Evergreen Hotel Hong Kong
Evergreen Hotel located in the center of Kowloon area, accesible by MTR and close to Temple street night market. The location is good — you are just steps away from the night market, the MTR station Jordan is a 5-10 minute walk away, one of the fastest way to get to Hong Kong Island. Evergreen Hotel address is at 48 Woo Sung Street, Jordan, Kowloon, Hong Kong.
We stayed at Evergreen for 2 nights in April 2010 and booked the room through the online reservation system on their website.

Evergreen Hotel Room
We booked the “No window Twin Bed Room”. The room is small, minimally decorated, a bit dim but most importantly it was clean, with, thankfully, no detectable odor, my absolute fear about windowless rooms. The double beds (a bit firm) came with two pillows each! Yay! Free wifi Internet access too. All hotels should have free wifi access. *demanding*
View from the beds — writing desk, chair, bench, small television. The room as you can see, is somewhat spartan with a 90s vibe. Its covered with oldish carpeting but thankfully again, no musty odor.
The mini bar niche beside the writing desk: cup noodles, nuts, kettle, drinking glasses, cups, saucers, sachets of tea and coffee and refrigerator
Fridge stocked with mineral water, soft drinks and beer.
Bed-side controls – switches for the lights and TV. We tried turning the knob with the music note but there was nothing on. What? No muzak to accompany my sweet dreams?! Refund! LOL kidding.
Paper thin bedroom slippers in two colors. Yes, they are literally paper thin and very slippery when used in the bathroom. Wear if you want an element of unnecessary danger in your life. ^_^
Evergreen Hotel Bathroom
The bathroom in our room is clean and well-maintained. Lighting here was kinda dim, just like in the sleeping area (if I had one complaint about this room this would be it)
According to our travel partners who stayed next door, water heater took quite some time to heat up but we had no such problem.
In the bath tub/shower area, a Lux shampoo/bath gel dispenser. All budget or mid-range hotels should have a soap dispenser instead of tiny bar soaps or mini shampoo bottles.
Toothbrush and toothpaste
Disposable razor blade
Shower gel/shampoo dispenser
Evergreen Hotel Buffet Breakfast
Buffet breakfast was included in our room rate. The spread includes: tomato based pasta, hard-boiled eggs, congee, wonton, salad, bread, cracker, jam, butter. It was alright. The furnishing at breakfast area brought me back to the late 80s. ^_^
We didn’t have high expectations about this property and the hotel did okay to cater to our basic needs. We would consider staying at Evergreen Hotel again if we were on a budget. Though it looks old (with 80s-90s furnishing to boot) it’s great value for money. The room was clean and location is convenient and, with free buffet breakfast and wifi access, we don’t have much to complain about.
