First time at the hotel, generally a average hotel. Room size are good enough and the housekeeping are doing a good job. Location are good as located to near by attraction and food eateries. The only set back if you need some ice you have to go to selected floors and is located is room(pantry). Generally is worth with the... More

We stayed 4 nights at the hotel recently from the 6-10 Jan 2015. We upgraded our room to the sea view room. Got the room on the 12th Floor, room number 1207. Very spacious room, a great bed. Toilet was very clean. Nothing to complain about unlike previous reviews by travellers. Even the alarm clock is an antique which i... More

This hotel is within walking distance (around 10min) to the 2 malls - Gurney Plaza and Gurney Paragon. You can find some small local restaurants outside the hotel for food if you don't want to walk too far. However, if you plan to go to the heritage area often, you will need to take a cab and I think it... More

This old-fashioned hotel on Gurney Drive is showing its age and the service was unsatisfactory for a hotel claiming to be 5 stars on its website. Rooms were generally comfortable but have old furniture, crooked fittings, carpet stains, wall marks, non-working powerpoints and limited control of the air conditioning. But the bedding and view were good, there was a large... More

We spent our Christmas break with my family at this hotel. The rooms very clean, well maintained and stocked with the relevant toiletries. The gym, spa, swimming pool facilities was excellent and again very well maintained. Friendly staff all around. Location is convenient, excellent restaurants around the vicinity. The downside during our holidays was that we were in a smoking... More

We had a two night stay at the Evergreen Laurel Hotel in Penang as part of a four day visit to the island from Jakarta. The location has a great view of the sea front, and although it is rather far from Georgetown it is a reasonably easy walk to the big Gurney Plaza. The staff were pleasant and made... More

This Hotel is tired but well maintain and it is clean. Room is spacious enough with complimentary soft drinks in mini bar. Bed and pillow is very comfy. Other than that, if u are looking for beach, places of interest and near the malls etc, go elsewhere. We were celebrating my hubby and my baby birthday in Penang. I have... More

My stay at the Evergreen was really quite nice. The decor is good, the place is very clean, the staff were great. The bed was comfortable and I got some decent sleep. The room was really quite and the view was great, especially at night overlooking the city. There are a couple of things to be aware of though, I... More

Evergreen Laurel have friendly staff, but it is one of those Asian hotels that flatters itself. The location on Gurney is adjacent to some bargain and excellent local eating places - fresh and tasty. The two I tried were Song River and Restaurant 77[Curry Fish Head] and both were excellent if you like eating local. The walk on the sea... More
