My wife and celebrated our wedding in this beautifully restored boutique hotel in Dec 2010 and are both hard core fans of The Blue Mansion. We will never forget the special and unique energy that we felt as we exchanged our vows in the central courtyard which we are told is where the "chi" is strongest in the entire house.... More

Lovely rooms, but noise from music venue next door blighted our stay. Drums thundering on and on stopped us from sleeping. What should have been a delightful stay became an exhausting experience. Such a shame because otherwise the place was interesting, historic and special.

We spent one night in the Mandarin room. Beautiful furniture, lots of space and good air conditioning. We wandered around the mansion and took lots of great photos. We had dinner in the restaurant in the evening. It was not cheap but it tasted very good. Make sure you go out on the balcony from the restaurant to appreciate the... More

Amazing to stay in such a fascinating building. We loved it here! A little dilapidated in parts but that's to be expected. A generous and friendly host. Very good location. Enjoyed the atmosphere and the story behind the building.

This hotel is charming and very unusual. A beautifully preserved old Chinese house that you can actually stay in. The room I had was large with a good shower and a very comfortable bed. No windows - the only downside. (You can open the shutters.) The open space is just gorgeous and it feels secluded and tranquil. The service was... More

I stayed for three nights in the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion with a friend. We liked it very much. So much history can be found just outside your door. Just don't be scared that you come across some tourists, as the mansion is also a tourist attraction. However, this is at set times and if you want peace and quiet... More

The staff is so very kind and helpful, it made us feel truly welcome. The restaurant serves very good food & it was nice to have a drink at the balcony before... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in July 2014. We loved the hotel and our room. We also took a guided tour of the entire mansion (offered for free for hotel guests). Next to the Blue Mansion is an excelent night food market with malay food, I recommend you to eat dinner there.

We have just stayed at The Blue Mansion for three nights and loved it. The building is amazing, our room was lovely, with antique furniture, fabulous bathroom and super comfy bed.
