A charming place to stay. Some of the rennovation looks a bit cheap but overall, the effect is impressive. Rooms are very big. Not a lot to complain about. Stay if you want change from usual offerings.

Stayed: April 2018, traveled as a couple

Not much more can be said other than... ‘absolutely brilliant!’

Rooms are modern and beautiful. The hotel has a distinct colonial feel. Having stayed in the E&O just around the corner (literally), I can say that the Edison is very much on par (if not actually better). Guests are treated to a simple yet filling breakfast; light but thoughtful afternoon snacks; and wait for it... 1 glorious hour of free-flow wines.

Very much a sleek hotel in the clean and crisp Singaporean style, this hotel will not disappoint! Enjoy!

Stayed: March 2018, traveled with family

Short break at The Edison. Excellent hotel - stunning building. Great location. All the staff were friendly and helpful and happy to help provide information or make bookings/ reservations. Lovely areas for breakfast and wine/ snacks late afternoon (a real treat). George Town itself is a great place to spend a few days and just walk around. Lots to see (including the street art) and lots to do. Highly recomment both The Edison and George Town.

Excellent service, comfortable, quiet place to stay. Good location. Highly recommended if you are not on a budget for accommodation. Walking distance to surrounding good food and heritage places. Definitely will stay again for the next visit to Penang.

We spent two nights at The Edison Penang in Sep 2017. This is an old mansion that has been tastefully refurbished. The bedroom and bathroom are clean and spacious. The Edison provides simple but good breakfast, afternoon tea (Peranakan Nonya Kuehs and Indian snacks were served during our stay) and complimentary wines in the early evenings. Great job Ivan, Ling and all the staff. Thank you! If you are looking for an unpretentious and homely place to stay during your visit to Penang, need look NO further!
