A comfortable oasis in Penang

We had an amazing stay at the Edison. The staff were incredibly warm and welcoming, and exceedingly polite. We felt like family. Our room was comfortable and well stocked with everything we could need including water and fresh passionfruit marshmallows brought to our room daily. The Lounge in the hotel, for breakfast, snacks, drinks, afternoon tea, and wine and cheese were incredible. Only downside was the proximity to a market across the street with some loud live music. Otherwise we would highly recommend a stay at the Edison. Can there be an Edison everywhere we go?

Amazing hotel with excellent service

From arriving to leaving we were looked after so we’ll by the staff who had genuine interest in our travels and us. The use of the hotspot device was great to get the cheaper Grab taxis. We enjoyed the breakfasts and the wine tasting each evening was particularly pleasant and not something we’d experienced before. All in all a fantastic 3 night stay and we’d love to return one day.
