Aircon was poor. They showed me 2 other rooms....all the same. Manager said whole hotel run on a single chiller!!!! Ridiculous. First night on my own payment as holiday. Second night as company for work. I paid less for my room with seaview than company paid for city view. Ridiculous. And then when I asked to remain in the same... More

I've being in this hotel several times attending local customers. Great place to do bussiness, all facilities are fine, location is very convenient and food is deliciuos. Highly recommended. Shuttle goes everymorning to industrial zone so work can be done easily. Customer service is great, you'll feel like being with friend in the other side of the world.

We had a lovely stay at the Evergreen Laurel. Our room was comfortable and clean. There were complimentary drinks in the fridge and some apples in a bowl and they were replenished each day which was a really nice touch. The housekeeping staff were friendly and we were very happy with the service each day. The only issue was that... More

I only stayed one night for business however was disappointed about the room as it was very old and partially dirty (e.g. Bathroom floor and carpet). The bed was not at all comfortable and the power supply not sufficient. Management should consider overall renovation - service was not really on the level you expect a business hotel to be. Opening... More

Great hotel along Gurney Dr. For those looking for hotel on a budget, this is it. This is the good and bad : Good - 1) Great value for money 2) For those families, 2 adults, and 2 children in 1 room, this is it. 3) Nice breakfast spread 4) Great scenic view of the Straits of Malacca (med floor...

We had a room with a sea view so thats really nice. The room is spaceous and clean. The building itself is quite a bit old compared to the nearby hotels. The location is good if you like walking a lot like us. You can get to georgetown center and batu ferringhi from a bus stop 5-10mins walk from the... More

我們入住的是面海的房間,景色優美。 因為是老飯店所以房間的空間很大,並且算是清潔乾淨。氣氛典雅但說不上太豪華。 它的地理位置離市中心不會太遠,但因為在海邊所以可以眺望海景。建議選擇面海高樓房。 We stay in Seaview room this time, the view is quite nice and peaceful. The hotel is old so that the space is big. It is classical but not luxury. The location is not far from city center,and because it is beside the beach so it have a good Seaview. We recommend to choose high floor and... More

The breakfast leaves much to be desired. Almost half the options were empty and not replenished. Decent location close to some malls and attractions. Front desk was not particularly friendly nor accommodating.
