This was our first stay at the Blue Mansion- something we'd wanted to do since touring the house during another trip. Everything about the house is magical- the architecture, the history, the furnishings. You are staying in a museum, but with all the amenities of a modern hotel. The staff are unfailingly kind and helpful, always with a smile and... More

The Blue Mansion is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Discovering the mansion is akin to discovering a piece of heritage and history of George Town. The details of the artwork and and ornaments of the place are just immersively mesmerising. Don't forget to ask the tour guide to explain the meanings behind these beautiful artworks.... More

This places is the definition of calm and peace in the bustling city of Penang. The outside is impressive and amazing, and the lobby very ornate. The breakfasting courtyard is beautiful, and the side courtyards are very Zen, with pools, comfortable seats, and cool breezes.

During my last trip to Penang, I took the outstanding tour of the Blue Mansion. This time, I took the tour and I stayed there. My room was large and comfortable.

It is a sea of tranquility. The building itself is gorgeous and its' slight shabbiness adds to its' appeal. The rooms are done in dark wood Chinese style furniture set off by white walls and white bed linen.

Our guesthouse owner recommended we visit here rather than the Green House because of our interest in architecture - we're glad we heeded this advice. We were lucky to arrive just in time for the 11am tour which was conducted well by a lively guide and gave us excellent insight into both Cheong Fatt Tse and the restoration process. He... More

Loved this hotel. It is a perfect place to return to after a hard day being a tourist. The court yards have a calming effect and the rooms are both modern but retain their character. I would heartily recommend this hotel. Daniel and his staff couldn't do enough for us. I hope that we can return one day.

The mansion is admitted only by time ticket with a guide. The group we joined in is quite big. There are not many rooms that are allowed for visitors: only the main lobby, courtyard, and small exhibition rooms upstairs. Rooms on the side wings are converted to guest house. The Mansion is restored to its former glory, with beautiful furnitures.... More

“Music from the night market is very slightly audible on the left wing of the hotel. It didn't bother me, but if you are very sensitive to this you might want to request a room in the right wing (as you face the building)”
