Stayed here for 9 nights in November 2013. This is my second stay at this hotel. I note that the Agoda rating has actually improved this year. Best feature must be the fantastic and convenient location. Took the A21 from the airport to Nathan Hotel. Evergreen is just across the road and one street in from the main road. It is next to Temple street and within walking distance to all the great eateries, attractions and shopping in Kowloon.
Check in was smooth. Staff was friendly. There is always someone at the lobby to press or hold the elevator whenever I returned to the hotel. Room was as it appears online in Agoda. But I booked through the hotel website instead as it had good long stay packages. I chose the room with no view as it would be more quiet. I was ok without a view. Size of room was reasonable for the price by Hong Kong standards.
Room had 2 single beds. There is a bath tub and shower gel was provided. They also provided toothbrush and toothpaste, a comb, a bar of soap and shower caps. Perhaps it would be even better if they provided cotton buds and a shaver.
TV channels included the local stations and a few cable networks. I did not watch much as I was out most of the time.
Booked the package with internet access and breakfast. Buffet breakfast itself was simple and functional. Some might complain that they served the same things everyday. However, as far as I am concerned. It was adequate and functional. Toast, cornflakes, western comprises sausage, ham, boiled eggs, baked beans and various types of premixed mixed vegetables and salads. There is also noodles and plain porridge.
I wish to make mention of the staff that serve at the cafe in the morning. The male waiter was very friendly and helpful. He topped up the food regularly, maintained the cleanliness, and was helpful to the guests.
Additonal plus points include use of self service laundry service on the 4th floor as well as the business centre corner with computer etc on every floor. By the way, the lift goes up only to the 3rd floor. So do ask for a room on the lower floors if you have difficulties negotiating stairs.
There is a 7Eleven right next to the hotel and Wellcome supermarket is also just round the corner.
One bad thing was that the internet access did not work for the last 2 days of my stay.
It had worked well for the majority of my stay. I called the reception twice over the 2 days and was told they will send someone. The first time someone came but could not solve the problem. Instead, he was able to offer me an alternative wifi network access. That was fine initially but the next day, which was the day before my check out, even that access gave problems. This time no one was sent to help with the problem. This was the only bad thing I experienced during my stay.
Overall, a relatively good stay for the price. Works well for business trips as well as shopping and sight seeing, suitable for families too. There is no gym or pool in this hotel.
