Heritage and culture meet luxury...

“My family and I stayed at The Edison for 3 nights and were absolutely wowed by splendor of the building and its thoughtfully restored interior. It is evident that care, attention and effort have been put into preserving the heritage of the building, yet ensuring that its guests experience ultimate luxury. On this note, The Edison distinguishes itself from the other restored properties by sensitively injecting a contemporary feel to its interior to provide maximum comfort for its guests. 

The Edison is conveniently located in George Town, a UNESCO World Heritage, and walking distance to many heritage sites and great food spots. It offers a home after from home. Everyone's exceptionally friendly and helpful. 

A big shout-out to Ivan Khoo, Charles Ayerru and team for making us feel at home at all times, and to Mr Eddie Tan for offering us special tips on places to visit and have meals!”

No faults at all

“Hotel is beautifully restored, everything about the style of the hotel is amazing. The staff are extremely friendly, happy, helpful and give a real personalised service to each guest. Unexpected free breakfast, afternoon tea, stocked fridge, snacks and even an wine tasting hour every day - FREE. Massive rooms (biggest rooms I have stayed at in a hotel), all the comforts you need, everything is clean, neat and tidy. The staff are the reason I would come back and stay at this hotel again, they are simply amazing!”

Beautiful Property in the Middle of Historic District

“The property was absolutely beautiful and the accommodations were very nice. It reminded me of this scene right out of Casablanca.

The nightly wine hour was a very nice touch. Cold beer would also be a great way to break the heat of the day from shopping and site seeing. The property is in a great location to great restaurants, shopping, and exploring.

The staff was very helpful. One of the staff was extremely service oriented and sharp. Her name was Mel and she was one of the best hostesses of any place I've ever been and I travel all over the world....I had an issue with my computer and needed to set up another monitor... Mel got this done for was a big thing because I was there for business for 10 days!

The one thing the Chairman, Mr. Tan, should seriously consider adding is an exercise room with a few elyptical trainers and treadmills for business guests.”
