        wonderful place in Georgetown”

        We spent 3 nights in this wonderful hotel and was a pity to leave at the end of our stay. The staff is just MAGNIFICENT every think you need, just ask they and you'll get answers and solutions. The courtesy of they and the smiling we will never forget. The hotel's rooms are big, clean and comfortable, the picture you see on the agoda page show you the reality,the surrounding area secure and with different restaurants and sightseeing place. About food in the hotel...well you can eat something 24 hours a day!!! The breakfast is excellent, and all the rest of the day you have access at the breakfast room where you can find all the time different kind of food like biscuits, fruits, chips....and of course you get the possibility to have also drinks, like the afternoon tea( between 3pm and pm) or white/red wine to enjoy a small aperitif after 6 pm . We dream to be back in Georgetown in the future to meet again the nice staff and enjoy a little bit more the city with all is charm

        THIS GEM WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF OUR VISIT TO GEORGETOWN”

        When I booked the Edison I read many reviews that attested to the staff's warmth and hospitality. It's true, everyone is so attentive and incredibly helpful. 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.

        Birthday Holiday ”

        Before I begin, I would like to thank Mr. Ivan and Mr. Albert! People like you are the assets of the hotel management. The warm welcome, friendliness has given us the best comfort in the hotel. The hotel was beautiful and the service were top notch. Not forgetting the location of the hotel is very much strategic to most places. I was there to celebrate my birthday and it was so kind enough of the hotel to surprise myself and husband a birthday cake. They have a 24 hour lounge filled with juices, coffee, tea, hot water, biscuits and local tidbits. The ambience is beautiful and gives you historic feeling looking at the design and architecture of the building. I would suggest this hotel for those who wants to relax and enjoy a calm holiday and to visit around Georgetown.

        An Awesome Experience”

        From the moment we drove into the hotel premises, we were wow-ed by the attentive service of their staff who came over to our car to collect of luggage. The staff was very knowledgeable on the history of the building as well as the various places to eat. Our whole stay was very personalized as the staff addressed us by our names and customized to our needs. Ivan the hotel manager was also very helpful and informative about the places of interest in Penang. There is a lounge area which caters to our simple breakfast, coffee, juices and snacks. All the staff were very hospitable and offered us a customized experience and service. Rooms are very clean and the beds are comfortable to sleep in. All in all, it was a beautiful stay and an awesome experience at the colonial Edison hotel. We would definitely come back

        Wonderful Rooms, Amazing Architecture & Great Service”

        The place comes with free self service drinks & snacks from the kitchen (coffee, tea, soft drinks, fruit juices), and also they have a very nice pool at the side of the building. The hotel has a beautiful colonial mansion architecture, so do take lots of pictures when you arrive. The Manager is really attentive to our requests and he even offered us free late checkout (just by a couple of hours), since we couldn't arrive earlier on the day before, so we just chilled by the pool with our drinks! The rooms are really comfortable, with all the room facilities provided. Highly recommended! It's at the northwest side of Georgetown and hotel parking is available.

        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.

        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.

        Perfect Hotel! ”

        This was an amazing hotel and I am so pleased we chose it! The service is impeccable - everyone was kind and incredibly attentive to small details such as remembering our morning coffee orders each day. The rooms are comfy, clean and well decorated. The snack area and wine in the evenings is such a great touch! The building is old and historic, but tastefully updated. It was easy walking distance everywhere we wanted to visit. I would happily stay here again - thank you for a wonderful vacation for our family!

        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

        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.

        Is Your 2nd Home”

        Never ever felt a hotel stay can be as comfortable as your own home. A nostalgic standalone mansion with private parking gives us a feel like going back to your grandparent's house with a warm friendly butler (aka hotel staff) that greets you each time whenever you are back. Complimentary wine for every day with a choice of red or white to the guest. Also, an unlimited complimentary local snacks & drinks to enjoy in the common pantry area at any time of the day. We miss it every now and then. =)

        Amazing!”

        I can't sing their praises enough. Despite the kitchen not being open yet the service and warm welcome we received made us not care in the slightest. The hotel itself is just stunning, that colonial charm had us in love with The Edison. There is a 24 hour room which has great teas coffees and snacks which the kids adored. We ordered grab food and also bought some cheeses and meats which the staff plated up beautifully. Anything we needed which was possible was given. Special thanks to Tamil and Ivan, lovely warm and kind hosts. I shall definitely be back and bringing my parents.

        I love our stay at Edison. The hotel is beautiful and the staff worked very hard to make sure we had a comfortable stay. As a boutique hotel, Edison may not have as many amenities as a full sized hotel but the space design is so thoughtful. I love that they keep things simple and execute them perfectly. Thanks for the enjoyable and comfortable stay!

        Fantastic unless you are an early and light sleeper”

        The location is good. Room is large and is very comfortable. Hospitality from staff is amazing. One can have coffee and tea for the entire day, with alcohol serve between 6-7pm daily. The only downside is the noise from the open air karaoke from the hawker center which located directly opposite Edison. The singing and music won’t stop until midnight, daily.

        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!

        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

        Michelle leads a great team that makes the stay a great and pleasant experience. The live band across the street makes it noisy before midnight. Little imperfections are more than made up by the great effort put in by the staff to make you feel at home and comfortable. Will stay again.

        The service is wonderful, very personal. The check in experience was seamless, and they gave a tour of the hotel building once we checked in. The hotel owner is also there everyday, greeting all the guests during breakfast and happy hour. The location is great, in the center of Georgetown. The happy hours from 6-7PM was also a good addition to the stay. We love the place and would definitely stay there again, and recommend anyone to stay there too.
