The Edison Hotel Penang - George Town

The Edison Hotel Penang is located along Leith Street (Lebuh Leith) in the heart of George Town and occupies a beautifully restored former Colonial mansion, that was once home to the old Cathay Hotel.

Since its days as the Cathay Hotel, the building has undergone an extensive restoration to bring it back to its former glory, as well as tastefully extending the original building.

This new addition to the growing list of luxury Heritage Hotels in Penang, opened its door to paying guests for the first time in July, 2016 and since then, has become one of the most highly rated places to stay in the old part of the city.

Hotel Location / Area:

The hotel offers an excellent location for visitors to George Town, located along the relatively quiet Leith Street, directly opposite from the popular Red Garden Food Court and just a short walk down the road from the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion (the Blue Mansion).

Just the other side of the Red Garden (a couple of minutes walk away from the Edison) is Penang Road, the main tourist area of the city, with a wide range of hotels, shops, restaurants, pubs and bars, as well as the popular night-life area of Upper Penang Road, were you can enjoy a drink at one of the many outside drinking establishments or head to one of the night clubs.

The Edison George Town is also well located to reach the tourist attractions of the old part of the city, most of which are within a 10 to 15 minute walk from the hotel.
