I was in Penang over the weekend for work and decided to stay at this lovely boutique hotel. Its an old mansion that has since been refurbished. Rooms, decor, amenities and appliances are new and well maintained. The team behind The Edison are professional yet still warm and welcoming. Rooms are relatively small but very cosy and comfortable! Breakfast is simple yet sufficient. Loved the warm shower, all day lounge, local old and school treats. Location wise, we walked almost everywhere, its so close by to Love Lane, which has tons of restaurants and coffee places. Will definitely be back here again.

So a few of us came to this beautiful hotel on 8th-11th April and truly, this place makes you feel like royalty. I have to applaud and honour the team behind The Edison for such excellent and friendly service by the all the staff; from the front desk, the cleaners, those taking care at the lounge room ​which is open 24 hours, and not to forget GM Ivan Khoo and Executive Director Rina Teoh for being so amazing and welcoming! Omgosh! This hotel is really well preserved, it has all the original tiles, the door, as well as the cast iron grills that came from Europe. I highly recommend that everyone should have at least this beautiful royalty experience ;)

Brought a group of marketer to check in for the all day pass with the purpose of having an offsite meeting to brainstorm some new ideas. Indeed is a excellent location to have meeting /group discussion if we choose to have it out of office. Excellent/ Friendly service by the all the staff especially GM Ivan Khoo. For sure will come back again in a bigger team, great effort and cheer.

We were here in penang for work project. Stayed with the edison for 4 days. Their 'home like' approach to the hotel property makes you feel so at home. That helped us to execute our work/project well. All their staff are very attentive and always accommodate your our needs. It is also a place where we could find sometime to chill and rest in the midst of the hectic work schedule - especially thier wine hour. Highly recommended for work stay and also leisure.
