The Edison George Town (GPS: 5.4207, 100.33491) is a small luxury hotel in George Town, Penang. Located on Leith Street, it occupies the bungalow built by early 20th century tycoon Yeoh Wee Gark in 1906. The bungalow, commonly known as Yeoh Wee Gark Mansion, was designed by David Nathanial.

The Edison George Town is a member of SLH, the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World, a hallmark of quality. It offers 35 beautifully appointed rooms, serving as a serene oasis to discerning guests. At this upscale establishment, you get to experience the opulence of the early 20th century within the 21st century context.

Observing strict heritage guidelines enforced within the World Heritage Site, The Edison George Town was restored to its original appearance. The stucco and plasterwork were simply repaired and restored without any changes to the appearance of the building. Floor tiles are the original. Only when the original is beyond repair is it replaced with replicas that are as faithful to the actual as can be achieved.

On the rear end of the mansion is the kitchen area, called The Lounge, providing inhouse guest a free flow of snacks and drinks. There is various fruit juices as well as soft drinks and local snacks from yesteryear. The Lounge is comfortably spacious, allowing guests to relax and unwind. Beyond The Lounge is the garden area, with cabanas and water feature.
