        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! (=

        The perfect hotel with a perfect team!”

        We stayed at The Edison for four days and three nights in January and had an awesome experience. The hotel is stunningly beautiful and perfectly restored. It has the old world charm, with the modern day conveniences and luxury you’d expect of a 5-star hotel. The hotel itself is well worth the money, but what makes this the perfect experience is the team at the hotel. They made us feel like this was our house and we’re all part of the family. I’d like to recognize the extraordinary service we received from Sharmin, Sophia, Connie, Li Ni, Jerome, Suet Chin, and Rina. The Edison goes to the top of my list alongside The Strand in Yangon, the Ritz Carlton Mandapa Reserve in Ubud, Heritance Kandalama, and the Arabella on Boossa in Galle. The location is ideal for exploring Georgetown, with Chulia Street around the corner and must-visit locations like the Blue Mansion right across the street. I can’t imagine a better experience in Penang than The Edison.

        Awesome service, perfect location”

        The Edison is the hotel to stay while you are in Georgetown. This is a restored colonial building with 90% of the building is maintain from its original state. The staffs are super friendly and knowledgeable, courteous and always ready to be at your service. Hotel compound is not as big but the areas are comfortable and relaxing. There is a lap pool and a lounge for all day beverage (coffee tea, snacks, juices and sodas). I can’t demand for anything else. It is located away from the hustle bustle of Georgetown yet is accessible to many street food, cafe, wall arts and other touristy attractions. Kudos to Jessica, Connie, Fabianne, Ivan and the rest of the team. The housekeeper did an excellent job to maintain the covid-19 SOP. Highly recommend The Edison to anyone who visits Penang. After all, they are part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the world

        A lovely colonial relic boutique hotel”

        The Edison Hotel is a tastefully renovated, heritage listed colonial era residence in the heart of Georgetown. This boutique hotel is comfortable and has good facilities including a lap pool, a guests lounge and happy hour from 6 - 7 pm. The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful making this a very welcoming and comfortable place to stay in the heart of vibrant Penang. The hotel is well situated within walking distance of bars, cafes, restaurants of Georgetown. I would recommend the Edison to business travelers, couples and families. A jewel in the heart of Penang.

Nothing is too much to ask of a staff member. The hotel overflows with every comfort too, the central lounge offers free afternoon teas, happy hour drinks and suppers. All on the house. The rooms are lovely too although simple. They are clean with high ceilings and the vanity products are to die for. Much more impressive than many 5 star hotels I've stayed in in the past. We loved the Edison so much that we cancelled the best hotel in town to return here before our flight home. We were welcomed back with open arms and open hearts. Staff even provided us with a small chocolate cake to mark our anniversary. We will always return here. It's position is central, while not fancy, it is personal and caring. It feels like home.

        Lovely colonial stay!”

        The Edison was a delight set in the centre of George Town. Although not ideal for a beach holiday it was perfectly placed for us to sample and experience the delights of Penang and Malaysia. The staff at the hotel were superb and could not do enough for you. They were so attentive and always smiling and cheery. It was a lovely holiday made memorable by the people and surroundings.

        Lovely Boutique Hotel”

        Stayed for seven nights in November. Hotel is immaculate and our room was spacious and comfortable. Ideal location as a base for visiting historic Georgetown sights, markets and for a great variety of restaurants in the locality. Afternoon tea and Happy Hour at the hotel were lovely touches and much appreciated. Most of all, Ivan and his team are well organised, committed to their guests and consistently went out of their way to make us feel welcome. We will certainly stay at the Edison again if we visit Penang in the future

        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.

        We had a great time staying over in The Edison Georgetown. The experience was pleasant and the staff were all very friendly. The service provided was exceptionally good. Location was good and recommendations of food were of walking distances. My favorite was the snack bar in the lounge - whereby they provided childhood snacks. The room was spacious and clean. Overall we had an enjoyable time spent in Penang and in The Edison. Thank you! :)

        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!

        Fantastic Location and Great Service”

        Loved staying here at The Edison for our Mum and Daughter trip to Penang. Thought I would give mum a treat by staying at this lovely hotel, and I was not disappointed. She was most thrilled with the 24 hour lounge and great customer service from all the staff. We stayed in the Deluxe room which had ample space and I did very loved imagining what it would have been like living in this mansion back in the olden days. The only negative I have is that the room we had was next to the lounge (and it can get a bit noisy with people going in and out of the room). That and the noise coming from the restaurant/karaoke place across the road. I know they have no control over the noise level (where you can hear really loud singing until 11pm-12am), and the hotel does provide ear plugs for light sleepers.

We are also delighted to hear that you experienced first-hand The Edison Experience with our personalised service and all-inclusive offerings at The Lounge.

        A warm welcome, unforgettable service, a classy hotel an absolute diamond in Georgetown ”

        From the moment we pulled in to The Edison, it was pure joy. The building is stunning and as we were greeted by name at reception (and just in time for wine and cheese hour!) we knew that the Edison was all we were expecting and more. The hotel is spotless, grand and immaculate. The rooms are large and airy. Every member of staff was incredibly professional, friendly and helpful. The home from home and our kitchen is your kitchen approach, as well as the mentioned wine and cheese hour were really lovely touches. The style of the building means it can be noisy at times but this was never at ungodly hours and ear plugs were kindly provided. Thank you to the great team at The Edison.

        Home away from home in Penang”

        We stayed for two nights at the Edison. It was a charming hotel housed in a renovated heritage mansion. While the building was lovingly restored to its former glory, the present owner did it with a contemporary touch that brought the building to the 21st century . The room was well appointed and cozy. We especially love the lounge where we can relax with access to drinks and nibbles 24/7. It made the experince of staying there truly felt like home. The afternoon tea and pre-dinner drinks added to the delightful experience. The staff, while not very polished, were genuinely friendly and helpful. Charles the manager was also very helpful and provided us with recommendation of places to eat and visit. Overall we had a very memorable stay at the Edison.

        Best Hotel I Have Ever Stayed”

        The entire experience of staying at The Edison was unforgettable! The hotel building and rooms are beautiful and the extras that the hotel provides such as wine and cheese in the evenings and a 24 hour pantry make for a well-looked after stay. The highlight of staying at The Edison has to be the staff who all go above and beyond. They take time to get to know everyone, even down to how you take your coffee. Particular mention to Sophia, Connie and Ivan for looking after us so well. Thank you for this wonderful experience!

        I normally don't write reviews, but since stepping into the Edison, the staff made us feel at home with ace recommendations on where to stuff our bellies, drink our fill and take in the sights. The rooms were spacious and extremely clean with great amenities. Coffee machines were not only in our rooms but also in the lounge and common areas. Breakfast was great and the added local snacks throughout the day definitely made me reminisce. The only downside is that if you stay near the front of the property, you might be faced with the music from the beer garden. So do ask for a room at the back! :) Overall, great stay would definitely visit again!

        The Edison is a nice quaint colonial building. It is beautifully furnished. If you have knee problems or any difficulty manoevuring flight of steep steps, then it is definitely not the place for you. I must compliment the staff at the reception for being very courteous and helpful. Special mention must go to this young lad from Belgium ( sorry that I did not get his name.) who works there. He is ever so cheerful, greeting us with his widest smile every day. I must say the tea snacks are a great draw, esp the kuehs. The wine session is attractive too, allowing us to sit back and relax. The room I had is upstairs right behind, so I do not get the noise from the food court just directly opposit the Edison. But you will definitely suffer the brunt of the karaoke singing from the food court if you have a room downstairs and right in front. The location of the Edison is fantastic, within walking distance to many tourist attractions.
