beautiful hotel with the most attentive and charming staff”
Everything about the Edison is perfect - central location, effortlessly beautiful tasteful design, warm and attentive staff. We had the most wonderful stay and are already planning to return to Penang and stay at the Edison again.
Staffs are excellent and shows lots of care! Probably only Shangri-La Rasa Sayang or E&O can rival their hospitality. Excellent! As for the room, it is great too! However, for gym freaks, be ready to receive none of it....chuckle!!! Other than that, it is all good and I will come back again!
Everything is perfect”
Everything is perfect. It’s 100% worth what you had paid for. Nothing to complain. All hotel staff are presenting amazing service. Next time gonna stay at this hotel when I visit Penang again.
My Favorite in Penang”
Of all the many hotels i have stayed at on Penang this is definitely my favorite. great staff, beautiful hotel and great location. Would absolutely recommend this hotel.
BEST HOTEL EVER!”
I have travelled many, many countries and spent more time in hotels than I have done at my own home. The Edison Georgetown is hands down the best hotel I have ever stayed at. Amazing staff - feels like you're staying with a family, not at an impersonal hotel. Can't wait to go back to Penang just to stay at the Edison!
Quality never change...”
It was my second time of staying and the friendliness of the staffs and quality of everything they offered remain at high standard. The wine tasting, free snacks and tea time are the icing to the cream. If I would have to point out one thing for improvement, it will be the noise isolation from the hawker center opposite the hotel. At time, it can be annoyed especially on the lower floor and front room. If they can find ways to add shield to filter / minimise the noise, it would be excellent.
Nice boutique hotel”
Beautiful hotel in an old building, no elevator but they help with the luggage. the room is so nice, the pool is small. But we love the lounge, they serve 24 hour snacks and their friendly service. The breakfast selection is limited but quite decent. One thing to note; we had our friend waiting for taxi at their lounge and had a cup of drink and chips that we share. Later on they told us they need to charge for my friend via phone. We don’t mind the charge, it’s just the way they handle it, we think it would be nicer if they told us on the spot face-to-face.
Hotel is located conveniently in the heart of Georgetown, it’s very affordable to grab to most places from hotel. Place is clean and newly refurbished. What’s most commendable is the service of the staffs, all of them are extremely polite and helpful.
From the Time we check in Till the Time we Checked Out . The Service Level is Fantastic .,”
The Hotel itself is a beauty with a good mix of the old and modern . The Staff in the Hotel is Exceptional with their Knowledge of Recommendations on food and places and always with such patience and excellent service standards . Love the Pre-Dinner Wine Discovery such a Novel Idea .
Feels like home : an enjoyable stay!”
An avid solo traveler myself, I have always worried about the selection of accommodation at an unfamiliar place. I was taken aback by how gracious the front desk and everyone who is working at The Edison Georgetown. From taking care of my late-night snacks to proactive employees , making sure my photographs are perfectly taken! (I couldn't remember the name of the employee who took my photos but I greatly appreciate his gesture), there is no doubt I have made the right choice! And not to mention the nostalgic experience was awe-inspiring - given the breathtaking Peranakan architecture design and a clever choice of delightful kuehs for tea breaks, I had the most memorable stay in Penang. Thank you 'The Edison Georgetown' for an amazing hospitality and generosity! (=
Celebrated my 30th Birthday, such a treat!”
Stayed two nights at the Edison for my birthday, stunning period property with modern facilities. There's a free snack bar 24/7 which is an awesome perk and the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed the free cheese and wine hour. Breakfast is simple, but excellent quality and the pool area is quite basic for a luxury hotel, but overall a very pleasant stay. Thank you for making my birthday special.
One of the best hotel I have stayed ”
Impeccable service with a personal touch. Special credit to Michelle and Carl for going the extra mile to assist with the Grab car service and fast food ordering. I would definitely return to stay and recommend the hotel to my friends.
Real hospitality experience”
Most awesome hotel experience I had in a long time! Traditional architecture and modern amenities. The staff is lovely, very attentive to details, excellent service & recommendations! The complimentary happy hour made us feel like home. We'll come back!
Such a special place! ”
I stayed here with my young children and parents. The hotel is outstanding. Beautifully decorated and the staff could not do enough for us. It is close to the street art and lots of sights. Across the road there is an abundance of food stalls and live music. The hotel has huge, very clean, comfortable rooms with en suite. The pool area is small but very pretty. The hotel offers inclusive breakfast and snacks/ drinks all day long. Perfect for the little ones and so easy. There is also a wine and cheese hour which was very gratefully received and beautifully orchestrated. We will be coming here again, we really enjoyed our stay.
Great Hotel with fantastic Staff”
Great value hotel with large rooms and genuinely helpful and friendly staff. Breakfast was simple but more than adequate and the complimentary soft drinks and snacks in the dining room 24/7 was a really nice touch as well as the cheese and wine hour between 6 and 7pm.
Nice hotel, friendly staff”
Extremely friendly staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcomed and excellent location. Free wine and cheese in the evening. Free snacks all day. Only area for development would be to upgrade the WiFi infrastructure.
Superb staff and fantastic location”
My title says it all. Don't stay here if you want a bland characterless modern hotel chain. The Edison is a one off. The building is full of history and character. The staff could not do more to make your stay enjoyable and the location in the heart of George Town is ideal for exploring the UNESCO site. Without doubt our stay was one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had.
Excellent Hospitality in the heart of Georgeotown”
My fiancé had a wonderful stay at The Edison. All thr staff were so friendly and so attentive to our needs. We had our pre-wedding photoshoot there and the photos turned out really lovely in this quaint hotel. Will be back again.
I stayed at room no 107. Worth room, I think. it next service room., Which is use all day.The door make a loud noise every time it close . I had complained and ask them to gentle close the door. But it still happened.
