How it should be done!

Comfortable room, friendly staff, excellent breakfast
We have stayed in many Hotels of different prices in SE Asia in recent years, but The Evergreen takes top place - at a very reasonable price. Helpful friendly staff, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Large comfortable room, with soft feather pillows. Spotless bathroom with bath + easy-to-use powerful shower + good quality towels. We are familiar with Asian buffet breakfasts but have never seen such a selection. A very generous breakfast with all tastes/requirements catered for. We stayed just one night to be close to the Adventist Hospital, which was further away than expected but well worth the walk. 25-30 minutes. There are many eating options close to Hotel on Gurney Drive, including the recently opened vast Paragon Mall. Approx 10 minute walk. We were very impressed with the Hotel and will definitely stay again. Only disappointment was high price of 'Happy Hour' glass of wine.

decent hotel but far from centre

staff are friendly. rooms good value for money. clean, spacious and well maintained
Arrived and hotel only had a smoking room. Lingering smell of smoke butn staff moved us the following day. I think you get a lot of hotel for you money here though. Problem is that it is around an hour's walk to the centre of georgetown and the staff had no knowledge of buses to the centre but the hotel can arrange a cab for 20 ringgits. Which is about 5 ringgits more than a cab will charge on the street. Cabs are a bit of a rip off as NONE of them will turn the meter on. Also the hotel could do with getting decent beers in but who spends the night in the hotel bar? Not bad place and decent restaurants next door but takes a while to get to centre of georgegown.

Pleasant and up to expectations

Cleanliness, location, price
Very satisfied and pleased with the management and staff attention to detail regarding giving guests a clean environment, room and particularly the bathroom. A fresh smelling room and mould-free shower curtain and bathroom gave a very good impression and makes me want to stay here again.
