Evergreen Laurel Hotel
Ranked #28 of 87 Hotels in George Town
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Hotel located at sea front. Close proximity to restaurants and hawker center nearby. Spacious room with good sea view, traditional settings and furniture; welcome fruits and complimentary supply of drinks in mini bar (which was not a common practice in most hotels).

But the drain of the washing basin was a bit stuck and shower not strong enough.

On the whole, a good choice.

This hotel sits near the waterfront of Gurney Drive. The room is spacious with a king size bed in the middle. All the usual comforts of the hotel are there. But the TV reception got to be fine tune as there was grainy picture in all the channels. The WC does not have water for washing. The surrounding areas are heaven for food lovers. if one venture far enough , there is a food court selling all the local fantasy of food. There are a few shopping malls within walking distance. All in all it is quite a good place to stay!

this is a very well located hotel and on the famous gurney drive. naturally the view is that of the sea opposite the hotel. the room is clean and spacious enough. hotel restaurant staff are friendly and breakfast is good. hawker centres and shopping complexes are within walking distance but signs around the hotel warns of snatch thefts so do be careful and if possible avoid walking and take a cab. would not mind staying here again.

This hotel would have been a standout in its day but it needs a makeover. The location is great - on the waterfront and close to some excellent hawker food locations but needs some money spent on it. Once this happens it can be great again

Room Tip: If you stay hear try the hawker food near by

Clean and spacious room, walking distance (15 to 20min) to Gurney Plaza and local hawker food. Few minutes walk to the popular (I believed is popular from the crowd there) seafood restaurant Bali Hai, they also serve dim sum for breakfast.
Hotel breakfast was not that great but acceptable. Overall was a pleasant stay value for money.

Room Tip: Possible get sea view room

Spacious room with great views. Short walk to hawker food. Walking distance to Paragon @Gurney & Gurney Plaza. Great shopping malls. Helpful staff with public transport & directions. Long way from the airport.

Excellent place to stay in Penang - for business or food! Check out the Song River nearby, walk to the Northem or catch a cab to Red Square for my favourite chicken satay sticks!
The hotel is best value for money in Penang - everything you need, clean and comfortable and safe.

Room Tip: Ask for a water view
