The Edison George Town

Begin a journey of cultural and culinary discovery from this boutique mansion in George Town

Presiding over historical George Town, The Edison is a vision of architectural splendour. Heritage features meet period furnishings to create a whimsical journey into Penang’s past. Linger over cocktails in the shady cabanas, or unwind next to the swimming pool. Then head out to experience the tastes and temptations of the city beyond.

Elegant suites are decked out with intimate details and artisanal accessories. Vibrant jade accents bring the timeless grace of this old mansion to life. Then there’s the bright, central courtyard that provides a place to pause in the city’s midst or you can sink into the comfort of The Edison’s library.

Step beyond the mansion gates into a bustling fusion of cultures. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, George Town is built upon 500 years of trading. Wander a labyrinth of streets steeped in faded colonial glory. Sip on freshly roasted coffee or stroll the quayside in search of freshly caught seafood delicacies. Knowing you have the tranquil haven of The Edison’s cool white walls to return to at the end of it all is just as wonderful.


Enjoy your stay!

Feels like coming home..

This is probably our 5th time staying at The Edison and we were pleased to be upgraded to the suite this time with the super peak Chinese New Year booking. We were specially please with the generous space and the earplugs prepared for the night with the celebration fireworks & fire crackers in the area.

A gem in the “Pearl”

The Edison is a refreshing break from the Marriott/Hilton/IHG cookie cutter formula — Old World charm with a modern welcoming vibe. From the moment you step into this meticulously restored Colonial mansion, the staff welcome you like extended family. The pictures don’t lie — it’s a handsome property. Read more[SPLIT]Read less What was originally a kitchen has been turned into an all-day lounge with complimentary refreshments/snacks. There’s also a small lap pool and outdoor seating area where you can enjoy the daily wine/cheese reception, also gratis. It’s in the middle of the action (the nightly “live” entertainment across the street can be an issue for light sleepers, so be warned or ask for a room in the rear) and convenient for walking to many sights in Georgetown. But what really “made” the stay is how EVERY member of the staff seems engaged and anxious for guests to make the most of their time in this “Pearl of the Orient.” (Yah, Penang isn’t the only one to claim that moniker, lol)

Excellent stay

Great location for walking around Georgetown. Old school building with character although some things like fitting paint could do with a little makeover. The staff are the best thing about this place. Nothing was a problem and a couple of problems we had were sorted efficiently. There are some problem Read more[SPLIT]Read lesswith noise due to location of the hotel, but recommend a room towards the back and you are provided with ear plugs if needed. Breakfast was ok with enough choice and made to order eggs etc available. Afternoon snacks and evening wine hour are nice with decent South Australian wines. Met the owner Eddy, who was excellent company. Overall, thoroughly recommend this place.

Made us feel like home

We were greeted with a big welcome. Staffs were welcoming and extremely polite. Great location and close to tourist sites. Their dining area was a treat. Guests were invited to complimentary tea with local delights and cheese and wine before dinner. The only negative feedback was the limited choices Read more[SPLIT]Read lessat breakfast. They don’t restock food if they have finished so I would recommend going to breakfast early.
