I stayed in this hotel during a conference organised by a university with my family. The children enjoyed the stay there. It is located along Gurney Drive and there are many restaurants for us to choose from within walking distance. The hotel's food has a great variety and I think the organisers made a good choice of having their conference... More

The Hotel location is well situated @ Gurney Drive, there's plenty of place for dinner within walking distance, however, places for breakfast & lunch are quite limited unless you drive / rent a cycle. There's stretch of pubs / bars nearby to chill out at night. Penang Island is quite small, so if you are active you could just walk... More

It's slightly less convenient compared to G Hotel but I really enjoyed the fresh room and quiet environment. It's about 10 minutes walk from G Hotel and almost half of G Hotel pricing. With close to SGD 100 difference per night, I will take a walk or the taxi at MYR 15 per trip if you do heavy shopping at... More

The staffs who at the receptionist counter were not so friendly, very slow in the process of check in and not helpful. As we have extended our stays with another booking, then we informed them during the time we check in as to avoid any room's transfer later. They take quite a long time to update our stays in the...

This hotel was clean and very comfortable! The brekkie was good (despite missing out second morning) ... Lovely hot tub! It's huge plus you have the choice of a hot tub and a cold tub! We also took the time to chill in the sauna and steam room too! Only issue would be it's not that close to the centre... More

Great Hotel with nice amenities. Front office was quiet informative on all aspects from check-in to other details in and around. Room facilities were quiet good and also restaurant was quiet decent. Vegetarian food was concern which was mainly available on request. We found taxi service from hotel also at par with normal rates which was good. Distance from Airport... More

it's definitely old hotel. but it doesn't have the old musky smell. the sea view wasn't bad and a short walk will brings you to the mall and about 15minutes walk to the local night market. Breakfast is good and fulling. Complimentary Wifi, Fruits and Drinks (1 can of Coke, 1 can of Green Tea, 1 Can of soya bean... More

Although neither beach nor town, Gurney Drive is as good a base as any for those on business or pleasure. The Evergreen is a tad dated but personally I find the lack of Phillipe Stark design doo-daddery a plus point. What this hotel does have is good service, a decent breakfast and is spotlessly clean. Complimentary fruit and soft drinks... More
