We booked this hotel because we were not able to book the other hotels in the area recommended by my colleague from Malaysia. The hotel is good for the price we paid. Location: It's a waterfront hotel. The walk to the two big shopping malls with movie theater and restaurants is about 15 min, and about 20 min to the... More

The hotel is located along the beach but since it's on the other side of the road, there is no beach front. It is advisable to pay a little more to get a sea-view room rather than a one with the city view. From our room we had a good view of the sea, the swimming pool as well as... More

Hotel in strategic location and was very clean. But I found the breakfast to be measly and not much to be had. When I first checked in, I found certain items in the room to be missing like tissues and toilet paper . When I requested the room be cleaned, they took away the wet towels and left us without...

I've occupied rooms 618-9 on 19-22 July 2015. For visitors, should insist on rpoms with sea view instead of city view.. I'm amazed that there is always a vacant parking lot, in front of hotel foyer, brightly lit, with attentive staff, no matter what time is it. Thumbs up to Evergreen Laurel. Restaurant serves Japanese, Western and local cuisines for... More

The overall design of the Hotel is not new, quit the feel of 80's Hotel. We got the rooms on the 8th floor, the room were seaview, so the large window with the view were spectacular, only downside is the heat from them during the day. You wont feel cool even with the AC working high. A welcome Fruits and... More

We decided to spend a night at Evergreen just to get away and found excellent value at the Evergreen. It has all the Gurney Drive convenience of shopping. But with food options aplenty nearby, we opted to dine out instead. Car park is free and staff are pleasant

Reasonable good place to stay. Good breakfast spread. Nice and friendly staff.Walking distance for shopping ppl who love brands. 10-15mins walk for the famous road side food street. Location suitable for relaxing and foodie type ppl, however if seeking for more of beach or water adventure place, hotels near Batu Firangi would be good. Can walk to the reclining Buddha... More

Very cute five-star Taiwanese-owned hotel. Impeccable service. Rooms have old furniture but it's nice. Extremely large bathrooms. Great bed. No views from the windows. tiny spa and gym in basement. No pool. Stayed 3 nights in April and would return.

Quite decent hotel. Comfortable rooms, clean, and spacious. Fast check in process. The room card is very sensitive, so don put together with your mobile phone as it will not detectable by the door lock. It takes about 20 minutes to walk to Gurney Plaza, there are a lot of nice food stall along the way though.
