quite disappointing.
