The hotel itself is magnificent and a free tour through the mansion makes it even more so.The staff charming and its location ideal. However, The Red Garden next door has karaoke until 12.30AM - we found it OK but, if you are a light sleeper forget it!

Also known as The Blue Mansion, we stayed 4 nights in June in Chang Yu (the wine) room and had the most delightful experience. The hotel is undergoing extensive renovation and currently only 9 of the 18 rooms are available. There is hardly any noise disturbance from the current renovations and the staff believe it should all be completed by... More

Stayed 3 nights end of May in room Scholar. The room was enormous with fantastic Hugh comfy bed and a very roomy bathroom. Our room was located on the ground floor and setting was amazing with water garden right outside our room. Table and chairs to sit on where we enjoyed a drink prior to going out for the evening....

The building was very well restored and the guided tour was informative and interesting. The visit offered us a peek into the private life of a historical figure who played an important role in China and South East Asia. The architecture was a fascinating marriage of Asian and European elements. A must-see in Penang.

The hotel is not as large as we expected from the picture. As the hotel is also listed as one of the main attraction site in Penang, it was crowded during the time of our visit. But once the mansion tour was gone, it was lovely and peacefully as the guard allowed only guests to get in the mansion. The... More

On arrival at Cheong Fatt Tze or The Blue Mansion in Georgetown Penang, I as surprised by the number of people milling around the lobby. The management then advised me that the mansion runs three tours a day as the building is heritage listed and contains a lot of Penang history. Currently undergoing further renovations to one wing of the... More

A place like this is balm for the soul. I have been travelling my whole life, and always look for the most interesting place to stay in any town or city that I visit. It is a big call (and I admit, very dependent on state-of-mind at the time), but The Blue Mansion may be the finest place that I... More

This is really a beautiful hotel annex museum in Georgetown. I would recommend everybody to stay in the Cheong Fatt The Mansion also known as the Blue Mansion. We stayed here for two nights in recent renovated and beautiful decorated rooms with all facilities to be expected. The hotel is also a museum containing artifacts from the Cheong Fatt family....

This was an oasis of calm and tranquility to escape to in the middle of the heat of the day. The rooms were so luxurious, with incredible beds, duvets, towels and good air condition. I also have to compliment the design of the building. Such excellent feng shui and such beautiful combination of complex and simplistic architecture and interior design... More
