Enjoying a fantastic location amid the history and heritage of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of George Town, The Edison puts its guests on the doorstep of the vibrant city’s mouth-watering street food scene and striking colonial architecture. The hotel itself reflects George Town’s historical character, given that it is set in a restored mansion dating from 1906, though it combines this with a contemporary chic character in its décor and presentation.

Offering a choice of 35 rooms and suites, guests will enjoy luxury, comfort and style through each classification, as well as bright and airy spaces in which to relax. The same décor and style are applied throughout each room or suite, with simplistic and considered furnishings adding a homely feel.

There are various communal spaces throughout the hotel where guests can relax or socialise, including The Courtyard, forming the epicentre of the property and symbolising the elegance and historical heart of The Edison, with features such as decorative frescos and original cast-iron columns. Guests can also choose to linger over a cocktail or two in the shady cabanas or worship the sun with a refreshing soak in the pool. Meanwhile, The Lounge presents a combination of a breakfast venue and lounge area, considered a gathering place to socialise, settle down with a book or enjoy a snack and drink or two.
