This is the official "attraction" listing for the Cheong Fatt Tze Mansion on TripAdvisor. There is also a listing for the hotel - please search for the same name under "Hotels" on Tripadvisor. Come Home to Historic Splendour 'ONE OF 10 GREATEST MANSIONS IN THE WORLD' LONELY PLANET 2011 A Grand Mansion conceived and constructed by a Grand Man; an eminent edifice which History calls Home; a peerless representation of the Paradigm Chinese Courtyard House – the Cheong Fatt Tze “Blue” Mansion has been perfectly poised for over a century on firm foundations of architectural, cultural and historic superlatives. Essentially an ‘heirloom with rooms’, today, the Mansion readily bequeaths its charms to visitors who are able to indulge in Exclusive Heritage Homestays; **Guided Tours; and Tailored Functions on its premises. Reputedly the favourite home of the “Last Mandarin and First Capitalist of China”, the Mansion is undoubtedly the favourite home of George Town.

The mansion looks very inviting from the outside, so we were really looking forward to seeing inside. Given the tour times we chose 11am and it was pretty busy. Whilst the guide had a strong voice it didn't carry to everyone. It was clear too...More

We recently visited Cheong Fatt Tze, it was a pleasant tour, but the architecture and museum pieces were not as good as other mansions we visited in Penang. This may be doing Cheong Fatt Tze a disservice as it is also a hotel and day...More

Really enjoyed our tour of the Blue Mansion. The building was well preserved and had a fascinating history, brilliantly told by our bubbly tour guide.

This house and hotel is beautiful. The colour of the wall, the indoor patio and the garden are very well restored. The english guide speaks a lot but she's good.

This Boutique Hotel is very well located... near the "epi-centre" of Penang/Georgetown, and the very interesting "Heritage Area"!! Although small, the two restaurants and luxurious rooms offer the guest many conveniences-- and a very high level of helpful "Local Knowledge"!! The building itself has an...More
