      Colonial charm meets contemporary chic! ”

      So much fun at The Edison, Penang! Truly where colonial charm meets contemporary chic. Privileged to experience other chains of Small Luxury Hotels of the World, we knew the service & hospitality would be impeccable & it was! Highlights of our stay: 1. The Mansion - A real beauty despite being more than 100 years old. We couldn’t help but google the history of Georgetown & also the Edison. Rich with heritage. 2. The Lounge - Heaven! You’ll see us here most times. The hotel does not have a restaurant or room service, but the lounge is tenfold better! You would notice that there is no electric kettle & fridge that is usually provided in the rooms and that’s because they provide all & more that you need at The Lounge. Freshly brewed coffee or tea, juices, assortment of beverages & snacks for you to refuel 24/7. Also during teatime, they offer tea, & wine, & assortment of cheese & nuts to snack on while you relax by the pool waiting for the sun to set. 3. If you do stay in & decide to order takeout you can ask their most helpful & polite staff for disposable plates & cutleries & have your food by the pool. On our 1st night it was raining non stop & we couldn’t go out to our favourite hawker stalls, so we ordered our favourite Char Kuew Tiaw thru Grab Food. 4. We were given a room downstairs which was best for us with kids. The stairs to the room upstairs can be quite steep especially for the elderly. 5. Breakfast was really basic, unlike the buffet spread that we’ve gotten used to. The Continental breakfast with eggs, bread & salad, was actually ok. An assortment of jams, juices, coffee, tea, yogurts & some fruits are also available. If you are someone who looks forward to a big breakfast during holidays (like we do) not to worry, there are many cafes & good cheap food available outside, within walking distance. Or if your a little lazy (it is your holiday!) just get your food delivered. Easy peasy! Enjoyed our short stay & hope to come back sooner than later!

      Best service!”

      My partner and I couldn't be more pleased with our stay at The Edison. The location was perfect, situated in the heart of the city with easy access to many attractions (just a stone’s throw away from The Blue Mansion) and amenities (so blessed with a 24-hour lounge filled with snacks and drinks). The room itself was comfortable, clean, and well-appointed, making for a truly relaxing stay. However, what really stood out to us was the impeccable customer service provided by Albert and Lina. From the moment we arrived, they went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and ensure that all our needs were met. They were always friendly and approachable. Their attention to detail and commitment to providing exceptional service truly made our stay memorable. Thank you, Albert and Lina, for making our stay so enjoyable!

      Excellent hotel stay with the comforts of home”

      The service was impeccable. Outstanding. Love the hotel concept of being a hotel with the comforts of home. Staying in an impressive old colonial bungalow, lovely pool though small (although pool was closed for repair works the staff went out of their way to allow me to get pics by the pool the moment the poolside repair works were ok), excellent lounge and front counter services. What I would have liked is if more services like bicycles were provided for city exploration

      Amazing”

      One of the best heritage hotel i have ever stay. I like the historical building with oldiest feel. Penang is a place that i like to come back as it is my second hometown. There are many colonial building here, it give me a lots of fond memories. Mother's day staying with my mother and family. However, the weather is extreamly hot and burning but it doesn't stop me to walk around for craving all the local foods.

      Highly recommend! ”

      We chose this hotel as it was highly recommended by friends & relatives. We loved the great hospitality that the staff has shown us especially Albert and his team who gave us good suggestions where to go for nice food. We love the lounge where we can chill and have a cup coffee with snacks. The room is clean and spacious.
