Time Out says

5 out of 5 stars

Now a luxury hotel, The Edison has led several interesting past lives, from a tycoon’s private estate to a brothel, and an opium den to a dance hall during the British occupation. The hotel’s name is an ode to Thomas Edison, inventor of the light bulb; hence the antique-looking Edison bulbs that hang above the lounge’s long table. All four types of accommodation – Deluxe King, Deluxe Twin, Deluxe Premium King and Suite King – are sparsely but tastefully decorated to minimise clutter and maximise tranquillity. Little details will keep us coming back, such as the quality toiletries from Appelles Apothecary & Lab and the complimentary nougat and orange infused water that was delivered to our room during the odd hours between lunch and dinner. Hand-woven bags are placed in each room should guests feel the itch to go shopping; this eco-friendly initiative to eliminate dependence on plastic bags is yet another plus point about hotel.
