4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I enjoyed my stay here. Room was nice and wifi was good, which isn't always my experience in hotels across the world. Situated across the road from the sea, however my room didn't have a view. Breakfast was nice, omelettes were very nice, I also had a buffet dinner there which was good. So pleased they had tea/coffee making facilities... More

My dad is from Penang, so naturally he knows where to book and is usually the one who books our stay in Penang. Have been going to Evergreen for years, clean room and near proximity to town, plus the sea view has always been great for us. Never knew how friendly and likable the staffs are until I had to...

When we were checking in, we were told to provide a night's deposit when we had already paid for one night's stay as my husband used his debit card to book online. So I was trying to understand why they still needed one night's deposit for. And when i said that the process is funny. The staff at the counter... More

I stayed in this property in 2005. It was at its heights. After 10 years I returned for a short stay. I had everything that could go wrong went wrong day. Including the check-in. I reserved a non smoking with king size bed. At point of check-in I was given a smoking room. I was ok till I entered my... More

I rather like the evergreen hotel, which although has been downgraded somewhat over the last few years, still handles itself as a top-class hotel with excellent service. Their check-in desk service always manages to raise a smile no matter how tired I am on arrival. They are always speedy to solve any small difficulty and provide spacious, comfortable rooms and...

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...
