Travellers' Choice
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 stays, guided tours; and beautifully tailored events on its premises. The favourite home of the “Last Mandarin and First Capitalist of China”, the Mansion is undoubtedly also the favourite home of George Town.

this exotic beautiful in Morocco blue mansion is eye catchy and instagramable, but this just the beginning of the whole culture experience there is way more your can explore in it. all staff are helpful and experienced all the time. Help us lifting our more than 30kg luggage to 1st floor. Give us local handmade dessert everyday. serve local food (everyday is different) in breakfast. highly recommend to join their tour so that you can have comprehensive background story of this mansion and how it is affected by WWII to now. Enjoy a Gezeng (Chinese instruments) performance in Fri evening in such a historical mansion is a perfect match, listening to the Chinese music and feel the breeze in atrium. we are very luckily here during Eid al-Fitr 'Feast of Breaking the Fast' that means the local traffic is very busy and we cannot buy any train tickets to continue our journey in the coming 3 days. But the staff here help us find all the possible way to go KL. Staff even would love to do a sandwich before we check out at 4:00 am. I would love to stay here again after we stayed here for 4 nights.

Excellent service from the staffs and instaworthy heritage hotel for an utter different experience. Almost every parts of the building has a wonderful story behind. My best place to chill and unwind definitely goes to their poolside garden. I can stay there for three straight hours. Not to mention, the bar serves good foods, wines and fresh fruit juices! Breakfast & high tea at the courtyard are definitely my highlights. Also, I've tried breakfast in Magga and the cafe is so cozy and colorful with picnic and sunshine vibes interior, you can take great Instagram shoots there too! Dinner in Indigo is much suggested for a fine dining experience with your loved ones and family during your stay. We even got complementary nyonya kuih with lovely notes sent to our room during evenings. Overall, it's a wonderful experience, fun fact I actually extended my stay just to collect more moments! Never getting enough of it, will definitely revisit one day! I would give cheong fatt tze mansion five stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Hidden gem of this place is Ali. He is the bar tender. Makes the best drinks ! So look for him and get yourself an old fashion. Great company great drinks. On another note, really nice place to stay but little vegan options on the menu for breakfast and their restaurant

My stays at The Blue Mansion never disappoint. The maximalist interior is always a great feast to the eyes. Not for those who seeks fast wifi connection though. Food at Indigo is amazing. I've had one of the best cod there-the way the chef cooked it was just perfect. The unusual ulam salad is a must too as the fusion between the traditional malay and western salad is just tastefully done. Last but not least, the underrated bar is one of the hidden gems in the mansion. Ask Ali for any drinks to your liking and he will amaze you with his mixology. I have had one of my best Old Fashion there, made by him. Dont forget to try out his Espresso Martinis. I am very sure you will retreat to your rooms happily tipsy as a finale of the night.

There is no other hotel like this. The architecture is unbelievable and the guided tours really highlight this - informative, engaging and an insight into how people used to live then (the Chinese rich and affluent). The rooms itself are clean, comfortable and quality of sleep is excellent. Dinner at Indigo was superb followed by an after dinner night cap in the bar - we took our drinks around the courtyard with the sound of the Kuchen player reverberating off the walls. Staying at the Blue Mansion was really an experience incomparable to anywhere else I have ever been to.
