Good location and Nice

Had a three-day vacation. The hotel location is very nice. I had booked three executive rooms for three families. Arrived hotel at 3pm and we were told that one of the rooms are not yet available. Maybe the mangement should increase its manpower during festive season. Also my room electrical power keep tripping. I had at least 10 times power trip during my stay. The hotel maintenance staff can locate the problem. Aircon thermostat also not working. At the end of our stay, we were told to pay additional govt tax for the stay as it is not included! Despite of these incidents, the stay are generally ok. Staff are courteous and friendly.

Excellent Location, Great Stay!

Located in between two shopping malls and the gurney hawker food centre is just 5 minutes away. Rooms are clean and spacious. Have a very complete gym and nice pool. Breakfast could have been better with the price you pay for the hotel.

Great Executive Lounge

Glad that I booked an executive room. Good selection of magazines, decent coffee and almost always stocked with fresh juice in the fridge - additional plus points. There's evening drinks with a decent selection of alcohol (not really a fan of alcohol but a good way to unwind). Was initially given a room with a bad smell from the toilet. Someone came to clean it up but the smell came back. Managed to change a room when we went back to the hotel at midnight. Breakfast was great (head up to the executive lounge for better coffee though!). Love the smell of the toiletries. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Good Stay but the hard mattress can be better!

Good location, modern hotel, clean room, but my only complaint is the mattress. It is just too firm for me. Wasn't able to sleep well for 2 nights in a row!

Comfortable stay

We were pleasantly surprised with a big room with plenty of space to lay out our luggage and a wide window. We caught the fireworks in Straits Quay on 31 August. Some considerations for the hotel: Addition of a handheld shower head. It was impossible to wash just our feet without wetting the head because there is only the overhead shower. Provision of tourist map of the city for a walkabout of the various districts. Your concierge had only a pull-out from a magazine and the road names could not be read without a magnifying glass.

Fantastic Hotel in Excellent Location

We stay 4 nights between the 22-26 August 2014 in room 709 overlooking the waterfront. Its a lovely view. This was my partners second visit and he absolutely LOVES this hotel. This was my first stay. The G Hotel is comfortable and very well located close to shopping, the water front and food markets. The lobby is really wonderful and the swimming pool area layout and design is one of the best I've ever experienced. The staff were excellent and at all times made us feel welcome and special. We were delighted by our stay and will certainly be back again. My only watch out is that the hotel is starting to shows signs of wear and tear. Some of the chairs in the lobby are showing signs of wear,some hallways need a fresh coat of paint and the carpet in our room needed steam cleaning. Also the lobby bar and pool side Cocktail menu needs to be spruced up. It's a bit boring. We really wanted to go all out both at the lobby bar and poolside but the cocktail choices were a bit basic. But otherwise...this hotel rocks and I would thoroughly recommend staying here.

Very good service

We ran into a problem with the plumbing in the bathroom, and it got fixed on the spot while we were having dinner at 9PM. Amazing! Room was very comfortable.
