Cozy and historic experience. I can recommend this accommodation to my family and friends with confidence. Penang itself is also cozy and relaxing city. A staff is well trained and kind enough. Especially, atmosphere of night is unique and unforgettable,

The beautiful amazing and stunning Blue Mansion is a dream come true. It really is a dream location to stay in and a great honour to have been able to reside here for only 1 night (which was not enough). We got there late and was greeted by Shiro. Shiro is a great host and always smiling and happy to...

I had an amazing time in the heritage site with superb commentary by the female owner sharing her real-life stories in conserving the place. It was engaging and insightful sharing. Thanks, I had a good and better understanding of the culture now. Give it a try, folks.

I chose this place to stay due to its comfortable location in Georgetown, rich historical past, and affordable price. On the last day of our stay I even went for the excursion they do twice a day - very interesting, they tell you about the original owner of the mansion, rich Chinese tycoon. I highly recommend! The hotel is really...

This is a great place to stay and the staff are friendly and kind. The rooms have real character and charm. It is such a relaxing stay after the mayhem of Georgetown. The breakfast is amazing and the beds are super comfortable. Will definitely stay again at the Blue Mansion Ben and Anna

It was in a quiet spot and very calming - conducive to de-stressing :) Room was bigger than in most other hotels - clean, cool and comfortable, although the fan was rather noisy. Housekeeping not all that efficient (mugs were left unwashed and tea bags not replenished). But the front-desk staff were very efficient and willing to help with my...

Joined one of three conducted tours of the mansion available. The guide, Ben is simply the best I have ever come across. He speaks very well. Very informative and interesting background stories relating to the life of Cheong Fatt Tze and the life of others living in this mansion before it becomes what it is today. Worth every second of...

I've been to many other countries in Asia and Europe and stayed in more expensive hotels but CFTM so far, is the best I've been to.
