G Hotel Kelawei rating 10/10
Just returned after a 3 days stay. Great to see the regeneration of this excellent hotel. Love the room, reception and lounge. The best thing about this place is the staff. Friendly, professional yet relaxed and personable. Salmi and Kevin are a standout at the Sunset Bar. Thank you so much for your outstanding service and great conversation. Front Desk, restaurant and housekeeping just out of this world. Security staff friendly and alway happy to have a chat. Management should be incredibly proud of their staff. Look forward to our next visit.

Getaway to Penang.
This was our second stay at GK as it's known to the staff, as previously we had a fantastic experience. We booked two executive floor rooms and they were both comfortable and well appointed with all amenities from soft fluffy pillows ( you can choose from a range of pillows from housekeeping) a comfy bed and a well stocked bathroom. Everything from check in went smoothly and efficiently thanks to the best staff. Thank you again to Leto, Rueben, Nancy and all executive lounge. See you all soon.

Clean and modern, good location, great service
We arrived at this hotel with a 45 MYR cab ride from the airport, and were checked in at the Executive level and shown to our room on the 5th floor very quickly. Great hospitality upon arrival, friendly and professional. The location of this hotel between the two malls of Gurney Paragon and Plaza is perfect for exploring the international shopping and food options in the two malls, which were largely empty during the weekdays. The hotel is also a short walk from the hawker stalls in Gurney drive, which is a thriving hotspot in the evenings. The heritage section of Georgetown is between 3 - 5 kms away, and can be reached by free (there is a stop right outside the hotel) or paid public buses, but much more easily by taking a Grab / Uber ride which is what we did all the time. Once, we did take a taxi direct from the hotel (the doorman hails it for you) which took us to the Georgetown Pernakan mansion at a fixed fare of 20 MYR, but Grab does it for less than 10, so be warned. Our room had a slim view of the sea (which is ugly here given the reclamation project going on), but the room itself was modern, clean and large, with a very nice bathroom including a large bath and separate shower. The "free" minibar had limited items, but a few sodas free a day is not so bad. Overall the room was close to perfect. We had breakfast included in our rate. The breakfast room is large and bright. The breakfast itself was reasonable in terms of variety, but fairly average in terms of taste. It was very very adequate though for a good start to the day. A special mention for "chef" Raj at the egg/roti counter who was wonderfully friendly and hospitable and really made the breakfast experience more pleasant that it might otherwise have been. We did have the option of breakfast and cocktails at the executive lounge at the top of the building (22nd floor ?) which had nice views, although we never really got to it. The pool is smallish, but again with a great view. We did order room service one night, and while the service was great, the food again was average. Overall, this is an excellent modern option in Georgetown, spotlessly clean and with good professional service. Highly highly recommended.

Great hotel
Location is fantastic, located between two shopping malls (gurney plaza and paragon) and a 5 min walk from the night hawker market. Staff members are friendly. Room was nice and clean. I would highly recommend this hotel and come back.
