G Hotel In Penang Island

Last weekend, for the first time, we stayed in G Hotel which is just next to Gurney Plaza. It is very convenient for us, shopping and hawker food galore are just next to each other. A five star hotel, my kids and I were amazed at their spacious lobby and room.. (like coming out from village)...Anyway, don't think of the rates la.. (the bill will come later ma)

the "G" sign just right outside the hotel...

someone standing below the "G"

the lobby was filled with the sweet voices
of carolling during the evening...

the "tree"

the vast and spacious lobby

the bar corner ...

you can relax here...

or here...

"wanna drink?"

he said, "no, i just wanna pose"

the comfortable room...

Right opposite the G Hotel
is the Gurney Drive
facing the sea...

We had planned to stay one night only in G Hotel but somehow.... we ended up staying 2 nights instead... wait till the bill comes, then I wish it was one night instead.... be continued....
