The Edison George Town takes its place in a former Hokkien tycoon’s Anglo-Chinese mansion built in the early 20th Century. Combining the colonial past and oriental charm of Penang, the hotel offers a quirky take on heritage. The fresh concept combined with an air of timeless elegance offers a comfortable blend of modern and traditional elements with quality and character found in equal measures. Jade inspired accents, patterned tilework, bone china inspired art and warm tones mixed into a light and airy environment creates the perfect backdrop for the modern day traveller. The guestrooms reflect the colonial past with its monochromatic setting, whilst injecting modernity with contemporary furnishings. This juxtaposition of past and future makes this 35 room boutique hotel truly encapsulate the charm of the orient.
