Whatever you do, don't miss the Blue Mansion. Dating from the latter part of the 19th century, this mansion combines extreme solidity and great elegance. Renovated in the last 30 years, it retains all of its original form. Not the least attraction was the truly wonderful tour guide, an English speaking Chinese lady with an impish sense of humour,a performer's... More

It was amazing to stay in this historic building and to learn about its history! The bedrooms had lovely high ceilings and a feeling of calm! Our bathroom was large and modern. A great opportunity for photos as every corner you turn there is something worthy to photograph! The welcome was good but we would have liked bottle water and... More

My Penang friend recommended me this mansion as it is considered one of the most interesting heritage places well restored and preserved. We arrived on 17Aug morning 11.10am but unfortunately were denied access as the session has already started. The guard told us that there are only 3 sessions available ie 11.00am, 2.00pm and 3.30pm for weekdays and only English... More

We were fascinated by the history and architecture of this truly unique boutique hotel. We stayed during the initial renovations so it has since increased in luxuriousness. Truly a beautiful and one off experience we would highly recommend.

I stayed there for two nights with my boyfriend. The room was clean and modern, the position is very strategic because it's in the city center. The staff was very kind and friendly and the breakfast was good and with local and home made things. I'll go back there again.

We stayed at the Blue Mansion for 3 nights/4 days. It is stunning and a truly different experience from other hotels. The original house has been restored with great care and thought and the hotel offers modern facilities within the old house. It is good location for seeing Georgetown. The hotel staff are very attentive and Poh, the Assistant Manager,... More

Amazing experience! The surroundings are not so beautiful, however you will be absorbed by the hotel atmosphere as you go inside the hotel. Georgetown also worths for the art, culture, food. I highly recommend.

The receptionist was friendly, she gave a quick introduction to the mansion's facilities and services, as well as an introduction to the room. Check-in was prompt. We stayed in the Escoy guest room. It was beautifully restored, with a touch of old-world luxury. The bedroom and shower area were spacious and clean. I love the Peranakan artefacts and decor. However,... More

Romantic, atmospheric, attentive and in spite of the visitors not intrusive, comfortable and clean. Rooms are extremely charming - it is worth staying here (I write as someone staying in the mansion) just to have access to the house when there are no crowds. Only downside is slightly noisy aircon in the rooms.
