Travel in Time at Cheong Fast Tze

“Staying at Cheong Fast Tze was amazing. The whole vibes and ethos have brought me back in time. The historical story of Cheong Fatt Tze really was something special to learn. I stayed for 2 nights in Chang Yu room, one from Liang Collection. Breakfast at the courtyard was such a dreamy — good meal […]

Really wonderful hotel, great service and location

I am so happy I picked this hotel for four nights in Penang. The building is just exquisite and one of a kind. Every inch is very warm and comforting while at the same time serving as a lovingly restored testament to Penang’s history and charm. The location is wonderful and it is easy to […]


Fabulous stay and 5 stars from me for the historical significance, opulence, decor and style of this late Chinese merchants residence. I felt honoured to have stayed there. Very lucky to have picked it as my place to stay whilst in Georgetown.

World Heritage Experience with Cheong Fatt Tze

There are only 3 houses in the world like this outside China – and you can be welcomed as an honoured guest in one of them. One of the most serene and delightful 3-day stays of our lives. Come and live like the Rockefeller of the East did a century ago, but with all modern […]

Heritage and cultural luxury

“Built around 1840 and now providing public accommodation, this is the luxury with character missing in today’s 5 (or more) star hotels. From the old fashioned door key to the huge rooms furnished to transport you back in time, the centre open courtyard with photos of those from the past or the ‘day beds’ along […]

A special experience

This was I think my favourite hotel ever. It is beautiful, it is well run, it is well-located, its existence is crucial to the history and culture of Penang. The restoration is superb. It was a joy and privilege to stay here.

Pretty as the pictures

We stayed here two nights rather than the three scheduled because of a change in itinerary. Room was gorgeous, pool and gardens the same. Probably the best breakfast we had throughout our stay in Malaysia (mostly in Borneo). Front desk staff helpful in answering our questions, set up a day long tour with local guide, […]

Beautiful Place, Great Staff

“The hotel is just beautiful. Definitely take the free tour! We stayed in “”Escoy”” and our room was amazing and very comfortable!! There were interesting snacks & drinks provided. The staff is extremely helpful and nice. The pool was the perfect afternoon break between long walks around. The breakfast was very good.”

Incredibly beautiful hotel!

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Blue Mansion for two nights. The rooms were really comfortable, with a good bed and pretty bathroom. The interior of the hotel was incredibly atmospheric and beautiful – like you made a time travel back in time. Also the breakfast included some really yummy options and we really […]

Feels like staying in a 19th century building

The property still retains its original feel, as the owners have used professional building conservation methods to restore the building instead of totally revamping the interior in accordance to modern interior design concepts. Recommend to attend the daily guided tours to know more about the history of the building and its 1st owner, Cheong Fatt […]
