A meticulously restored Anglo-Colonial mansion set in the heart of historical George Town, The Edison George Town, Penang is now a lifestyle hotel offering a combination of luxurious comfort, exceptional guest service and gracious hospitality where guests experience a sense of uniqueness.

With 35 luxuriously appointed guestrooms, and as a member of the Small Luxury Hotels Of The World, the hotel strives to offer a truly memorable insight of George Town, where guests are guided toward the exploration and discovery of the culturally rich and vibrant neighbourhood around the hotel.

The hotel’s wide usage of locally made crafts and the engagement of talented artisans showcase Penang’s cultural diversity and heritage charms, which enhance the hotel’s integration with the local community.

Many of the staff are able to curate street-food recommendations around the hotel’s neighbourhood which further build on what the guest can experience in George Town. Hotel’s Executive Director Rina Teoh adds, “We hire locals who have all grew up here, so they can give the very best and most authentic recommendations.”
