Evergreen Laurel Hotel Penang
4 out of 5

Stort rum med heltäckningsmatta som kunde vara renare. Fin utsikt från de högre våningarna. Trevlig personal. God frukostbuffe, mycket att välja på, bl. an. sushi. Lite dålig service, dom kom med extra bädd efter 3-dje upprepning (efter 6 tim). Annars fungerade det bra.

I booked 4 rooms over the new year and we had great experience and good view of the fireworks. In fact we had fireworks up close too as the club next door shot some right at our windows. Beds were comfortable and staff were accommodating. Breakfast spread was good and ample. It is some distance, about 10 min brisk walk to nearby shopping mall, Gurney Plaza.

If you like the sea, a good place to rest and walk around. Location is not so good as ammenities are limited. Staff services are extremely slow.

Overall, this is a good hotel and most aspects are satisfactory yet it never really exude upon us that it is a 5-star hotel. However, the room rates are probably on the lower end of most 5-star hotels. The room was spacious, clean and well kept. We got a deluxe sea-view room so the view was not too bad. Apart from the lack of toiletries in the bath room, some faltering room lighting (which were rectified after informing the front desk) and a couple of shoddy power points, there were nothing else to complain about really. There is free internet in the rooms, but strangely it is still provided thru an Ethernet cable, considering the multitude of mobile devices using Wi-Fi that people carry nowadays. Still, it saves you from having to pay for internet access. The breakfast spread is rather well-thought of and varied. The menu is changed daily, for the most parts at least, and this is a welcomed departure from your other run-of-the-mill repetitive affair that you might get in most other hotels. And if that does not satisfy you, being in Penang, you are never short of any options for good food. The hotel is situated on Gurney Drive, so there are plenty of restaurants, eateries, hawker stalls, cafes, pubs and even a shopping mall with cinema…all within walking distance. With the abundance of various hotel accommodations available in Penang, this hotel wouldn’t have been on the top of my list if it were not for some specific reasons. Although it is alright for short stays, I’m sure you would be able to find better deals if you shop around. That being said, as I mentioned earlier, there was nothing to complain about it really.

the first thing hit me is wow this hotel far from georgetown (which is kind of capital of penang). also need to walk 2 blocks to get a bus. but if you want to be close to water (not beach) then this one is good. dont take taxi from hotel they charge more, just walk outside hotel 10 steps then you can get RM10 cheaper for taxi to airport for example. no wifi in the room! but has free on lobby which is quite fast, BUT at night, a lot mosquitoes on lobby. overall, ok but i want to try others hotel if comeback to penang. concierge doesnt have enough knowledge. asked about how to go to kekloksi temple or batu feringgi and he said need to go to komtar first but actually not! just walk to bus stops 2 blocks away and take bus from there because the hotel is between komtar and batu feringgi.

We left our pants attached with a branded leather belt inside the closet upon check-out. We only realised it a few hours later that prompted us to call the Housekeeping of the hotel. We were caught by surprise when we were told that they only found the pants WITHOUT the belt. We made three continuous calls within a few hours on the same day hoping that the hotel could investigate further. Interestingly, that Duty Manager who spoken to me mentioned that the room we used to stay was NOT occupied since we check-out that afternoon. We even wrote to General Manager of the Hotel to alert him on this matter...but unfortunately the belt was nowhere to be found. The incident led to the ruin of our enjoyable weekend stay at this so-called 5 star international chain hotel.

Sadly, my booking didn't turn out too well. I booked for 3 adults but they decided to add additional charges when I arrived. Along with any other amenities used will be charged as per additional person. Why would you let me book for three only to charge me more when I get there? hmm... Otherwise, decent view, some 10 - 15 mins drive away from the city centre.

Hotel is near eateries - but far from tourist spots. Penang should be more accesible on foot as the taxi price haggling is a hassle.

The hotel located at the other end of Gurney Drive, had an exhausting walk to the plaza and hawker food. Receptionist not very helpful in providing information.Doormen were however much more friendly and helpful.Had a short blackout at the hotel which lasted 45 minutes, I was surprised as I had never expected that this hotel did not even have a standby generator, many room guest were left in a lurch not knowing what was happening. Total pitch dark in the rooms.

Location is great! Beautiful sea view. Modern decoration, clean room. Its just the shows on television is shown is quite disappointing. Should have more choices.. Understanding that fridge drinks shall be charge, but its just a pack of coffee or a pack of tea is also charged and quite expensive if you want to compared to what you bought from the supermarket or 7eleven.. But, overall everything is good! 20mins walk from the shopping mall. Theres starbucks or other shops beside the hotel.. I will go there again!

I rated good to allow room for improvement. Excellent location with famous restaurants like seafood, Bah Kut Teh, Tim Sum, Western with delicious desserts. Hawker food like prawn noodle & Loh bah are also very good. About 15 minutes walk to Gurney Plaza & Hawker Centre with many varieties of food. It would be excellent if hotel can provide free shuttle service to Gurney plaza. Walking distance to Burmese & Thai temple. Excellent seaview. Highly recommended.

The room & pillow is ok but i thought the room & hotel is too dim. Maybe, a choice of white light could have been install for reading purposes. The Yellow light is too dim to read.
