The Edison, George Town, Penang.
The Edison is a refurbished Chinese mansion/Boutique hotel on the edge of the Georgetown historic district. The property itself is very charming and the staff is excellent. However, it is a boutique hotel, and does not necessarily have all the facilities of a larger hotel (e.g., elevators, a concierge, etc.).

Very close to perfect place!
This is definitely one of those places I tell friends about. Everything was great, except for their WiFi issue and loud music from neighborhood. Could not log into their WiFi so we were given their staff WiFi, which was also spotty. I'd rather have no WiFi than to have one that keeps dropping. Beside that, everything was excellent. Staff was very very nice. The late afternoon wine offering was really nice to have and the hotel is amazing. There were loud music coming from across the street every night we were there. Otherwise, it was one of my favorite places we've stayed and would recommend to anyone visiting Penang.

Noisy boutique hotel with non-functioning wifi
We wanted to love our stay at Edison, but alas, our stay was mediocre to put it nicely. The hotel itself is quite nice, but its proximity to an outdoor karaoke is unfortunate. It can be noisy at night after 9PM and front facing rooms/suites are not recommended. Breakfast offering is extremely limited. Wifi service is poor and in need of an upgrade. Service was meh - my room was not cleaned when we returned at 3PM and there was no note attempting service when we put the DND sign afterwards. Good air-conditioning, though!

Beautiful boutique hotel with few quirks
Nicely designed hotel. Proximity to outdoor karaoke is not great as it can be noisy at night, especially on the front-facing rooms. Service is well meaning but not polished. Wifi service is non-existent on the upper floor. Breakfast is limited in choice. Mattress is on the hard-side.

We loved our stay at The Edison George Town hotel! The staff was so friendly, and were always ready to offer suggestions on where to go and answer any questions. It was so convenient that the lounge was always open with free drinks and snacks. The decor of the hotel was really beautiful, and we were really comfortable there. We only wished we could have stayed there longer!
