Hotel is centrally located at the Gurney area with easy access to both shopping malls and street food. Room was comfortable and well maintained by housekeeping staffs. Only complain would be insufficient charging points, there's only 1 in the room.

Pleasant stay
Rather busy during the period I was staying at the hotel. The pool has amazing view since it’s at 24th floor, highest floor of the hotel. Receptionists were helpful at many occasions. Breakfast selection was a little below expectations. Otherwise, good hotel.

Simple but good
Super clean. Feels different from the usual malaysian hotels which earns a moniker... good for only first year of new opening. However for some reason aircon not working that well in the midnight onwards... cannot explain why

Baby G is far superior to its larger sibling.
Have hitherto stayed at the G Hotel Gurney and decided to try out the Baby G this time. Was a very welcome and pleasant surprise. It’s quieter and friendlier. Not noisy and buzzing with out of control children in the common areas including the dining areas. Guests are entitled to free car parking which is a huge plus. Will stay at this one the next time also.
