Our Guests Share Their Experiences
The Crown Jewel of Georgetown!
We stayed for 3 nights at the Blue Mansion in the Nanyang Suite and were blown away by the architecture, service, and grounds of this UNESCO World Heritage site. Hotel guests receive a private tour of the mansion at night, which we took and we taught the history of its original owner as well as the grounds- a nice touch to not have to deal with the crowds during the daily tours for non-guests.
Our room was spectacular- high ceilings, a big bathroom, and one of the most comfortable beds we’ve ever slept in(still thinking about how good this bed was)! Our room had a door that led directly to the pool, which we used everyday to cool down from the heat between exploring the town. There were also desserts delivered to our door every afternoon that were a very nice treat.
Breakfast was above and beyond what you’d expect from a hotel, with both prepared food and a menu to order- perfect. Anyone visiting Penang should experience staying in this historic hotel!
Cheong Fatt Tze (the Blue Mansion) is one of the nicest hotels we’ve ever stayed at. It is absolutely beautiful and very authentic thanks to the 6 years’ restoration works. No wonder that scenes of many famous movies were filmed there (e.g. Crazy Rich Asians and Indochine).
The personnel are absolutely great.

The Blue Mansion Lives Up to its Name
I knew that when I’m in Penang that I’d want to stay at the Blue Mansion especially after watching it featured in Crazy Rich Asians. The hotel is majestic from the outside especially at night when it was all lit up. Be ready to be wowed because the the interior is just as amazing and full of characters. I’m not one to take crazy amount of pictures but I felt compelled to take a lot of pictures of the hotel. Every nook and cranny is instagram worthy (if you’re into insta).
The room I stayed in was spacious and ‘old’ in a nice way. The ‘lobby’ does get crowded during the mansion tour hours so it can be a little chaotic when you are checking in during those times. The hotel is located in central Georgetown and is in the vicinity of other renowned boutique hotels.
All in all I’m glad I got to stay at the Blue Mansion even if only for a night.
Enjoyed a lovely 1 night stay at the mandarin room that fits our fam of 4..the place has been restored beautifully ..preserving the old and adding the modern comforts of newer and luxurious hotels..the staff were friendly and we enjoyed our breakfast at the courtyard and cocktails at the bar..the tour of the mansion was the icherry on top.. will def stay here again..
A pleasant journey
From the moment of arrival, you have already felt the enthusiasm. The furnishings of the rooms, the layout of the corridors, the attitude of the waiters, and the dizzying indigo blue make you forget you are in the noisy city center. Remember to take part in the guided tour of the old house, you will fall in love with it. In addition, if you live downstairs, try breakfast or afternoon tea at the small table in front of the room, which is another enjoyment.T By the way, the commentator named Sally was humorous, and the interaction with the group members was lively and interesting. We liked her very much and took a group photo.
Must Visit Place in Penang
Glad to join the tour on Friday afternoon. Surprisingly, our tour was guided by the owner of Blue Mansion. She’s such an outstanding story teller. She’s sharing a history but she could make it relevant so you don’t want to miss out her word. She’s also very interactive so you won’t be bored and your concern can be addressed. What a fun tour! I lf you want to be a great story teller, I think you can learn from this place
The building is also gorgeous. Really worth the ticket admission. However, we might not be able to wander around without the guide. You are only allowed to stay around the park due to the privacy of the residence. Therefore, if you have the chance to take a picture, just do it
