The bed and room temperature is very comfortable. Enjoyed the stay a lot and the cleanliness of the hotel is superb. However, the in-room breakfast range could be improved with more items included for a set.

Danny, us3 night trip with friends
Exceptional 10.0
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.

Not in a standard as a 5 star hotel. Disappointed of the facility

Good 6.0
Close to shops
The hotel is next to two shopping malls and walkable. The room doesn't have a balcony, the gym doesn't have any windows it's covered in mirrors. The executive room allows happy hour drinks and snacks but gets busy very quickly. There is a bar at the top with the pool that overlooks the city which had some live music at night which was great. We shortened our stay and went to KL early.
