What people say

This five-star boutique heritage hotel offers luxury and grandeur while keeping the charm and elegance of its bygone era intact. It has a swimming pool and a fine dining restaurant and has been used as a set for several Asian films.

For me, it was the perfect place to spend three nights in Penang.

I booked this last year and was so impressed when I arrived. It reminded me of my stay at Raffles Hotel Singapore in 2015 (when it was kind of affordable). Meyna was friendly and helpful when I checked in and the room was beautiful and spacious.

The hotel is a 10 minute walk to the Chowrasta market and also the Red Garden Food paradise is next door (people staying on the western side of the hotel – be prepared for night music from this Food court ).

The hotel has an amazing history so please join the tour while you are staying here (free for guests). I didn’t know the Mahjong scene from Crazy Rich Asians was filmed here.

Breakfast is delicious and Jalal offered excellent service and remembered our names. The freshly squeezed juices was a great touch.

The hotel provides earplugs which was useful as the guests upstairs tended to be heavy footed and we could hear their phone ping during the night.

Great to stay here – not sure how long the opportunity will exist as the hotel is UNESCO listed. Book ahead well in advance!

We spent three nights at Cheong Fatt Tze and loved every minute. The room was spacious and comfortable, as well as stylish and traditional. The mansion is absolutely beautiful, staff friendly and helpful, breakfast an absolute treat, location great, can’t complain at all. The mansion is a short walk to loads of food, particularly Red Garden next door. I spent my whole time at CFT marvelling at the building and feeling very happy to be able to stay in such a beautiful building. Thoroughly recommended!

My stay at Cheong Fatt Tze – The Blue Mansion was one of the most memorable for so many reasons. Service from the moment we checked in to the time we left was consistent and exemplary at every point of contact be it the front desk, housekeeping, F&B – all pleasant, courteous and warm. The rooms were not only spacious but just so delightful with a keen eye for detail. The silence and peace I experienced through my stay there was way beyond what I anticipated and that in itself made my stay at the Blue Mansion one of the best restful, tranquil, refreshing and magical. Thanks to all the staff at The Blue Mansion. I am already recommending you to all my friends.

Just Fabulous ~

We stayed a week and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The Blue Mansion is in a fabulous location & Friday evening jazz at Cafe Mangga was a definite highlight. From breakfast (and the ever present help from Jalal), the staff were exemplary. We especially loved being farewelled & welcomed back by the security guard at the gate- truly excellent. The bar staff were equally efficient & accommodating- truly faultless. Another review comments that the pool area isn’t wonderful- while this is true, it was still the perfect place to relax & read in the afternoon. Looking forward to a return visit~
