We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on a recent visit to Penang and appreciated the helpful staff of this traditional style hotel. We had a 17th floor room overlooking Georgetown(cheaper than the water front views). Our room was spacious,the bed very comfortable and the hotel had all the features like a safe,complimentary drinks in the fridge,tea and coffee... More

We took a seaview delux room for 2 nights.Location is right smack in the middle between Georgetown and the nightmarkets. To be honest, its nearer to the nightmarkets if you were to turn left after exiting the hotel. There are plentiful of nice restaurants along the way. One that I would highly recommend is the Mr Pot 24 Hours Cafeteria.... More

Decent hotel. However I was a little disappointed as was not to standard I expected of a 5 star hotel. The room was OK and comfortable though significantly smaller and less lavish than other 5 star hotels I have stayed at. The buffet breakfast was OK. Only had the buffet dinner (which was OK) once as I prefer a la... More

A friend who lives near to Evergreen Laurel in Penang suggested us to stay there and it was alright. The breakfast was good, so does the staff. The second day when I enter the coffee shop for breakfast, the receptionist remembered my room number, I feel great receiving her "selamat pagi" greetings. The only problem is the transportation service. We... More

to be honest I expect more from this hotel. Too many times I heard that EVERGREEN hotels are samples of excellence and luxury. I was totally wrong or Chairman Mr.Chung Yung Fa too far from controlling his group and business. Rooms are rather old, no renovation. Facilities like remain like in 70th .... Upon arrival I got voucher for Welcome... More

Being a 5-star hotel, I was expecting a marvelous buffet dinner (theme: Japanese and seafood). It was far worse than my expectation. There were not a lot of Japanese food, just a small section serving sashimi and sushi that were NOT FRESH. As for the seafood cuisine, there was just a counter serving grilled scallops, salmon and lobster. There were... More

I really liked the Evergreen. We stayed for a total of 7 nights in mid-April. We had a sea-view room on a non-smoking floor. The room was clean and comfortable, AC worked great. Freebie drinks were refreshed in the mini-bar daily. And breakfast was terrific. Breakfast features a Chinese bar, Japanese bar, Malaysian bar, Western bar, sandwich bar, salad and... More

Just last week, my family took a weekend trip back to my old hometown, Penang. We had an enjoyable stay at this Evergreen Laurel. This hotel may be old but it is well maintained. Location is fantastic. Just 10 mins walk to shopping and eateries around the corner. Service of the front desk staffs were commendable. To boot it all,... More

Strategically located along the busy Gurney drive just by the beach, gurney plaza is just around the corner if you're planning for shopping. And if you're up for some nice Penang hawker food, there's a hawker centre just across the street. The staffs at the front desk were helpful when I requested for a room change. They were also polite... More

My partner and I stayed to attend a wedding. From arrival, it was obvious that staff were there to serve and had the right attitude. Our room was 5 star, if not a little dated. Vouchers for free drinks and spa discounts all added to the experience. By the way, I would also recommend it for a wedding reception. The... More
