Built by the Chinese merchant Cheong Fatt Tze towards the end of the 19th century, the house displays influences from the design heritage of his native land, local Malaysian aesthetics, and colonial British style. Its distinctive blue coloration was achieved by mixing lime with the natural dye made from indigo plants, creating a hue popular during the colonial era.

We stayed here 3 nights in the Scholar room (this hotel only have 18 rooms which have different name) unfortunately our room is so close to the food court and a new nightclub where the music on nightly (hotel provides earplugs for the guests in room). Soon after the check in, you feel like traveling back in time, the beautiful restoration to its glorious day with modern amenities, in room safe, iron/board ,comfy bed, clean, coffee machine with pods and complementary fruits, biscuits and juices every day. The staffs are very attentive and helpful. Highly recommended
The Blue Mansion is a perfect combination of history and high level custom service. The building is gorgeous, like something out of a movie really, and the service personal and extremely high quality. We'll definitely come back!
