The Edison George Town, Penang, Malaysia
Amazing Hotel
Service was exceptional from the moment we walked through the door. Perks such as the lounge with free drinks and snacks and the insight provided by local staff contributed to a memorable stay. We wouldn’t consider staying anywhere else in George Town and plan to return to The Edison in the very near future.

Great Hotel, fantastic staff.
Very well presented property, not flashy but classy decor with some nice touches. Staff are excellent and could not fault there enthusiasm and keenest to make one's stay memorable. Although the pool is not massive it provides an excellent opportunity to cool off after a hot days sightseeing. Really enjoyed the breakfast/eating area, both inside and outside seating available. Again staff do all they can to provide refreshments. Especially enjoyed the local varieties on offer and the free wine hour is an excellent idea. Overall can thoroughly recommend the Edison.

A gem in George Town
There are many boutique hotels out there these days, some much better than others, but the Edison George Town has to be up there as one of the best I have stayed in. Smack in the heart of colonial George Town is this wonderfully renovated hotel, brought back to life by the new owners. The restoration of the hotel has been extremely well done and attention to detail impeccable throughout. Our bedroom was well furnished and comfortable, the bathroom, spacious with fine smelling gels and shampoos as standard. There’s complimentary coffee available all day from the dining area as well as cold drinks and snacks. Everyday there’s complimentary cakes between 3 and 4pm followed by complimentary wine and nibbles between 6 and 7pm - wonderful. It does get very hot in George Town so the swimming pool is a welcome sight in the afternoon. The pool is long and narrow and is down the side of the hotel in the shade - it also has a jacuzzi! The staff are amazing and obviously love their job; they can’t do enough for you so take advantage, they will recommend places to visit, the best restaurants and of course shops - I really cannot fault their enthusiasm. If you’re visiting George Town then the Edison Hotel has to be a consideration, I would definitely recommend it. Note - there is a popular bar across the road at the front and there’s karaoke most nights - If you have a front bedroom you will hear it. The singing stops at midnight but request a side or rear room to avoid the noise.
