Ginett restaurant in new G Hotel, Middle Road Singapore

Hotel G Singapore is a new hotel on Middle Road near Bugis and Dhoby Ghaut MRT stations.  Unlike conventional hotels, the grand entrance at street level is occupied by a restaurant – the Ginett Restaurant.  The lobby of the G Hotel (“a chic lifestyle hotel “) is located on level 2.
