Perhaps a little tired but good service, good breakfast, some free items in the mini bar, great wifi.
Room was clean and comfy. Room service was prompt. Check in - check out smooth.
Breakfast very good compared to Malaysian standard.

Stayed here again after many years. Room is spacious, very clean and comfortable. Not as modern as the newer hotels but a comfortable stay nevertheless. Great value for money. Food used to be very good but didn't get to try their F&B outlets this time.

Evergreen Laurel calls itself a 5 star hotel.At best, Evergeen is a 4-star hotel. Rooms are pretty much similar in ambiance to Holiday Inn. I like it because of its location. Across the street is the ocean itself. Sidewalks are jogging areas. 5-minute walk to 24hrs hawkers stalls. Most guests during the week are foreign expats-Americans,Japanese, Chinese. Tourist flock-in Friday evenings.
Food in lobby restaurant will keep you coming for a maximum of 2 days only. Menu is hardly changed.

We broke our trip to Penang up into three hotels: first the G-Hotel, then the Rasa Sayang Resort, concluding with one night here. This place was a good value for the price. Actually, a very good price. A clean room and a good breakfast buffet. I would stay here again.

Have been staying in this hotel for more than 10 years. Old but clean and well maintained. Location is good. Deluxe room is sea facing with good view. A short walk from the hotel are all the hawker stalls.

Room Tip: Get a deluxe room - sea facing.

The hotel location is good on Gurney drive. Turn left out of the hotel and take a pleasant 15-20 min walk to the bustling hawker stalls at night, passing the modern shopping complex of Gurney Plaza. Rooms 1-15 on each floor face the sea whilst 14-28 face the city and hills. Rooms are spacious and clean and sleep quality is very good as are the room amenities. Daily room servicing was a bit hit and miss, some days tea and coffee items are replenished some days not. Wifi is free in rooms with entry of an individual guest code that the hotel provides. Similarly, free Internet is also available in the business centre on the ground floor.
Restaurant staff at breakfast rated poorly, perhaps inexperienced. The guy in green gave the impression that guests were an intrusion and he obviously had more important things to do. Good morning smiles at breakfast were scarce. A telephone message for me whilst I was having breakfast, (the only European in the breakfast area at the time) was not delivered and despite the caller providing a description, was told I was not there.
On the definite plus side however, the concierge employees led by Malik Harwani, and Sue on the tour desk provided outstanding customer service as did Rain at reception. All of these people should be properly commended, they are most efficient and most pleasant. I would stay at the Evergreen again, it is a good hotel, I would provide the restaurant folks with some customer service training.
